Supports iHome+Sleep iPhone app

iHome has released the iA5 App-Enhanced Alarm Clock Speaker System for the iPhone and iPod touch. The new alarm clock is designed to communicate with the company's iHome+Sleep app, which enables users to adjust the clock's time, alarm, and EQ settings from their iPhone. By equipping the speaker system with the app users receive up to 18 additional software alarms and nap alarms, and can browse local weather information. Other benefits of the app enable users to share wake up and bedtime status updates through either Facebook or Twitter, and to view sleep statistics.

Owners can also set a snooze or program wake alarms that can play movies or songs. A line-in jack is present for connecting additional audio devices. The system is also semi-portable and runs off its built-in power adapter or three AAA batteries.

The iHome alarm clock is currently priced at $100 and can be ordered from the company's website, while the iHome+Sleep app is already available (free, App Store).
