Cambridge Sound Management has created a new smart sleep system they have named Nightingale, which has been designed to mask indoor and outdoor noises to help you sleep even more soundly at night.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about the innovative new smart sleep system which immerses the bedroom in “sound blankets” and is available for earlybird backers from $149. The developers of Nightingale explain a little more about its inspiration and design.
Nightingale is designed by acoustic experts and audio engineers to help create the most effective sleep system on the market. We didn’t stop there. In addition to being the best product to help you sleep – we integrated key connectivity and control features to enhance usability and leverage the Internet of Things (IoT).
Nightingale can be customized to a room’s architecture and acoustics. The two-unit system offers 15 different ambient sound blankets that reduce wake occurrences by masking disruptive indoor and outdoor noises.
Unlike white noise machines, Nightingale sound blankets take into account your room’s architecture (wood floors, windows, carpet, etc.) and utilize the walls to reflect sound blankets into the space from two different units, each with 2 speakers. This creates a uniform and even coverage – and means the brain can’t perceive where the sound is coming from, making it blend into the background. Nightingale can also play different nature sounds to help ease you to sleep.
Nightingale can be controlled via iOS and Android mobile apps, or a web browser from any PC. Automatic scheduling allows you to program Nightingale to turn on before bedtime and turn off before you wake up. It can even ramp up the sound blankets slowly over time. It is the first smart sleep system that can connect to smart home devices such as Nest, Ring, Amazon Alexa, and Philips Hue via the popular IFTTT platform. Was is hard to develop? YES! Was it worth it? Absolutely!
