No. The Owlet Baby Monitor is meant to help you and your pediatrician be aware of possible indicators of danger, but your baby's safety is your responsibility.
No, the monitor is not always on and it is using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to communicate periodically to your phone. The radio waves generated from the device are more than twenty times below that of the cellphones that are carried in our pockets all day.
You may use it as long as it fits your child's foot. The sock will come in different sizes allowing you to find the sock that best fits your child's foot.
Pulse oximetry is a well-known, non-invasive method used in hospitals around the world to monitor vital signs. The technology uses a small LED light to evaluate heart rate and blood oxygen levels. Pulse oximetry traditionally does not burn or harm patients and we have taken steps to further minimize any risk.
No, there will be an alarm but it is design to alert you and not necessarily wake your child.
Right now you will not be able to access the information. The base station will have light indicators as well as an alarm but you will not be able to access any of the data.
Yes, however there will be substantial delays. Possibly in Summer 2015.
The monitor is worn by your baby while sleeping. It measures your baby's heart rate and oxygen levels then sends that information via Bluetooth 4.0 to a base station within the baby's room. The base station relays the information to the parent's smartphone via wifi.
The sock is powered by rechargeable batteries and you will be notified when batteries are low. Parents will receive alerts as long as the batteries have power. We are constantly working to improve battery life. Because we are still making changes we don't know exactly how long although right now right can run 18 straight hours before recharging.
Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy (2.4 GHz). The Owlet Monitor will not receive interference from home alarms, cellphones or other electronics.
Eventually yes but for version 1 it will only be compatible with iOS devices. Our iPhone app has been developed and will be released into the App Store before the monitor ships. We hope to have an Android version within a few months of shipping.
Yes, the electronics can be pulled out and the fabric can be washed separately.
The Owlet Monitor will begin shipping in May 2015. You can reserve your Owlet Monitor today. Because of high demand, we will ship in batches. If you need it in May or June don't wait to order because the batches will be full before then.
Owlet was not designed for twins. We do plan on developing a compatible version. Right now the app only works with one iOS device at a time. You can use two Owlet monitors in your home, you just need two base stations, two socks, and two iOS devices.
The base station is your primary alert. If you want to make sure get alerts, make sure you are within hearing distance of the base stations. You can also receive alerts on your phone via WiFi.
