Introducing the world's first ever bed bug free, allergy-free* bed!

Sleep safe from bed bugs, allergy-causing dust mites and germs. 

Laurel

GoodKnight is the world's only bed bug-free, allergy-free* bed. It quickly eliminates bed bug infestations and provides round-the-clock protection against bed bugs. Sleek, and easy to use, the GoodKnight is a great addition to any stylish home.

The GoodKnight Team 

We are a family business, passionate about two things: Your well-being, and bugs! While providing eco pest control in our hometown, Montreal, we saw so much suffering from bed bugs. The GoodKnight project is an effort to address the bed bug epidemic in a creative, outside-the-box kind of way. As a team of entomologists, we have merged knowledge of insect biology with design and technology to create a truly unique product. Arm yourself with a GoodKnight, and join us in this campaign to stop bed bugs!

Quickly eliminate a bedbug infestation

Gentle heat is mild enough for bedding, but hot enough to kill bed bug adults, young and eggs. The heat technology and our built-in trapping system work in tandem to completely eliminate bedbug infestations.

Easily prevent an infestation

Purify your bed after you get home from travelling. The 24/7 protection will lure and trap any bedbugs that may have followed you home.

Saves you money

When it comes to bedbugs, prevention is key. A single infestation can cost thousands of dollars in lost property and extermination fees. We designed the GoodKnight™ beds to offer proactive control and save you money.

Our Goal

We are hoping to raise 90,000, or sell about 90 GoodKnight beds. The money will help us pay for:

  • CSA or UL certification
  • Our first manufacturing order

Perks

$5-$50: We are working with local talented artists to produce a beautiful illustrated children's book and post cards, themed on the brave GoodKnight and his bed bug adventure. The rest of our perks are based on pre-selling the GoodKnight.

Donations to shelters: Many homeless shelters have been hit hard by bed bugs, some even closing down due to heavy infestations. Help us empower shelters to protect their residents and volunteers. Your donations will go towards GoodKnight beds for the Herstreet shelter for homeless women in Montreal. Once we reach our goal of 10 beds, we will begin donations to another shelter. (Send us your suggestions for candidate shelters).

GoodKnight Pre-sales: We have a special price for the early birds. Get your very own GoodKnight bed with 35% off our retail price (90 available). If you don't make the early bird special, we have some other great deals!

Risks and challenges

Every project faces its share of risks and challenges, but we feel confident we can overcome any hurdles that come our way. We already have jumped some important hurdles as a team. Nonetheless, here are the risks and challenges we can foresee: 

1. Delay in production. This should not be a problem, as we have already set up multiple suppliers for the different components of the GoodKnight, so we are not reliant on a single manufacturer and can avoid any major hiccups in production. 
2. Delay in product safety certification. We are already well in the process of undertaking product safety certification. We have performed rigorous testing of the product in our facilities before bringing them for certification testing, so we do not expect this to pose a threat to our delivery deadline. 
3. Delay because of quality control. We are set up to carefully inspect and test each product before it is sent out. Basically, we won't ship anything that we aren't proud of. 
If we are successfully funded we will regularly keep in touch with every backer to keep them updated.
