Product information

p>If you’re not really a morning person, Lumie Bodyclock Starter is just what you need. It’s an alarm clock that wakes you with a gradually brightening 30-minute sunrise so when you open your eyes you feel awake and refreshed. Waking up like this helps to regulate your sleep/wake cycle and has even been shown to boost mood, energy and productivity levels for the rest of the day.

As well as the wake-up sunrise, it also has a 30 minute sunset that works in the opposite way, helping you to naturally wind down ready for bed. There’s a snooze feature and an optional alarm beep, which most people turn off after a few days, preferring to wake up to the light on its own. It can also be used as a dimmable bedside light.

A wake-up light like Bodyclock Starter is not only a much nicer way to start the day – especially on dark, winter mornings - it can help beat the winter blues and is a useful complement to a lightbox in treating SAD (seasonal affective disorder).

Warning: Please note that this item is not suitable for use with CFL type energy saving bulbs.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Absolutely love this. Never fails to wake us up in a nice soft lovely way. The best bit is the sunset, it really helps us wind down before going to bed. The light is a lovely warm glow. It's a little bit annoying to set it up though, you have to make sure you set it every single night to wake you in the morning. 10 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my new wake up! We used our new alarm for the first time this morning and I have to say it was so much nicer to wake slowly to the light rather than my previous loud alarm clock. I set for 7 but the light cam on quite a bit before so we were awake by 6:45. We are going to try setting for 7:15 tomorrow and see how that is instead. I would recommend this product for anyone that prefers a slow wake up rather than the shock of the alarm! 09 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Impulse purchase I have had this light about a week and every day has ended in failure to programme the alarm system satisfactorily - - - if 'wake up' works correctly with the light brightening as it should then the unwanted beeping alarm comes on and can't be turned off without switching off at the mains. The instruction booklet seems to have been written by someone schooled in writing instructions for Japanese cameras in the 1970's. Having destroyed the packaging I cannot return the Lumie so will write the purchase off to experience, a pity since the idea is a good one but deserving of a better product. 18 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not working as promised by product information Instructions looked easy, but it has been very difficult to put in the right settings.Will be taking back to have not been able to use it. 16 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gentle light to wake to It was easy to set up and I use it as sunrise not sunsets. The light is bright enough to read by. Very pleased with its simple design too. 16 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great item great bedside light with useful dimmer switch, very pleased with this product 28 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly Recommend... I was rather sceptical when I bought this but really struggled with dark winter mornings so was happy to give anything a go! Its a really neat looking unit, easy to set up (if you read the instructions) and has a pleasant glow about it when its fully illuminated. We placed it on the beside cabinet and have it set for 7am so it comes on gradually from 6.45 and goes off automatically about 7.30 ish. You have to remember to touch the main middle button once as you go to bed otherwise it won't come on in the morning. We haven't used the sound option (as we have a digital clock radio) but its a function if you require it. Those mornings we have forgotten to put it on we've overslept so it really does its job and we definitely can feel the benefit. John Lewis Click and Collect is also an excellent, straightforward, easy-peasy way to order one! 29 October 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by helps on dark mornings Purchased for my daughter who was struggling to get up on dark mornings. She says it has really helped, gradually waking her (and her husband!) up. They also like the dusk light, gradually turning itself off when they go to bed. Would have had 5* but the light turns itself off 15 mins after reaching full brightness. So you either have to make sure you are up or have switched another light on, if you doze there is a real danger of going back to sleep! (My own experience fro an older version that does the same.) 21 January 2013
