Tips for getting accurate data

Try these tips to make sure SleepIQ is capturing the most accurate sleep data and providing the best possible insights and recommendations.

1. Baseline your bed.

Make sure your bed has a proper baseline at the initial set up and after a power outage. Baselining your bed allows SleepIQ technology to take a pressure reading of the bed with no one in bed, so that SleepIQ can accurately detect when you are in bed. Give your bed two weeks to improve data recording. Avoid baselining your bed too often. Read Baseline Your Bed for instructions. 

2. Verify your bed time zone.

You can check and edit the bed's time zone with the SleepIQ app. An accurate time zone is important for recording the correct in and out of bed times. See Edit Profile for steps to edit your bed's time zone.  

Good to know:

Adjusting your Sleep Number setting immediately after getting out of bed can interfere with accuracy while SleepIQ is finalizing your SleepIQ score. If you like to inflate your bed to 100 in the morning, we recommend waiting 20 minutes after you get out of bed.

Your SleepIQ system can record multiple sleep sessions. If you take short naps during the day you may notice a really low score for those sleep sessions. The score that matters most is your main sleep session. The dates at the top of the Sleep screen will tell you what sleep session you are looking at. Scroll through the dates to make sure you're looking at the correct sleep session. Read Understanding Your SleepIQ Score to learn more about what affects your score.
