Amplicom Review and Giveaway

There's nothing like the jarring ring of an alarm clock in the morning.  We're all too familiar with that noise of doom telling us it's time to get up and ready for the day.  Now that it's cold outside, we want to stay in our warm and cozy bed more than ever.  It's important to make sure you have an alarm clock that will wake you up on time so you're not late for work or school.



Amplicom offers quality amplified telephones and accessories for a better quality of life.  As we age, our hearing is not what it used to be.  We might have to raise the volume on our TV or phone over time.  This is hard for some to accept, but it's nothing to be embarrassed about. The corded and cordless telephones, along with the amplified alarm clocks are made for those who are hard of hearing and sight impaired. The phone's ring is extra loud and the buttons and display screen are enlarged.  The digital and analogue alarm clocks offer big number displays as well as the option to announce the time.  There's no way your elderly parents or grandparents will miss a phone call or wake-up time now! This is a great way for them to keep on track and keep their independence.  Amplicom products make wonderful presents for the upcoming holidays or any occasion. 

While Amplicom's products are ideal for the elderly, they are not solely targeted for them.  The alarm clocks are perfect for sleep deprived high school and collect students who are trying to establish their independence.  Also, for anyone who has ever slept through their alarm and missed an important flight, meeting, or class.  

My husband has trouble getting out of bed in the morning.  The alarm clock will ring and he will turn it off and go back to sleep.  This is dangerous because he has to get up and get ready for work.  Luckily, I wake up before him and always pester him about getting up.  Sometimes I go to work before he gets up and then he's on his own.  He needs the equivalent of someone blowing a whistle directly in his ear.  Fortunately, an Amplicom alarm clock is the alarm version of that.

He received the TLC 200 Digital Alarm Clock from Amplicom.  The alarm clock includes a chargeable pad that slips under the pillow and vibrates to wake the sleeper up.  It also has an extra loud 90dB ringer, so there's the option to use either the shaker pad, ringer, or both at the same time.  I can't guarantee that the sleeper will be happy about both options at once though!

Wake up! 

The alarm clock is fabulous so far.  I've set it up on my husband's nightstand and he likes how it looks. The large number display is convenient and I like that I can easily see the time from far away.  Since it's black, it easily blends into any decor in your bedroom.  I prefer the digital version rather than the analogue.  A loud voice announces the time and alarm time in 5 selectable languages, depending on what your preference is.  The most convenient feature is the dual alarm time setting, if you and your spouse get up at different times.  There are many other features like selectable ring patterns, wake-up daily, weekdays only, or weekends only, and more.  

The alarm is loud and will wake you up instantly.  You don't have to worry about being late for wherever you're going anymore! My husband's not a fan of the shaker pad, he feels it's a harsh way to wake up in the morning, but others way find it necessary for the wake-up process.  Since he recently received it, he's still figuring out all of the options.  He really is enjoying the clock so far and hopefully will have no more issues with waking up on time in the future.  

The only thing I would change about this alarm clock is including a radio in it.  Most alarm clocks feature a radio, and I was surprised that this one did not feature one.  

If you're looking to revolutionize your wake-up routine in the morning, Amplicom is ready to get you out of bed!

  55. Right now, we only have one alarm clock. This is very inconvenient and annoying when there is a big difference in wake-up times. Another alarm clock would allow me to sleep peacefully until it's my time to get up.
