What bedside clock do you use? I couldn't find one like I wanted, so I think I'll make my own. Wishlist:
* OLED screen for illumination.
* Always-on so I can see it in dark.
* Light sensor so faint in dark, bright in day.
* Weather forecast.
* Octagonal so I can lay on side.
I call it the "do not be alarmed" clock. I also want it to have a beeper and LED so it can wake me up by rising light instead of sound.
@stavros I use this: https://bellman.com/en/product-support/stand-alone-products/alarm-clock-classic/
Compared to my previous alarm clock, this is way more advanced.
(Previous one was https://teltex.com/bellman-visit-alarm-clock-receiver/ and was an outright PITA. Also had to screw open the case to blacken the LED light with a marker because it was WAY TOO BRIGHT!)
@trinsec Do you like your current one? Seems pretty featureful.
@stavros It's pretty decent. I only expected a bit more of a 'flash' from the lights, like the previous one had. But eh, I can live with that. Sound is turned off because I have absolutely no use for it, naturally. Configuring time and alarm time is easy with those dials. And the vibrator is strong enough to wake me up. There is a slight red glow on the back (there's a button on the back to turn alarm on/off) when the alarm is on, but not so bright that it bothers me.whacking the button on top is snooze and/or light up the screen so you can check time easily. And the neat part is that it's got a built in accu, so a power outage doesn't really affect it. ;)
@stavros Oh, and I have a full system here with flashing lights, doorbell alarm, etc. This alarm clock is part of this li'l network. ;) So it does more than just waking me up.
