Web App: Production vs. Staging Environments

To provide the best experience possible when developing a new product (apps included), different levels of testing are done. The final step before a new version is moved into production, and is available to you, is to ensure that there are no issues interfering with normal use (often referred to as bugs or glitches). This step essentially mirrors the product version accessible for customer use and is referred to as a stage or staging environment.

If you are using the Owlet Web App that is in a staging environment, we highly recommend moving to the production version available. This will provide a consistent and better experience. 

How to check which Owlet Web App version.

  1. Press and hold the Owlet App icon.
    This brings up the actions menu.
  2. Tap Share Bookmark.
    The share action menu will appear from the bottom of the page.
  3. Verify the web address app.staging.owletcare.com is attached to the Owlet Web App, then delete it from your home page. 

    If the web address says app.owletcare.com, you are using the correct version and no further steps are needed.
