Some people can sleep through anything and everything. Crashing thunder, breaking dishes, a bus driving through the house? No problem! But some self-preservation instinct seems to force even the soundest sleepers awake when they hear a smoke alarm go off.

Instructables user k_man93 takes advantage of this basic reaction and shows us how to use that shrill smoke detector "beeper" in a basic alarm clock. All you'll need is a cheap-o alarm clock, a smoke detector and some tools (screwdriver, pliers and—you guessed it—a soldering iron).
Check out the Instructables page for the detailed step-by-step. While you're here, tell us about what gets you up and out of bed in the mornings. Is it the smell of coffee, a regular, non-smoke detector alarm clock or maybe a sharp poke to the ribs?
