BEACON40 is not a medical device and is not intended as a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. We developed BEACON40 for our families and loved ones when we became aware of research that showed 40Hz light therapy may reduce the risk of developing age-related memory loss and may slow its progression. It’s beneficial to have a proactive routine to maintain healthy brain function and to achieve sustained sleeping patterns.

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 health and wellness, our users’ experiences are remarkably aligned with the research from leading brain health institutes. 

At BRIGHT we are continuously following emerging scientific studies that support the benefits of 40Hz lights. We share published articles about that research  here

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 an effortless method of stimulating the brain’s activity and rejuvenating healthy brain rhythm. 40Hz light therapy complements daily wellness routines for those who want to improve sleep, maintain memory and attention, and reduce the risk of experiencing age-related memory loss. The lights pulse at 40Hz or 40 flashes per second. Brain waves in this frequency are associated with higher-order cognitive function. Daily exposure for just one hour each day can complement your regular routines like reading, watching television, and answering emails.

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.
