Adjust Notification Sensitivity

Do you ever find yourself waking up in the middle of the night to a Yellow or Blue Notification and just turning off the base station so you can go back to bed?

If so, this feature is for you! It is much safer to reduce the sensitivity of Yellow and Blue Notifications than to turn off your monitor for hours at a time.

This is how you do it:


1. Click on the menu icon (three lines in the bottom right corner of the app)


2. Then click on Settings within the Menu



3. Select Base Station Preferences


Once within the Base Station Preferences page, you can lower the sensitivity of Blue and Yellow Notifications. You can NOT lower the sensitivity of Red Notifications. You can set Blue and Yellow Notifications to Sound Off, Low, or Default.



To lower the sensitivity, just click low. As you do this you will see a disclaimer. Don’t let this scare you. It is better to turn your Blue or Yellow Notifications to low than to turn your Owlet off. This does not affect the accuracy of the Owlet and it will still notify you if there is a red notification. It only delays the blue or yellow notifications, giving it enough time to reconnect or get a better reading before notifying you about it.
