Explanation of the anti-snore function’s measuring method
Your privacy is important to us, so the app only measures the sound volume (dB) and no frequencies or sounds. So we won’t hear or record the sounds in your bedroom. No data will be stored or used for purposes other than activating your bed in case of snoring.
The Auping Connect app measures the sound volume (dB) in your bedroom. When this volume matches the volume of snoring, your bed will respond by raising the headboard slightly.
To distinguish what a snore is from what another sound is, the app listens to the volume, duration, and repetition of the sound. When a series of matching sounds of a certain volume is detected, the snore detection will activate.
The series of snoring sounds is measured for 1 minute. The series of snoring must take place within one minute. If you stop snoring again within a minute, the snore detection will not activate.
Ambient noise can also activate the snore detector. This is inevitable, but the algorithm in the app limits it as much as possible. Therefore, depending on the sensitivity you set, it may take up to one minute for the snoring to activate the anti-snore mode.
The sensitivity of the microphones in phones differs and is important for this anti-snore mode. The algorithm has been adapted to this and the anti-snore mode works well for most phones at a sensitivity of 50%. If you feel that the snore detection responds too fast or too slow, adjust the sensitivity.
