High-Resolution Video for a Crisp, Clear Image

The Smart Baby Monitor’s high-resolution video sensor with image stabilization allows you to see every detail of your baby’s room. And with pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) technology, you can move virtually around the nursery. Just slide your finger like you would on a web page to get a full view of your child’s room. Non-deterioration 4X zoom and the pinch zoom effect, which works just like on your iPhone, let you keep an eye on your child’s surroundings at all times.

Monitor in the Dark with Night Mode

With the infrared camera’s night mode, you can monitor children without waking them. As soon as ambient light decreases, night mode automatically switches on so you can check on your child at any time, in dim conditions or at night.

The monitor also comes equipped with a multicolor night-light. Choose a color from your iPhone or use a handy button on the monitor itself.

Clear, Uninterrupted Sound via WithBaby App

The Smart Baby Monitor comes equipped with two microphones to give you clear, uninterrupted sound when listening to your baby. With the free WithBaby app (available for download at the Apple App Store) you can keep one ear on your child as you go about your day.

Once you launch the app on your phone, it will remain running in the background even after you close it.

Talk, Play, and Interact with Your Baby

Use the Smart Baby Monitor to interact with your baby. The monitor’s built-in speaker lets you play a nursery rhyme or comfort your baby with a few reassuring words. A secure connection between your iPhone and the monitor provides clear, interference-free sound. A touchscreen on the monitor allows you to control volume and start or stop a lullaby while you’re in the same room.

Alerts for Noise, Motion, and Temperature Changes

The WithBaby app allows you to be instantly notified on your smartphone when there are changes in noise, movement, temperature, or humidity in your baby’s room. Alert thresholds are easily configurable from the app, and the monitor visually presents sound, motion, and environmental changes so you can keep track of your baby’s comfort.

Monitor at Home or While Away

The Smart Baby Monitor allows you to monitor your baby from any location. Your iPhone can connect to the monitor over Wi-Fi at home or at work and over 3G on the street. It can also be connected via an Ethernet cable or via Bluetooth in locations without an Internet connection (Bluetooth range up to 164 feet).

Product and Compatibility Information

The monitor requires iOS 4 or higher and is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad, iPad 2, iPad 3rd generation, iPod touch 3rd or iPod touch 4th generation.

It comes equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, as well as a carry bag for nights away from home and a white bedside stand so you can easily attach it to your baby’s crib.

The Withings Smart Baby Monitor is backed by a manufacturer’s limited one-year warranty.

Please click on a question to see its answers.

Q:I need a video monitor that does NOT plug into the wall. No cords. Is this monitor an option? Is the “battery” just a power loss back up?

A:

Its like any other battery power device. It will last as long as the batteries. This one is plugged in (that’s how it recharge) but it will last a little while on the battery. Can’t tell how long exactly though.
Not sure why you need battery only but that’s definitely a high-end video monitor, i don’t think it will last very long without a power outlet.

Q:Can I use this camera with a Samsung Note 3? Android 4.4.2

A:

I use it with my Samsung Grand DUO just fine. Google the app for Samsung.

Q:Can anyone tell me how does the night vision works? Because I bought it, and everything works great but at night I can´t see anything.

A:

You should not need to to anything, the camera will switch. At night you should see a ring of red lights around the eye of the camera? If not then it’s not working … If you do it should work just in black and white. Night vision you never get color.
Hope that helps…

Q:Does this work with the Samsung Galaxy?

A:

you can also download the apk directly if your phone is detected as incompatible (as that could just mean they have not tested it yet). http://bit.ly/WithBaby-104

Q:Is there any way to force the app to run on bluetooth, even though the Wi-fi is available and turned on on my device?

A:

I haven’t found a way to run it directly through bluetooth. Once I shut off my wifi I lose the video. I believe the devices connect to the monitor through bluetooth, then to see the video it connects through wifi.

Q:Will this work with the iPhone6?

A:

Mine still works with my 6plus.

Q:Is “Withings Home” is newer or similar to this product? I don’t find this in amazon. I found Withings Home in apple store.

A:

Withings Home is a different product but similar. Its newer than this one, and can be used to monitor your home and also baby. I guess its not out on Amazon yet, I didn’t find it here either. Maybe they have improved on the design but still I see that you can’t easily position the camera for baby.

Q:Can you have several cameras

A:

No

Q:Is it secure? How are hackers blocked from tapping into the stream? (I have one of these and it is great but am interested in this issue).

A:

I’m perry sure it is
No problems with hackers thank goodness
You need a password to log in to the account and have the app

Q:hi I bought this device 3 months ago now my baby is coming,and I tried to use it. But there is no BATTERY.

A:

Ours had a battery. If the description does not specify “battery not included” you should check with the seller or it could be fraud. They all should have batteries included.

Q:My hubby is deployed and this would be pretty neat if he could access this from a laptop. anyone know if this is possible?

A:

Yep–it would definitely work for that as long as you’ve got a connection working! He’d just log in to the Withings account online and you’ll see the baby monitor video feed on your dashboard. He’ll just need to hit play and can see what’s going on in there once connected.

Q:Tell me about the pan and tilt. Does the camera pan and tilt?

A:

No not really. It I lets you zoom in (but only digital zoom, so you don’t really see more detail) and then move the picture on your screen around

Q:Are there any other mounting options or accessories with this other than attaching it to the crib. My baby is big enough to grab it.

A:

Unfortunately, there aren’t many options available, and the one available doesn’t work if your baby’s crib has a very thick frame.
However, the mount has 2 parts, a bottom attachment that attaches to a clip, and the clip itself that attaches to the crib. If you can figure out a way to use the bottom attachment, then you can make your own mount.

Q:Can this thing record video?

A:

No. No recording function, only captures photos from the screen.

Q:What is the range of the monitor?

A:

If you are asking how far you can be and still see our baby on one of your devices. It’s limitless. As long as you have internet access u can see her/him from any where.

Q:I do not have an internet connection at home and I am wondering if this will work or do I need internet? WiFi doesn’t necessarily mean internet.

A:

For me, at home worked perfectly over Bluetooth.

Q:Will this work with only my internal wifi network? Basically, I want to know will it still continue to work in my house if my Internet/server is down

A:

To see the video outside your home, you need the device is connect to wifi. The camera send the image to a encriptred cloud and basically you see the video from this cloud. Of course, in your phone/tablet you need internet connection (wifi or 3G /4G). If the internet is down, you will not able yo see the image unless you are in home near the device, because it had Bluetooth connection.

Q:can i add more than 1 camera to the app? if so how?

A:

Yes, we have four. It’s as easy as setting up the first one.

Q:Can this be used with a windows phone?

A:

I am not sure. We are all iPhones I would check out the App Store and look for with baby app. If they have it you should be set

Q:maximun number of users

A:

3 users at the same time over internet, unlimited users over the same wifi network

check-price-on-amazon

Q:How do i disable the microphone? I don’t want anyone with the app listening in on every conversation we have when we’re in the room.

A:

Turn it off. If you’re in the room, you don’t need it on.

Q:Can multiple remote users have access to the monitor via different mobile devices?

A:

Yes, you can have access to the monitor, listen the baby, talk to the baby, turn on the music, or the light, for different limited time or on and on, you can choose from six different lullabys, or the color of the light, from OS devices, or from Android devices. You can also view the video from a computer. You can access from tree different devices at the same time. I use it from my iPhone, iPad and my Sansung tab for kids.

You can access from tree different devices at the same time. I use it from my iPhone, iPad and my Sansung tab for kids.
The streaming is almost perfect, much better than the other camera I have (a Lorex). The video quality is great.
You can also zoom it, from your device.
I truly recommend this video monitor.
The only problem is that it do not move, because, if it could do that, would be perfect to monitor the baby in other places.
Great quality.
You can use it by wi-fi, or also by 3G or 4G, but on 3G you have to turn it on every 10 min, to prevent you from waist paid data from your mobile service.
You can also use it by Bluetooth, if there’s no internet available.

Q:this product is bivolt?

A:

I’ve taken it to trips internationally and it works everywhere. It comes with 3 plug adaptors for different countries.

Q:Can more than 1 iPhone connect to it? So my husband and I can both have access to it?

A:

yes not only more than one iPhone, but one or more iPhones, a PC, a Mac and an IPad all at the same time, in or out of the house. The one thing you want to be sure of is that you have a decent network reliability security, otherwise anyone from outside your house can access pics of your babies, toddlers, or whatever your looking at. If you don’t understand what I mean, please don’t hesitate to respond back and I will respond in kind, but usually any personal security that comes with a router should suffice, i.e PESII TKIP protocol, or the WPS button, should also do it.

Also each “account comes with a password, so it is doubly protected. I.e. you use an emai address or something like that as a username, and even if someone has access to your wifi, like a quest they have to login to this specific app to gain access to this app. My wife uses her iPhone, I use my iPhone and iPad App and our nanny uses her pc all at the same time.

Q:I already have the Withings Monitor and I would like to add two more cameras, is this possible? If so, where can I buy them?

A:

You’d have to buy additional Withings Monitors. You cannot add non-Withings cameras to your account as they cannot be added to the Withings network.

Q:Does the talk feature work when you are away from home on 3G?

A:

It barely works with 4G LTE when the Withings device is hard wired with ethernet. That said, I highly doubt it’d work using wireless and would be horrid (the word awful being reserved here for the ethernet on 4G LTE combo), if it worked at all, using wires.

Q:Does this offer local streaming over ethernet w/o requiring their servers?

A:

you need to use its smartphone application to view its video stream even on a local network (wired or wireless) and you need to open an account on their servers and this app communicates using that account, but of course it is for free.

Q:is there a monthly fee for viewing via an app?

A:

No, its free

Q:Having problems with my monitor after 6 months of use. Have emailed customer service twice now with no reply and there is no phone #. Any ideas?

A:

Return it. We’ve had nothing but problems with this product. It’s really unreliable which pretty much defeats the point of having a baby monitor. I would suggest looking at the summer infant brand.

Q:How many people can view? mom, dad, grandma and grandpa?

A:

There is no limit to the number of viewers. You can either share your credentials with everyone and you can all view whenever you like or you follow the instructions to create multiple accounts found here: http://withings.zendesk.com/entries/22918956-How-can-I-share-my-access-to-the-Smart-Baby-Monitor-with-family-friends-

check-price-on-amazon

Q:does the app need to be on all the time? or can it run in the background?

A:

There is an option in the settings allowing you to continue running it in the background. so you can still hear the audio. However, once you turn the display off it will no longer run in the background. so you can still use all your other apps make phone calls do whatever you want to do as long as the display is on it will run in the background.

Q:will this work with a Bluetooth capable hearing aid?

A:

nope i dont think so

Q:samsung

A:

Yes

Q:do i have to plug it indirectly to usb? the baby room is not near the fios box.

A:

No it connects through wifi

Q:can i use it in middle east whrere power supply is 220 V?

A:

It’s built for 12v.

Q:I live in an area with frequent power outages. Can anyone comment on battery life for this unit? Does it have some kind of power-save mode?

A:

The battery life is only about 1 hour and it holds all your settings . You can even take it in the car and turn it on and off as you need it and it is all still there. in the car you can plug a inverter for you cigerette light and plug the camera in for lopngher usage. At home if you have long power aoutaages you can use a battery backup and plug it into that. Its a great camera! You will love hearing and talking! Sooo cooolll!!!

Q:Can you mount the camera on a wall?

A:

Nope. It sits flat on a tabletop, or angled with a flip-down kick stand, or clips over the rail of a crib.

Q:Can it be used in Hong Kong (220V) ?

A:

Yes. It also comes with an adaptable pin that can be easily switched if you need to use two pins or three pins in other countries! Btw… Expansys HK (website)sells this monitor too.

Q:Is it compatible with iPhone 5?

A:

Yes. I use it with my iPhone 5.

Q:I want to take it on vacation. Can I set it up with a hotels wifi?

A:

I would not trust the connection at the hotel which is also not secure in most cases. I took this back and have another solution that I use that has much better quality but is also a little more expensive.
