Hi idreamincode, 

I suspect that you’re asking about the Alpha Clock Five, not the Bulbdial. ;)
There’s no obligation whatsoever to use it as a clock.  You can feed serial data to the clock using a USB-TTL cable, or another Arduino, or use the available spare I/O pins any way that you like.  The current version of Alpha Clock Five has 9 (if i counted correctly) spare I/O pins that can be used as inputs, not counting the two pins that go to the second serial port.
I hope that this answers your question; if not, please let me know how I can help. :D
