As the pandemic drags on, we need disinfectants not only in public spaces, but in our own homes. That’s why Therapy 365-V1, a product by the landscape lighting manufacturing startup, DAONS, has been gaining traction.
Therapy 365-V1 is revolutionizing the world of lighting with its LED smart sterilizing light that also doubles as a mood light.
“Today’s disinfecting lights use UV-C, UV-B, or UV-A, but even minimal exposure from these types of UV light can have serious effects on the body – especially for the ozone-emitting UV-C products,” the Therapy 365-V1 marketing team told us. “To make a completely safe disinfecting light, we came up with the visible-light emitting Therapy 365-V1.”
The light used in Therapy 365-V1 has no adverse effects on the human body, and meets the IEC 62471 standard for LED lighting products. Therapy 365-V1 is equipped with 32 disinfecting-light emitting chips, and uses both 405 nm visible light and infrared light. This means that the light emitted is completely safe for us, even over continued use, while still disinfects dangerous contaminants.
Therapy 365-V1’s disinfecting abilities have been tested against dangerous microorganisms in our daily lives, and were found to be 99.9% effective at disinfecting coronavirus particles. The light emitted creates singlet oxygen inside the cells of bacteria and mold, destroying the lipids, protein, and nucleic acids via oxidation – eliminating any viruses and bacteria.
When Therapy 365-V1’s motion sensor detects movement, the device switches to white light mode. This prevents any potential risk from the sanitizing process. When using Auto Mode, the white light will turn on for 30 seconds upon detecting movement, and when no movement is detected, the device will switch back to disinfect mode. The sensor has a radius of 1.5 meters at 140 degrees. Even the slightest movements will activate the white light mode, so Therapy 365-V1 will detect your pets, too.
The sensor board in the lighting device controls the motion sensor, power, and switches. The sensor board is pre-programmed to act based on the location value, and after 5 hours, the lighting is pre-configured to turn off. Therapy 365-V1 also lets you use green mood lighting for more eye-friendly lighting at night.
The product package includes Therapy 365-V1, the power adapter, cable holder, two-sided silicon tape, the user manual, and sterilization reports. Therapy 365-V1 uses a blend of aluminum, ABS, and PC material, and with dimensions of 600 x 55 x 22 mm, and weighs in at just over 1 pound, so you can easily use it in the kitchen, bedroom, hall, under your desk, in a closet, or nearly anywhere.
You can find the sterilizing smart LED light, Therapy 365-V1, on Kickstarter this February. Discounted packages are available based on your selected backing. Find out more by visiting their Kickstarter page.
