Philips HF3520 Wake Up Light Review.Sunrise Simulation Alarm Clock

Phillips has produced a range of four Dawn Simulator Alarm Clocks. The Phillips HF3520 represents the top of the range. As you would expect it comes with everything you are ever going to need from a Sunrise Simulator. In fact the only thing it doesn’t do is brew your coffee for you before you wake up.


Main Features

At your set wake-up time, natural sound will play to complete the wake-up experience and ensure you are awake. The selected sound gradually increases in volume to your selected level within one and a half minutes. There are five natural sounds you can choose from.

 It has twenty adjustable brightness settings. The sunrise colour sequence takes you from Red to Orange and then Yellow. You can adjust the sequence timer to suit yourself, between twenty and forty minutes.

At wake-up time, you can choose from five which natural sound will play to complete the wake-up experience.

  • Gentle Piano
  • Seaside Sounds
  • Bird Song
  • Zen Garden
  • Birds in the Forest

Our personal favourite is Bird Song.

The selected sound gradually increases in volume to your selected level within one and a half minutes.
If you don’t want these sounds then you have an FM radio option to automatically turn on at your wake up time.
As well as these great features, just tap the unit to activate your nine minute snooze function. At the end of your day it can also be used as a tabletop or a reading light.
Another great feature   of the Phillips HF3520 is the sunset simulation to help you get to sleep. We think this function is absolutely brilliant. It is really the reverse of sunrise simulation. What could be nicer than to drift of to nature’s sounds in a gradually darkening room.

The Phillips HF3520 is finished in Light Orange, Beige and White this elegant and sleek looking the alarm stands 19.2cm (7.5in) tall and 19.8cm (7 ¾”n) wide. The easy to understand function buttons are cleverly integrated into the alarm body surrounding the light face. The back of the unit houses the speakers for your FM radio and alarm sounds and the mains plug socket. It sits on nonslip rubber feet.

Ease of Use

As you would expect from Phillips the HF3520 wake up light has been artfully designed to enable an overall great user experience and that includes the manipulation of the device to set your desired early morning wake up regime. The “menu” system is easy to follow and although the function buttons are quite small they can be easily accessed and used. Click here to see your users manual
