How can we brighten your day?


Rise & Shine ( Original ilumi app)

Waking up to a dark room is a drag.

Schedule the Rise & Shine Experience to wake up on the brighter side with your own personalized sunrise to start your day.

Schedule the time and days of the week to repeat and choose a thematic sunrise from around the world, Barcelona to Maui.

Sorry Alarm clock, your annoying chirping is no longer needed!

What Should I Expect When Using Rise & Shine?

While Rise & Shine is active, your ilumi Smartbulbs will slowly turn on, beginning at the alarm's start time. Over the course of 10-15 minutes the ilumi LED Smartbulbs will gradually become brighter and shift colors to ease you from your restful sleep to the waking world, until finally, ilumi will end the sunrise experience on your specific default color.

Helpful Tip: The Rise & Shine works great in the bedroom. But when you're ready to hit the road, remember to pack your ilumi LED Smartbulb and swap it out with your hotel room's boring light bulb. Set your Rise & Shine experience to help you wake up refreshed, and say goodbye to jet lag!
