Zeo User

I just discovered Zeo is out of business. I found QS in my search for a way to download data from my bedside ZEO appliance’s data card directly into my PC. I saw a post ( Posted on May 21, 2013 by Ernesto Ramirez) at http://quantifiedself.com/2013/05/how-to-download-your-zeo-data/ that points to Eric Blue’s download page, but the only file there is 2 byte text file, and obviously not a download utility program. But I’m not a software developer, so it’s quite possible I misunderstood the process.

Can anybody help me find a way to take sleep data off the chip plugged into my Zeo clock so that I can decode sleep data on it into a CSV file for import to my Windows PC?

Thank you,

Hi Mike,

See these posts:

and others in this thread: https://forum.quantifiedself.com/thread-zeo-shutting-down-export-your-data


Thank you very much. Looks like I need to put my tech hat on and see if I can install all this! But to have the ability to display my sleep data in the original ZEO graphics is well worth it.

By the way, all of this is only as good as my ZEO headband, which probably is nearing the end of it’s life. I checked eBay, but there’s no individual headbands for sale, just used ZEO sets (and who knows how old those headbands are.)

Do you know if the mobile headband (the one that comes with the ZEO mobile stand) works with the bedside clock device?

Do you know anyplace that is still selling new headbands?

Thanks again,

The Zeo headbands (transmitters) for Bedside and Mobile are not interchangeable. However, you may be able to modify mobile sensor pads to fit a bedside headband transmitter. Don’t know, haven’t tried it. It is possible to construct your own sensor pads. Here is one example: http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Replacement-Zeo-Sleep-Monitor-Headband-Sensor/ . Google should turn up more.

In my experience, the bedside sensor pads will last far beyond the 3 months originally recommended by Zeo. I’ve been using my current one for about 6 months without any apparent signs of degradation.

The installation of the Decoder Viewer https://forum.quantifiedself.com/thread-zeo-shutting-down-export-your-data?pid=3057#pid3057 is pretty straight forward. Just read it over a couple of times and follow the steps exactly and you shouldn’t have a problem. Do note that following the steps will erase all old data on the card and you’ll have to collect new sleep data to display after installing the new firmware.

Good luck,

I am fairly new to zeo also and have found that the headbands and softwave sensors are the key to long life. After wondering around ebay for a long time I ran into a man who does sometimes have components available. His name is Nate and his email is natester002@aim.com. I believe that he either is or was a Zeo dealer. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. I purchased four new softwave sensor pads from him and I am thrilled with the transaction. He may still have access to the components. Good luck it’s a great product.
