7 Ways to "Smarten Up" Your Bedroom

In today’s world of cutting edge wireless technology, there’s no shortage of  “smart” gadgets designed to streamline your home. And because your bedroom is the place you spend the most time recharging, it’s important to know what kinds of smart products are available to help you improve your sleep routine.

Since Brooklinen is all about upgrading the quality of sleep you’re getting, we rounded up some of the “smartest” bedroom devices on the market for your consideration. From an app-enabled eye mask to a pillow that analyzes your sleep cycle, here are seven ways to turn your bedroom into the smart and savvy space it deserves to be.

1. Smart Alarm Clocks

Looking for an app-enabled alarm clock that does it all in your bedroom? Intelligent alarm clocks, like the Beddi, can wirelessly stream music, control your bedroom temperature, and of course, wake you up—all from the privacy and comfort of your smartphone.  

2. Smart Sleep System 

In the market for a smart sound and light system that also tracks the quality of sleep you’re getting? “Smart” sleep systems, such as the Withings Aura, come equipped with a combination of sound and light effects that help you fall asleep faster, as well as a sleep tracker that connects to your smartphone to analyze your sleep habits.

3. Smart Pillow

Searching for a wireless way to sleep better at night? The ZEEQ Smart Pillow offers everything from built-in speakers and streaming services to an anti-snore alarm (that gently vibrates when you snore too loud) so both you and your partner can score some sound ZZZs.

4. Smart Light Bulbs

If you weren’t already hip to smart light bulbs, now’s the time to, well, smarten up. Bluetooth-enabled and voice compatible, smart LED bulbs—like the LIFX Mini A19—allow you to create a custom lighting scheme for your bedroom from your phone and will only set you back about 25 bucks.

5. Smart Sound System

Believe it or not, there are actually sound machines designed to help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Case in point: The Nightingale, which can plug into any wall outlet and connects to your smartphone (or Alexa) to create custom “sound blankets” that mask the annoying noise in your bedroom for an optimal sleep environment.

6. Smart Sleep Mask

Who knew a “smart sleep mask” was even a thing? Designed with “sleep-enhancing” technology, the Illumy Sleep and Wake Mask boasts a built-in, app-enabled light that dims and brightens to suit your sleep schedule.

7. Smart Nightlight 

Tired of bumping into things when you get up to use the bathroom at night? Bluetooth-enabled nightlights, like the Aumi, are outfitted with motion sensors (that provide light when they sense movement) and smart timers that you can control straight from your phone.

The market is filled with “smart” technology designed to improve your bedroom, and more importantly, the way you sleep. Whether with a Bluetooth-enabled alarm clock or an app-controlled nightlight, it pays to know what gadgets can help you streamline your bedroom, and ultimately, enhance your quality of sleep.
