About this app

Dormi includes all standard features of an audio hardware baby monitor, along with video streaming (using your phone’s camera) and some surprising extras.

Works at any distance. It can use any available route to connect parent and child units (WiFi, mobile data - Edge, 3G, 4G, HSPA+, LTE), and can work even when Internet is not available (WiFi Direct, HotSpot / AP). If connection with the child device is lost, the parent device will notify you.

Uses strong cryptography to keep you from unpleasant surprises that are all too common on regular IP based dedicated HW monitors.

Ultimate feature? You can connect MULTIPLE devices in parent mode to a single child device simultaneously.

There is no need to configure microphone sensitivity - Dormi adjusts to noise levels automatically. Leave the device several meters away from the sleeping baby and it will still be able to detect when it cries and amplify the sound for the parent device as if it were placed right next to the baby.

Press and hold the Listen button to hear sound from the child device even while the baby is not crying. Equally, use the Talk button to talk back to soothe or calm the baby while you are on your way.

Dormi will even notify you about missed calls and new text messages received on the child device, so you will not miss something important while not having direct access to the device.

If the baby starts crying while you are on the phone, you will be notified with vibrations and a gentle beep to your ear - without abruptly disturbing the phone call, yet letting you know.

Of course, Dormi works in the background, even when the device screen is off. Great care has been taken to limit battery usage - you can monitor for many hours on one charge.

Have you got an old Android device sitting in the drawer that you have no use for? Not anymore - try using it as the child device with Dormi. We have made the effort to ensure it runs from Android 2.3 onward.

Although unlimited monitoring is paid, you will get 4 hours of monitoring for free every month. If you do decide to make a purchase, you only have to do so on one of the devices participating in the monitoring.

Want to like it, good quality app with useful options, but it has terrible controls and I cannot work the video view on my phone! You have to hold and slide the eye tab to view video, but even if I drag it all the way over, it just snaps back to the side! Am I really supposed to hold the button down to view video? I can't leave the camera open to watch it as a monitor?? The app could truly be perfect if viewing were more user friendly. As it is now, the interface is unusable!

quite a good app for what it is supposed to do. mostly using it for travel. the fact that it uses mobile if wifi fails was my main reason to buy the unlimited monitoring. However there is one major issue that makes it less user friendly. 1) no option to select continuous audio/video - have to hold the button down which makes it clunky esp. when changing video options/camera. I connect my phone to charger so drain is not an issue. I would prefer if that option existed.

Stellar since day one. I tried a traditional video monitor when 2nd was born and struggled to like it, let alone get it to work consistently. This app is flexible, video optional, encrypted, travel-friendly, multiple users, allows simultaneous apps, no ads, easy to use. I think there was even an update that tuned out repeated sounds like my lullaby app. We use it every night and won't stop anytime soon. I do have one request: a widget for my home screen would put this app over the top!

What's new

One of Murphy's computer laws says: "Every non trivial program has at least one bug".
Well, Dormi is definitely not trivial... 100k lines of code promises a lot happening under the hood. In this release we have fixed 2 extremely rare bugs, and if it weren't for the law, we would be on the trajectory to reach bug-free very soon.

In addition, we squeezed the app into 100KB less - apk size is now back to under 5MB! Every byte counts on older devices where the app likely runs in child-mode.
