ever since i started sleeping with my husband (yes, actual sleeping) i've noticed one thing. he sleeps the sleep of the dead.
that's right- atomic bomb? ::snore::
really effing annoying alarm clock? ::snore::
my screaming? ::snore::
and most recently, baby crying? ::SNORE::
yeah- how someone can sleep through the shrill sounds of both an alarm clock & a screaming 7 month old is beyond me- but he can.
so when Sonic Alert contacted me & asked if i'd like to review one of the their alarm clocks i said "heck yes!"
so i took a look at their site & the first thing i noticed was that their alarm clocks include a vibrating bed shaker. what is that you ask?
well, by plugging in the bed shaker & placing it underneath your mattress, not only will the alarm go off @ 4 am but your bed will also start to vibrate. that's right- you might be able to ignore the alarm but can you really ignore the bed vibrating? me thinks not.
so we tried it out- i picked this alarm clock:
because it has dual alarms and i get up before the hubs (ie: one can go off at 4am & one can go off at 6am- your choice)
and set it up.
well when it went off the next morning at 4am the hubs couldn't ignore it. he turned it off and promptly glared at me. SUCCESS!
BUT- what's also really cool is that you can turn the actual alarm off & just have the bed shaker go off instead. i think this is a fab idea for co-sleeping & bed sharing parents.
while the alarm is loud & obnoxious (like it's supposed to be) and will probably wake up Jr. the bed shaker isn't. it's an obvious vibration that will wake you up- but it's not disruptive.
alex sleeps in our bed some mornings & she didn't even open her eyes when the bed shaker went off!
it really is an awesome alarm clock. and because it's so loud, it's great for those that are hard of hearing...and teenagers. heh.
and there are tons of clock options- here's a few:
