My video monitor broke and I was about to order a new one which would cost about $150 or more. Instead I downloaded this app. We use my old iPhone 4 as the child unit and it works great! Also, never have to carry around a baby monitor anymore- just my phone! Wish I would have downloaded it before. It's also great for when you're out traveling or at a friend's house. All you need to bring is your phone! "
Great app for both home and away baby monitoring.
It's a great app, very easy to use and perfect to monitor my two children when they're napping or asleep. It's also great to use when traveling and means you have one less thing to pack!
Love this app!! My baby monitor broke & I haven't found one that I like to replace it so in the meantime I decided to try this app. We set up our iPad mini in my sons room & I use my iPhone 4 as the parent unit. Love all of the features- nightlight, lullabies, screen saver that's stars & a moon. Haven't had it lose connection really at all, really love it!
Just do it!
Worth every penny! This is the perfect video monitor for traveling with a little one. I use it at home too! Super convenient and a crazy value! Just do it - you'll be happy you did! :)

This monitor is worth every penny! It saved us money and works with all of our Apple devices! (iPod, Mac, iPhone). We love that it is mobile and it works great!"
Happy, happy, happy!
I use my old iPhone 4S as the child monitor unit and my iPhone 5S as the parent unit and this app is awesome!! Worth every penny!!! Now I can get my other kids off to school with out waking my newborn up or running up and down the stairs with any little noise I hear. I can now sit downstairs with a piece of mind and just watch and hear my son to see if he get up and I can multitask on my phone and still have the audio playing. I LOVE THIS APP!!!!!! It's a dad's best friend!!!! And moms too!!!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Cloud Baby Monitor?
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 + audio. The other device (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or a Mac) - the parent unit - is kept with the parents to watch live video + audio.
Both devices connect via WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G, or LTE, whatever works best in your situation.
What devices are supported by the Cloud Baby Monitor app?
Cloud Baby Monitor works on 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 Mac works on devices running OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and newer and includes support for device built-in cameras as well as any third party USB cameras that work with a Mac.
Do I need to pay multiple times to install the Cloud Baby Monitor app to all my devices?
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.
You can learn more about your Apple ID here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4895.
Starting with iOS8 you can also use Family Sharing to purchase the app under one family account (Apple ID) and then install it for free on up to other six family accounts (Apple IDs).
You can learn more about Apple iOS Family Sharing here: http://www.apple.com/icloud/family-sharing/.
Do I need to pay extra to get the Cloud Baby Monitor for Mac?
Apps for Mac and iOS can not be at this time combined into a single purchase. Apple is running two stores, iOS App Store and 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. Please see the answer above.
How secure is the Cloud Baby Monitor app?
Cloud Baby Monitor will by default use only local WiFi network, or bluetooth to transmit audio and video between the devices. No internet connection is required.
When you opt-in and use Cloud Baby Monitor over unlimited range, essentially connecting back to your home WiFi network over 3G, LTE, or from another 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.
In both of these cases is all communication between the devices secure, interference free and protected by industry standard encryption to make sure that you and only you have access to your baby video stream.
Connecting with the child unit device for the first time requires that the connection is accepted on the child device.
What is the Cloud Baby Monitor app range?
The Unlimited Range feature allows your parent unit to connect to the child unit over any reasonable internet connection (WiFi, 3G, LTE). There is no special configuration needed, just login using the same Cloud Baby Monitor account on both child unit and parent unit devices. The range in this case is virtually unlimited.
When you are not using the Unlimited Range feature, the parent unit connects with the child unit over shared WiFi network or by using Bluetooth. Range in this case is limited by WiFi and Bluetooth signal coverage in your area.
You can learn more about WiFi and Bluetooth range here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1365.
What is the Cloud Baby Monitor data consumption when monitoring over cellular data network (3G, 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 on/off the video manually as needed.
One hour of audio only monitoring typically consumes around 30MB of data.
One hour of video + audio monitoring typically consumes around 100MB of data.
The actual data consumption can vary based on what you are actually monitoring. Generally speaking, the more the scene is changing and the more sounds there are (for example when monitoring kids playing in the garden) the more data will be consumed.
How does the Cloud Baby Monitor night light work?
The cameras built into iOS devices and Mac computers are not sensitive to IR light and therefore can not capture any video when it is very dark. The only way to help them "see" is to use some external source of light. Cloud Baby Monitor uses the child unit device screen or camera flash whose brightness can be remotely controlled from the parent unit to generate just enough light for the camera to capture video while not disturbing the sleeping baby.
How should I use the Cloud Baby Monitor Signal Quality Indicator?
The green little dot located next to the battery indicator on your parent unit shows how good your connection between child unit and parent unit is. When the dot is green, the signal quality is excellent. When the dot turns yellow the signal quality is acceptable for real time monitoring. When the dot turns red the signal quality is really bad and you should try to move either the child unit or the parent unit to get a better connectivity.
Quality of the connection depends on many factors: distance between the devices, distance between the devices and the WiFi router, number of devices connected to the WiFi network, to name just a few. How to influence some of these factors and to learn more please take a look at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1365.
How can I use the Cloud Baby Monitor app with Apple TV?
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. You can learn more about AirPlay Mirroring at http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5209.
How long can I use the Cloud Baby Monitor app when using my devices on battery power?
Battery consumption depends on whether the baby monitor is used in audio only or video + audio mode. The actual battery consumption will also vary depending on the type and age of your device and brightness of the screen.
In audio only mode, iPhone will last around 4 hours, iPad around 8 hours.
In video + audio mode, iPhone will last around 2 hours, iPad around 4 hours.
