    This monitor is useless. Worst thing I ever bought from Apple.

    • Written by from portland

    I know Apple didn't make this product. I am reminded over and over. The connection errors, firmware upgrades that didn't download. Constant freezing, poor audio. This monitor just doesn't work. iBaby certainly takes no responsibility for producing such a worthless product. No support. I wasted $150 and ended up much more satisfied with a $3 monitor app from the AppStore. Heed all the poor reviews. Keep your baby safe. Don't bother with this.

    Junk

    • Written by from Tisdale

    Ditto, same as the lady from drumheller. Hard to setup, temperamental, motion alerts all day while I'm at work, but unable to view anything and I have both 3G and wifi. Not sure why it works at home but not away. I really didn't buy the camera to use across the hall from baby's room. I bought it as I work away and don't have the luxury to be home every night. Spend your money on something else. Ignore the good reviews from ibaby "friends"

    An expensive paperweight

    • Written by from Circleville

    I'm on my second device after exchanging the one I initially purchased with the company. I've continued to have the same errors with the second device and I'm unable to get the camera to pair with either my iPhone or iPad. I have been in contact with the tech support and they have not been able to solve the problem. I came hear to check the reviews on the product. I read the positive comments and found it interesting that they all come from San Fransico and San Jose. The company selling the product is located in Mountain View which is between these two cities. I wonder if the positive comments are coming from the distributer of the product? I spent $150 to get my wife an expensive paperweight for her Christmas present.

    So inconsistent!

    • Written by from ANCHORAGE

    I would never buy this again! I have been using it for a month and a half and I would say it only works 50% of the time and thats even being generous. Constantly has "network" issues. Ill check it when baby isnt there and it works and lately it seems when I do need it it wont connect. Why even have amonitor?! There are no issues with my router or wifi in my home so I assume its the product.

    Do not buy this product

    • Written by from The Pas

    Terrible product. Out of the box, it seemed to work ok. Had some delay on the audio and video. Shortly after, things started to deteriorate. It started with constant movement and sound alerts every 20 seconds when there was no movement or sound present in the room with the baby. Then it became an issue with the audio. It got very staticky one day. And now the monitor will not connect to wifi despite every effort for the last 2 hours. All of these problems still persist. None of them were ever resolved. Do not buy this product.

    Untrustworthy

    • Written by from drumheller

    - pretty complicated to set up, having to plug the USB cord from your phone (instructions, were pretty useless)
    - connection to the wifi (main floor) and camera (2nd floor) fails constantly.
    - LOUD obnoxious double beep, happens every re-install software
    - when it losses connection (because why else?) it (CAMERA) repeats said beeps! Waking up anyone sleeping in the vicinity (BABY!!)
    -to reconnect, most times you just have to log back in and close (repeat x3-4) the ibaby app.
    -there is no iBaby view in the AppStore. It's just iBaby.
    -the delay is crazy. I seriously can't trust it to tell me on time what's going on. When you push the talk back button, talk then turn it back to listen, you will hear what you've said a few seconds later. That to me is too long of a delay to be trusted. (I've also accidentally pushed the talk button on the phone, a lot)
    - you WILL have to re-install by plugging phone to camera
    - zooms horrible
    - sound crackles. It must have a sensor that amplifies the volume when there's sound. Or a fluff that landed near it and thought I was missing out.
    -sometimes it will max out the volume for no reason, then just quit altogether
    -it does alert you when there is no connection, but as it semi connects and glitches again, it starts over. So you might get the warning it's not working for 10 or so minutes. Or more. Seriously. I'm not making this up.
    - amazing idea with it having the magnetic base.
    - you can manually face it in any direction.
    - pretty descent night vision.
    - if the camera is in a good mod, it'll let you spy when you're not home.
    - being able to use the big screen of iPad as a video monitor, awesome. (If you want the scratching static fairies to whip you awake over a snore)
    - I don't get what the nighttime button is for.
    - I love being able to snap a pic on the app (not phone)
    -and having a milestones section in app

    Not Ready of Prime Time

    • Written by from Groton

    They need to go back to the drawing board with this one. I received mine on Friday. While my son was napping I set it up in the kitchen to test it out. Worked great! So easy to set up. After dinner I installed it in my son's room. This time I couldn't get it to work. Turns out they were having network issues, and I wasn't able to log back on until Saturday morning. Then it was unstable all weekend, so it kept cutting out. Monday it went down completely again. When it came back up it was still unstable. You're at their mercy since there is no option to locally stream the video. You must go through their network. Their response after I contacted them? "Network errors happen sometimes." Nice. Not even an attempt to assure me this is an unusual situation or that their network is usually more stable than what I'd seen in the short time I'd owned the product. In sum, the product is completely unreliable as a baby monitoring device, and even when it works it's not that great. The companion app is buggy, the video is decent, but the sound is horrendous. It goes up and down in volume on its own. The sound and motion alerts are way too sensitive. The user manual claims there is a setting to adjust the sensitivity, but that is wrong. Maybe they copied that tidbit over from the manual for the M3? The only option for those settings is on or off. Thank goodness Apple has a decent return policy!

    Waste of Money

    • Written by from Waltham

    My husband and I needed a reliable monitor for our son because he has had a few seizures at night. After our first monitor died and after carefully reading reviews, it looked like the iBaby was the best option out there for us, especially since we could see him everywhere and anywhere on our phones. Turns out we were completely wrong. The volume spontaneously changes on its own. Even at its highest setting, you can hardly hear anything. Every other time we would try to turn it on, there was a "network error." We'd have to turn on and off the camera and iPad several times to try and get them to sync. We even invested in a new router for better service, it didn't make a difference. We were finally so fed up when we kept getting the "network error" on our iPad and both iPhones. We spent over an hour trying to troubleshoot it and nothing worked. We also tried calling customer service and they are only available M-F 9am-5pm PST. This is an untrustworthy product.

    Poor product, not worth $150..

    • Written by from Plymouth

    The quality of the camera is extremely poor and is nothing close to what is displayed on the box. There's about a 5 second delay on the camera and the movements are very choppy. The audio quality is poor and when I was using it there were network problems constantly, making it hard to stay connected. If this product wa $30 it might be worth it; otherwise i'd recommend looking elsewhere for a baby monitor.
