When it comes to home essentials the bedside alarm clock is up there with a kettle, and like the kettle many versions have been invented from stove top to wi-fi kettles. Holi have turned their attention to pushing advancements in alarm clocks and blended with iconic design.
This smart alarm clock listens and learns. It may sound like something from 2001 Space Odyssey and it might be. Bonjour anticipates your needs and wakes you up according to information it knows about you and voice commands.
Simple commands like "Wake me up tomorrow at 7:15am" will set Bonjour. For those that really want to maximise Bonjour's ability, you can request to be woken up to the song you prefer or hear about the weather forecast. You can even ask to be woken only if it's sunny!
Paired with your home wi-fi Bonjour can also intact with other wi-fi devices. For example, you can ask it to turn on your wi-fi kettle in the morning! Also compatible with Phillips Hue, Nest, IFTTT, Lifx and Neatatmo to control your lights and thermostat. Finally, if you have a home security system it can wake you up if the system catches an intruder.
The Holi Smart Alarm Clock will be available on Kickstater in the near future, expected to command $200.
