If I get less than eight hours, I'll need a cold brew with coffee ice cubes and an afternoon Diet Coke chaser to function the next day. So I was pumped to test the queen-size Eight Mars+, a $1,399 Wi-Fi-connected mattress with temperature control that tracks how you sleep and connects to other smart home devices. I was eager to see if all this technology could help me get more restful sleep, or at least help me learn why I wake up groggy some mornings.

Eight sells smart mattress sets that include a normal mattress and Sleep Tracker cover, which is what makes Eight mattresses smart. The cover is filled with sensors that track events that happen while you sleep and it records your breathing and heart rates. It connects to a Wi-Fi-enabled hub, and you can access your sleep information through the Eight app (available for iOS and Android). Eight also sells the mattresses and Sleep Tracker separately -- the mattresses start at $349, and the Sleep Tracker is $399.

The Mars+ is one of Eight's smart bedroom sets that include a foam/coil hybrid mattress and tour bắc kinh thượng hải the Sleep Tracker. The best feature of the Mars+ is its connections to other smart home devices through its IFTTT channel, bắc kinh thượng hải which the Sleep Number 360 Smart Bed and Beautyrest SmartMotion Base 3 lack. IFTTT, which stands for "If this then that," is a free service that lets you create rules for different actions connecting products in the internet of things, apps and more. For example, through IFTTT, you can enable the warming feature of the Mars+ to turn on if your Nest thermostat drops below a certain temperature, or you can have your Philips Hue lights come on when the smart alarm in the Eight app goes off. Plus, tour bắc kinh thượng hải Eight has an Amazon Alexa skill, so you can ask your Alexa-enabled smart speaker how you slept the night before, or give a voice command to start heating the mattress.
