iBaby Baby Monitors Review for Best Buy!

I horde baby monitors! Truly, that word would describe me to a tee as I presently own 3 different monitors. Actually, 4, but who is counting! However, I am pretty sure I have found one of the  best baby monitors on the market- the iBaby monitor. Since I have mostly all Apple products including the iPad, iPhone, and iTouch- getting this monitor is a no brainer as it is fully compatible with these devices. Even if you don’t have these products, it is PC compatible.

The iHealth iBaby monitor allows you to watch your sleeping baby in the comfort of your own home from your iPad, iPhone, or iTouch. Not only does it allow you to watch your baby from your phone and such, but another family member can also watch the baby through their own iPhone, iPad, or iTouch at the same time. It actually allows you to support up to 4 devices and 4 users simultaneously. It really is an awesome feature to be able to see baby Zane through my phone upstairs and for my husband to use his phone and see him downstairs. All the devices go through the one main camera hooked up where you would like it, to see your baby. 
The way it works is you swipe the screen on your iPhone, iPad, iTouch and the camera will follow whatever lead you take.  It allows you to follow your little one with an up/down, left/right swipe of your fingers. If you are thinking how this could possibly work, let me assure you- it does! Before we set it up in Zane’s room, my husband and I tested it out on each other. I had my iPhone and had my husband sit in the room with the monitor. When I turned on my iPhone, I was able to track basically everything my husband was doing in the room.  When I came closer to see how it worked, I ended up seeing the camera move in all different directions when I was using my fingers to swipe the phone. Truly incredible!
You might be asking how it works and the answer is easy: Wi-Fi. If you have a iPhone or other Apple products, you probably have Wi-Fi so there is no extra step in getting your monitor to work. When you receive the iBaby monitor, you will receive the monitor, AC adapter, ethernet cable, Wi-Fi antenna, camera mounting kit, PC installation CD, and an owner’s manual. Some of the great product features besides the obvious feature of seeing your baby are IR night vision, which ensures clear pictures even in low light, and  motion or sound alerts, which will activate the monitor when the baby movement/crying is detected.  There is two-way audio which we use to calm Zane down at night. He loves hearing mommy’s voice to calm him down and I can do all of this via the monitor. Lastly, you can snap pictures and send to your family with this monitor. 
We have been using this monitor for a couple of weeks now and I have to say, I am in love with it! I keep my iPhone plugged in at night and if he wakes up, I simply turn to my phone to see what is going on. The video and audio quality is  terrific. This monitor gets 5 stars from me!  I highly suggest you check out the iBaby monitor available at Bestbuy for $199.99. It is worth every penny.

    Oh My Goodness!! My kids are all older but I WISH I could have had this Peace of Mind!!!
    I am going to get this for my sister who is pregnant and has a toddler. This will change her life as a protective mom :)

  2. Jenn@Couponing Away Debt says

    I wish they had this 5 yrs ago when my daughter was born…I will very soon not need mine I cant wait!

  3. Katie says

    awww….I love that. I wish there was one of these when my kids were young. I would have loved to watch them sleeping :)

  4. Theresa says

    Having a baby monitor is so helpful for a new mom. I would love one with a camera even now so I can be out of the room when my kids are alone together.

  5. Kecia says

    This baby monitor sounds great! I actually recently saw someone else on Twitter with this, they posted a screenshot of the camera from their iPhone. It's really cool!

  6. Retail Therapy Lounge says

    Oh this sounds fabulous! We don't need a baby monitor anymore but I still like to have a monitor so I can hear what is going on upstairs and this might be great!

  7. Christy says

    This monitor is definitely one I would want if we are blessed with a healthy pregnancy. Nothing beats being able to quickly check in on your baby without attempting to tip toe in and then accidentally waking them.

  8. Our Village is a Little Different says

    This is fantastic.! I wish they had these when my guys were little! Monitors are wonderful – I'll still put one in their room if one of the boys is sick.

  9. Heather McDougle says

    That is really neat! I wish I had one of those when my kids were newborns. We don't use monitors anymore.

  10. Couponista Queen says

    This is a great idea. We used to have to tiptoe into the baby's room to check on them… and now the technology just gets better

  11. Joelyn Morgan says

    That is one amazing monitor, I have a 13 year old, we had nothing like that when my daughter was born!

  12. Felissa Hadas says

    Does this work just inside your house or could you set it up to allow say grandma and grandpa to peek in on the baby too?

  13. Heather from Our Girls Keep Us Moving says

    I totally have too many monitors! We have 5 of them. I wish I would have known about this one before getting our last digital video monitor. What a great idea. Now I know what #6 will be – lol!

  14. Bertha Brown says

    This sounds like a great product. I was very amazed as I read this. We have iphones and Ipads in our home and if we ever decided to have another child this would be a monitor I would very much look in to. Thanks for the review.

  15. Janet K says

    I can't wait until my family gets more into the iphone ipad istuff world!! Maybe by the time baby #2 comes around. :)
