TimeSmart® Self-Setting Projection Clock

Sets itself and displays the time on your wall or ceiling in a sharp, high-quality image.


See the time clearly on your wall or ceiling. Just plug in our self-setting projection clock and select your time zone. It automatically sets itself to the correct time--and thanks to its built-in projection feature, you won't even have to move your head to see it! Just open your eyes to view the time in large digits displayed on your wall or ceiling. Projector has focus adjustment to ensure a crystal-clear image and flips 180° to change the orientation of the image so you can see the time from any position in the room without moving the clock.

A smart alarm clock loaded with user-friendly features.
The TimeSmart® Self-Setting Projection Clock has dual crescendo alarms with snooze to wake you gradually and let you set two separate wake-up times. Fumble-free pop-up alarm buttons are easy to find first thing in the morning. The easy-to-read display shows the time and has an adjustable backlight with five settings to choose from: High, Medium, Low, Dim or Off.

TimeSmart® clocks never need setting—or resetting.
As with all of our TimeSmart® clocks, the projection clock automatically sets the right time and resets after power outages or unplugging. It even remembers your alarm settings! The extra long-life battery back-up system lasts five years, so the time will always be accurate, even through numerous power interruptions. Plus, the clock adjusts to six time zones, and auto-adjusts for Daylight Savings Time.

See the time clearly on your wall or ceiling with our TimeSmart Self-Setting Projection Clock. Order from Brookstone today!

This projection clock is perfect for me because I have a hard time reading a bedside alarm clock. When I want to know what time it is, I just look at the ceiling! I really like the self-setting feature, too. All you have to do it plug it in—no glasses needed! It resets after power outages and even remembers your settings!

About me: Electronic Engineer replacing red-projected time display. The clock: A. This clock comes close to being great! The issues are subtle but primarily a few engineering opinions on what "WE" want. Both modes of this clock are too bright. Part of Internet version 2 (interactive) is that users can adjust 'everything' to the way that THEY want it, not the way that someone else wants it. These guys don't "get it." They made reasonable choices based on their opinions on how the clock will be used. However, we like to sleep in almost total darkness and it is impossible to reduce intensity to a reasonable value. B. Some of the settings are counter intuitive, for example, if you adjust the clock brightness by holding down the SNOOZE button, I would assume that you adjust the projection brightness by holding down the PROJ button - NOT! C. Another user pointed out that the projected display only flips 180 degrees. My last clock adjusted 90 degrees so I had four directions I could project. Best practices: Be able to adjust in 5 or 10 degree increments throughout the range and have projector lens point in any direction. D. I really bought this because it was a "Self-Setting Clock." It is NOT! I once read that if you needed a clock, it should be able to set itself, like my OTHER clocks do by picking up US Govt radio broadcasts of time. This clock just has a battery backup - not the same thing. Battery backup is Same Old Thing I have had for 40 years.

Comments about TimeSmart® Self-Setting Projection Clock:

Great alarm clock. Nice finishing, large display, and a clear projection display. Allows users to set 2 seperate alarm settings. Only downside is when set to automatic mode, the time can be inaccurate by being 2 minutes behind. The alarm feature of this clock is interesting as it steadily builds up when it goes off. As for the brightness issue, users are suppose to hold down the snooze button for a few seconds to toggle its 4 levels of brightness adjustment. Overall, of all the clocks out there, this one is my top pick.

      Comments about TimeSmart® Self-Setting Projection Clock:

      I love everything about this alarm clock: the two separate alarms with quiet-to-loud wake-up tones; the automatic time set; but most of all the projection feature... but after 2 years the projection light went out, and I can't find any info on how to replace it. So I bought another one of these clocks. If anyone knows how to replace the projection bulb, I would love to know how.

        Display on clock lights up the whole room by itself. Unable to dim. Also unable to rotate ceiling display. If clock is facing you it's always upside down on ceiling display.

          This is the second clock I bought. I purchased one for myself and when my wife tried it, she loved it. The adjustable brightness of the display is great and projection works well. It has two alarms AND when the alarms activate, they awaken you with a hushed alarm increasing to loud. Not an offensive alarm, They work perfect. Brookstone always has unique products. Thank You!

              The projection light on the wall is too bright, and there is no adjustment for this, like there is for the clock back light. Otherwise very good clock and easily to use.

                    Comments about TimeSmart® Self-Setting Projection Clock:

                    I love the idea of never having to set the time. Though I e only used the alarm a couple times, they were easy to set and they woke me up. It is very bright but I turned the display light off and sleep with a sleep mask on anyway because of all the other power lights in my room. The only other thing I would like more about this clock is if the projection went the opposite direction. I keep it up on the ceiling because I sleep with my back facing the clock most of the time. And you have to have the clock facing right at you for it to project on the wall where you could see it. There are children's character clocks sold at target that have a better design but they don't automatically set themselves and the time on the display and the time on the projection have to be set separately.
