I just wanted to provide a quick follow up to how these pads have done for me. I use the IFTTT trigger and it works 100% for me. I really wish there was a local API, but with that said since the IFTTT trigger has worked perfectly, its fine for now. Still hoping they change their stance on the in/out of bed API
I dont actually even look at the sleep tracking, so I cannot comment on how well it does. I use the triggers to turn on a virtual switch for me and for my wife. These pads sometimes come down to as low as $70. It might be a bit just to monitor if you’re in bed or not, and no local API, but… super easy.
I use these now to trigger my goodnight routines and to turn off bedside lamps after we get into bed. I also use them as conditions for other automations, like if one of us is in bed, dont turn on the bedside lamps.
