IHome entered the health & wellness space with the introduction of Zenergy, a line of portable and bedside sleep therapy machines designed to promote healthier sleep cycles by utilizing sound and light therapy techniques. Endorsed by Michael Breus, PhD, aka “The Sleep Doctor,” Zenergy leaves users feeling more energized during the day following a quality night of rest, according to iHome.

The Sound Therapy feature uses specially recorded and engineered sounds to cancel out distracting noises and help alleviate racing minds, leading to better sleep at night and more focus during the day. Light Therapy, meanwhile, helps to align our circadian rhythms, or internal clocks, by simulating the changing wavelengths of light throughout the day that would naturally govern it. Having exposure to these wavelengths of light at the appropriate times can trigger subtle biological responses like increased melatonin production and a more relaxed heart rate at night, and increased energy and improved mood during the day.

“After spending a lifetime as a Diplomate of the American Board of Sleep Medicine, I have made it my life’s work to evaluate, identify, and aid in sleeping disorders, Breus says in a release. “After reviewing iHome’s new Zenergy products, I am convinced that proper use will result in users achieving a more restful night’s sleep.”

The Zenergy line debuts with two core products:

  • Designed for use in the home, the iZBT10 helps users sleep restfully and wake energized with customizable combinations of ten sound therapy presets and ten specially designed 1000Lux, 360-degree light therapy and color-blending programs. Additionally, the iZBT10 will feature Bluetooth connectivity, FM Radio, dual alarms and sleep timers, and a USB charging port for mobile devices.
  • A CES 2017 Innovations Award honoree, the lightweight, portable iZBT5 is designed to help travelers rest easy. Boasting six sound therapy presets and six light therapy and color-blending programs, the Bluetooth-enabled, rechargeable device is the perfect companion for travel, office, school studies, or any area in the home. Comes complete with charging accessories and a removable lanyard for convenience.
  • Both devices are enhanced by the iHome Zenergy App which allows for full wireless control of all Zenergy features, complete customization of alarms and sleep timers, and a deeper understanding of the science behind Zenergy.

“This new line of app-enhanced sleep therapy machines further showcases our strategy to expand iHome into new product categories—in this case, the wellness space,” says Evan Stein, director of Marketing for SDI Technologies. “We have taken our 60 years of knowledge in the audio category and incorporated light and sound therapy, thus delivering products that will be able to improve the quality of life for our customers.”
