    best baby monitor by FAR

    • Written by from New York

    awesome product. no range problems because it works over wifi, you can monitor out of house remotely over cellular, app runs in background and you can adjust lights, lullabies remotely as well ask speak back. i own three of these and would recommend highly to anyone.

    Disappointing!

    • Written by from Malden

    I had been using this monitor for about 6 months with only minor problems of connection issues. Withings then issued a couple of updates to the software which made the monitor unusable. None of the settings for motion, temperature or sound would remain set after leaving the app, so basically it was useless. I contacted Withings numerous times about these issues over the last two months with no action on their part. I requested a refund which they did promptly reply to with a negative response and no explanation. When a piece of equipment relies solely on the accompanying software the updates should be tested thoroughly and if and when they render the equipment unusable a new and functional software update should be made in a timely manner not over two months and still waiting. I would stay far away from this company and this product, Withings has prioritized other things and this monitor and software is not one of them.

    This has been the most frustrating product I have ever bought from Apple. Even returning was a hassle.

    Great product AWESOME Customer service

    • Written by from Yorba linda

    the Smart Baby Monitor by Withings is wonderful. I love the ability to turn the night light and music on remotely and the over quality of the video is great. I have not used it internationally, but I have checked up on my kids from our local Rubio's and they get a real kick out of being able to hear me. The Withings Customer Service is by far OUTSTANDING! I have never written a product review before, but was inspired to do so because of how incredibly helpful they have been. I recommend this product and this company to anyone.

    Excellent baby monitor

    Ignore the negative reviews.
    Withings is a great company and this is an amazing baby monitor with an equally good iPhone App. I have been using it for two weeks and can't be happier

    Taking it back

    • Written by from Fort Myers

    We, too, really wanted this baby monitor to work. Night vision is very hazy making it nearly impossible to see the child in the crib. The audio also had a lot of static. We hope the manufacturer will improve these deficits. When they do, we'll tthis product again.

    Pleased with product, Withings is terrible company if you need to return.

    • Written by from Zanesville

    Got this product for a baby shower gift. After a couple of months, the mini usb connection that goes from the monitor to the wall wore out. I had to contact Withings many times with no answer. The re-seller contacted them and had trouble getting an answer also. Finally, after 4 months, I got a replacement and so far, so good.

    Much better than expected and other brands I tested

    • Written by from Mahwah

    Ever since I found my wife was pregnant, I started to look for a baby monitor I could also use with my iOS device and one of my first choices was the Withings Smart Baby Monitor.

    All the bad reviews made me look else where and I started to test other brands, Motorola, Summer Infant, Dropcam, etc.

    I quickly eliminated all brands and my only choice left was the Dropcam Pro which is great, but it doesn't have the temperature and humidity sensors, or the comfort lights or the ability to play music.

    Finally, when all other options disappointed me, I dared to test the Withings Smart Baby Monitor and ordered one through Amazon. As soon as it arrived, I opened it, set it in minuted and loved it from the moment it powered on. No other baby monitored provided the video and sound quality this one did.

    What would I change and why the 4 stars? the mounting option is very limited, but so are all the others. Also, the micro-usb power connection is prompt to fail if you are not careful, it happens on many devices with these power connection.

    Do not read all other feedback, try it for yourself and create your own opinion, I (knocking on wood) haven't experienced all the issues everyone complain about, then again, I work in IT and I know how technology works.

    fell on kids head

    • Written by from Calgary

    very weak magnet is used to connect camera with the mount. our 3 month old kicked the bar of the crib and it fell onto his head! and broke! no battery, so it must stay connected to the power at all times. doesn't have a pan tilt capability (that is a must in a baby monitor)
    bottom line: lots of features but poor design

    Best Baby Monitor

    • Written by from Woodbury

    Best Baby Monitor:
    Love the function being able to check on the baby while at work or on business trip.
    Love capability to check on temperature and humidity at all times to ensure baby is not hot or cold.
    Awesome performance for IR camera.
    Would definitely get it again.

    The connection drops and does not connect again.Stay away from this product

    • Written by from Santana de Parnaíba

    The connection to the device is lost frequently. So far so good, but the problem is that there comes a time and it does not reconnect. I can not understand how a product designed to monitor your baby may have a fault that so great? I am software developer and I understand that it would be simple to solve what leads me to believe that the company is unreliable.

    Disappointed :-(

    • Written by from San isidro

    We loved this bb monitor until the problems starts to show Up very shortly... The Connectivity was random, Is not safe: two times the device fell into the crib, fortunately with nothing to regret, finally the USB conector broke up without ever having beaten or mistreated and now is useless...Is not a reliable product to be sold by apple.

    Returning due to poor night vision

    • Written by from Winterville

    Otherwise this was a pretty cool monitor - great signal all over my house, yard, and at work. My wife even checked in from Target. It worked well with an ipad and 2 iphones all viewing simultaneously. The only other drawback was the 4-5s delay. I would be willing to try again after these things are fixed. I would have given it a 4 or 5 if not for these 2 flaws.

    Never stays connected more than 24 hours

    • Written by from Arcadia

    Monitor is great when it is connected! But that's rare. I love that I know the temp in baby's room, etc, but it randomly loses connection and I have to go into the room to turn off & back on, sometimes 10 times before it reconnects. I got this for free, from a friend, now I know why!

    Great Product, beautiful design, so many features

    • Written by from Livingston

    This is a great product. Granted it's not the cheapest baby monitor but you'll struggle to find a cheaper one that does as much. On top of that it's beautifully designed including the monitor, app, included accessories and even the packaging.

    It does everything it claims to do and does them very well.

    Micro USB connector (power cord) stripped from circuit board

    • Written by from Leavenworth

    1. Micro USB connector (power cord) stripped from circuit board after 9 months preventing me from powering it on at all...
    2. Mounted by a magnet that can easily be knocked off
    3. Wireless signal often resets leaving you with no video feed during the down period.

    Neat concept but I can't recommend this product.

    Almost There...

    • Written by from Laguna Hills

    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.

    Better than the others

    • Written by from Alpharetta

    I'm only on day 3 of this monitor, but it's working so already it's better than the other ones I've tried.

    There's about a 2-second delay. (Just like similar monitors.)

    This was the first monitor we looked into, but it had a $13 price tag on the app (that we'd both need) so I refused to buy it on principle. (Now it's free)

    We bought the Baby Ping (which we couldn't get to connect to our internet) and the Phillips (which we hooked up, but once we moved it, couldn't get it to re-find the crib).

    I'm sure this monitor will have some negatives as I use it more, but it was easy to install, so far has been reliable, is easily relocated (I like to monitor the dogs when we're out), can go wireless, clips to crib without having to be screwed into the wall (ping) or propped on something (phillips).

    Bottom line is I think this is a 3-star product, but gets 4 based on it's place in the current market of this type. I'd think that someone would have come up with a better one already, but when I watch the news, there is a delay so I guess I can't expect much more.

    BTW I saw one review complaining that you shouldn't have to have an iPhone to use this monitor. I'm not sure why you would buy this if you don't have an iPhone, but I'm only comparing it to monitors that are for iPhone use and are viewable from anywhere. I'm not interested in just seeing the baby when I'm home, I want it for pet monitoring when I'm out.

    Best baby monitor, if you can afford it.

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    My wife and I went through three different baby monitosr for our 4 months old daughter. The first one was made by Motorola wireless baby monitor (forgot the model), was ok for sound monitor and the picture was below average. After a couple of weeks we sent it back to Amazon. The Summer infant baby touch digital video monitor was next. It has the best reviews on Amazon and the internet. The camera was great. You get true PTZ. However, the potable resolution is again....average. Terrible resolution and the screen keep going off after a couple of minutes. It does this to save the battery power, which of course is poor. The battery life, if you keep pressing the monitor button the keep the monitor from going to sleep is only a couple of hours at best. We decided to try the Withings smart bay monitor. So far so good. Love the lullabys and the night light that we can control remotely. Better than average screen resolution and if you have iPhone 5 and above or any of the iPad with retina display it video will look much better. Battery life, well it's idevice so keep it charge. Not a true PTZ. Just like any idevice, pinch finger to zoom out, apart to zoom in and move the picture to move it side to side. It come with feature like alert that we can set for differents parameter. Connection is awesome, we can see our daughter just about any where. I keep an eye on her from work when my mother in law put her in her crib. Connection with WiFi, LTE, 3G, or Bluetooth. The unit is portable so when we take the Withings smart baby monitor to my parents in laws house we can set the monitor and use Bluetooth as the connection. We love this baby monitor. Con, the rechargeable internal battery is weak. When it's unplugged only last about an hour. So keep the monitor plug in.
