How do Bodyclock dawn simulators work?

Bodyclock Active 250 wakes you up gradually with a simulated sunrise. The brightening light brings you gently out of sleep, prompting your body to suppress the sleep hormone melatonin while increasing hormones like cortisol to help you get up and go. It provides a fantastic start to the day for sufferers of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and helps non-morning people to feel brighter and more energetic.It's helpful for sports training to enable you to be ready to perform at your best and Lumie are official suppliers to the British Swimming team.

Waking to natural light resets your sleep/wake cycle and has been shown to boost your mood, productivity and energy levels all day. Our physiological body clocks are aligned by sunrise and sunset and can be thrown into disarray by modern life. We feel tired and stressed waking early for work or school. Bodyclock restores the rhythm, helping you feel awake during the day and ready to sleep at night.

Combine light and sound for ideal mornings and nights

Active 250’s variable sunrise and sunset can be accompanied by a rooster call, dawn chorus, alarm or FM radio in the morning and waves and white noise at night. It doubles as a bedside light, nightlight and security light, and comes with a snooze function,dimmable display, back-up beeper and power back-up.

Bodyclock Active 250 is a certified medical device EC93/42

Designed to help with SAD, winter blues and other waking and sleeping difficulties, it conforms to European standards and carries the correct CE mark. Bodyclock has been proven effective by clinical trials and comes with clear usage guidelines.

Made by specialist light therapy inventors

Active 250 is made by Lumie, the Cambridge-based light therapy specialist which invented the integrated dawn simulator in 1993. Working with the scientific community they have developed the best-selling Bodyclock range as well as devices for SAD, jet lag, acne and hay fever.

This is a 2 month retrospective look after having purchased this from John Lewis, and I'll do what I can to skip over what the product review from the manufacturer already tells you.

PROS:
- Gradual sunrise setting are brilliant. Not having a bright flash of light bursting through makes a pleasant and noticeable difference in the morning.
- You have control over how long a period you want the light to slowly dim on, and how bright you want it to get to.
- The lamp is BRIGHT if you want it to be, it is easily comparable to a 100W bulb.
- Various different alarm clock noises, including a radio, so on the whole you'll find something that suits you. I found that the radio (when put to something easy like Heart FM) is generally the best, and I have yet to put it on snooze since. This is coming from a long-time-multi-snooze person (7am? nahhh.... 20 more minutes...).
- For all you oldies, there's still that alarm noise (BEEP BEEP BEEP...) that will make you nostalgic for the 80s. But the aforementioned radio is still more pleasant. ;)
- A relatively cheap replaceable bulb (£5). Now that might sound like a no-brainer, I mean aren't all bulbs replaceable? Well, if you were to buy the Philips version of this lamps, the answer is "no". So though it seems like such a non-issue, make sure whichever slow dimming/glowing lamp you buy, you can buy just the bulb and not have to buy the whole unit again.
- 2 Years manufacturer's warranty included, so if your machine decides to not work, you can rest assured that someone will fix it for you. Granted you'll be minus 1 alarm clock for that duration.

I originally bought a Lumie Bodyclock 250 in November 2012.
I absolutely loved the product, particularly with the way it both helps you get to sleep (sunset function) and wake up gradually (sunrise function).
I also liked the little details - e.g. the fact that you can set the volume levels separately for the radio alarm and for just playing the radio socially during the day.

What I didn't like was the fact that it apparently didn't keep very good time - it was always losing time, and never gaining.

I left a 3* review on the Lumie website as a result of the poor timekeeping, and was contacted the same day by Doug from the technical team at Lumie.
Over a series of weeks and several conversations and trial runs, we figured out what the issue was, and it's this :
If you e.g. change the alarm time, and then use the main middle menu button to skip through all the menu options before it cycles back to its "neutral" state you will have inadvertently reset the seconds to 00 seconds.
I.e. as you skip past the "set time" (not set alarm) menu option, the software is set up such that it assumes you have reset the time and hence resets the seconds back to 00. So every time you do this you can lose up to a maximum of 59 seconds (and on average 30 seconds per time) - hence why it always loses time and never gains.
As I get up at different times on different days, I was resetting the alarm and skipping through menu options 2 or 3 times a week, which is why I easily found it losing 10 minutes in 4 weeks...

I find it incredibly strange at some of the comments on this review to be honest but I'll clarify later.

Firstly, this is an excellent device to wake up to. There are multiple modes you can select from and the light is extremely bright and completely silent (some Phillips devices have a low hum from what I hear).

Now then, we all know it is expensive. The build quality, in my opinion, is what I would expect for this price due to the features it has. It is indeed plastic but I don't feel that it is "cheap" as such. The unit is secure and I feel the buttons are fit for purpose. To be honest, most of the reviews give a good indication of exactly what it can do so I'm not going to bother too much talking about the sunrise/sunset features. In short, you can amend the times and they work an absolute treat.

What I am going to talk about is some of the other concerns I've read in the other reviews.

The LCD clock does indeed dim. I've no idea why people are covering up the front screen saying it's too bright. If you haven't set the alarm, the LCD screen will stay on all night. HOWEVER, it quite clearly states in the manual that if you hold in the "-" and "+" keys at the same time, it will go into sunset mode and then reduce the front panel to it's dimmest setting. Once it's in sunset mode, just use the "-" key if you don't want to wait the set time and switch the bulb off so the panel reduces. Problem solved!

The clock also has a feature that if you're using it as a lamp, it will automatically switch off after 90 minutes. This is quite self explanatory and you can instantly activate it again by holding the "+" key.

The device is NOT complicated. All the actions are carried out by the use of 3 main keys.
