How Does the Dream Sock get readings?

The Owlet Dream Sock and the Owlet Dream App together provide a complete sleep improvement solution for Baby and the entire family. The Owlet Dream Sock sensor uses award-winning technology to get readings from your child’s foot to track sleep quality. The Sock sends real-time readings to your phone through the Owlet Dream App. The App also provides tips and developmental insights.


Once connected to wifi, the Dream Sock sensor collects data and sends it to the base station. The base station indicates prompts as needed based on the data sent from the Sock. The base station should be placed in a location where you can hear it if it sounds.


Connect to Wi-Fi

The base station sends information to the Owlet cloud via Wi-Fi. The Owlet cloud enables this data to be shown in the app. This enables real-time readings and prompts on the app from anywhere. The base station will indicate whether or not you have it connected to Wi-Fi.

LAN (Local area network) mode

While we recommend continual Wi-Fi connection, LAN is an option when Wi-Fi is not available. To use LAN mode your phone must be on the same Wi-Fi connection as your base station. Using Wi-Fi, the app establishes an initial connection to the Owlet cloud and will deliver data to the app without re-establishing the connection as long as the app is not closed and the Wi-Fi connection does not change on the app or base.
