The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval program is an independent testing procedure conducted over an eight-week period. TNPC gives parents, children and educators the opportunity to examine a variety of submitted products. In this case, the testers used Cocoon Cam to check on their own infants while asleep in their cribs.The overwhelmingly positive reactions from parents led to Cocoon Cam being granted the prestigious Seal of Approval during the Spring 2017 assessment.

“The baby monitor market is full of options,” begins The National Parenting Center’s review of Cocoon Cam, “and can often be confusing for new parents. Our testers were delighted to be able to review this new offering. An easy to set up and easy to use system with a monitor that offered them peace of mind thanks to a video camera that provides a very clear picture. There is also a breathing monitor that works without attaching any sensors or additional devices.”

“Cocoon Cam does this by detecting the baby’s chest movements. This amazed parents not only for the advanced technology but also for how accurate it was.

You don’t even have to be in the house to use it. This is something parents found quite handy when out and a babysitter or family member is watching their child. Just open up the app on the phone and check to see what’s going on in the crib. The two-way speaker is a great feature that works well.”

Cocoon Cam lets parents view their baby at any time, day or night, through a smartphone application (iOS and Android) that provides real time smart alerts when the baby’s breathing is irregular. In addition, there is 2-way audio to listen and talk to the baby from anywhere. Unlike other baby health tracking technologies, Cocoon Cam is completely passive and does not require any mattress pad, wearable electronics or pinging the baby with radar or sonar signals. Cocoon Cam works with powerful artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms using cloud computing. Cocoon Cam keeps evolving through software upgrades with additional features due to be released in the future.

Cocoon Cam is a Silicon Valley-based technology company using computer vision for remote health monitoring. The company’s first product is a category-defining baby monitor that detects a baby’s vitals purely by passively collecting a video feed from the baby monitor and analyzing the data in the cloud. Parents gain instant access, via their mobile devices, to longitudinal data and real-time alerts for metrics such as breathing, temperature fluctuations, heart rate and movement. Unlike competing technologies in the baby monitoring space, Cocoon Cam is completely non-invasive and requires no connected wires or wearables. Cocoon Cam has received the ‘Seal of Approval’ of the National Parenting Center, an R&D grant from the National Science Foundation and has completed IRB-approved research validation studies at UC San Diego and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.
