Who we are
the branch of science dealing with LED luminaires and their application within horticulture.
The team at Scynce (sci-ence) has developed a new breed of indoor and greenhouse lighting that is challenging the status quo. Our focus is on better yields instead of only on power savings. With over two decades of automobile, marine, military, architectural and theatrical LED experience, we are excited to share with you the next generation of horticulture lighting solutions.
The Mojo Behind our Dojo
With the rapid & inevitable decriminalization of cannabis throughout North America, new grid-burdening cultivations are coming online every day. Regulators have already begun initiating and tightening efficiency standards, cementing the inevitable move to LED for commercial operations. This comes at a unique nexus where LED technology has come far enough along to directly compete with traditional “tried and true” lighting solutions…at least in terms of delivering proper light energy across the top surface of a grow canopy and producing similar results for flowering.
We believe the next evolution in LED grow lights will be the utilization of optical technologies. These optics will focus and extend light energy down through the entire growing area, promoting healthy growth from roots to canopy.
This breakthrough combined with tunable spectrums, energy savings and a reduction in heat abatement will finally bring about the forthcoming LED revolution in horticulture.
Scynce (sci-ence) has spent over 3 years under heavy R&D developing and securing patents around multiple optical (lens) solutions, smart power and wireless digital spectrum tunability. Officially launched to market in 2018 and led by a team who previously disrupted a related LED market segment, Scynce is uniquely positioned to become the commercial grow light leader over the next 5 years.
Steve Adams (CEO at Scynce) founded Rigid Industries LED.
Rigid disrupts the automotive market with optically focused LEDs.
First iteration of horticulture lights with optics are used for growing algae.
Rigid is sold to Truck Light, a division of Penske Automotive.
Horticulture R&D is moved to engineering firm Illum Technology.
Botanist Darin Carpenter contributes to design and patents are filed on optics, spectrum, tuning and controls.
Testing is conducted at 15 partner sites, the results are amazing!
Illum forms Scynce LED to focus specifically on horticulture.
Patents are issued and Scynce LED launches into the market.
Over 5,000 units have been sold and Scynce LED wins award for the “15 Most Promising AgTech Startups”
Scynce launches a new line of lights with an industry first Full Power Spectrum Tuning alongside the new Linear 70, a new greenhouse optical delivery system
A new web-based control architecture for the digital ecosystem of lights is debuted, allowing growers manipulate the quality and quantity of light from anywhere in the world.
