We’re all constantly on our phones, and we know we need to cut back on that, but what if our phone addiction could be used for good?
The Owlet Cam lets you see and hear your baby from wherever you are, using your smartphone. It basically transforms your phone into a smart baby monitor, so there’s no need to carry around a separate monitor.
Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, when you’ve got your phone on you, you’ve got your baby monitor right with you.
The everything monitor
The Owlet Cam doesn’t just let you see and hear your baby. You can also pair the Owlet Cam with the Owlet Smart Sock to track your baby’s heart rate, oxygen levels, and historical sleep trends. Both products can be purchased separately, but when used together they form the most complete baby monitor.
This is one seriously cool use of technology.
How does the Smart Sock work?
The Smart Sock wraps comfortably around your baby’s little tootsie and the base station provides colour and sound indications to let you know everything is okay.
You’ll be notified via the base station and your Owlet Cam app if your baby’s heart rate or oxygen levels leave the preset zones. When paired with the Cam, the app will share room temperature information, so you can keep an eye on your baby’s comfort factor, no matter what time of day it is.
It’s like carrying peace of mind around in your back pocket.
Night vision, on
This is such a clever piece of technology. Using the Owlet App, the Owlet Cam streams high definition video to your phone over a secure, encrypted WIFI connection- and it’s got night-vision! We’re talking a clear picture of your baby, not some fuzzy image you have to squint to make out.
The camera works in high-definition to give you a super-clear image of your baby in their cot. You can pop into the app for a little peek at your bub whenever you want to check on them (or just because you can’t handle the cuteness when they are peacefully sleeping).
The Owlet Cam also sends audio of your baby’s room to your smartphone, which you can set to play in the background, no matter what you’re doing on your phone.
So, even if you’re having a much-needed chat with a friend, you’ll still hear your bubba the moment they start to stir. Best thing: it’s two-way audio, so you can talk to your baby, too.
Combine that with the reassurance the heart rate and oxygen level tracking from the Smart Sock gives you, and it’s fair to say you’ll feel pretty relaxed when your baby relaxes.
From baby to toddler
As your baby grows, this is one ‘baby’ monitor you will want to keep with you.
Just because our babies grow a little bit older, it doesn’t mean we don’t still need the reassurance that they’re doing okay. You can also position the Owlet Cam’s 130° wide-angle lens up high for a bird’s eye view of your toddler’s room.
This is a really great way to give your child some independent play time in their bedroom, while you still keep an eye on them. And, just quietly, the two-way audio makes for some super-fun eye spy and ‘telephone’ games with your toddler…
