Smart home builders should always be focusing on comfortable, healthy and accessible living for their clients, and a good night’s sleep is certainly part of the overall package.
“We see the bedroom as the next frontier in consumer technology for the home,” says Natalie Dautovich, Ph.D., environmental scholar with the National Sleep Foundation (NSF).
We’ve gathered ten tech-centric tips to help promote better sleep in the smart home. And builders shouldn’t sleep on these facts, as Dautovich believes implementing smart sleep tech into the home from the get-go is a very important move to consider.
This is especially true for the healthy home, as sleep plays a major role in your clients’ health and wellbeing.
“Smart thermostats, lighting and window coverings in particular are wonderful additions that will have a positive impact on the homeowners’ sleep,” says Dautovich. “The digital health space is growing exponentially and sleep is a critical aspect of health.”
NSF expects the digital health trend to contribute significantly to an overall sleep aid market of more than $76.7 billion by 2019.
