Product Description

Philips Wake-up Light HF3500/01 with Sunrise Simulation

Insert Alt Text here

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 eases you awake, gently and naturally, just like a summer's dawn, and just in case, there's a back-up beeper. Wake-up feeling fresh and energetic - just as nature intended.

Wellbeing by light

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 health benefits of light.

How does the Philips Wake-up Light work?

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, a beep will sound at the end of the sunrise, to make sure you are awake. Wake-up feeling fresh - just as nature intended.

Highlights

Philips
Sunrise Simulation

Inspired by nature's sunrise, light gradually increases within 30 minutes from dim yellow 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.

Philips
Back-up Beeper

At the end of the sunrise simulation, when the light is at its brightest, a gentle beep will sound to complete the wake up experience and ensure you are awake. The sound gradually increases in volume within one and a half minutes.

Philips
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.

Philips
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 10 light intensities of the Wake-up Light can be personalised and even be set up to 200 lux.

Philips
Bedside light

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 10 different light intensities.

Philips
Scientifically proven

The Philips Wake-up Light is a dawn simulator alarm clock scientifically proven to work. As experts in light technology, Philips endeavour to create the most effective Wake-up Lights possible. To this aim, Philips commissioned independent science facilities to conduct clinical research to test the efficacy and benefits of dawn simulation. This research confirmed that the Philips Wake-up Light not only wakes you more naturally, but also increases energy and has a beneficial effect on your mood in the morning.

Philips
Developed by Philips

Philips has over 100 years’ experience in lighting, and to this day lighting is still at the heart of the company. Philips' goal is to bring innovative products that make a difference to people's lives. Philips Wake-up Light is proud to continue this heritage, building on years of knowledge and expertise from one of the world's foremost lighting companies.

Why choose a Philips Wake-up Light?

No replacement bulb needed.

The bulb in Philips Wake up light is an energy saving LED, that never needs to be replaced.

Cool to touch - safe for children

Normal halogen bulbs warm up lights very quickly - imagine trying to hit the snooze button on a hot lamp! The Philips Wake-up Light stays cool to the touch, so it’s much safer for you, and especially safe for children. With a Philips Wake-up Light, you just tap the unit anywhere to snooze - far simpler!

No assembly, simply plug and go

As the bulb is built in, there’s no worry about transit damage, and you don’t have to fiddle about installing it. Or changing it – ever.

Large, easy to read LED display

The numbers on the clock face are large, clear and easy to read, even on the dim setting. You choose the brightness of the numbers to suit, from dim to bright.

Pleasant, non-aggravating beep alarm.

Philips have listened to many alarms, so you don’t have to! And they like to think theirs is a gentle, yet effective beep. It gets gradually louder, to make sure you are awake. Although most users find the light wakes them up on its own.

Sleek, design

You spend a lot of time choosing your furnishings, so why compromise on your wake-up light? With its high quality finish, matt light diffuser, and tech white gloss body, this sleek, stylish and compact Wake-up Light will not look out of place in any setting.

The positive:
* The whole 'wake up with light' thing: much gentler than a 'sound' alarm clock and very effective for me (I'm a light sleeper).
* Lovely clean light colour, warmer than I expected from an LED
* LED lamp means low power consumption
* Clean, simple design
* Ability to dim the light and use it as a reading lamp without disturbing husband
* Change the light brightness without turning the light on
* Easy to set up using the quick start guide - I didn't have the problems that some people had with it.
* Simple to turn the alarm off - one button to turn it on/off, which also effectively stops the alarm in its tracks pre-beep if you don't want to wake up other people (husband).
* Simpler controls than the HF3505 (next model up), and the buttons don't light up (unlike the next model).

Advantages over the Lumie 250 (why I bought this instead):
* Sunrise only (I didn't want the Lumie's sunset, and you can't turn it off)
* You can turn the alarm and sunrise completely off, e.g. for in summer (you can't with the Lumie)
* Alarm does not need re-arming every day (unlike the Lumie)

Negative things I was prepared to live with:
* You can't turn the display completely off at night - I put a cardboard flap over the display because even on its darkest setting it's still pretty bright. (NB the Lumie 250 *does* let you have the display totally dark at night.)
* You can't choose to use either just the alarm noise or just the light to wake up by (partial workaround: turn the light brightness right down the night before, to turn the light nearly off).
* Short cable; about a metre
* No battery back-up, loses the time if the power goes off, starts flashing when the power comes back on.

Why can't you turn the flipping time display off.
I bought this to sleep better.... Not light up the room with a dim glow.
It illuminates the room with an orange light.
Who ever participated in the design of this requires a few words.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have used sunrise simulation clocks in the past and I found that they do work for me.
I don't find getting up on dark mornings especially difficult but as I've got older I do
believe that lack of sunlight makes me a little grumpier in the morning (yes! cry the
children).

Assuming one is interested in trying a dawn simulation clock, then this Philips entry-
level light is competitively priced (and there are a range of competitors; notably Lumie).

The idea (of course) it that our brains are programmed to wake us up when it gets light
and the Philips light simulates dawn by progressively getting brighter over a thirty-minute
period. For the device to work effectively it needs to be placed reasonably close to one's
face; if the light is placed at a different level (or on the other side of the room) its
effectiveness will be reduced.

This light works very well for me. It's easy to set and the colour of the light is fine; the
brightness is adjustable. I like the fact that it uses a low-energy LED light source that's
most unlikely to fail.

My previous sunrise lamp had a dusk feature (the light gradually dims over a thirty-minute
period) and it is a function that I would definitely choose if purchasing a new sunrise
simulation device. As mentioned earlier, the Philips light is easy to set up, but I would like
to see a battery backup for the alarm in case of a power cut.

The alarm sound is basic but effective, however, I do find that I'm awake before the buzzer
goes off (which is the whole idea really). The device is rather lightweight and it's easy to
knock over and slips around somewhat on a bedside cabinet (needs rubber feet, or sitting
on a rubber mat).

Nice looking product, but LED time display is too bright at light even when dimmed so is not suitable for us. Returned product. It makes no sense to design a product that helps with sleep by varying brightness, but then has not black-out option for no light at night! The display can be manually dimmed but not to a low enough level. It would be better if it could be turned off and only came on when one touches the light.

I have had several different versions of wake-up light over the years and I think this has to be one of the best. It is relatively small, very light in weight, simple to operate - two buttons on the sides, one for adjusting the clock and one for adjusting the display brightness and four buttons on the front - one for the light level, a plus button and a minus button and the alarm button. It doesn't have a conventional bulb - it is an LED and will apparently never need replacing which is big bonus.

My last wake up light had all sorts of extras which I found I never used so I decided it was time to opt for something simple and this is perfect for its purpose and can be used as a bed side light as well as a wake up light. I have always found that waking up to a gently increasing light much better for me than a shrill alarm with no warning. It means I wake up gradually and am ready to face the day by the time the alarm goes off. It is rare for me to not be awake before the back up buzzer sounds. If you're looking for a new bedside light or a new alarm clock then I recommend this one.
