There is no limitation to the number of devices that can be used with the same account. You can use multiple devices; however, only one device can be connected to a sensor at a time. Two, separate accounts are required if you are using the LIVE+ Remote Care application to view a loved one’s wellness data. One account will be for you to use LIVE+ Remote Care on your device and a second, different account must be registered for your loved one who is sleeping on the LIVE sensor.

No, only one sensor can be linked to each user account at a time. In case a new sensor is linked to an existing user’s account, the previous (old) sensor will no longer be connected to the user. If a sensor was previously associated with another user account, the new user will not have access to the previous user’s historical data. Sensed and recorded data is only available in a user’s app and is only associated with the registered account username and password. The sensor does not save any personal data.
LIVE works under most mattresses up to 20 inches (50.8 cm) thick and bed configurations. If you have a mattress and box spring, place the sensor between the top mattress and box spring. If you have a single mattress on top of slats, place the sensor such that it is resting securely on top of a slat. If your slats are much narrower than the sensor and the sensor is not stable, place a thin supporting board between the sensor and the slats. LIVE's sensor is not compatible with air or gel mattresses or waterbeds. Mechanical vibrations such as from a massager will interfere with LIVE's sensing capability. Furthermore, for optimal results you should not be in direct contact with the sensor. A mattress, mattress pad, or mattress cover should always be placed as a barrier between you and the device. Live’s special algorithms and unique sensor technology enable it to be used in a double bed or larger, as long as the instructions for sensor placement are followed. For additional information on sensor placement, please check the FAQs or the User Guide. Still not sure your bed and mattress is compatible? Send us a message at customerservice@livebyearlysense.com and we’ll help you out!
Absolutely! Live accurately tracks one person while two people are in bed. If both you and your partner want to be tracked, two sensors are required. A single sensor will only connect to one mobile device at a time. The sensing range is 16 inches (40 cm) from the sensor. To help Live differentiate between the two people in bed, the sensor should be placed under the bed mattress according to the User Guide instructions.
Here are some tips on how to get the best sensing and accuracy from Live:

  • Always place the sensor such that the power cord faces outward toward the nearest edge of your bed, parallel to the headboard

  • If you share the bed, position the sensor such that the logo is facing up and the sensor is below your outside shoulder

  • If you are sleeping alone, position the sensor at shoulder level, in the middle of your back, in the area that you are most likely to sleep


Live has been designed to accurately measure the person directly above the sensor. Thus, if someone other than you sleeps over the sensor such as children or a pet, they can be monitored. This can impact your historical results.
LIVE has been designed to accurately measure the person directly above the sensor. Thus, if someone other than you sleeps over the sensor such as children or a pet, they can be monitored. This can impact your historical results. Ensure the sensor is properly placed to minimize detection of another person in bed. To help LIVE differentiate between two people in bed, the sensor should be placed under the bed mattress according to the User Guide instructions.
No. The sensor will not function if it is not connected to the power supply. In order to ensure measurements, please verify that the sensor is safely connected to the power outlet. On the sensor, a green LED indication light will turn on to indicate power
Live is highly accurate and will record you as long as it senses you are in bed. The sensing range is 16 inches (40 cm) from the sensor. If you have a big bed or you tend to roll during the night, you may get too many out of bed/awakenings.
To improve your readings, try to place the sensor in the region you spend the most time and at your shoulder level. You can experiment with the sensor’s placement by watching the Sleep Monitoring screen’s heart and breathing rate values. When there is a good signal, the heart and lung symbols will be brightly colored and beating. If you move out of range of the sensor, you will see the heart and lung symbols will become grayed out and stop beating. This means the sensor has lost your signal. Each morning, look for out of bed periods in the sleep stages graph. If you see several out of bed sessions, but you know you were in bed, try moving the sensor. After a few nights you should be able to learn where you frequently sleep and minimize these inaccuracies. Please consult the User Guide for more information on how to position the sensor.
No, LIVE will not disrupt your partner’s or your own sleep. LIVEis completely non-contact, passive and silent. Since the sensor is placed under the bed mattress, neither you nor your partner will feel a thing while you are in bed. LIVE silently transmits data to your mobile device via Bluetooth, so you won’t hear anything either. Regardless of how heavy or light you may sleep, be confident Live will not interrupt your nightly routine or sleep!
If you want to accurately track your wellness and sleep, then LIVE is right for you! LIVE utilizes a small, thin, contact-free sensor that is placed under your bed mattress and linked to a mobile app. Using the mobile app, you can view your wellness data including heart and breathing rates and stress while you lie in bed. Upon waking each morning, you will have a complete wellness report including your nightly monitored continuous vital signs, stress level, sleep quality, and information about your sleep cycles. You will also get a daily sleep tip to help you improve night after night. With LIVE+ Remote Care Access, you can view your loved one’s sleep and wellness data from your own mobile device.
To use the sensor, ensure it is plugged into a power supply and the green LED indicator light is on. Then pair the sensor with your Bluetooth enabled phone or tablet after downloading the free LIVE by EarlySenseTM mobile app. A blue LED indicator light will turn on indicating successful Bluetooth pairing. There is no battery in the Live by EarlySenseTM sensor.
LIVE will send you alerts if your heart or breathing rate exceeds a predetermined threshold for at least 15 minutes.
The default heart rate value is set at 125 BPM(beats per minutes) and the default breathing rate is set at 30 Br/Min. If you are unsure of what rate to set these alerts, we recommend using our default values,but you can always set the right thresholds for you in the app settings.
No, LIVE works by connecting with your phone’s Bluetooth. Your phone must remain on for while LIVE is tracking your wellness data. You may notice your phone’s battery will drain or run out of power while using LIVE for extended time periods such as during sleep. We highly recommend charging your phone while the app is in use to ensure continuous measurements. If your phone is off, no data will be collected.
Your phone needs to remain within the sensor’s Bluetooth connectivity range. Bluetooth connectivity is essential for recording data from LIVE. If Bluetooth connectivity is lost or not active on your smartphone, data cannot be tracked and you will not receive a daily sleep summary. Bluetooth Maximum range is about 30ft (10 m) from the sensor, however, we recommend the phone be placed within up to 15ft (5m) from the bed. If you want to keep your phone in a different room, please check the app to ensure the sensor is connected before going to sleep. In the LIVE app, you will see a green checkmark beside “Sensor Connected” on the Sleep Monitoring screen, and a blue connectivity indication light will be lit on the sensor, if the sensor is connected and ready to track.
No! LIVE's sensor unit is a very small and thin disk that is placed underneath your top mattress. You won’t feel a thing as you get a good night’s rest.
Sensor & Technology
Live by EarlySenseTM has undergone extensive clinical evaluation in the sleep lab and home environment to validate the system’s vital sign and sleep tracking capabilities. Live demonstrates greater than 95% accuracy in detecting heart and breathing rates and around 90% accuracy in several sleep quality measures, when compared to the clinical gold standards. Furthermore, Live is based on EarlySense’s hospital technology. At EarlySense, we are dedicated to offering highly accurate devices you can count on. Find out more about EarlySense’s technology validation in the following scientific research publications.

LIVE by EarlySense can reliably measure heart rate values from 30 to 200 BPM (beats per minute) and respiratory breathing rate values ranging from 6 to 65 Br./min (breaths per minute).
Avoid using heating blankets when using the device.
The sensor and mobile app are easily linked using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). A blue LED indication light on the sensor will turn on to show the sensor and app are connected. In the app, the Sleep Monitoring screen will display a green checkmark beside “Sensor Connected” when the sensor and app are successfully linked. LIVE will only record data if your mobile device is within Bluetooth range of the sensor.
The LIVE sensor measures a combination of three motion signals: gross body movement, chest wall motion, and the tiniest recoil of the body with every heartbeat. Proprietary and sophisticated signal processing algorithms are used to separate the signal into its components and calculate three parameters: heart rate, respiration rate, and movement. The values of these vital signs together with their instantaneous variability are further used to calculate sleep stages, awakenings, and your sleep score.
Mobile Application
Your daily sleep score is an indication of your sleep quality. You can use it to compare your sleep night after night and then try to improve it using your daily sleep tips.
Your sleep score is calculated based on seven different parameters:

  • Total sleep time

  • Sleep efficiency (ratio between your total sleep time and the total time you spent in bed)

  • Time it took you to fall asleep

  • Number of times you woke up during the night

  • Number of times you exited the bed

  • Amount of time you spent in deep sleep

  • Percentage of time you spent in REM sleep (REM sleep is the part of the sleep which is characterized by dreaming)


So how do you know if your sleep score is good or not? The best way to determine if your score is “good” or “bad” is to compare it to your previous night’s scores. In this way, you can create your own personal baseline. For example, if you’re used to receiving sleep scores around 70, and today you got an 80, you will likely feel your sleep last night was better and you probably feel more refreshed compared to other days.
The score index is a general index based on different age groups. You may also use it to help you understand how your score is compared to others in your age group.
Sleep efficiency is the ratio between your total sleep time and the total time you spent in bed once you fell asleep. It is a good indicator of your sleep quality. The higher your number, the better, but in general, a sleep efficiency of 85% or greater is good. Really good sleep efficiency is above 90%.
With Live you will learn your nightly sleep quality with your sleep score and sleep efficiency, but you can also do a simple calculation to estimate your sleep quality. For example, let’s say you go to bed at 11 PM. It takes you 40 minutes to fall asleep and you wake up two times for 10 minutes and 5 minutes. Your morning alarm goes off at 6:30 AM. Here’s how you calculate your estimated sleep efficiency:
Total time spent in bed = 7.5 hours (450 minutes)
Minus your time to fall asleep = 40 minutes
Minus your time awakened = 15 minutes (10 + 5 minutes)
Total time actually asleep = 6 hours and 35 minutes (395 minutes)
Sleep efficiency = Total sleep time/Total time spent in bed = 395 minutes/450 minutes = 88%
Stress is your body’s reaction to events, thoughts, or emotions. Based on clinical research, Live is measuring your stress levels using one of the most reliable indicators of stress - the heart rate variability (HRV). HRV is the variation in the time interval between one heartbeat and the next. Generally, the more flexible we are, the more capable we are of dealing with life’s inevitable stressors. This flexibility is reflected in our nervous system and can be measured, using HRV as an indicator. Since Live is measuring your heart rate, it also analyzes your heart rate variability and thus can indicate your stress levels during your sleep.

You will find three different graphs in the LIVE app
- Sleep Stages: The sleep stages graph, also called a hypnogram, shows your sleep stages throughout the night. This graph helps you visualize your sleep cycles and know whether you were in deep, light or REM sleep or if you were awake or out of the bed at every minute during the night.
- Movement: The movement graph shows your movement density throughout the night. It is very useful for differentiating times when you were very active from times with little or no motion.
- Heart Rate: The heart rate graph shows your continuous heart rate trend throughout the night.
- Respiratory Rate: The respiration rate graph shows your continuous respiratory rate trend throughout the night.

Using these four graphs, you can better understand the correlation between your vital signs, movement, and sleep stages.
Each morning you will wake up to a complete wellness and sleep summary displayed on the Sleep Summary screen. You will see a multi-colored half circle around your sleep score and your nightly average heart rate, breathing rate, and stress level. If you had more than one sleep session during the day, you can tap on the green sessions to view different sleep session times. To learn more about your sleep stats, swipe left on your average heart or breathing rate values. In this panel, you will learn how your sleep score was calculated and the amount of time you spent in each of the sleep score parameters. Each sleep score parameter is associated with a color in the half circle. The amount of the half circle that is filled indicates how much this parameter contributed to your sleep score. For example, if you slept more than the minimum recommended sleep time of 7 hours, your dark blue track will be full indicating you received the maximum contribution amount for your sleep score calculation. Scroll down the Sleep Summary screen to view your sleep stages, or hypnogram, graph to learn more about your sleep stages throughout the night.

Smart Wake-Up is a smart alarm clock that wakes you up at the optimal point in your sleep cycle, within a preset range of time. Using Smart Wake-Up can help you avoid waking up from very deep sleep and feeling groggy all day long. Instead, Smart Wake-Up will help you wake feeling refreshed and ready to start your day.
A few important notes:

  • The Fresh Wake algorithm will search for the best estimated time to wake you up within your selected time frame. However, if no such point is found and the limit of this time

  • window has been reached, it will still alarm, functioning almost as a regular alarm clock.

  • If you are out of bed before the Fresh Wake window starts, the alarm will not sound.

  • Ensure you set the time range such that the end of the range is when you want to wake up.

  • If you set the time range 0 minutes, the Fresh Wake alarm clock will function as a regular alarm clock, waking you up at the exact time which you set.

  • Using the Fresh Wake function requires an active network connection. If no Internet connection is available, then the Smart Wake-Up alarm will act as a standard alarm, and will go off at the end of your defined range, regardless of your sleep stage..

There are two configurable snooze options for the Smart Wake-Up alarm clock.
Smart Snooze:Similar to a regular snooze mode, the smart snooze option allows you to snooze in five minute increments when you tap on “snooze” to silence the a ringing alarm. Since this is a “smart snooze” there are two conditions which may change the alarm’s behavior.

  • You fell back into deep sleep. To ensure you maintain your refreshed feeling, the alarm may not ring after exactly five minutes have passed. Instead, the Smart Wake-Up algorithm will be looking for the next optimal opportunity to wake you up within the original time window you defined in your Smart Wake-Up settings. If you are snoozing past your preset time window, the snooze will only last five minutes

  • You are already out of bed. The alarm will not ring if you are already out of bed. Thus, you will prevent the nuisance of hearing alarms when you are already out of bed and possibly preventing unnecessary interruption to your partner’s sleep.


Persistent Snooze: If you have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning or you keep hitting the snooze button, you may want to choose the persistent snooze option. Once the persistent snooze Smart Wake-Up alarm starts ringing, you will not be able to stop the alarm clock unless you get out of bed. Tricking the system won’t work here either! If you get back into bed within 10 minutes since the time you got up, the ringing will start again.
On some mornings, you may wake to a notification message.These notifications indicate that a significant change has been detected in one of the parameters that LIVE continuously tracks. You can use these notifications to learn about changes in your health or how your behaviors impact your sleep. For example, complete the diary each night to see if caffeine, alcohol, food, exercise, or your mood decrease or increase your sleep score the next day. Notifications are provided for sleep tracking, heart rate, and breathing rate. You will be able to read the entire notification message if you tap on the info button displayed as an “i” near the associated parameter.
LIVE is not a medical device and is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical conditions. Please consult with your physician for prevention, diagnosis, or treatment. When using LIVE, you may receive insights into your wellness and sleep. If you are concerned about any of your recorded values, please visit your physician. There are users that have found the data helpful in tracking how different sleep techniques and aids are working by utilizing the sleep score and other wellness statistics provided by LIVE.
