Product & Use

Beacon40 is a noninvasive method of stimulating the brain’s activity and rejuvenating healthy brain function. The lights deliver pulsing at 40Hz. That’s 40 flashes per second. Brain waves in this frequency are associated with improving mental acuity, memory and attention. It is recommended as a passive therapy for those who want to prevent cognitive decline or to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

Daily exposure for one or more hours per day can complement your regular routines like reading, watching television or answering emails. 

Both the Beacon40 Personal and Beacon40 Surround are noninvasive and are designed to complement, not interfere, with your existing daily routines. The difference is only in the number of lights in each kit.

Beacon40 Personal has one light. It is designed to be used in more intimate locations like in an office or on a vanity. Most place it on a desk and use it while answering emails or searching the web.

Beacon40 Surround includes two lights and is designed for larger spaces such as a living room or kitchen. Set it up around your TV, with one light on each side, or use it in a shared home office or living room.

An abundance of naturally occurring amyloid plaques in the brain can be responsible for interrupting healthy brain rhythms. Recent research has indicated that these plaques begin to build up in the brain 15 to 20 years before any behavioral symptoms of Alzheimer’s become apparent. Just like you brush your teeth to keep plaque away — it’s beneficial to have a proactive routine to maintain healthy brain function.

Research has shown that gamma light therapy may operate both to reduce the amount of amyloid plaque buildup and to excite healthy brain function. The use of Beacon40 lights may have a positive effect in the prevention of the development of Alzheimer’s in at-risk individuals who have not yet been diagnosed with the disease.

Generally, our users tell us that at about 6 weeks of routine use, they notice a qualitative difference. Even though everyone is different and we meet people at varying ages and stages of cognitive decline, our users’ experiences are remarkably aligned with the research from leading brain institutes. And we’re interested to hear about your experience as well.

Beacon40 represents the fast-tracking cutting-edge, scientific research to create safe, easy-to-use wellness routines for enhanced brain health. Beacon40 is modeled after ongoing human trials coming from leading brain health institutes including MIT, Georgia Tech and other reputable resources.

Many people use Beacon40 lights as part of a preventative brain health routine and have reported substantial improvements in sleep and concentration. Others have reported similar results with falling asleep faster and experiencing longer, deeper sleep.

If you are considering using Beacon40 as a targeted therapy for a specific medical condition, you should consult your doctor.

Beacon40 is designed to be convenient and easy to use. For recommended use, sit comfortably with the lights in your peripheral view about 3 to 12 feet away for at least one hour per day. The lights should be in your peripheral view – that means you must have your eyes open for them to be effective but you should not look directly into the lights. Adjust your settings according to your preferences.

After setting up your Beacon40 light system, you can adjust the tone, brightness & timing of the lights through the simple controls on the base.

An exciting new feature available connects your Beacon40 to your smart home. After pairing your light system through Tuya Smart App, you can use your phone to control your settings. Additionally, you can pair Beacon40 to Alexa or Google Home. Through this feature, you will be able to adjust the settings through voice commands.

We offer a video tutorial and a Smart Home Connection Guide on how to easily connect Beacon40 with your smart home.

Safety and Precautions

Our Beacon40 light therapy is designed for use as a complement to your doctor-prescribed Alzheimer’s therapy and is safe and easy to use. You should not use this product if you have a history of seizures or epilepsy, or have been diagnosed with photosensitive epilepsy. Please consult a doctor before use if you believe you may be prone to this.

We recommend Beacon40 as a complement to your doctor-prescribed protocols. Always talk to your doctor when adding any supplement to your wellness routine.

No drug interactions are known to occur with the use of Beacon40, but you should always consult a doctor in advance if you have concerns regarding specific medication interactions. Beacon40 should not be used to replace medications or other prescribed treatments for Alzheimer’s patients.
