by Kurt Knutsson

It’s that time of the year again, that biannual dreadful moment of bewilderment and mild chaos – daylight saving time. Brace yourselves, folks, because that wild hour-long time warp is here again, leaving us all wondering if we’re running late or ahead of schedule. Many of us rely heavily on alarm clocks or apps to make sure we’re not waking up too late. Therefore, here are some recommendations that could be a lot of help to those of you who are sound sleepers.

Echo Show 8

Amazon’s alarm clock smart speaker is perfect for bringing Alexa into the bedroom. You can set alarms and use voice commands to let her know when you want to wake up in the morning.  You can easily customize the sounds and methods, such as a particular song you love to hear first thing in the morning. My favorite feature is the slider switch that shuts the camera and microphone off manually. Some of its features include:

  • Has an 8” HD touchscreen, adaptive color, and stereo speakers
  • You can make video calls with a 13 MP camera that uses auto-framing to keep you centered
  • Glance at your calendars and reminders
  • Manage your smart home – Look in when you’re away with the built-in camera (again, you can close the slider so no one can see too)
  • Watch TV and movies on the device with your streaming subscriptions
  • Turn the display into a digital frame to show your favorite photos using Amazon Photos
  • Built with multiple layers of privacy controls, including a mic/camera off button and a built-in camera shutter

At the time of publishing, this product had over 79,000 global reviews, with 81% giving it 5 stars.

Marty from Indio, California, wrote to me to say this about the Echo show:

It’s a fairly new development for my wife and me… Over the past year ++, I have set a routine on my Echo Show to play sleep sounds from 11 PM to 5:15AM. It is not fool proof, i.e. there are still time when I wake up during the night, but it does help and when I do wake up, I am convinced that it helps us go back to sleep.
