Bodyclock Starter gradually brightens over 30 minutes

Why are Bodyclock wake-up lights so effective?

Bodyclock Starter 30 is a medical device that wakes you up gradually with a simulated sunrise. The brightening light brings you more gently out of sleep, prompting your body to reduce the production of sleep hormones such as melatonin, while increasing the levels of hormones like cortisol that help you get up and go. This provides a fantastic start to the day for sufferers of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and the winter blues, and helps anyone who is not naturally a morning person to feel brighter and more energetic first thing.

It’s not just a nicer way to wake up. Waking to natural light every day resets your sleep/wake cycle and has been shown to boost your mood, productivity and energy levels throughout the day. Our physiological body clocks are aligned by sunrise and sunset. As most of us experience a mix of early starts, late nights, weekend lie-ins and sometimes travel disruption, our internal sleep rhythms are thrown into disarray. We feel tired and stressed trying to wake up for work, school or sports training. A dawn simulator device re-sets your body clock to run in time with your day, helping you feel more awake during the day and more ready for sleep at night.

A perfect introduction to waking with light

As well as the 30-minute morning sunrise from the halogen bulb, the attractively-shaped Bodyclock Starter 30 comes with a sunset feature that helps you to unwind at night. The wake-up sunrise includes a snooze function and a back-up alarm beep for added reassurance. The bright light is dimmable so it can also be used like a normal bedside light, and the digital display dims to a low level, or completely off if you prefer, for sleeping. There is no need to worry about waking should the power go off--the device comes with power failure back-up. Bodyclock Starter 30 comes with a 2-year warranty.

Bodyclock Starter 30 is a certified medical device

Bodyclock Starter 30 is certified to the Medical Devices Directive EC93/42. It has been designed for a medical purpose, to help with SAD syndrome (Seasonal Affective Disorder), winter blues and other physical difficulties with waking and sleeping. As a medical device, it conforms to European manufacturing standards and carries the correct CE mark. Lumie Bodyclock has been tested and proven effective through clinical trials.

Lumie, the light therapy specialists

When you purchase a dawn simulator (light alarm clock), make sure it comes from a specialist, experienced company. A real dawn simulator can cost a lot of money and you want to ensure that it actually works for you. Bodyclock Starter 30 is made by Lumie, the Cambridge-based company who specialise in light therapy products – and nothing else. Lumie invented the integrated dawn simulator back in 1993. Working with the scientific community and gaining vital customer feedback over the years, they have developed the concepts into the best-selling Bodyclock range, as well as applying their specialist knowledge to create other devices for health issues such as SAD, jet lag and acne. They now sell a full range of SAD light boxes, SAD lamps, light alarm clocks and acne lamps.

Lumie Bodyclock

Although Lumie fail to advertise it well, the product in question can behave as both an 'alarm clock' (with sunrise & sunset lighting options, as well as an audible alarm for back-up) and an ambient light, meaning that if you once had a bedside lamp, you could simply ditch it and use the space for this product. This in itself is a wonderful concept since I previously had a habit of waking up to an alarm and feeling around for the right device to bash. Using the product as an ambient light is not a bad idea either, and I have to give kudos to Lumie for making it such a subtle but simple feature.

I'll get straight to the point; Just how good is it to wake up to a simulated 'sunrise'? Really, really good... For myself, it is the equivalent of someone slowly opening the blinds in my bedroom and letting a warm sheen of light enter, which slowly makes me more and more alert to the point that when I do open my eyes, I think to myself "Yikes, did I leave the light on?". The difference I've felt compared to the more startling "BEEP-BEEP... BEEP-BEEP' almost giving me a heart-attack is ridiculously positive. Its incredible to think that a simple light has stopped me from waking up with persistent yawns and a heavy head.

Operating Instructions are included in a very simple and easy to read manual that, unusually for English labour, appears more akin to an Apple product. A 42 watt bulb is obviously included (with a 2000 our lifetime!) and which you are required to easily screw in, as well as a Support Line card (in case you have any unforeseen problems) and the U.K power cable, which is attached to the device and not un-pluggable.

Aready owning, using & loving my Lumie SAD lamp, i had high hopes for this clock & was pretty excited looking forward to waking up with a smile on my face as big as the one pictured on the box of the bright eyed happy bed slumbering lady!

Forget it. I woke up like a feeling like a miserable grizzly bear.

I gave it two stars...one star because it works as an alarm clock (alarm on or off), & a second star because it works as a lamp, but that's it, i just cant see how it deserves more

These are my BIG dislikes about this Lumie clock...

1. The clock display on the front is fiddly to set, but once it's done it remains very bright. I had the clock on my bedside table & i sleep facing it...the digits were way too bright for me to sleep through. It is possible to dim or even turn the clock display off entirely but i found it didnt work until my sixth or seventh attempt at pressing the necessary sequenced buttons. This is the bit that really annoyed me...i had to do this every single night! Every single bedtime i found myself faffing around with the buttons, punching the sAme pattern in repeatedly until it finally accepted the instructions to switch the clock light off. I really do not want to be doing this every single bedtime.

2. I didn't feel a soothing sensation of gradually increasing light in the room, jn fact it didn't stir me at all, that is, until the full beam finally hit. This full beam woke me with a start & every time i used the wake up lamp it felt like someone was pointing a shockingly bright torch right in front of my sleeping eyes. Absolutely awful way to wake up. Nothing at all like the gentle awakening from the natural daylight making it's way through the curtains. & i certainly don't wake looking happy unlike the lady on the box.

Love the idea of this and the light definately wakes you up nicely....the biggest problem is the size of the digits on the clock display. They are very small and I cannot see the time when I wake during the night or in the morning. I have to have two alarm clocks the second with large digits just to see the time. The buttons are very close together and small and you can easily press the wrong button if the dexterity in your hands is not so good. I so wish that manufacturers and designers would think that about people with poor eyesight or any other physical challenges that we all have as we get older. A waste of money for me and I am now looking for similar products that have large LED displays.

Keeps gaining time.... Do not expect this from a expensive alarm clock, this should be a basic thing to get right. Contacted Lumie who advised I can send it back for a quote to repair. Probably not worth the cost once I've paid postage. Display very bright and not dimabble. While the sunrise feature works well, the alarm noise is annoying. Top of unit gets quite warm when light is on due to the 42w light bulb used, about time they joined the 21st century and used a LED. Overall disappointed with it and will not buy another Lumie product.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I received a wake-up light as a gift nearly 2 years ago (a Philips HF3480) and it's been the best alarm clock I've ever had, not only waking you on time but doing it in the most civilised way - like being woken by a whisper instead of a police siren. Although it works year-round I have noticed that it's definitely more effective on the darker Winter mornings or in bedrooms that don't catch the morning light.

This Lumie Bodyclock STARTER features a fixed 30 minute sunset or sunrise function and one bleeping (quite annoying) alarm - the bleep is optional, only there as a safety-net in case the light doesn't wake you. The controls are simple enough although the manual is a bit obtuse in explaining them. You activate the sunset function by turning the light on to your chosen brightness before switching on the alarm - the light will now fade to darkness over a fixed 30 minute period. On full brightness the light, which is daylight-coloured and virtually shadowless, is bright enough to read by and the sunset function means you're gently reminded to put the book down and go to sleep when it becomes too dim to continue. In the morning, 30 minutes before your chosen alarm time, the light starts to fade up again and somewhere in that 30 minute sunrise you should wake up again - I find I usually wake up before it reaches full brightness.

You can choose to display the time in 12 or 24 hour format and the clock display can be set to dim or go off completely during the night, which is great if glowing LED's bother you in the bedroom. There's only one alarm sound and no inbuilt radio.
