An expensive, high end product for experienced user
Reviewed in Canada on October 10, 2019
I already owned a philips wake up lamp, so I already knew that it works for me really really well. Setting up was easy for me, but I already knew the system.
If it’s your first sleep lamp, you don’t need to go that expensive. All the models at 100$ will do the same job.
But, this model has some really extensives features like, advanced alarm program setting, measurement of temperature, humidity, sound level, etc of the room. You can control the light from your phone and link with Apple health you’re sleeping stats. There is advanced led color mixing inside for different sunset and sunrise shades.
Does it worth the price ? Probably not for most people, but for me yes. Those features are not found anywhere else. The quality of the led, dimming and light temperature (color) are the reason why it’s so expensive. Those are high end features but most people won’t see the difference with cheaper brand. I work in the entertainment lighting industry, so I really enjoy the color mixing and temperature and the dimming capacity.
Although, There is one big thing I don’t like vs my old Philips. It’s when you are using it as reading lamp, and turn on the sunset mode, the light is shutting completely down, then all the way up to the sunset mode. It should just go straight to the sunset mode without dimming the light all the way down. I hope it will be change with firmware update.
