Beddi is a next-generation smart alarm clock that helps you start your day off more easily and efficiently.
Mornings are hectic. They start off rough with the blaring sound of your alarm, most likely coming from the unpleasant preset tones programmed in your phone. But the biggest challenge is actually getting up, which is even more difficult when you didn’t have a good night’s sleep. Then you have to worry about leaving the house on time, hoping the traffic isn’t too bad. By the time you’re out of the door, you’ve realized you didn’t have enough time for your morning cup ‘o joe. If only there was a way to make the early hours of your day not so bad…
Meet Beddi, an app-enabled alarm clock and Bluetooth speaker that includes over 20 features to make your morning and evening routines flow easily. Developed by Los Angeles-based startup Witti, Beddi boasts a minimalistic design and perfectly complements any home. The gadget combines all the elements you’d typically expect from a smart alarm clock, along with a Bluetooth speaker, USB charging hub, a night light and even a white noise generator to offset loud environment. It also has the capabilities to connect to your devices with its three smart buttons, allowing you to control things around your home with just one click. Each button has three modes, single click, double click and long press, giving you a total of nine different commands.
Not only does Beddi automatically sync with your phone through its accompanying iOS and Android app, it’s super simple to configure, intuitive to use and lets you set multiple alarms. You can turn out of bed to your favorite Spotify playlist as your morning alarm, along with a wake up light, and have dashboard display and voice announcement for weather and traffic updates. With its Google Maps integration, you’ll periodically receive alerts for your morning commute, informing you when you need to leave to arrive to work on time. To ease the hustle and bustle with city living, Beddi can even summon an Uber for you with nothing more than a push of a smart button.
And when it’s time to hit the hay, the unit is equipped with a white noise generator to keep you snoozing soundly through the night. Beyond that, you can set your own Spotify station or choose from a default selection of sounds, such as the subtle noise of a fan, the crashing of ocean waves or the chirping of wildlife in a forest, to help you drift off to sleep. As you catch some Zs, an integrated timer will turn off the sound after a predefined time period.
If you’re not impressed yet, then maybe this will do the trick. Since it knows your sleep habits, when you wake up and go to sleep, Beddi can automatically regulate your smart appliances. With its customizable and programmable smart buttons, Beddi can start your coffee machine, adjust your Nest thermostat or Philips Hue lights, send a text message and make a phone or Skype call. The best part? You can do this all without ever leaving the room or reach for another device. Heck, Beddi might as well be your new butler!
Beddi employs classic Bluetooth for its high quality sound and music, while Bluetooth 4.0 to pair with your phone. Additionally, the nightstand accessory comes with an auxiliary jacks and two USB ports for charging tablets. Unlike other docks, with Beddi you won’t have the annoying problem of your phone not fitting in the dock with its case. The 17mm slot will fit most cases, and is compatible with iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s+, as well as Galaxy S4, S6 and other 5.5″ screens.
