The days are starting to get darker, and for many areas ¬†right now.¬†I have talked with a few customers lately about timers for their light box.¬†Unfortunately,¬†the North Star 10,000 does not have a timer but with the holiday season coming up you can easily purchase a plug in timer to connect your light box to. Just plug the timer into the wall, the North Star 10,000 to the timer and set it for the time you want to wake up.
I found a few plug in timers that are anywhere from $4- $37 with Home Depot. But you can purchase these at any local hardware store to turn your therapy light into a morning light alarm clock, but prices may vary.
This timer is ideal for lamps, seasonal lighting or portable fans. It features a convenient override allowing you to immediately change the setting.¬†Programmable in 30 minute intervals with multiple daily settings
This timer is easy to set in 30 minute intervals. It also featrues an override switch which allows you to cancel or change any setting.
