Homedics Sound Spa alarm clocks relaxes users to sleep at night and reliably rouses them in the morning. With accurate radio-controlled time and features like a radio, alarm and nature noises, a Homedics Sound Spa is a great gift for yourself or a loved one. Learning to use a Homedics Sound Spa is simple, leaving you more time for relaxation.
Three AAA batteries are used to power your Homedics Sound Spa alarm clock. For best results, the manufacturer recommends using alkaline batteries, rather than rechargeable, in your Homedics Sound Spa. To install the batteries in your Homedics Sound Spa, remove the battery compartment cover and insert the batteries, taking care to observe polarity. Install the batteries in the Sound Spa clock unit before installing the batteries in remote sensor unit. Because alkaline batteries contain a sufficient amount of water which can freeze at low temperatures, the manufacturer recommends using Lithium batteries to power your Sound Spa's remote sensor unit during the winter months.
Set the units side-by-side and leave them untouched for fifteen minutes while the devices learn to communicate. When you come back after the fifteen minutes, the time and date settings on your clock should have been automatically set using the atomic time signal from Fort Collins, Colorado. Your clock will receive regular updates to ensure it always displays the most correct time. If the time signal update is interrupted, you may have to set the clock manually. You can do this by using the clock's "Hour" and "Min" buttons to set the clock to the desired time.
Positioning the Units
Your Homedics Sound Spa clock comes with an outdoor remote sensor that is used to transmit outdoor temperature and humidity information to the indoor clock unit. A Homedics remote sensor has a signal range of 100 feet for most of the year. In the winter months, the extreme temperatures can interfere with the signal transmission from the remote sensor. Moving the remote sensor closer to the indoor clock unit will usually remedy this problem.
The positioning and placement of the indoor clock unit is important as well. The Homedics Sound Spa uses a radio-controlled time signal transmitted from Fort Collins, Colorado to ensure that your device always displays the correct time. Other radio-controlled devices, as well as buildings made with materials like stucco, metal or aluminum siding, can interfere with your Sound Spa's ability to receive the atomic signal. Positioning your Sound Spa away from such interferences, and near a window, will help your Sound Spa receive its regularly scheduled updates.
You can position the projection tube on your Homedics Sound Spa to determine where your time projection will be displayed. For the best results, position your clock so that it is 12 feet or less from the wall where the time will be projected.
Using the Nature Sounds/Radio Features
The Homedics Sound Spa clock features a variety of nature sounds that can be played to relax users to sleep. This feature can be accessed by pressing the numbered buttons on the indoor clock unit. The Homedics Sound Spa also features a radio, which can be operated using the "Radio" and "AM/FM" buttons.
Care and Maintenance
Proper care and maintenance will help keep your Homedics Sound Spa clock performing at its best. Care and maintenance for your Sound Spa clock includes keeping the system clean, out of extreme temperatures and away from excessive moisture. Should your Sound Spa clock need to be cleaned, wipe it with a soft cloth that has been dampened with a solution of mild soap and water. If your Sound Spa clock comes into contact with excessive moisture, dry the clock quickly and thoroughly to prevent permanent damage.
