If you are having difficulty connecting your Owlet Base Station to Wifi through the Owlet App, you may be able to connect your Base Station to WiFi through a computer.
Please Note: Owlet products work with dual-band routers (2.4GHz and 5.0 GHz).
- For setup, both your Owlet device and phone or tablet need to be connected on 2.4GHz
- Please perform set-up within 10 feet of your router
- After setup you may move your phone or tablet back to 5GHz
