  • I recently received this product and do not recommend it for a baby. You have no way to see your baby at all times except through your phone. It makes it very inconvenient and stressful. Jun 07, 2024

  • Not the best camera. Slight delay and grainy . Came with my monitor. I’m in a neutral zone. I’m sure there’s better. Mar 04, 2024

  • We love the entire Owlet monitor and dream sock system. It’s worth the price for the peace of mind that is brings! Fairly easy to setup, and has wonderful customer support. Jan 29, 2024

  • Use this a lot more than I thought I would it has a great distance for tuning in on your phone to see what’s going on Jan 16, 2024

  • I wish it would do sleep tracking to some degree without the sock. It’s quick to open and load. Lately the background noise on the app turns off. Randomly disconnects when you need it Dec 05, 2023

  • Love our Owlet cam. Being able to save videos and get various notifications to our phone is a life saver. The only thing I wish it had was a monitor as well. We just use an old phone as one. Nov 06, 2023

  • Loved the combo with the Owlet Sock. But alone I'd recommend a monitor with it's own camera, not one you have to use on your phone! Nov 01, 2023

  • This monitor is super easy to use, has a clear visual, and we love that it lets you know if the room is comfortable for the baby! Oct 29, 2023

  • I love the crisp clear picture, and how it's magnetic so it's easy to get the perfect angle! Oct 27, 2023

  • We absolutely love this cam! It shows so many extra things like noise levels and humidity levels. So worth the buy! Oct 27, 2023

    Love that it tells you the temperature, humidity, and sound level. The video does disconnect quite often, which can be frustrating. Oct 24, 2023

    Great baby monitor! I love that this tracks the humidity, temperature, noise, and comfortability of the room. Works hand in hand with the amazing dream sock. Definitely a great purchase. I recommend! Oct 24, 2023

    Not a fan of the delay in video/audio Oct 14, 2023

  • The app hardly works and the quality isn’t great. Definitely better monitors out there for cheaper Aug 10, 2023

  • I hated this camera to be blunt. It cuts out constantly, had terrible picture quality, was slow. Absolutely wouldn’t recommend this as a primary baby monitor. Jun 29, 2023

  • Notifies me if there’s movement, sound, the night vision is great. It tells me the temp of the room and the humidity too. It has a wonderful picture! Apr 11, 2023

  • I wish you had a record feature on here so you can look back on events. The sleek design is nice. Easy setup. Apr 06, 2023

  • I love being able to see my baby from every where. The video quality could be better but it gets the job done. Easy to instal. Mar 11, 2023

  • Moved our daughter to her own room at 3 wks old & felt comfortable because of this. It notified us when she moved or cried, has a clear image, you can talk to them or listen in and app is great. 10/10 Mar 08, 2023

  • I love it. It warns you if your room temperature and humidity is uncomfortable. It’s how I caught wind that my apartment was far too dry and we needed a humidifier. Feb 15, 2023

  • 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

    • Holly B.

    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
