Light alarm clock.

Do dimmer/timer combo adapters for lamps exist? I want to be able to set a timer AND dimmer on my bedside lamp so that at a scheduled time in the morning it will slowly scale upwards in brightness, simulating a sunrise. I know lamps with this feature built-in exist, but can you get an adapter that works on any lamp? I can only find timer and dimmer adapters alone, but never as a unit.

Yes. You can use the Soleil alarm clock with the add-on adapter for a full size lamp. It costs an extra $40 for the adapter.

You can also do this with X10.

Best answer: Here is a description using X10

It's a little on the pricey side, but I keep coming across this lamp. X10 would probably be your cheapest bet, though it's require a little bit of initial fiddling.

Search Amazon for SRS100US -- it's a clock that'll work with any lamp. $104.95.
