Darwin home wellness system

Home automation can now improve your family’s health, with the launch of technology which controls environments


Living a well life depends on getting the fundamentals in place, such as clean air and water and healthy sleep.

In response to this need, wellness innovator Delos has launched the Darwin Home Wellness Intelligence Platform – a digital home management system.

Indoor living
We spend more than 90 per cent of our time indoors, but indoor air quality can be up to five times worse than outdoors and even with advanced water treatment, it can be a challenge to ensure our drinking water is free from contaminants.

Darwin adjusts ventilation and helps remove allergens and pollution from the air, while a three-stage filtration system helps clean the water going to every tap and showerhead.

Indoor living can be responsible for disrupting our natural circadian rhythm – the 24-hour biological process that dictates our sleep-wake cycle and underpins our health.

The system controls circadian lighting within the home, in a way which is designed to mimic the properties of natural light.

This minimises environmental disturbances and helps improve quality of sleep, energy levels and mental health.

Darwin is ‘always on’, calibrating the environment in the home, utilising specially-designed sensors to respond to changing conditions and adjust systems accordingly.

For all price points
The system can be purchased at a range of different price points through HTSA Network-accredited dealers in the US. It will also be at the Consumer Electronics Show this year in partnership with KB Homes.

Darwin has been installed by KB Home in the US and Simonds Homes and Lateral Estate in Australia, as well as in luxury residences at 1371 Summitridge Drive and 521 North Cannon Drive in Beverly Hills, US.

About Delos

Delos is the creator of the Wellness Real Estate concept and has fostered research collaborations to create wellness standards, programmes and solutions for the built environment.

For example, Delos and the Mayo Clinic collaborated to form the Well Living Lab, the world’s first research centre which is committed to investigating the real-world impacts of indoor environments on human health and performance.

The driving force behind the establishment of the International Well Building Institute and its Well Building Standard, Delos has also been responsible for the adoption of wellness real estate programmes across the commercial real estate market, with nearly 1,000 projects already delivered in 35 countries.

The launch of the Darwin Home Wellness Intelligence platform marks the company’s first expansion into the residential smart-home market.

The Aussies adopt Darwin

Delos is working with Simonds Homes in Australia to integrate the Darwin Home Wellness Intelligence platform into its building construction process.

The collaboration makes Simonds the first volume house builder in the world to incorporate the system into its homes.

The first-tier Darwin option will be included as part of Simonds’ package in new-build homes in the Victoria market, with paid upgrades available.

Simonds is also organising a series of wellness activities in its display homes, with sessions available on healthy eating, exercise and sport and family connections.

CEO Kelvin Ryan says: “Our design philosophy focuses on delivering spaces that encourage healthy living, from everyday activities to sharing memorable celebrations that contribute to wellbeing.”

Simonds is a Global Wellness Institute Ambassador.

• Australian house builder Lateral Estate has also announced Darwin will go into its Parc Blakehurst apartment development in Sydney.
