LEXINGTON, Ky., April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tempur-Pedic International Inc. (NYSE: TPX), the world's largest bedding provider, announced today that it is partnering with HGTV to feature a wide range of innovative sleep products in the first-ever HGTV Smart Home, which showcases the latest products in home technology, coupled with eco-friendly features. Built by HGTV in the community of Paradise Key South Beach in Jacksonville Beach, Fla., the high-tech home will be awarded to one lucky winner (June 13, 2013) as part of an HGTV Smart Home Giveaway.
The HGTV Smart Home focuses on both increased energy efficiency and smart home technology. Smart home technology is used to connect many of the home's appliances and devices, allowing the occupants to monitor energy use and to control home systems such as security, interior climate, lighting and other electronics.
"Participation in the HGTV Smart Home aligns perfectly with our never-ending commitment to create sleep innovations that tap into the needs of today's consumers. Our premium-quality mattresses, bed bases and pillows, which are used throughout the Smart Home, bring truly luxurious and customized sleep to an entirely new level," said Rick Anderson, president of Tempur-Pedic North America.
Products for better sleep Among the Tempur-Pedic products featured in the HGTV Smart Home is the TEMPUR-Ergo™ Premier adjustable bed base, offering head lift, leg lift, three massage zones per sleeper and multiple pre-programmed massage options. The base includes a Wi-Fi module, and users can download a free TEMPUR-Ergo System Premier app enabling them to operate the movable bed base and all massage features via a variety of wireless-enabled Apple® or Android™ devices. The base is paired with a TEMPUR-Cloud® Supreme Breeze mattress with TEMPUR-Breeze™ technology that draws moisture away from the body and dissipates excess heat for a cool, comfortable night's sleep. Several additional Tempur-Pedic products are also featured.
"The features and functionality of this home are like nothing we've ever offered in HGTV home giveaways, and set the standard for creative spaces and ways that consumers can use emerging technology to improve their homes," said Jack Thomasson, HGTV house planner.
