Samsung SleepSense

Samsung makes improving the quality of your sleep simple, with SleepSense. This smart sleep-tracking device uses contactless sensors to analyze heart rate, respiratory rate, and movement while you sleep. Just slip it under your mattress, drift off to dreamland, and wake up in the morning with a summary of your sleep activity.

With SleepSense and SmartThings Classic working together, you can automate your lights to gently brighten as you naturally wake up, or you can monitor an elderly loved one’s habits to ensure they enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

Note: SleepSense is supported in SmartThings Classic.
