Even infants are now reaping the benefits of technology, as a number of big names in the industry (including executives from Diapers.com and Philips Medical) joined forces in 2016 to create Nanit, the first-ever camera that measures sleep behavior and patterns.
And now, 18 months later, this 21st-century baby monitor has become even more tech savvy with the introduction of Sleep TipsTM, which provides parents with coaching tips to help their baby get a better night’s rest, and an Amazon Alexa integration.
“By analyzing a baby’s sleep cycle and delivering actionable insights specific to your baby’s age, sleep behavior, and visit patterns, Nanit is the only monitor that puts Baby’s sleep development in your hands,” said Nanit’s co-founder & CEO, Assaf Glazer.
“We [were] thrilled to introduce these innovative new features at CES and look forward to continuing to help parents around the world improve their baby’s sleep and the overall sleep of the family.”
Nanit uses machine learning to provide sleep insights, including comprehensive sleep reports that promise to measure a baby’s behavior as she sleeps, all without the need for any sort of wearable component.
It’s all thanks to the high-tech camera itself, which Nanit says has been “uniquely designed to track and analyze baby sleep patterns using smart algorithms.” The camera’s computer vision technology helps create benchmarks, count sleep interruptions, and contextualize milestones in individual sleep environments.
