Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The problem is that the Alexa portion of the device doesn't work most of the time!! I found that if I would unplug the power and reset it, it responded to the wake word of Alexa - for awhile. Most of the time after speaking the Alexa wake word, it would just sit and blink multicolor lights at me and then time out. I have an Amazon Dot sitting on the same nightstand and it responds every time I speak its wake word so I know it's not a 'ME' problem!!
I did call iHome customer service and the gal was very helpful and stated it's a known problem and that they're working on it. My device did have the latest and greatest firmware version but to no avail!!
As I stated, I really wanted this device to perform as advertised and hope they iron out the bugs - in the meantime I've ordered a Vobot clock and hope it fulfills my daily waking needs and although I'll have to reach over and touch it to make Alexa wake up (Reach out and TOUCH - how 1970's!!) at least I can command my smart world again!!
I think it's just not ready for prime time right now.
Sadly, this unit is clunky and, in my opinion, still in the developing phase. Alexa's voice defaults back to the highest volume each and every day no matter where you set the volume. Additionally, if you set up a reoccurring weekly alarm to your favorite music, it renders the snooze button useless. The snooze button only works if you use the iHome default alarm sounds. This unit could be so cool--but there is still work to be done. I'm holding out hope that system upgrades will be done to better the unit I have--since it is not cheap.
The clock face and buttons on top of the clock are lighted. When reducing the brightness of the clock face the buttons on top of the clock are not reduced to the same brightness. The top buttons cast a blue glow on the ceiling above the bed. A bedside clock should not cast unneeded light in the bedroom.
The clock face brightness has seven adjustable dim levels. The lowest level is so dim it is difficult to see in a dark room, it certainly can't be seen when the sun comes up. The next level up is too bright during the night. It casts a blue light across my bed. My 30 year old digital clock has the proper brightness at night and can also be seen during daylight hours.
The sound volume is also flawed. The Alexa voice volume can be set by pressing the buttons on top of the clock. The alarm volume can be set in the iHome app. For my room I set the Alexa voice volume to a low level. I set the alarm volume to a higher level. This worked fine until the alarm goes off. Triggering the alarm changes the Alexa voice volume to the alarm volume. Now Alexa is yelling at me.
The numbers have odd shapes. For example, the number 5 looks like the letter S.
I returned the clock for a refund.
Things to improve on:
Can only use iHeartRadio or Spotify as alarm music (the built in alarm tones are awful - but that’s not why you get this). Would be nice if you could use tunein as an alarm also, or the new Alexa set music alarm feature.
I know and accept that this is a US device, but it would be good if Canadian post codes would work (for weather display), or Canadian iHeartRadio (its locked to the US iHeartRadio, so you can only get US stations).
Everything else works great, streaming music (not as an alarm), smart home control (although the new Alexa centric room control is not included, where you can say “turn off the light” and Alexa knows what room she is included in), minor really, just have to say “turn off the bedroom light” instead.
If you could use other services than iHeartRadio (or your local iHeartRadio), or Spotify (hint tunein!) this would be 5 stars.
It makes the nightstand cluttered too having to have a USB cord to charge his iPhone. The old one has a docking station and he simply plugs his iPhone into it.
It dropped the Bluetooth connection for some reason and had to tell about it.
No radio either.
(Do you really want those lights on the bottom? I hope they are not charging much for that feature.)
