Rise and Shine! LED Lights Make Mornings Manageable

We all have a love hate relationship with our alarm clock. Love it because it wakes us up on time; hate it…for pretty much the same reason. What if you could take the groaning and slapping the snooze button completely out of your morning routine? What if you could wake up naturally at the right time every morning with no blaring noise or radio static? Well, now every morning can be a good morning due to the development of LED alarm clocks, a recent innovation in technology.

Researchers have been investigating the role that light plays in human sleeping and waking patterns. What they have found is that it is actually healthier for your body’s natural cycle to be gradually awakened by an increase in light over a 30 minute period. Since most people require a solid eight hours of sleep a night, having to start hitting the snooze button an hour to two hours early in order to wake up is not optimal for getting you the sleep you need. In fact, being jolted awake repeatedly by loud disruptive sounds can increase morning grogginess and general irritability. The LED alarm clock avoids this problem entirely and has been shown to increase calmness and help keep people alert throughout the day.

This special LED alarm clock, gradually increases light over a 30 minute period and then emits a soft beeping noise to gently wake users. It was designed to simulate a small sunrise with LEDs that emit full spectrum light. Most of the LED alarm clocks also have customizable dimming and brightening features so users can adjust the intensity of the glow to the range that is most comfortable for them.

With advances in LED technology like LED alarm clocks becoming more and more necessary, the need for highly effective and accurate LED testing and measuring systems has never been more vital. Konica Minolta provides a number of state-of-the art, innovative LED testing and development solutions to help make your LED development project successful.

The CL-500A Illuminance Spectrophotometer is recommended for precise light & display measurements.
