ROCAM Projection Digital Alarm Clock on Ceiling Wall

by ROCAM

This is the cheapest clock that we found with an easy-to-read display and an adjustable projection angle. It's easy to use, and although the projection angle isn't the widest, it's easy enough to see from across the bed.

This digital clock projector for bedrooms is easy to set up, and works well within the limitations inherent in its form factor. The alarm clock for bedroom projects the time on the ceiling, and can be operated via its function buttons or by voice controls. It has 120 minutes of memory, and can be programmed for daylight savings time. In our tests, the alarm was loud enough to wake a sleeper, and projecting the time on the ceiling is easier than trying to read an analog clock at eye level. The alarm clock for bedroom includes a USB port, which worked as intended, and also has an audio port (headphone jack) that works when plugged into the projector. It is worth mentioning, however, that we used a male-to-male dongle to connect the audio port to the projector, rather than the official accessory which had a 3.5mm jack. This connector is not common, and may be more difficult to locate. The alarm clock for bedroom's projection screen is rather small, and is not ideal for reviewing photos. Because of its small screen, the projector will also not project video, and we found its brightness to be insufficient for video. The alarm clock for bedroom is much better suited to reading a paperback novel or newspaper. We liked that the clock included a USB charger port, which worked well, and that it was capable of displaying either 12 or 24-hour time format. The alarm clock for bedroom's audio was not loud enough to wake a sleeper, but we were able to set it loud enough to drown out noise elsewhere in the bedroom. The alarm clock for bedroom is a nice option for a light sleeper, but would be better for heavier sleepers or for children.

The DR.PREPARE Projection Alarm Clock is not your ordinary alarm clock. It projects high quality digits onto a wall or ceiling, providing a clear view of time, outdoor temperature, and indoor humidity. It also has a 4-level brightness setting, including high, medium, low, and off, and you can customize the brightness of the display with the remote sensor, making it perfect for use in different light conditions. As such, this alarm clock is perfect for both day and night use, whether you're waking up or winding down for the night. It connects to wireless remote sensors that track temperature and relative humidity in your living area, so you won't be overly surprised about a sudden drop in temperature or a sudden rise in humidity when you're enjoying a relaxing night. Dr. Prepare offers a large LCD screen that displays the time, temperature, and humidity, and the numbers are large enough for easy viewing. However, it's not as bright and colorful as we'd like, and the high setting doesn't go all the way up to the screen edge, so at higher brightness levels, you'll be able to see some of the numbers obscured. The battery lasted 2 hours in our tests and is comparable to other alarm clocks we've tested. However, it's not rechargeable, so you'll need to find or purchase a backup battery. At $55, the DR.PREPARE Projection Alarm Clock is a decent alarm clock with unique features and a built-in wireless remote sensor.

Mesqool Projection Digital Alarm Clock for Ceiling,Wall,Bedroom

by Mesqool

Clean, modern design. Dark screen with white clock. Good AM reception. 7” numbers make it visible from a distance.

Featuring a bright 350° projection that can fill a large space, the Projection Digital Alarm Clock is the best-rated projector alarm clock in our lineup. It shines bright enough for any content, even well-lit shows and sports, and provides good color and contrast. It's also the hands-down best projection alarm clock for sleepers at 5 a.m. or any time, thanks to its loud dual alarm (one at nap time, the other at wake up time), and the Projection Digital Alarm Clock's ability to fit a 7€ TV-mode clock face, or a 9€ clock face when used as a bedside clock. It also includes a USB charger, so you can charge your smartphone, tablet, or other devices while using the projector clock's speaker. The Projection Digital Alarm Clock's display is easy to see from across the room, whether you use the projector or the clock face. The only real drawback is that it makes a lot of noise, even by projector standards.

EVILTO Projection Alarm Clock for Bedroom Ceiling Digital Alarm Clock Radio with USB Charger Ports

by EVILTO

Projection alarm clock is great at waking you up, and it's especially nice that the alarm wakes you up softly so you don't wake up your significant other. Its projection function is its biggest draw, but its sound quality's a close second.

The EVILTO Projection Alarm Clock is the best alarm clock for projection in our lineup. Its combination of size, function, and setup is hard to beat, and it's the only alarm clock on our list that can be used as both a projector and a speaker. It is a little heavier than some alarm clocks, and a little bit bigger, but we think the added weight is worth it. The 10-inch screen is bright enough to read, and the larger projection area improves readability. It's also one of the only alarm clocks that projects onto a ceiling, so it doesn't block other light sources. The built-in speaker is surprisingly good, and the volume of alarm clock is loud enough to wake you up. That might sound like a con, but we just think it's nice to have. The projection range is impressive, though. You can project an image 18 feet back, which is good enough for most rooms. The clock also boasts an SD card slot, multiple alarm settings, a dimmer switch, a USB port, and an AC adapter. We particularly like that the knob for adjusting the brightness of the projection screen has a zoom function.

Projection Alarm Clock for Bedroom, Large 7.4” LED Display Ceiling Digital Radio Alarm Clock with USB Charger and Dual Alarm, 3 Dimmer Thermometer Temperature Monitor for Kid Elderly Heavy Sleeper

SUNJOYCO Projection Alarm Clock for Bedroom

by SUNJOYCO

The alarm clock has an extra-large LED display, three brightness settings, and built-in USB charger. The dual alarms and snooze function are appreciated by heavy sleepers. And the large, angled projection allows you to read the time without getting up.

If you're tired of waking up to the voice of your traditional alarm clock, you definitely need to consider this one. The design is simplistic, but it's much more functional. The clock is large, bright, and easy to read, and the automatic brightness adjustment means you don't have to worry about it being too bright or too dim. The bonus is the dual alarms, which could use a little more volume, but it's something to consider if you're a little hard of hearing. The projection alarm clock also has multiple USB charging ports, making it easy to charge devices while you sleep. The biggest drawback is that it's a digital clock, so you can't set multiple alarms.

Hanaix Projection Digital Alarm Clock for Bedrooms

by Hanaix

Made of metal and plastic, this alarm clock is the only thing you'll regret buying because it goes way beyond your expectations.

The Projection Digital Alarm Clock was one of the easiest alarm clocks to set up in recent memory. I plugged it into an outlet in the kitchen, connected it to my Alexa, and told the device to connect to Wi-Fi. The alarm clock automatically downloaded the update to my Alexa, and I was able to easily add two alarms to the device, just as I could with my original Echo. I also liked that I could connect the device to Alexa to control it. when I heard the alarm, Alexa was able to adjust the volume so that it was loud enough to wake me, without waking my kids. On the motion sensor, the device was able to detect that I was getting up and turn off the alarm. Projection was surprisingly good, too. The clock's simple design (a black clock face with two large red numbers) meant that it was unobtrusive and easy to read across the room. Projection was clear, even in the dimmest of rooms. In daylight, the clock was almost unreadable, but in dimmer light, the time was crisply projected on to the wall. By night, the time was easy to read. The clock also had two USB ports, so it's not a one-trick pony. With the clocks built-in USB port, I can charge my phone while waking up, which comes in handy when I'm running the marathon of our everyday lives.

DR.PREPARE Projection Alarm Clock, Digital Clock Projector on Ceiling with Indoor/Outdoor Temperature Display, Dual Alarms, WWVB, Colored Backlight, Weather Forecast, and Battery Backup for Bedroom

DR.PREPARE Projection Alarm Clock

by DR.PREPARE

With its fancy projector screen and weather forecast display, this digital alarm clock is also a nice conversation piece. The dual alarm function provides flexibility while the rechargeable battery offers peace of mind.

The first thing you'll notice about the Dr. Prepare Projection Alarm Clock is how bright it is. Unlike most of the other clocks we tested, its back panel is white, not black, which helps it diffuse projected light. This increases visibility in dark rooms, and it also makes it easier on the eyes as it reduces the glow emitted by the projection. The Projection Alarm Clock has dual alarms, which can be set independently. The snooze feature also has separate switches on the back, making it much more intuitive and easier to use than the snooze/light button on the most models we tested. Overall, the Projection Alarm Clock has great image quality, and it comes with a remote control that makes it easy to adjust the brightness and volume. Unfortunately, the remote control doesn't adjust the volume of the projection, and it doesn't wirelessly connect to alarms or sensors.

Geevon Projection Alarm Clock with Indoor Thermometer Hygrometer

by Geevon

The Geevon projection alarm clock is a great looking alarm clock. It projects a calendar and indoor weather forecast onto your ceiling.

This device is wildly creepy. It's a giant clock projected onto the ceiling that can project a full-color digital clock with weather information on it as well. That alone would be creepy, but there's also a thermometer in the display with an alert function that gives you a warning when it's getting too hot or cold in your room. The projection clock also doubles as a Bluetooth speaker (with Bluetooth support and a dedicated button) and a 4-watt speaker that projects sound out the wall or ceiling. It's a lot bigger than we expected, but if you're into this sort of thing it's something you should check out.

by Mily

We like the adjustable swivel projector and the horizontal projection feature. But several customers complained that the projector head had broken off.

The Mily alarm clock projector offers an easy way to project the time on the ceiling or above your bedside table, so you can wake up to that familiar sound of the alarm. It's reasonably priced, offers a variety of projection options, and is easy to set up. The alarm clock does a fine job of showing the temperature, which is helpful if you set the alarm and then fall asleep before resetting it. It's made of plastic, so it won't be as durable as metal or glass, but it's light enough for most uses. The speaker is loud enough to wake you, but it won't be loud enough to wake an entire household. The projection lamp is bright enough for the alarm clock to still work at a reasonable brightness for a bedroom. The speaker is hooked up to the alarm clock, so if you want to turn off the alarm clock, you'll have to turn off the speaker, too. The unit does a fine job of projecting the date and time, and the clock face is bright enough to read in the dark without waking your family. We liked that the projector can be set in either the portrait- or landscape-based orientation, and also has an auto-focus feature to ensure that the image is consistent. The projection lamp needs to recharge after about an hour of working, and that's a problem for anyone who uses the alarm frequently; it also shuts off after 12 hours. The projection alarm clock is reasonably priced (the lowest-priced option we tested), and it's easy to set up. It's particularly good for long flights, and it's a good choice for people who like to wake up to nature sounds instead of an alarm.

OnLyee Projection Alarm Clock for Bedroom

by OnLyee

If you're looking for a solid alarm clock that projects the time on a large, clear screen, this one is your best bet. It has two alarm options, each tailored to different people's sleeping habits. It makes waking up to the alarm much easier, and allows for a longer snooze. The snooze button is brutal though.

The Projection Alarm Clock for Bedroom is, well, an alarm clock with a projector, so you can get some early morning light without turning on all the lights (or if you do, you don't need to get out of bed). It's also multifunctional, with USB charging and a backup battery, and can double as a Bluetooth speaker. This alarm has dual alarms, each with its own snooze function, so you can set one for 5:30 and another for 6:00, for example. The projection alarm clock is also surprisingly versatile. You can mount it on the wall, or use it as a bedside alarm clock. The built-in brightness can be adjusted from 1 to 7, depending on the lighting in your room. The rotating focus and projection capability make this model particularly well-suited for DST and daylight saving time, because the time on the projection clock always matches the time on your clock radio or cellphone. We especially like the ability to rearrange the projection button—you can move it up to turn off the projection, or move it all the way down to extend the projection time.

by La Crosse Technology, Ltd.

A basic alarm clock with projected time that displays in 12- or 24-hour format. Its out-of-focus projection can be corrected with the included magnifier.

This projection clock serves mostly as an alarm, but it also has temperature readouts and a built-in hygrometer. Its picture is sharp, and its clock face is relatively easy to read in daylight. You can set up the clock to display both day and month, but the mode that offers a clearer picture is the day mode. Otherwise, the projection clock is reasonably bright. On the down side, it's expensive, and while the projection lamp is replaceable, a replacement bulb will set you back about $90.

The La Crosse Technology 616-146 is one of our favorite alarm clocks of the year, and its combination of features makes it an ideal addition to any home. That includes its projection capability, which projects both the time and the temperature in either red or blue. It also alerts you to the outdoor temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit, as well as the status of your home security, including motion activation and garage door access. In addition, the 616-146 has an alarm function that can be set to either trigger when you've left your home or when you've been locked out. The projection feature works well, and we were able to easily adjust its brightness and rotation angle. The alarm functions are easy to use, and we like that they can all be programmed once and can work independently of each other. The alarm and projection functionality also work great when paired to a 7-inch tablet, and we particularly liked the charging port, which provides a convenient place to plug in overnight, or when the projector is not in use. The 616-146 is a bit larger than other models we tested, and it costs a bit more, but it's worth every penny.

15 Best Ceiling Projection Clocks For Your Living Room

A ceiling projectional clock adds an extra dimension to any living room decor by making time look like it's suspended above your head as if you were standing under a waterfall. They're much bigger than wall clocks so they don't take up valuable floor space and are also very durable because there's nothing moving inside them - only light shining onto the face. So what makes the top fifteen? We've taken into consideration factors such as size, style and functionality among others.

A ceiling projection clock projects images onto your room's ceiling using either a light source or computer video screen technology. This allows people to see what time it is while they're sleeping. People love this feature because it provides sleep-timing without waking anyone else up. Some projections have built-in speakers so sound effects play when certain times on the display occur. However, most ceilings projectors don't make sounds unless programmed into the device. Projection clocks can be found online or at specialty stores such as Bed Bath & Beyond. They usually cost between $100-$200 depending upon size and quality. Be sure to get ones that come with batteries; otherwise there won't be any power source when the lights go out. Also, check whether the model comes with wall mounting hardware.

Here are some of the advantages of buying ceiling projections clocks, such as: 1 They enhance indoor decorating. These models come in many different styles. Their sleek designs add elegance to both traditional homes and modern ones alike. Some of the most popular styles include minimalist, contemporary, classic, industrial, retro, and rustic among others. 2 They offer unique benefits. In addition to offering elegant looks, they also provide various benefits. For instance, some models enable users to set alarms while being projected onto the wall. Some models boast automatic shut off capabilities that turn them on only when the room gets dark. Others project images and videos during certain times of the day thereby providing an opportunity for families to spend quality time together. 3 They bring convenience to busy lives. Many people often find themselves rushing from place to place throughout the course of a week. Being constantly pressed by various obligations may lead us to forget vital events, appointments and tasks. Ceiling Projection Clocks prevent this scenario by allowing homeowners to know what's going on and stay abreast of everything through live updates on their walls.
4 They are affordable. A lot of people think that expensive gadgets are indispensable but if we take a closer look at the prices of available options and compare them against each other, ceiling projection clocks stand out amongst its competitors. Most projects clocks cost between $150-$

Do clocks really project onto ceilings so people don't have to bend down to see them?

Yes! Some clocks actually 'project' on walls which makes them much easier to read. Most clock projections are horizontal however some models come with vertical designs. For example; this model comes with a small screen inside the base where the numbers appear.

Are these types of clocks easier to read at night or during darkness?

It really doesn't matter what type of light source there is; most people have trouble reading even bright ambient lighting while looking at something directly. However, when they're on a desk trying to look at the clock because it isn't where its owner normally looks every morning, having more light helps make things visible. The problem here seems to lie much less with the light sources than the actual size of the objects being viewed.

Does anyone know what brands make ceiling projection clocks?

There are many companies that offer this type of device but only few have products on Amazon. Some examples would be Cineon Digital Clock Projection System which sells for $149.95 and Proview CLP-100C Ceiling Projection Alarm Clock sold for $109.99 on amazon.com. I believe there might even be other similar devices out there. Other than those listed above, we don't see any other brand name products being offered online.

Can these kinds of clocks be used indoors?

Most modern travel alarms can operate inside so long as there isn't any interference caused by walls or windows that would block the signal.

Will these units keep running when no one's around?

Yes. They have automatic shut offs. Some don't have any manual controls so they only turn on when someone opens them. If you're going away for more than three days then make sure your clocks aren't plugged into power outlets unless you want to lose all power during your absence. [The following link was removed.

Should we buy a different kind of clocks instead of these projection ones?

If using these types of clocks on the road would cause problems then they might not be the ideal choice. There is nothing wrong with getting something more portable than what was once considered standard but this type isn't really meant to just sit there all the time. When travelling I think having something small enough to fit into your bag and easy to set is important so unless you plan on carrying around your entire house with you everywhere you probably shouldn't get one of these. If however you're looking to have some sort of display device somewhere else in your house which doesn't require batteries then these could be suitable. They don't project images onto walls so make sure those aren't needed when considering this option.

Final Words

While many different types of ceiling projection clocks exist, these models stand apart due to their unique style and practical features. These clocks offer comfort and functionality which other similar devices do not provide. So if you want something fun for your bedroom or living room, consider one of these units as an option!
