Night score - Get a quick glimpse at the quality of your child’s night. The night score is symbolized by a colored baby emoticon and contains a short sentence describing your child’s night.

Metric dashboard - Discover if your baby is sleeping well by observing their sleep efficiency, amount of time asleep, number of visits, and sleep onset.

Night time lapse/graph - Watch a time lapse of your child's night and see the moments your child wakes up, falls asleep, receives a visit, and is taken away from their crib in a night; or view these moments on a color-coded graph.


How is the Night score formulated?
The Night score is formulated by the four metrics shown underneath it in the Nanit app. Depending on how the night went for you and your child, the Night score emoticon will either be green, yellow, red, or grey.

 - Your child passed all four metrics and had a Great night.
- Your child passed three of the four metrics and had a Fine night.
- Your child passed two or fewer metrics and had a Rough night.
- There was not enough data to calculate your child’s Night Score.



Sleep Efficiency
The percentage of time your child was asleep in the crib, compared to their total time in the crib. Anything above 70% is considered good.



Time Asleep
The amount of time your child was asleep during the night. Sleep times over 8 hours are considered good.



Visits
The number of times that you physically interacted with your child in the crib area. This includes covering them with a blanket, picking them up, and feeding them. If you go to the crib just to check on your baby, our algorithms detect it, and we won't consider it a visit. Below three visits in one night is considered good.



Sleep Onset
The amount of time it takes for your baby to fall asleep after they’ve been placed in the crib. Any time shorter than 30 minutes is considered good.

Night graph
Using the color-coded graph, quickly see when and how many times your child woke up, fell asleep, received a visit, and was taken away from the crib in a night.

 - Your child woke up.
 - Your child fell asleep.
 - Your child received a visit.
 - Your child was taken away from the crib.
 - The camera disconnected.
