Why Sleep Matters

What happens while you sleep has a huge impact on your life. People who don’t get enough sleep have problems making decisions, solving problems, being productive, controlling their emotions, and coping with change. They are also at greater risk of major health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

What happened to sleep?

Before electric lighting, people’s lives revolved around the natural light cycle of the sun. The rise of electric lighting and electronics means we don’t have to depend on the sun for light, but this new lifestyle also means our bodies aren’t able to prepare for sleep like they used to.

Light Temperature

+ Problem

The bluer light emitted from electronics and some energy efficient bulbs is especially bad for sleep.  Studies done at Harvard and the University of Toronto have shown that blue light suppresses melatonin (your body’s natural sleep agent) twice as much as other kinds of light.

+ Solution

The Drift Light helps solve this problem in two ways. First, it is designed to slowly dim over time to help promote relaxation and an increase in melatonin. It also uses a much warmer form of light than other bulbs. By reducing the amount of blue light emitted, which also increases melatonin and helps get you ready for sleep.

Sleep Routine

+ Problem

Falling asleep is highly dependent on behavior. Any disruptions in your bedtime routine may lead to difficulty falling asleep. Our bodies don’t adjust well to abrupt changes. Having an easy transition from waking to sleeping helps prepare you for sleep.

+ Solution

The Drift Light has been designed to mimic a sunset by slowly dimming over 37 minutes. This gives your body that gradual shift from light to darkness and gives you the opportunity to engage in relaxing activities to help you feel sleepy.

Safety

+ Problem

During your nightly routine you probably go through the whole house and turn off all the lights, and risk stumbling over furniture on your way back to the bedroom.

Nightlights on your outlets are an unsightly compromise for safety.

+ Solution

The Drift™ Light’s Moonlight Mode can be activated during your bedtime routine, giving you plenty of time to get ready for bed.

Moonlight mode gives off just enough light to keep you safe without using up an outlet.

Kids Stay In Bed

+ Problem

Routines are important to help anyone get to sleep. But for kids, routines are even more important. Even the slightest of disruptions will throw off their sleep routines and cause them to wake up, and then come wake you up. Having an easy transition from waking to sleeping helps.

+ Solution

The Drift Bulb automaticaly dims over a period of 37 minutes, the same time as an average sunset,easing kids to sleep while keeping them from getting up and turning the light off . For kids that need a little bit of light to sleep, the Drift Light can be set to Moonlight Mode, which dims down to a nightlight mode.

FAQ

How does light affect sleep?

Any kind of light, especially blue light, can suppress melatonin, which is a sleep promoting hormone. That means the more light we are exposed to as we get ready for bed can make it harder to fall asleep. Any immediate shifts from bright light to darkness can also make it harder to get to sleep.

How much energy savings compared to other bulbs?

This will vary depending on where you live and how often you use the bulb. Using the bulb 8 hours a day in the U.S. you will save an average of $11.28 per year, per bulb. 

Why use 37 minutes as the dimming cycle time?

37 minutes is the average duration of a sunset. It gives your body the gradual shift from light to darkness that your body needs in order to prepare for sleep. 

How often will I have to replace this bulb?

The Drift Light has an average lifespan of 30,000 hours. That’s over thirty times longer than incandescent bulbs.

Why is the Drift Light superior to regular lights?

The Drift Light has been specially designed to help promote a healthy sleep. Its auto-dimming feature helps your body have a gradual shift from light to darkness to help prepare you for sleep. It also has much less blue light, since blue light has been shown to suppress melatonin and make it harder to get to sleep. 

What wattage incandescent does it replace and how many watts does it use?

The Drift Light replaces 40 Watt incandescent bulbs and uses only 7 Watts.

+ More

Is the color temperature similar to an incandescent?

The Drift Bulb has the same warm color as incandescent bulbs, giving your room a welcoming feel and making it easier for you to get ready for sleep. 

How do I know when Midnight Mode or Moonlight Mode have been activated?

The Drift Light will blink once when Midnight Mode has been activated and twice when Moonlight Mode has been activated.

Do I need any special wiring or fixtures?

The Drift Light was made to work with any standard Edison base. Which means you can use it in your existing light fixtures without having to change the wiring.

What are the physical dimensions of the bulb?

The Drift Light is 120mm long (including the screw) and 60mm wide (at its widest point).

How hot does the Drift Light run?

In open air the Drift Light will be warm to the touch (about 90° Fahrenheit).

How well does the drift light diffuse light?

Traditionally, the biggest problem with LEDs is that they only shine in one direction. The Drift Light has a special diffusing cap to ensure that it will shine light equally in a 180 degree arc. 

How do I reset the Drift Light?

To reset the Drift Light, simply turn it off for longer than two seconds.

Can I use this with a lamp? Or other unusual fixtures like can lighting, track lighting, ect?

As long as your lamp or fixture uses the Edison base (used by most light bulbs), you can use the Drift Light with it without any problems.

Can I use a dimmer switch to control the Drift Light?

No, the Drift Light can’t be used at all with a dimmer switch.

Does the Drift Light contain any harmful materials?

Unlike CFLs, the Drift Light doesn’t contain any toxic materials. 

How can I remember how many clicks to do for each mode? 

We made the Drift Light to be easy to program and remember. To help you get used to it, the Drift Light comes with a removable sticker with programming instructions that you can place near your light switch.

What happens when I accidentally turn the light off during a cycle (or if there’s a blackout or brownout)?

The Drift Light will not be damaged by a blackout or a brownout. And as long as the light is off for less than two seconds, it won’t interrupt the cycle.

Can I use more than one on a light switch?

Yes, all Drift Lights will be programmed simultaneously with the same switch.

Can I throw this away in a normal landfill?

It is always important to recycle, especially when disposing of electronics.
