You probably don’t associate the colossal Consumer
Electronics Show (CES) with a good night’s sleep. But if
Cambridge Sound Management and Ayla Networks have their way, that’s
exactly the association you’ll make.
At CES 2017, Cambridge is officially launching its Nightingale product, the world’s first
smart home sleep system. What does that mean? It means sleeping soundly in a
room immersed in perfectly tuned sound blankets, created by two separate units
that plug into standard power outlets in your bedroom. It also means a sleep
system that can connect with other smart home devices to make sure you don’t
sleep through things that you shouldn’t—such as dangerous storms, fires,
break-ins, or delivery of that important package you need to sign for.
Powered by Ayla IoT platform technology, Nightingale takes
its acoustically advanced sound masking technology to the next step, integrating
via the popular IFTTT (IF This Then That) web-based service with Internet of
Things-based smart home products such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home Hue, Nest,
and Ring. In this way, Nightingale not only creates an ideal auditory
environment for good sleep, it also can be programmed to deliver alerts through
its speakers or to turn itself off so you can hear a doorbell or weather
“We think about what we’re doing as breaking a new kind of
sound barrier: the sounds that prevent us from getting the deep, restful sleep
we need to be healthy and energetic during our waking hours,” says Christopher
Calisi, CEO of Cambridge Sound Management. “We’re excited to celebrate the next
milestone of our business by beginning pre-sales of Nightingale at CES 2017.”
Originally funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign,
Cambridge Sound Management will accept pre-orders for Nightingale at its
meetnightingale.com website, beginning on
January 5, 2017—the first day of CES 2017. Kickstarter orders will ship in
January, and pre-orders are expected to ship in February.
