Bed Occupancy Sensors have a multitude of purposes. They can be used to monitor and alert you if elderly family members who need assistance getting around are getting out of bed without assistance or have fallen. They can be used to as part of a pre-defined schedule. If you are a heavy sleeper and want a little extra nudge in the morning; you can set your bed sensor trigger your alarm, stereo or television to provide sound as a means of arousal. Take you automation to the next level by tying your bed sensor to your coffee maker. When you get up for the day, your favorite brew will automatically start brewing to save you time.
