TROUBLESHOOTING

If you have issues connecting your smartphone to the device or receive a test failure during the night or the next morning, follow these simple steps which will solve most issues:

  • Uninstall the NightOwl® companion app. Restart your phone after removing the app.
  • Return to the app store, download, and install the app again. Make sure you give the app the permissions needed to complete the installation.
  • WAIT until you are ready for bed before connecting your phone to the charger and starting the app. You should ONLY power on the NightOwl® when instructed by the app. If you power on the device too early and you are still up and about, it may lose connection from your phone and fail before you go to bed.
  • Make sure your phone is within 15 feet of the NightOwl® and is connected to the charger the entire time.
