Wake up technology

More than 125 years of innovation to brighten up your life

    Sleek, streamlined and easy-to-use, there’s a lot of innovation under the smooth surfaces of our wake-up and energy lights

    the curve

    In the full spectrum of colours that our eyes can see, white isn’t just white. The curve of white across the spectrum ranges from cozy red to cool blue, as seen in natural sunrises, sunsets and daylight.  Our Sleep and Wake-up light mimics the millions of hues of light seen in nature to simulate the smooth changes in light intensity we experience at dawn and dusk.  Our Energy Light provides blue light therapy, simulating bright sunlight to help you stay energised.

    A million transitions
    The Philips Wake-Up Light is a dawn simulator
    Our Sleep & Wake-up Light is designed to turn on at a million times dimmer than its full intensity. Even in a completely dark room many people can’t tell that the light has come on. The dawn simulator increases in brightness graduations so small that it can hardly be noticed. You are woken slowly and gradually, without sudden increases of light.

    Personalise your morning

    Lux is used to measure the amount of light intensity in a given area, and a light emitting around 200 lux can usually wake someone up. Since everyone’s sensitivity to light is different, our wake-up lights offer multiple intensity levels so you can personalise your light therapy to the exact setting that will ensure you are fully awake.

    Blue light therapy

    Our eyes don’t need blue light to see, but exposure to it may have a direct impact on our hormones. The sun provides a lot of natural blue light which is why a bright sunny day can impact our mood. Our blue light therapy lights are engineered to maximise the positive benefits of the blue light energy emitted without increasing the intensity of bright light on your eyes.

    Focused intensity

    As light travels farther from its source the intensity is diffused and lessened. Our energy lights narrow the path of the blue light so that the light is more targeted in the area it covers, but delivers the same level of intensity. Its smooth surface evenly distributes and emits light from the LEDs inside for more energy efficiency and less intensity on your eyes.

    A century of experience and

    Since the introduction of the first Philips light bulb in 1892 we have been at the forefront of lighting technology. From infrared to halogen to LED to Xenon, we’re looking for the next improvement or innovation that can make a difference in people’s lives. Our wake-up and blue light therapy lights bring the spirit of innovation into your life for better sleeping, waking and energy levels. Read more
