The Owlet Cam is the smart, safe way to watch over your baby and their sleep environment. It’s packed with features that make keeping an eye on your baby even easier.
You’re able to use your phone as you want, with the background audio of the Cam switched on. You’ll hear what’s going on in your baby’s room, even after you close the app, so you won’t miss a thing.
The status light on your Cam tells you when the device is connected and when a user is accessing the Cam, making it a helpful way to know the status of your Cam at a glance. To turn the status light on or off, follow these steps:
- Open your Owlet App
- Click on the Account tab
- Choose the Cam under My Owlet Devices
- Scroll down the page and toggle on and off the status light.
- Check out this helpful guide to the Owlet Cam status light.
The beauty of the Owlet Cam is that your smartphone is the monitor, which means multiple users can log in and check in on your baby at the same time. There is no longer a need to keep track of and charge bulky receivers - just share your login details with your family, friends, and the babysitter so that you can all keep an eye on your little one, right from their phones.
Unlike other video baby monitors, your Owlet Cam has the ability to zoom while maintaining a crystal-clear image. The simple pinch-to-zoom feature lets users zoom in 4x on any area of the screen to get an up-close look at your baby and their sleep environment.
Did you know that babies sleep better in an environment with cooler temperatures? The ideal sleeping environment for babies is between 16-20°C. The Smart Cable on the Cam has a built-in temperature sensor that displays the temperature on the home screen of the Owlet app. No more guessing whether your baby’s room might be too hot or too cold.
Your Owlet Cam comes with innovative power cord cable guards as standard, that snap over monitor cords to keep them tethered to the wall and away from little ones. The cable guards make the Owlet Cam a very safe baby camera because the cords are completely covered end to end. Loose monitor power cords are hazardous and pose a strangulation risk. For more information on how to use your cable guards visit our FAQ’s.
We’re constantly making updates to the Owlet app, available on Apple and Android, so make sure you’re using the latest version of the app to enjoy all the Cam features. If you’re interested in the Smart Sock, you can read all about the features here.
