Product Information

  • Overview

    The iBaby Monitor M2 from iHealth is as mobile as your baby. Thanks to the magnetic base and rechargeable battery you can shift the camera to whatever room your baby is in for up to two hours. It also offers two-way audio, so you can communicate with your baby—no external speakers required.

    Never miss a memory

    The free iBaby View app saves photos to your iPhone and app libraries automatically whenever your baby's movement and sounds activate the motion sensors. And you're able to set the sensitivity level of the sensors depending on how much activity you want to capture. Up to four devices and four users can share control, so parents, grandparents, or caregivers can check in on baby at whenever they want.

After our first monitor died an My husband and I needed a reliable monitor for our son because he has had a few seizures at night. After our first monitor died and after carefully reading reviews, it looked like the iBaby was the best option out there for us, especially since we could see him everywhere and anywhere on our phones. Turns out we were completely wrong. The volume spontaneously changes on its own. Even at its highest setting, you can hardly hear anything. Every other time we would try to turn it on, there was a "network error." We'd have to turn on and off the camera and iPad several times to try and get them to sync. We even invested in a new router for better service, it didn't make a difference. We were finally so fed up when we kept getting the "network error" on our iPad and both iPhones. We spent over an hour trying to troubleshoot it and nothing worked. We also tried calling customer service and they are only available M-F 9am-5pm PST. This is an untrustworthy product.

    They need to go back to the drawing board with this one. I received mine on Friday. While my son was napping I set it up in the ki They need to go back to the drawing board with this one. I received mine on Friday. While my son was napping I set it up in the kitchen to test it out. Worked great! So easy to set up. After dinner I installed it in my son's room. This time I couldn't get it to work. Turns out they were having network issues, and I wasn't able to log back on until Saturday morning. Then it was unstable all weekend, so it kept cutting out. Monday it went down completely again. When it came back up it was still unstable. You're at their mercy since there is no option to locally stream the video. You must go through their network. Their response after I contacted them? "Network errors happen sometimes." Nice. Not even an attempt to assure me this is an unusual situation or that their network is usually more stable than what I'd seen in the short time I'd owned the product. In sum, the product is completely unreliable as a baby monitoring device, and even when it works it's not that great. The companion app is buggy, the video is decent, but the sound is horrendous. It goes up and down in volume on its own. The sound and motion alerts are way too sensitive. The user manual claims there is a setting to adjust the sensitivity, but that is wrong. Maybe they copied that tidbit over from the manual for the M3? The only option for those settings is on or off. Thank goodness Apple has a decent return policy!

    - pretty complicated to set up, having to plug the USB cord from your phone (instructions, were pretty useless)
    - connection to t - pretty complicated to set up, having to plug the USB cord from your phone (instructions, were pretty useless)
    - connection to the wifi (main floor) and camera (2nd floor) fails constantly.
    - LOUD obnoxious double beep, happens every re-install software
    - when it losses connection (because why else?) it (CAMERA) repeats said beeps! Waking up anyone sleeping in the vicinity (BABY!!)
    -to reconnect, most times you just have to log back in and close (repeat x3-4) the ibaby app.
    -there is no iBaby view in the AppStore. It's just iBaby.
    -the delay is crazy. I seriously can't trust it to tell me on time what's going on. When you push the talk back button, talk then turn it back to listen, you will hear what you've said a few seconds later. That to me is too long of a delay to be trusted. (I've also accidentally pushed the talk button on the phone, a lot)
    - you WILL have to re-install by plugging phone to camera
    - zooms horrible
    - sound crackles. It must have a sensor that amplifies the volume when there's sound. Or a fluff that landed near it and thought I was missing out.
    -sometimes it will max out the volume for no reason, then just quit altogether
    -it does alert you when there is no connection, but as it semi connects and glitches again, it starts over. So you might get the warning it's not working for 10 or so minutes. Or more. Seriously. I'm not making this up.
    - amazing idea with it having the magnetic base.
    - you can manually face it in any direction.
    - pretty descent night vision.
    - if the camera is in a good mod, it'll let you spy when you're not home.
    - being able to use the big screen of iPad as a video monitor, awesome. (If you want the scratching static fairies to whip you awake over a snore)
    - I don't get what the nighttime button is for.
    - I love being able to snap a pic on the app (not phone)
    -and having a milestones section in app

  • This monitor is useless. Worst thing I ever bought from Apple.

    I know Apple didn't make this product. I am reminded over and over. The connection errors, firmware upgrades that didn't download. I know Apple didn't make this product. I am reminded over and over. The connection errors, firmware upgrades that didn't download. Constant freezing, poor audio. This monitor just doesn't work. iBaby certainly takes no responsibility for producing such a worthless product. No support. I wasted $150 and ended up much more satisfied with a $3 monitor app from the AppStore. Heed all the poor reviews. Keep your baby safe. Don't bother with this.

The app you have to download is only configured for the M3. I've tried several times to get that working. A closer inspection of the M2's box revealed that it's only certified for iPhones and iPod touches, despite having a picture of an iPad on the box. It also says "watch your baby from anywhere." Now that would seem to mean you can watch the monitor through the web out of your home. Unfortunately the monitor/app system only works within your wifi network.

    All that being said, the monitor isn't horrible. But for $150 I really expected more. I would just buy a camera w/ microphone and speaker for less money. I really wish Apple would fix the misleading packaging for an item they sell in-store.
