  • Patent number: 10653856
    Abstract: A sleep assistance device is provided-for, including a housing, a contactless biometric sensor, a processor, memory, and a speaker. The processor may detect a user's sleep state by reading signals from the contactless biometric sensor based on at least one of a detected change in heartrate, body movement, or respiration. The processor may also arrange a soundscape including individual sound records representing sounds associated with the selected soundscape based, at least in part, on the detected sleep state of a user.

  • Publication number: 20200069244
    Abstract: A sleep assessment device is provided for, including biometric sensors for detecting a heart rate, respiration, or movement of a user. The device detect a user's sleep state by reading signals from the biometric sensor and logs detected information in a sleep record. The device then compares the logged information to a thumbprint of sleep patterns indicative of sleep disorders and outputs an indication of potential sleep disorders based on the comparison.

  • Publication number: 20200068246
    Abstract: A mobile device is configurable by a controller to remotely operate a target controllable device, the controller and the target controllable device being part of a hospitality media system. A communication module establishes a connection to the controller and performs data transfer between the mobile device and the controller. A customization module receives customization information from the controller and customizes a user interface of the mobile device accordingly. A status information regarding the target controllable device is received from the controller and displayed on the user interface of the mobile device. A user of the mobile device thereafter issues a command via the user interface to the controller, the command containing instruction intended for the target controllable device. The controller receives the command and operates the target controllable devices in dependence upon instruction contained in the command received from the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 10517527
    Abstract: A sleep scoring device is provided for, including a contactless biometric sensor, a processor, memory, and a microphone. The sleep scoring device may detect a user's sleep state by reading signals from the contactless biometric sensor based on at least one of a detected change in heartrate, body movement, or respiration, and log the biometric information. The sleep scoring device may also generate a sleep score for a sleep session based on the latency of the sleep session, the number of detected waking events, the amount of REM sleep, the amount of deep sleep, or the number of times the snooze button was pressed during the sleep session.

  • Publication number: 20190381270
    Abstract: A sleep assistance device is provided-for, including a contactless biometric sensor, a processor, memory, and a speaker. The processor detects a user's sleep state by reading signals from the contactless biometric sensor. The processor may then initiate a wind-down routine upon detecting a sleep-readiness state, including playing relaxing sounds or playing a respiration entrainment sound. The processor may also play noise-masking sounds upon detecting that a user has fallen asleep and seamlessly transition between the sounds played during the wind-down routine and the noise-masking sounds.

  • Patent number: 10499102
    Abstract: A plurality of controllable devices is in communication with and remotely operable by a media system controller. A storage device stores associations between respective passkeys and one or more of the controllable devices that are currently associated therewith. The controller generates a passkey in response to an occurrence of a first event associated with a particular one of the controllable devices, stores in the storage device an association between the passkey and the particular one of the controllable devices, and the passkey is displayed by the particular one of the controllable devices. The passkey is entered into a mobile device by a user. The controller receives the passkey from the mobile device, finds the particular one of the controllable devices currently associated with the passkey, and transfers commands and status information between the particular one of the controllable devices and the mobile device until an occurrence of a second event.

  • Publication number: 20190208243
    Abstract: A hospitality media system includes a media system controller and a plurality of media devices located in a plurality of rooms and coupled to the media system controller. Each room has one or more in-room media devices located therein for performing a media function. A connection port allows a user of a room to establish data communications between the media system controller and a guest device. The media system controller is coupled to the connection port and configured to catalogue guest content available on the guest device to thereby form a guest content list, associate the guest content with one or more associated rooms at least including the user's room, and perform the media function utilizing content selected from the guest content list only on the in-room media devices located within the one or more associated rooms.

  • Publication number: 20170189977
    Abstract: A perpendicular axis saw blade includes a blade body with an outer blade body edge to which a plurality of primary saw teeth are affixed at spaced intervals to form a primary teeth per inch (TPI). The blade also includes a plurality of primary gullets. Each primary gullet is located between two of the plurality of primary teeth and has a primary gullet depth and primary gullet capacity. Each of the plurality of the primary teeth includes a primary tooth tip, a primary tooth leading edge, a primary tooth trailing edge. Secondary saw teeth affixed at spaced intervals to the primary tooth trailing edge or at least one primary gullet form a secondary TPI. The primary teeth cut a workpiece during a machining operation. A user or system can use the secondary teeth to cut through a foreign object detected in the workpiece without damaging any primary teeth.
