As adults living in the modern age, we depend on our alarm clocks. Mostly, they make sure we get to work on time. We couldn’t live productive lives without them. So you want a quality alarm clock on your bedside and if your clock serves multiple functions, that’s even better. Compare this iHome to the features offered in our Gear4 Renew Sleepclock review to determine which alarm clock is best for you.
iHome’s iAVS16 Alarm Clock With Alexa Built-In is a device that will do much more than just wake you up in the morning. It has Amazon’s Alexa built right in, which means that it is always getting smarter. But don’t worry, you can mute Alexa for privacy when you need it too. Amazon Alexa Voice Service with Far Field voice capability lets you play music, audiobooks, and more, all with the power of your voice.
You will be able to control your smart home devices, check the weather forecast, news, traffic and more. All from your alarm clock. When was the last time you saw a clock that is this capable? But that’s not all it can do. You can also look forward to the Alexa Calling and Messaging feature, which will be added in the near future via a free firmware upgrade.
The iAVS16 has more tricks up its sleeve. Other features include a speakerphone, Bluetooth, and smart buttons that will control music, smart plugs, and more with just one press. Its also Wi-Fi enabled so you can enjoy Wi-Fi audio from Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Amazon Music, and others.
The dimmable high-contrast display means that you can see your info under any lighting conditions. The alarm time shows on the screen so that you always know if it’s set. The digital display is large and has adjustable brightness levels. It even features an outside temperature display provided by Accuweather.
Another nice feature is the built-in accent lighting on the bottom of the cabinet that offers sleep and wake mood lighting. The iAVS16 makes your old alarm clock look plain lazy.
We also love the sleek and modern design. That accent lighting is going to look so cool in your room. This a be the best alarm clock out there right now.
