A smart bedside lamp that tracks your sleep phases.
Urbandroid Team introduces a different kind of sleep tracking device. With bedroom-friendly design and uniquely used infrared contactless sensor, sleep tracking can finally get invisible.
The story behind Sleep Phaser
We knew that for the best future compatibility with Sleep as Android, we have to develop our own device. Yes, Sleep as Android offers a lot of integrations with third-party hardware, but at any moment those integrations can break for reasons out of our control. Sleep tracking has slowly gone from being a geek thing to being used by regular people that need it to just work – and who don’t want another weird looking computer in their bedroom.
We knew that we had to design it in a way that would be both easy to use and a tight fit in the bedroom. That’s why we chose to merge the sleep tracking sensor into the body of a bedside lamp. The sensor will be neatly hidden in the form that is useful even when not monitoring your sleep.
And why the name? Because guess who won the Urbandroid war between Star Trek and Star Wars fans 🙂
Aren’t there enough sleep tracking devices on the market?
Sleep tracking devices are all the hype lately. It seems that everyone and their aunt has a new piece of hardware coming up to engage in checking your zzz’s. Previously unknown companies are emerging with products like Hello Sense and then vanishing into darkness, while corporations like Resmed or Nokia produce bulky and expensive boxes to be put in your bedroom.
There is a lot left to be desired about today’s sleep tracking devices. Current sleep tracking devices are single-purpose things that you either still need to put in your bed (Bluetooth-connected motion sensors or bed straps), or that are pretty large (buying a whole mattress might seem like overkill for some), not quite beautiful, and of course, they’re really pricey. With Sleep Phaser, we tiptoe around all of these troubles.
Sleep Phaser is an elegant bedside lamp that doubles as a sleep tracking device.
Sleep Phaser goes out of your way.
Hi Sleep Phaser team,
I’m reaching out from the Wearable Technology Show. We’re doing a Sleep Pavilion this year sponsored by the National Sleep Foundation, and I’m really interested in reaching out to Sleep tech companies. Came across you guys on IndieGoGo and thought would get in touch to learn a bit more about you.
Is there an email address I can contact you on?
All the best,
Hi Ben, definitely! The best would be to contact me on email@example.com – looking forward to your mail!
Sounds quite perfect! Will it work without having to connect it to your phone?
As with all Sleep as Android’s integrations, Sleep Phaser sends data to the phone in real-time for processing and triggers.
Great post! It’s nice to see some more options for sleep trackers. Thanks for sharing!
Hi just wondered, i was thinking of buying a samsung gear S3 frontier watch to monitor my heartrate etc while i sleep with the sleep as android app, as this would elimate me having put my mobile on my mattress.
my question is? would this lamp elimate my use of the watch or will the watch and sleep phaser lamp work together and send all the data to the mobile.
as im guessing the lamp will nto be able to tell me my heartrate etc
Hi, with Gear S3, you can use Sleep Phaser as the motion sensor and breathing sensor, and your watch as heart rate sensor. Sleep as Android will get your heart rate data from S Health, so if you set up your watch to regularly measure your heart rate and send it to S Health, this will work perfectly.
Can I connect my USB C Smartphone and NOT charge while connecting/sleeping? My charge lasts for three or four days, and I don’t want to charge every night.
Hi, that’s no problem. We just use the USB to detect that your phone is physically close to the Phaser so we might assume higher probability that you’d be going to sleep. This is completely optional and you can use Sleep Phaser totally without the phone connected by cable.
Hello Jiri. I got my Phaser today, but I don’t know how to set it up and it didn’t come with instructions. I was hoping to find it here, but haven’t yet. Please help. Thank you!
Hi, sorry to overlook this – there is a link on the box and also inside the box on a piece of paper, pointing to the instructions here: sleep.urbandroid.org/phaser
