According to their website, Lully Sleep is the leading company working today with a focus on improving children’s sleep, and they have recently created their Sleep Guardian product, which they say is they only non-medication product available on today’s market that can help children with sleep terrors.
Neuroon Intelligent Sleep Mask
Neuroon is the brain-child of two Polish entrepreneurs, Kamil Adamczyk and Janusz Frączek who met each other as students on an inter-university science project. The topic of their research was non-invasive brain monitoring, which incorporated sleep science.
Their fruitful collaboration turned into a business idea. They wanted to create a small, comfortable device that could challenge the dominance of the polysomnography (ie a clinical sleep testing).
The outcome of their partnership was Neuroon, the world’s first ‘intelligent’ sleep mask, sporting a range of sophisticated bio-sensors to monitor your body metrics at night.

Casper: Sleep Reimagined
All the comfort of memory foam, minus the body heat and plus a healthy bit of springiness. This unique mattress comprises a top comfort layer of premium latex with a support layer of high-density memory foam. Made from premium textiles in the USA and Belgium, the cover is breathable, flexible, resilient and fully removable for easy cleaning.
Balluga: The World’s Smartest Bed
A hybrid between bed and tech, the Balluga sets out to change the way that we sleep at night. Instead of using springs in the mattress, the Balluga utilizes a revolutionary new air-cushion system that always ensures that your spine is in the correct position by increasing or decreasing pressure as needed. Balluga also has an integrated climate control system that pushes ambient air from the room through the mattress and you can either heat the air in the winter or use the cool air.
Aura Connected Alarm Clock By Withings
The Withings Aura is an alarm clock, speaker and bedside lamp in a single device. Not only does it aim to help you get a good night’s sleep, it will also gently wake you up in the morning.
With the addition of the sleep sensor accessory that sits underneath your mattress, it can monitor and analyse sleep cycles too. However, this pushes the already expensive £200 price tag up to around the £300 mark. This seems a little high, especially when fitness trackers such as Withings’ own Pulse O2 can offer similar insight for £100.
As a perennially bad sleeper, I considered myself to be the ideal person to determine whether the Aura is really worth all that the money. Over several months of using the device, I can happily say that I dropped off to sleep far quicker than was the case with life before it. However, I was left disappointed by some other aspects of the Aura experience.
Nox Smart Sleep Light From Sleepace
Nox is a smart sleep light designed to monitor, track and improve sleep quality. The light combines Nox, a smart sleep light, and the Sleepace mobile application. Nox will help you fall asleep easily with soothing light and sound and wake up naturally with smart alarm. The Nox smart sleep light provides you with light and sound programs that will adapt to your personal body clock and positively impact your sleeping conditions. The light technology is designed to produce red wavelengths, which can raise the secretion of melatonin and delicate, soothing sounds are played to help you fall asleep easily. Sleepace App will tell Nox to turn off once you’ve fallen asleep.
S+ Personal Sleep Sensor By ResMed
If you can set it up properly, the ResMed S+ sleep sensor monitors all the zzz's you catch and provides one of the most personal and actionable plans to sleep better. The S+ sensor is a beautifully designed piece of hardware, although it might look out of place on your nightstand. S+ sensor's frame resembles a silvery rectangular box that's hollowed out to fit a smaller, white square box. Inside that removable white box is a combination of respiratory and biomotion sensors that monitor temperature, light and noise in your bedroom, as well as your motion and breathing while you sleep. On the back of the box is a port where you plug in the USB power cable.
FitSleep: Your Personal Lullaby
Having trouble falling asleep at night? FitSleep is a sleep tracker gadget that emits alpha waves to speed up the transformation to deep sleep, increases deep sleep duration and improves sleep efficiency. By using a range of sound waves, FitSleep scans how the user reacts to different frequencies. Like a lullaby, these waves calm the nervous system. FitSleep’s sensors detect changes and narrow down the wave range to specific frequencies, then emits the best waves to help that user get a better sleep. FitSleep is your Tech Lullaby.
Nora: The Smart Snoring Solution
The Smart Nora Smart Snoring Solution is an innovative anti-snoring device that’s unlike anything that is currently on the market such as mouthpieces, chinstraps, nose strips, nose clips, throat spray, herbal remedies, etc. In fact, with Smart Nora, you don’t wear, ingest or attach anything to your body. It’s an inflatable device that you slide under your pillow and it’s controlled by a small inconspicuous cordless transmitter, named a “pebble”, that rests on your nightstand and detects snoring. Once snoring is detected, the pebble transmits a signal to the inflatable device under your pillow and a silent pump is activated. This pump inflates or deflates the air pouch inside of the pillow which slowly raises or lowers your head up to 2″ over the course of 30 seconds. Smart Nora continuously listens and makes adjustments by raising or lowering your head until snoring is no longer heard. This adjustment process is ongoing throughout the night which keeps your snoring under control.
Awair Air Quality Monitor
Given the amount of time that we all spend at home, it’s important to keep your air fresh and clean to stay healthy. This is particularly true if you, or someone in your family, suffer allergies or asthma. Joining the rapidly growing ranks of air monitors is the Awair Air Quality Monitor. It tracks your indoor air quality via the provided app, offering tips and ideas on what to do when things turn bad.
Hands down, the Awair Air Quality Monitor is the best-looking air monitor that I’ve tested. Crafted from North American walnut, the Air Quality Monitor looks more like a fancy clock or high-end Bluetooth speaker than something for measuring the air quality of your room. And of course, each unit is 100% toxin-free.
Mooring: Ultralight Thermal Mattress Pad
The Mooring is an advanced and practical smart thermal mattress pad that comes in three models for different beds in different sizes. Each Mooring mattress consists of five layers including fabric layer, batting layer, Matrix, Temperature monitor system, silver fabric heating layer and touch-sense foil. The lightweight mattress can be placed under the sheets in order to monitor your body temperature, and the heating layer automatically adjusts the external temperature, making sure you can fall asleep and wake up with ease.
Furthermore, using dual temperature monitoring and control, the Mooring has the ability to match different sleep patterns, so you can share the smart mattress pad with your partner. In addition to monitoring your body temperature, the Mooring also tracks ambient temperatures, humidity, noise and light levels, sleep cycle heart rate and breathing rate. Using built-in WiFi, the smart mattress pad wirelessly communicates with your smartphone, so you can handle all your sleep data via its custom app, remotely control the mattress or set the alarm time.
Pure Cool Link Air Purifier by Dyson
The Dyson Pure Cool Link Air Purifier has been designed to automatically purify air and remove 99.97% of allergens and pollutants, even ones as small as 0.3 microns. In auto mode, the purifier will automatically monitor indoor air quality and adjust airflow accordingly; once the air is clean, it stays clean. If it’s hot, the device can provide personal cooling and purified air throughout the room. But there’s no need for two machines – the purifier’s more powerful settings will generate smooth, long-range airflow to cool you.
