We’ve asked one of the most talented mommy tech reporters, Natali Morris to give our monitor a whirl. This is what she has to say:
I’ve been testing the new iBaby Monitor M2 and it is impressive! This is definitely my favorite WiFi monitor to date!
Here’s how these WiFi monitors work: You sign the camera onto your home WiFi network (that BETTER BE password protected!!), then you download the app that goes with the camera. Your mobile device then becomes the receiver to the baby monitor, which you can watch whether you are home or not.
The iBaby monitor itself is very reliable – no buggy issues in my experience at all, the app is well designed and easy to use, and the mounting system is WAY better than the Withings, in my opinion.
This is also a pretty affordable system. The monitor costs only $149, compared to the $200 mark that most of these retail. The apps are free and you can use them on an unlimited number of devices so both parents can check in on your sleepy little one around the clock.
