A simple solution to help you sleep better, according to a new research.
A new study published in the journal Sleep Health suggests a simple solution that works in your home.
Researchers found that a simple switch on the front of the auto door automatically turns on the light.
When it is off, it means your dog or cat can sleep in peace.
They also found that the switch reduces stress in families with children.
But, the study authors say there’s more to the story.
They say there is some evidence that the automatic pet door light can be used to reduce the likelihood of sudden infant death syndrome, or SIDS.
This condition, which affects one in every 1,000 infants, can be sudden, causing the child to die.
“We found that this can actually decrease the risk of SIDS,” said Dr. Julie Kagan, an assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of California, San Francisco.
“If the dog or the cat is sleeping, it’s going to be a very different situation,” she said.
In the past, Kagan said the idea that a pet door could help a parent prevent a child from dying from SIDS has been based on studies of dogs and cats.
“But we have been able to find that there is a very, very low prevalence of SID among children,” she told ABC News.
“When a child is in bed, the risk is very, really low,” Kagan added.
“It’s very, low.”
For this study, the researchers looked at the relationship between dog or pet door lights and SIDS among the families in the study.
They found that when the dog is on, the child has a better chance of survival.
They are also able to control the pet door’s brightness.
“There are some indications that a high-brightness pet door can help a family reduce the risk for SIDS, and it may be an effective way to do that,” Kahan said.
“It’s the right thing to do.”
This is not the first time researchers have suggested that the pet light could help reduce the chance of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
In a 2009 study, a team led by Dr. Mark A. Reisz of the University at Buffalo found that pets were linked to a higher rate of SAD among infants.
In a 2011 study, researchers from the University College London found that pet doors reduced the risk to children from Sudden Injury Syndrome, or SIUS, a condition that can cause sudden infant deaths.
A similar study published last year by the National Center for Sleep Medicine found that dog or dog door lights are linked to lower rates of SIDs among infants in families that have young children.
