iBaby Care M7 General Usage

iBaby Care M7 General Usage

Common iBaby Care M7 Questions:

You can use iPhone, iPad or Android devices to install your iBaby Care M7.  (All iOS devices must be running iOS version 6.0 or newer).

Yes. The iBaby Care M7 can be installed using either the 2.4 GHz or 5GHz internet connection. But bands will need to be separated in order for the monitors to successfully install. This is an easy feat and can be done by calling your internet provider.

The iBaby Care M7 has a wide viewing range using the night vision feature that allows you to see within 5 meters (16 feet).

An unlimited number of invited users can access your iBaby Care M7. However, only four users can access the monitor simultaneously.

iBaby Care M7 uses a high definition monitor (1080p HD) to monitor your baby.

iBaby can let you know if your baby’s nursery is too hot or cold by using the temperature sensor. Additionally, iBaby will display the humidity level of your baby’s nursery within the iBaby Care app. The sensors are located in the base of the iBaby.

The back of the iBaby monitor is made of an illuminating plastic that with light up anytime the iBaby powered on.

In order to add a new user, go to the menu button on top left hand side of the iBaby Care app.

Then select View & Invite Users. Now you can invite them by email as well as modify their access. If the user you are inviting has difficulty receiving the email, ask them to first download the iBaby Care app, create an account and give you the email address they used to register. Now follow the steps above.

If the user is already on the list, tap on their email address, delete the user and re-invite.

ATTENTION: iBaby Care app and iBaby website are two different platforms. The account you used on iBaby website does not grant you a login access on the iBaby Care App. You need to create a new account. Please let us know if we can assist you further.

Having multiple devices under the same Wi-Fi connection or band can cause the Wi-Fi signal strength to decrease. This can cause your iBaby Care M7 to freeze, lag or disconnect. If this occurs, we recommend performing a speed test to determine your internet speed test. Your internet upload speed should be at least 2.4 mbps to establish a secure network connection.

Darker rooms will cause the video display to show in black & white. If this is not the case, check your display settings for Night Vision and make sure it is set to AUTO, which should restore the color. To do so go into the iBaby Care App > Settings > Display Settings > Night Vision.

The help button on the iBaby Care M7 controls the moonlight feature if you don’t have your phone around.

  1. Pressing the button once (1) will turn on on the moonlight display
  2. Pressing the button twice (2) Will cause the moonlight display to rotate
  3. Pressing the button thrice (3) Will disable the moonlight display
  4. Holding down the button continuously, will call the mobile device connected to the iBaby Care M7

You can definitely use an LTE network to view your monitor feed. The monitor needs to be connected to your home router to work on your Wi-Fi. Once the monitor is installed, you can access the video feed through a 4G and LTE network from any location as long as you have service.

If the installation on your iBaby Care M7 failed complete a hard reset of the monitor, then re-try installation. To reset your monitor press the back reset button for 30 seconds until you hear the iBaby jingle.

    Motion sensor constantly going off, despite no motion. It seems like as the sun moves around the room, just the shadows moving is triggering the sensor – I have dozens of photos and movies and the only thing changing is the intensity of the sunlight in the room.. Is there a firmware update available for the M7? I can’t seem to find any way to update my camera.

    1. Keren Lopez

      Hi Robert, if there are shadows or movement of other things in the room the motion sensors might go off. Your sensitivity levels might need to be re-adjusted to a lower sensitivity. If this did not help, please contact our customer support team to troubleshoot your monitor at (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PST). Thank you and have a great day!

        Just got the M7 for a shower gift. The installation had worked but I’m not allowed to control the camera angle from my phone. I’ve tried resetting. How do I get it to allow me to see something other than the ceiling?

          Hi Megan,

          Are you the account owner? Was the monitor first installed on a different phone and account? If so, you may only be an invited user and may not have access to control the monitor’s movement. If that’s the case, please have the person who first installed the monitor (account owner) to go into their account and tap settings> invite users > tap on your email. That person can then grant you access by tapping on “control monitor’s movement”.

          Please let me know whether or not this helps. Thank you so much. Have a great rest of your day.

      Just bought the m7 and everything works great except for temperature and humidity readings. They both just say no base? How do I fix this?

        Hi Kyle, I’m so sorry to hear that the temperature and humidity readings aren’t working. Can you please try to push down on the pins? Sometimes, they can get stuck which could result in the ‘no base’ reading. If you do this and it still does not work, you will definitely need a replacement base. Please email our customer support with the subject line: Base Replacement iBaby Care M7 (No base reading) at support@ibabylabs.com. They will be glad to further assist you/

      The only way to turn off the iBaby Care M7 is by unplugging from the outlet. There is no external button to turn off the monitor due to safety concerns. If you have anymore questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support team at (650) 396- 2436 (M-F 9-5PM PST).

      The windows app will not work. It stays on the screen where you enter your username and password but will not progress from there. I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled it multiple times. I have allowed the app to bypass the firewall. But still the same thing. I have also emailed and left messages oh the support phone line but have not gotten back any response. The product would be nice if it worked right but the support it clearly no existent and very frustrating.

          Hi Fatima, thank you for reaching out.

          You can use the iBaby monitor anywhere in the world as long as you have internet or Wi-Fi. The power cord on all iBaby monitors purchased online or in USA stores come with USA receptacles meant to be used with USA power outlets. If you’re in a country that uses different power outlets, you will need to to purchase a separate adapter so it can be used.

          Thank you! If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us again or email our support team at support@ibabylabs.com. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    Hi, our night vision function seems impaired. We have unplugged the M7 to reset and cleaned the camera. What else can we try?

    Reply
    1. Keren Lopez

      Hi Timothy,

      Thank you for reaching out to us. If your iBaby monitor’s night vision is not working properly, it may be due to the level of lighting in the environment where the receiving is installed or the amount of power the monitor is receiving. To troubleshoot the night vision, please follow these steps:

      1. Please check the lighting of the environment where your iBaby monitor is installed. If there is too much ambient light in the area the night vision may not engage.
      2. Make sure your night vision settings are correct by opening the iBabyCare app > Menu > Settings > Display Settings. You will have the option to choose between Auto/ On/ Off, once this is done, please SAVE. You may have to log out, exit your iBabyCare app, and log back in.
      3. If a halo effect is being displayed on your iOS or Android device, the iBaby monitor my be pointed at a reflective surface, preventing night vision from activating. Adjust the camera to point away from reflective surfaces.
      4. Cover the lens of your iBaby monitor and listen for an audible click, or look for the red infrared (IR) LEDs on the front of you baby monitor that should turn on. If the light do not turn on, the iBaby monitor may not be receiving enough power to turn on the IR lights. Connect the camera to a different power adapter or different power outlet.
      5. Finally, please complete a hard reset of the monitor by following these instructions below *SAVE all images/videos before doing a FULL RESET*

      Reset Instructions:

      1. REMOVE monitor from the iBabyCare app and log out of your account in the iBabyCare app.
      Menu>Settings>Delete “iBabyXXXXXXXX” button & Menu>LogOut
      2. Unplug iBaby’s power adapter from the wall outlet, or carefully disconnect the iBaby monitor from the power adapter.
      Allow at least 10 seconds before plugging the power adapter back into the outlet, or reconnecting the iBaby monitor.
      3. Under the USB tab, located at the bottom of your iBaby monitor. Pull tab open, you will then see the USB port and a little black reset button.
      Press and HOLD the RESET button for about a minute or until you hear a jingle.

      If you are still experiencing the same issues with your monitor, please send an email to our customer support: support@ibabylabs.com with the following information:

      * What is your iBaby monitor’s model?
      * Who is your ISP (internet service provider)?

      Hi Johannah,

      To update your firmware, you must first exit out of the App, then proceed to unplug the monitor and immediately plug it back. Please wait 5 minutes for the monitor to download any new firmware updates without opening the iBaby Care App.

      Once the five minutes are up, you can open the app and check the camera firmware update by going into settings > camera & App information.

      As for you not being able to have control of the listening function, please make sure that if you’re an invited user that the account owner has given you access to the listen feature. This can be done on their phone by going into settings > invite & view users and then tapping on your email address.
      The account owner then has the ability to provide you with the listening function.

      If none of these steps help solve this matter, please reach out to our customer support team at support@ibabylabs.com or at (650) 396- 2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PST).

    Hello,
    I wanted to ask whether the iBaby comes with continuous audio monitoring even when your phone is locked or ‘asleep’, so that I can get notified of any noises or crying even when I´m not looking at the video feed myself using the app. Also, does it auto record clips of noise /movement events and saves them for me to review later on? Thanks!

      Hi Maria,

      Yes, you can still listen/ hear your iBaby monitor if your phone is locked or if you’re on a different App. But you will have to make sure that the iBabyCare App is running in the background. The iBaby Monitor can also record 15-second video clip if noise or movement is detected if you choose this option in Alert Settings.

    Hello – we own an M7 and I am unable to reset as its not powering on. It appears the monitor isn’t being powered as the LED is not turning on. Can you please advice on how to get it going again? I’ve rotated it around different power outlets in our house. Thank you.

    Hello,

    We have the iBaby Care M7 and have been receiving Odor Detection alerts. CO2 to be exact. We had another CO2 monitor in our basement by the hot water heater and moved it next to the iBaby Care M7. It did not alarm. We bought an additional CO2 detector and it did not alarm either. The readings have been all over the place and will change from Excellent to Moderate to Unhealthy in a matter of minutes. We also have a “moderate” air quailty reading most of the time. What causes this?

    These are obviously a scary alerts. What exactly does the “Air Quality” gage test for?

    Any information will be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Reply
    1. Keren Lopez

      Hi Hannah, we apologize for the confusion and fear this might have caused in your household.

      However, you do not have to worry about air quality. Any temperature fluctuation or scent can trigger a warning from your iBaby monitor. This can include nail polish varnish, cigarette smoke or even dust particles in the room. It is most likely that the room was too stuffy and the monitor picked that up. To test this make sure that you have ventilation in the room, if there is not enough circulation it will send you an alert. You can open a window/turn on a fan and watch the VOC alert go back to normal.

      If you have any more questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer at support@ibabylabs.com or at (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PST). Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

      Hi Ashley, we apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you. We understand that it can be frustrating when your iBaby monitor is not properly working. However, I believe a hard reset of your monitor and your router will help with the connection issues. Please follow these instructions below:

      ** Before you complete the reset, please save any images or videos to your phone since they will be deleted once the reset is complete.

      1.Open the app and tap the Menu button (upper left)

          Hi Chiaying,

          I apologize for the lack of response from our customer support. This is clearly unacceptable and I will forward your comment to our customer support manager. However, I believe that if you follow these instructions below, you will be able to install your monitors again.

          Since you have changed your router, you will need to complete a hard reset of both your monitors. This is so the iBaby monitors forget the old Wi-Fi and can pick up the new one.

          ** Before you complete the reset, please save any images or videos to your phone since they will be deleted once the reset is complete.
          Repeat these instructions for each monitor:

          1.Open the app and tap the Menu button (upper left)

          2.Select Settings

          3.Scroll down and tap the “Delete ” button
          
4.Hold the black reset button (underneath the USB tab) for 30-60 seconds until you hear the iBaby ringtone or the LED light is blinking red.
          5. Re-install the monitor following the on-screen instructions (Usually customers have more success installing on the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi band).

          If this does not help, please comment back your phone number and we will reach out to you. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    Hi,

    We are so pleased with the modern vibe of this product! Other baby-calls are so old-school compared to this. The image is so clear and I love that we can move the camera from the screen. Very cool.

    We encountered one problem though. I’m trying to get my fiancé to see the monitor from his iPhone XS, by sending him the invite, using his email address. However, he never receives the email invite in his inbox for some reason. We have tried two different email adresses with no success. How do we make this work?

    1. Keren Lopez

      Hi Hanne, I’m so sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you.

      Generally, to invite users you will need to tap on the menu button on the top left hand side of the iBaby Care app.Then select View & Invite Users. This is where you can invite anyone by email as well as modify their access level.

      But since your fiancé is having difficulty receiving the email, please download the iBaby Care app on their iPhone and create an account. Then invite your fiancé by following the steps above with the email address they used to create an account.

      ATTENTION: iBaby Care app and iBaby website are two different platforms. The account you used on iBaby website does not grant you a login access on the iBaby Care App. You need to create a new account. Please let us know if we can assist you further.

    My camera feed will stop loading to my phone and when I go into my babies room, the monitor has a red ring glowing on the front. It’s happened the past two nights and I just end up unplugging it because it really creeps me out. Any idea what is going on?

    Reply
    1. Keren Lopez

      Hi Mandy, I’m so sorry to hear that the issues you’re encountering with your iBaby monitor are frightening.

      Since the video feed is not loading it makes me think it’s an issue with the router. What color is the LED light? If the LED light behind the monitor is red, please complete a hard reset with the instructions below. If the LED light is green, simply unplugging and plugging back in the power adapter will help you see the video feed again.

      *The red ring showing on the front of the monitor is the night vision. This is required to be able to see your baby in the dark. However, if you think this is far too bright and may be a concerning issue, please email our customer support at support@ibabylabs.com with a picture of the monitor under night vision.

      Hard Reset Instructions:

      ** Before you complete the reset, please save any images or videos to your phone since they will be deleted once the reset is complete.

      1.Open the app and tap the Menu button (upper left)

      2.Select Settings

      4.Hold the black reset button (underneath the USB tab) for 30-60 seconds until you hear the iBaby ringtone or until the LED light behind your monitor is flashing red

    Purchased the monitor in April for the birth of my second daughter. Love the monitor and used it almost every day to check on the wife and baby from work. After taking it to a friends house and showing them how cool it was, I brought it home and attempted to get it going. After attempting to get it connected I realized it’s not getting power. Tried resetting it and deleting it from the app to no success. Took it to a friend at work who is much more tech savvy then myself and he is saying the power port has a little plug that goes into the end of the cord to make connection for power. The connection piece is missing. Is this something that is covered under warranty? I purchased it from amazon in April this year.

      Hi Katie, I’m so sorry that this important feature on your iBaby is not functioning properly.

      Are you able to use the listen/speak function? If not, this might be a problem with the speakers. However, if you can still hear and listen, but it’s just really low, please make sure that the sound settings on your phone are set to the highest setting. Usually you can do this by going into settings > sounds depending on what phone you have.

      If you may think it’s the speakers, please send a small video clip with your problem to support@ibabylabs.com. Thank you and I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Hi Keren,

    We bought the iBaby M7 in March and really loved it for our newborn. It worked very well!

    But yesterday (after 4 months of use), it just stopped working completely and wouldn’t turn on – no LED light near the power connector and of course nothing displayed in the app. What happened was that I unplugged the iBaby M7 camera from the wall power socket in the baby’s room and took it/plugged it into another room (which worked fine and which I have done multiple times). Then when I plugged it back into the baby room, in the same wall power socket, nothing happened. Instead of the LED light flashing from red to green and the camera head rotating, nothing happened. Initially I thought there was something wrong with my wall power socket but I confirm that there’s nothing wrong. I tried the other room’s wall power socket, which had just worked, but had no luck as the iBaby M7 camera wouldn’t turn on. I tried plugging and unplugging it again today and still nothing.

    Can you help me in advising what I should do as we’ve only had it for 4 months and should be under warranty? I bought it online on Galaxus (Switzerland’s Amazon).

    Thanks in advance for your help.

      Hi Ting, I’m so sorry to hear that your monitor is no longer powering on.

      We’re happy to tell you that you’re definitely covered under our 1-year warranty. However, we first need to figure out what is preventing the monitor from powering on: the power adapter or the actual monitor. If you have an extra power adapter that would fit the iBaby, please try and test if this turns the monitor on. If it powers on it means you need the power adapter replaced.

      If you don’t have an extra power cord, record a small clip of the monitor plugged in with the power adapter and email it to our customer support. They will then guide you through the replacement process.

      Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

      Hi Katie,

      Unfortunately since the monitor is over the one-year warranty you are not covered. By any chance, did you happen to purchase an extended warranty with your M7? If so, you would still be covered with that. However, if you didn’t and you would still like to purchase an M7 I can offer you 30% off with the code ‘katie30’.

    Our ibaby M7 temperature sensor is off.

    It is currently reading 2.5 degrees Celsius higher than our home thermostats, and 15% lower in humidity.

    Is there a fix for this or should we return it?

    Reply
    1. Keren Lopez

      Hi Karl,

      Thank you for reaching out. Usually, iBaby monitors will read a couple degrees higher than normal since the motor on the monitor is located near the temperature gauge on the base. However, it seems like your monitor is reading a really high temperature. Please email our customer support since this may require a base replacement. You can reach them at support@ibabylabs.com or at (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PDT).

      Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    My baby reached the camera and separated the lens from the body… I put it together, but the light is red (no flashing)

    It is not connected to the app. What can I do?

    1. Keren Lopez

      Hi Lilia, I’m so sorry to hear that.

      Sometime accidents do happen and if dropped the head will pop out. However, if the cords weren’t damaged the monitor should be working.

      The red light on the back of the monitor means that there is no internet connection available. That’s why you cannot view or access the monitor’s video feed. So, to fix this I suggest you complete a hard reset of the monitor following the instructions below:

      ** Before you complete the reset, please save any images or videos to your phone since they will be deleted once the reset is complete.

      1.Open the app and tap the Menu button (upper left)

      2.Select Settings

      3.Scroll down and tap the “Delete ” button

      4.Hold the black reset button (underneath the USB tab) for 30-60 seconds until you hear the iBaby ringtone.
      
5. Re-install the monitor following the on-screen instructions

      Please let me know if this helps your issue. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

      Hi Sam,

      Thank you for reaching out. Please try pressing down on the pins because they get can get stuck overtime. If this doesn’t help at all, you may need to get a replacement base (if you’re under the 1-year warranty) from our customer support. You can reach them at support@ibabylabs.com.

    I have the iBaby M7 and it has worked perfectly for the past 16 months. However, in the last two weeks, the iOS app keeps crashing. I’ve tried this on multiple devices (2iPhones, 3 iPads). And they all crash after a few hours.

    This seems to be an issue with other users if you read the recent Apple AppStore reviews.

    Is there an app update you can make to resolve this issue? Right now I cannot rely on the iBaby as it crashes during the night.

    How do I turn it off when not in use? I have been unplugging it but then when I plug it back in I’m having issues with lag time and notifications, but if I leave it on it constantly goes off with notifications if I want to stay in the room.

      Hi Morgan,

      Thank you for reaching out. Yes, you can turn the monitor on or off without having to unplug the monitor each time. Just head into settings > Device Settings > Power OFF. Then just toggle ‘On’ the Power OFF button to turn off the monitor.

      If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back again. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

        However, our engineers are working to submit a new app update which will be released later today and will resolve this issue entirely.

    Is there a firmware update available on M7? I hear clicking sounds as if a picture is been taken or video when I am in the room.

    Reply
    1. Keren Lopez

      Hi Adriana,

      Thank you for reaching out. The clicking sound you hear is the night vision turning on. This usually happens when there’s a fluctuation in light that causes the night vision to turn on. An example of this is leaving the monitor in a dark room and leaving a bright tv on.

      If you think that something is just not right with the monitor please reach out to our customer support at support@ibabylabs.com with a small video clip of the clicking. They will then be able to offer you some troubleshooting steps. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    We’ve had the M7 since May and it’s worked pretty well without much trouble, but recently it’s begun clicking at random and will only stop it unplugged. Yesterday it also began doing this funky think during the day where it was cycling through night mode and regular mode and some wild-looking pink-hued screen all very rapidly. And it was also clicking while doing this. Please advise.

    Hi. How do I set the upper temperature alert range for this device to be lower than 35 degrees? I can set the lower alert to any value. For the upper alert I can move the slider to any value, but it resets back to 35 degrees after I save the setting.

      Hi Bob,

      Thank you so much for reaching out. I apologize for the difficulty you’ve experienced setting the temperature alert. I believed a hard reset of the monitor will help fix this issue. Also, please make sure that your base is properly inserted (temperature/humidity readings are controlled by the base).

      To reset your monitor, please follow these instructions:

      ** Before you complete the reset, please save any images or videos to your phone since they will be deleted once the reset is complete.

      1.Open the app and tap the Menu button (upper left)

    Hi, do you know if the iBaby Care M7 is compatible with 220v?
    I am living in US (110v) but I need to travel to a country that has 220v.
    Do I only need to use an adapter, or I need to buy a transformer for 220v?

      Hi Sebastian, thank you for reaching out.

      The iBaby Care M7 is not compatible with 220v since it is made to fit US receptacles. So you will need to purchase a separate adapter in order to use the M7 in other countries.

    We recently installed a second iBaby Care M7 for our newborn son. The first one used for our daughter works fine, but on the new second device the speaker does not work, meaning that when we try to speak to our son via the app no sound comes from the M7 device. The microphone does work, and we can hear him via the app. Our first device does not have this problem. We’ve reset the second device but the speaker still does not work.

      Hi Dan,

      I’m sorry to hear the speaker on your new iBaby isn’t working. This definitley should not be happening given that it’s a new monitor. I recommend that you take a video of this issue and email it to our customer support at support@ibabylabs.com.

          Hi Dan,

          I want you to show our support team a short video clip so they can understand that you can listen to your baby, but you can’t use the speak feature. And also because I don’t think it’s a problem with the speaker since you can hear your baby. If there were an issue with the speakers, you wouldn’t be able to hear anything at all.

          From past experiences with other customers, the more information our team has, the quicker you can get the issue resolved.

          But if you don’t want to take a video, please send them a description of the issue.

      I’m so sorry that all your images disappeared. By any chance did you reset your monitor? Usually, when there’s a reset you will need to save your images beforehand because the monitor will erase everything. And sadly after all images and videos are deleted, there’s no way to recover them.

      Hi Alina,

      I’m so sorry to hear this is happening to you. Can you try lowering the resolution of the video feed? Sometimes, LTE data can have a weak signal and if the monitor is set to a high resolution, it will only show up as a loading black screen.

      To lower the resolution open the iBaby Care App > Device Settings > Display Settings > Video Resolution.

      If this does not help you view your monitor on LTE data, please email our customer support at support@ibabylabs.com for more troubleshooting information. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    Is there some way to make the app just give one notification at a time? When I have sound alerts turned on, the app likes to send me three notifications at once every time it goes off (one notification sound, but three separate icons popping up on my phone that need to be independently dismissed). I just need the one!

      Hi Robert,

      I’m so sorry to hear that you keep getting alert notifications. The monitor/app will send you a sound notification with an alert each separate time the sound alert is triggered. If you don’t want to receive as many notifications, we suggest you change the sensitivity settings to the lowest level. This will help avoid getting false alerts.

      Thank you! Hope you have a great rest of your day.

      Hi Adel,

      We’re so happy to hear that you are enjoying our iBaby Care M7. To answer your questions:

      1. Temperature readings are usually one or two degrees higher since the motor of the monitor and the temperature gauge are near each other.
      2. There is a manual. You can view and download it on the support page for the M7.
      3. When pressed, the button on the base will call your telephone so you can easily locate it.

      Thank you! We hope you continue enjoying your monitor. Have a great rest of your day.

    Hi,

    after about a year of owning the M7, I have to say that it is a great device!
    My only problem is with the app (iOS) that crashes frequently after re-launch. Annoying yes, but not a major issue.

    I have a couple of questions/requests:
    – Are there plans to develop a MacOS app? It would be nice to be able to view the baby from the computer without having to pick up the phone… I see there is a Windows app now. What about a MacOS one?
    – Any chance/possibility to support Apple HomeKit? It would be more than welcome, and we wouldn’t need the MacApp in this case 😉

      What is the color LED light behind your monitor? If it’s not flashing red, please press the reset button (located on the back of the monitor) until you hear a jingle or the monitor rotates.

      After you do this, we recommend setting your Wi-Fi to the 2.4 GHz band, since most of our customers report higher installation success.

    When my babysitter tries to create an account and password so I can add her as a user, the app is asking her to setup the monitor with the adapter, etc. what do we need to do for me to be able to grant her access?

      Hi Blaire,

      Thank you for reaching out.

      On your phone and under your own account, please go into settings then tap on invited users. Once you invite her using the email address she used to make her own account, she should be able to see the video feed and not the installation instructions.

      If this is still a bit confusing, please call our customer support at (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5 p.m. PDT), so they can guide you through the steps. Thank you and I hope you have a great rest of your day.

      Hi Fouad,

      Thank you for reaching out. Our iBaby monitor must remain plugged to a power outlet since it will not power on if it’s not connected to a power source. The only monitor that has an external battery is our iBaby M2C Plus. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us again or reach out to our support team at support@ibabylabs.com.

      Thank you and have a great rest of your day!

    Hi,

    My monitor keeps showing red steady light every now and then. Which means I can’t see anything through the app. I guess it’s cos of the Internet. Also the speaker voice is distorted. I want to change the WiFi that’s its connected to and try once again. Can you tell me the process to do that?

    Also I never have any saved video at night. It only records during the day.
    Also I am not sure how many days videos are saved in the media gallery. How to delete the old videos that I no longer want to see.

      Hi Maria, I’m so sorry to hear that your baby fell from her crib. We hope everything is ok with you and your family.

      Firstly, in order to save video alerts, you would have needed to turn those on from the alert settings page in the iBaby Care App. If they were on, then the video would have saved in the iBaby Care App media gallery. You can reach the media gallery by going to the video feed and tapping on the media icon on the top right corner. You will then see the video or images of the alerts.

      If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support at support@ibabylabs.com. Thank you and we hope you have a wonderful day.

      Hi Hussein, thank you for reaching out. The Power OFF feature turns ‘OFF’ the monitor for invited users. You, as the account owner, will still be able to see the entire video feed and use all the features. If you don’t want to have the monitor on at all, you will need to unplug the device from the power source. If you need any more help, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team. Thank you and we hope you have a great rest of your day.

    Hello, it seems the app doesn´t work with iOs & Android at the same time, because i have Iphone and my wife an android for instance i have to uninstall the App from one device and reinstall in the other to use the monitor…its a mess. Is there an issue with the App??

      Hi Boris, thanks for reaching out. Can you please let me know if you’re both using the same account to sign in?

      Because only 1 person can be the Account Owner for each monitor. (The account owner is the person who first installs the monitor on their phone). After that, if you want someone to view the monitor, you must invite them as an invited user through the app. If you don’t do this, one of the phone will not be able to view the monitor.

      You can invite users/ viewers by sending an invite through the app. Each invited user/viewer will then need to register and create their own individual account with the same email address the invitation was sent to.

      Note: When you invite a user, you will not receive a confirmation e-mail. Once the user creates their own personal account, they will use this account to log in and load the video feed.

      If you need guidance on how to do this, please call our customer support and they can guide you step by step to get your iBaby monitor functioning. You can reach them at (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5pm PDT).

      Thank you and have a great rest of your day!
