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

Best baby monitor we've ever had
Rating- Only giving 4 out of 5 because this is pricey especially considering you have to also have an iPhone/ iPad in addition to Rating- Only giving 4 out of 5 because this is pricey especially considering you have to also have an iPhone/ iPad in addition to monitor. We've had three kids and our share of monitors...
A/V- Great video and audio quality. App is very intuitive and has some nice features. Clear a lot of thought was put into it. At night, you can't see that well... but this is not advertised to be night vision goggles. WIth a little backlight provided by something else, you can still see something. Also, the audio is really good.
Setup- Fast and easy. Had it working in 10 minutes.
Wifi- The biggest plus is the wifi- "unlimited distance" and no hissing at extended distances.
iPhone App- well built and thought out. They could have built a great piece of HW and skimped on the UI, but that's not the case. It exceeded my expectations.
Other- have not tried it at friends houses, but since you ideally set it up over the wifi (bluetooth backup), it's not as flexible at the traditional monitor. Since we plan to use this 99% of the time at home, this is not a significant use case for us.
Finally, we took an old iPhone and use it for monitoring. We like to leave it on for long time periods, so using or iPhone is not always ideal. However, it's super great to switch from the extra iPhone to my or my wife's iPhone. Also, both of us can monitor.
Bottom line- if you want an easy to use, top notch baby monitor and will be monitoring from more than 1 room away, this is the way to go. …

Much better than expected and other brands I tested
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 fi 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. …

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. …

Does this allow me to see my child while I am deployed overseas with an internet connection or TDY in a different state?

I've successfully checked in on my baby in California while on a business trip in Florida. As long I've successfully checked in on my baby in California while on a business trip in Florida. As long as your device has relatively open access to the public internet (and the baby monitor does, too) you should be okay. This worked on hotel WiFi as well as 3G.
It doesn't make for a good videoconferencing solution as there is a lag of a couple seconds between the app recording your voice and when you hear it come out of the baby monitor. But you can say a few things, maybe even sing a song or read a story - as long as it's not too interactive.
This lag is present even when you're on the same network, by the way. …
