Online mattress retailer Eight adds Alexa integration
September 14, 2017,
NEW YORK-- Online mattress retailer Eight said that all of its smart sleep-tech products will now integrate with the Amazon Echo and Dot via an Alexa skill. The company’s recently expanded Smart Mattress collection and non-wearable Smart Mattress Cover will be enabled for voice control commands thanks to the new skill via the Amazon Alexa app, officials said.
“With more than 10 million Amazon Echo and Dot users, we saw a demand for a seamless smart home experience to be brought also to the bedroom,” said Matteo Franceschetti, CEO of Eight. “Eight is leading the sleep industry into the era of personalized and optimized sleep, and our integration with Alexa was a natural progression for our products. By adding this capability, we are offering customers a fully integrated sleep system that fits unintrusively into their lives.”
Eight's new Mars+ is a smart bedding offering.
Through Alexa voice commands on the Amazon Echo and Dot, Eight Sleep users can learn theirs or their partner’s sleep score, gather their entire sleep data from the night before (hours slept, percentage of tossing and turning, percentage of deep sleep, etc.),\ and turn bed warming on/off on each bed side, the company said.
Eight’s products are available on eightsleep.com, Costco.com, BestBuy.com and at select Best Buy retail locations.
