    Always, there is a problem to connect with WIFI!

    • Written by from East Pearson

    The reason why I bought Whithings baby monitore are that I liked the features, design, color and the product.
    Since 2013 when i bought Whithings, I had a chance to used only 5 tines! The reason that Im not using it, is not that I don't wont to use it, but I can't use it because I always have problem to connected it with wifi.
    And the wifi is the reason why i bought this product!

    So before you spend 250.00$, to get a camera compatible with wifi, think twice before you choose this product.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Can't be trusted...

    • Written by from PAWLEYS ISLAND

    Used for 2 weeks before my daughter was born, thought is was great. It disconnected from time to time but felt it was going to work out. My wife and I kept our daughter in our room for about a month before moving her into her nursery and finally getting to use the monitor. First night it disconnected after we fell asleep. The nursery is across the house and neither of us woke up for a couple hours before we realized our baby was crying and the monitor had disconnected so we were not alarmed... We felt terrible and found it impossible to fall asleep with this monitor. Point of my review is this... I wanted it to work SOOO bad but, it disconnects randomly and cant be trusted when you're trying to sleep. Returned for full refund. Apple was great to deal with on the return, very happy with their customer service.

    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.

    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.

    Tried so hard to like it- went through 3 of them

    • Written by from Santa Barbara

    I really wanted to like this monitor- when I heard about it I waited on the waiting list for 3 months until it got approved in the US. Got the first one direct from Withings, and shortly after setting it up the power cord broke. Contacted customer service who said that parts are not available, so I'd have to get a new one. Sent that one back for a replacement
    Got the replacement very quickly, and set it up. Was great for 2 days, with the exception of the normal delay that WiFi monitors have- about 5 seconds. After 2 days, none of my iPhones or iPads could connect without rebooting the monitor and the the app. Contacted Withings, and sent it back.
    At that point, I was so disappointed because the idea of only having to carry around my phone as the monitor was so great. I figured I'd give it one more shot and got the third one from Apple. Just packaged that one up for return. Once again, worked great for 2 days except for expected delay in signal, but then, once again, despite green lights saying the monitor was connected and great WiFi signals, my iPhones and iPads again could not connect without manually rebooting everything. Once the monitor was unplugged and plugged in again, the app could acquire it, though it took some time to get a good signal, and then had a lot of drop-outs before I could not take anymore. The simplest thing that I can say is that it is not very "Apple". It just doesn't work.
