Baby video monitor iphone app

 

Baby Monitor 3G connects any combination of iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to create a baby monitor system with both audio and video capabilities.

Users designate one device as the Baby Station, which stays in the baby's room and uses the device's built-in camera and microphone to monitor the baby. The other device — the Parent Station — is used to watch and listen.

While the app offers many benefits — consider the convenience associated with packing for travel — there are a few drawbacks to using this system. One device, for instance, is completely unusable while the baby is asleep. Also, a device has to be left behind as the Parent Station for any childcare provider. And since the app works by connecting through a shared Wi-Fi network, there is no ability to stream a constant video from the baby's room when outside of the house, so no checking in from dinner.

"It's intuitive that you'd be able to also use these devices to keep an eye on the one you love the most -- your child."
