Wi-Fi Wall Clock

Here in the U.S. where I live, we had to go through the bi-annual changing of the clocks again. While trying to get my "Atomic Clock" to sync with its server somewhere, I wondered why someone doesn't make a Wi-Fi clock. One that resets itself automatically just like Windows O/S does. One that would use my wireless router to time sync like my Network HDD does. I did a search online only to find a painfully few such clocks. And none suitable for a living room. If anyone has seen reference to such an item, please pass it along...

    Thank you for the effort. But those appear to be what I have now; a radio controlled clock that receives its signal from an antenna in Boulder Co.

    The one I have is very unreliable... but expensive. I was hoping to find a clock that didn't rely on the NIST transmitter, but instead would get its sync from my router just as my network hard drive does and just as Windows does.

  5. Please see: www.everset.net generation of radio-controlled clocks, based on a phase-modulated signal for NIST's WWVB broadcast, improves reception sensitivity by about 100x. Coming soon. Also, see NIST WWVB website for more info: http://www.nist.gov/pml/div688/grp40/wwvb.cfm (Enhanced WWVB Broadcast Format)

    Thank you for that. Is this system upgrade something my 10 year old clock can make use of, or do I need to buy a new, specially designed clock to make use of it? I noticed that this last time change, my clock seemed to sync over night as one would expect it to. (for a change)
