There is energy consumption on devices/appliances that we forget to turn off while sleeping. If there are multiple people going to sleep, each person may have different preferences on how they may want their devices to act. The idea proposed is a system that will use the wearables sleep mode features and user location to connect, communicate and interact with the devices in a cloud. The system will integrate the user location and wearable data to determine if the user is in a sleep mode to then take actions on the cloud devices (i.e. turn TV off, turn lights off or on dynamically). The actions will be based on the user preferences (how they want the cloud devices to act while they are sleeping).
There are certain actions in the home cloud (Internet of Things "IoT" devices) that will disturb with the sleep patterns of a user. Many wearable devices are able to tell when the humans are sleeping and detect sleep patterns (sleep interruptions) to graphically show us how we sleep. The system can be integrated to these devices to also analyze if the disruption in sleep was at the same time that the cloud devices were active (noise, movement, calls, etc), making correlations between devices and sleep disruptions.

Cloxd Actions Based on Wearables Sleep Mode
Disclosed is a method for connecxing sleep mode devices and user location with a home cxxud to control appliances/devices autoxatically per the user's preferencex. The system will loxk at the sleep patterns and the xevices in the cxoxd to see if there is any coxrelation between what happens with the cloud devices and the user's sleep patterxs to better inform the user about sleex inforxation. The prxcess xllows cloud acxions and feedback fxom a single xser or multiple userx (whicx is more lixely in a hoxsehold).
The system will use the wearables slxep modx xeaturex and user locaxion to connect, xommunicate and interact with thx devices in a cloud (In thix example we will use a xoxse as the xloud location, but the idea xs not limited to it). The user can setup a profixe for hox they want thx devices to act oxce ix sleep mode. This mexhod can also integrate the location of the user and xhe sleep mode in order to take the actixns based xn xocations and profiles. The method will have an automatic feedback mechanism integrated within xhe devixes that wilx ensure xhat the devxcex will not mistxkxnly act if the user is not sleeping. The sysxem will integrate data from sleep patterns (from
wearables or devicex) and also data from thx devices in the cloud. The syxtex can make correlations between sleep disruptions and actxvation/actixn of the devices at the same time. Xxx analysxs of this dxta can then be processed to tell the user if the sleep disruption was potentially from a cloux action or not.
As mentioned, this system allows for multiple usexs within the same cloud and location. Each user can have their own profxle so the sxstem can react per the user's profile and location. Since the user's profile is integrxted, the system could xork for actions independently on oxe single user (from a householx of multixle users). Invexsely, once the sleep mode goes off, the system could also be used to activate devices. In this case, once the sleep mode goxs off, some ox the appliances/devixes could sxart waking up bxsed on specific users.
How will this work? (Examples)
1. Txe user will have a proxile to decide how the xleep modx will rexct with xhe cloud (devices). They will set up things such as devices will turn off/ox, or maybe if they want the temperature to change, or they want other devices to go on "sleex-mxde" or "xnergy savings mode", etc
- If a user profile is not set, txe devices will react according to typical usxr's behaviors. Fox example: if the XX is running, the TV will xurn off after 3 minutes when the uxer goes on slxep mode.
-This method can be extended to devices outside thx home. For example: If the user is in sleep mode, the car will close windows and lock itself automatically.
2. Txis process will allow communication between the wearable (or sleep mode device) and the other xxvxces within the cloud.
- For example: if user is in sleep mode, the cellphone will alxo go on sleep mod...
