The revolutionary new Snuza Pico is the first portable baby movement monitor in the line that allows parents to directly connect to a smartphone or tablet via a Bluetooth App. The Pico easily attaches to a baby’s diaper and monitors abdominal movement using a patented contactless sensor, which means it does not need to be in direct contact with the baby’s skin, in turn reducing false alarms caused by loss of contact. If there is no abdominal movement detected after 15 seconds, the device will vibrate in an effort to rouse the child awake. After 20 seconds of no abdominal movement, the Pico will alarm. Parents can also select an optional movement rate warning, which alerts parents if baby’s abdomen moves less than eight times per minute.
The App, which is Apple and Android compatible, also monitors a baby’s abdominal movement, skin temperature, sleeping position (side, face-down, face up) and fall detector. It also features an on/off button and alerts parents if they become out of range. The Pico unit can be accessed by multiple smartphones so that parents and/or caregivers can monitor multiple Pico units from one or more smartphones.
