Audio level Threshold under which phone will be mute
Would like a feature where the sounds will mute under a certain threshold. That will allow to monitor a baby for example leaving the phone for the night with the app open and not wake up from every little noise the baby makes.
We do plan on this “audio squelch” — the challenge has been the time and focus to deliver on this feature. We have an upcoming update that should add some power to the player on iOS which can make the squelch much easier.

I would also really like this feature. It would definitely make this app more usable as a baby monitor because having the background noise always on is suboptimal. Having some sort of noise/sound activation to turn on the audio would be great! If you pair this with background audio, OWLR would be the best baby monitor app.
