Proper installation of your Cocoon Cam system is necessary in order for you to receive the most accurate breathing monitoring readings.

Please follow the installation instructions carefully. In just 5 quick steps (5 minutes or less!) you'll be all set up to start monitoring your baby's breathing with your new Cocoon Cam system! 


Cocoon Cam Installation Guide


Step 1: Measure the width of your crib on the long side. Find the center of that measurement, and mark the wall using a piece of tape or a pencil.

Step 2: Measure 5 feet straight up from the surface of the mattress, and mark the wall, using a piece of tape or a pencil.

Step 3: Using the holes in the camera mount as a guide, mark the location of the screw holes with a pencil. Make a small pilot hole (with the point of a screwdriver) over each screw hole location, and then push the provided drywall anchors into the wall. Position the camera on top of the drywall anchors and use the provided screws to secure the camera stand into the drywall anchors and wall. 

*If your walls are not drywall, you will need to use a different anchoring method appropriate for your home's construction. 


Step 4: Plug in the power cord, and install the included cable management clips as desired. If you would prefer to fully encapsulate the cable, we recommend this product.


Step 5: Adjust the camera angle to give a complete view of the crib and only the crib. For best results, the camera must have visibility into all four corners of the mattress, with a "bird's eye" view. Tighten the collar on the camera stand to lock the camera into your desired position.
