Enjoy a comfort bed with a silent alarm feature

With the LINAK® hand control HC40, you not only get thoroughly tested usability and sublime design, in the advanced editions of HC40 FRAME™ and HC40 TWIST™ you also have the option of a gentle massage as an alternative to a screaming alarm clock first thing in the morning.

We are all familiar with the situation. Your alarm clock goes off early, and you are not fast enough to hit snooze or turn it off before your partner wakes up too. He gets slightly disgruntled as he has another hour before he needs to get up. A day getting off to a bad start.

This situation is easily prevented. With the LINAK® hand control HC40 Advanced, you can offer your customers a ‘Silent Alarm’*. It is quite simple really. When the alarm goes off, the only thing audible is the faint buzz of the massage motors, gently kneading your customer’s back until he or she is woken up.

Playing right into the offlining trend
A key part of developing the hand control HC40’s – FRAME™ and TWIST™ – was survey responses from more than a 1,000 users. Generally, they clearly requested a hand control with the RIGHT features – and not necessarily a lot of features. Only the ones you would need for situations encountered in the bedroom, were requested. Nothing more.

This may come from the notion of ‘JoMo’ (The Joy Of Missing Out) and the general offlining trend we see spreading today.

For some time, we have all used our smartphones to wake us up in the morning, setting the alarm before we go to sleep in the evening. This is why we included the ‘silent alarm’* as a standard feature in the HC40 Advanced editions. Everything you need is in the hand control, allowing the user to leave the smartphone outside the bedroom.

Brand yourself – and improve mornings for the users
With the HC40 Advanced, your brand can actively favour the offlining trend and even offer your customers ways of either upselling their beds or enjoying this feature themselves. A feature deemed truly valuable by end users. We know this – because we asked them!

Become a peace-keeping brand – get the ‘silent alarm’ function, and enjoy it every day.

*Silent alarm function is only available for systems with massage motors.

Silent alarm uses the massage motors to wake up the user instead of an audible alarm. Silent alarm uses the massage motors to wake up the user instead of an audible alarm.
