How many times have you been woken up by a wrong number? The Dreamer by Hale is an app-powered alarm dock designed for Android phones that can manage those middle of the night calls by filtering out the important calls from the wrong ones. The dock has an automatic call-screening feature called SmartSilence that allows users to selectively choose which calls will come through on your phone while sleeping.
