In October 2019, we announced the launch of the Owlet Cam - one of the most powerful pieces of smart parenting tech that you will own, all in a handy baby monitor.
We know that when it comes to choosing your perfect baby monitor, there are lots of different factors to consider: functionality, quality, price and design. We’ve put together a handy guide to highlight why the Owlet Cam should be the one for you over other baby monitors on the market.
See and hear your little one from anywhere
The Owlet Cam connects directly to your smartphone so you can literally see your baby from anywhere. Being tethered to a traditional display can be frustrating so we use the device most people are never without - their smartphone. Using the Owlet app allows you to see and hear your little one from anywhere. Plus, we’re always working to build new features parents love, so the Owlet app gets even smarter.
During our initial research, we were shocked to see how many families left exposed wires from their baby monitors near the cot. As a company that helps parents keep their children safe, we felt this was unacceptable. The Owlet Cam comes with a cable guard kit so you can safely mount the camera right above the cot. When you don’t need it mounted there, you can remove the guards and the Cam can be safely transferred to a bedside stand or shelf that is out of reach from your little one.
Access to the full picture
Most baby monitors add several features like tilt, pan and zoom, primarily because the quality of the LCD screen makes it difficult to see details of the baby in the cot otherwise. We find people use their video camera to do two things - first to make sure that their kids are okay and second, to see whether they’re awake or not. With many other baby monitors, the picture quality is so low that it’s hard to see with the resolution you’re getting. There’s nothing more frustrating than squinting at a bright screen in a dark room in the middle of the night to see what’s going on with your baby. Owlet offers full HD 1080p picture quality, pinch-to-zoom and clear night vision so you won’t be left wondering.
The Owlet Cam was designed to be functional without sacrificing form. We believe technology should blend into our lives so seamlessly that it goes practically unnoticed until you need it. Unlike many baby monitors, the Owlet Cam looks cool and modern. It features a magnetic base that allows for precision adjustments and the flexibility to place it practically anywhere. Our CEO puts it perfectly, “Why is it that I think of Star Wars when I look at most baby monitors? We know how important it is for you to have a nursery and a home you are proud of. Owlet’s award-winning design fits into the nursery and your home.”
All in one place
Instead of fighting over a single display with a short battery life, Owlet makes it easy to have multiple cameras connected to the same app account so you only need to check in on one place, even if you have more than one baby. Not only does it let you have all of your little ones in one app, but sharing your app login info with those you trust lets your partner, grandparent or babysitter help keep an eye on them too.
New features available
Check on your little one and easily go back to sleep with *Dark Mode for your Owlet App! Say goodbye to bright phone screens when you open your app at night by simply switching your app to Dark Mode on your iOS device.
You can now get notifications when your Owlet Cam detects sound and motion events. Enjoy added peace of mind while your child sleeps or plays in the other room. Sound and motion notifications can be customised to your home's needs by adjusting sensitivity thresholds and/or frequency of notifications so you never feel too far from your little one.
Integrates seamlessly with the Owlet Smart Sock
The Owlet Smart Sock integrates seamlessly with the Owlet Cam. When working together, this smart tech gives parents the most sophisticated monitoring system on the market.
Pairing the two together lets you see your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels while streaming video and audio right to your phone. The Owlet Sock and Cam are available to buy in a Bundle deal, saving you £39 compared to buying them separately.
