    I have a metal bed frame, mattress and boxspring. No headboard. What is the best place to put the monitor seeing as I can't put it on the bed frame. I put it on the boxspring on the head end but I don't think this is correct. See attached photos. Thank you!

    That's almost exactly where I put mine. Very curious about the answer.

    Yes its correct.

    If I am being pedantic I would say an inch higher to align with the top edge and if there are two in the bed more towards the middle.

    Hope that helps.
