Withings Smart Baby Monitor

That’s a smart monitor for babies, not a monitor for smart babies only. I want to make that clear up front. With the accompanying application, named WithBaby, the Smart Baby Monitor is a modern take on traditional baby monitors, giving parents a new way to monitor and interact with their children (smart or not).

The Smart Baby Monitor detects your child’s sound and movement, and also reports room temperature and humidity levels. Parents can interact with their baby by speaking through the phone to the monitor, and can even turn on/off lullabies and a nightlight.

And they do this all from their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, as the Withings Smart Baby Monitor is a solitary smart sensor (camera) that communicates with the existing connected iDevice screen.

The Smart Baby Monitor features a high-resolution 3MP camera, extra wide view lens and night vision with infrared LEDs. The Smart Baby Monitor’s camera also features a 4X zoom that allows users to zoom in on every detail of the baby’s room and move around it. Night vision mode automatically switches on when dim lighting is detected.

The Smart Baby Monitor is equipped with a two way microphone that allows parents to hear their child at all times and also interact and sooth their child even when they are not physically in the room. If the WithBaby application is closed, parents can still monitor and hear the child at all times while it runs in the background.

Another feature allows parents to control the music (lullabies) that plays in the room through the monitor and can change songs right from the living room, the office or from anywhere in the world. Alarms may also be set to alert parents of baby sleep disruption based on parameters such as activity/movement, audio levels and temperature/humidity. These alarms are completely customizable by the user.

Connectivity is made easy for users so the user never has to get anxious with configuring his/her product. The Withings Smart Baby Monitor can by connected via a Wi-Fi hotspot in your home or via Ethernet cable (with your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch connected to the internet using WiFi or 3G connection). You can also use it via Bluetooth to your phone when you’re not connected to the Internet.

The Smart Baby Monitor is now available for $299, and the accompanying WithBaby iOS app is available now for free from the Apple App Store.
