LighTelligence: A lighting system to optimize the circadian rhythms.

LighTelligence is a lighting system that helps to provide the best type of light waves at specific times during the day for the user. Bright light around 3000 K is used to wake and for most daytime hours. A raspberry pi3 controls the timing system of a yellow and red light to help support melatonin production by blocking most harmful light waves two hours before bedtime. The system consists of a desk top lamp, an orbital pendant chandelier, and a baseboard night light.
