Okay but in the end we purchased a baby monitor I thought this would be an alternative to purchasing a baby monitor but i just could not get it to work like I wanted to. I had a old galaxy s which I was hoping could serve as baby unit. I was hoping my Nexus 4 and HTC Amaze could serve as the parent unit. The sound was faint, video was okay, and connection sometimes timed out.
Amazing app! Ideal for when you're away from home and don't have your purpose-built monitor with you. Great features on the web browser and good controls on the receiver app (separate purchase, but still good value for the two apps). Works over wifi so much better than the apps that rely on text message or call alerts. Really simple to use. Recommended to any parent of young children.
Still some work to be done [My review concerns both Android applications - Monitor and Receiver] [1. No demo version for Receiver, so there is no way to test functionality on 2 Android devices.] [2. Receiver has an option to work in background while using your Android, but it stopes after a few minutes! I was really pleased with that function, but it's useless. You have to go back to the Receiver application to restore monitoring :(] [3. Receiver misses Monitor's battery status information. Monitor's device missed calls and new messages would also be nice.] [4. No walkie-talkie option to speak from Receiver to Monitor. One-way communcation only.] [5. Motion detection should be used to alarm Monitor (vibrations, sounds, turning device, etc). I don't see any use of that option for right now.] [6. Annoing Monitor information everytime transmission starts, with instructions how to receive picture on "Web Browser" or "Android Device". Should be an option to disable this message.] [Paid for both applications, but I still wait for improvements. Picture and sound quality as well as applications design is very nice, so I see the potential to be the best of that kind in Google Play. Sa far there is no leader.]
Nice app. Needs night vision. Nice app. Serves well. Would be nice of it automatically adjusted brightness and contrast for darkened rooms. Even at 4 lux (which is fairly bright for nap time) the video feed is practically black.
Excellent Excellent app. Saved me buying a baby monitor. Would have given five stars if a night mode camera option was available and also if the receiver was linked as opposed to buying separately.
Browser video is VERY disappointing! It's a mere postage stamp size and I can't find a way to make it bigger. I want full screen on my Ubuntu laptop and that's the reason I bought this. Fooled around trying to find a way to resize to long to get a refund.
