I am so excited about this new application called Baby Monitor 3G! A year or so ago a friend and I were talking about what the perfect baby monitor iOS application would have, and I am here to tell you this is it!
Priced at $3.99, Baby Monitor 3G works with the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. (Any device running iOS 4.2 or higher.) You just need two devices to make the app functional, and the overall application is very user friendly and easy to use.
Here’s how it works: Place one device near your sleeping baby, with your camera pointed towards them. One the device in your child’s room you just click on “Baby Station.” For the device you will be using to listen and watch, just click on “Parent Station”.
Yup, it’s seriously that easy.
Just like a typical baby monitor, the app displays green lights for a quite baby, and red for a baby that is awake and crying or fussing. By clicking on the camera button you can also view live photos or video of your baby.
I was very impressed with the app when it came to the lighted sound bar. Oftentimes when your child is sleeping you may be vacuuming or exercising. This allows you to see that the baby is making noise when you can’t always hear. And when it comes to hearing, the sound quality through the application is fabulous!
Another fabulous feature with this application is the option to talk to your baby. Love it! Just click on the microphone to sing, sooth, or talk your baby through settling down. Babies love to hear your voice, and this is a great feature for moms who might have a little more separation anxiety than baby. 🙂
My absolute favorite Baby Monitor 3G feature is that it’s the first genuine Baby Monitor on the App Store that works over any network – WiFi, 3G, Edge and CDMA. Sweet! This means no more bulky monitors with limited reach. This app can be used anywhere on devices you already take with you. Perfect for families on the go!
