Sleep deprivation is becoming an epidemic. According to a research, over 68% Americans don’t get enough sleep. Internet of Things is helping us in this realm as well. Massachusetts-based company Cambridge Sound Management (CSM) has launched a great connected Device which helps humans in fixing their sleep routine in a unique way.
Nightingale is an Internet of Things marvel which helps people to improve their lives. Nightingale is a connected noise generator based on the IoT principles. This devices could be attached or put anywhere and paired with the phone. Nightingale produces ‘Sound Blankets’ to kill the annoying distractions or voices. Noise generators have helped people in getting sleep for years. For example, I used to live in an apartment where neighbors were really noisy. I used to turn on a fan in my lounge to curb the noise of neighbors. Similarly, noise generators are used in offices or workplaces to help employees focus on their work.
Nightingale device can be plugged in any power source. It is much better than normal noise producers because it is based on scientific acoustics and sound laws.
Nightingale is the world’s first IoT-based noise generator. It has a two-unit system which creates ambient sounds. The best part about Nightingale is that it produces an effect of a “Blanket Sound” which means that your brain doesn’t localize the sounds to one place. The sounds seem to be coming steadily from all places. This helps the brain to focus and relax. These sound blankets were designed by sound experts to synch the sound curves with human ear and brain dynamics. Nightingale has two speakers, which could be put on either side of the room.
Nightingale also has apps for iOS and Android. Using this app, you can change the sounds, set sounds according to your acoustics and sleeping conditions and much more. You can also adjust sounds for the type of hardwood or carpet floor, and the type of room you are in. You can also filter and set sounds based on your age. There are special sleep sounds in Nightingale for kids. There are more than 15 sounds available in the app. You can also import your custom sounds.
The device can also be integrated with Smart Home and IoT devices like Ring, Nest, Amazon Echo, Philip Hue, IFTTT and more.
