This new adjustable bed is smart enough to combat snoring and give massages

Typically, when you think of an adjustable bed base, you think of something fairly static. The top can be moved upward to give your body a reclining position, and some adjustable bases can elevate your knees for extra comfort and relief for those of us with tight or sore lower backs. However, one new adjustable bed base is elevating the idea of the adjustable bed base.

The Layla Adjustable Base has all of your typical adjustable bed base features, such as giving sleepers the ability to elevate the shoulders and the knees, but it’s also giving you many, many more functions, especially if you choose the adjustable plus model.

If you wake up from a deep sleep in the middle of the night and want to elevate your shoulders or knees to help you get back to sleep, the last thing you’ll want to do is get out of bed, likely waking up your partner if you share a bed, and once the bed is in the position you’d like, you’re wide awake. This adjustable bed base, however, will move at the touch of a button. It comes with both a remote and an app for your smartphone, and the top of the base even retracts a bit to ensure it doesn’t scrape your wall when it returns to a flat position.

Switch to Zero Gravity mode, inspired by NASA engineering, which gives you the feeling of weightlessness and helps you relax your spine and muscles, or anti-snore position, which puts the body in a position to open the airway and quell snoring. The base also integrates with Alexa and Google Home, so simply call out the position you’d like your bed in so it’s ready before you even get into your bedroom.

Sleeping preferences vary widely, which is why it can be difficult to find the perfect mattress for you, but for those of us who work in an office environment and have tighter backs, necks and shoulders from hunching over a desk all day, sleeping in a reclining position with the knees up can have a plethora of benefits. It helps ease tension in the lower back and encourages better blood flow throughout the night. It increases the chances that you’ll wake up feeling relaxed, comfortable and pain-free.

But the reclining position isn’t the only health benefit this bed base offers. The plus model of this base comes with a vibrating mode that has a motor that gently massages your head, feet, or both. Let the massage lull you to sleep, and you can set an auto-off timer so it doesn’t run all night long. Both the base and plus models come with four USB charging ports, two on each side of your bed, so you can keep your phone charged up and close by as you sleep.

The plus model also features under-bed lighting. This is useful for sleepers who often wake up and need to get out of bed at night and need lighting without turning on your bright bedside lamp.

Both the base and plus models come in twin XL, queen, king, and split king sizes. The split king is ideal for co-sleepers on different schedules; just purchase two twin XL Layla Mattresses and one of you can stay up to read while the other turns in early. The standard model starts at $899 for a twin XL or $1,398 for a king and split king, and the adjustable plus starts at $1,099 for a twin XL and goes up to $2,198 for the king and split king.

With the holiday season in full swing, this is a great gift for yourself or a loved one, whether they simply want to sleep better or they love having the latest technology, both of which the Layla Adjustable Base can provide.

Turns out, sleep mode in smart fans isn’t just a gimmick
The PuriCare AeroTower acts as a conversation piece in a room.

I tried out the Dreo Smart Fan earlier this year. Among its many features is one called "sleep mode," which purportedly lowers the volume of the fan without impacting performance. I didn't think much of it; after all, how loud could a fan actually be? And then fall arrived.

For those of you who aren't familiar with weather in the Southern U.S., you can experience three seasons in a single day. It might start out as sweater weather in the morning, then be warm enough to swim in the afternoon -- only to plummet overnight. It's impossible for a thermostat to keep up.

Ever wished you could use your smartphone to control your smart home, beyond just pulling up an app to turn something on or off? We're now starting to see companies create actual functionality around the Matter initiative. Fluid, a relative newcomer to the smart home field, is building a service on top of Matter to allow you to control smart devices around your home simply by pointing your phone at the device.

Fluid calls this new service Fluid One. You can point your phone at a device, and it will automatically and immediately show you options to control said device. The service also allows for location-based automation and gesture controls. For example, imagine walking around your home and having lights automatically turning on or off depending on how close you are to them.

Vivint’s new updates make its smart home system even smarter
vivint doorbell outdoor camera pro updates  lifestyle 1

I've had a Vivint smart home for about 18 months, ever since reviewing the Vivint Doorbell Camera Pro and the Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro. For the most part, I find them to be incredibly smart and useful. Plus, the integration with Google and Philips Hue in particular up the "whole-home smart home" game when I can unlock my front door and have my lights turn on. This week, Vivint announced updates to the Doorbell Pro and Outdoor Camera Pro, and it's great to see that "smart" extends to the company itself. Let's dive in.
On-device recording
Vivint upgraded all of its camera products -- the Vivint Doorbell Camera Pro, Outdoor Camera Pro, and Indoor Camera Pro -- in a pretty significant way. Vivint added on-device recording for 24/7 monitoring for up to 10 days. All that footage is stored on the device, which is significant in one keyway. The previous generation of the cameras streamed footage in real-time from the cameras to a separately purchased smart hard drive. From there, if you wanted to review the footage, it would stream back over Wi-Fi to Vivint's servers, and back to your phone.

Put simply, this can cause a significant hit on your home Wi-Fi's bandwidth. With the new cameras, the footage is stored on a secure SD card locally and only transmitted when it's being streamed or viewed. Meanwhile, onboard AI will continue generating smart clips detailing what happens (people, packages, etc). Plus, aside from freeing up bandwidth on your home network, local recording storage also works even when your Wi-Fi is down. All told, it's enough to get me pretty geeked, so I'll be excited to test these things out. That's the biggest news that covers all the devices, so let's get into each device in particular.
