I don’t know about you, but I am not a morning person and I hate waking up. That’s true whether I get a full night of rest, a little extra rest, or barely any rest. It doesn’t matter, mornings are not fun. With so much smart tech out there, there must be something that helps you stay in bed longer.
The Reason ONE smart alarm clock may offer just that, so long as you have a bunch of other, compatible devices.
What Is the Reason ONE Smart Alarm Clock?
Thanks to Alexa, Reason ONE can interact with other smart home devices.
Reason ONE is a smart alarm clock, which is exactly what it sounds like. You can control the clock remotely using a mobile app, and with it, you can playback a variety of media including music, audiobooks, podcasts and more. But what truly makes the clock worthwhile, is that it includes Amazon’s Alexa voice-assistant built-in. Essentially, that means you can control the clock — and a multitude of other devices — using voice commands.
As is true with any Alexa-powered device, you gain access to everything Amazon’s smart assistant can do — if you own any of the company’s Echo products you should already be familiar. Alexa can tell you the weather, share jokes, call out news alerts, add groceries or items to your shopping list, and even interact with other smart home tech. You can tell Alexa to turn on the lights in another room, for example.
The smart home support is where the idea of never leaving your bed comes from. If your house is equipped with compatible smart tech, then you could just tell Alexa to do everything for you without ever peeling back the covers. Imagine turning on your coffee pot from the bedroom?
Of course, it acts as a regular ol’ clock too when you need to set an alarm or tell the time.
Everything you can do with Alexa’s help you can do from Reason One.
Here are some of Reason ONE’s important specs:
- Clock face adjusts brightness based on ambient lighting
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz connectivity
- Supports Amazon Music, Audible, Deezer, Gimme Radio, iHeartRadio, Pandora, SiriusXM and TuneIn
- micro-USB charging port with USB power adapter
Where Can I Get One?
It’s an alarm clock and Alexa-powered smart speaker all-in-one.
Reason ONE is available through the official store for just $20. That’s a great deal for any alarm clock, let alone one that’s packed to the brim with smart home features. Furthermore, the mobile companion app is free and there are no related subscriptions to pay for. Just grab the Reason One, sync everything up, and go!
That’s a ridiculously small price to pay for a lot more time in bed, at least I think so!
