About this project

 

 

 

The struggle is REAL
The struggle is REAL

 

You Can't Go Back - This is a key feature of the BedBud Alarm. I wanted to make sure that one could not return to bed after he/she arose from the bed. The sensors will remain active for a period of time of your choosing. This is done through the phone application.

No Snooze Button - I have never found an alarm clock that did not have a snooze button. I decided that the best way to kick the habit was to completely take it out of the equation.

Pressure Sensors - Simply calibrate the BedBud Alarm to the weight of the bed and then to your own weight. This also allows the BedBud Alarm to know if you have pulled it out from under the mattress.

Partner In Bed? Use Only One Sensor - As to not eject everyone from the bed. You can utilize only one sensor to cover your side of the bed while your partner sleeps on.

Multi-Day Alarms - Do you want to sleep in on Saturday? No problem! Your daily alarm schedule is fully customizable

Kick Your Phone Out Of The Room - Our phones are a terrible distraction and can negatively affect when or how you snooze off into sleep. Therefore, after calibration and setting your alarm schedule, you can chunk your phone into the other room.

Easy Install - Simply install 2 AAA batteries and plug in the power supply. Then place the sensor(s) under the mattress about where your torso will be, and you're ready to start kicking the Snooze Abuse out the door.

Risks and challenges

Suppliers, app development, and logistics are all ready to go. All that is needed is YOUR support to bring the BedBud Alarm to life.

I postponed the Kickstarter campaign for as long as I did because I was working to alleviate as many uncertainties as possible. I have teamed up with the correct companies on design, manufacturing, and fulfillment, and I feel we are ready to work through any hiccups that may arise.
