Pensa Nanit Context


Bringing insights to naptime

Cameras can provide parents a view of their baby’s crib, and apps can help new parents track their baby’s sleep. The missing link was a computer vision and machine-learning powered camera that could provide a bird’s eye view along with sleep analysis, personalized tips, & immediate alerts.

PENSA designed Nanit to be an elegant and inviting addition to a nursery. It’s smooth and seamless form floats silently above the crib, providing caregivers with an aerial view of their baby’s activities. Nanit helps users understand - and improve - their baby’s sleep development, all in a streamlined, nursery-friendly product experience.

Nanit is designed to adjust to the changing needs of a family. The Floor Stand and Wall Mount provide the optimal viewing angle and security, while the Multi-Stand can be used for travel and can eventually become a home monitor for the family down the road.
