Keeping an eye on your baby with the help of your smartphone or tablet is easier now as two new baby home monitors have been launched at CES 2012 that was held last week in Las Vegas.
BabyPing, a company based in Britain revealed the its Wi-Fi monitor that allows the parents to hear, monitor and view their baby from a different room using their iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
This can be done by the free app of BabyPing that offers some security features and also alerts the parents if the baby cries, if the iOS monitoring device is out of the range or if the Wi-Fi connection is broken.
The Video Monitor of BabyPing will be launched in UK in the next month and it will be available for a price of GBP 149.99 through Amazon and the BabyPing website.
Not only BabyPing has made this at the CES 2012 as there is another company, Samsung with the same kind of Wi-Fi video baby monitor. This is an IP based monitor that will pair with the home network and it does not require any software.
It records videos that can be uploaded to YouTube instantly. Once you register your camera with Samsung, you can log in and watch the video activity at the SmartCam website of the company from any tablet, computer or smartphone.
This device allows you to monitor your baby as long as you are within a distance of 350 feet. The camera has infrared LED that provides low lighting that is ideal for the baby during sleep. It also has speakers and microphone that can facilitate two way talking.
Samsung also provides free apps for Android and iOS devices and these will be released in March and be available for a price of $149.
These two are accompanies by the other baby monitors like iBaby Montior of iHealth for the iOS devices, Evoz which is a beta version app that will let the parents listen to the baby using their iPhone or iPad from any location and an Android version is also expected to launch soon.
