The Ario Lamp Prevents Morning Grogginess By Mimicking Real Sunlight

Tuesday, November 24, 2015


Today, Gadget Explained previews a nifty plug and play lamp solution called Ario, which uses advanced LED technology and cloud connectivity to combat grogginess in the morning by aiding sleep, improving mood, helping manage weight, reducing stress and improving overall well-being. Ario is WiFi-connected and essentially mimics the light of the sun to keep your body clock in sync.

How Ario Works
Ario is easy to set up and use. Just plug in the lamp into the wall, connect it to your WiFi via a simple phone app and sit back and enjoy, while Ario figures out where you are and comes up with a lighting schedule that evolves with you over time. Ario works automatically. If you unplug the lamp for days or weeks and plug it back in, Ario knows what to do, even when the WiFi is down.

Ario Key Features
  • Light delivery: We provide a bright, 2400 lumens, wide color range for Ario, from 6500K blue-rich white light (mid-day sun), to 1800K amber white light (candle/fire light). We selected high performance LEDs used in large volumes by the general lighting industry to keep costs low and use custom light sources for the low end of the color range.
  • Directional control: Ario has two light engines, a purpose-built and highly-integrated LED controller, and Particle P1 WiFi module which together provide Ario’s lighting power and control. To get the most brightness while maintaining comfort, we’ve carefully engineered efficient large diffusers and properly shaded them to reduce glare.
  • Autonomous, easy control: Ario is equipped with a battery-backed real-time clock and program storage so it operates properly, and awakes after power-down knowing what color and direction are called for, even if your router or internet is down. Ario responds to buttons on the lamp, the switch on the wall, or remotely with your mobile phone, tablet, or computer.
  • Learning algorithms: Over time, Ario safely and securely identifies patterns in how you use the lamp through machine learning and refines its schedule to deliver lighting specific to your needs. It does this using cloud computing as part of the Ario web service available from anywhere.
  • Energy-efficient and long-lasting: Since Ario is solid-state, it uses only 1/5 of the energy of equivalent incandescent lighting. Our LEDs are properly driven and heatsinked to deliver more than 35,000 hours of life. The power supply is sized for minimum quiescent power draw and maximum overall efficiency. To save power further, Ario may be turned off completely like any lamp and still delivers light color and direction appropriate to your saved schedule.
