The DawnLite is a natural alarm clock that works as a dawn simulator. It helps your body to wake up naturally leaving you feeling refreshed and energised, ready to face the day. It has a sunset function so that when you go to bed you can set the light to fade down gradually to darkness, allowing you to relax and fall gently to sleep. With a DawnLite you will not need another bedside light as it works perfectly as a reading light. Please note that it is important not to touch the halogen bulb with your bare hands as sweat can cause the bulb to burn out more quickly. Power failure battery and spare bulb included.

 

 

 

Editor reviews

I have suffered badly from seasonal affective disorder (SAD) for around 10 years as a secondary illness to chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). Over the years I have found many effective ways to combat SAD and help me through the winter months and the Dawnlite Natural Alarm Clock is one of these. For those suffering from SAD others include - bright light therapy, vitamin D3 supplements, negative air ionization....and simply getting out in the available sun as much as possible.

Back to the Dawnlite. It has a great range of features including the ability to set the length of time it takes the light to reach maximum intensity, which is certainly sufficiently bright enough to wake most people. I prefer to use the longest duration setting of 90 minutes for dawn simulation. I find myself starting to come around at about 60 minutes into this cycle.

This dawn simulator lamp also works well as a bedside clock with an easily readable display and also as a bedside lamp. The inclusion of a battery backup facility is excellent and sets this apart as a quality product.

The Dawnlite looks slightly unusual with its bulbous "lamp on a stalk" design but won't look too out of place in most modern bedrooms.

It's unlikely that any dawn simulator will cure full-blown SAD alone but as part of a broader treatment program they can certainly help and I'd rate this model highly. For those with milder forms of "winter blues" it may be just the thing to help you get out of bed during the dark winter mornings.
