Dream with Health Notifications: Network Requirements

A Wi-Fi network is required to use Dream Sock with the Owlet Dream App, as it allows the hardware to communicate information such as Sleep States, notifications, and battery status with the app and with cloud servers. The Owlet Dream App will not function properly if the Base Station is not able to connect to a reliable Wi-Fi network. A 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11 (b/g/n) Wi-Fi network using WPA2 or similar encryption method is required. Most home routers that operate at 5 GHz will also operate at 2.4 GHz. When connecting your devices, pick the 2.4 GHz connection.

Dream Sock can remember up to 8 Wi-Fi networks, which makes it easy to move the system between locations (e.g., primary home, grandmother’s house, babysitter’s house).

To add a new Wi-Fi network to a device that has already been set up, refer to Section 5.

 NOTE: Dream Sock cannot be used with networks that require authentication via a browser. These include many public networks like those found in hotels and airports.

The Sensor and the Base Station communicate via BLE (Bluetooth® Low Energy) 4.2. This communication is handled automatically, and no additional hardware is required.
