The newest adjustable bed for Beautyrest beds is the smartest one so far, the SmartMotion Adjustable Base. This is part of the current trend of building the "smart house" with smart systems, smart appliances, and smart furnishings. The computer has moved not just into the bedroom, but into the bed itself.
Just how is the SmartMotion bed smart? It senses, makes decisions, and acts on those decisions. The SmartMotion Base is studded with sensors to monitor a user's vital signs, movements, etc. It may not be Santa Claus, but it "knows when you are sleeping, knows when you're awake." Real-time adjustments are made based of the sensors' readings.
Over time, the SmartMotion foundation builds a profile of the user. This smart bed calculates what works and what doesn't work for helping the users to get quality sleep. The sensors then indicate when sleepers are not sleeping effectively. For instance, a change in position may interrupt a sleep apnia incident.
The system for all of this is called Sleeptracker Technology. According to Simmons Beautyrest, this technology not only makes adjustments, is also "synthesizes your data into custom coaching tips." In other words, it helps the user learn how to sleep better.
The key to this is the Sleeptracker App, loaded onto the tablet or smart phone remote control. Principal features of this are Advanced Sleep Tracking, Customized Coaching, Sleep Cycle Alarm, and Advanced Sleep Analysis. But users are not always controlled by the app. It enables them to control the base.
The following photos from Simmons Beautyrest display several features of the Sleeptracker App:
The sensors in the SmartMotion Base are out of sight, invisible. Users do not need to wear them. All they have to do is get into bed.
The Beautyrest site has a Customer Support link. Customer Support has an owner's manual for each model of the SmartMotion adjustable base. Judging by these, there are three models: SM Base 1.0, SM Base 2.0, and SM Base 3.0. The 2.0 and 3.0 bases have a massage function.
The Sleeptracker App is available on a subscription basis. There are two subscription plans, Essential and Premium. These differ on the usable features. Both plans use cloud storage of sleep data. Coaching is part of the Premium package.
Already available through Sears, the SmartMotion carries a warranty for 20 years.
