Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Philips HP3461 - Wakeup Light 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.
Philips HP3461 - Wakeup Light
Philips HF3461 - 400LUX 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?
  • Set your wake-up time and your preferred light intensity and volume setting before you go to sleep.
  • From half an hour before your set wake-up time, light gradually increases to the intensity you selected (250 Lux advised).
  • The light brightens at an optimum rate, following a special curve proven to be most effective.
  • The light falls on your eyes, sending your brain a message to increase the production of cortisol, the energy hormone.
  • This means that at the set alarm time your sleep and energy hormones are better balanced, and you'll feel more energetic right from the start of the day.
  • At your set wake-up the sound will come on very quietly, and will also increase gradually until it reaches the required volume.

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.
Philips RHF3461 - 3 NAtural SOunds
Philips Wakup Ligth - Friendly beep 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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Function over form 16 Feb 2008
    By Perry Duke VINE VOICE
    Verified Purchase
    If you're thinking about buying one this may help.

    First:

    If you haven't already tried wake-up lights, and find getting up to normal alarms is jarring, then I recommend these. They really do seem to help, in winter at least (though bear in mind winter doesn't last forever). This one does that job easily as well as the Lumis I've used, and is in some ways better, though worse in others.

    This review compares the Philips to other light alarms, not to other alarm clocks.

    Here is the review:

    The bad
    - It's quite big, and frankly a bit ugly.
    - User interface not the best - e.g. too many turns needed to adjust light & volume
    - No radio presets, so if you want to change, you use the search function
    - Radio OK for talk stations, but not audiophile quality.
    - My radio makes a nasty squelch noise when switching on (as it searches for the station?)
    . (n.b. not as bad as I'd feared if using to wake up, as it fades in,
    . so squelch not too intrusive on waking up)
    - Both the light and sound come on at the volume you left them at.
    . (so if you need 100w of light to read, but 60w to wake up, you'll need to adjust. Every night.)

    The good
    - It works. Wake up light fades up perfectly. It wakes me up gently.
    - Mine seems to be absolutely silent when radio etc not on
    - 100w light means it works as a bedside light, which others (e.g.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Glorified lamp but still very good 17 Oct 2007
    I bought this yesterday so have only woken up to it once. I did wake up very well though and wasn't drowsy at all.

    The dawn effect is very good and I wasnt aware of any sudden noises or lights when I woke up. Even the radio fades in so as not to jolt you awake.

    It is quite a plasticy product and doesnt feel very sturdy when you press the buttons. The radio sounds quite hollow but the beeping is very nice and gentle.

    It is set to take 30 mins to light up and you cant change it but thats the time I'd choose anyway. I like how the light fades out when you turn it on or off so theres no sudden changes. If you're using it to read at night you have to remember to turn the brightness back up for the morning.

    My main complaint is the price. For 100 I want something really well made, all singing, all dancing. This is basically a lamp with a dimmer switch and a timer and that really is what you get. They are cashing in on the fact that it's a 'medical device' (proclaimed at every opportunity)but not invested in the small things that make you feel like you've got a quality product. It feels a little flimsy and there arent many options to personalise. The snooze, lamp and radio buttons are on the top and it's quite tall so its a stretch to reach from lying down.

    Having said all that I like it. It wakes you gently and the highest setting is really very bright. The brightness is on a dial so you can get exactly the brightness you want. Its a really nice way to wake up and I expect it to be invaluable through the winter.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth 10 21 Jan 2009
    By MSmith
    I was really keen excited to receive lamp but after one week, returned it. The light is not bright enough to wake you up. So whilst you wake up with a light-on, I slept through it everymorning and still needed a second alarm clock. If you can sleep with a light on, they don't buy this. The bulb is just a regular bulb, the radio does make a weird crackling sound at first (as reported in other reviews), and the dials are quite flimsy.

    I really don't recommend this product.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Philips v Lumie 29 Oct 2008
    By Natasha
    I have had a Lumie bodyclock (100) for 6 years and my husband has been using it on his side of the bed for a couple of years and it wasn't effective in waking me up properly from a distance. I decided to buy another dawn simulator and wanted to try something new (also the special price of 66 was appealing!).
    I agree with Cazzy's review in that the buttons on the top of the light are hard to reach and you don't know what you are pressing (although you get to know the feel of them). I have found it to be more effective in waking me up than the Lumie as I am normally awake bfore the back up sound comes on, whereas, with the Lumie, I usually needed the back up beep. I also like the extra sounds on the Philips, particulary the birds and the pond noises! The waves make me need to use the bathroom!
    Since I have 2 brands of dawn simulator, I have noted the main differences between the Philips and the Lumie:

    1. Lumie can be set to come on 15,30,45,60 or 75 minutes before the alarm, the Philips is 30 mins and cannot be changed.

    2. The radio and other wakeup sounds on the Philips as opposed to the back up beeper on the Lumie

    3. You can set the brightness of the light (which will depend on whether you use a 75 or 100 watt bulb) and the level of the sound, whereas the Lumie cannot.

    4. Lumie has a frosted glass dome which is very sturdy, the Philips is more plastic and not as sturdy.

    5. You can dim the clock display on the Philips whereas the Lumie remains bright.

    6. You can adjust the sound level of the back up alarm on the Philips which you cannot do on the Lumie.

    7. The Lumie has a fade down option (the light goes down gradually as you fall asleep) whereas the Philips does not.

    I do like both dawn simulators, however, my preference would be the Philips as it is more effective in waking me up. Definitely a must for the winter.
