DAB Home Security



I'd like a DAB radio primarily for secuirty reasons. I need it to start itself at a certain time and switch itself off (standby) at a much later time, and do this for at least a few days in a row. Anyone have any experience in using a DAB radio like this.

I've been looking at PURE manuals online and none of them seem to quite do what I need.

Thanks in advance.

If you look closely at the enlarged photo here there is a random button for the kind of thing your talking about or you can program time intervals.
I would use one of these (or somthing similar) and a cheap and cheerful mains FM radio if I were you - DAB seems like an unnecessary expense to me but as long as it doesn't power on to standby any DAB radio should also work.

The timed recording option in the Bug\Bug too, Tempus-1xt, Evoke-3, DMX-60, or Legato2 radios to do just this, the speakers can be selected to be off or on ... just go with "on" and your should get where you want to be.

Why not get a timer switch and a cheap fm stereo?

Sounds like overkill - a tea leaf won't care about sound quality lol.
Also no DAB stereo means no DAB stereo to steal.

If you still want to use a DAB, why not buy a clock radio with DAB? Dixons have the Hitachi for about £40 :)
