Snuza Halo is a new generation high-tech mobile
baby monitoring device designed to monitor a baby’s
breathing not only in the home environment but
anywhere the baby goes, whether it’s just down the
road to friends and family or away on holiday.

Nappy Placement
lt
The nappy should fit snugly on the baby, the
monitor secured properly onto the top rim of the
nappy. IMPORTANT: The thin upper band needs to
be folded over the thicker portion of the rim of the
nappy. The monitor must be positioned as close to
the navel as possible and the nappy edge needs to
be inserted all the way up the clip of the monitor.
The sensor of the monitor is located at the tip of the
unit (4). It is therefore imperative that it is kept
against the baby’s skin to enable the monitor
sensor to detect breathing movement. According
to the World Health Organisation (WHO), babies
should be placed on their backs to sleep (see
www.snuza.com). Please ensure that your baby is
placed to sleep on its back unless otherwise
advised by your baby’s doctor.

SNUZATM Halo
User Instruction Manual
1. Clip SNUZATM Halo onto the nappy in the area
close to the navel.
2. Important: the sensor must be in contact with
the skin.
3. Switch on by pressing and holding the
ON/OFF button for half a second (1).
4. A start-up test will illuminate the indicator
lights, vibrate the stimulator, play the start-up
tone and perform a battery test.
5. During monitoring, as the baby breathes,
stomach movements are detected. Each
breath is indicated by the movement indicator
which will flash green.
6. Should the sensor not detect breathing
movement for 15 seconds, the unit will vibrate
in an attempt to resume breathing.
7. If breathing movement is then detected as a
result of the vibration the movement indicator
light will flash yellow (instead of green) to
inform you that a breathing interruption had
occurred.
8. If the period of no breathing movement is
longer than 20 seconds, the alarm will be
activated. The alarm indicator light will flash
red in conjunction with the audible alarm. Note
that resuscitation may be required.
9. To turn off the monitor, both the MODE/OFF
and ON/OFF buttons must be pressed
simultaneously. A shutdown tone will be heard.
Turning On and Off
ON: Turn Snuza on by pressing and holding the
ON/OFF Button (1) for approximately half a
second.
OFF: Turn Snuza off by pressing the ON/OFF
Button (1) and the MODE/OFF Button (8)
simultaneously.
Operation
When Snuza Halo is turned on (press and hold the
ON/OFF button (1) for approximately half a
second) a self-test will run during which all the
indicator lights flash in sequence followed by a
short vibration of the breathing stimulator, then a
start-up tone will be heard, followed by a 1 second
pause and finally the battery level will be displayed
by the Battery Indicator Light (3) briefly flashing
one of 3 colours: red, yellow or green, having the
following meaning:
Do not insert anything into the Sound Emission
Hole (2) as damage to the device may result.
When cleaning Snuza, do not pour running water
into this cavity.
Cleaning
Should Snuza Halo become soiled, gently wipe
with a damp cloth to remove any dirt. Snuza Halo
is splash resistant, not waterproof, so please don’t
wash your Snuza Halo.
Storage
When Snuza Halo is not in use, place the monitor
in the protective case for safe storage. Do not
store in a damp area as it may affect the monitor
and cause it to malfunction.

Battery Life
The non-replaceable battery is designed to last for
a 12 month period, being used on average 6 times
per day for a total of 18 hours per day, allowing up
to 4 stimulations per day and 1 alarm per day for
no longer than 20 seconds.

A
If 3 or more ‘incidents’ are detected (movement
detected after the stimulator has been activated), an
incident warning is raised. The incident warning is
characterised by a flashing yellow Movement
Indicator Light (5) and a beep every 2 seconds.
Consult your baby’s doctor. Snuza Halo must be
switched off then back on to reset this condition.
The minimum period between flashes is 1 second for the
first 5 minutes of monitoring (after turning on).
Thereafter, the minimum flash period becomes 3 seconds,
i.e. the breathing indicator will only flash at least every 3
seconds even if breathing is at a higher rate than this.
If re-use is not required, Snuza must be properly
disposed of in accordance with your country’s laws
governing the disposal of Li-SOCl2 batteries.
Alternatively, units returned to our factory will be
refurbished for charity purposes by donating units
to charity organisations (eg Red Cross Children’s
Hospital) and provide impoverished communities in
and around our marketing territories with affordable
access to our products.

Precautions

A
If the period of no breathing movement is longer than
20 seconds, the alarm will be activated. The Alarm
Indicator Light (6) will flash red in conjunction with
the audible alarm. Note that resuscitation may be
required.
If monitoring is required (beyond 1 year) Snuza
Halo may be traded in for a replacement unit. For
further details, please see our trade-in policy at
www.snuza.com/trade-in.php.

Once the self test completes, monitoring mode
commences. During monitoring mode, the Movement
Indicator Light (5) will illuminate as the baby’s
breathing causes the stomach to move. Each breath
is indicated by a green flash1 unless there is a period
of no breathing movement for 15 seconds, in which
case a vibration will be activated in an attempt to
resume breathing. If breathing movement is then
detected as a result of this stimulation the Movement
Indicator Light will flash yellow (instead of green).
This informs you that a breathing interruption had
occurred since the monitor was turned on.

breathing abnormality including apnoea should be
monitored by a doctor. Customers use this monitor

Monitoring Mode
Briefly pressing the MODE button during
monitoring will allow a ‘tick’ to be heard on each
breath. The tick volume has 3 levels and can be
increased by pressing the mode button repeatedly
until the desired tick volume is reached. The ‘tick’
function is turned off by pressing the MODE button
a fourth time, indicated by a lower tone beep.

If the battery is too flat to operate, the battery
indicator light will flash red accompanied by a short
beep every second. Do not use the monitor (See
“Disposal” for further details).

IZ
Careful attention must be paid during the self test to
ensure all functions are working properly and that the
battery level is high enough for proper operation.
If the battery nears depletion during monitoring
mode, the Battery Indicator Light (3) will flash red
on each breath. This is a warning that the battery
will soon be depleted. If the battery becomes
depleted during monitoring mode, the low battery
alarm will sound. This is characterised by a
flashing red Battery Indicator Light (5) and a
simultaneous beep every 2 seconds. Do not use
the monitor. (see Disposal)
