• 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Mixed positives and negatives

    • Written by from Plymouth

    We have used this monitor for 2 months, having used an Angel and Motorola monitor previously. The initial set up was very easy. The picture is clear and it does work very well from anywhere in the world if you have 3G or wifi- excellent.
    However.....We have had big problems with maintaining connectivity. In the home there is wifi connectivity throughout the house but the signal cuts every 5-10 minutes. The wifi works for everything else(including streaming movies or itv player). .
    It is such a frustration considering we spent such a huge amount of money on the apple product, expecting a reliable product. It is hugely unreliable.
    I would recommend this product if you have a smallish home so the Bluetooth can work, or use the a cellular network for back up. If you are replying on wifi entirely you may be disappointed.

    Almost There...

    I hope Withings reads this:

    Three stars because they are ALMOST THERE:

    (1) Need PC/OSX support. And I read Android support is terrible.
    (2) Reinforce the flimsy mini-USB connector on camera.
    (3) Crib mount needs to tilt and be wall mountable.
    (4) Access Administration (set up accounts, restrict access based on user/date/time, view who is monitoring, viewer history, reset password).
    (5) Enhance ability to reconnect if Camera or App loses connectivity.
    (6) Upload at least one of my own songs, give me a bigger list to select from, or sell me songs to stream (to address DRM issues).

    By the way, I read lots of complaints about the broken temperature threshold. Try using Celsius scale since Withings is European.
