Thirty years ago I began building a light-flashing signal system to help my grandmother. Even when I was a child, my grandmother had very little hearing. By the time I was a teenager, she couldn't hear anything at all. Constantly worried that she would not hear if her loved ones called or visited, she felt isolated and frightened.
Having experimented with electronics since I was seven years old, I was determined to make something to help her. What I first came up with was a system that flashed lights around her home in response to the doorbell, telephone, intercom and fire alarm system. It was remarkable how such a simple device eased so much of the frustration of her daily life. Although that system was perfect for her, it required running wires all over her house and took almost a week to install. I knew that for others to benefit from what I had developed for my grandmother, a wireless, easy-to-install system was needed. Encouraged by my family, I founded Sonic Alert to produce these new systems.
After more than two years of additional research and development, I came up with our first product, the Sonic Alert System, which was unique enough to be awarded a United States Patent. Since that time Sonic Alert has continued to grow and we have expanded our product line to include the many items you will find in this catalog. I hope that our products can help you or your loved ones as much as they helped my grandmother.
I don't know about you, but I have the WORST time getting out of bed in the morning! I literally hit my snooze button for an hour and even than am dragging myself out of bed! Thankfully, Sonic Alert provided me with the super adorable Sweetheart Alarm Clock! For those delicate young ladies we proudly offer the Sweetheart Alarm. With its hot-pink heart shape and multi colored display, it’s a girl’s decoration as well as an alarm clock. But, don’t let the looks fool you . . . an extra-loud alarm and bed vibrating unit will get her out of bed and straighten even Hannah Montana’s pony-tails!
· 113 db extra-loud alarm (with adjustable tone & volume control)
· SS12V Super Shaker™ bed vibrating unit
· Built-in red flashing alert lights
· Hi / low dimmer switch
· 9V battery backup, maintains time and alarm setting in the event of power failure (battery not included)
· Dual power capability – 110 / 220 volts (requires optional transformer)
· One-year Sonic Alert blast-proof warranty
Let me tell you... this alarm works! The first few days made me jump right out of bed in a split second and I didn't even want to lay down! Now that I've gotten used to it, I'm not as jumpy, but still get up the first time it goes off. On a really really bad day I may hit the snooze once. It's like an all new me!
