For the bedroom this has many advantages because we can sleep easier and manage our tasks more efficiently. The technology is currently growing but the possibilities for the future are endless. It’s only a matter of time before every product you purchase can be controlled via iPhone or Android.

Great for people with roommates that have different sleeping schedules.
Being able to monitor your own sleep has several benefits. By analyzing the data from your sleep cycles, the Luna Smart Bed Cover recommends what works best for you.

The big difference between this bulb and similar smart bulbs is the simulated sunrise feature. Waking up in the morning because of either loud noises or bright lights is the wrong way to wake up.

Thanks to the colorful LED’s, the Bolt Smart Bulb can simulate sunrises in various color tones.
Smart products help to make life easier by putting the power of control at our fingertips. With a pinch and swipe it is easy to turn on lights, set air temperature, monitor sleep, and gently wake up in the morning. People fall asleep with their iPhone next to them, so it only makes sense for bedroom devices to be controlled via smartphone.
