Lower the Sensitivity of Blue and Yellow Notifications

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 settings icon (three lines in the bottom right corner of the app)

2. Then click on Alarm within the Settings Menu

3. Then click on Alarm Preferences within the Alarm menu.

Within the Alarm 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 off, low or recommended.

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 off your Owlet. 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 alerts giving it enough time to reconnect or get a better reading before alerting you about it.

To save your alarm preferences you must press save at the bottom of the page.
