The secret is hidden in the upper right corner of the smart speaker. A soli radar chip is installed here, which can accurately track the user’s macro (limb swing) and micro (chest up and down movement during breathing) horizontal movement during sleep. It can also detect cough, snoring, light fluctuation, temperature change and other factors through the built-in microphone, light sensor and temperature sensor .
