Indoor environments influence almost every aspect of our lives, from our moods and energy levels to our sleep quality and how productive we are throughout the day. DARWIN helps transform the home into a responsive wellness ecosystem, harnessing proprietary sensors and algorithms to monitor, calibrate and respond to changing environmental conditions across the home. Delos works with leading manufacturers to guide the development of best-in-class products, which then undergo scientific vetting by the Delos Labs team before being included in the DARWIN network. DARWIN integrates air purification that harnesses the home’s HVAC system; water filtration customized through on-site water testing, third party laboratory analysis and historical regional data; dynamic lighting that mirrors the pattern of natural sunlight to help regulate the circadian rhythm; and an enhanced sleep system that creates a transitional environment to promote restful sleep at night and a gentle awakening in the morning. DARWIN can be controlled from a smartphone app, stand-alone tablet, or integrate with various home automation systems, enabling customization of wellness experiences and individual device control. The DARWIN App also displays key metrics to track wellness conditions across the home; indoor and outdoor air quality data; and notifications to replace air and water filters.
Developed through years of evidence-based research, DARWIN is designed to enhance energy levels, sleep cycles and overall well-being by reducing indoor contaminants that negatively affect respiratory, cardiovascular, immune and cognitive health. Indoor air quality can be up to five times worse than outdoors, and even with advanced water treatment technologies, our drinking water travels through aged infrastructure and it is challenging to ensure that it is free from contaminants. DARWIN incorporates air quality monitoring and purification that adjusts ventilation to remove allergens and pollution, and includes a water filtration system that filters the water from every tap and showerhead. Indoor living also exposes us to artificial light and can be responsible for disrupting our natural circadian rhythm and can have a negative effect on our comfort, mood and alertness. DARWIN’s circadian lights mimic the properties of natural light to help improve quality of sleep, mood and energy and is specifically designed to manage environmental disturbances and provide a wellness sleep experience. A central DARWIN dashboard provides homeowners with key metrics to track wellness conditions across the home, along with real-time data on outdoor air pollution, and enables homeowners to customize their preferences.
