    Yes to technology that enhances the sleeping / waking experience. I have a dawn waking light that gradually wakes me up. I use my phone instead of an alarm clock so I can choose different types of alarms or music to wake me up. It's also great if two people share a room. Stick the phone under your pillow and it's less likely to wake you partner up. I won't have anything like tvs in the bedroom.

    Very bad Fengtai shui. The bedroom is supposed to be a sanctuary to escape from the crazy world.

    I'm indifferent, we have a tv but rarely use it. I do believe children's bedrooms should be kept tech free though as they'd never go to sleep!

    Wi-Fi in the bedroom is a bad idea. If you struggle to get a good nights sleep turn the Wi-Fi off and all electrical gadgets. Science is starting to understand how these items can interfere with some people are sensitive emf. I have never had a good nights sleep when I have forgotten to turn the Wi-fi off and the phone is next to my head, beside the bed. It is usually in the morning after tossing and turning all night, that I go to turn my Wi-fi on, on the phone and realise has been on all night. It's happened too many time for it to be a coincidence. The bedroom should be peaceful and tranquil to promote winding down before going to sleep. Lots of people struggle to do this. I still struggle.

    Ditching technology in the bedroom is bound to lead to a better night's sleep. TV's and phones just act as a distraction to actually getting a good night's sleep. We found lots of people find reading a book helps with the 'falling asleep' process.

    Bedroom should be tech free and ideally blocking all radio waves too. Good night's sleep doesn't need interference. Some things should stay the good old way!

    Your bedroom should be a sanctuary, an escape space from the technology overload of the day

    Our bodies/ energy systems are bombarded daily with all these WiFi waves which can't be really healthy. So at least in the bedroom it should be calm and tech free to calm and recharge ones "battery". In case someone can't be without their gadgets, it would be good to maybe place a few black tourmaline stones around the room to help to absorb the electromagnetic energy.

    The bedroom is a tranquil place and technology can distract when you're trying to get some peace.

    I like to keep the bedroom gadget free - it's a place to wind down...with a good book!

    A bedroom is a place to rest, not to get connected

    In a fast paced world I don't see why technology can't be beneficial in the bedroom...the Atlantic Maradja range of electric radiators that we offer can be controlled remotely by a smartphone app; this case has tech helping you relax. You can adjust the temperature without having to leave the comfort of your bed!

    I've had to take it with me as I didn't want the kids on the open internet unsupervised. Anything I left in the loungeroom they'd nab.
