led lighting

So, I understand that with florescent lights we would first turn on the actinics then the whites to simulate sunrise and sunset. With dimmable leds would it not be possible just to ramp them up all at once since they can go from 0 to 100%? Slowly of course like a natural sunrise or sunset.

I can be done. In fact some of the higher end led lights do simulate sunrise, sunset and cloudy days. IMO the more bells and whistles gives more chances something may fail. With my luck a $0.10 component would fail causing the whole system to stop working.
Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
