The First Textile that Gives Parents the Ability to Measure Height and Track Growth in Real-Time At Home Using the Nanit Camera
Nanit, creators of the most advanced baby monitor, is once again modernizing the connected nursery category. Today, the company announced the release of its newest AI-powered solution for parents – Smart Sheets™ – the first textile that allows parents to measure their baby’s height and track their growth using their Nanit camera’s computer vision technology.
Many parents can attest that measuring a wiggly baby with a ruler or tape measure can be difficult, and often inaccurate. With Smart Sheets and Nanit’s award-winning HD nursery cameras, parents can now easily track and monitor their baby’s height and growth progress. Parents simply lay their baby or toddler down on a Smart Sheet in the crib and let Nanit do the work. Parents use the in-app tools to mark the key measurement points on the baby, then Nanit’s advanced computer vision processes the baby’s height based on its calibration against the proprietary pattern printed on the Smart Sheet.
“Nanit was designed to help parents learn about their baby and support their journey during the first few years of a child’s development,” said Nanit CEO Sarah Dorsett. “We are excited to expand our offering with the introduction of Smart Sheets and to provide an incredible, safe new way for parents to easily stay connected to their child’s health and well-being.”
Parents can see a real-time reading of their baby’s height in the Nanit app, and can then store those measurements and track growth progress over time. Further features including a growth chart and time-lapse video compilation will be rolled out later this year.
“Tracking a baby’s height is an important and helpful way to understand their development in between doctor’s visits. This can help provide parents and caregivers with a complete picture of their overall well-being when combined with Nanit’s ability to monitor sleep and breathing motion,” added Dr. Natalie Barnett, Director of Clinical Research at Nanit.
Smart Sheets are safe and effective with no sensors or electronics on the baby’s skin or in their crib. Nanit’s Smart Sheets are made of 100% cotton, machine washable and fit a standard full-size crib mattress (27.5 x 52 in / 70 x 132 cm). Available at launch in Pebble Grey, additional colors options will be released later this year. Smart Sheets will sell for $34.99, and work with all models of Nanit cameras, including the Nanit Original, Nanit Plus and the new Nanit Pro. One sheet will also be bundled into the new Nanit Pro Complete Monitoring System, which includes everything you need to track your baby’s sleep, breathing motion and growth in one package starting at $379.
Smart Sheets are available for presale now on Nanit.com and launching at national retailers in the U.S. and Canada including Amazon, Best Buy, buybuy BABY, Target and more beginning February 21, 2021.
