    Hey everyone, this is my first post of many so just wanna say hi to start.

    I have got a terrible problem with waking up even having the proper amount of sleep so i thought hey some strobing lights and buzzers will do the job.

    Got a good idea on the circuit design but I am struggling to think of a way to trigger it at 6 am. I have got a very basic understanding of circuits and electronics, I would say im a "breadboard hobbyist" so playing with timers, leds and the like.

    Perhaps there is a sensor of some type that could be placed near my cell phone which vibrates and makes sounds at that time that can be incorperated into the circuit as the switch/trigger.

    Throw the ideas out there!

    also is there a way to make a 9v buzzer louder? from what i know i would guess that a transitor would do that because it amplifies the power, please correct me if im wrong I may have interperted information incorrectly. lol thanks

    Bucket of used motor oil mounted above your head, held in place with a solenoid and a 1 minute delayed sound detection timer :)

    Betcha if there is a 1st time you miss the alarm there won't be a second :)
