This is not an APAP machine to record sleep, but the ResMed S+ is supposed to be able to do it remotely, even down to classifying sleep stages. One does wonder if it is as good as suggested, why ResMed doesn't use the algorithms in their apnoea machines, where surely the breath cycle part of things would be more accurate that what could be achieved by an external device, though the external device can in addition measure movement.
Nevertheless I am just about to try one out and will report in a few weeks how it goes (As an Aussie, I also have to complete work-arounds to be able to download "App store USA only" software)
Some of the ResMed blurb FYI
"“The S+ measures movements using ultra low power radio waves (less than 1/10 of Bluetooth®) …........
A major component of the S+ system is our patent-protected SleepSensor that lets it monitor your sleep without actually touching you. No mattress strips. No wristbands. Just a nightstand monitor that can accurately record your breathing and movement. Proprietary software performs a variety of signal analysis tasks including respiration analysis and sleep quality measurement.
The S+ technology’s ability to accurately measure sleep patterns has been published in 10 scientific papers, and has been tested and proven against expert manually scored patient sleep data gathered in several accredited sleep laboratories.
Monitors the four stages of your sleep (sleep onset, light sleep, deep sleep and REM) and whenever your sleep is interrupted
Creates a personalized sleep chart comparing your sleep against an ideal night’s sleep for your age and gender”"

Whoa, at $83 for prime members at Amazon this is hard to compete with if it works. I may have to get one just to test it. Their claims are pretty solid, I expect they are not going to damage their reputation if it doesn't work. I like their guarantee to increase sleep time in 30 days or money back. hmmm. Now to get that data out of the iPhone and into a data file.
I can't post a link yet (too noob) but just go to ResMed, or google or Amazon and search for ResMed S+
EDIT: Okay, I couldn't pass on this, the implication was the $50 off was a limited time so I bought one and will have it Tuesday and will see how it works and if there is anyway to get the time stamped data out of it! Worse case, copy it by hand into a spreadsheet daily...
