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.

I have to say I was very excited for it to arrive, I had been suffering with tiredness for the past few weeks due to the darker evenings and mornings.
I have been using this everyday for about a month now, and can say the results are brilliant.
I am pleasantly woken up before my alarm goes off, I am not tired throughout the day, no more mid afternoon slumps. I've even stopped taking my iron tablets as I don't need them, I feel so awake.
The lamp originally started up in French, which confused me slightly as I thought this was a British make? I thought the default language would be in English but hey ho I got round that after pressing holding down the middle button, then continually pressing it until it came up 'Francais' then clicked the + sign until it came up in English.
The instructions are very clear and once plugged in it is set perfectly now for each night, if you unplug it, you will lose your settings.
You just have to set it before you wish to sleep for the sunset option to kick in.
I have not used the radio and therefore cannot comment on quality.
The lamp gets very bright so is great for reading in bed.
The alarm noises are nice, not shrill or annoying, I have been using the bird song which can be set quite low so that it gently wakes you up, it doesn't stir my partner either as I keep me on my side of the bed.
It came with a bulb but no replacement so hold onto the box in the event of the light blowing so you can get the same one.
I believe this to be a high quality item and it has greatly improved my sleep pattern and by default my energy and mood!
The build quality of the unit is excellent - the plastic dome is sturdy and is held in place by several lugs. You will need to remove the dome to change the bulb. Replacements are readily available. Nice thinking on the part of the designers.
Now for the bad news.. The controls on the Bodyclock can only be described as 'quirky'. Getting the unit to do what you want isn't as straightforward as you'd think. Examples:
* Turning the alarm on also activates the sunset - the designers assume (reasonably) that these two functions will be used together. The unit doesn't automatically switch the light on and start dimming it when the Alarm/Sunset mode is activated - however if you switch the light and/or sounds on manually, they immediately start to fade to off, according to the menu settings. If you turn the light or sounds back on after they have faded to off, you get another sunset effect, and so on. (Bizarrely the beeping alarm is grouped with the wellbeing sounds - if you wanted you could have an electronic beep that fades away to nothing with your 'sunset'!)
* If you don't want an alarm in the morning, you can activate the Sunset mode separately (but see below).
* The LED display can be set to auto-dim along with the light, but this only works if the unit is in Alarm or Sunset mode. If neither is selected, the LED stays on at full blast even if the lamp is off, and will probably keep you awake at night as it is bright. Because of this, you'll probably want to keep the unit permanently in Sunset or Alarm mode, unless you want to use the reading light for any length of time.
* The Alarm mode deactivates when the alarm is switched off in the morning - you have to remember to activate it again. This is the 'feature' that will probably cause most annoyance, as every clock-radio I've ever used sounds the radio or buzzer daily until you switch off the alarm mode. Fortunately I've got into the habit of checking the alarm is switched on and set to the right time before I go to sleep (paranoia of being late for work) so it's no problem for me to turn the Bodyclock alarm back on, which is a single button press.
I've had the Bodyclock for a week now and fortunately I've already got used to its odd controls. It does its job so well that I can forgive it being a bit fiddly to use, but I've had to knock off a couple of stars for this as it will undoubtedly irritate some buyers. The manual makes reference to displaying the "software version" on the LED - perhaps the next-generation Bodyclock will come with built-in wifi so it can go online and update its firmware, blu-ray player style?!
The sunset option is a great way to gently go to sleep, but generally you can only use the sunset if you've put your alarm on. It has a fantastic feature of being able to go to sleep listening to a sound (I chose the waves because is was most relaxing) that slowly gets quieter over the sunset until it stops. This is perfect for me as I suffer from tinnitus which often makes going to sleep more difficult in silence. The fact that you can adjust the length of the sunrise in the morning is great too. I found that half an hour was too fast, so 45 minutes worked a lot better for me.
Now, potentially because I am a heavy sleeper, I find the sunrise often doesn't wake me up. When it does, it's great because the wake up is very gentle and gradual. However, when it does not, I am woken up by the back-up alarm.
My main dislike about the clock is that, say on the weekend you don't want to set your alarm, the display stays bright all night. Without manually turning down the display light, then turning it up when you wake up, there's no way to dim it just for the night. If you have the alarm on, it's fine because it goes dark with the sunset. But if not, it is quite bright in the middle of the night.
Other than that though, I am very pleased with the light. Works as a fab alarm as well as a great bedside lamp.
