Review from Christina Harmon
The device is easy and simple to use. You have to create an account instead of just being able to pair two devices. The app is also constantly "losing connection," yet I can still see my baby and hear him. Though occasionally I will have to completely reset the entire system in order for it to sync back up. I am using an S8 and an iPad Mini.
This is an incredible app and very user friendly. Setup takes all but 2 minutes and provides video stream, audio, and a method to use two way audio. Best part is the app stays running in the background so you can continue using your device while still monitoring the audio. Can't forget to mention the price, FREE!!! Feature request: It would be great if you could also enable/disable the light on the phone or if some kind of night vision filter was available. We set it up last night and it was the first time in 3 weeks Mom and Dad were able to get a full 6 hours of sleep. Thank you Dev!!!!
App is pretty and UI is simple. App doesn't work well when wifi connection is low. If I have both phones in my bedroom and say "testing" into baby phone, I hear "testing" on parent phone maybe 10% of the time. If I'm not mistaken, other baby monitoring apps handle bad wifi better. Note: I'm able to watch Amazon video in the room, so Wifi isn't that bad. I think BabyCam just needs to handle brief pauses in Wifi connection better (eg Wifi stops for a second or two). Another problem is that if I put the baby phone to sleep, the parent phone loses connection. (I think this doesn't always happen?)
Works.. Sort of.. + Stupidly easy to set up. - Randomly loses connection. - Camera issues. Goes black when changing camera. - No flash led control. Dark room, makes it impossible to see anything. Still have no f*****g idea what the bell icon with the Zzz does when I click it.. Well the icon change color to cyan... That's it?
Nice simple UI, setup process is simple and we'll though out, but there no flash light so i can't see my daughter in a dim lit room, The cry detection flat out doesn't work on my note 3, and the connection drops constantly. So right now, a waist of money.
After 15 seconds of streaming,connection was lost.uninstall.thank you,goodbye Connection is via Wi-Fi,speed around 2-3 Mbps.i have also reset the parent device,the same error appeared.I was looking for an more reliable alternative to an existing app called Dormi,if you are aware of this app.
