Cradlewise 2022 wrapped: The top 10 features we launched this year
By Cradlewise Staff
It’s that time of the year—2022 is coming to an end, and the Cradlewise team is looking back. On our mission to help babies and families get better sleep, we’ve launched some exciting new features in the last year.
Here are our top 10 features launched in 2022 that have made caring for your little one, keeping an eye on them, and ensuring they get the best possible sleep a little easier.
1. Room temperature monitoring
This feature lets you quickly confirm your baby’s room temperature from anywhere, whether you’re at work or watching Netflix down the hall. This handy feature saves you the trouble of constantly checking the thermostat.
Our Spotify integration feature lets you turn your cradle into a speaker, enabling you to pair your crib with the Spotify app.📣
Now you can curate a Spotify playlist for your baby and play them your favorite pop songs, lullabies, nursery rhymes, soothing sounds, or whatever they’re into.
Do they have a song that immediately calms them when they’re about to cry? If you see them fussing on the monitor, you can now play their jam from the kitchen or your office, wherever you are.
3. Custom sleep tracks
Our crib’s built-in sound machine gives you more options than a traditional white noise machine. With our new feature, you can customize white, pink, and brown noise sleep tracks by adding layers of different sounds, like heartbeat, wind, and rain, personalizing them to your little one’s preferences.
4. Dark mode
This is one of our most requested features that we finally got to launch this year. Dark mode is now available in the Cradlewise app!
Dark mode reduces the brightness level on your phone, and it’s a game changer for minimizing light disruptions at night, including those 3 a.m. wakeups when you’re nursing or trying to soothe your baby back to sleep.
5. Camera flip
As your baby grows, they’ll start moving around more in their sleep. With the camera flip feature in our app, you can get a clear view of your baby no matter which side of the cradle they’re closest to. Rest easy knowing that you can keep an eye on your little one, anywhere in their crib.
6. Sensitivity controls
Our crib sensitivity feature determines how quickly and how often your Cradlewise responds to sleep disturbances. It controls the point at which the crib auto-soothes based on your baby’s activity level. You can adjust the crib’s sensitivity from low to high as your baby’s needs change.
We suggest keeping it higher during the first six months because infants move around a lot and may startle themselves awake. We recommend moving to the lower sensitivity once your baby is sleeping more regularly through the night. And as your baby grows older, you can teach them to self-soothe by gradually dialing down the crib sensitivity.
7. Remote streaming
This feature lets you control the cradle’s motion and sound settings from anywhere, including your bed. It also gives you the peace of mind of keeping an eye on your baby even when you can’t be in the room with them. It allows you to monitor your little one’s live video from anywhere, anytime.
8. Audio monitoring
With this feature, get airplay and a choice of sound output on your Cradlewise app. Now even when you’re at work or away from your baby, you can hear their sweet coos and gurgles any time.
9. Sleep insights
We introduced advanced sleep insights for your baby that’ll help you track your baby’s sleep patterns. Keep track of how long your baby slept in the last day, week, and month.
Get notified when your little one stirs, falls asleep, or needs your attention. With these little reminders, we hope to keep you updated on your baby’s day-to-day needs as well as exciting milestones.
We’re looking forward to launching more new features in 2023. Stay tuned!
