Unlike traditional baby monitors with a parent alert and a child unit, the Withings Smart Baby Monitor operates with the latest technological improvements allowing control from a smartphone application. It comes with a free iOS application available from the App Store: compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and 3 accounts can access the Smart Baby Monitor simultaneously, so both parents and a nanny can all be watching baby, if need be.
You can set up automatic alerts to warn you about sleep disruption problems with your child. You can activate a motion detector alert if your child shows extensive fidgeting patterns. You can also be notified of the child’s noises and cries. Factors like temperature and humidity in the child’s room are also monitored. Just chose your alert type according to your requirements.
If you get an alert with the PTZ technology (Pan-Tilt-Zoom), you can virtually move around the baby’s room. Just slide your finger like you would on a web page to get a full view of your child’s safety. The 3 megapixel video sensor gives you an impressive picture quality drawing on the screen resolution on your iPhone. The wide-angle lens allows you to monitor your child at all times without having to move the baby phone to 90° angle.
