USER MANUAL | SENSE-U BABY
1 READ ME FIRST
- The Sense-U Baby monitor is not a medical device so it is not intended to prevent or monitor a disease, or condition such as Obstructive Apnea.
- Clip Sense-U Baby onto snug fit sleepwear (diaper/pants/etc), right next to belly button, with baby silkscreen in the same direction as your baby to avoid false breathing alarm and wrong position readings.
- One Sense-U Baby monitor can only connect to one smart device at any one time. An optional Sense-U base station supports multiples and keeps baby devices online all the time.
- To avoid disconnection issue, make sure the Sense-U app is running in foreground before you lock the screen and go to sleep.
- Bluetooth of your smart device needs to turn on to connect. Note: For Android phones, please make sure Location is enabled for the Sense-U App in Settings->Connections->Location, and Settings->Apps->Sense-U Baby->Permissions. Or else it may not be able to pair to the device.
- To receive audible alarms on your smartphone, notifications need to switch on for the Sense-U app in Settings->Notifications->Sense-U Baby. For Android device, make sure Media Volume is switched on in Settings->Sounds and vibration->Volume. Make sure your smartphone is not in Do Not Disturb
- Movement from external sources such as a rocking bassinet or travelling in a vehicle may be detected by Sense-U Baby’s device. Sense-U Baby should not be relied upon where external sources of movement are present.
- The monitored baby must sleep in his/her own separate bed as the monitor may detect the abdominal movement of any other person sharing the bed with the baby, and will not alarm as long as it detects movement.
1.2 FITTING GUIDE
Important: Snug fit sleepwear(diaper/pants/etc) is essential for the operation of the Sense-U Baby. The sleepwear should fit snugly on the baby with the Sense-U baby device clipped around belly button. Make sure baby silkscreen on the device is in the same direction as baby's body position to avoid wrong position readings.
Loose fitting sleepwear may cause the monitor to lose contact with the baby and false alarm. If baby sleeps on their side or stomach, the Sense-U Baby should be placed off-center of the navel and the mattress. (Snug fit sleepwear is important to avoid false alarms.)

2. What does double-shaking mean?

3. My device does not flash when I double shake it.
Replace with a new CR2032 coin battery using the blue plastic pry bar in the package.
4. The device cannot pair to my smartphone.
Steps to troubleshoot the pairing issue:
STEP 1. If the indicator does not flash at all when double shaking it, remove the battery and plug in again. Replace with a new battery if still no light turns on.
STEP 2. If the indicator only flashes GREEN once when double shaking it, it means it is already connected to a smartphone or tablet. Log out that device before pairing to a new smartphone.
STEP 3. If the indicator light flashes BLUE but still cannot pair, check if Bluetooth is enabled on your smartphone, then move your device closer to smartphone and try again. If it still does not work, try with another smartphone to see if it is Compatibility issue.
