Philips Somneo Connected Lamp Wants You to Sleep Better
Philips has a fairly decent track record when it comes to their LED offerings. Extending beyond the traditional lightbulb product, Philips showed off its Somneo Connected lamp at the IFA Global Press Conference in Rome last week, and the gadget left us impressed. The lamp combines a number of different tech trends that we’ve seen—from natural lighting to sleep tracking—all inside one, futuristic-looking package that’s chockfull of smart features.
At the simplest level, the Somneo Connected lamp is a nightstand lamp that functions as an alarm clock and a bed-side lamp. But it’d be rather insulting to stop there when describing how smart this lamp actually is.
Philips, during its Power Briefing in Rome, described its ambitious goal of impacting the lives of 3 billion people by 2025. It’s path to accomplishing that goal involves developing an endless trove of smart health devices in all shapes and sizes. The Somneo Connected lamp is no different. The focus of this product is achieving quality sleep, which, Philips said, 40 percent of people aged 25-45 don’t get.
