Delos Launches Residential Wellness Technology Platform

Delos, the pioneer of wellness real estate and founder of the WELL Building Standard, announced today the launch of the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform — a groundbreaking offering designed to enhance health outcomes in the home and mitigate harmful indoor environmental concerns, utilizing Delos’ proprietary wellness algorithms and sensor technologies, to create spaces that help reduce stress, improve sleep quality, increase performance and enhance overall well-being.

“Despite most of human history spent outside, we now spend nearly 90 percent of our time indoors, and yet rarely focus on the impact the indoor environment can have on our health and well-being. Through extensive scientific research and real-world testing, we discovered that we can mitigate environmental triggers within our homes to enhance both physical and emotional well-being,” said Paul Scialla, CEO and Founder, Delos. “Delos’ DARWIN platform incorporates health and wellness features and technologies into the home to bring the benefits of natural outdoor conditions inside. We are excited to work with our global partners to introduce a new era of wellness technology into homes.”

Backed by over seven years of research, the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform is designed to focus on four main components: air filtration, water purification, circadian lighting and comfort-focused technologies, all of which simulate the natural outdoor condition. Powered by Delos’ proprietary cloud-based algorithms, the dynamic platform interacts with an ecosystem of Delos approved products and solutions to bring wellness intelligence into the connected home environment. DARWIN is flexible and accessible, launching across all segments of the housing market, from mass market to luxury.

“For years, the value proposition of smart technology in the home has been elusive for the masses,” said Jim Hunter, CTO, Delos. “These technologies have primarily focused on security, energy, convenience and entertainment. However, it is the health and well-being of the ones we love that is most valuable. Born out of extensive research, DARWIN is the delivery platform for our wellness algorithms that helps improve the environmental conditions where we live, work, sleep and play.”

Delos has fostered leading research collaborations with the Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, a board of doctors from the Columbia University Medical Center and architects, scientists and wellness thought leaders to introduce wellness standards, programs and solutions into the built environment. Delos established the Well Living Lab in collaboration with Mayo Clinic — the world’s first lab committed to researching the real-world impacts of the indoor environment on human health and performance. Delos’ wellness technologies and solutions, along with the International WELL Building Institute’s WELL Building Standard, have seen broad adoption of wellness real estate programs across the commercial real estate market, with nearly 1,000 projects in 35 countries. Building upon the substantial success in the commercial sector, the launch of the DARWIN Home Wellness Intelligence platform marks the first expansion of Delos’ offerings to the residential smart-home market.
