As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized how much the changing sunlight of the season messes with my ability to wake up in the morning. The darker it is when my alarm goes off, the harder it is to feel like I should get out of bed. That’s where a wake-up light comes in.
The Philips Wake-Up Light gently eases you into your allotted alarm time (though, you’ll probably already be awake before the alarm even goes up, that's how bright it gets) with a light that gradually gets brighter about 30 minutes before you’ve set your alarm. It’s made to mimic the sun’s natural cycle and your body’s ability to ease out of REM sleep with the sunlight.
This model also has an added feature called PowerBackUp+. Even in the event of a power outage, like say in a snow storm, you'll be able to wake up when you need, even in the darkest days of winter.
