Enter Baby Monitor 3G.
I approached Baby Monitor 3G as the OH & I have been so impressed with their app. We’ve been using the iOS version for about six months and it’s never let us down yet (there was one time we forgot to switch the app on… but that’s our fault, not their’s!).
You can read my original 5* review here, written long before I approached them about sponsorship.
Luckily, they were very excited at the chance to get involved and we started planning. We’ve held off announcing the partnership as they had some exciting to new features coming to the app, just in time for BritMums Live 2015.
So, with one month to go until the big event…
Baby Monitor 3G is a fantastic iOS and Android app that allows you to turn two Apple or Android devices (or one of each) into an audio & video baby monitor using a wifi or your mobile data (3G/4G) network.
The initial set up with your two devices takes just 30 seconds.
“But won’t that use up all my data?” I hear you cry. The guys at Baby Monitor 3G are one step ahead; if you’re using your 3G or 4G network rather than wifi, the app will send you still images using the camera on the baby station device, rather than a livestream video, to conserve your data.
Still not convinced? Baby Monitor 3G guarantee you’ll only use 1MB of data for every hour you use their app using your mobile data package (i.e., on a mobile operator network, not your wifi).
- realtime audio and video monitoring with adjustable volume
- pair two Apple devices, two Android devices or one of each
- soothe your baby from afar using the microphone in your device to talk to your baby
- use your device’s flash to act as a nightlight, which you can activate via the parent station device
- never miss a whimper with vibration alerts; leave your phone locked in your pocked & the app keeps running in the background.
- relax, the app monitors your battery life and connection on both devices being used and alerts you if one is running low or your connection isn’t strong enough.
Baby Monitor 3G is compatible with:
- iPhone, iPad & Apple Watch (£2.99)
- Mac OS X (£4.99)
- Android tablets and smartphones (£2.89)
- Windows 7 coming soon
- Chrome OS coming soon
