This makes sure you can wake up to the light intensity that suits your personal preference best.

How does it work?
Set your wake-up time and your preferred light intensity and volume setting before you go to sleep.
From half an hour before your set wake-up time, light gradually increases to the intensity you selected (300 Lux advised).
The light brightens at an optimum rate, following a special curve proven to be most effective.
The light falls on your eyes, sending your brain a message to increase the production of cortisol, the energy hormone.
This means that at the set alarm time your sleep and energy hormones are better balanced, and you'll feel more energetic right from the start of the day.
At your set wake-up the sound will come on very quietly, and will also increase gradually until it reaches the required volume.

Incandescent lamp

Anyone know if these are decent?

I am not sure if this one works the same but I have had one of these lamps for years. I suffer from SAD and this really helps. In the dark winter mornings when the alarm goes off it is lovely to open your eyes to a lit room. For what it's worth I wouldn't be without mine.

Brilliant 65quid for a light and a 'digital' FM radio. If I was stupid enough to pay that for this I would give it a good review to make myself feel better for buying it!

I brought a Micromark MM74721 off ebay for £50 pounds. Does 10,000 lux but best to find out their lumen levels.

I've got one, not this specific model but it is a philips (most likely an earlier version). Anyhow, yes, it's expensive for you what you get, certainly overpriced *but* it does work for me. I always have problems getting out of bed in winter, I just can't wake up "right" and if I use a "normal" alarm clock I quite often end up feeling like utter poo.

Anyhow, with this, it works, it wakes me up slowly enough that there is no shock leaving me feeling dazed and not with it, I become aware of the light turning on while still dozing which is much more gentle to getting me out of bed without feeling like death. I've got up at 6am using this and not felt bad in the slightest. Effectiveness will depend on the person, the sounds to wake up to are rubbish, I leave mine set to radio 4 also it cuts the sound in far too fast but usually i'm mostly awake then. The speaker is fairly rubbish quality and the buttons are not nice, feel a bit like a product designed in the 80's.

Anyhow, I wouldn't want to be without mine, but the quality of the product is fairly low (although I do have the earlier model but it doesn't seem that things have moved on very much) and the price is high but it *is* worth it for me. It's a shame really as a few improvements could be made that would make this product perfect (being able to play music of your own SD card for starters!).

It was ghastly dark this morning at nearly 8 here, very overcast dark and grey. Anyhow, for other posters, if you can't see a need or reason for this then don't bother commenting, you really don't understand.

I've had the Lumie version of this for years and they're outstanding - especially at this time of year.

I will never get a regular alarm clock again.
#15
I was looking into these a few weeks ago and ended up getting this product, was gonna test it today as it happens!!

Plus less than a tenner so if it doesn't work then no great loss!

Why waste your money?

Just have a 4 year old and a 2 year old instead, they're the best alarm clock you can get, very reliable though you can't always guarantee the time they'll wake you.

While this might help get you up in the morning (A SAD symptom is the inability to get up during the winter), it won't help with the other symptoms -you need a light that kicks out between 2,500 and 10,000 lumens for that.
#18
I bought one of these a few weeks back and sent it back to the shop after 2 weeks. The quality of this product is debatable, I don't know if it is the zen design but here are the issues I had.

1. The "wake-up" light would not come on. Well to be honest, some mornings it would and work, some mornings it wouldn't. No clues as to why it would randomly choose to work on some mornings rather than others. Sure the alarm always went off at the "set time" but no light.
2. The 4 sound effects are 15 second loops, seems very stingy taking the price of the product.
3. It's not a DAB radio.. It's an analogue radio with a digital display. :whistling:
4. The light cannot be changed, thus once it fails thats it, the whole product has to be binned or returned to phillips?. It seems very un-enviromentally friendly.
5. The sleep timer is a great feature but only selectable in 15mins chunks.

Things I did like about it.

1, When it worked it worked well .
2. It made an excellent bed-side light for reading, throwing out enough light to light the room.
3. It was brighter than my room light (due to the eco-friendly bulbs in my room light I guess).

Yes this is a deal/steal at the price but buyer beware I dont think the product is very reliable.

Now that IS cheaper!...would be very interested if this one actually works, as my wife suffers from SAD.

Whether this works will depend on the individual. I think I have conditioned myself to be utterly resistant to alarm clocks. I curretly have:

1) Ddual alarm clock (alarms set 15 mins apart).
2) Two alarms on my phone (alarms set 15 mins apart).
3) A light which comes on automatically (works similarly to one of these phillips things).
4) A coffee machine set to brew automatically in the morning.
5) The older model of this phillips wake up light (and radio).

I think I may have a problem :-D

Personally, I find that big thing in the sky called the sun does a perfectly fine job. Lets face it, it only stays dark in the mornings up to 7:45 for about a month of the year.

It amazes me that the human race manages to cope with the harshness of life. We are managing to get around natural selection and imagine what would have hapenned to you poor things who struggled to get out of bed in the winter, you would have been eaten by a sabre toothed tiger, oh dear.

How refreshing, someone who CAN see the wood amongst the trees! :-)

Why is there a discussion about SAD?
Of course SAD exists, just this is NOT a treatment for SAD.
suspended#30
i am sure this product helps some people,

but its seems a bit expensive for what it is, a light, radio and alarm.

personally i have my phone which goes off at the time i want, and then i think to myself i have to wake up or a get the sack.. which usually is more than a reason to wake me.
I then brush my teeth and wash my face, a few good stretches later i am ready to go. I am usually in a cheery mood so this is definately not a product for me.

Well, I have met very few, if any people who would cope with a Stone age existence for half a day let alone a lifetime, so if you think that's some sort of clever argument, it isn't.

What it is is just plain and simple "cripple bashing," which, being Disabled I see on a regular basis in one form or another.
The number of people who get a rush of joy at the thought of having a dig at someone less well, less able or less intelligent than someone else is truly the measure of the sickness society is plunging into.:-(

A good glug of Chlorine in the gene pool would have made MY life a lot better, but I wasn't that lucky, and I won't complain too much :whistling:

Just because you are LUCKY not to have this condition (no, I don't have it either, but that's an irrelevance) then let's hope you are lucky enough not to have Cancer or Arthritis or Blindness, even Deafness or any number of other conditions which also would not have been survivable, then and would have provided a Sabre-toothed tiger with a good and easily won meal, and progress Natural Selection that little bit.

Natural selection has been a big boon - fortunately it has favoured the brighter individuals in our species to rise to the top of a very different pile than was around back in the early days of the species, provide us with a very comfortable life to what we originally had; and those intelligent enough to realise should thank their lucky stars for that.

My satisfaction is simple but absolute. EVERYONE gets sick, ill, or disabled at the end of the day... or they die before that happens. Something for you to look forward to: Become a Sabre toothed tiger meal, or die young and be a meal for the scavengers!!

That's Natural Selection too.

Looks pretty pointless, but if you find it useful, good for you.

This is spooky cos I was researching wake up lights and SAD lights yesterday as I fancied getting a SAD light (haha yes I am SAD!!).

It may be worth doing some research if you are thinking of getting this to combat SAD. According to sad.org.uk dawn simulators are generally not powerful enough to combat SAD (however they may help with sleeping disorders). A true SAD light needs to emit around 10000 lux. Philips actually sell SAD specific lights so would recommend you wait for them to come down in price if you are specifically looking to combat SAD.

Otherwise good price for a dawn simulator product - am tempted but not sure I would make use of it!
#34
I don't know who wrote the description above, or what their qualifications are. I do know that it was copied and pasted from Amazon (not Comet), and the description is festooned with grammatical errors and spelling mistakes leading me to question the author’s credentials as an expert on hormones and light therapy.

A previous poster claimed to suffer S.A.D. and said that this device really helped them. This device isn't really going to help you if you're a genuine SAD sufferer. To treat SAD with light therapy you need between 2500 to 10,000 lux of FULL SPECTRUM light, not the puny 300 lux emitted by this standard incandescent bulb.

Granted, it might help you to get up in the winter mornings simply because it's less of a shock to your eyes if the light fades up gently before the alarm goes off.

I'm also sceptical about the reference to cortisol as "the energy hormone". Cortisol is actually known as the stress hormone. If you're looking for hormones to treat SAD you should consider melatonin supplements.

Another poster referred to this item as "snake oil" - I'm inclined to agree

If all you want is an alarm light, i.e. a light that comes on at a pre-set time so as to allow your body to adjust to the darkness in the room before your 'main' alarm goes off (I have turned off the annoying 'natural' wake up sounds on mine by cutting the speaker wire!) then it does a perfectly good job for much less money :thumbsup:

dumb question - but where do you enter the discount code? I never saw the option to put it in when I tried to do the Collect At Store.

I've got the past model of this and it seems to work really well. I'm not really a morning person and struggle to get out of bed. This thing wakes me up at 6am in summer and winter and I seem to wake up much happier and less grumpy than before. Price seems expensive but I seem to get my moneys worth out of it.

I sufffer SAD, but also suffer from a light disorder that wakes me up. I have to use blackout curtains in summer.
Wouldnt pay £65 though. I have one of those crappy light saver bulbs that takes about 5 mins to warm up. I turn it on when the alarm goes off. 5 mins later when the snooze goes off, its brightened up nicley.

Ha ha that's brilliant! Points for research:thumbsup:

I have had that tent for 4 years now and been out about 20 times or so in in. It remains brilliant and will be so for the next few years.

Check out the reviews although you will be hard pressed to get one for less than £699 now.
