The Owlet was a revolutionary tool, created to help parents feel some peace when stepping away from a sleeping baby. Now they have an Owlet Cam that will help them feel like they are still there.
SO many of my readers have bought the Owlet, and then asked me what I thought they should do as far as a video monitor.
And now, I have your solution.
I am a big fan of having ONE app to check when you need to do something — and now, with the Owlet, you can do just that!
What is the Owlet Camera?
The Owlet Cam streams HD 1080p video with night vision and two-way audio to your smartphone using a secure, encrypted WiFi connection. It can help you stay informed of your baby’s needs with background audio. Integrates seamlessly with the Owlet Smart Sock in the Owlet App.
Also, this thing looks CRYSTAL clear — no more grainy monitor video, you’ll know exactly what’s going on in there!
What is the Owlet / Owlet Sock
The Owlet is something I have reviewed extensively — and I have a very popular post that shows you how to save on the Owlet and if I think it’s worth it.
In a nutshell, The Owlet sock tracks your baby’s heart rate and oxygen and will alert you if it gets outside set boundaries.
While nothing can prevent sids, it is similar technology to what we use in the hospital (I’m an L&D nurse) to make sure babies in the NICU are safe.
The Owlet Sock is what most people call “The Owlet” — it’s a sock that has an app that can alert you.
Why would I want an Owlet cam?
Yes, you’ll know if their oxygen and heart rate are OK, but you can’t check for other things like:
- Breastfeeding cues
- If they’re awake
- How cute they are when they’re asleep
- AS they get older, if they’re getting into tomfoolery
- If they ever got to sleep
Also, it has two-way sound, so you can talk to your baby — without being in the room (or frankly, at the house — great for working moms!)
Can I save on an Owlet Cam?
YES, while the Owlet Cam is a BRAND NEW product, you can save by buying it WITH an Owlet Sock.
Pricing as of launch:
- Owlet Sock $299 (you can sometimes get an Owlet refurb for $100 off)
- Owlet Cam $149
- Owlet Cam & Sock Bundle $399
That saves you just about $50!
Note: The Owlet Cam is currently only available in Pre-order — that means even if you order now, it’s still going to be a few months before your sock ships. They’re guessing 10-12 weeks from the launch of November 13th. If you order the bundle, they will ship your sock ASAP (and ship the camera when it comes in).
Will I only use the Owlet Cam with my baby?
You can use the Owlet cam as your baby grows. You could even set it up in a teen’s room. You know, because they’re a teenager. 🙂
Other FAQ’s about the Owlet Cam:
When will my Owlet Cam be shipped?
The Owlet Cam will ship 10-12 weeks from November 13th. If you purchased the Cam as part of Smart Sock + Cam bundle, your Smart Sock will ship immediately after the order was placed.
What is the difference between the Smart Sock + Cam vs. just getting the Cam?
The Smart Sock allows parents to do more than hear and see — know if baby is okay. The Smart Sock tracks heart rate, and oxygen levels. These two products integrate seamlessly in the Owlet App as a comprehensive monitoring solution for complete peace of mind.
Do you have to own the Smart Sock to use the Cam?
You do NOT have to own the Smart Sock to use the Cam. The Cam works great alone. However, you will not receive heart rate, or oxygen levels without the Smart Sock. Owlet recommends pairing the products together for the complete baby monitoring solution.
Can I use my HSA/FSA to purchase the Owlet Smart Sock + Cam?
Yes, HSA/FSA can be used for the Owlet Smart Sock + Cam. Additionally, you will recieve $ off when you purchase these products together. You can not just purchase the Owlet Cam with your HSA/FSA funds, though.
Why would I want the Owlet Cam?
It’s all about peace of mind.
Will your child still grow-up happy and healthy without it — yes.
Keep in mind — nothing can prevent SIDS as we don’t know what causes it, but the Owlet can monitor the heart rate and oxygen.
Parents say that it gives them peace of mind when they feel anxiety about leaving their child alone sleeping.
But frankly, you HAVE to leave them alone sleeping, because you need to shower, and get something done. 🙂 #GoNewMoms!
