At Acoustic Designs Group, our award-winning, certified lighting designer, Kevin Flower, understands the power of light. Kevin is known for using state-of-the-art technology to create beautiful and functional lighting spaces. He realizes that, more than ever, people are seeking homes that provide a sanctuary—an oasis to relax and revel in the beauty and ease of living with the right combination of lighting design and technology.
Great lighting not only provides a way to see in the dark, but it can also affect our moods, wellness, and productivity. Ketra, acquired by Lutron in 2018, designed an advanced lighting system boasting dozens of patented innovations that changed the way we illuminate our homes and how we experience the indoors.
In addition to dynamic, full-spectrum lighting that gives designers and homeowners an infinite number of colors of light to choose from, they also created an innovative natural Ketra lighting solution that provides comfort, well-being, and beauty. Let’s see how it’s done and how it’s transforming homes in Scottsdale, AZ.

Ketra’s Natural Light
Ketra’s Natural Light solution provides the highest quality light that seamlessly emulates daylight. Also known as human-centric and tunable lighting, it brings daylight indoors by information received from a geolocator, ensuring the natural light inside your home matches the natural light outside your home. Throughout the day, your lighting hue, temperature, and intensity change, mimicking the light outside.
Now, your interior basks in the warm orange glow of sunrise before transforming to the cool blue colors of midday that help us focus. By day’s end, the lighting has changed to the amber glow of sunset, telling your body it’s time to relax.
The Healing Power of Light
Lighting has long been known to affect our moods and emotions. For example, we associate blue with a calm, tranquil sea and yellow with sunshine and feelings of hope and happiness. Natural light is also directly tied to our energy, well-being, and sleep patterns.
For thousands of years, our ancestors evolved alongside the natural light of the sun. They rose when dawn broke the horizon and retired when darkness fell, and their bodies’ internal biological timeclocks adjusted accordingly. For example, when the sunlight enters our eyes in the morning, we produce serotonin, the neurotransmitter associated with happiness and focused attention. As evening draws near, our bodies produce melatonin, the hormone related to healthy sleep.
Unfortunately, according to the EPA, today, we spend about 90% of our time indoors, significantly affecting our sleep-wake cycle and the hormones that have defined our natural rhythms. Ketra’s natural light changes that, promoting a well-balanced internal timeclock that helps us sleep soundly at night and remain focused during the day.
Of course, words can’t offer the whole experience of natural light. However, our showroom can. To help people understand the full effects of today’s lighting systems and experience them firsthand, we developed a 7,500-square-foot showroom that showcases Ketra’s lighting. Explore this dynamic lighting technology and enjoy our high-fidelity audio brands while you’re there.
