Chillax: Products dedicated to parents and their children @ CES 2022

Friday Jan 28, 2022 (00:08:27)


As the world gets more complex, keeping track of our babies' every need can be more difficult. Some parents are working long hours either away from home or in the home, while others are trying to just maintain the home. It's simply impossible to be with them every second of the day. That's where Chillax Care comes in - a company with products and services to help you keep an eye on your baby while also helping them to grow without being with them every minute.

Who is Chillax?

Chillax, a company founded in 2020, is passionate about making products that assist families in their everyday lives. Chillax was created for parents, by parents, with the goal of helping little ones sleep better while providing complete peace of mind to parents. With a decade of experience in the baby and consumer electronics industry, the company has combined its expertise in design, engineering, and personal struggles as parents to create solutions with advanced features, durability, and the highest reliability for a seamless parenting journey.

What is the Chillax Baby Mood AI?

The Chillax Baby Mood AI is a monitoring system that uses advanced facial recognition technology to track a baby's mood and behavior. The AI can distinguish between different emotions, such as anger, sadness, joy, and surprise, allowing parents to better understand their child's emotional state. This information can help parents adjust their parenting style in order to provide the most beneficial environment for their child.

The Chillax Baby Mood AI also includes a noise and motion sensor to detect if a baby is awake or asleep, as well as the ability to track heart rate and oxygen saturation levels. This data can be used by parents to ensure that their child is getting enough rest and is not in any danger of things such as SIDS, roll-overs, or face coverings. There are 3 styles of mounts: one for the crib, one for the wall and a portable one to be taken away from the sleeping area, such as a playpen or stroller.

The most unique aspect of the product, however, is its ability t help train your baby in natural sleep cycles. Using colored lights on the base of the mount, the baby can learn the cycles of the day, preparing him or her for proper activities. A yellow light indicates the beginning of the day, mimicking the sun. A blue light indicates that it is time to be asleep. Other states can indicate active playtime and quiet playtime.

What are some of the other Chillax products?

In addition to the Chillax Baby Mood AI, Chillax also offers a number of other products that help parents keep an eye on their children. They offer a simpler baby monitor, the Daily Baby, that transmits audio and video to a dedicated receiver or phone app over Wi-Fi. Its small size allows you to install it just about anywhere, but it doesn't have the advanced features from above. They also offer the Giraffe Cam, similar to the Daily Baby, but with a clip-on base and no dedicated receiver.

In addition, to tie everything together, the company offers Chillax Care - is a service that provides live streaming and recording of your child's room for 24/seven peace of mind. This way you can see what is happening at home even when you can't be there.

All Chillax products are designed to be easy to use, durable, and reliable, making them the perfect choice for any family.


The Chillax Baby Mood AI will ship later in 2022 for $499. To learn more about the full line of Chillax products, you can head over to their website.

Todd Cochrane (0:21)

Okay, so we're going to bring Andrea Balboa up from Chillax, a Car Care Limited. Did I pronounce it correctly?

Andrea Balboa (0:29)

That is correct.

Todd Cochrane (0:31)

Well, I tell you, I saw this, I walked by your guys' booth yesterday, but it did not stop. But yeah, we'll get there we go. So what we have ladies and gentlemen on the table is we have an infant, not a real infant.

Andrea Balboa (0:46)

But it's a breathing infant.

Todd Cochrane (0:48)

Oh, it is a breathing infant. Oh, so we got a breathing infant here and we have a- Well, I'm just going to let you talk about the product because I'm going to tell you everything about it and I'll be wrong. Go ahead.

Andrea Balboa (1:03)

Okay, so what we have here it's called the Baby Mood AI by Chillax Baby. So, of course, it features AI that detects if the baby's face is covered, or if there is talk when rolling over. So what we bring here is a breathing doll that actually mimics the real breathing rate per minute of a baby. So it features machine learning as well, that would detect the breathing rate per minute of the baby. So in our packaging, we mentioned that it's an all-one smart baby monitor that features a baby, it is actually more than just the baby monitor. So it features the baby monitor itself, breathing rate detection, covered face, and rollover detection. And one cool thing about it is that it helps babies to train on how to sleep.

Todd Cochrane (1:56)

Oh, that's interesting.

Andrea Balboa (1:57)

That is right.

Todd Cochrane (1:59)

So not only are you doing protection from SIDS and those types of you know, things that are very devastating in families, but also you give them mom a way to check out an app I'm assuming, or have the monitor with her, which is not or the father when they're not near the baby. So tell me about the, let's talk about how it is teaching babies to sleep first, how does that actually accomplish?

Andrea Balboa (2:23)

Okay, so, based on the recommended colors from the World Health Organization, we stimulate the baby to sleep using the colors. So you can preset the colors to teach the babies if it's bedtime if it's time to wake up, and you can control it through the app. So what we want to accomplish is we want babies to establish a healthy sleep routine.

Todd Cochrane (2:48)

Right. So basically, you establish blue is the time that the baby's going to sleep.

Andrea Balboa (2:53)

That is correct.

Todd Cochrane (2:54)

White is maybe when they're supposed to wake up?

Andrea Balboa (2:57)

Oh, it's actually yellow the color of the primary.

Todd Cochrane (2:59)


Andrea Balboa (2:59)

That's right.

Todd Cochrane (3:00)

Okay, so what is the red used for?

Andrea Balboa (3:02)

Red is like a quiet playtime because you know, babies when you put them to sleep, they will not sleep right?

Todd Cochrane (3:08)

That's right.

Andrea Balboa (3:09)

They know that, okay, it's s still playtime and then after some time, when all we change the color, say it's around 8 pm already, and the parents start the color in blue, right, and they should be able to sleep. It's very cute for sleep.

Todd Cochrane (3:22)

So I've raised four and a half five kids and for me that nighttime routine was really important to get them down, to get them to the point where they could go to sleep. So we could get some sleep. How much is this helping? Do you have any studies to see how this color effect is helping with the sleep pattern? Are you able to track that through the device or is it just, I'm just kind of curious what your research has been, how effective that is?

Andrea Balboa (4:02)

Yes. So in terms of the research, that's something that we haven't gone through in-depth at the moment. So this product, we're planning to launch at the end of February.

Todd Cochrane (4:12)

Got you. Okay.

Andrea Balboa (4:13)

All right. So, yeah, but we'll be releasing, so our R&D team was working on that.

Todd Cochrane (4:18)

Okay. So on the monitoring part then is it looking for the actual respiration or is it listening for respiration?

Andrea Balboa (4:24)

No. So basically, what we're trying to say here is that based on the micro-movements of the baby, the camera detects every single movement that the baby is making. And then based on that we have like a library from the machine learning capabilities of the product that would identify based on the movements of the baby and that's where we calculate the breathing rate detection through the algorithm.

Todd Cochrane (4:47)

Okay. So when it comes to something covering the face, then is that something that the camera is able, has been trained to do is look for obstruction of the mouth or nose, is that what?

Andrea Balboa (4:59)

That's correct. So That is where the AI works. So it detects the baby's face first. So first of all, it will be the human detection rate. So after the camera detected the person's body, it can detect the face, so if anything is covered, it will alert parents in real-time if the baby's face cannot be detected. So the camera can alert the parents through the phone, especially if they're out of the house and one cool thing is, it also alerts in the handheld video parent unit because you know, if you're inside a house, you're not on your phone the whole time. Let's say the parent is in the kitchen, doing household chores or cooking, it can just stay there the whole time.

Todd Cochrane (5:39)

So sometimes parents don't put young infants in cribs yet. They may put them in bed with them or maybe they have a separate sleeper. Are there any other attachment devices for this or where would you expect this to be placed?

Andrea Balboa (5:57)

Yeah. So um, there are three options on how to install Baby Mood. That's why we're saying that it actually grows with your child. So first of all it comes with a wall mount, or the crib mount, depending on the set the kind of setup that you have for the nursery, right? So you can install it on the wall, and it comes with a crib mount. And then if you want to take your baby out, let's say you have another playpen in your living area, then you can just simply detach the Baby Mood and place it on the table.

Todd Cochrane (6:25)

I got you.

Andrea Balboa (6:26)

So it goes with you.

Todd Cochrane (6:27)


Andrea Balboa (6:27)

And it is battery-operated so it does not have to be plugged in all the time that's why it's riding up right now.

Todd Cochrane (6:32)

Awesome. What is the typical charge length on this? How long does it stay charged?

Andrea Balboa (6:38)

It's about three to four hours on a full charge.

Todd Cochrane (6:41)

So something if you're going to put into the playpen and you're not plugged in, you're going to want to remember to plug it back in later.

Andrea Balboa (6:46)

That's right.

Todd Cochrane (6:46)

Awesome. What is the price point in this going to look like?

Andrea Balboa (6:49)

Yeah, this will be 499.99 dollars. It will be available on Amazon starting in February.

Todd Cochrane (6:55)

499.99 Amazon. And so it's called the ChillaxCare Limited. What is the website for this?

Andrea Balboa (7:03)


Todd Cochrane (7:04)

Chillaxcare. So, For those of you at home that wants to check this out. So in February, it'll be available on the market and on Amazon, and it probably is directly on the website.

Andrea Balboa (7:18)

That's right.

Todd Cochrane (7:19)

Yeah. Outstanding. Andrea, thank you so much for coming in and showing this new technology for baby monitoring. I do like the ability that it monitors the breathing and that can actually send an alert when there's something that's covering the face, as well as the training baby to sleep on a more defined schedule. Yes, that's the best way.

Andrea Balboa (7:41)

Thank you for having me here. Nice to meet you.

Todd Cochrane (7:43)

Nice to meet you. Thank you so much.

Andrea Balboa (7:47)

Thank you so much.
