About Brilli
What are the benefits of Brilli lighting?

Most indoor lighting has one benefit, such as energy efficiency or light quality. In contrast, Brilli’s circadian lighting with patent-pending WellBright Spectrum™, has wellness benefits to help get your sleep-wake cycle in sync, reduce stress,minimize eyestrain, boost your mood, and increase alertness and energy — all without sacrificing light quality or energy efficiency; and Brilli’s antimicrobial lighting has the power to clean and keep your space fresh, while also shining with high-quality LED light.

How long does it take to experience the benefits of Brilli circadian lighting?

Think of Brilli’s circadian wellness lighting like a vitamin that supplements your sun exposure. Some benefits can be felt in just 20 minutes, like increased energy, focus, and relaxation. To balance your circadian rhythm, you'll need to use the light for a few weeks at the correct time of day to sync your sleep-wake cycles.

How long does it take to experience the benefits of Brilli antimicrobial lighting?

Bright Clean can kill* or reduce viruses, bacteria, fungi, mold, mildew in as little as 6 hours and as much as 24 hours. Different microorganisms are impacted by Bright Clean’s 405 nanometer LEDs at different rates.

Who invented Brilli?

Brilli was founded by inventor John Goscha who set out to create a holistic approach to wellness lighting. He recognized that lighting companies had largely ignored the negative impacts of artificial light on healthy living and visual comfort.

Where is Brilli headquartered?

Brilli’s headquarters are in Boston, Massachusetts, a city known as a hub of innovation, science, and technology.

What was the inspiration for Brilli?

We spend up to 90% of our time indoors, and much of this time is spent under artificial light. But what if our lighting could be used to do more; what if it could be used to improve health and wellness? This idea led Brillifounder John Goscha his team of experts in neuroscience and circadian health to invest in wellness lighting research and design, and to leverage the findings of more than 650 studies on the impact of light on human health and well-being.

Brilli Antimicrobial
How are Bright Clean lights different from UV wands and other UV-cleaning items?

Unlike UV light which is dangerous to humans, Brilli Bright Clean is approved for continuous and unlimited use around people, plants, and pets. Bright Clean fixtures shine at a wavelength of 405 nm, initiating a photo-reaction in microbes that kills* viruses, bacteria, mold, yeasts, and fungi.

Is Bright Clean safe?

BrilliBright Clean technology doesn't use ultraviolet (UV) light; so you can use it continuously around your family without worry.

How does Bright Clean work?

We partnered with Vyv, a market leader in antimicrobial LEDs, to create our Bright Clean line. Vyv’s patented antimicrobial technology produces light that shines at a wavelength of 405 nm, initiating a photo-reaction in microbes that kills* viruses, bacteria, mold, yeasts, and fungi.

Do I need a remote or special software to operate Bright Clean fixtures?

No,Bright Clean is incredibly easy to use. All you need is a standard light switch.Flip twice to turn on the cleaning power of Brilli Bright Clean, once to turn on the standard lighting mode. All Bright Clean fixtures are also compatible with any standard dimmer.

Does Bright Clean replace manual methods of cleaning?

Bright Clean lights are not intended to replace manual cleaning, but they do help extend the benefits of manual cleaning, and are a more sustainable,chemical-free way to keep your space clean.

Brilli Circadian
What is the Brilli WellBright Spectrum™?

Brilli’s WellBright Spectrum™ is our patent-pending blend of lighting wellness benefits, light quality, and energy efficiency.

DoesBrilli "replace" sunlight?

No artificial light can replace sunlight. Sunlight is healthy and we need it for things like Vitamin D. And the simple act of going outside just makes you a happier person. Think of Brilli more like a vitamin that supplements your sunlight exposure.

What is Circadian Rhythm?

Circadian rhythm or cycle is the 24-hour internal clock that runs in the background of our brains. Cued by sunrise and sunset, it tells us when to “wake up in the morning” or “relax at night.” It also helps regulate things like hormones.

What is Circadian Stimulus (CS)?

“CS”was developed by the Lighting Research Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as a metric to indicate how well one hour of exposure to a lightsource producing a certain level and wavelength of light stimulates the circadian system, based on its ability to suppress the hormone Melatonin.Exposure to a 0.3+ C/S is effective for Melatonin Suppression, which is ideal for day time use. Brilli’s Charge Up light collection is developed for optimum circadian stimulus and perfect for daytime use.

What is Serotonin?

Serotonin is an important chemical and neurotransmitter in the body. It is believed to help regulate mood and social behavior, appetite and digestion, sleep, memory,and sexual desire and function. As the precursor for melatonin, it helps regulate the body's sleep-wake cycles and the internal clock.

Why is the blue light in Brilli Charge Up light bulbs considered good?

We tuned our spectrum to specific blue light wavelengths in order to achieve the right benefits for day time -- like energy, focus and alertness.

*Testing on a non-enveloped virus (MS2 bacteriophage) showed a 99.985% reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 6 hours on hard surfaces. MRSA and E. coli showed 90%+ reduction in controlled laboratory testing in 24 hours on hard surfaces. Results may vary depending on the amount of light that is reaching the surfaces in the space where the product is installed and the length of time of exposure. Use of Bright Clean antimicrobial light is not intended to replace manual cleaning.
