Sevenhugs hugOne Sleep Tracking System Latest 2020 updated review.
The hugOne is a sleep monitor that tracks sleep patterns to help families consistently rest better If you do have sleep problems, then it could be well worth trying.
Overview of the HugOne
The hugOne is a pretty smart idea that seems to have some execution issues. As with most other multi-purpose sensors the air quality issue is a nice-to-have especially if you have one of the many devices that come with such a feature.
If you do have sleep problems, then it could be well worth trying. HugOne could be part of the solution, and for a family could be a fun way to help get the children to bed on time, but as far as the science bit goes, it doesn’t do half as much as it could.
Best Features of hugOne include
- Uses tiny sensors that can be placed under your bed
- Helps your entire family sleep better with individualized apps
- Works with Alexa, Echo, Philips Hue, and Nest
- Safe from electronic transmission when sleeping
The benefits of hugOne include:
- Tracking light sleep, deep sleep, awake phase – with an algorithm that has been developed to adapt to kids’ sleep.
- Monitoring of temperature and humidity in the bedroom as well as indoor air quality for the main living space – creates the ideal environment for the most restful night’s sleep.
- Individualized by a smart alarm clock on the app as hugOne learns your sleep cycle and automatically sets and sounds to when the best moment in your sleep cycle is identified
- Freedom from wearing any device – simply place the sleep sensor in the corner of your mattress under the sheet and it goes to work monitoring your sleep cycles.
- Safe from electronic transmissions when sleeping – when the sleep sensor senses a presence in bed, it shuts off its electronic transmissions and starts recording sleep data until the user leaves the bed, at which time the data is sent to the app.
- Shareable with the whole family – can connect up to eight miniHugs to the hugOne base.
What Else Can The HugOne Do?
The HugOne helps you to let your kids know when it’s bedtime. Like a reverse alarm clock, the HugOne glows.
Each of the MiniHugs sends a signal to the HugOne which then tells your smartphone app if your child tosses and turns during the night. If your child leaves the bed, the HugOne tells you immediately.
The HugOne also monitors the bedroom’s temperature, humidity, and indoor air quality to help maintain a healthy environment.
It will tell you if you maybe need to open a window to let some fresh air in or whether the room is too cold for a good night’s rest.
All data coming from the Minihugs will be transmitted to your app so you can have access to all the data regarding your family’s sleep patterns. The app is available for both iOS and Android.
The app allows you to keep track of your sleep times and your ‘sleep score’. One of the reasons you wake up woozy and unrefreshed after an alarm goes off is because you wake up in the middle of a sleep cycle.
HugOne offers an innovative alarm that helps identify the best moment in your sleep cycle for you to wake up. This way you wake up at the best possible time without having to be late for work.
OneHug is also compatible with Phillips Hue light bulbs and Nest Learning thermostat.
You can connect it to a smart thermostat to adjust your home to your preferred sleeping temperature. It will automatically go back to your preferred daytime temperature when you wake up.
You can also utilize your smart bulbs to help you fall asleep and wake up naturally. The HugOne can work with the Philips Hue smart bulbs to simulate sunset light.
Your Philips Hue lights will slowly fade off to darkness as you fall asleep. Then, it can reverse the process in the morning with a simulated sunrise.
Design and Ergonomics
The standard HugOne system comes with a base station and two ‘minihug’ sensors in pink and blue. If you’ve got a large family, the base station can accommodate up to eight sensors
The base station is designed to stand upright on a desk or night stand in the bedroom. It connected to your Wifi network, and in turn uses a proprietary wireless protocol to talk to each minihug sensor.
Minihug sleep sensor
The minihugs is placed in the corner of you or your child’s bed, under the sheets, near the pillow. For children under 13, SevenHugs include a mattress strip which attaches to the minihugs to increase the sensitivity of the sensor.
Environmental sensors and smart home integration
As well as sleep tracking, the base unit contains built-in sensors to monitor the home environment. Using something called a ‘Volatile Organic Compound’, it can track the air quality in your bedroom, as well as humidity and temperature.
As part of the design ethos, the SevenHugs HugOne was made to be as simple as possible to set up. As with every sleep tracking product, you’ll need to set up and configure your device first from your phone.
SevenHugs works on both Android and iOS devices, so setup involves downloading the app, signing up for an account with SevenHugs and entering a few details such as gender, height and age.
