I have been using this app with an old iPhone mounted in the nursery, and this is our only baby monitor. With this app, I’m able to watch the babies from anywhere in the world on any iOS device or my Mac. The app works really well and the quality is great. Overall, this app has been incredible and has saved me $200+ from buying a dropcam or a dedicated baby monitor.
Works amazing!! Love love love this app!! Will literally save you $100+ on an actual baby monitor. Highly recommend this app.
Cannot recommend this app enough. It has bee rock solid for us, and it's easily worth several times more than the purchase price. I just wish it had infra red night vision, but that's a limitation of the phone, not the app.
Genuinely cannot recommend this app enough, it's just fantastic. The range is second to none - especially comparatively to my physical Motorola Baby Monitor! I use my iPad as the child unit and iPhone 6+ for the parent and it's been faultless! Love the ability to turn on the front camera light to check on bubby without the need to mount the stairs, the lullabys and nightlight moon/star display features are brilliant too! I haven't found another similar product that's even remotely in the same league! Now with unlimited range it truly is just brilliant!!!
We returned the baby monitors we bought for our baby because we had no use for them with this app. We keep an old iPhone set up as the baby unit. Works great and saves money. Plus with family sharing you're able to purchase the app only once and download it to multiple devices.
The application works very well. If for any reasons, it presents any malfunctioning, you will find the best costumer service ever! ...and problem solved!
Cloud Baby Monitor is an app that turns your Apple devices into a reliable and easy to use video baby monitor. One device (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or a Mac) - the child unit - is left with your baby to capture the video and audio. The other device (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or Apple Watch) - the parent unit - is kept with the parents to either watch live video and audio, or get notified when child unit detects noise or motion. Both devices connect by default over your home WiFi network, or Bluetooth. Optionally you can enable Cloud Baby Monitor Unlimited Range to let the devices connect over 3G, LTE, or any other WiFi network outside of your house.
Cloud Baby Monitor works on all iOS devices running iOS 5 and newer. This includes iPod touch 3rd generation and newer, iPhone 3GS and newer, and all iPad models. Cloud Baby Monitor for Apple Watch requires iPhone 5 and newer running iOS 8.2 or newer.
As of September 2015, Apple stopped supporting development for devices older than iOS 7. Our latest app updates are therefore available only to the devices running iOS 7 or newer. To install Cloud Baby Monitor to your iOS 5 or iOS 6 device, first purchase it on the iOS 7 or newer device, and then download it to the older devices via AppStore/Purchases. Please see more details here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201377.
Cloud Baby Monitor for Mac works on devices running OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and newer and includes support for Mac built-in cameras as well as any supported third party USB cameras.
Any iOS app that you purchase can be installed on up to 10 iOS devices as long as they all use the same Apple ID for app purchases. You can verify the Apple ID your devices are using by going to Settings / iTunes & App Store section. Typically you purchase the app on the first device and then install it for free to all other devices.
When your devices use different Apple ID for app purchases you either need to purchase the app on each device separately or you might consider reconfiguring the devices to use shared Apple ID for purchases and separate Apple ID for iCloud backup, iMessage, FaceTime, etc. Starting with iOS 8 you can also use Family Sharing to purchase the app under one Apple ID account and then install it for free on up to six other family accounts.
Learn more about your Apple ID here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4895.

Apps for Mac and iOS can not be at this time combined into a single purchase. Apple is running two stores, the iOS App Store and the Mac App Store, and developers supporting both iOS and Mac need to build two separate apps and sell them through those two stores separately. The apps purchased through either store can be installed on up to 10 devices of the same type as long as the devices use the same Apple ID for app purchases.
Check Settings/General/Software Update to install the latest iOS version available for your device. Make sure that you are always using the latest versinon of Cloud Baby Monitor on all your devices. Check AppStore/Updates to install the latest updates.
Cloud Baby Monitor uses by default only your home WiFi network or bluetooth to transmit live audio and video between the devices. No internet connection is required.
When you opt-in, and enable Cloud Baby Monitor Unlimited Range, essentially connecting back to your home WiFi network over 3G, LTE, or from any other WiFi network (for example from your neighbor's house), the app will establish the shortest path between the devices to transmit audio and video. In that case, the audio and video will be transmitted over the internet.
All communication between the devices is always secure, interference free, and protected by industry standard encryption to make sure that you and only you have access to your baby video stream.
Cloud Baby Monitor uses by default only your home WiFi network or bluetooth to transmit live audio and video between the devices. The range is defined by your home WiFi network coverage or bluetooth range.
Learn more about WiFi and Bluetooth range here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1365.
When using Cloud Baby Monitor Unlimited Range, the app will work anywhere where you get a decent internet connection. We support monitoring over Wi-Fi, 3G, and LTE.
When monitoring over cellular data connection (3G, LTE), the parent unit device automatically switches off the video to save cellular data consumption. You can switch the video on and off manually as needed.
One hour of audio only monitoring typically consumes around 30MB of data.
One hour of audio and video monitoring typically consumes around 100MB of data.
Using Cloud Baby Monitor for audio and video monitoring requires both devies to be running with their screen on. The battery in this case will last for about 2 hours on the iPhone and 4 hours on the iPad.
Using Cloud Baby Monitor for audio only monitoring allows you to manually switch the screen off on both, child and parent unit device. In that case the battery will last for about 6 hours on the iPhone, and 8 hours on the iPad.
Your mileage will vary depending on the age of your device, quality of signal and many other factors.
The cameras built into Apple devices are not sensitive to infra red light that ise required for true night vision. This means that iPhone, iPad, and Mac are not able to capture video in the dark unless there is a source of regular visible light. Cloud Baby Monitor uses the child unit device screen or camera flash to generate light for the camera to see. The brightness of the light can be remotely controlled from the parent unit to illuminate the room just enough to see and to not disturb the sleeping baby.
To display live video from your parent unit device on your Apple TV, simply turn on AirPlay mirroring on your parent unit device before starting the app. The screen of your parent unit device will be mirrored on the Apple TV and the sounds will play through your TV speakers.
Learn more about AirPlay Mirroring at http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5209.
Using Cloud Baby Monitor on the Apple Watch is super simple. Start monitoring on your iPhone, press the sleep button to switch off the screen and keep the iPhone in your pocket. Then swipe up on the Watch to reveal a Cloud Baby Monitor Watch Glance or start a Cloud Baby Monitor Watch App and you will get the live video and noise level indicator right on your wrist.
You can also enable noise and motion alerts on your parent unit and get them automatically delivered to your Apple Watch. When the noise and motion alert is received on the Watch, the screen automatically starts showing live video and noise level indicator.
