Our family was really excited for this light to arrive - our 3 year old loved the red/yellow/green lights as he loves guidance, and my husband and I were excited to not have our son climbing into our bed at 5am. I was disappointed the very first night by the volume of the white noise. Maybe it's just our kids, but the volume was way too low and I asked my husband to turn the volume up, to which he replied, "that's as high as it goes". As another reviewer mention, now we need to have both the light and our sound machine on at the same time.
The most frustrating feature being that it plays "wake up" music when the light turns green. I wanted a light signal to give my son the 'okay' to get out of bed IF he was awake. I didn't want an alarm clock to wake him up if he happens to be sleeping in. It would be one thing if my child had to get up for school in the morning and we were on a strict schedule, but he's a toddler. If he's sleeping, let him sleep! And of course you can't turn the music volume down to zero so that there's no 'wake ip' music.
The only benefit to this light machine is that my son actually stays in bed until 6:30am when the light turns green, which is I guess why we purchased it in the first place, hence the 3 stars.
All in all, it technically works, but has some major design flaws. You get what you pay for.
