Coloured Sunrise Simulation wakes you naturally
Inspired by nature's sunrise, light gradually increases within 30 minutes from soft morning red through orange until your room is filled with bright yellow light. This process of changing an increasing light stimulates your body to wake up naturally. By the time light has filled the room your chosen natural sound completes the wake-up experience, leaving you ready for the day ahead.
A soft light to guide you in the dark
The midnight light function of the Wake-up Light is designed to provide just enough light to find your way in the dark. While regular bedside lights use bright light, the midnight light uses a dim, subtle, orange light. This softer tone of light is ideal for minimising the disturbance of your night's sleep. Moreover, you can effortlessly activate the midnight light by tapping the top of the device twice. To deactivate this function, tap the top of the device twice again.
Choice of 7 different natural wake-up sounds
At your set wake-up time, natural sound will play to complete the wake-up experience and ensure you are awake. The selected sound gradually increases in volume to your selected level within a minute and a half. There are seven natural sounds you can choose from: bird song, birds in the forest, zen melody, gentle piano, cows from the Alps, morning birds and relaxing yoga music.
Display automatically dims itself when the bedroom gets dark
The brightness of the display adjusts itself. If the bedroom is filled with light, the brightness increases to keep the display readable. When the bedroom is dark the brightness dims so it doesn’t light up your bedroom when you are trying to sleep
Just tap the top of the product to snooze
A slight tap on top of the Wake-up light sets snooze mode. After 9 minutes, the sound will gently start playing again.
The only Wake-up Light clinically proven to work
At this moment in time the Philips wake-up light is the only one scientifically proven to work. In order to make the Wake-up Light the best possible product it can be in genuinely waking you up naturally and energised we have done a lot of clinical research. This research was conducted by independent science facilities to study and prove the effects of the wake-up light on the overall wake-up experience. This way we have proven, among other things, that the Philips Wake-up Light not only wakes you more naturally, but also more energised and that it improves your mood in the morning.

Dimming light and sound gently send you off to sleep
Sunset simulation is a light therapy used before you go to sleep. Sunset simulation prepares your body to fall asleep by gradually decreasing light (and nature sounds or FM radio) to your set duration.
92% of users agree that it is easier to get out of bed
Independent research* shows that 92% of Philips Wake-up light users find it is easier to get out of bed (Metrixlab 2011, N=209)
20 brightness settings to fit your personal preference
Sensitivity to light differs from person to person. In general, when using a higher light intensity a person needs less time to become fully awake. The 20 light intensities of the Wake-up light can be personalised and even be set to up to 300 lux.
