“People spend one-third of their time in the bedroom, so that’s why the smart bedroom is the key to the future. With the popularity of smart home, mattresses, pillows and other smart bedding are more automated and intelligent,” observed David Huang, CEO of Sleepace. Armed with statistical data that shows the growth of these trends, Sleepace launched and demonstrated its DreamLife Smart Bedroom Solution at CES. The company said that the solution includes a series of sleep modules that can be integrated into mattresses and pillows to control devices during sleep and provide a more comfortable environment to improve sleep quality.
The DreamLife Solution sensor modules monitor data during sleep and send the data to the company’s Sleepace app. The company’s newest product, the Amazon Alexa-compatible Nox Aroma Smart Sleep Light, is one element of the system, which helps users asleep easily with soothing scents, sounds and light.
The system’s monitoring device will send the sleeper’s status to the DreamLife cloud, which will trigger actions such as switching off a TV set and turning off the Nox Aroma Smart Sleep Light automatically. The monitoring device also tracks sleep data such as heart rate, breathing and body movement, and this system also extends to monitoring the sleeper’s bedroom environment including temperature, humidity, noise and brightness, adjusting room conditions based on what it reads. In the morning, the smart alarm of the Sleepace Nox Smart Sleep Light will wake up the user, and open curtains automatically. The system also generates a daily sleep report with tips about how to improve sleep quality through the app.
“The smart home technology revolution continues with specialist solutions like DreamLife adapted to mattresses and bedding. As the positive impact of good sleep becomes better understood, sleep monitoring will become mainstream.
“We predict that the number of people who use sleep technology will double in 2018, with smart mattresses and pillows integrated with other smart home technology in 20 percent of households by 2025,” said Huang.
