I’ve seen many strange things with app support from Apple’s AirTags to smart robot vacuums. But never have I encountered an app for a blanket before. Well, it’s going to change with the introduction of Warmee.
Warmee is exactly that – a set of app-enabled bed companions which can be heated with just a few taps of your smartphone or tablet. I already mentioned the blanket but there’s also a smart heated throw pillow and a mattress pad, just in case you need that extra warmth in the coming cold months.
All three of these products use the company’s Ultra-Thin Invisiwire technology, which incorporates super-thin stainless steel wires to run a current through your beddings and pillows. Unlike other heating apparatuses, these wires won’t poke or prod you whilst you’re sleeping.
The wires are insulated with MFA polymer, making them resistant to oxidation and moisture. Apart from being impervious to your sweat and body odor, the insulation also makes Warmee products machine washable.
You can choose between any of the 10 heat settings and set them to pre-heat at a specific time. Prior to that, make sure the blanket, mattress pad, and pillow are plugged into a socket so they can heat up. Once you’ve sorted out everything, you’re good to go.
But what about that app support, eh? Simple. It allows you to adjust any and all of your Warmee products on the fly. And if frequently tapping your phone isn’t your thing, you can pair your Warmee items with your Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
Further, whether you’re using the app or your virtual assistant, Warmee products have a built-in auto shut-off feature that saves energy and prevents your house from burning down from an accidental fire.
Seeing as winter is fast approaching, it isn’t surprising to see Warmee is already fully funded on Kickstarter. As of now, the products have a backing of US$13,882, just a little above its US$10,000 goal. Nonetheless, if you’re one of those folks who still want to push this project further, you can find more about these app-enabled warming devices on the Warmee Kickstarter page.
