IHG tries new lighting technology to help guests sleep better

1 Comment

InterContinental Hotels Group has partnered with Healthe by Lighting Science, a global leader in innovative LED lighting solutions, to pilot the use of state-of-the-art circadian lighting to help guests sleep better while traveling.

Crowne Plaza Atlanta Airport will be the first IHG property to install the JOURNI Mobile Task Light in guest rooms.

Brian McGuinness, Senior Vice President of Global Guest Experience Shared Services, IHG, said, “At IHG, we want to make sure our guests are getting the best night’s sleep possible across our 5,600 hotels and portfolio of more than 15 brands. We are continually testing ways we can enhance the guest experience, loyalty and ultimately, owner value. Our circadian lighting technology pilot is the latest example of the work we are doing to innovate the guest experience. We’re excited to be the first hotel company to pilot Healthe’s JOURNI product and are already working on what’s coming next.”

Designed using Healthe’s patented GoodDay and GoodNight spectrum technologies, JOURNI allows access to the alertness and focus-enhancing spectrum during the day, and then changes to the warm, sleep-enhancing spectrum at night.

 JOURNI is designed to also help regulate the body’s circadian rhythm or 24-hour internal body clock which effects important biological functions such as sleep, hormone levels, body temperature and metabolism.

Too bad that difference wasn't taken into consideration when LED lighting was first designed and marketed as an improvement over incandescent or fluorescent lighting.

LED lighting is especially annoying and detrimental to one's health after the sun goes down. Also, adding a dot of it as on/off indicators to switch plates, small appliances and screens lights up a room so that it is impossible to sleep without an eye mask. Even so, the pituitary gland registers that light through the skull which results in poor quality sleep after working (to death) all day.
