The design of the device itself is solid -- from the plush insert itself to the curved tracks on the bottom that allow parents to rock their child.

When you do need to store the plug, you can simply insert it into the box at the bottom of one of the legs.

When you set your child in the SmartConnect Sleeper, a harness can be secured around their waist to keep them in place. For your children, this is especially helpful. You can also attach any of the included plastic rings to this harness to add some tactile toys for learning newborns.

The smarts are mostly controlled through the panel on the side of the sleeper. From here, you can control the volume of music and ambient sound, as well as the speed of rocking or vibration.

The app lets you control the device more precisely, selecting exactly what type of ambient noise you'd like, and the volume at which to play it.

The speaker is attached to the control panel, but it is surprisingly high-quality. Sure, it's not a $100 Bluetooth speaker, but it has impressive range for the size.

You can also control the sleeper's movement on the app -- selecting rocking speeds and vibration intensities and patterns. As with the music section of the app, you can set time limits on the settings, so the sleeper stops rocking once they've fallen asleep.

The rocking function itself is one of the more creative ones. Rather than simply vibrate, like many other devices of this sort, the SmartConnect Sleeper has a leg that extends from its base to rock the child to sleep.
