Want to wake up more relaxed, in a better mood? I suggest you try this Alarm Clock.

"Personal Sunrise" is a dawn simulator for Android devices. It helps to wake up more easily in the morning, as your body prepares for wakeup due to the increasing light of the display. No more waking up from deep sleep phases.

You can try the app for longer than 2 hours - I will re-fund you without hesitation if you it does not fulfill your needs. You need to have several days to find out. If it does not satisfy you, please drop me a note with your order ID and - may I kindly ask - the reason so that I have a chance to improve the app.

Enhanced features include support of:

the Hue Personal Lighting System from Philips

the FHEM home automation (allows commanding the coffee machine, roller blinds, ...)

Wikipedia says "Dawn simulation is a technique originally developed to help treat seasonal affective disorder, but can be used as a soundless alarm clock to wake up the body naturally. Typically, the treatment involves timing lights in the bedroom to come on gradually, over a period of 30 minutes to 2 hours, before awakening.". WakeLight offers you several configuration options for the light simulation (sequence length, brightness curve, min/max brightness) and the sound (alarm sound, snooze timing and sound) in combination with the comfort of periodic alarm templates (with single-alarm removal), and of course single-alarm times. See the pictures. This app is very handy when you're travelling: take your dawn simulation with you!

It was intended to be used with tablets of at least 7 inches, but I have enough positive feedback of users with even smaller devices to be able to state it can be good to try with such a small device (especially, of course, if you want to use Hue lights). It depends on your light sensitivity, of course, and the brightness of your environment - but you will be astonished as it works subconscious. Just try, I think you will not regret it.

Anyway, using HUE or FHEM the size of the device does not matter any more at all!These systems will handle the simulation.
