    Using Microsoft Band to detect sleep and controlling home appliances.



    Pretty neat and useful, Be nice to have it set to turn on a certain time as well. Not sure you want lights on as soon as you wake up, lol Because the Band shows people waking up a few times a night.

    Thanks, very neat indeed. I really like the subtlety of blending motion sensing with HR monitoring. The only thing that will prevent him from winning the Nobel is: I'd like the lights to turn off BEFORE I fall asleep, not after. LOL In that case all we need is motion sensing...though I can imagine lots of situations where I'm relatively still for a few minutes (e.g. reading) and not sleeping.

    I still kinda think the Clapper may be the better solution for controlling lights.

    Interesting idea - but.....

    I seriously doubt that you can use sleep monitoring with the device since sleep mode tends to cut off all communication.

    Secondly, what does that do to the battery consumption - both in the phone and the band?

    Personally, I'd like the lights to react to entering/exiting sleep mode.
