What is an alarm clock for the hard of hearing?
If you suffer from hearing loss to any degree, you will find a normal alarm clock difficult to hear. However, with our alarm clocks, you will always be able to hear your wake-up call clearly. This is all thanks to the designs provided by our manufactures, some of which include: Sonic Alert and Bellman and Symfon.
What types of alarm clocks do we provide?
Analogue: The traditional design for the alarm clock dating back to the 1500’s, they are composed of a series of gears and produce a stereotypical ticking noise.
Digital: The next generation of alarm clocks uses computers and electricity to display the time, they can usually be customised with colour and the type of alarm sound they play.
How does an analogue alarm clock work?
When you look inside an analogue alarm clock you will see several gears. Nowadays they are powered by a battery, however in the past they could be powered via a windup device. To keep the time constant, they use a balance wheel in an oscillating system. This moves the gears depending on its cycle, this type of clock provides several advantages such as –
Low Risk of a power outage : If you keep the batteries fresh, or the clock wound up, the risk of a power outage is severely reduced.
Long Lifespan : As long as it is well maintained. The analogue clock can last longer than any other type of alarm clock on the market.
How does a digital alarm clock work?
The digital clock relies on electronics. Unlike the analogue clock, there are no gears and the oscillating wheel has been replaced by a crystal. Once an electric charge passes through, it will change shape slightly, this causes a light ticking noise similar to the analogue clock. The advantages of a digital alarm clock are –
Accuracy : A digital alarm clock is considered to be more accurate than an analogue clock.
Readability : The display on the digital clock is larger, making it easier to read than an analogue clock. This is extremely useful for older individuals, who may struggle with traditional clocks.
Customisation : Digital alarm clocks allow you to change its alarm tone or display colour.
