Pros and cons

According to our alarm clock expert
  • You set the brightness of the display yourself, so the light is never too bright.
  • Thanks to the FM tuner, you can wake up with your favorite radio station.
  • Setting multiple alarm times isn't possible, so your partner will need an alarm clock of their own.
  • The simulation isn't as realistic as those of other alarm clocks, because this alarm clock only uses yellow light.

Description

With the Philips Wake-Up Light HF3506/05, you'll start your day more easily, fresher, and with more energy. Light and sound combine to wake you in a natural way. The lamp emits a bright, yellow light and can be adjusted according to your wishes using 10 pre-programmed light settings. When your alarm clock goes off, it takes about 30 minutes for your bedroom to be lit completely to 200 lux. You can also choose to wake up with the sound of the radio. Over one and a half minutes, you'll hear this sound slowly increasing in loudness to the selected level. Still can't quite get out of bed after the alarm goes off? Use the snooze button to repeat the sound every 9 minutes.

Takes some getting used to, but nice.

  • Wake up differently.
  • Can also be used as a night lamp.
  • 1 intensity for alarm clock and bedside lamp.

4. The Philips Wake-Up Light HF3506/05 is an alarm clock that you have to get used to. The traditional alarm clocks wake you up with (loud) sound, this alarm clock does not. You are awakened by simulating a sunrise. This can be supported by 3 sounds: nature sounds, an eagle owl or the radio. The light can be set in different levels to wake up. However, it is a long puzzle until you have found the right personal setting, after which it is relaxing to wake up. The radio gives a good clear sound, the low tones are unfortunately a bit absent. However, the device gives the illusion that there is a nice speaker hidden in the back for such a size piece, but it does not reproduce much low tones. The reception is good. Operation is very simple, the device is installed and ready to use in no time. There is a proximity sensor so that the Wake-Up Light display already lights up before you touch it. The background lighting of the touch keys dims automatically after 4 seconds. The intensity of the display can also be adjusted so that no annoying light comes out of the time display at night. During the day, the brightness of the screen is not adjusted, if you choose a setting that causes little light at night, the display can be difficult to read. There are no "buttons" on the front, it is 1 smooth surface with touch keys incorporated. In addition to the beautiful appearance, the alarm clock is easy to clean. The alarm clock can also be used as a night lamp. Touching the button for lamp turns on the light. There is a light on the display that indicates whether the lamp is on (This is not necessary because you can see that the lamp is on) This light is also located on the display directly above the touch button to turn on the lamp. My own experience is that I am often in the wrong place to get the pressures on the lamp off. Personally, I find this indication superfluous. Also, the level of the light of the alarm clock is equal to the level of the lamp function. If I want to read in bed at night, I have the lamp level set higher than the alarm clock level. You have to adjust this setting yourself every time so that you are not woken up with too high a light intensity (can cause a headache). If the power goes out, the alarm clock will not keep the time, it needs to be set again. The alarm clock does remember the settings of the radio and the alarm time. Nice to Have – DAB+ Radio – Light sensor for automatic brightness display.

Wake up in peace, wonderful!

  • Many possibilities
  • Much adjustable
  • cheap look

My old alarm clock had broken down, so it was time for a new alarm clock. Now with my previous alarm clock I regularly suffered from the unpleasant waking up due to the irritating buzzing sound. After some searching on the internet I came across the Philips wake up light. I thought the appearance of the wake up light looked a bit cheap, this is actually the only downside I can think of at the moment. After using the wake up light for a few weeks, I believe that this is a must for all people with an alarm clock. The alarm clock has 2 nature sounds built in to wake the user, in addition to this it is possible to play FM as an alarm sound. I mainly used the nature sounds because it is a peaceful wake up. About 15 minutes before the time you should be woken up, an LED lamp (brightness can be set in 10 levels) around the alarm clock will light up to wake you up in a soothing way. I noticed that 9 out of 10 times I woke up by the light which is much nicer waking up. You also have the feeling that you wake up much more energetic because you are not immediately awakened. I am quite satisfied with this product.

The best alarm clock I've had.

  • Wake up to bird sounds
  • The light will not turn off automatically when you take the alarm off

It's nice to wake up but it's a pity that I can't turn off both the light and the sound with 1 button

The wake up lamp works

  • Beautiful design
  • Pretty expensive for what it can in proportion

Gently wake up with soft sound and light. Nice little design

The dawn has (almost) gold in its mouth

  • Pleasant alarm clock sound (birds)
  • Volume adjustable, also very quiet!
  • "But" 2 sounds to choose from (unless radio)

I'm glad I finally invested in a light alarm clock. Of the lightworkers I found (online and physically in stores), I think this is the best: color light, design, price, alarm sound. You can set it completely to your own preferences and needs: lamp brightness, volume, brightness, clock numbers. The setup is also simple and intuitive. You can also turn your lamp on or off with one push, so that you can also use it as a light. You can also simply turn off your alarm clock if you prefer to sleep in on the weekend. The settings are simple, but also limited: no snooze button or separate alarm times per day (eg working week vs. weekend). But actually, the lack of those features promotes healthy sleeping habits, so I don't think it's a real disadvantage. In addition, your wake-up time is very easy to change. The times of loud tuut-tuut sounds where you startle hard and start your day with stress are over! The light alarm clock is the present, but also the future. I think eg. to a smart light alarm clock that you can set more extensively via an app. But there is still one big problem... I still have a hard time getting out of bed. The way of waking up may already be more pleasant and gentle, but the real waking up and getting up is still something you have to do all by yourself. So don't expect miracles if, like me, you like to postpone getting up.

Very nice alarm clock!

  • The fact that you can adjust the intensity of the wake-up light is very nice!
  • Nice service.
  • You cannot set multiple alarms at once

I find it a very pleasant way to wake up. I notice that by using this alarm clock I am much less grumpy in the morning, because I do not wake up startled. This alarm clock wakes me up very calmly.
