Baby monitors explained

Baby monitors are essential for new parents and caregivers to help keep children safe in the cot. The monitor consists of a transmitter (positioned by the cot or bassinet) and a receiver(parent unit) that lets you watch or listen to your child from afar. Monitors range from simple audio devices to the latest technology cameras and sensors that track sleep trends and give various insights into your baby’s wellbeing. Monitor technology has evolved considerably in recent decades and now includes features like Wifi connectivity, Bluetooth, full-colour HD video, pulse oximetry readings, sleep analytics and much more.


How the Owlet smart sock 3 works

Parents across Australia enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that the latest technological innovations are monitoring their baby’s wellbeing. The Owlet Smart Sock is a device that gives you valuable insights into your baby’s health. How does it work?

  • Attach the fabric sock to your child’s foot before sleep.
  • The sock sensor uses pulse oximetry to gather data while your baby sleeps.
  • Electronics send your baby’s heart rate and oxygen level to the base station.
  • The base station sounds an alert if readings fall outside set parameters.
  • The base station relays real-time information to the Owlet app on your smartphone (as long as it is connected to wifi).

Advantages of the Owlet smart sock

A traditional baby monitor can only give you so much information. By tracking your baby’s heart rate and oxygen, the Smart Sock lets you know the quality of your baby's sleep. Plus, you can use the sleep trend analysis to create and adapt your routines. Many baby monitors require you to constantly observe the monitor, whereas the Owlet Smart Sock takes a proactive approach, notifying you when something is out of the ordinary.
