Sleep Tracking Without a Wearable

I wanted a way to track sleep without having to use a "wearable", because I thought that would be preferable for the "loved one" I was researching this for. Here is the solution I evaluated. It worked well for me.

Hello Frank
Great articles here. I just wanted to mention that I use the TochTech sleep sensor as well as their other products for my clients (I provided executive home management and health care and housing navigation) I think their products are exceptional and their reporting and trend lines are very helpful.
