In a technological era where wearable devices have become integral for monitoring personal health, Ultrahuman is taking a pioneering step by introducing the Ultrahuman Home — a device designed to assess and improve the health of your living environment. This innovative offering from the Indian wearable startup is poised to be a game-changer in the world of smart home technology with its focus on health.

Connecting the Dots Between Health and Home

Ultrahuman, known for its smart ring called Ring Air, is expanding its ecosystem by introducing Ultrahuman Home, a sleek, metallic device reminiscent of a Wi-Fi router. This unobtrusive device, when placed in a room, goes beyond tracking personal health and delves into the health of your living space. The device uses an array of sensors to monitor natural and artificial light, air quality, noise levels, humidity, and smoke in your environment.

While Ultrahuman's wearables focus on quantifying personal health, this new static hardware will supplement the data collection process by considering the indoor environment. The idea is to provide users with a more comprehensive understanding of their overall well-being, factoring in the surroundings they spend time in.

Key Features

  • Light Monitoring: Ultrahuman Home can measure sunlight and UV levels, helping users determine if they are getting enough vitamin D for a healthy sleep pattern. It also monitors blue light exposure, which can disrupt melatonin production, affecting sleep.
  • Air Quality: The device detects particulate matter (PM), microscopic air pollutants that can harm the respiratory system and lead to chronic diseases. Monitoring PM levels can encourage users to invest in air-cleaning devices.
  • Humidity Control: The device tracks humidity levels in the room. It alerts users to low humidity, which can dry airways and impair mucociliary clearance, a protective process for the respiratory system. On the other hand, excessive humidity can promote the growth of microorganisms and increase the risk of respiratory infections.
  • Noise Levels: The device monitors environmental noise levels and counts sleep-disrupting events per hour. It can also detect snoring and breathing irregularities, including sleep apnea.
  • Smoke Sensor: The device serves as a smoke sensor, not only for detecting fire hazards but also for protecting against respiratory issues related to smoke inhalation.

Integration with Personal Health Data

One of the unique aspects of Ultrahuman Home is its ability to integrate data from the device with users' health data collected by Ultrahuman's wearables, such as the Ring Air. This integration allows for a holistic view of an individual's health by correlating health markers like sleep and stress with environmental factors like temperature, humidity, and light exposure.

The Ultrahuman Home runs on AC power.

Future Prospects: Home Automation Integration

CEO and founder of Ultrahuman, Mohit Kumar, envisions a future where the Ultrahuman Home will integrate with home automation systems. This would enable the device to make automated adjustments in response to user needs, such as dynamically adjusting room temperature to promote better sleep quality.

"In the future, you will see us integrating with protocols like IFTTT to actually get into home automation," Kumar explains. "We'll be able to do things like lowering the air conditioner by two degrees when the user is in deep sleep mode, optimizing humidity levels, and suggesting appropriate lighting."

Privacy and Pricing

Ultrahuman Home prioritizes user privacy by restricting the processing of audio data captured by the device to the device itself. It also offers a hardware button to turn off the microphone and airplane-mode-style toggles for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, giving users control over their data and exposure to radio frequencies.

The Ultrahuman Home device is set to launch in July with a price tag of $349, and like Ultrahuman's wearables, it will not require an ongoing subscription.
