What is the Nurofen FeverSmart temperature monitor?

The Nurofen FeverSmart is an innovative temperature monitor that helps you to keep a close eye on your child’s temperature without disturbing them. It works like a traditional thermometer, but reads the temperature under their armpit, rather than in their mouth or ear, so you won’t have to wake them up to take their temperature. Pop the monitor beneath their armpit as they sleep so it can keep checking their temperature and let you know if there are any changes you should know about. It communicates with your smartphone, letting you keep tabs on your little one as they rest, so you can get on with what you need to do and they can rest easy in their beds.


How will this product help me to monitor my child’s temperature?

The Nurofen FeverSmart monitor is placed beneath your child’s armpit where it will stay without bothering them as they sleep. The metal monitor sits against their skin where it can read their temperature and send the reading to your smartphone via Bluetooth, where you’ll get a notification if their temperature has changed. This means you can keep track of their temperature without having to disturb their much-needed sleep as they recover from whatever is making them unwell.


Why would my child have a fever?

There are lots of reasons why your child might be suffering with a fever, and it usually isn’t anything to worry about. However, if your child is younger than three months old and has a temperature higher than 38 degrees C, or is between 3 – 6 months old and has a temperature of 39 degrees or more, then you should speak to your doctor for advice. Some of the most common causes of a fever in children include:

  • Flu
  • Ear infections
  • Tonsillitis
  • Upper respiratory tract infections (RTIs)
  • Kidney infections
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Roseola, which is a virus that causes temperature and a rash
  • Immunisation fever
  • Other common childhood illnesses, such as chickenpox and whooping cough


What’s included with this product?

This starter kit includes your FeverSmart monitor and everything you’ll need to start monitoring your little one’s temperature without disturbing them as they sleep.

  • Temperature monitor x 1
  • Base station x 1
  • Adhesive patches x 4
  • AAA batteries x 3


Do I need to download an app to make this work?

To use your Nurofen FeverSmart, you’ll have to download the FeverSmart app to your smartphone. Your child’s temperature results will be pinged to the app via Bluetooth so you can read them, track them, and get notifications to tell you whether their temperature has raised.


Is the Nurofen FeverSmart app compatible with my phone?

The FeverSmart app is compatible with most recent smartphones. It’s compatible with Android devices which run Android software 4.3 or later, for example, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC M7. It’s also compatible with the Apple iPhone 5s or later, or with the iPad  Pro 9.7


Where can I download the app?

You can download the FeverSmart app from your phone’s Appstore. For Android devices, you can use the Google Play store, and for iPhones and other Apple devices you can use the App Store.


How will the monitor let me know if my child has a temperature?

If your child’s temperature rises to moderate or high levels, your phone will send you a push notification to let you know that their temperature has changed. It will also send you notifications if the temperature on the monitor drops rapidly, as this could indicate that the monitor has fallen off, or that your child’s arm is no longer covering it, so you can make the adjustments needed to get the monitor working effectively again. You can also use the medication tracker to make note of when you’ve given your child any medication they need, and you can set up a notification reminder to let you know when it’s time to give them another dose.


What temperature should my child be?

The Nurofen FeverSmart is pre-programmed with temperature ranges which will differ depending on the age of your child. When your child’s temperature lies within these ranges, the FeverSmart app will show you one of three colours, green to indicate a normal temperature, yellow to indicate a moderately raised temperature, and red to indicate a high temperature. These ranges should be used as a general rule, as your child’s natural temperature may be slightly different.

How to use the Nurofen FeverSmart temperature monitor

Before using the Nurofen FeverSmart temperature monitor for the first time, make sure you’ve downloaded the FeverSmart smartphone app and put batteries into the Base Station included. To activate the monitor, place it on the base station for at least 15 seconds until the LED light turns on. Use the quick start guide provided to pair the monitor to your phone via Bluetooth. Next, peel the backing from one side of an adhesive patch and attach it to the monitor, aligning the hole in the patch with the metal sensor. Then, remove the backing paper from the other side and use it to stick the monitor to your child’s skin. You should place the monitor under their armpit, making sure it’s stuck entirely to the skin and that your child’s arm is covering the sensor at all times. The monitor will now warm up, which usually takes 8 minutes. Position the base station within 1.5m of your sleeping child, making sure it’s out of their reach, this will increase the range of the monitor’s Bluetooth signal to your phone to around 40m. Now the monitor will get to work, monitoring your child’s temperature and sending you alerts if their temperature has changed. Make sure to check on your child regularly to check for signs and symptoms of illness and to ensure that their arm is covering the monitor at all times.


How long will each adhesive patch last for?

The adhesive patches used to attach the monitor to your child’s skin can last for up to 24 hours of use. This can vary depending on your child’s skin type and you may wish to change the patch more regularly if they have sensitive skin which becomes uncomfortable while using the patch.


Does this product need batteries?

The Base Station of this monitor requires 3 x AAA batteries. You can charge the monitor using the base station, and it usually takes a minimum of 2 hours to charge.


When should this monitor not be used?

The Nurofen FeverSmart is not suitable for use in premature babies, babies who are considered to have a low birth weight, or babies who are small for their gestational age. If your child experiences any skin sensitivity, such as a rash or irritation, while using this product, stop use and ask your doctor for advice. Do not use on broken, damaged, or irritated skin. Avoid applying the adhesive patch to an area which has excessive body hair, as this can make removing the monitor difficult. For indoor use only. Do not submerge in water, and remove monitor before a bath or shower. Keep monitor out of the child’s mouth. Do not use this product at the same time as MRI or CT equipment. This product should not be used to monitor, detect, or diagnose hypothermia. Read the instruction manual which comes with this product carefully before use.


How to store this product

Store in a cool, dry place which is out of direct sunlight. Keep out of sight and reach of children when not in use.
