6 Owlet Cam Features to Get Excited About

6 Owlet Cam Features to Get Excited About

The Owlet Cam is the smart, safe way to keep an eye on your baby and their sleep environment. And it’s packed with features that make keeping an eye on your baby even easier. 

Background audio

Turn on the background audio for the Cam and go back to your using your phone however you want. You’ll hear what’s going on in baby’s room even after you close the app, so you won’t miss a thing.

Status light

The status light on your Cam tells you when the device is connected and when a user is accessing the Cam. It’s a helpful way to know at a glance the status of your Cam. To turn the status light on or off, open your Owlet App and click on the Account tab, then 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.

Multiple users

The beauty of the Owlet Cam is that your smartphone is the monitor, which means multiple users can log in and view baby at the same time. No need to keep track of and charge bulky receivers—just share your login and mom, dad, grandma, and the babysitter can all keep an eye on your little one right from their phones. 

Zoom function

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 baby and their sleep environment.

Temperature sensor 

Did you know that babies sleep better in an environment with cooler temperatures? The ideal sleeping environment for babies is between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit. The Smart Cable on the Cam has a built-in temperature sensor that displays the temperature in Fahrenheit on the home screen of the Owlet app. No more guessing whether baby’s room might be too hot or too cold.

Cable guards

Your Owlet Cam comes standard with innovative power cord cable guards that snap over the monitor cords to keep them tethered to the wall and away from little ones. The cable guards make the Owlet Cam the safest baby camera on the market 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 help desk for instructions and a video.

We’re constantly making updates to the Owlet app so make sure you’re using the latest version of the app to enjoy all the Cam features.
