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.

I was struggling to decide whether to purchase this alarm clock or one of the more expensive models. I read many reviews on various different wake-up lights and in the end I thought "try the cheap option and see how it goes" ... I'm now glad that I didn't spend more money on a more expensive model. Some of the reviews of this alarm clock led me to believe that it would be "noisy" - I suspect the reviewers received defective units as I am a light sleeper and with previous alarms/devices I would awaken the instant that I heard a familiar "click" or "buzz" from the device. This light definitely does not emit any noise.

I find that I wake up around 20 minutes into the 30-minute long cycle (the light takes 30 minutes to adjust from completely off to completely on). So I have set the "alarm" time for the light at 6:10am (meaning that the light will begin illuminating at 5:40am and will be at full brightness at 6:10am) and have set my phone alarm for 6:00am. This seems to work well for me as the light wakes me up shortly before the alarm sounds. On full brightness, this light easily matches the brightness of the 11W LED (60W equivalent) ceiling light in the bedroom.

I only have 2 gripes with this product. The first is that the buttons are a bit "clicky". The second is that in order to turn the display off you must hold the "-" and "+" buttons until the clock emits a loud beep! Not good when your partner's already asleep and you forgot to turn off the display! This is the main reason for not marking the product as 5-star.

The positive aspect of this light, which far outweighs any negatives, is that I wake up far more naturally with this light and don't suffer with the groggy feeling that used to accompany waking up to an alarm in the pitch black.

Clichéd but this has literally changed my life. I wake up in the morning now and I am actually awake and can get up and do things. Really amazing

Bought this as I, like many of us, struggle to wake up in the morning. Especially on dark, dingy mornings typical of the UK in winter. So I decided to give the Lumie bodyclock a try, and boy did I make the right decision. The gradual simulated sunrise is excellent, waking up to it definitely improves my morning mood! The clock was easy to setup with the instructions provided. I don't use the alarm, instead I accompany the Lumie with a Roberts Dreamtime 2 DAB radio which is also excellent. At full brightness, the light is good enough for reading/changing into your PJ's! When the light is set ready for timed wakeup, the display dims to a level suitable for a bedroom at night. In the morning, the light goes out after 30 mins by default so you can't accidentally leave it on. In summary: it's brilliant!

bought this to aid winter blues early rising in the darkness. The light part is great. It acutally does make you wake up more naturally. BUT, the alarm!!!! AGH!!! it's the most grating over loud piercing blast you have heard in ages. all the good work of the light wasted by the SHOCK TACTICS of the alarm

Amazing. Does exactly as described. Not very intuitive to set up, but instructions are clear and precise, and when you have done it once it's easy. The light is not artificial but very day-like. Also like the sunset function - there is no snooze though (although you can turn the light down and it will slowly light up again). I use it along with my phone alarm.
