It's time to care for the environment. Made from a sustainable bamboo top and hazard-controlled components, this stylish Philips AJ3570/12 clock comes with low standby power consumption and an automatic light sensor - saving energy every second.
See all benefits
Under the European Commission's Ecodesign Directive 2005/32/EC, all Energy-using Products imported into Europe will have to be compliant with energy consumption standards by 2013. This clock radio is designed to comply with this directive for increased energy efficiency and overall lower power consumption, and achieve a standby consumption of under 1 W. You will have smaller electric bills and play a part in caring for the environment.
Auto-dimming light sensor for a comfortable viewing experience
Always be assured of being able to read the display, whatever time of day it is. The built-in light sensor reads the intensity of ambient light and then determines how bright the display needs to be to ensure clarity. During the day, or under strong lighting, the brightness automatically increases so you can see the display easily against the surrounding flood of light. At night, or under very low light conditions, the display softens, allowing you to look at the display without discomfort, and letting you sleep without being disturbed by glare.
Digital tuning with preset stations for extra convenience
Simply tune into the station that you want to preset, then press and hold the preset button to memorise the frequency. With preset radio stations that can be stored, you can quickly access your favourite radio station without having to manually tune the frequencies each time.
Dual alarm to wake you and your partner at different times
The Philips audio system comes with two alarm times. Set one alarm time to wake you up and the other time to wake up your partner.
Gentle wake for a pleasant waking experience
Start your day the right way by waking up gently to a gradually increasing alarm volume. Normal alarm sounds with a pre-set volume are either too low to wake you up or are so uncomfortably loud that you are rudely jolted awake. Choose to wake up to your favourite music, radio station or buzzer alarm. Gentle wake's alarm volume gradually increases from subtly low to reasonably high in order to gently rouse you.
Sleep timer helps you to drop off to your favourite music
Sleep timer lets you decide how long you want to listen to music, or a radio station of your choice, before falling asleep. Simply set a time limit (up to 2 hours) and choose a CD or radio station to listen to while you drift off to sleep. The set will continue to play for the selected duration and then automatically switch to a power-efficient, silent standby mode. Sleep Timer lets you fall asleep to your favourite CD or radio DJ without counting sheep or worrying about wasting power.
Wake up to your favourite radio tune or a buzzer
Wake up to sounds from your favourite radio station or a buzzer. Simply set the alarm on your Philips Clock radio to wake you with the radio station you last listened to or choose to wake up with a buzzer sound. When the wake up time is reached, your Philips Clock radio will automatically turn on that radio station or trigger the buzzer to sound.
Sustainable and renewable bamboo is used in the top plate
Finding ways to care for the environment involves creative and savvy thinking. Using bamboo in the clock's top plate is an eco-friendly step that also adds style to the product. Not only is bamboo an attractive material, it is also known to be more sustainable and renewable than trees. Growing quickly without fertilisers or pesticides, a bamboo plant can be harvested in three to five years, and each plant harvested multiple times. In addition, the preparation of bamboo for use in industry results in fewer pollutants and lower carbon dioxide emissions.
Recycled plastic housing and paper packaging materials
Taking a stand to be environmentally responsible, Philips has always made serious efforts to recycle. The benefits of recycling are staggering. It reduces the need for fresh non-renewable resources and takes away the strain from our already waning planet. It lowers the need for incinerations and landfills, which have very harmful effects on ecosystems and the environment. This clock is made from a high percentage of recycled materials. The entire casing is made of 100% recycled plastic, the paper printings are 100% from recycled paper and the packaging is produced with 90% content from recycled materials.
Hazardous controlled components for safer and greener living
Restricting the use of hazardous components marks Philips desire to create a safer living environment for the human race. On top of being fully compliant with RoHS directive, which restricts the use of commonly used dangerous chemicals like lead, cadmium and mercury. We have also further restricted the use of other hazardous components, for instance, PVC and BFR compounds are free from any plastic parts, circuit board, power adaptors and packaging, thus, minimising the impact on humans and our environment during use and disposal.
Plug and set the time automatically
Take the clock out of its box, plug it in and the time is already set for you - automatically. The intelligent clock reads pre-programmed data and sets the correct time according to the default time zone. If you are living outside the default time zone, all you have to do is press the Time zone button and the clock will reset the time. No more reading manuals, no more fiddling with buttons.
Time and alarm backup to wake up on time even with power cut
When there is a power failure, this intelligent clock will still maintain its reliable time and your settings. The scheduled alarm remains active even when its display is off - all thanks to a pre-installed battery. When the power comes back on, there is no need to adjust the clock or reinstate settings. More amazingly, even if power supply is not restored, the battery provides enough energy for the buzzer to go off at the alarm time you have set - making sure you never wake up late.
