How to set up your owlet camera


We are so happy that you start using your new Owlet Cam! Whether you have your Cam and are ready to set it up, or if you are patiently waiting for it to come in, we are here to make the installation process easy. Before entering, look for and download the New Owlet App on the App Store or Google Play Store so we can get started.

1. Turn on your Owlet camera

Start by connecting the Micro USB end of the Smart Cable to your Owlet Cam. Then connect the standard USB end to the Smart cable to the USB AC adapter and insert it. Choose a outlet near where you want your Owlet Cam to stay.

2. Connect your Owlet camera to your phone and WiFi

Open your New Owlet App and choose to create an Owlet device. When the screen prompts you to select which device to set, click "Owlet Cam". Then you want to make sure your Owlet Cam is in mating mode. Check this first by listening to it to say "ready to pair" and wait for the light on the front of the camera to flash red and blue. Then check and activate your location when asked so we can discover your WiFi network.

3. Use the QR code to complete pairing

On your app screen you should then get a QR code. Keep your phone screen up to the Owlet Cam until you hear a chime. Don't keep it too close or too far away. Look at the picture below for reference. The setting continues automatically after a successful connection. It can take up to two minutes. Wait until you get the screen that says "Mating Successful". Once your Cam has succeeded, it will make you look for updates. So make sure your Owlet Cam uses the latest version. If you have any problems with pairing your Owlet Cam, go to our website or call our team (844) 334-5330 for further assistance.

4. Set up a child profile

When your Cam is paired, it will ask you to connect the device to a child profile. Create a new profile and then enter your Cam into the child profile you created. The app also invites you to name your newly connected device. This helps to distinguish if you have multiple devices connected to your account.

5. Start live streaming

Your Owlet Cam should be built and ready to go! Enjoy playing HD 1080p video and audio from your Cam directly to your smartphone. Stay up-to-date for Cam updates and follow our social sites for additional tips and tricks when using your Owlet Cam.
