New features and more functions in the new Bed Control App

Smartphone apps play a central part of everyday life for people across the world. The new LINAK® Bed Control App gives owners of adjustable comfort beds extended functionality and adds new features.

It is no longer just about adjusting the backrest up and down in comfort beds. The latest update of the LINAK® Bed Control App includes several new features, functions and a significantly more intuitive in-app troubleshooting guide.

New bed selector to adjust either side of the bed
Probably the most distinctive new feature added to the app is the bed selector function. It allows the user to operate his/her own bed, both sides of the bed independently or synchronized. This way one user can raise a partner's backrest a little – for example, if he/she is snoring.

By naming the beds in the app it is easy to recognize, choose, control and adjust the bed you want to adjust.

New alarm function offers movement or massage
The new app also comes with a brand new silent alarm function. It can be set to either give the owner a vibrating massage at a set time or gently drive, for example, the backrest to a favorite position.

The silent alarm is a perfect alternative to the traditional and rather noisy alarm clock. It wakes you up gently and – equally important – allows your partner to snooze.

In-app support and troubleshooting guide
These guides are closely linked to system error codes. In short, this means that instead of just displaying an error code on the screen, the system now says what is wrong, and suggests how to solve it in plain English – or one of the other seven languages available in the app.

Generally, troubleshooting has become much easier in the new Bed Control App. In case of an error message, the user basically has two options:

  1. Accept the error and improve the situation – for example, by removing weight/load if that is what the error message suggests
  2. Activate the troubleshooting guide

The troubleshooting guide helps users solve the most common issues – step-by-step. It could be if the app and bed need re-pairing or if the power has been switched off. All in all, the extended help guides should help bed brands minimize the number of support calls from users. It really is: Help at your fingertips!

Customize app to promote your brand
For manufacturers and bed brands, a Bed Control App in corporate colors and showing company logos can help promote your brand and make your comfort bed even more unique.

The LINAK Bed Control App is available in your preferred app store – in both Android and iOS versions.
