Users can even rotate the projection arm by 90 degrees and adjust intensity for the best possible viewing. Other features include time-zone setting, manual time setting, and automatic projection focus. The wireless sensor runs on two AA batteries, and the clock can operate from the included AC adapter or two backup AA batteries.
