Using your remote

Our remotes allow you to control the various features of your mattress and/or adjustable base. 

The first step to using your remote is pairing your remote.  Check out Set Up My Remote for help pairing your remote.

If your bed has SleepIQ® technology or didn’t come with a remote, read SleepIQ®: Control Your Bed: controlling your bed through the SleepIQ® App.

Finding your Sleep Number® setting

Your app or remote allows you to control the ideal firmness and support of your mattress -- your Sleep Number® setting. Follow the instructions on either your remote or app to find your Sleep Number® setting. This process will take a few minutes.

Begin by lying on the bed in your preferred sleeping position.

  • Press the Side button to choose your side of the bed
  • Press the Menu button to show the main menu
  • From the menu, choose Settings
  • In Settings, choose 'Find Your Sleep Number'
  • Follow the instructions on your remote to find your Sleep Number® setting. This will take a few minutes.

It’s OK if your Sleep Number® setting isn’t the same setting you found in the store. Give your body a little time to adjust. Soon you’ll be enjoying all the benefits of a better night’s sleep.

Using a remote:

Begin by lying on the bed in your preferred sleeping position.

  • Press the Right/Left or side button to select your side of the bed.
  • Press the Menu button to show the main menu.
  • From the menu, choose Settings.
  • In Settings, choose Find Your Sleep Number®.

Using the SleepIQ® app:

Begin by lying on your bed in your preferred sleeping position.

  • Log in.
  • Tap Bed Controls.
  • Tap Find Your Sleep Number® Setting or use the arrows and tap Set to make micro adjustments.  

Adjusting your FlexFit™ adjustable base

Use the up and down arrows to adjust your bed position or choose from the menu of preset bed positions.   

Save a favorite bed position

Adjust the bed to your Favorite position. Press the star button or hold down the button on top of your remote. The remote will prompt you to save the current position as your Favorite Setting. 

Flat and Favorite will operate the bed differently if you have a FlexTop® or Split King bed.

FlexTop® Size

  • Favorite will operate both sides of the bed together, because the foot of the bed must adjust at the same time for this setting.
  • Flat will return the foot to flat and the head of the selected side to flat. The other head will stay elevated until returned to flat on that side of the bed. 

Split King

  • You can save a different Favorite setting for each side of the bed.
  • Favorite and Flat will adjust each side of the bed independently.
