Smart alarm clocks suffer from a serious flaw

All the devices around us have become smart devices, and this change has affected alarm clocks and most home appliances. Smart alarm clocks may have invaded the bedrooms of millions of users. Above all, its elegant shape and average price.

Smart Alerts has a lot of great features. This includes the ability to remotely set an alarm based on sound alone, wake up your favorite Spotify playlist, and, in some versions, the ability to track sleep.

And since they are essentially smart devices, they allow you to control other smart devices in your home and also support a bright light that turns on instead of sound when you leave.

In addition, some versions have a touch screen and others have a camera. But given all these advantages, the smart alarm has a very significant drawback ... the lack of spare batteries.

This only means that in the event of a power outage, the alarm will not first wake up its owner, but will plunge into a dream and miss all appointments.

This is the general situation for most alarms, including the Amazon Echo Dot, Amazon does not advertise this device as an alarm, but it has an alarm function, but also no longer has a battery backup.

Lenovo's Smart Clock 2 also has the same problem. It is a unique device with night light function and touch screen. It also enables wireless charging of smartphones right on top of it. However, it is not equipped with a backup battery.

Google's Nest Hub has the same situation. Based on the single radar function, it supports sleep tracking and user actions tracking, but you can expect problems with, yes, low battery.

For many people around the world, missing an alarm isn't a big deal. But for some people who lead busy lives or take on too much responsibility, it's true. Firefighters, paramedics, and others are an example of this.

But there are smart alarms that support batteries. While these are more traditional AA batteries than lithium-ion batteries, they do. However, these devices do not come from leading companies such as Google, Lenovo or Amazon. Examples of such products are the iHome alarm clock and the Loftie alarm clock.

Ironically, some devices that are not used as alarm clocks actually contain batteries, such as the Google Portal Go smart display. So far, most large corporate smart alarms don't have an obvious reason not to have a battery.
