Rise helps you to wake up feeling fresh.

Let's face it, waking up sucks.
It shouldn't have to be a struggle, but for most of us getting out of bed is the hardest part of the day.
That's why we set out to build Rise, a smart wake up light that starts your day right.

So what is Rise?
Rise is a smart alarm clock that gradually lights your room before your alarm goes off. The light gently tells your body it’s time to wake up so you don’t end up hitting the snooze button over and over. You wake up feeling refreshed and get more time to spend your morning the way you want to.

Our story

We started developing Rise in early 2015 because no product on the market met our needs. We wanted something that looked good, sounded great and woke us up feeling fresh. Existing solutions were uninspiring, clunky to use and lacked features. Since then, we've gone through countless iterations to build the ultimate wake up light. It's well known early risers are more successful, so we want to give everybody that chance.

Intelligent design

Rise lives in your bedroom so it's important that it works with, not against you. The OLED display automatically dims in the dark so it doesn't keep you awake. It has built in fast-charge USB ports so you can charge your phone overnight. You can use the radio, your music, spotify or a traditional tone for your alarm sound. Every feature of rise has been carefully considered to give you the maximum benefit. What's more, Rise is also a bluetooth speaker you can use throughout the day.

Companion App

Our companion app is the best way to set alarms. It gives you complete control over everything Rise can do. We’ve all missed that crucial early morning meeting by forgetting to set an alarm, so our app will remind you of your upcoming calendar events.

Why Dawn Simulation?

Humans are programmed to wake up when the sun rises, which is why we feel better when we wake up naturally at the weekend. Rise mimics the sun using high powered LEDs that gradually brighten to gently lift you out of sleep. The light acts as a trigger for your body to wake up so you feel fresh and ready to start your day. What's more, the colour of the light automatically changes from cold to warm throughout the day so in the evening it gives your body the cue it needs to go to sleep.
