Simulates Dawn to Wake You Gradually

The official light therapy product of the National Sleep Foundation, the Wake-Up Light wakes you up by simulating sunrise. Light gradually increases for 30 minutes before your alarm time to gently prepare your body to wake up and feel more energetic at the start of your day.

When you turn off the alarm using the lever, the lamp stays on to give you the opportunity to get out of bed without switching on another lamp.

Philips Wake-Up Light feature
Choice of Four Natural Sounds or Radio

At your set wake-up time, you'll start to hear a natural sound or your selected FM radio station. These sounds start out quietly and take 90 seconds to reach your selected full volume level. There are four sounds you can choose from: morning birds, a beep sound, and wind chimes. A snooze button feature lets you enjoy nine more minutes of sleep before the sounds start again. For further convenience, the Wake-up Light Plus features two alarms, ideal for weekday/weekend settings.

Choose Your Light Level for Natural Awakening

Because different people have different light sensitivities, the Wake-Up Light lets you select the light intensity that best suits your personal preferences. The intensity level can be set up to 250 lux. Higher settings typically correspond with shorter wake-up times, while lower settings may result in a more gradual wake-up process.

USB Connection Allows you to Wake up to Your Favorite Tunes

The Wake-Up Light Plus has a USB connection for easy mp3 or smartphone hook-up. Let your favorite tunes help start your day on the right note.

Smart snooze - Tap Anywhere to Snooze

You can put the Wake-up Light into snooze mode by simply tapping anywhere on the product. After 9 minutes the sound will gently start playing again.

Fall Asleep with Diminishing Light and Sound

The Wake-Up Light can also help you wind down and drift off to sleep at bedtime. The dusk simulation feature works by gradually dimming the light and lowering the sound to help you drift to sleep.

Bedside Lamp with 20 Light Settings

The Wake-Up Light can be used as a bedside lamp for reading. The 20 different brightness settings allow you to choose a light intensity that's best for you. It has an easy-to-read digital display. Menu, select, and volume buttons are conveniently located underneath the time display.

Backed by Clinical Research

Independent research shows that 8 out of 10 Wake-Up Light users reported that the device made it easier to get out of bed. Additionally, 88 percent of users say the Wake-Up Light is better than their previous way of waking up. It has also been clinically proven that light wakes you up more pleasantly and improves the quality of waking up.

Recommended by National Sleep Foundation

The Wake-Up Light is recommended by the National Sleep Foundation, an educational and scientific nonprofit organization dedicated to improving sleep health and safety.

The Wake-Up Light Plus is also completely safe to use on a daily basis and 100 percent UV free.

Product and Warranty Information

The light measures 9-9/10 inches high by 6-7/10 inches in diameter. It makes use of a replaceable 100-watt, 12-volt halogen lamp.

The Wake-Up Light Plus is backed by a limited one year warranty.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By anjali on Dec 1 2011
I am a permanent night-shift worker, one week on, one week off, so in the winter I don't see the sun too much. I have a 10,000 lux daylight lamp that helps with the light exposure issue, but using that for a wake-up was too drastic, the moment it switched on I was jolted wide awake, not at all nice.

The Philips Wake-up light comes on at a very low light setting & gradually brightens, then the audio (if selected) starts. I find that I wake up after about fifteen minutes (which is 15 minutes before the alarm time) and I don't feel hurried. By the time the audio starts, I'm ready to get up.

The Dusk simulation is also useful- trying to go to sleep in the morning with the sun shining outside can be a little tricky, and the lamp's gradual dimming does help.

My cat was quite intrigued by the nature sounds to start with, but now he's figured out that the birds are just a sound, and ignores them, but it was amusing to watch him tracking them down!

It is incredible. At first we read the reviews with a great deal of skepticism. Having a newborn meant that our sleep has become more precious than ever - especially in determining how our moods would be. Well, let me tell you - we soothingly fall asleep (thanks to the dusk simulator) and we awake refreshed and relaxed. The light it throws is very different - simulates the sun. The actual alarm sounds are amazing...like waking up in the forest or at a retreat somewhere. We can't say enough good things about this product. The price is steep but worth every penny!

I got this because I am a horrible waker-upper in the morning, and I also have a hard time when the days start getting shorter. Mornings were becoming pretty wretched.

I balked at the price for certain - spending this much on an alarm clock is not something I usually do. However, I do not regret my purchase. The simulated sunset is wonderful. The radio has excellent reception (I live where there is generally poor reception, so that I get CBC with relative clarity is a small miracle). The wake up is smooth - I'm usually awake now before the radio even comes on. And when the radio comes on it fades in gradually, so no jarring sound.

Couple things I would like - the sunrise effect only goes as bright as the brightness that you last had the lamp at. So if I set it to 6 before I put it on sunset, then it will only go as bright as 6 on sunrise. Would be nice to be able to tweak that more. Also, a longer sunrise might be nice - but not a necessity.

Overall, I am happy with the product, and it has become a regular part of my morning routine that I would rather not do without.

La lampe est très bien pour aider à se réveiller. C'est surprenant comme on est moins porté à se rendormir quand il y a beaucoup de lumière dans la pièce. Seul bémol: la radio. Pas terrible comme sonorité. Pour les bruits d'ambiance fourni ça va mais pas très agréable pour écouter les nouvelles le matin.

I bought this light about a year ago, and have used it daily in the ensuing time. My synopsis is that it's not bad, but should be much better for the price. I honestly doubt the origin of some of the glowing reviews on this site.

The good:
The light wake up feature is superb. Makes getting up 10 times easier for a habitual late sleeper like me. The little stick that controls the dual alarms is also great.

The bad:
- Volume Control is insufficiently fine grained making USB playback useless for me. I like to listen to music before I go to sleep, and the minimum volume (1 on a scale of 20) is too loud. The radio is capable of lower volume, as demonstrated by the low/increasing volume in the morning, just poor design on the volume control makes it impossible to select.

- Changing the light level when used as a bedside light changes the "wake to light" setting. These two shouldn't be tied together.

- No battery back up. Seriously, in a $150 light? This wouldn't be so bad except for...

- User controls are much too complicated. I've had to go back to the manual a number of times for simple things like time and alarm adjustment. Press the wrong button and it backs you out or changes something you didn't intend to change. Very frustrating. I'm a Computer Engineer, it shouldn't and doesn't need to be this complicated. Signs of too much "Apple"itis on this clock. I note that newer versions have more buttons, which is a good thing.

- Corollary to the complicated controls: I find the controls so complicated to use that I've never bothered to use the sunset mode, or some of the other features.

- The sound is poor for a $150 device. Very muddy, not much in the mid to upper ranges.

I am not, have never been, and will never be, a good morning person. I get up because I have to, and it's not a particularly graceful process. I have to admit, though, this wake-up light has made things easier. Rather than being jolted awake by the screeching of an alarm, I wake up gently and without the need to slam the snooze button. That alone, for me, is worth the price of admission.

The controls on the light are fairly intuitive and easy to use. There are two different time switches, allowing the light to store two different wake-up time settings at any given time. Set the wake-up time, and the light will dim on to the brightness level you selected over an adjustable 20 to 30 minute period. Then once the scheduled time is reached, the light also plays the sound you selected to ensure you get the message. All said, it works.

Highly recommended, although if I were doing it again I'd save some dollars by selecting the basic model (because I don't use it for sound, much, and I've never adjusted the length of time the light takes to fade on).

Best regards,
Ryan
