Since time began, humans have learned to respond to the rising dawn by slowly waking up. Today, however, we tend to startle ourselves awake with an abrupt alarm call that can leave us feeling weary and irritable all day. Fortunately, with these ingenious gradual natural sunrise alarm clocks, we can return to the natural way to wake.
Wake up naturally with Philips Wake-up light
The Philips Wake-up light wakes you up in a natural way, with light that increases gradually simulating the sunrise. From now on waking up will be a pleasant experience.
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 unique health benefits light offers.
How does the Philips Wake-up light work?
Starting half an hour before your set wake up time, the Wake-up light gradually fills your room with bright light like a rising sun emitting natural light. The light gently prepares your body for waking up while you are still asleep. So, if the wake up time is set at 7 am, the light will gradually get stronger starting at 6:30. At 7 am the light has reached its highest level, which you can adjust to your personal preference. Choose up to 20 different brightness settings that allow you to use it as a bed lamp as well. At the set wake up time, your body is ready to wake up and natural sounds will gradually accompany the light. You will wake up feeling fresh.
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 250 lux.
Sunset simulation is used before you go to sleep. Sunset simulation prepares your body to fall asleep by gradually decreasing light and sound to your set duration.
Three natural sounds
At your set wake up time a natural sound will play to complete the wake up experience and ensure you are awake. The selected sound gradually increases in volume to your selected level within one and a half minute. There are three natural sounds you can choose from, bird song, birds in the forest and Zen Garden sound. The Wake-up light will gradually accompany the light with sound when the highest set light intensity has been reached. You can choose to wake up with pleasant natural sounds or your favorite FM radio station.
