Imagine waking up easily and naturally, without having to be jolted awake with the noise of an alarm clock. Philips Wake-up Lights are designed to do just that! Philips Wake-up Light is ideal for anyone who finds it difficult to get up in the morning, especially in the dark winter months. Its gradual sunrise starts from red, through orange to yellow, and eases you awake, gently and naturally, just like a summer's dawn. Just in case, there's a choice of 5 natural sounds and a built in FM radio, that can switch on at the end of the sunrise to gently complete your wake up routine. As an added feature, there's a Sunset mode too, to help you drift off to sleep naturally. Wake-up feeling fresh and energetic - just as nature intended.
Most people feel more energetic and fit during the bright and sunny summer season when they’re outdoors enjoying natural light. Both sunshine and daylight have a positive effect on us. When we are exposed to the right type of light, it helps to align our daily rhythm or wake up more easily. With this in mind, Philips has developed a complete range of light therapy products that boost your energy by using the unique health benefits of light.
Select the time you want to wake up, and let a gentle sunrise ease you into your day. 30 minutes before your chosen wake-up time, the light will come on, very gently at first, and getting gradually brighter and brighter. By the time the 30 minutes is up, you should be fully awake, gently and naturally. The light stimulates you into waking up, exactly as you would on a summer’s morning, feeling relaxed and fresh, without the need for a jarring alarm. You can adjust the brightness to a level that suits you. At the set wake up time, for extra reassurance, your chosen bird song or radio station can activate, to make sure you are awake. Wake-up feeling fresh - just as nature intended.
Inspired by nature's sunrise, light gradually increases starting at soft dawn reds through orange until your room is filled with bright yellow light. This process of increasing light intensity stimulates your body to wake up naturally. By the time light has filled the room your chosen natural sound completes the wake up experience, leaving you ready for the day ahead.
At the end of the sunrise simulation, at your set wake up time when the light is at its brightest, a peaceful sound will play to complete the wake up experience and ensure you are fully awake. The sound gradually increases in volume to your selected level within one and a half minutes. There are five natural sounds you can choose from: Birds in the forest, Zen Garden, Gentle piano, the Ocean and bird song sounds.
Built-in FM radio
As well as being able to select a nature sound, if you prefer you can let the built in FM radio wake you up with your favourite radio show.
Tap snooze function
Gently tap the Wake-up Light anywhere, and it will set the snooze mode automatically. After nine minutes the sound will gently start playing again. The snooze function will activate twice, just in case you go back to sleep.
Personalised light settings
The sensitivity to light differs per person. In general, when using a higher light intensity a person needs less time to become fully awake. The 20 light intensities of the Wake-up Light can be personalised and even be set up to 300 lux.
Sunset simulation - to help you go to sleep
The Sunset function can be used to help you fall naturally to sleep. Sunset simulation prepares your body to fall asleep by gradually decreasing light and sound to your set duration.
In addition to being a dawn simulator alarm clock, the Philips Wake-up Light can also be used as a bedside lamp, with a choice of 20 different light intensities.
Intuitive dimming display
The brightness of the display of Philips Wake-up Light HF3520 adjusts itself to suit the brightness of the room, if the bedroom is filled with light, the brightness increases to keep the display readable. If the bedroom is dark the brightness dims so it doesn’t light up your bedroom when you are trying to sleep.
