At the IFA consumer technology event in Berlin, Samsung unveiled the cylindrical device that connects with your TV, air conditioning, music system, and other home appliances — all managed through a mobile app. “It’s connected to your life,” the company says. The Korean tech titan also launched a SmartThings Hubto manage home IoT systems today, which ties into these individual product rollouts.
The SleepSense connects via low-energy Bluetooth to the user’s smartphone and delivers daily sleep reports every morning, which includes a ‘sleep score’ out of 80 that Samsung says allows the users to quickly quantify how good their sleep was and compare different days, weeks and months.
Samsung says it plans to expand this functionality in the future, although at present there is no reactive element to the SleepSense.
