Lamp Alarms Day/Night
Your Loftie Lamp isn’t an ordinary bedside lamp—it is also a personal sunrise, even if you want to wake up at noon!
You must have your Loftie Lamp connected to the Loftie app in order to set an alarm. You can learn more here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any additional assistance.
How sunrise alarms work
A sunrise alarm works just like the sun!
At the set alarm time, the sunrise alarm will start illuminating the Loftie Lamp—starting from the base and slowly moving up the full column, growing brighter as it goes. From start to finish, this takes 9 minutes, the standard snooze time. If you have a Loftie Clock, this means that your sunrise will start when the Wake-Up alarm starts and finishes when the Get-Up alarm goes off.
You can turn the sunrise alarm off at any time by pressing any button on the back of the lamp.
Please note: unlike a sound-based alarm, the sunrise alarm will NOT snooze. Because it starts gradually and increases in intensity, this is different than a traditional alarm. Once the alarm has been turned off, it will stay off.
Setting an alarm
Set an alarm by selecting the + sign in the app from any page. By default, all alarms are scheduled to repeat every day. Click on each day to turn the alarm off for that day (you will see a / through the day) to customize the schedule. If you have both a Loftie Clock and Loftie Lamp connected, alarms will automatically be set for both devices.
You can view all set alarms and customize them by tapping anywhere on the Mornings module on the bottom right. Only the next set alarm will display in the Mornings module.
You can select what sunrise you would prefer to wake up to by clicking on Settings on the Alarms page.

Here at Loftie, we believe that having a consistent and enjoyable bedtime routine is just as important as the morning. Besides being a great reading light, your Loftie Lamp has several features designed for evening use.
First and foremost, one of the core Loftie Lamp modes is meant to be used in the evening. Night mode has no blue light so you can get ready for bed without worrying about inadvertently keeping your brain away. The red hue may seem different at first, but trust us, it’s actually our favorite to turn on after the sun has gone down.
If you have our Loftie Clock, you’re familiar with this one! The Bed Signal is meant to let you know that it’s time to turn the TV off, put down that book, shut the laptop, etc, and get ready for bed. Establishing a consistent bedtime is key to getting a good night of sleep!
At the set time, the Loftie Lamp will turn on. You can pair this with the Loftie Clock for a nice audible reminder as well. Turn it off by simply clicking any button.
Sometimes knowing you’re supposed to go to sleep isn’t the same thing as actually going to sleep. Utilize Wind-Down mode to force future you to shut those eyes rather than stay up hours past your bedtime.
At the set time, Wind-Down mode will start a gradual sunset. Essentially the opposite of a sunrise alarm, Wind-Down mode is your own personal sunset. Don’t worry, it happens over the course of nine minutes so it won’t be jarring and you have time to finish your chapter. Finish early? Simply turn it off early by clicking any button.
