Belkin has launched the US$89.99 WeMo Baby, a device that turns any iOS phone or tablet into a digital baby monitor.
Powered by Evoz’s baby monitoring service, WeMo Baby works over 3G/4G or Wi-Fi to wirelessly stream audio from your baby’s room to your mobile device no matter your location and without having to carry an additional receiver. Because it works using your own device, you don’t have to worry about carrying around an additional bulky receiver, which frees up hands and space to make you more productive while baby is sleeping, says Jamie Elgie, senior director of product management for Belkin.
To use you plug in WeMo Baby, download the free WeMo Baby app from the Apple App Store, and connect to your existing wireless network. WeMo Baby also works with multiple mobile devices, allowing mom, dad and the babysitter to listen in at the same time.
The free WeMo Baby app powered by Evoz gives you unlimited access to your baby’s status with digital sound.The app also features an optional upgrade service from Evoz that provides advanced monitoring, cry notifications via text or email, cry history information, and analysis of baby’s crying and sleep patterns. The premium service upgrade requires an additional service charge.
