Light gradually increases over 30 minutes before your set wake up time. Light falls on your eyes and positively affects your energy hormones, preparing your body to wake up. This makes waking up a more pleasant feeling.
Wake-up Light is the only dawn simulator that makes use of an energy-saving lamp. It consumes up to 24% less energy compared to a Wake-up Light with a normal light bulb.
The sensitivity to light differs a lot per person. In general, when using a higher light intensity a person needs less time to become fully awake. The light intensity of the Wake-up Light can be set up to 300 Lux. This makes sure you can wake up to the light intensity that suits your personal preference best.
It has been clinically proven that light is a more pleasant way to wake up, and improves the quality of waking up.
At your set wake-up time, you will start hearing a natural sound or the selected radio station. It starts out quietly and takes a minute and a half to reach the volume level you selected. There are four sounds you can choose from: morning birds in the forest, cows from the alps, a cuckoo sound and relaxing yoga music. The gradually increasing sound will make the wake up process even more pleasant, ensuring you're never rudely awakened.
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.
The gradually decreasing light and sound help you to drift to sleep. You can set your preferred time for the duration of the dusk simulation.
Great sound quality thanks to the integrated sound box
The speaker in this Wake-up Light is backed up by an integrated sound box, assuring great sound quality when listing to the FM radio or when waking up with the natural wake-up sounds.
