Great for these cold, dark winter mornings.

Philips Wake-up Light - Start your day full of energy with the light that wakes you naturally.

Now you can get rid of your noisy alarm and rise a new way: easily and energetically with simulated sunlight just the way nature intended, thanks to the new Wake-Up Light from Philips. The light gradually brightens to emulate natural sunrise, positively affecting energy hormones to wake you more naturally than and with as much energy as on a sunny morning.

Up to 400 Lux for both natural awakening and easy reading

The Wake-up Light (HF 3461) offers up to 400 Lux light intensity. It has been clinically proven that you need up to 250 Lux to affect energy hormones in such a way that you wake up full of energy. For easy reading, you need a light level of 300 to 400 Lux.

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 (250 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.

Has anyone used one of these? Do these really work? Would seem good for winter mornings if they do.

One of the reviews says they've stopped making the replacement bulbs , which gives it a bit of a finite life.

I'm out:p

I love our Lumie sunrise lamp, it makes waking up much easier. Our first one broke though at about 18 months old and before I realised it had a two year warranty I started looking for alternatives. This Philips came to my attention and I nearly bought one until I realised it lacks (afaict) one of the best features of the Lumie - the sunset feature. You set the alarm and the light dims down to nothing, I find this a huge help for getting off to sleep. Why they didn't include it beggars belief. Maybe it can do it but iirc I found a PDF of the instructions on a Philips site and there was no mention of it.

I have a Lumie too - and it's great. Used it for over a year and it's been worth every penny.

They apparently take a standard 100w ES inandescent bulb so even after such bulbs have been "banned" they shouldn't be too hard to source.

Good find!

I bought one of these for about £70 (ex display, but upopened) from eBay about 2 or 3 weeks ago.

It works surprisingly well. I definitely find it easier getting up in the morning, and I'd recommend it, especially at this price.

Do the bulbs break down on a regular basis?

Thats a hell of a lot for an alarm clock and bed side light

The idea is that it's way more than that...it simulates dawn, which is supposed to help you wake up more naturally and feel more alert by gradually lowering the amount of sleep hormones circulating in your body. Et cetera. Google can tell you more.

Well spotted, worth the extra pence to be able to pick it up

Oh, and I think you get a £5.00 gift voucher for spending over £50 at the moment at Argos.
