Simulates Dawn to Wake You Gradually

The official light therapy product of the National Sleep Foundation, the Wake-Up Light wakes you up by simulating sunrise. Light gradually increases for 30 minutes before your alarm time to gently prepare your body to wake up and feel more energetic at the start of your day.

When you turn off the alarm using the lever, the lamp stays on to give you the opportunity to get out of bed without switching on another lamp.

Philips Wake-Up Light feature
Choice of Three Natural Sounds or Radio

At your set wake-up time, you'll start to hear a natural sound or your selected FM radio station. These sounds start out quietly and take 90 seconds to reach your selected full volume level. There are three sounds you can choose from: morning birds, a beep sound, and wind chimes. A snooze button feature lets you enjoy nine more minutes of sleep before the sounds start again.

Choose Your Light Level for Natural Awakening

Because different people have different light sensitivities, the Wake-Up Light lets you select the light intensity that best suits your personal preferences. The intensity level can be set up to 250 lux. Higher settings typically correspond with shorter wake-up times, while lower settings may result in a more gradual wake-up process.

Fall Asleep with Diminishing Light and Sound

The Wake-Up Light can also help you wind down and drift off to sleep at bedtime. The dusk simulation feature works by gradually dimming the light and lowering the sound to help you drift to sleep.

Bedside Lamp with 20 Light Settings

The Wake-Up Light can be used as a bedside lamp for reading. The 20 different brightness settings allow you to choose a light intensity that's best for you. It has an easy-to-read digital display. Menu, select, and volume buttons are conveniently located underneath the time display.

Backed by Clinical Research

Independent research shows that 8 out of 10 Wake-Up Light users reported that the device made it easier to get out of bed. Additionally, 88 percent of users say the Wake-Up Light is better than their previous way of waking up. It has also been clinically proven that light wakes you up more pleasantly and improves the quality of waking up.

Recommended by National Sleep Foundation

The Wake-Up Light is recommended by the National Sleep Foundation, an educational and scientific nonprofit organization dedicated to improving sleep health and safety.

The Wake-Up Light is also completely safe to use on a daily basis and 100 percent UV free.

Product and Warranty Information

The light measures 9-9/10 inches high by 6-7/10 inches in diameter. It makes use of a replaceable 100-watt, 12-volt halogen lamp.

The Wake-Up Light is backed by a limited one year warranty.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This alarm clock/bedside lamp is truly wonderful. It is made well and has simple functions. The light in it creates this bright white light when turned on fully, or you can get softer, warmer glow by decreasing the power. I'm one of those sleepers who, if left alone, can sleep for 10 hours. It used to be that getting up early in the mornings was simply one of the worst parts of my day. However, this Philips light really makes getting up earlier So Much Easier because of it's bright light & 30-minute progression.

I've used these dawn-simulation alarms for 15 years. I've had a wide range of them, including BioBrite Sunrise Clock (two!), Verilux Lamp/Alarm clock (the worst), and an older Philip's model. The Philips is the brand I go to because of their quality, design and warranty. BioBrite and Verilux just couldn't compare.

This model offers a dusk simulation to help get you drowsy vs. that quicker shut off that leaves you blinking. I like that you can program how much time you prefer (15, 30, 45, 60 & 90 minutes).

Another great feature is the clock itself. I have a hard time sleeping in a room with any light. The Philips light gives you four options brightness, and their dim is seriously dim! Plus it's orange, which is the color that is the least bright in a dark room. They must have listened to the consumers when this feature was designed.

The one feature I *initally* didn't like about Philips' wake-up lights was the 30-minute light progression. I'd wished I'd been able to personalize it to, say, 15-minutes, or 5-minutes. However, after using this for a while, I understand that I wake up more easily (and energized) with that dawn progression's slowly building crescendo of bright light. Seriously, it works better at 30-minutes and I wake up so much easier.

This Hf3470 model has everything I need to wake-up in the morning. I used to have an alarm that sounds like R2D2 in the morning; it was cool, but I found myself hitting snooze 3-4 times before I actually got up. Plus the added darkness when I have to get up because I wake up before sunrise, I really did NOT want to get up.
This has been one of the most useful alarm clock I've ever had. I wake up with just the brightening light, even before the alarm goes off. And when the alarm finally goes off, it's birds chirping, so I'm not jolted awake. The bird chirps are very realistic. I was even confused this morning because there were real birds outside my window, and I thought I had forgotten to turn off my alarm! People complain about not being able to turn-off the light when they snooze. The light turning on in 9 minutes again would be too ajaring. If the point of this is to simulates a sunrise, you wouldn't be able to turn off the sun when you snooze.

PROs:
*Adjustable Brightness to wake-up to. I keep mine at 16 out of 20.
*Adjustable alarm volume so you can adjust to comfort.
*Easy on-off-snooze switch.
*Radio sounds are decent (but not enough to substitute for good sound system)

CONs:
*Price is steep--$90. I'd return immediately if you're unsure about the results.
*Only 3 sounds available for $90?? Bird chirps, Beeping, FM radio. Phillips, either let us add our own or put more on the clock!
Even the Hf3471 ($100) only comes with 1 extra sound--wind chimes (+dimmer function).
*It's pretty big, barely fits on my window ledge.
*No battery back-up.

TIPS
*Using this as a reading lamp will definitely shorten the life of the bulb.
*If you would like a dimmer function and more sounds, look at the Hf3471 and the HF3485

Ok, I'm really trying to give this product a chance. After seeing it on DR. Oz, I ordered mine from Amazon. I've been using this product 2 weeks already and I still have not been able to wake up earler. The simulated dawn light comes on as stated on the packaging 30 minutes before the alarm rings, but when the alarm rings, it makes me comfortable enough to sleep more, not get up. The choices of alarms, singing birds, bells and windchimes are wonderful. I've tried different sounds to wake up to but all that has happened thus far is the alarms become a backdrop or theme music in my dreams. I'm not an early riser, but I have to be up 5 am for work. The purpose of me purchasing this wake up light, was to help me wake up earlier to exercise before work. I'm not giving up yet! I really like the alarm and my husband loves it also. He states the alarm wakes him up, but he just continues to relax listening to the melodies while planning his work day. Hopefully one day this alarm will work for me as advertised. In addition, this product is really overpriced.

Wow! After just a week I am in love with this light. I have such a hard time waking up in the mornings (I take a sleeping pill so I can sleep, but feel so hungover even after 8 hours of sleep.) I always hit the snooze button so many times ~ at least for an hour ~ and have been known to call in late because I just can't get started in the morning.
However, with this light I have not even hit the snooze button! It gradually wakes me up ~ enough that I am laying in bed stretching and READY to get up even before the actual alarm goes off. People at work have been telling me how much 'happier' I seem in the mornings and that I don't look like I am half asleep.
With the array of meds that I am on, they combine to make for a really miserable morning, but that is no longer the case.

Programming the alarm was not that complicated ~ it comes with a quick start guide but just look at the pics, not that hard. The radio has a nice sound ~ I turn it up when I am getting dressed. Not a BOSE, but a good, crisp, clear sound. Even at higher volumes.

The light itself is a bit 'bulkier' than I thought it would be, but the shape does help keep it looking nicer. I think it's durability it just fine ~ it's sitting beside the bed, not too much wear and tear there. Light has a wide range of dim / bright, but I have mine to come on the brightest there is. It actully has me waiting, ready to get out of bed by the time is is fully on. The light on the clock itself can be adjusted ~ I turn it on the lowest setting, but it can be brighter if needed.

All in all, I wish I had taken my doctor's advice and bought this sooner!! It is expensive, but not if it changes your mornings ~ and for me, my whole day.
