The alarm doesn’t sound. What should I do?
1. After setting the alarm, exit the app before locking your iPhone. If the
app is running while it’s locked, the alarm will not sound. (see bugs above)
2. Check that your “Do not disturb” setting on your iPhone is turned off,
otherwise the alarm will not sound.
3. Under Settings > Notifications > ZenAwake > Ensure that all settings are On.
How do I set my alarm clock to optimal volume?
This is a hard one to answer. We recommend choosing the
alarm type based on the level of noise in your sleep environment and
then use trial and error to find your perfect volume settings.
When should I use “Zen” for Light Sleepers?
If the sound of a door knob opening wakes you up, then we
suggest setting your alarm clock to Zen. It will be the most
peaceful wake you will ever experience.
When should I use “Om” for Normal Sleepers?
Normal is actually not the normal at all. Majority of people are
either Light or Heavy sleepers. However, if Zen doesn’t wake you up,
and Buddha isn’t much of a progressive wake, then setting your alarm
clock to Om will be perfect.
When should I use “Buddha” for Heavy Sleepers?
If you have a noisy sleep environment, such as a computer
or fan running, then try using this. Or, if your sleep is similar
to a bear in hibernation, this would be your best choice.
