    BabyPing lots of awards

    BabyPing Wi-Fi Baby Video Monitor for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

    At last a wifi video monitor compatible with my iPhone and iPad! The BabyPing Wi-Fi Baby Video Monitor is used with your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, it is the next generation of video baby monitors. You can easily view your child at any time time of day, from anywhere, using your iOS device. All you need is a wifi, 3G or 4G Internet connection. You do not need a separate monitor or to turn your pc on, you do not need a charging dock and you do not need to worry about loss of signal – it even works with wifi range extenders. If you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch you can view your baby with ease.
    Rest assured, setting up this video monitor is easy and the support available from BabyPing is second to none should you require assistance. There are five easy steps to set this up:

    • Download the BabyPing app to your iOS device (no need to open the app just yet).
    • Using the network cable provided, plug one end into your router and one into the camera.
    • Plug the camera in and turn it on
    • Ensure your iOS device is connected to your wifi (not 3G or 4G)
    • Open the BabyPing app on your iOS device, this will find the connected camera and automatically set it up for you. The Baby Ping will now work with your wireless network.

    Night vision example picture of BabyPingOnly devices that are connected to your wireless internet network have access to view the monitor, for additional security you can add password protection. If you would like access through 3G or 4G, you will need the readily downloadable BabyPing+ app and must create a password. The great thing about this is you can give the password to friends and family should you wish – this is particularly helpful if you have a family member living overseas. As an admin user you are able to view the log in times and dates of other members and revoke access should you wish. Once you are connected and your app is up and running, there is nothing else you have to do, in fact, the app continues to run in the background so should you need to be made aware of something (such as your baby crying or a connection problem), this will pop up as a notification on your iOS device.

    BabyPing continuously works in the backgroundThe BabyPing camera is mains powered only so you never have to worry about replacing or recharging batteries, you shouldn’t have any problems locating a nearby plug socket as the cable length is 3 metres long. The built in high definition microphone can be set so you hear every murmur, movement, gurgle and cry or can be adjusted using built in ‘smart filter’ technology to enable only sounds above a set volume to register. Unlike other video or audio baby monitors, there is no background noise. The images are crystal clear thanks to the high definition camera and even the automatic night vision has a clarity and definition which is beyond that offered by standard video monitors, I am really pleased to see that no light is emitted around the lens when in night vision mode (as is the case with most video monitors) – switching automatically to night vision will not disturb your sleeping baby. And of course it is not just your baby who shouldn’t be disturbed unnecessarily, the app, which is constantly connected and continuously running in the background allows you to choose how you want to be notified of such alerts with options of a silent alert or vibration alert available. It was only a matter of time before something this good was made available for iOS users. Baby Ping have kept everything that is great about video monitors and made it better. Here’s some feedback from customers:

    Good Points

    • The image quality is brilliant even in the night vision mode
    • I’ve been able to give access to the camera to my mum who lives overseas
    • If one of us goes to bed and the other stays up we can both watch the baby on our iPhones and/or iPad
    • Superb picture quality and very sensitive to noise.
    • The design has an Apple device feel to it and the set up is very straight forward
    • I was amazed by the simplicity of the set up process.
    • Read more reviews…

    Negative Points

    • You can not buy a standalone monitor to go with it, but the app does run in the background of your iPhone/iPad etc so it’s not too important
    • It doesn’t have talk back or a built in room thermometer.

    product features of Baby PingBabyPing is a high quality video baby monitor for use with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, allowing parents to utilise the latest technology to see and hear their baby 24/7 through a secure, interference-free, wireless WiFi. Combining a Wi-Fi video and audio device, our free dedicated app, and the power of the Apple iOS devices, parents can now enjoy using a functional sleek product that fits in to their lifestyle. BabyPing isn’t designed to just watch your baby occasionally, BabyPing is the first device designed to reassure and give confidence in replacing old-style monitors with the latest modern, safe, technology.

    Who is it good for?

    BabyPing with baby on iphone screenIf you have an iOS device and you are looking for a video baby monitor, this really could be for you. It doesn’t monitor the room temperature or have a talk back function (which I can honestly say I never used) but that really isn’t as big a deal as it sounds. Step into the future and monitor your baby whilst you watch love film or catch up on some emails. The fact you can view this whilst away from home (think date night, a long day at work or distant relatives) is a real selling point for me. If you have an iOS device you quite often use in the evenings, don’t clutter your house with a standard video baby monitor, parent unit and charger dock. You just don’t need to anymore!

    Summer infant secure picture me monitor and camera

    Summer Infant Secure Picture Me Digital Video Monitor

    The Summer Infant Secure Picture Me Digital Video Monitor is impressive. It is a new design when compared to most, or should I say all video monitors available to date. The parent unit looks more like a digital photo frame than a monitor screen and can in fact be used for this purpose.

    Summer infant secure picture me monitor and cameraThe secure picture me is security encrypted, has a range of 100 metres and a large 3.5″ monitor screen, i have not seen any reports of poor reception. The images are clear and vivid and the night vision is good quality as is the sound. This video monitor is ready to go straight from the box, you quite literally plug the camera in, plug the parent unit in (UK and EU plugs included), position the camera and you are good to go. The camera has a tilt facility and can be wall mounted or placed on a flat surface so you shouldn’t have any problems finding the ideal place to view your baby’s cot.
    You have the option of buying two additional cameras so is great if you have twins or a quickly expanding family! The feature I love the most is the ability to take screenshots of your baby direct from live viewing and store them on the parent unit, this can then be used as a digital photo frame when not in use as a monitor screen – up to ten pictures can be stored for this purpose. You will love switching this onto the photo frame view during the day particularly when you have visitors. Now everyone can see how cute your baby is when he/she is asleep!

    Features

    • Record and play photo images of you baby to share with friends and family
    • Stores up to 10 pictures on first in first out basis
    • Colour 3.5″ LCD Screen
    • Night Vision in black and white
    • Option of up to two additional cameras
    • Camera Scanning
    • Sound only option
    • Sound Light – Visual LED traffic lights capture babys every sound
    • Temperature Sensor
    • Table Top or Wall Mounted
    • UK and EU plugs included

    Good Points

    • Video quality is decent, and is obviously designed to work well in very low light
    • Literally just plug it in and go
    • Long cable so easy to move parent unit around
    • Easy to alter sound and brightness etc
    • The whole device is very simple to use
    • The monitor signal goes through the thick stone walls and we get a very clear picture.
    • The additional thermometer is very useful.
    • Captures even slightest voice vibrations in baby’s room.
    • Sound is perfectly clear and it has a great lighting function which goes from green to red depending on the noise level

    Negative Points

    • The only negative point I could find was cosmetic based but even this was forgiven once the unit was turned on and working, “the whole product looks like a toy with a odd webcam (when unboxing) so my fears were growing, however, that changed when,I turned it on. The picture quality is very nice and its night vision is very good”.

    Who is it good for?

    Summer infant additional camera
    I recommend the Summer Infant Secure Picture Me Digital Video Monitor for parents who don’t need their monitor screen to be portable, perhaps if you just plan to use it in your living area of an evening and take to bed with you at night. I know you will love the idea of taking a few pictures of your sleeping baby and displaying them to visitors during the day.
