Atomic clock alternative?

by hellocomputer / June 12, 2013 3:56 AM PDT

I put an atomic clock on my kitchen counter but there is no signal there so the clock doesn't sync.

There is, however, wifi set up in my house. Is there a clock that syncs to time server over wifi, similar to what computers do? I googled but found nothing. I don't want to use a laptop as a clock.

If you have a plugged in clock, it'll be very close

Clocks plugged into household current sync on the current which the power company keeps in sync with the correct time. So just get a clock like that instead of a battery operated one, and you'll be fine.
