Despite our great advances in technology, we are still highly reliant on the clock for it’s ability to keep us on track with time both individually and collectively. In terms of accuracy, nothing beats the now fairly commonly available radio atomic clock.
This home atomic clock works by sending and receiving radio signals from the atomic clocks in the region. (For example in North America, this is typically the National Institute of Standards and Technology atomic clock radio station WWVB in Boulder, Colorado).
There are several stations around the world that allows the radio clock to tune in to receive updates as to the most accurate times.
One of the greatest benefits of these clocks is the consistency in which it keeps track of time, never needing to be updated during the typical clock changing times, such as Daylight Savings or when reverting back to Standard Time. The radio atomic clock at home, simply updates it’s on it’s own based on the radio signals received. It is typically accurate down to the second.
