NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Nanit, the first smart baby monitor to use computer vision technology to measure sleep and parental visits, today announced the debut of Sleep Tips™, a first-of-its-kind capability that provides parents with personalized, scientifically-backed coaching tips on how to help their baby sleep better. To accompany this new feature, Nanit also announced the launch of an Amazon voice activated integration through Alexa Skills.
“By analyzing a baby’s sleep cycle and delivering actionable insights specific to your baby’s age, sleep behavior, and visit patterns, Nanit is the only monitor that puts Baby’s sleep development in your hands,” said Nanit co-founder & CEO Dr. Assaf Glazer. “We are thrilled to introduce these innovative new features at CES and look forward to continuing to help parents around the world improve their baby’s sleep and the overall sleep of the family.”
As the connected nursery category continues to grow, Nanit is leading the way by providing consumers with a smart baby monitor that combines research-based sleep science with computer vision technology–the same as used in self-driving cars—which has never been introduced to the home until now. Nanit’s patented advanced camera sensors provide sleep-deprived parents with valuable information to take into consideration when making decisions about their baby’s sleep habits. This is especially important when quality sleep is necessary for development in children.
New features introduced include:
Personalized Sleep Tips
Nanit’s smart sensors and computer vision-enabled camera learns a baby’s sleeping habits and their parent/caregiver’s visit patterns over time, and then sends parents alerts within the Nanit Insights app. This personalized advice is generated from data and research from a dream team of sleep experts, scientists and pediatricians. Based on a series of specific triggers and smart algorithms generated from individual user data, Nanit can detect certain sleep behaviors and parental visits (check-ins versus out-of-bed visits) that are less than optimal and generate a Sleep Tip to encourage parents to change behavior.

Amazon Alexa Skills
“Alexa, ask My Nanit what time did Lily fall asleep last night?” With Nanit’s Amazon Alexa integration, you can go hands-free. Ask Alexa how your baby slept, what time they woke up, or even how many times you took them out of the crib each night. With Alexa, Nanit is smarter than ever, making it easier for you to understand your baby’s night, so that baby – and the whole family – can get more sleep.
Thousands of parents have been using Nanit with their babies over the last year and continue to reap the benefits of the exclusive sleep insights, behavioral analysis, social sharing capabilities and nightly video summaries — all without a wearable component. Other key features include: a private social feed for parents and caregivers to communicate, a wall mount or floor stand option with easy installation, night light, fully integrated cable management system, humidity and temperature sensors, and the best view of your baby, bar-none. With the introduction of Nanit’s revolutionary Sleep Tips and Alexa Skills integration, parents can now make informed decisions with confidence by using actionable insights to help improve their baby’s sleep.
The new Sleep Tips feature is available through the Nanit Insights app, which offers 1-year subscription models at $10 per month or $100 per year for 30 days of video and sleep history. Nanit cameras range from $279 to $329 depending on the preferred mounting solution. Nanit’s Alexa Skill is available for free by enabling it via the Alexa Skills store.
