I Think I Need The iBaby Wireless Monitor

On Friday morning, my wife gave birth to our second child, albeit seven weeks before she was supposed to. It seems to me that I should probably get one of these wireless baby monitors for when our little princess comes home.

The $249 iBaby monitor looks to be an amazingly comprehensive baby monitor. It has a 350 degree swivelling camera with a 70 degree tilt and two way microphone so you can both speak to your baby and listen to it using the free iOS app, PC or Mac. It can support up to four different people accessing the video feed from different locations, so parents and grandparents can keep tab of baby’s sleeping patterns, and offers automatic alerts for when your baby starts crying or moving. Infrared LEDs on the front of the camera help you to see your child in the middle of the night as well.

The accessory works over 802.11n and offers 640×480 resolution at 30fps streaming (or lower, depending on your connection). Controlling the camera using your iOS device sounds incredibly simple too, with swipes left and right moving the camera side to side, or up and down to adjust the camera’s tilt.

Given my status as a new (second time) dad, this is definitely now joined my wishlist.
