Somnus / alarm clock


Getting up and going to bed with Somnus
Everybody needs the right amount of sleep for a healthy life and a successful day.
Somnus supports you in going to bed and getting up.The relation between the time you sleep and the time you are awakened is set up and visualized on the analog display.
Somnus knows when it is time to go to bed and gives your room a comfortable lightning.
In the morning you wake up caused by a bright light.You can decide yourself how you get in bed and how somnus wakes you up on your electrical outlet.An infrared lamp for a heated up bed.A remote control which turns off your devices.A rope winch which steals your blanket.
