Hello, at first.. I love my LaMetric; great gadget, cool features & design, even better sound !!!!
Looking forward to IFTT integration and all other future improvements xommunity requests, like scrollspeeds, RSS push, multiple Alarms aso ...
One thing I would like to see, is an even darker display!
I use LaMetric as a night stand and even the lowest brightness setting is disturbing me.
Would it technically be possible, to dim even more or to totally turn off the display.. without turning of the whole gadget. That would be great!
Thanks for reporting this, we will plan "Night mode" for brightness settings.
I am about buying (or not) this device to replace a bedside alarm clock, but the night brightness issue will not be compatible with my wife.
So.....one question : is it solved ? Is there a real 'embedded night mode in latest firmware' ?
If yes, I will buy it.
If no, I will not buy it.
It is definitely solved for me, and believe me, I'm really picky about this.
How was it solved ?
Through a 'blank' app or a real 'night mode' with ultra dimmed display (so you can still read the clock during full black night) ?
Hi Etienne, hi Kristo. I'm also annoyed by the night mode and NO in my opinion it has NOT been solved. 2 problems: first, the screen is too bright at night (especially because the dimmest setting still emits a white light, which is annoying). they haven't changed that. second, lametric does not allow any other screensaver app than the "clock" app (see screenshot). which means you have to manually select a "dark" app and are not able to have a night watch running (at a lower-than-current brightness setting). I think lametric just earned their money and now stopped developing this device
Well, in MY opinion, it HAS been solved by firmware update quite a while back and by my standard (and my better half's, who is extremely picky about lights in the bedroom), the amount of light is perfectly acceptable.
In our case it is not sitting directly on the bedside table but in front of the bed, facing us. No problem at all. It's all about a matter of taste.
If you hesitate: try it. Amazon has a good return policy...
And I beg to differ, but Lametric has to be praised for the continuous updates they bring to their clock. Last major one (January) was bringing compatibility with Google Home, so no, they certainly didn't stop developping.
Al Kooz, first of all, if you read the first page of the issue you will see me complaining about it (until I stopped when it was resolved).
Second, I was answering here merely hopping to be helpful by bringing my own personal experience (I own 2 lametrics and am very happy with what it does).
Lastly, as you accuse me of being paid by Lametric, well, I'm now glad you feel robbed and from now on couldn't care less about your whining. So please, get lost.
Hi, I would like to reopen this issue because it has become a reality and after unpacking yesterday and the first night, the clock (in night mode) is too bright. Would it be possible to do an update with brightness optimization or color adjustment of the clock? I believe the grey color tones (instead of the default white) would emit much less and could solve this problem.
