  • I didn’t like that you had to have the app open and running to hear the baby. If I had to switch to text or a different screen I wasn’t able to see/hear baby. Picture had to load every time app opened Nov 18, 2022

  • Pros: Camera quality is good, convenient to have the monitor on your phone so you can see baby anytime Cons: constantly disconnects. I wake up in the morning realizing owlet disconnected overnight. Nov 18, 2022

  • HATE. This has got to be the worst wifi camera/app ever invented. App crashes all the time, freezes, or won't load camera. Camera also needs to be unplugged & plugged back in often to get it to work. Oct 18, 2022

    Great quality, just wish there were more customization options. Sep 08, 2022

    DISAPPOINTMENT! I love all the features however, it stops working in the night all the time and sound goes in and out. I don't like that I have to exit out of the cam app to use my phone. DO NOT BUY! Jul 06, 2022

  • love the video quality and temp, but the app is terrible and is offline a lot. Also, no pan/tilt feature. But does the basic video and sound of the baby. Also wish it had a patent station vs phone. Jul 05, 2022

  • I have the sock and monitor combo. I love the sock but the camera can go in and out at times with wifi. Would recommend the sock but not the camera. Apr 10, 2022

  • When it works this is a great monitor. It always connectivity issues since it connects through wifi. Our wifi is fine and all other devices will work but the camera is always loading. DO NOT BUY Mar 13, 2022

  • We use this to check in on baby while in another room and also to check the room temperature to make sure baby doesn’t overheat. Definitely a must have! Feb 23, 2022

  • This camera and Application are unreliable. Even though the router is in the nursery, the camera constantly has WIFI issues making us unable to see baby clearly or at all. Feb 18, 2022

  • I haven’t used it yet but I’ve heard great things about this monitor Feb 11, 2022

  • I love so easy to open app and see baby. Only this I dislike has to use 2.4 speed wifi which lacks for 2 seconds. Jan 28, 2022

    Sometimes the camera works, sometimes it doesn’t. Also wish there was a record feature. It’s a nice simple design and works with our owlet sock. Jan 06, 2022

  • Love this! A new parents must have! Easy to use app and provides the room temperature. Oct 14, 2021

  • Really nice high end product. We love this monitor. Oct 14, 2021

  • Best purchase so far! Sep 17, 2021

  • Love our owlet baby monitor, however, it tends to pick up every little bit of noise and motion regardless if we’re in the nursery or not. The pic quality is great. Love how I can pull up from my phone Sep 08, 2021

  • Great picture, full color and sound, takes temp of room (helpful in winter and summer), wide pan, and streams right to my phone. Just wish there was a screen minimizing option. Love with owlet sock. Sep 01, 2021

    Ugh I want to love this but unfortunately it is so glitchy. We love being able to pull it up on our phone and that the sock is connected but half the time it will cut off and not load. Aug 12, 2021

  • Good quality video w/ night vision, can adjust sensitivity for notifications but sometimes it’s all or nothing with what sounds it picks up. Tells room temp which is nice. Magnetic base is helpful Jul 07, 2021

  • This item I could take or leave. I love that the camera is linked to my phone however app can be glitchy and sound notifications aren't great. I actually broke out my old levana monitor to use w it. Jul 01, 2021

  • The camera always had poor connection even though my home has strong wifi. Every time I opened the app it will take a long while for the camera to load May 25, 2021

    I love it! I love that I can see the sock & monitor all in one app. Deff gives me a piece of mind! May 21, 2021

  • Have two sets because I have twins and absolutely love the quality at night and during the day! May 10, 2021

  • If you love to splurge like me, then this is for you. I love how you can talk back to baby and hear them as well. I just don’t like how you can’t do both at the same time. Other than that it’s clear. May 06, 2021

  • I love this camera. It shows you if the room is too hot or cold. I use it in my living room to check up on baby when someone else is watching her. Apr 09, 2021

  • This camera was ok, but had to return since we weren't using the sock and it was a bundle. Apr 01, 2021

  • loved being able to look at my babes napping while I was at work. Mar 17, 2021

  • This is great for when you are awake. The picture is amazing. I used another camera for night time so my phone wasn’t running 24/7 Mar 08, 2021

  • I had a lot of connection issues with this camera. The app isn’t great and I had to keep readjusting settings. I also wasn’t impressed with the video quality. Mar 03, 2021

  • For the money I was hoping for better quality image. I was bummed you have little range with this camera. I can only see half of my daughters room Feb 28, 2021

  • Great picture. Only thing inwould change is I wish it was mobile Jan 29, 2021

  • I love this camera, good quality! The speaking function doesn't work the best, and I wish i could record footage easier and transfer it rather than the SD card. Overall it does what its for. Jan 20, 2021

  • I got this to go with our Owlet smart sock and, let me tell you, I don't regret it! It has spectacular clarity, I can see and hear the entire nursery, and the sock and camera feed go to the app. Oct 03, 2020

  • Great camera and the quality in the dark is great. I love that I can use the app to check on my baby and how secure the camera is. Oct 01, 2020

  • Really great picture even in night vision. The room temperature reading is very accurate and it is easy to set up. All around great camera. Sep 29, 2020

  • The app is great and I like how it integrates with the sock. The camera image is a little fuzzy though and I can’t see I’d she’s breathing. The sock covers that fear though. Image may also be our wifi Sep 22, 2020

  • Very clear at night and great. It’s the app that’s horrendous regardless of how many times they have updated it they just can’t get it right! Sep 05, 2020

  • Perfect! I love that I can check on my son on any device and doesn't have to be stuck on a charge. I use my ipad. Be sure to place it on background sound and you have have it on while on your phone! Aug 07, 2020
