    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.

    Like it!

    Is the best baby monitor i have used. Works at all times, have never failed so far.
    Use it on wifi network, and is very stable. The only thing missing is PC or Mac support...

    Best way to say "we love you" to our child

    • Written by from Normandy Park

    As a father of a 10 month old boy I want to transmit just one thought to the Withings Team:
    Using this gadget for almost a year now gave us the opportunity to make our little boy feel safe that someone is always near him when we wakes in the dark without needing to cry out loud for someone to hear his needs.

    This babyphone rocks. I am sure that problems listed by other people below are just lack of knowledge in having this gadget well configurated.
    The 2 - 5 seconds delay is something very normal for split video in a home networking. Industrial equipments are 100% live and costs also 100 times more.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    • 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.

    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.

    Does NOT have pan/tilt/zoom

    • Written by from Troy

    When they say pan/tilt/zoom, they mean when you zoom in on your phone/ipad, you can then move the image around to see the exact same thing you can see when you're not zoomed in. In other words, you can zoom into the IMAGE, but the image itself is always the same. The camera does NOT zoom, it does NOT pan, and it most certainly does NOT tilt.

    I can't believe they are even attempting to say the camera can tilt, since that has no meaning outside of physical movement, and the camera on this device does not physically move. It's false advertising and a purposeful attempt to deceive the consumer.

    Plus, the only thing that actually works correctly is the video coming through. The bluetooth connection required to change the settings goes down after a minute or two, and my temperature alert settings keep reseting to 147-165 degrees fahrenheit, so that alert will constantly go off if you have it on.

    Very poor. You can get the same thing for much much less with more established video monitoring brands (check Amazon for good ones), and they will still work with your iphone/ipad.

    Does what I want, love it

    • Written by from Burton

    I have had this unit since May and have waited these 5 months for review....Easy set up process. I do not, nor did I want this unit as something to stay on ALL the time on the app on my phone, I wanted to be able to check in on my pets while away from home to see if they are ok. I click into the app, see they are ok, can hear the surroundings and talk back to them if I want, night vision is very acceptable. then I close the app out. It stays connected just fine to my netgear router, Have not had trouble accessing it on my home network, another network, or through cellular service. I have very good broadband internet speed so I believe that helps. I think if you're broadband is slow that is where people are encountering problems with connections, just like if you try to watch streaming video on your tv and just don't have the proper speed. So I have been very pleased with this unit for what I need it for.

    Very Poor Product for the Price

    • Written by from Burnaby

    We have an apple base station for our wireless in a small apartment and the monitor will not stay connected. Constantly cuts in and out and sometimes does not reconnect. Even when connected via bluetooth to either of our iphones it will randomly disconnect.

    Very frustrating piece of equipment.

    Useless if usb connector fails

    • Written by from Buenos Aires

    WithBaby's magnet mount is weak and unsafe.
    Micro USB Power connector loosened from the motherboard.
    With Baby does NOT charge, therefore It can not be used!
    There is absolutely NO way to connect to the camera, as it must stayed connected to power at all times through it's rear micro usb.
    Terrible design left me with no camera at all!
    I had contacted Withings with no answer.
    I need an answer and a replacement asap.

    I've used other monitors and nothing compares. We had trouble setting it up in the beginning and had to wait a couple of weeks for a software update (our baby wasn't born yet so it was fine). Customer service was great and it has worked perfectly ever since.

    Terrible design - terrible network stability

    • Written by from Sarasota

    Don't even consider buying it - it is NOT baby safe

    1. Magnet mount is a gimmick and is not stable
    2. Power connector is Micro USB - and is not safely mounted. So if the camera falls (due to magnet problem) - chances are 1 in 4 that the camera will land on the USB power connector - and that will tear the connector of the motherboard - and then - no more Smart Monitor
    3. Withings "network" service that helps you connect to the baby monitor is often down for DAYS - and there is no manual way to "connect" to the camera

    This product is like all other Withings products a HALF FINISHED PROTOTYPE - with BETA software.

    So save yourself the pain - get another brand

    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.

    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
