To monitor your baby’s Breathing Motion, the Nanit camera tracks and monitors the Breathing Wear pattern as it moves with your baby’s chest movements. If the Nanit camera does not detect Breathing Motion for 20 seconds it will sound an alarm.
The Red Alert will play by default on both your phone and the Nanit camera. It will also make your phone vibrate. You can adjust this through your Nanit app by visiting Breathing Motion in the Settings tab.
At Nanit, your baby's safety is our top priority. Breathing Wear was developed to help you monitor your baby's breathing motion, and in the rare case that they were to stop breathing, let you know so you can take action. And while no technology can be a substitute for proper parental supervision, our system offers a helpful tool for parents who are interested in this service. To ensure you can always receive alerts - no matter if your internet is down, your phone's battery died or any other reason - disabling the alarm on your camera is not an option. Please remember, Breathing Wear is completely optional, so if you're not interested in the alerts, you have the choice to not enable breathing motion monitoring.
