I’ve to admit that I often feel guilty when I have to leave for work leaving my baby behind, especially when she is sleeping. Therefore, I’m always on the lookout for apps which would let me easily watch my child from afar. And I’ve tried a number of such apps in the past but most of them only let me watch what my baby is doing. I couldn’t really talk to my baby using any of these. What’s worse, almost none of these works over 3G – so if I’m on the road, there’s no way for me to monitor my baby. I recently came across the Baby Monitor 3G, which works over WiFi as well as 3G and actually lets me talk to my baby while I’m away.
The Baby Monitor works on a simple principle – you install it on two iPhones, one stays in the baby?s room, and you (the parent) have the other. Once installed, the Baby Monitor app tries to determine your Internet Connectivity mode as shown below.
It then lets you choose whether you want to setup a Baby Station or a Parent Station as shown below.
Once you chose an appropriate mode, the app generates a unique code which you need to enter on the second device to enable secure pairing.
Once you’ve configured both the stations, you can start using Baby Monitor to keep an eye on your baby. You can not only see your baby but also hear and talk to them.
The Baby Monitor app keeps you aware of whether your baby is sleeping or awake as shown below.
The best part – the app lets you talk with your baby no matter where you are.
TappyTaps, the developers of Baby Monitor 3G know that nothing is more important for a parent than ensuring their baby’s safety. To that effect, the app constantly monitors the connection between the parent?s station and the baby station, and notifies the parents immediately when something goes wrong. It will even reconnect to another network should the first network drop.
The Baby Monitor 3G app supports multiple languages including US English, French, German, Czech, Spanish, Dutch. The Baby and Parent Stations should be iPhones (3G or later) running iOS 4.3 or above. Priced at $3.99, the Baby Monitor 3G app provides a cost effective solution to monitoring your baby while you’re away from home.
