The SunRise Controller turns any lamp in your home into a SunRise Clock! Just insert the plug from your favorite lamp into the adapter, and you will have the world\'s most sophisticated dawn simulator. It includes a high quality FM radio, preset buttons, and loads of programmable features. You can opt to wake up to a peaceful sunrise of 15, 30, 45 or 60 minute duration, and wake to a radio station, pleasant alarm beep, or flashing light. When it is time to sleep, let the variable sunset and fade-out radio options lull you into peaceful dreams. The beautiful large display is very easy to read with clear symbols to indicate which programming options have been activated, and you can choose to have the smart display become dim at night so it won\'t keep you awake.
