Doorstep Delivery: Sleep Number® smart bed Set-Up Guide

Use the set-up guide below for any Sleep Number smart bed model purchased in 2023 to present. Visit this page if you are looking for the Sleep Number 360® smart bed set-up guide.

Before you begin

  • We recommend having two people complete set-up.
  • If you haven't already, download the Sleep Number® app from your device's app store.
  • Register your Sleep Number account and smart bed after downloading the Sleep Number app. You will need your order number and the email address you used when you order to complete registration.

Set-Up Overview

The below set-up guide will walk you through how to assemble any Sleep Number smart bed model, integrated base, and stylish frame. Sleep Number FlexFit™ smart adjustable bases are not available for Doorstep Delivery.

Smart bed assembly can take up between 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete. The set-up guide will walk you through three phases of setup:

  1. Assemble your smart bed.
  2. Get your smart bed online with the Sleep Number app.
  3. Start sleeping better tonight.

1. Assemble your smart bed

Set up your Stylish Frame

Skip these steps if you did not purchase a stylish frame.

  1. Lay out all five pieces. Place the sides on the ground with the plastic holders facing the inside of the frame.
  2. Attach the center cross brace to the side rails. Lower to click into place.
  3. Attach head and foot cross braces after center support is secure.
  4. Make sure all pieces are level and securely attached.
  5. Apply adhesive foot pads to prevent scratching a hard floor surface (if desired).Diagram showing how to assemble a stylish frame.

Set up your Integrated Base

  1. Slide the base into the frame and make sure it is locked firmly in place. If you have a King or Split King base, you will need to place two sides into the frame and connect the hoses between each side, followed by the sensor strip wire (only on select models).

  2. With two people carrying the mattress, place it surface-side down with the head of the mattress at the foot of your bed frame/base.

  6. Using the first hose bunch clip, clip the hoses together starting at the head of the bed. The clip should be located about six to eight inches before the hose and wire bunch the mattress.

  7. Connect the rest of the clips. All clips should be about 12 inches apart. There are four total clips along the hose bunch.
  8. Zip the mattress cover close. The border wrap must be positioned over the foam/air chamber and remain flat during zipping.

  2. Open the Sleep Number® app and tap "Smart Bed."
  3. Tap "Set Up Bed" and follow the steps. This may take 5 to 10 minutes.
