|Philips Wake-up Light - Start your day full of energy with the light that wakes you naturally. |
Now you can get rid of your noisy alarm and rise a new way: easily and energetically with simulated sunlight just the way nature intended, thanks to the new Wake-Up Light from Philips. The light gradually brightens to emulate natural sunrise, positively affecting energy hormones to wake you more naturally than and with as much energy as on a sunny morning.
|Up to 400 Lux for both natural awakening and easy reading |
The Wake-up Light (HF 3461) offers up to 400 Lux light intensity. It has been clinically proven that you need up to 250 Lux to affect energy hormones in such a way that you wake up full of energy. For easy reading, you need a light level of 300 to 400 Lux.
|How does it work? |
|A sound choice! |
1. Three natural sounds
There are three natural sounds you can choose from, morning birds in the forest, waves at the beach, or a frog and a duck in a small pond.
|2. Friendly beep |
At your set wake-up time, you will start hearing a natural sound or, if you prefer, a friendly beep. It starts out quietly and takes a minute and a half to reach the volume level you selected. The gradually increasing sound will make the wake-up process nice and gentle, ensuring you're never rudely awakened. When the sound reaches your selected volume level, getting out of bed is easy.
|3. Digital FM radio |
The built-in digital FM radio lets you wake up to your favourite songs or news station every day. Just select your favourite radio station, and at your set wake-up time it will start to play, at first gently, gradually increasing over ninety seconds to the volume level you selected.

Proven Health Benefits
The positive effects of dawn simulation on the body are supported by the Medical Device Directive, and the Philips Wake-up Light is certified as a medical device.
|Light positively affects energy hormones |
Research shows that light stimulates the senses, giving you more energy and helping you to feel less lethargic – that is why it is so much easier to rise during the summer months as opposed to the dark winter months. As the light falls on your eyes, a message is sent to your brain that positively affects the production of cortisol, the energy hormone. This means that at your required wake-up time your hormones are better balanced and you’ll feel more energetic right from the start of the day.
So, make that change today and choose light to wake-up naturally.

Great little unit.
My only gripe is that the radio tuning is fairly annoying - you can tune up and down through the spectrum, and use a seek function, but here in... Read more
