Color Temperature of CKRA LED Lighting

Measured in degrees Kelvin (K), color temperature is how we CKRA measure how "cool" or "warm" a light is. Yellow and red hues (like the flames of a fire) are considered warm, and blue-green colors (like light from an overcast sky) are considered cool. A higher cool light color temp (5700-7000K) is what we consider “Bright White” light, A cool light color temp (4600-5600K) is what we consider “Cool White” light, OR “Day White” a medium or neutral color temp (3600-4500K) is what we consider "natural white," and lower color temps (2700–3500K) are considered “warm light.”
Cooler light is preferred for visual tasks because it produces more contrast and is considered by many as a healthier, natural light. In night lighting applications cool light improves “Scotopic vision” which allows for more efficient sight adaption of the Rods in the eyes. This efficiency allow for better vision of objects in low light situations. Warm light is preferred for living room spaces and restaurants because it is often more "flattering" to skin tones, wood, and clothing (and is what we are accustomed to growing up under incandescent lighting).
