With how much time is spent in our bedrooms, many people have begun to incorporate smart technology into their bedroom designs, finding ways to make their day more convenient. A smart bedroom can help improve sleep, make waking up more comfortable and give you a greater level of control over your rest. Here we explore four great smart home ideas that can streamline your bedtime.
Hands-Off Lighting Control
One of the best features of a smart bedroom is not having to worry about turning the lights on or off throughout the day. Lighting control can be fully automated, or you can choose to control it directly from your smartphone from anywhere in the world.
Instead of waking up to bright lights flooding your eyes in the morning, program your lights to turn on slowly, allowing you to wake up gently and more naturally. At night, the lights can begin dimming themselves at a certain hour, letting you know it’s time to get ready for bed. You can also set your lights to turn on when you walk into the room and turn off as you leave it, conserving energy and saving you the hassle of fumbling with the light switch.
The advent of smart speakers has allowed for hands-free, voice-activated control over almost any smart device in a home. Long-gone are the days where you could clap to turn lights on or off. Now, a simple voice command can not only set mood lighting, but it can also turn on music, change the TV channel, access the security camera feeds and much more. Installing a smart speaker in your bedroom will give you the option to easily control your environment from the comfort of your bed.
Your Music, Your Way
If you’re an audiophile, you’ll want to be able to enjoy your collection of music in high definition audio from the comfort of your bedroom. With smart technology, you can do just that. AcoustiCreations can set up an integrated 5.1 surround sound system that encompasses your bedroom with in-ceiling and in-wall speakers. Best of all, you can control all your music from your smart device without having to leave your bed.
Insight Into Your Sleep
Sleep tracking technology lets you get information about your sleeping patterns straight to your phone each morning. By wearing a simple wristband, you can know not just how long you slept, but by measuring your REM patterns you can know how deep and restful your sleep was too.
