Sound Sensing Alarm Clock Light

First I want to say that this is a cool project for any range of skill level. If you are a beginner with Arduino and are nervous about complexity I encourage you to give this a try as I will try to as helpful as I can and its always best to jump into a project if you want to learn more. This Instructable shows you how to create a device that senses when your alarm on your phone goes off (or any alarm near it for that matter) and turns on an LED above your bed in order to wake you up in the mornings. I had this idea while living in a noisy house at college where one of my house mates has trouble sleeping because other people are too loud at night. My housemate could not wear hear pugs to bed because he would sleep through his alarm.”
