Wiring the bed with pressure sensors is too complicated. Perhaps just a 
sensor under one foot?  And then with a waterbed, how?

Do we want to need HDMI cables to connect the bed to the clock?

Simpler would be a photo sensor in the clock to dim the display.

Or how about a knob?  Like a volume control?  Like on the GE clock radio 
I bought at Woolco in 1977?

Very simple.  And it still works.
