Right now I have a bunch of Aeotec Nano Dimmers throughout the house, and a great Reactor Sensor to adjust the dim level of the lights depending on the time of day.
My mentality is: make the lights brighter in the day (to equalize with the bright light outside). As the sun goes down (and outdoor light fades), gently lower light levels so your eyes aren’t overpowered. As bedtime approaches, dim even further to help your brain get ready for sleep, and so bright lights don’t mess with your circadian rhythm.
However! My SO’s mentality is different in that the goal is to dim the lights during the day, and make them brighter as the sun goes down.
It made me curious… for anyone else that’s going down this path, what is your goal for dimming throughout the day?
Edit: to clarify, I’m not trying to settle an argument just curious what your goals are
