App Description

Don't you hate having to set a seperate alarm schedule for your LIFX & Philips Hue smart light? Sunrise Alarm for LIFX & Hue was made to fix this! The first automated sunrise alarm clock for LIFX & Philips Hue that has all the features you could ever ask for! Transform your LIFX & Hue lights into full-featured wake up lights!

How it works:
This app reads the next alarm set and turns on your LIFX & Hue lights before your alarm automatically, emulating a sunrise in your bedroom. It integrates with your regular alarm clock app!

• Adjustable colors: from red to the different shades of white (1500-6500k)
• Dynamic customizable color transition: light changes its color gradually e.g. from deep orange to daylight white
• Sunrise starting time before the alarm: 0 - 90 min
• Duration of the sunrise: 0 - 90 min
• Twilight: blue light before the sunrise
• Turns off the light afterwards automatically if desired
• Active hours: only act on alarms in a specified time frame
• Custom schedules
• Schedules can be exported to the bridge (Hue only)
• IFTTT support
• Tasker/Automate integration via intents
• Select single lights or groups/rooms

Please contact me, if the app doesn't work! I'll do my best to fix the issue but need your help in doing so. Every bug report helps me improving the app! I'll send you a refund, if we can't get it to work!

Be advised:
• For Android 10 the permission to draw over other apps is needed. The app has to ask for this permission before it can launch the UI.
• For Philips Hue a bridge is required. Bluetooth connected lights are not supported!
• Aggressive battery saving features of some devices/vendors may interfere with the functionality of Sunrise Alarm. Please keep them disabled or exclude Sunrise Alarm!
• On Android 8 and above Sunrise Alarm is now forced to run in foreground with a permanent notification. This is due to new rules set by Google crippling apps that run in background.
• Some wakeup apps don't set regular alarms that Sunrise Alarm can read. Automatic reading of the next alarm won't work with e.g. PocketBell.

Don't got any LIFX or Hue lights?
If you've got a smartlight that's supported by IFTTT, Sunrise Alarm can still provide basic functionality. In the debug menu there is the setting "IFTTT / Tasker only mode" and with this you can use Sunrise Alarm without having to setup or even own any LIFX or Hue lights!

Exactly what I was looking for and works wonderfully on Android 11

Genau das was ich lange gesucht habe! Nur bin ich leider sehr empfindlich was Licht angeht und wache daher bereits bei geringen Leuchtstufen auf. Besteht die Möglichkeit die Helligkeit bei einem niedrigeren Schwellenwert starten zu lassen oder aber die maximale Helligkeit am Ende der Aufwachperiode auf weniger als 10% zu stellen? Zum Beispiele durch neue Stufen für die maximale Helligkeit (z.B. 1% -> 5% -> 10%)? Durch den Wechsel von rotem auf weißes Licht steigt die Helligkeit ohnehin an!

This was the only simple solution I could find for a smart bulb (LIFX) sunrise alarm on android and it has worked amazing for me so far. I really appreciate the work that went into making it and there are a lot of useful customization options. The only quirk I ran into was that my sunrise would not trigger if my phone switched to my 5g network (because I had it set to recognize 2.4 as the home network). I just had my phone forget the 5g network which is not ideal, but gets the job done.
