Sonic Alarm Clock -- Review & Giveaway -- Ends 9/14/11


Mike works hard. Very hard. He's out in the field almost daily and when he goes to sleep -- he sleeps hard, too!

Then again, he spent some time in the Navy on an Aircraft Carrier, and he learned to sleep whenever and wherever he could!

I can't wake him up. Once Mike is down, he's out, and it's almost impossible to rouse him.

I heard about the Sonic Alarm Clock from a Facebook friend and I immediately checked it out.

As soon as I saw the YouTube video -- I knew I had to have it!

Sonic Alarm has so many amazing products for the Hearing-Impaired and the hard to awaken. It was difficult to choose from among them.

I finally decided on an analog as opposed to digital. My own preference -- I'm just old fashioned about clock and watch faces.


I loved the fabulous style of the Analog with Super Shaker™ - SBA475ss.

For those who prefer a bit more traditional clock and an easy-set dial, we offer the SBA475ss analog alarm. There’s no confusion when dialing in the clock time or your wake up time. It also features a night-light that can illuminate your surroundings with two different brightness levels, or be switched off. It is esthetically-pleasing and streamlined, and it has all the power needed to wake you up in the morning!

Sleep well knowing you’ll wake up on time.

Specifications:
· 113 db extra-loud alarm (with adjustable tone and volume control)
· SS12VW Super Shaker™ bed vibrating unit
· Sharp blue backlight flashes when alarm rings also functions as a convenient night light with an on/off switch
· Hi / low dimmer switch
· 9V battery backup, maintains time and alarm setting in the event of power failure (battery not included)
· Dual power capability – 110 / 220 volts (requires optional transformer)
· One-year Sonic Alert blast-proof warranty


The cobalt blue night-light that illuminates the dial is actually quite soothing. We have it on dim and it gives off such a nice glow. I like the way it keeps me from tripping all over myself in the middle of the night!

The Alarm. OH. MY. GOSH. To say that it is loud is an understatement.

We first tried out the alarm in the daytime and it seemed a bit loud but I didn't think too much about it. In the middle of the night -- it sounds like The WHO are holding a concert right in your bedroom! Between the wail of the siren and the flashing lights... I kept waiting for Pete Townsend to break into a guitar solo! ;D

I wasn't finished, tho... I had a surprise! Under his side of the mattress was... the Super Shaker™ Bed Vibrator!


This Super Shaker Bed Vibrating unit is placed under a pillow or between a mattress and box springs. The powerful vibrations are guaranteed to wake up extremely heavy sleepers. A built-in temperature sensor protects the unit against overheating. The Super Shaker SS12VW Bed Vibrating unit is designed to be plugged into the vibrator outlet on the back of the Sonic BoomTM Alarm Clock.
Includes our one-year Sonic Alert blast-proof warranty.


Needless to say, Mike woke up -- ON TIME! I think he was too unglued to hit the snooze button! (I'm not too sure he'll recover from the experience anytime soon, either!)

It works. Trust me, this alarm is absolutely amazing. It does everything it's supposed to do! I love it.

See for yourself:

I would love to get this phone for my husband's mamaw. She lives alone way out in the country. She's getting older now and I worry about her. We will be moving out there in two years, well on the land beside her, but until then it would be nice to have this peace of mind.
