Lighting that adapts to the needs of the occupants is becoming more and more important, whether that is in a commercial application or in a residential property. That is why Rako has refreshed its app to now allow quick and easy control of colour temperature and light intensity with simple to use touch sliders. This means adjusting lighting to suit the client’s needs for a particular task or to link lighting with individual circadian rhythms is much more straightforward. For example, in a residential setting homeowners might want a bright, white light in the kitchen for task lighting and then a warm, low level light would be preferable to relax in the evening.

As well as colour temperature, the App can control both wired and wireless Rako systems, allowing easy hand-held control of lighting, curtains and blinds. Connecting via a Rako Hub, the App allows programming and storing of new scene levels, offers colour wheel control for RGB and RGBW fittings and ‘holiday mode’ enables users to record and replay their lighting simulating an occupied property.

Paul Wafer, Director at Rako comments: “Tuneable colour temperature and its perceived benefits are a big opportunity for lighting designers. For obvious reasons, customers are interested in the wellbeing advantages of circadian rhythm lighting, and lighting designers can support this demand with a Rako system. This time of year, lighting is extremely important to keep people’s energy up and it’s our job to make the technical side easier for the end user. Control systems and our new refreshed App have a key part to play in that.”

The Rako app can be downloaded from the App Store and on Google Play. Connected via a Rako Hub, which acts as a central point for a Rako installation, the app provides the ultimate in flexible control of the Rako lighting system from local area network or anywhere in the world via the internet.
