3 ways to keep an eye on your baby with the EyeOn Baby Camera



Important safety information

The EyeOn Baby Camera has been designed to meet the highest safety standards. However, please make sure that it is set up and used correctly. Below are important safety guidelines you should follow.

Strangulation Hazard: Keep the EyeOn Baby Camera and any attached cords at least 3 feet out of reach of any
children. Keep any attached cords out of your baby’s crib/cot.

Make sure the EyeOn Baby Camera and cord are out of baby’s reach. In general, this means the EyeOn Baby Camera and cord should be placed at least 3 feet away from baby’s crib.

Watch for other cord hazards, too. While you’re securing the EyeOn Baby Camera cord, take a moment to look around for any other strangulation hazards, as well. One common culprit is window blind cords that are within baby’s reach. Cords for other electronics and nursery decor with ribbons or decorative cords may also be a risk.

Don’t place the EyeOn Baby Camera on the cot rail. Even if you think your baby would not touch the EyeOn Baby Camera, it’s too risky to leave it within easy reach of your baby. Even baby camera cords that are secured to
the rail could be yanked or twisted by a curious child.

Use caution if using the wall-mounting for the EyeOn Baby Camera. Be careful not to allow the EyeOn Baby Camera cord to dangle between the cot and a wall. You should use the 3 foot minimum spacing between baby and the cord in this case, too.

Mounting the EyeOn Baby Camera on table tops. Place the EyeOn Baby Camera on a table top no less than 3 feet away from your baby’s crib. Feed the power cord down the back of the table or use wall clips to secure the cord away so your baby cannot reach the cord. Plug in the power cord, check your smartphone or tablet to ensure that you are getting a good view of your child and that there are no obstructions.

As your baby reaches toddlerhood, re-evaluate the EyeOn Baby Camera placement. When little arms get longer and toddlers learn to climb and reach for things, you may need to move the EyeOn Baby Camera to prevent access to the cord.

When using the EyeOn Baby Camera in other places, such as outside.Don’t forget to check those locations to be sure you can place the EyeOn Baby Camera out of baby’s reach.

Do not use the EyeOn Baby Camera near water. Do not use the EyeOn Baby Camera near water (such as bathtub, sink, etc.) and safely keep the baby camera away from heat sources (such as stoves, radiators, etc.).

Make sure there is proper ventilation. Make sure there is proper ventilation around the EyeOn Baby Camera and do not place on sofas, cushions, beds, etc. which may block ventilation.

The EyeOn Baby Camera is not a toy. The EyeOn Baby Camera is not a toy. Do not allow children to play with the camera and do not attempt to disassemble.

The EyeOn Baby Camera is not a babysitter. The EyeOn Baby Camera should only be used as a parenting aid for monitoring your baby or child.Whilst it does have the ability to remote view your baby or child, an adult should always be in the same house with the baby or child in safe conditions. The EyeOn Baby Camera is not a replacement for responsible adult supervision and you should still check on your baby or child regularly.

Adhering to these baby camera safety tips will help you to ensure your child stays safe and you can effectively enjoy the best use of your EyeOn Baby Camera.

How to ensure your EyeOn Baby Camera is secure.

The first step is to make sure you turn on security features during the installation process.

Cleaning your EyeOn Baby Camera.
