Today, French technology company Withings announces the US availability of itsSmart Baby Monitor for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The Withings Smart Baby Monitor, including the accompanying application named WithBaby, is a modern take on traditional baby monitors and gives parents a new way to monitor and interact with their children.
The award winning Smart Baby Monitor was developed with both technology and design in mind. Withings has produced a device that not only looks stunning, but also gives parents important information on their child’s environment and allows them to interact with their child remotely and easily. The Smart Baby Monitor detects sound, movement, temperature and humidity levels. Parents can also interact with their baby by speaking through the phone to the monitor, turning on/off lullabies and nightlight.
The design of the product is sleek, modern, simple and unobtrusive. The monitor’s hinge design allows parent to open the camera to activate it or adapt it to the right vision angle. People simply flip the camera shut to turn it off and stop camera monitoring. Unlike traditional monitors, the Withings Smart Baby Monitor was made for iPhone users in mind. It does not consist of two physical objects (the camera and the receiver), however it’s a smart sensor (camera) alone that communicates with the existing connected screen (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch).
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 from Withings.com for $299. The free WithBaby application is available now from the Apple App Store.
