Why does Owlet camera turn red?

Answered by James Kissner

The Owlet camera is designed to have a small red LED light on it to indicate that it is plugged in and receiving power. When you plug in your camera, you should see this red light turn on. This is a helpful visual cue to let you know that your camera is functioning properly and ready to be used.

If you are experiencing any issues with your Owlet camera, a good first step is to force-close the Owlet app on your device. This can help to refresh the app and resolve any minor glitches that may be causing the camera to not work properly. To force-close the app, you can typically swipe up from the bottom of your screen (on iPhones) or tap the recent apps button (on Android devices), then swipe the Owlet app off the screen or tap the “X” button.

After force-closing the app, you can relaunch it and see if the camera is functioning correctly. In some cases, simply restarting the app can solve any temporary issues that may be affecting the camera’s performance. If the red light on the camera is still not turning on, there may be other factors at play.

One possible reason for the camera not turning red could be a power issue. Ensure that the camera is properly plugged into a power source and that the power outlet is working correctly. You can try plugging the camera into a different outlet or using a different power cord to see if that resolves the issue.

Another potential reason for the camera not turning red could be a connectivity problem. Make sure that your camera is connected to your Wi-Fi network and that the signal is strong. If you are having trouble connecting the camera to your Wi-Fi, you can try moving the camera closer to your router or resetting your Wi-Fi network.

If you have followed these troubleshooting steps and the camera is still not turning red, it may be helpful to reach out to Owlet customer support for further assistance. They can provide personalized guidance and help troubleshoot any specific issues you may be experiencing with your camera.

The red light on the Owlet camera indicates that it is plugged in and receiving power. If the light is not turning on, try force-closing and relaunching the Owlet app, checking the power source and connectivity, and reaching out to customer support if necessary.
