8 Owlet Cam Features to Get Excited About

November 16, 2021
The Owlet Cam baby video monitor is a 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. Check it out!
Stream HD video from anywhere
Your smartphone is now your baby monitor! Stream HD video directly to your phone and check on your baby from anywhere. Gone are the days of the outdated, blurry handheld baby monitors—the Cam is the future of baby monitoring.
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.
Sound & motion notifications
Instantly know when you need to check on your baby with sound and motion notifications sent directly to your phone. Get a push notification that notifies you to sound or motion being detected in your baby's room so you can open your app and see if Baby is just moving around in their sleep, or if they're awake and need your attention. This saves you from having to sneak into your baby's room to see if they're awake or not.
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.
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 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. Because our cable guards cover the power cords completely from end to end, the Owlet Cam helps keep Baby safe from loose monitor cords. 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.
