TrueDawn™ Technology—A Better Way to Wake Up
For eons, our bodies have adapted to sunrise and sunset to know when to wake up and when to sleep. In
fact, a master body clock in the brain’s hypothalamus uses these signals to regulate our sleep/wake cycles.
When our sleep/wake cycles are working properly, we gradually fall asleep, and slowly wake up. However,
modern lifestyles force us to alter our sleep/wake cycles and we miss these important cues. We struggle to
wake up and our sleep suffers.
Your body clock regulates this complicated process by cycling through different hormones and signals
that induce sleep or wakefulness. This cycle is a gradual process—which is why you can’t turn sleep off or
on. Alarm clocks disrupt this cycle, making it more difficult to feel awake in the morning or sleep well at
night. Instead of allowing our bodies to cycle through the last stages of sleep to consciousness, our alarm
clocks abruptly jar us awake, interrupting the final stages of sleep. This causes a condition known as
sleep latency and is why you struggle to get out of bed and get going. Sleep latency can last into the day
and hurts your ability to get a restful sleep at night.
TrueDawn™ Technology
Thank you for purchasing the Daybreak™ Duo from Apollo Health®, the Body Clock Experts™. Your
Daybreak is designed using Apollo’s exclusive TrueDawn™ technology, which accurately simulates
a summer sunrise just before you need to wake up. Your sleep cycle ends properly, and you awaken
refreshed and ready to start the day.
Our bodies need signals like light and darkness to know when to be alert or when to go to sleep.
Gradually increasing light—like sunrise—draws us out of sleep like nature intended. This scientific
process, called sunrise simulation, allows your sleep stages to completely cycle, so you awaken
refreshed—without sleep latency.

TrueDawn™ Technology
Just like sunrise, TrueDawn follows a sigmoidal light curve—the right type of increasing intensity—
which signals the body clock without causing premature awakening. Other “dawn simulators” employ
an inexpensive linear ramp-up, which can cause premature awakening and is ineffective at regulating the
body clock. When you use your Daybreak, you’ll awaken much easier than ever before with more energy
to start the day.

feeling refreshed and ready to start the day. TrueDawn synchronizes your sleep/wake cycle—helping you
wake and sleep better.

Setting Up Your Daybreak
Positioning Your Daybreak and Connecting Your Lamp
Your Daybreak is designed to control a connected lamp to provide a precise sunrise simulation, waking
you up naturally. For proper operation of your Daybreak, you need to supply a compatible lamp.
NOTE: Your lamp must plug directly into the Daybreak. Do not plug extension cords or power strips
into the Daybreak lamp socket.
• Use an incandescent or line-voltage halogen lamp only, up to 200W.
1 Place your Daybreak indoors on a flat, sturdy surface away from water.
• DO NOT connect fluorescent lamps, compact fluorescent bulbs, low-voltage halogen lamps, or any
lamp with a transformer or ballast. Doing so will void your Daybreak warranty and may damage your
Daybreak and the lamp.
2 For best results, position your Daybreak so that you can reach the buttons and see the display at eye
level while lying down in bed.
• Touch-activated lamps are not compatible with the Daybreak and will not operate properly when
connected.
4 Plug your lamp into the socket on the back of the Daybreak.
• 3-way lamps can be connected to the Daybreak, but you should verify that the lamp remains switched
on to the highest intensity setting to ensure proper operation with the Daybreak.
Choosing a Light Bulb for Your Lamp
3 Connect the AC power cord to the Daybreak and then plug the cord into a wall power outlet.
Setting Your Daybreak
Choosing a Lamp
5 Switch on your lamp. Then, press the LAMP button on the Daybreak to confirm that your lamp
is switched on properly. By pressing LAMP repeatedly, you should be able to cycle through three
intensity settings and the off position. If your lamp does not turn on, disconnect the lamp from the
Daybreak and plug it in directly to a power outlet to determine if it is functioning properly.
• For best results, use a 100W incandescent bulb in a lamp that will light up the entire room. If you
find that you awaken too early, you can try a lower wattage bulb.
• Special blue-enhanced light bulbs are ideal for sunrise simulation. These bulbs have neodymium added
to the glass to enhance the color. They are more expensive, but generally last longer than standard
incandescent bulbs. However, if you don’t have a neodymium bulb, a standard one will work fine.

FAQ
Changing Faceplates
Your Daybreak has a removable faceplate that surrounds the display and SNOOZE/NAP
button. To allow you to customize the look of your Daybreak to match your tastes and decor,
additional faceplates in a variety of colors and finishes are available from Apollo Health. Visit www.
ApolloHealth.com for more information.
• To remove your faceplate, lift and pull the bottom section of the faceplate out and away from the
front of the Daybreak. Then, lift the faceplate up until it is removed completely.
• To replace the faceplate, put the top end in place first, then grasp the bottom of the faceplate and pull
down until it locks in place.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know the right sunrise duration for me?
Your Daybreak is factory-set for a 30 minute sunrise, but you can change the duration in 15-minute increments
from 15 to 120 minutes. Your correct sunrise duration depends on your lamp brightness and the latitude at
which you live. It may take some trial and error to find your ideal setting. Here is some information to help:
• Ideally, you want to awaken about 5 to 15 minutes before you have to get out of bed. You should
linger in bed for a while, as if you were on vacation or enjoying a weekend. This step is important in
helping your body transition from sleep to wake time, and one of the reasons why it is so disturbing
to wake up to a blaring alarm that forces you to jump out of bed.
• The closer you are to the poles, the more your body will be accustomed to a longer sunrise. For
example, at the equator a natural sunrise occurs in about fifteen minutes, but an Alaskan/Canadian
sunrise can last up to two hours. Try to match what your body is already accustomed to.
• A longer sunrise is generally more effective at resetting your circadian rhythm and starting your
wake cycles.
• If you find yourself awakening too early, use a lamp that is less bright, shorten your sunrise duration,
and/or set your wake time a few minutes later to compensate.

FAQ
FAQ
What should I do if the light doesn’t wake me up?
Should I use a special type of incandescent bulb with my Daybreak?
When you first start using the Daybreak, consider using the backup alarm or radio as part of your wake
mode settings. Be sure you are using a lamp that provides sufficient brightness to light up your entire room.
Also, many people find that increasing the duration of the sunrise helps them wake up at the right time.
You can buy blue-enhanced light bulbs that have neodymium added to the glass. These bulbs can be quite
expensive, but are generally higher quality (longer-lasting) and do a better job of color rendering. The
color difference between a standard bulb and a blue-enhanced bulb may have an effect on your results,
but studies have not been done to prove this. Most dawn simulation studies that have been done with
household lamps used 100W standard bulbs. You should consider using a neodymium bulb with your
Daybreak.
What type of lamp should I use?
You should use a lamp that provides enough brightness and diffusion to light up your whole room.
Reading lamps or other focused lamps tend to light up one spot only, and you may be facing away from
that spot at the time when your body needs to start waking up.
What bulb wattage is best?
Your room layout and lamp shade can affect the amount of light that reaches you while in bed, but on
average, a 100W bulb will provide the best results with dawn simulation.
24
Why can’t I use fluorescent lamps with the Daybreak?
Most fluorescent lamps are not dimmable because of limitations in the electronic circuitry that powers
them. While some specialized fluorescent lamps are dimmable, they cannot be used simulate a sunrise
accurately because their lowest intensity is about 20% of full power. An effective sunrise simulation starts
from nearly imperceptible levels of light and then slowly ramps up. This scenario is impossible with
current fluorescent technology.
