But the customers were right to be alarmed. A spokesperson for the company told CNBC that a prototype was in the works to enable audio snoring detection, but was not launched, and this was the product to which the legal notice referred.

That's a scary prospect, as more and more of our everyday devices go online and we live more of our lives connected -- even when we're sleeping.
The $3,000+ "360 Smart Bed," the model that had been considered for the advanced audio snoring feature, comes with a smart phone app that allows users to track their sleeping habits.
