How to check if the breathing wear alert system actually works?

How can we check if the breathing wear actually works? As in how can we make sure the red alerts go off if it detects no breathing?

    I also feel this is a concern with our breathing monitor. I tried to test how the red alerts would work and would artificially move the breathing band to mimic breathing and stopped the breathing movement, and all it did was stating searching for baby with breathing wear. No red alerts. This is honestly concerning. So How would we as parents know that the breathing wear is actually working?

    Hi @sepak,

    Thanks for posting here. When you start Breathing Motion Monitoring, you will see below the live screen saying "Searching for Baby with Breathing Wear". When it detects the baby with Breathing Wear, it will change showing "**** Breaths/Min" and show a green pulse as you can see from the screenshot below.

    The Red Alert will sound the alarm to your phone with sound AND vibration if the camera cannot detect the Breathing Motion for 20 seconds. You can read more about it here: What are Red Alerts?
