Light gradually increases in 30 minutes before your set wake up time. Light falls on your eyes and increases the level of energy in your body, gently preparing your body to wake up. This makes waking up a more pleasant feeling.
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 250 lux. This makes sure you can wake up to the light intensity that suits your personal preference best.
At your set wake-up time, you will start hearing a natural sound or the selected radio station. It starts quietly and takes a minute and a half to reach the volume level you selected. There are three sounds you can choose from; morning birds, a beep sound and wind chimes. The gradually increasing sound will make the wake up process even more pleasant, ensuring you're never rudely awakened.
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.
