The officials at iHome have a simple goal: The company wants you to sleep restfully and wake energized.
The Zenergy model iZBT10 bedside sleep therapy machine ($99.99) is designed with flame-free candles to deliver meditative lighting along with sound therapy, all controlled with the push of a button.
Inside the device are 11 different 1,000 Lux, full-color light therapy and decor lighting modes. You also have a choice of 10 sound therapy presets, including natural sounds of the ocean, nature and storms.
Never miss a local story.
The iOS iHome Zenergy App lets you select the sleep settings with descriptions of each, timers and light settings.
Along with the sleep functions, you’ll have the usual great features iHome products are known for – solid bedside sound, dimmable clock display, FM radio, dual alarms and a USB charging port for using your cable to charge a portable USB device.
Bluetooth will let you stream music from your personal device or connect directly with the aux-in port.

I almost feel like running Zagg’s new Rugged Book ($129.99) over with my car – and that’s not a bad thing.
I think the durable wireless magnetic-hinged keyboard with a detachable case is so tough, it could withstand the test. I’ll pass on doing so unless someone wants to offer me a unit for testing.
The case has four protective layers, which enable your tablet to withstand a drop from up to 6.6 feet, according to military drop-test standards. The layers are built with stainless steel, polycarbonate and rubber.
The case does add some weight to your tablet but if you’re using your tablet in rugged environments, there’s no doubt this is for you.
Along with its ruggedness, the case is versatile with an adjustable cradle hinge to view your tablet at multiple angles, or detach the case from the keyboard.
Even when detached, Bluetooth will allow you to type on the laptop-style keyboard.
The keyboard has a rechargeable battery, and a built-in sleep function saves the power when not in use.
The Rugged Book wireless keyboard and detachable case is compatible with the Apple 9.7-inch iPad, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, iPad Air and iPad Air 2.
ArmorAll’s new premium dashboard camera ($45.99) works perfectly, but what impressed me the most was the easy setup.
From start to finish, it takes just minutes to get the HD camera secured to a windshield or dashboard to record your whereabouts on a microSD memory card (not included).
The HD camera has a 120-degree wide-angle lens on the front and a 3-inch LCD on the back. It swivels 360 degrees for the right viewing and recording angle.
Inside is an active G-sensor, which has collision and motion detection.
Recordings are in full 1080p HD. A car charger and micro USB charging cable is included.
