Your Lights Are Your New Alarm Clock!
Just say “Alexa, set a light alarm for 7am with my bedroom light”
With this delightful new feature*, you can now set an Alexa light alarm that will gradually brighten your bedroom smart lights in the 3 minutes leading up to the time when your Alexa alarm goes off. All you have to say is “Alexa, set a light alarm for 7am with (insert name of your smart light).” You can also tack on an “every weekday” to the end of the Alexa command if you’d like. And there’s no need to worry about oversleeping when you try this new feature: your regular Alexa alarm sound will ring at the set time too. I love using the new Alexa light alarm to get me out of bed in the morning — it’s much harder to keep snoozing when your bedroom lights are on!
Pro Tip: Don’t have smart lights yet? This new Alexa light alarm feature is just one more reason why you should get started today. Plus, the all-new Philips Hue Bluetooth Smart Lights couldn’t be easier to set up. Check out VoiceBrew’s guide to setting up smart lights and choosing the best smart lights for your needs.

- Get some extra zzz’s. Let’s be honest: even with lighting alarms, I still occasionally love hitting snooze. Just say “Alexa, snooze” for 9 more minutes of sleep
