8 Amazing Features of the Owlet Cam

May 16, 2022

The Owlet Cam lets you hear, talk to, and see your baby from anywhere! Designed for parents who want flexibility, the Cam’s minimal and versatile design blends into any space, and its magnetic base lets you put it anywhere and easily adjust to always see your baby.

Features of the Owlet Cam

The Owlet Cam gives parents the power to see important details about their baby day and night. Check out just a few of the many features the Owlet Cam has to offer below:

HD Video and 4X Zoom

The Owlet Cam streams HD 1080p video from wherever in the Owlet App to your smartphone. See a crystal-clear image of your baby and their sleep environment anytime, anywhere and enjoy easy, 4X pinch-to-zoom to focus in on what matters. Enjoy the same HD quality from day to night with auto-adjusting night vision so you’ll never have to squint at a fuzzy screen again.

Sounds & Motion Notifications

Never miss a moment with Sound & Motion notifications sent directly to your phone when either sound or motion is detected in your baby’s room. Check whether Baby is just moving around in their sleep or if they’re up from their nap and ready to play—all without going into their room.

Secure Encrypted WiFi

With an AES 128-bit encryption and secure TLS connection, only those you choose can stream footage from your Cam. Our security features make the Cam safer than traditional analog monitors so you can rest easy and check in from anywhere.

Two-Way Audio and Background Audio

Talk to and soothe your baby from anywhere without needing to enter their room. Sometimes, your baby may just need a few calming words to settle back down, and the Cam makes it easy for you to reassure Baby that all is well. Plus, you can play audio from your baby’s room in the background while you use your phone for other tasks so you never have to choose between apps.

Room Temperature Sensor

Check the temperature of your baby’s room in the Owlet App and rest assured knowing baby’s room isn’t too hot or too cold.

Humidity Sensor

In addition to temperature, the Owlet Camera humidity sensor reads humidity levels on the live stream and will send you a lavender sleep assist prompt if the humidity levels in your child’s room reach uncomfortable settings. With the Owlet Cam, humidity is kept in check. The default humidity thresholds place 10% humidity at a “low” level and 90% humidity at a “high” level. You can adjust these levels to meet your desired home and environment conditions, ensuring Baby sleeps comfortably.

Complete Picture of Baby: Heart Rate and Average Oxygen Level

Pair the Owlet Cam with the Dream Sock to monitor your baby’s heart rate and average oxygen level. As the only baby monitor to track both heart rate and oxygen level, the Dream Sock will send you an update on your baby’s oxygen level every 10 minutes.

By pairing the Cam with the Dream Sock, you’ll be able to track a number of your child’s sleep quality indicators—heart rate, oxygen, movement, wakings, noise, room temperature, and humidity—to gain actionable insights that help you build better sleep habits.

With the Owlet Cam, you can rest easy at night so you can be the parent your baby deserves during the day.
