Beddit FAQ

Support

  • Can I use Beddit Sleep Monitor in every kind of bed?

    You can use a Beddit sensor strip in most beds, but waterbeds or electric heated mattress pads can affect sensor accuracy.

  • Can I use Beddit Sleep Monitor if someone else sleeps in bed with me?

    Yes. Beddit Sleep Monitor can track your sleep in a shared bed. Each person tracking sleep requires one sensor strip and one iPhone.

  • How do I set up Beddit Sleep Monitor?

    To set up Beddit Sleep Monitor (Model 3.5), download the Beddit (for Model 3.5) app from the App Store. When you open the app for the first time, it will guide you through placement and setup of Beddit Sleep Monitor (Model 3.5) with the following instructions:

    1. To place the sensor strip, remove the fitted sheet and pillow from your sleeping area. If you have a mattress pad or protector, place the sensor strip on top of it.
    2. Place the sensor strip across the mattress with the dark rubber side facing down.
    3. Place the sensor strip at chest level with an approximately 10-inch (25 cm) gap from your pillow.

      The sensor strip should be centered around your sleeping area. If you sleep with someone, position it on your side of the bed.

      When placed at the center of your sleeping area, a portion of the sensor’s cable will rest on top of the mattress. Ensure that the sensor strip rests completely on the top of your mattress.

    4. Route the sensor cable to the side and behind the bed to avoid tripping.
    5. Place the fitted sheet over the sensor strip and the cable in the bed. There should be nothing between the sensor strip and the sheet.
    6. Connect the USB cable to the provided power adapter and plug the adapter into a wall socket.

    Note: After enabling automatic measurement, don't force quit the Beddit app. If you force quit the app, Beddit Sleep Monitor won’t be able to use automatic measurement until you open the app again. Leaving the app in the background doesn’t impact iPhone performance or battery life when Beddit Sleep Monitor isn't in use.

  • Does Beddit Sleep Monitor have to be plugged into a power outlet?

    Yes. Keep the Beddit sensor strip plugged in using the included power adapter so that it is always ready to monitor your sleep.

  • Where should I put my iPhone while I sleep?

    Place the iPhone in the same room, near the side of your bed (such as on a nightstand). Be sure to connect your iPhone to power while you sleep.

  • How do I use snoring detection?

    Snoring detection requires you to grant microphone access to Beddit Sleep Monitor (Model 3.5) on your iPhone. The Beddit app marks fluctuations in noise level but does not store audio (e.g., speech).

    Open the Beddit (for Model 3.5) app on iPhone. Tap the Settings tab. Then turn on Snoring Detection. If Beddit detects snoring during the night, it will appear the next morning in the sleep results.

    Note that some of the audio features of iPhone, such as notification sounds and using Siri, behave differently when snoring detection is active.

  • Does Beddit Sleep Monitor have to be connected wirelessly to my iPhone all night?

    Beddit Sleep Monitor communicates with iPhone via Bluetooth, continuously sending data as you sleep. Keeping the iPhone in the same room near the side of your bed ensures that sleep results are available as soon as you wake up.

  • Why don't I see Beddit Sleep Monitor listed under my other iOS Bluetooth devices?

    Beddit Sleep Monitor appears under My Devices in the iOS Bluetooth settings only after setup using the Beddit app. Make sure the sensor strip is plugged in, open the Beddit app, and follow instructions for setup. To make adjustments to the sensor settings for Beddit Sleep Monitor (Model 3.5), go to the Settings tab in the Beddit (for Model 3.5) app.

  • Do I have to sleep on top of the sensor strip? What happens if I move?

    It’s important to stay on top of the sensor strip to measure your sleep, heart rate, and breathing. Everyone moves during sleep, and you don’t have to remain perfectly centered. Beddit Sleep Monitor works as long as most of the upper body is positioned over the sensor strip. The sensor strip works in any sleep position — side, stomach, or back. If you move completely off the sensor strip, Beddit Sleep Monitor assumes you are away from the bed.

  • Can I clean Beddit Sleep Monitor?

    Use a lint roller to clean lint or hair from both sides of the outer sleeve of Beddit Sleep Monitor (Model 3.5). This method keeps the sleeve free of debris and can restore the grip of the material that keeps the sensor strip in place on the mattress. To further clean the Beddit Sleep Monitor (Model 3.5) sleeve, follow these steps:

    To wash the outer sleeve of Beddit Sleep Monitor (Model 3.5):

    1. Unplug the sensor cable from the power adapter.
    2. Remove the sensor strip and cable through the slit on the rubber underside of the sleeve.
    3. Hand wash the sleeve in cold water.
    4. Let the sleeve air dry indoors or in the shade.
    5. Make sure that the sleeve is completely dry on the inside and outside. Then reinsert the sensor strip with the white side of the sensor/cable joint (marked “THIS SIDE UP”) pointing toward the fabric side of the sleeve through the slit. Route the cable through the hole at the end of the sleeve.
    6. Place Beddit Sleep Monitor in the bed and connect the cable to the power adapter.

    To avoid damaging the outer sleeve of the sensor, do not place it in a washing machine or a dryer and do not iron, bleach, or dry clean the sleeve.

  • Do I have to tell the Beddit Sleep Monitor when I go to sleep or wake up?

    No. With automatic measurement enabled, you do not need to open the Beddit app or push any buttons at bedtime. Just go to bed and sleep — Beddit Sleep Monitor senses when you are lying in bed and when you've gotten up.

    Automatic measurement is enabled by default and can be turned on or off in the Settings tab of the Beddit (for Model 3.5) app. If automatic measurement is not enabled, go to the Results tab of the app to manually start and stop sleep measurement.

  • What languages is the Beddit app available in?

    The Beddit (for Model 3.5) app is available in English only.

  • Is Beddit Cloud supported?

    As of November 15, 2018, we no longer support Beddit Cloud, which allowed you to back up your sleep data on your online Beddit account and view it across multiple iOS devices.

    Any sleep data you stored locally on your iOS device and in your device backups depending on your backup preferences, continues to be available.

  • What do the sleep results in the Beddit app mean?

    Learn more about your Beddit sleep results.

  • How does Beddit Sleep Monitor measure heart rate and breathing?

    To track heart rate and breathing rate, Beddit Sleep Monitor measures tiny body movements that happen as your heart pumps blood and you breathe.

  • Can I see Beddit sleep results in the Health app?

    Yes. The Beddit app can save time in bed, sleep time, heart rate, and respiratory rate to the Health app on iPhone.

    During setup of the Beddit (for Model 3.5) app, you can turn on Health app connection. You can also turn it on or off in the Beddit app settings. Go to Health Access and tap Connect. Tap Turn All Categories On, then tap Allow.

    The Beddit app shares results with the Health app when Beddit Sleep Monitor finishes measuring sleep each night.

  • Can I use the Beddit app without Beddit Sleep Monitor?

    You can use the Beddit app at any time to review your sleep history and information. To track sleep, your iPhone must be connected via Bluetooth to your Beddit Sleep Monitor.

  • What can I do if sleep results are missing?

    If Beddit Sleep Monitor was set up and paired correctly and you didn't receive any results or received incomplete results for a night, it may be because of one of the following reasons:

    1. You might have rolled off the sensor strip during the night. Try to position the sensor strip in such a way that you stay on the sensor strip during the night.
    2. You might have a mattress pad, thick sheets, or multiple layers of fabric between the sensor strip and you. Try to keep the amount of fabric between the sensor strip and you to a minimum.
    3. You might have force quit the Beddit app. After enabling automatic measurement, don’t force quit the Beddit app. If you force quit the app, Beddit Sleep Monitor won’t be able to use automatic measurement until the app has been launched again. Leaving the app in the background doesn’t impact iPhone performance or battery life when Beddit Sleep Monitor isn't in use.
    4. Your iPhone might have lost Bluetooth connection with the sensor strip. Keep your iPhone in the same room near the side of your bed, such as on a nightstand, for the entire night. Be sure to connect your iPhone to power while you sleep.
  • How do I switch Beddit Sleep Monitor to a new iPhone?

  • I’m new to sleep monitoring. How do I get started?
