 You can easily adjust the color or brightness of your Ario using the buttons on the lamp or the controls available from the lamp (round) icon in the app. Generally speaking, cooler (more blue-white) and brighter light makes us alert, able to concentrate,​ and brightens our mood. The Ario during the day can supplement and work with natural or other lights in the room. During the darker months or on a cloudy day, Ario can help cheer you up. We recommend using brighter colors in the evening only for brief periods (an hour or less) only as exposure to blue light at night interrupts melatonin production. You can easily adjust the color or brightness of your Ario using the buttons on the lamp or the controls available from the lamp (round) icon in the app. Generally speaking, cooler (more blue-white) and brighter light makes us alert, able to concentrate,​ and brightens our mood.

-In an absence of natural light during the day, you can set the Ario lamp to a warmer tone to help you relax. In the evening, the Ario will automatically change to a warmer color also helping you relax.. We suggest that other lights in the room be dimmed or off, especially overhead lights.+In an absence of natural light during the day, you can set the Ario lamp to a warmer tone to help you relax.

 You can set the Ario in the evening to light in both directions with a warm color by pressing the top button on the lamp or running the brightness slider in the app all the way to the right. This will provide lots of light while minimizing the impact on melatonin production. You can set the Ario in the evening to light in both directions with a warm color by pressing the top button on the lamp or running the brightness slider in the app all the way to the right.

 Your lamp is equipped with a sensor to detect your presence and turn your Ario on or off automatically. You can set it a variety of ways. You can set the time-period when the sensor is active, for example, to ignore motion during the hours you are in bed. Your lamp is equipped with a sensor to detect your presence and turn your Ario on or off automatically.
