satisfied Review by Daughter with peace of mind
Overall Satisfaction
My mother has cochlear implants, so she is completely deaf at night when she takes them off to sleep. My father recently died and I realized that she would not know the fire alarms were going off now at night. She also didn't have a way to wake up in the mornings for church or appointments. So I started looking for an alarm that could do both. I am happy to say this does both beautifully. It was very easy to set up and responded to the test of the fire alarms even with the bedroom door shut. She hasn't complained about the light the alarm produces at all as others have in these comments. I would buy again if I needed to. (Posted on 3/22/2017)
Hopeful Review by NOLA

This is the second Lifetone alarm I have purchased . I wear cochlear implants and need this at night when they are removed. The first one I bought stopped working after the warranty was over (about a year and a half) so I am hopeful this one will last longer as it is expensive. The orange light doesm't bother me during the night. (Posted on 3/11/2015)
Just what I needed for peace of mind Review by TomDC
Overall Satisfaction
I read about a tragic fire recently and then realized that even with my aids, I barely hear smoke alarms. My bedroom is on the second level of a townhouse with one set of stairs. I'd been putting off dealing with a concern about not hearing a smoke alarm at night and decided it was time to act. The Lifetone seemed to be the best option.

It is a very solid device, was easy to set up, and is able to "hear" the smoke alarm on the first level in the back by the kitchen. I've tried the test alarm, and I can hear the alarm clearly without my HA and the bed shaker is quite powerful. And it shouts and flashes when the fire alarm is triggered. You can also use this as an alarm clock and the tone and bed shaker should do well.

I have one negative. The clock face is an orange, back lit display. It is easy to read, however, it is quite a lot of light even on the lower of the two brightness settings. There is lots of research showing that too much light in a bedroom detracts from a good sleep. I turned the back light off and have to push the snooze bar if I want to read it at night. (The red light indicating AC power is also very bright and there is no option to tone that down at all.) I wish there was a lower brightness option for the clock face.

I thankfully haven't had to try it for real but I sleep a lot better knowing I'll be alerted if there is a fire. (Posted on 2/5/2015)
