Sleep Phaser: User manual

First start

  1. Connect your Sleep Phaser to the power supply.
  2. In Sleep as Android, go to Settings > Smartlight > Sleep Phaser and tap Sleep Phaser disconnected. The app will connect to the nearest Sleep Phaser. This will also unlock your Sleep as Android, if you have the trial version.
  3. After a successful connection, you can activate one or more Sleep Phaser functions:
    • Smartlight: Enables sunrise alarm. When this option is enabled, the general smartlight options (Pee-light, Lucid dreaming, Anti-Snoring start to apply to Sleep Phaser)
    • Sleep tracking: Enables tracking movement and breathing with Sleep Phaser.
    • Start automatically: When enabled, sleep tracking will start in a standby mode (on infinite pause) whenever you connect your phone to a charger and Sleep Phaser is in bluetooth range.

Sleep tracking

Tracking with Sleep Phaser can be started either manually or automatically.

Manually starting

In Sleep as Android, tap on the moon button. The app will connect to Sleep Phaser and start sleep tracking right away.

Automatically starting

Whenever you connect your phone to a charger, Sleep checks whether you are in Sleep Phaser’s bluetooth range. If you are (and “Start automatically” is enabled), sleep tracking will show up in a pause mode.

Once you switch off the lamp, sleep tracking will unpause and will start monitoring your sleep.


Things to check before any troubleshooting:

  • make sure to install the latest BETA version of Sleep as Android (either from Play Store or from here)
  • make sure that you have Location (GPS) enabled – for some reason, Android needs this enabled to do a successful Bluetooth Low Energy scan
  • make sure that you power the Sleep Phaser with at least 1A charger

Phaser doesn’t connect to Sleep, top light button doesn’t work, bottom light button works

It might happen that the Phaser gets stuck in bootloader mode after plugging to power. In this mode, the main button for turning on the light is unresponsive, but the second (bottom) button starts the base colored light normally. If something like this happens, we have to do a firmware reupload. Please let us know ASAP. We don’t know if this happened to anybody in production.

Phaser doesn’t connect to Sleep, light buttons work normally

In this case we suspect that bluetooth got into some weird state (bluetooth devices often do). Please do a systematical restart of all included devices:

  1. end sleep tracking, force close Sleep as Android
  2. disable/enable bluetooth
  3. start Sleep as Android
  4. plug the Phaser out and back in
  5. start sleep tracking

If it doesn’t start working, then

  1. restart your phone
  2. plug the Phaser out and back in
  3. disable/enable bluetooth
  4. start Sleep as Android
  5. start sleep tracking

And ideally send us a debug log (menu > report a bug) afterwards.
