Philips HF3500/60 Wake-Up Light by Philips

As a mom, wife, and business owner I find that sleep is one of the things I used to take for granted. I used to be the one that got everyone up and ready for the day, but I was finding it harder and harder to get up in the morning. Then we started oversleeping because my phones alarm and the “nature sounds” alarm clock I had just were not getting me up.

Then I went to the extreme “foghorn” style alarm clock. Oh, I got up alright and woe be unto those that got in my path for the next hour or so!

But now I have the Philips HF3500 and I find that the light starts me waking up and the beeping is just annoying enough to push me to get out of bed. I’m in a much better mood and my day gets off to a much better start.

I do have one small complaint: the rubberized “feet” that are supposed to stop the clock from sliding don’t actually seem to be rubberized. There is one bar of rubber across the bottom of the body, but the clock still tends to slide a bit. If you are an “aggressive snoozer” this might be a problem for you. But for me it just means that I have to actually get out of bed to turn the alarm off.

Overall: 4 Stars. Great natural way to wake up in the morning.

Inspired by the naturally brightening light of the sunrise, the Philips HF3500 Wake-up Light gradually increases in brightness over a 30-minute period before your wakeup time, growing more intense until your room is filled with bright yellow light. This process of changing and increasing light stimulates your body to wake up naturally and comfortably. By the time light has filled the room, a gentle beep completes the wakeup experience, leaving you ready for the day ahead. Scientifically proven to be a more effective way of waking up, the Wake-up Light also leaves you more energized and in a better mood upon awakening.

Bedside Light Wakes You Gradually
Because sensitivity to light differs for each person, the Philips HF3500 Wake-up Light has 10 different light intensities, so you can personalize the settings to your specific needs. The light can go up to 200 lux, for those who need the brightest light to wake up. This Wake-up Light is clinically proven to be effective, waking you more naturally and leaving you energized and in a better mood.

Gentle Sound Alarm Completes the Waking Process
At your set wakeup time, the Wake-up Light emits a gentle beep to complete the wakeup experience and ensure that you won’t accidentally sleep through the light. The sound gradually increases in volume over the following 90 seconds. The Philips HF3500 Wake-up Light even features a classic snooze function: just tap the top of the light to stop the alarm, and after nine minutes, the sound will start playing again. The anti-slip rubber feet ensure that the Wake-up Light stays in place.

Rating: ★★★★☆
