Are you tired in the morning? Does your body feel like it doesn't want to get up?
Create an artificial dawn with Wake Up Light, so getting up in the morning feels easier and more natural. Built for use with HomeKit enabled lights, now it’s easy to add a wake-up light alarm to the Apple Home app.
Set a light alarm that starts your day before your desired wake up time (a recommended duration is something between 30 and 60 minutes). Your light brightens to the maximum intensity by the time you’ve set, by shifting from dim warm red, ending in bright and cold white after its light up duration. The brighter the light, the better the effect will be on your body. The goal is to put you into lighter sleep, so that you awake easier.
- Alarms that turn on lights and shift colors as they brighten.
- Support for all HomeKit enabled lights with spectrums including: color, natural and white.
- The alarm is set in your Apple home hub (required) – no need to keep your iPhone connected (or even on).
- Set the days Wake Up Light should wake you.
- Create multiple wake-up lights and control multiple accessories per alarm.
- Preview your wake-up light.
Wake Up Light lets you easily create wake-up lights that fit your needs. Just select your light and preferred wake-up time and Wake Up Light will create HomeKit automations for you, turning your lights on gradually over time.
You can adjust the duration of the brightening phase from 10 to 90 minutes (between 30 and 60 minutes is recommended) and adjust the brightness, your lights will reach. Your light then brightens to the maximum intensity by the time you’ve set, by shifting from dim warm red, ending in bright and cold white after its light up duration (if supported by the light bulb). The brighter the light, the better the effect will be on your body. The goal is to put you into lighter sleep, so that you awake easier.
Add multiple wake-up lights as a weekly schedule. Control different lights with their own custom time, duration and brightness. Everyone in the same house can control the wake-up lights, too – thanks to HomeKit.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A wake-up light alarm clock brings you slowly in shallower states of sleep by gradually increasing the brightness in your room. The light travels through your closed eye lids, notifying your body the same way as a natural sunrise. This gradual transition from deeper to shallower states of sleep has been found to wake you more naturally and boost your mood, energy and productivity for the whole day through.
Let your lights brighten your morning.

App does what it says.
App does what it says it will. However I would like to see a feature added to make it 5 stars. Customizable color options.
Developer Response ,
Hey, thank you for your feedback, I will add it to my todo-list. Could you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your idea and why you would like to have it? Is it, because you don't like the current colors? Is it, because you need a special color gradient for other purposes? Thank you in advance!
Simplify HomeKit automations!
HomeKit automations are super powerful, but complex series of automations like this can be tiresome and error prone to setup by hand. Wake Light does this right, and it’s awesome!
Pro Tip #1: A series of scenes will be created - if you don’t want to see them in the Home app, you can long tap on them, and deselect “Include in Favorites”. (Third party developers don’t have control over this, so don’t blame this app!)
Pro Tip #2: Use the Shortcuts app to set your light to turn off when you stop your alarm. The automation created with Wake Light are smart enough to not turn back on again! Very well done!
I was hoping 🤞
It looks like you need lights for it to control the brightness of that, hence why you need to set up home. I was thinking it would utilize your iphones flashlight and/or screen brightness like the other crappy apps but no 😔 shame cuz the ui looks so nice too
Developer Response ,
Sorry, that this app is not "like the other crappy apps". 😉 If you really want a functioning wake up light, get a HomeKit enabled light and a home hub and use this app. ✌️
