Cool Features You Didn’t Know About Owlet Smart Sock
March 31, 2020
If using clinically-proven technology to watch over your little one isn’t cool enough, we added in some extra features to your Owlet that you might not know about! Check them out below:
Dim the Base Station Light
If the light from the Base Station is keeping you or your baby up, you can dim the light to a softer glow! You’ll still see the changing colors from notifications, just with less light than the default mode. For instructions visit this page.
Turn off Smart Sock Electronics
Save battery life by turning the Smart Sock off when you’re not using it! Just touch the Smart Sock to the top of the Base Station and the Sock Electronics will shut down. To turn the Smart Sock back on just plug it into the Base Station!
Adjust Base Station Notification Sensitivity and Volume
To adjust the volume on the Base Station or adjust the sensitivity of blue or yellow notifications, go to Account tab in the app > Smart Sock and scroll to the Notification Sensitivity Section. You can adjust the notification sensitivity for yellow and blue notifications from the default to low or sound off, and you’ll still receive notifications on your phone so you can stay in the loop. Keep in mind that red notification preferences cannot be changed.
Smartphone Compatible – View Live Readings
You can view your baby’s live readings from anywhere with your smartphone! If you’re at work or at the store, but still want to check on your baby, just open up the app. You’ll be able to see baby’s heart rate and oxygen.
Owlet is compatible with devices running iOS 8 and higher and Android devices running Android 4.4 (KITKAT) or higher. Pair the Smart Sock with the new Owlet Cam so you can track both your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels while streaming 1080p HD video and sound directly to your phone. It’s the most comprehensive baby monitoring system.
