More suitable as a lamp or loudspeaker but not really as a light alarm clock due to poor alarm function.

The Smart Night Light Alarm Clock by Sparkwav, as the name reveals, is in the first place a lamp and not a real alarm clock. The device offers the function to use the lamp also as an alarm clock, but compared to the light alarm clocks, this alarm clock is only conditionally applicable. The app doesn't always work properly and there aren't that many alarm functions. Also, the alarm tone (sea noise) is very noisy and when you wake up you are easily frightened because the volume is very loud at the beginning. As a table lamp with color play well suitably, and also as loudspeaker function, but not necessarily as alarm clock.
- Very stable
- Good workmanship
- Multifunction device
- Well suited as a loudspeaker and table lamp but not as an alarm clock
- Not intuitive to use
- No further information on how to set the alarm clock exactly
- Sunrise simulation or sleep mode not really noticeable
- Only one alarm tone available (ocean rush), very noisy, not good sound quality
The Smart Night Lamp Speaker by Sparkwav is, in contrast to the other light alarm clocks, primarily a lamp loudspeaker, which can also be used as an alarm clock. The Sparkwav lamp loudspeaker comes in a classic lamp design. The casing is white and the lamp stands on three wooden legs. This lamp appears at first glance very stable and high quality manufactured. On the upper side is a rotary knob, with which one can change the light colours and volume. The supplied mains cable is approx. 1.60 m long. On the underside of the product, there is an on/off button, a USB connection and the connection for the mains cable.
The scope of delivery included:
- Operation instruction
- Power Caple
To use the lamp or the alarm clock, you first have to download the app "iLink" (the iLink app is available for Android and iOS). With this app, the lamp then offers additional operating options such as 3 wake-up times and an automatic sleep timer. When you open the iLink app, you first have to connect it to the device (to do this you have to open the app -> Menu->Bluetooth Connection->L1= connected to the device).
To turn on the lamp, press and hold the on/off button on the bottom for at least 3 seconds. If the colour of the indicator light flashes blue, the operating mode is in Bluetooth Paring mode. If the device is illuminated in blue, your Bluetooth connection is present, if the control light is illuminated in red, the operating mode is in AUX-IN mode.
The lamp offers a variety of colour settings. You can choose between 6 different colour variants and an automatic colour change. With the help of the knob, you can set the desired colour. If you press the rotary knob a little longer, you can also adjust the intensity of the colours or brightness. In addition to the colour setting, you can also play music. You can do this either with a connection cable or via Bluetooth. The sound quality when playing music is very good.
Alarm clock function
The lamp can also be used as an alarm clock. However, there are no exact instructions in the manual on how to set the alarm clock exactly. It is only mentioned once that it is possible. Also at Amazon, there is, unfortunately, no exact information about how the alarm clock works exactly. In the app, you can click on 'Menu' and then on 'Set time'. Then the field appears, where you can set the alarm. There are 3 alarm fields where you can set different times. Further information about volume, colour change etc. are not visible here. Although the alarm clock works at the time set for our test, the sound quality of the alarm tone (only sea noise could be set here?!) was very poor (a lot of noise, no clear sound). Also, you could be a little frightened because the alarm tone was very loud and you could turn it down only shortly afterwards.
In summary, it can be said that this lamp is less suitable as an alarm clock since the alarm function leaves much to be desired. There are no exact instructions on how to use the lamp as an alarm clock and it is not built that intuitive. Also, you can't recognize different alarm tones, at first sight, so you can only use one alarm tone. Unfortunately, there is also nothing about the sunrise or sleep mode settings in the manual, although this is briefly mentioned in the features.
Not to be recommended as a light alarm clock, but if only as a loudspeaker or table lamp.
