[Amazon.ca] Philips Wake-Up Light Alarm Clock with Colored Sunrise Simulation and Sunset Fading Night Light, White, HF3520/60

Hi guys,

First deal post, so please be gentle.

I've been hunting down one of these for the longest time, and it seems the top-tier model (3520) is finally on sale at Amazon Canada. According to 3xCamel, this is the lowest it has been at since Jan 2018.

Got my cheapo one from Amazon for $12 and it works great. I also have an HF3510 that my son uses but I think Philips wake-up lights are a big scam with their artificially limited features, like the number of alarm tones, etc. And for this much money, there really should be smart features or ability to setup with a phone. But I think those retail for about $300

Thanked you OP since this is a deal for those that really want one.

I tried to use the gentle wake up feature on my Lenovo smart clock. I just woke up to a bright white screen and my alarm. Lol

I also got the Chinese one. I think it's a bit smaller than Philips... But is Philips really worth paying 3x times more? I bought TITIROBA and I paid $35 CAD no tax

Which one? Looking for those things is a minefield. Also can you fully turn off the time display on the one you have, does it have a battery backup? Please give me the link or name of it.

I think it's insane that Phillips doesn't provide battery backup for the "lower tier"(tiers for clocks, WTF world are we living in!?) models.

Been doing this with a color hue bulb for years, and have a way better standalone alarm :)

I got the one below last February (via RFD, of course) but there was a $24 coupon that brought it down to $15.99 with no tax. You can turn off the display (I use only the wake up light and no alarm) and it also has the option to throw in a battery for backup and gets pretty bright in the wake-up modes and has a bunch of other fixed colour options in case you want to turn your bedroom into the red light district.

The UI is a bit confusing, but not much worse than the Philips lol

P.S. Sorry to hijack the thread

I bought one a month ago. I like it. Maybe I'm a sucker for not buying a Chinese one, but I wanted one that changes colour tone like the 3520 to match sunset/sunrise. The only Chinese ones I could see that did that were ~$50, and I got a warehouse deal for the Philips at $76. It seemed like a better bet. Unfortunately only the light works, no sound, but I've ordered a second one, and will return the first

It has wifi capabilities, thought it was a bit gimmicky at first, but I like accessing all the features via app.

TITI's are definitely great to wake up to.

I looked at these briefly, but found a vastly better option, IMHO, a Google Hub (or an Alexa version might work fine as well) and one of these things (still available at $20 off, but it's a brand new version of the product (careful not to buy the old one) so this price is gonna probably disappear tomorrow for a long while):

Voice activated, and automatically synchronizes the sunrise/sunset light and alarm time with no fiddling, AND, most importantly, no excessive glowing in the middle of the night.

Makes a really nice mood light in the evening as well.

It's sooooo nice to just verbally set the alarm, choose the wake-up song, tone or noise and just tell it when to snooze!

The white noise sounds at night are a nice bonus as well.
