Sunrise Alarm Clock With LCD Display and Bluetooth App

Wintertime can be sad. You wake up, its dark and you have to get out of bed. The last thing you want to hear is the annoying sound of your alarm clock. If you, like me, have trouble waking up in the morning this alarm clock is just what you need.
In this tutorial, we are going to build a Sunrise Alarm Clock. It’s an alarm clock like any other in that you can set the hour and minute you want to wake up, but with the benefit of using light to brighten up your bedroom over a period of time like a sunrise to wake you up instead of an annoying buzzer!
We will also be using a bluetooth module to create an app that let’s you set the alarm via your phone onto the clock. The LCD display will show the tiime, date and day of week.Sunrise lamps exist on the market but they can be expensive (a quick search on Google returns products in the 100 range), fragile and quite clinical-looking. That’s why I decided to make my own for my Arduino School Project. All the parts will be listed in the next step. The code can be downloaded from my Github repo sunrise-alarm-clock. Let’s begin :)
