WiFi Baby Monitor updated on iPhone

Posted on Monday, April 4th, 2011 by James

We often receive messages from parents wishing to use a Y-cam camera as a baby monitor – it’s great nightvision, recording and Wi-Fi features make sure of that.  However parents often ask us for easy ways to monitor their kiddies without the need to boot up their computers.  Of course, our free MultiLive app helps the issue, but every so often parents want something a bit more baby-specific.

For iPhone owners, there are two solutions: BabyPing and Baby Monitor HD.

BabyPing is our very own designated BabyMonitor that is totally iOS compatible. It features customizable cry alerts, fantastic night vision, remote viewing and more. More information is available at BabyPing.com.

Baby Monitor HD is a fantastic app from Sunshine Apps that utilises all of the Y-cam features to make the ultimate baby monitoring app for iPhone.

UPDATE: BabyMonitor HD have released a further update to this announcement, to see what is available on version 4.1 please check out our new blog post.

Sunshine Apps have just announced the immediate availability of a new update to the app which allows parents  to watch and hear babies during day and night, even with the latest iOS update 4.3.

Baby Monitor HD features

- 4 simultaneous live video feeds
- Audio Support with sound activated alerts
- IR night vision activation
- 3x Digital Zoom capabilities
- Vibrate alerts

Baby Monitor HD can utilise both Wi-Fi and 3G signals on the iPhone, and with remote access possibilities, makes this perfect for parents both at home or on the move.

The current version supports all current Y-cam models and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, including iOS 4.3.

    Hi Lee, I am just trying to contact Sunshine apps regarding your query please bear with me and I’ll let you know asap. Thanks a lot

    Update: Hi Lee, I have heard back from the developers and unfortunately they do not have plans for an Android version, however as they are receiving a lot of requests they might consider it in the in future.

    I just bought and installed the software. Yay! finally sound form my Ycam Knight!
    The settings work just fine, transfer from local network to 3G works fine.

    In combination with Dyndns this is almost perfect.
    Why almost? 3 zoom functions are advertised, i could only find and select 2.
    1. standard “portrait” small screen.
    2. pinch and zoom switches to larger “landscape”

    zooming in on the actual image like in the ycam provided MultiLive app for windows is not (yet??) supported.

    All in all? a good investment of about 8 euros to have more fun and mobile functionality from your Ycam!

    Regards. Henk

    Hi Henk, this is great news! We are thrilled that you are pleased with the app, regarding the two zoom functions I have contacted Sunshine apps, as soon as I know I will pass the details on to you. Thanks again for your feedback.

    Hi Lee, I have just heard back from Sunshine Apps they say that the 3rd zoom option is shown when you have more than 1 camera configured, ie it’s the small view for showing 4 cameras at once. I hope that this helps and you continue to enjoy the app.

    I have reached out to Tech support 4 times without a response.

    Hello, I have heard back from our support and to combat this issue can you please download our MultiLive for Mac V1, as our V2 does not support 10.5. You can down load V1 by following the link below.

    I hope this now combats your previous problems.

    Beware! This update with AAC does not work with the WiFi baby HD app or the Baby Monitor app.  So Mac users are still stuck with either using AMR with no sound on the mac or AAC with squelching sound on the iphone.

  • Clefler

    We purchased the baby monitor this past summer. We have continuing problems with the camera cutting in and out. We have undated our wireless system and we are still dealing with the same issues. We are now wondering if the camera is the problem.

    Hello Clefler, I am really sorry to hear this. Can I ask whether you have a camera from WiFi baby, or did you purchase from us? And to try and resolve the problems you are experiencing can I ask you to be so kind as to contact out technical support http://support.y-cam.com/. Thank you kindly.

    Is the Y-Cam Black S IR camera safe to use
    As a baby monitor?

    I have mounted it on the cot so we can get a clear
    View of her face, I am however worried that
    The IR beams could harm her eyes.

    Should I be worried?

  • Jack

    Can I connect the Y-Cam directly with my smart phone(wifi enabled)? I mean point-to-point connection (no router)

    You sound just like someone who does use a Mac. Feel free to try jumping off the bandwagon…
