Lo único que no he conseguido es poder configurarlo sin wifi para pudre ver a mi bebe cuando estoy fuera de casa. Lo he intentado muchas veces pero no lo consigo así que de momento solo lo puedo usar en casa con el wifi de casa.
La cámara fue muy fácil de instalar, simplemente siguiendo las instrucciones que iban apareciendo en la pantalla. Al principio de usarla se nos iba desconfigurando unas cuantas veces, cuando estábamos varios días sin emplearla. Ahora que la empleamos cada noche cuando el bebé está en su cuna y nosotros nos quedamos cenando, no se ha vuelto a desconfigurar.
Lo único es que cuando la tienes en marcha, al dispositivo (ipad o iphone) al que está conectado se le consume la batería a un ritmo vertiginoso. No es que te quedes sin batería en seguida, pero conviene conectarlo al cargardor cuando lo estés empleando, así es más práctico.

Beyond the quick setup guide included with the iBaby app, though, the documentation was comically bad. The device came packaged with a CD containing a PDF users guide, which appears to have been translated from Chinese either by a human who's never spoken to a native English speaker or by a computerized translation program. This quality of manual would be embarrassing for a $20 clock/radio bought at CVS. For an almost $200 device aimed at new parents and sold in the Apple Store, it's absolutely appalling. Honestly, how hard can it really be, even for a company based in China, to find a high school or college student who is a fluent speaker of both English and Mandarin to translate the frickin manual? It would probably cost about $1000!
The quality of the image itself was more than adequate - even surprisingly good with the night vision. Audio was acceptable - not as good as the Angelcare audio monitor we have, but acceptable. The iBaby app is somewhat basic, but intuitive and works fine (although I haven't tried to add a second camera yet); allows easy panning and tilting with a finger swipe as well as capturing a snapshot to your iPhone or iPad. I'm less impressed by the audio and movement alerts - not so much because they don't work as because it plays poorly in the sandbox with the iOs device's desire to be locked and asleep - I suspect it would work fine if you plugged it in and left the screen on without using the device for anything else, but who really wants to do that? The app claims you can leave it on and it will continue to function with the screen asleep; the time I tried that it resulted in waking up in the morning to a screen full of multiple text alerts (the audible alert seems not to have sounded, and given how loud it is I'm pretty sure I would've woken up) followed ultimately by a warning that the connection to the camera had been lost.
Which leads me to my bottom line about the device, and probably the source of a lot of dissatisfaction. The iBaby, and probably iOs-based baby video monitors in general, are not quite ready for prime time if you want to depend on it as your *only* method of monitoring the baby, particularly if you have medical concerns or anything. We use it in conjunction with our Angelcare audio monitor, which has always worked perfectly without problems; basically, we use the iBaby video to *check on* the baby, not so much to *monitor* the baby. (I.e., once we've heard her cry or whatever, to answer the question of "What in the world is she *doing* in there?" without having to go in the room.) This is not the iBaby's fault so much as it is the fault of WiFi in general - I don't know how it is for other people, but our WiFi is a little unstable - it's not terribly uncommon for it to drop signal or kick a laptop or our BluRay player off the network. For most devices, this simply results in a freeze for a few seconds while the device signs back on to WiFi; for the iBaby, you pretty much have to do it manually by closing the app and opening it again. This is slightly frustrating but no big deal if you're using it like we are, but you can see how people would hate it if the iBaby were their only monitor.
I can compare the device to the Summer Infant BabyTouch, which reviews very well; we inadvertantly purchased both at the same time. The iBaby has slightly better video quality and slightly worse audio quality than the Summer Infant, although both were adequate. (It's not HD, but for a little webcam with night vision, what do you want?) The Summer Infant has a (digital) zoom that's not very useful, whereas the iBaby does not. Controlling the camera is much better with the iBaby. The Summer Infant has a built in speaker that you can use to talk back through it; somewhat deceptively, the iBaby doesn't (what it has is a *connection* for an external speaker that you have to buy separately), but we don't really feel like that's all that important. The iBaby has the above problems with unstable WiFi connections, whereas the Summer Infant worked perfectly out of the box, never losing connection even for a moment. They're similarly priced; some reviwers have described the iBaby as grossly overpriced, which it probably is if you have the networking skills to buy a Foscam for about $100, an iOs based app for $5-10 to drive it, and set it up on your wireless network. I don't, and I have better uses for the several hours (and probably having to purchase a book on wireless networking) that it would take me to figure it out; I'd rather just pay the extra money.
So why did we keep the iBaby and send the Summer Infant back? Because the Summer Infant reliably - although not instantaneously, which is interesting - fried our WiFi network and made all sorts of devices, from networked printers to our BluRay player, to my wife's laptop, completely useless because of poor connection. Now, it's been suggested that this problem can be solved by changing the channel on your router (we use a Cisco Linksys E3000), but again, I really don't want to be spending my time playing sysadmin for my wireless network when it's clearly the fault of a specific device with a noisy signal. We'll keep our reliable Angelcare sudio monitor for workhorse use and our iBaby for visual checking in, thanks.
Pros: *Easy to set up. My husband and I both use it on our Ipod Touch 5 and it was a breeze to set up. You do have to plug it into your router the first time to activate it, but after that it's wireless.
*Clear good picture, even at night. The color is a little wonky, but we are mainly using it to see if the baby's really awake or just stirring around, not for award winning photos. The night vision is really clear and can easily see if baby's eyes are open, etc.
*Easy to maneuver around. With just a swipe of the finger you can move the camera around the room to see all corners.
*Easy to mount. Screws and anchors included, & literally took 5 minutes to mount.
*App is fairly easy to use. The software is simple to use, though it's pretty bare-bones.
Cons: *The 2-way audio only works if you add on speakers, not included.
*The cord is pretty short for a camera that needs mounted. Due to the tilt restrictions, there was no way to see into the baby's crib without mounting the camera and an extension cord was necessary. The camera plug is one of those big bulky ones, so we had to find something to rest it on halfway up the wall - kind of a hazard for something that's supposed to be installed in a baby room.
*The alerts don't work when my ios device goes to sleep. This is a BIG con...BIG. Ios devices want to go to sleep to save battery, but for whatever reason the alerts don't go off when my Ipod goes into sleep / lock mode, but if you leave your screen on all the time, it drains the battery, so you have to keep it plugged in, which means you can't carry it around with you....not good. Also, if you can't lock the screen the chances of your older toddler getting their hands on your Ipod and deleting some stuff is pretty high...also not good.
*The FAQ from IBaby doesn't address the above issue, so I've contacted customer service to see if there is a work-around, but haven't heard back yet...
*2 people can't really be in the app at the same time. If 2 people have the app open and one changes the alert settings, it applies to everyone in the app. So if my husband is at work and tunes in to have a look at the little one, and I have the alerts on, he's constantly getting the alerts as well...If he turns off the alerts, it turns them off on my device as well. Kind of inconvenient. It would be better if each user could set the alerts to their preference, rather than them being applied across the board.
Summary: Love that it's easy to install and great picture. Love having video access to my little one's room. Hate that the alerts don't work properly.
UPDATE: I finally heard back from the company that makes the M3 with some suggestions on settings in my IOS device to make the alerts work. Unfortunately their suggestions did not resolve the issue and then the alerts stopped working all together, even when the device was not sleeping. I tried twice more to contact them with no response. I contacted Amazon to see what my options were and they, thankfully, allowed me to return the monitor. Based on the IBaby Labs customer service and the above listed cons to this monitor I would not recommend it if you intend to use it as a baby monitor.
This has been a great purchase. If you are not super techie, ask a friend who is to help with the set up, you'll be glad you did.
I tried to send a screen shot, but it wasn't video so didn't work.
