We learned about Smart Nora at a dinner party from a friend who described how it worked and raved about the results. Our friend's wife was curious enthusiastic. I was curious, but skeptical. My wife, who has complained about my snoring for years, was less skeptical. Then our friend explained there was a money-back guarantee. When we arrived home, my wife had not forgotten and urged me to try Smart Nora. What did we have to lose?
I ordered Smart Nora on-line, it arrived within a few days, and was nicely packaged with clear set-up instructions. I chose to mount the wireless sensor on a window frame just above and behind my head. I left the sensitivity on the default setting. I started with a pillow that was a bit too thick and switched to a thinner pillow to allow the Smart Nora bellows to inflate without being constricted. The compressor that inflates the bellows is virtually silent; I never hear it running. Ever. Same goes for the bellows that inflate; it never wakes me up, but it does interrupt my snoring.
After three nights using Smart Nora, my wife announced success. She was sleeping better because I wasn't snoring. After a week, I realized I was sleeping better, too. I was getting the best sleep I'd experienced in decades. And on the occasions where I forgot to activate it before going to sleep, my wife would wake me with a gentle reminder - "Turn on Nora, please!"
The design and manufacturing quality of the product components is excellent. My only modification was I partially covered the indicator light on the remote sensor with some blue painter's tape to reduce the brightness a bit.
I've been using Smart Nora for almost a year now and am still very pleased with it's performance. We've told many people about Smart Nora and have recommended it to friends who have snoring issues. Before undergoing surgery recently, the anesthesiologist asked me if I had any problems with snoring. "I used to have a snoring problem, but then I started using Smart Nora," I explained. Intrigued, she pulled out pen and paper to write down the name. "What was the name of that product? My husband snores and I'm going to tell him to try it."
There should be more products that do what they say they'll do, aren't outrageously expensive, are well-designed and manufactured, come with clear instructions, and offer a money-back guarantee. Smart Nora is just such a product.
My wife said to add this: "Give Smart Nora a try. You'll sleep better and so will your partner."
