Ended- Sonic Alert Large Display Dual Alarm Clock with Super Shaker Review and Giveaway


ABOUT SONIC ALERT:

Thirty years ago I began building a light-flashing signal system to help my grandmother. Even when I was a child, my grandmother had very little hearing. By the time I was a teenager, she couldn't hear anything at all. Constantly worried that she would not hear if her loved ones called or visited, she felt isolated and frightened.

Having experimented with electronics since I was seven years old, I was determined to make something to help her. What I first came up with was a system that flashed lights around her home in response to the doorbell, telephone, intercom and fire alarm system. It was remarkable how such a simple device eased so much of the frustration of her daily life. Although that system was perfect for her, it required running wires all over her house and took almost a week to install. I knew that for others to benefit from what I had developed for my grandmother, a wireless, easy-to-install system was needed. Encouraged by my family, I founded Sonic Alert to produce these new systems.

After more than two years of additional research and development, I came up with our first product, the Sonic Alert System, which was unique enough to be awarded a United States Patent. Since that time Sonic Alert has continued to grow and we have expanded our product line to include the many items you will find in this catalog. I hope that our products can help you or your loved ones as much as they helped my grandmother.

REVIEW:
I have had hearing problems since I was a child. I often developed ear aches and at one point they considered giving me a hearing aid. Since then, I have been to dozens of concerts with loud speakers blaring, which probably has not helped. I also discovered from an ENT Doctor that I had an enlarged muscle in my right ear that was causing wax problems due to my earaches as a child. He told me he had never seen anything like it. Needless to say, I often have alarm clock issues. My alarm clock has to be LOUD and it normally startles me awake. 

Let me tell you about some of the features before I tell you about my experience with Sonic Alarm. The Sonic Alarm Large Display Dual Alarm Clock with Super Shaker has 2 different alarm settings. This is great for married couples because you don't have to fumble with the alarm and make noise first thing in the morning to reset it for your spouse! It also has a battery back up to keep your settings in case the power goes out. For me, that is a huge relief. I live in an area with a lot of brown outs and sometimes blackouts. Here are the listed specifications for this alarm clock from Sonic Alert:

Specifications

· Equipped with dual alarm for multiple alarm setting capability
113 db extra-loud alarm (with adjustable tone & volume control)
· SS12V Super Shaker™ bed vibrating unit
· Extra large display 
· 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)
· Dual time (12 / 24 hour)
· One-year Sonic Alert blast-proof warranty

In addition to the dual alarm, I love the large display because my eyes are really bad. I had a wall clock right beside my bed and I still couldn't read the time without my contacts. With this Large Display Dual Alarm Clock I can read the time! You have no idea what a big deal that is for me. I used to have to ask my Husband and he likes to mess with me, so I never knew if he was telling me the right time. Another feature that is amazing is the Super Shaker. The Super Shaker is a vibrating disk that you can place under your pillow or mattress. I placed mine under my mattress. It vibrates just enough to gently wake you up, and it is small enough to where you don't feel it when you lay on top of your mattress.

With the combination of the Super Shaker and the LOUD adjustable alarm tone, I have been able to wake up easily. This system is actually designed to wake the deepest sleepers (me!) gently without startling you awake. It definitely works! You can choose to do just vibration, just alarm tone or a combination of both. All three ways work excellent for me, but I like the combination of both alarm tone and vibration. The alarm tone is so loud that I have it currently set on 3 out of 10! You can also control the tone. This alarm clock is definitely made to be adjusted to your personal preferences and needs. Go to the Sonic Alarm website to watch a video on this alarm clock and see the features in action.  

Sonic Alert also has other products such as amplified telephones, doorbells and amplifiers.
