Why Waking up is Hard to Do
8 of 10 adults struggle to get out of bed in the morning, and
have problems sleeping at night. Traditional alarm clocks
wake you with a sudden jolt of noise that interrupts your
final stage of sleep, causing a condition known as sleep
latency that makes it hard to get out of bed. The effects of
sleep latency can last all day.
A Better Way to Wake Up Naturally
Your body knows when to go to sleep and when to wake up from
the light/dark signals it receives. Unlike the sudden jolt of
your alarm clock, Daybreak Duo® provides a natural sunrise
that wakes you gradually. Using TrueDawn" technology, the
Daybreak matches the actual light patterns of a natural
Sleep Better Too
Your Daybreak Duo can help you get more from your sleep cycle
in two important ways. First, waking up gradually to sunrise
simulation allows your body to fully complete its final sleep
stage and sets your body clocks sleep timer so that you fall
asleep more easily at bedtime. Second, your Daybreak Duo also
provides sunset simulation, a gradual decrease in light that
tells your body clock to slow down by replicating natures
signal that its time to go to sleep.
Get Up on the Right Side of your Day
Begin every morning with your Daybreak Duo, and see how easy
it is to get going. Research has shown that getting the right
amount of light before you wake can get your body clock
started properly, and help you start your morning refreshed.
Works with Your Existing Bedside Lamp
The Daybreak Duo works with the bed-side lamp you already
have in your bedroom, making it easy to install and use
immediately. You dont need additional accessories, and you
dont have to redecorate!

A Better Sunrise with TrueDawn"
The Daybreak Duo® sunrise/sunset simulator is powered by
TrueDawn technology that matches a natural sunrise. Apollo
engineers measured the light intensity changes that occur
from darkness to full sunrise, so that the Daybreak could
provide the most accurate sunrise simulation possible.
The Natural "S" Curve
It turns out that the light changes during a sunrise are not
"linear" (like a dimmer switch). Instead, light increases
gradually following an "S" curve, also know as a sigmoidal
- Natural Sunrise increases very slowly at first,
allowing a gradual awakening.
- The Daybreak's TrueDawn technology matches
natural sunrise allowing your sleep cycle to finish.
You awaken gradually without sleep latency.
- Alarm clocks disrupt the last stages of sleep,
increasing sleep latency and delaying alertness.
Simulating this "S" curve takes more engineering and expense
to recreate, but the results are worth it. Daybreak Duo helps
you wake up the way nature intended, which improves your
mood, boosts your energy and even helps you sleep better by
setting your cycle properly.
Nothing is more frustrating than fumbling with buttons in the
dark. Daybreaks illuminated touch screen gives you quick,
easy access to all the programmable features so that changes
are a breeze.
To ensure the best visibility, the Daybreak brightens
automatically during the day, then dims the display at night
so as not to disturb your sleep.
