Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging and evergreen technology that has created worldwide networked machines and also devices that can help in exchanging communication. As the real-time applications have been increasing day-by-day, the need for smart connections has also increased. Challenging smart connectivity, IoT-based smart alarm clocks have been designed in this paper. For decades, alarm clocks have been in use, but as the technology progressed, mobile phones came into existence, and people find it easier to set alarms on mobiles. Among electronics hobbyists, alarm projects have always been in great demand. IoT alarm clock is built using Node MicroController Unit (NodeMCU), where alarm time can be set using a webpage without Internet connection.


Alarm clocks have been used for a long time because they solve a real problem, i.e., making sure we get up on time. Their importance is apparent, and many of us would have significant difficulties in getting to work each day if we did not have one. This has to be one of the most relaxing ways to start the day. The alarm sets off a light that gradually brightens, triggering hormones in your body and allowing you to get out of bed without a jolt. If you are worried about waking up with only a lamp, there is always a backup alarm. Even though most people use their phones as their primary alarm clocks, we believe there is still room for a smart alarm. The problem is that, in addition to the issue of space, you need something with a lot of features that will work well in comparison to a conventional alarm (Botia and Charitos, 2013).

This clever setup does not necessitate a large room. This allows users to save time and get out of bed in a more enthusiastic manner, while our pre-programmed mathematical calculations stimulate the user's brain and keep them busy during the day. People have been using alarm clocks to wake up for a long time, long before timekeepers were invented. The first cue to rise and sparkle was likely the morning
