Withings (http://www.withings.com) has announced the Smart Baby Monitor. for iPhone users in mind. It doesn’t consist of two physical objects (the camera and the receiver); however it’s a smart sensor (camera) alone that can communicate with any existing connected screen (iPhone, iPad, Smartphone, Mac, PC, tablet, eBook reader, LCDTV, etc.).
The Smart Baby Monitor features a 3MP camera, extra wide view lens and night vision with infrared LEDs. The Smart baby Monitor can detect any event in the room without being moved. The smart sensor gives parents access to information such as audio/video (day and night vision) and ambient parameters (temperature and humidity) remotely from anywhere in the world.
The Smart Baby Monitor is also equipped with a microphone that allows parents to interact and sooth their child even when they’re not physically in the room. Another feature allows parents to control the music (lullabies) that plays in the room through the monitor and can change songs or play-lists right from the living room, the office or elsewhere.
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 product, according to the folks at Withings. The Smart Baby Monitor will adapt itself to the best network path, be it local with Bluetooth, WiFi or wire.
The Smart Baby Monitor will be available in March. Pricing hasn’t been announced.
