An Introduction to Alarm Clocks

eiodotcom —  July 28, 2012 — 2 Comments

Today’s Eio post is on alarm clocks.

An alarm clock is a clock with a built in alarm designed to wake a person up at a specific time. Alarm clocks serve as reminders to rouse people from their night’s sleep or a short nap. Depending on the clock’s design, the alarm goes off with sound, light, sensors, or buzzers to alert the person of the signal. To stop the alarm, most clocks have some button that needs to be pressed; other clocks automatically stop if left alone fr long enough.

Many modern alarm clocks have built in functions, such as built in FM/AM radios or covert spy cameras. There are also progressive alarm clocks that get louder as each second or minute passes. Most alarm clocks also have functions to snooze, meaning you can hit the button to turn it off, and the alarm will start up again in a designated period of time (such as every five to ten minutes). Alarm clocks can come in both digital form or the traditional model with hands and a face.
