Can I leave my machine plugged in all the time?

To optimise your machine's performance, remember that it's designed for portability and should not be left continuously plugged in when not in use, as this can drain the battery. Avoid overcharging by only keeping it connected when needed for its intended use. The machine can be left on charge over night if needed for more than 10 hours. However, when the machine is not playing or in use, we recommend unplugging it & turning it off, whether during the day or night, to preserve battery life.

Nodiee measures 11 x 11 x 15cm and weighs 320g. 

It’s designed to be lightweight and portable so it doesn’t take up much room.

Does the Smart PRO machine has a temperature display?

While it doesn't include a temperature display, we do have a separate Digital Thermometer available. 

How do I know when it's time to charge my Smart PRO machine?

The small light at the back of the machine is the charging indicator light. If the light is solid blue, that means that the battery is charged. If the light is red and is flashing, that would tell you that it's time to charge the battery.

Our new PRO model allows you to fully customise the machines settings for each program you create. That includes the light colour. Sound or no sound, plus volume level.

Is the smartphone app available for both iPhone and Android?

YES! ✅

Yes, the smartphone app is available from both the App Store and Google Play Store.

Can On-The-Go be used for overnight use at home?

This isn’t just your average portable white noise machine. You can leave your Sleep Assist - On-The-Go plugged into the power for overnight use in your nursery or bedroom. This machine doesn’t offer the same advanced functionality as the Sleep Assist Smart PRO, such as colour light options, app control or sleep trainer. But it is great for when you’re travelling or for sleepovers at the grandparents.

You can play sound without the light or use the light without the sound. It's totally up to you how you want to use it.

It will automatically turn off after 30 seconds. The backlit controls are there to make it easier for you to operate the machine in the dark while you’re trying to juggle a cranky baby or toddler!

What is the decibel range of the speaker?

The Sleep Assist Smart PRO speaker has a maximum output of 110 decibels. However, this decibel measurement is taken from 1 inch away from the speaker. So you would have to put your ear right up to the machine to hear the 110 level.

The exact decibel level you will hear with vary based on the type of sound used, the size of the room and the distance from the speaker to the ear.

You can download an app on your smartphone to provide decibel measures. Please note the readings are estimates only and wont be completeley accurate.

What is the recommended volume/decibel level I should use?

We recommend a safe decibel range of 50-70 to avoid any harm to a child's ears.

To achieve this, keep the machine at least 1 metre away from the child's place of rest and have the volume level around 60-70% on the Sleep Assist Smart PRO.

How far away should I keep the machine?

The recommended safe distance to place the machine is 1 metre away from the child's place of rest.

Can I leave the Nodiee inside the cot while my child sleep?


Please do not leave the machine inside the child place of rest. This could pose as an electrical fire safety hazard. No electronic devices should be sitting on or covered by fabrics such as blankets. 

Always keep the machine outside the cot at least 1 metre away from the child's place of rest.
