The cities cannot be as they are today without the famous lighting especially the big one like Hong Kong, New York or maybe Las Vegas. Can you imagine these cities with a normal lighting.
These cities and much more are spending too much for lighting but as the technology has become more and more advance there are solutions to cut the costs. So here is the led lighting. But as it turns out, these new lights come with some surprising consequences.
Our cities are finally getting the makeover that will turn them into the futuristic visions foretold decades ago: They’re getting LED lighting.
LED lights provide much greater illumination with cooler light.
Moreover, the LED lights greatly change the appearance of cities and allow for better, clearer vision at night.
Just look at the lights we used to live with, scattering orange-y, yellow-y light across the pavement.
Some cities switching to LED lights have taken it a step too far, generating complaints about the harshness of the lighting.
In their warning, the AMA recommends that lighting not exceed a CT above 3000 Kelvin.
Just more clearly to explain you more clearly a candle gives off a CT of about 1800K, while an incandescent bulb has a CT of about 2400K. Some of the LED lights being installed around the country have a CT above 4000K. They contain a cool blue wavelength that can scatter when it hits the eye.
So although the road might show up with more clarity at night, the lights can actually damage the retina.
What’s more, the bright lights contribute that much more to light pollution, so they can throw off people’s sleep rhythms — and animals’ as well, and shake up their migratory patterns.
The recommendations are following
convert to LED lighting; but, use the lowest possible emission of blue light when doing so; and shield the LED installations to reduce glare and possible harm.
