FAQ 1 : The camera does not cover the whole mattress properly at 3 feet height from the mattress. Can I mount the Cocoon Cam higher?
For newborns we do recommend that the camera about 3ft from mattress. During this age, usually the mattress is in the highest position in the crib but also the baby does not move around a lot. So as long as the baby is placed in cameras field of view, it should work just fine.
When they get older and start moving around, parents usually lower the height of the mattress. When you lower the mattress, the camera can actually now can cover the whole mattress in the same position. And you dont have to move the camera once mounted. For 2 year old babies, the camera can work up to 5 feet away from the baby.
