Coming soon: the first live demonstration of the Smart Baby Monitor

After San Francisco in September, Withings is heading for Berlin for the European version of Health 2.0 on October 27 and 28, where we will continue to promote our vision for improving health and well-being with connected devices. During this event, Withings CEO Cedric Hutchings will take the stage to make the first public live demonstration of the Smart Baby Monitor and display the capabilities of the devices and the functionalities of the application.

The Smart Baby Monitor comes equipped with a high-resolution, wide-angle camera, a powerful zoom and infrared vision to allow parents to watch their baby anytime, anywhere. Its microphone and speaker also allow for two-way communication with the toddler as well as other interactions, such as playing lullabies or turning on the night light. The Smart Baby Monitor connects with your smartphone, using either Bluetooth, local wireless network or over the Internet, enabling you and your family or friends to watch your baby from anywhere in the world, as long as your phone has Internet access.

The Smart Baby Monitor companion application, “WithBaby”, will be available on iOS devices with the release of the product and a web application accessible from any browser that supports Flash will follow soon after. The Smart Baby Monitor will be available for purchase in Europe at the end of October and a few weeks later in North America.

If you’re curious to see what the Smart Baby Monitor can do and you’re around Berlin on October 28th, be sure to check this demonstration! The demo will take place around 2:00 pm during the « Launch! » session, dedicated to debuting technologies. You can find all the details about the Health 2.0 Berlin conference at www.health2con.com/europe.

The Smart Baby Monitor has many features and Cédric might not have time to demonstrate all of them during his presentation. Which ones are you most eager to see?

    Hi Fitnessmentor, The Smart Baby Monitor will be available for purchase in Europe at the end of October and a few weeks later in North America!

    Hi Eric, it will be possible to use two Smart Baby Monitors with one phone. You simply create a user account for each and go from one to another on the application. However, the SBM has a wide-angle camera and high resolution with a zoom, so it will be possible to monitor two children in the same room with a single unit if you position it well. Hope this was helpful!

  • Reda

    I am really looking forward to this.
    What are the retail channels?

  • http://blog.withings.com/ Withings

    Hi Reda, we can’t make any commitments concerning third party resellers, but the Smart Baby Monitor will be available on http://www.withings.com. from day 1!

  • Henry

    Can the monitor be ceiling mounted so that it can look down on a child in a cot? Simple velcro would do it if the monitor can be unfolded flat- (power supply issues?)

  • http://blog.withings.com/ Withings

    Hi Henry, the Smart Baby Monitor will be delivered with an accessory that allows you to attach it to an edge, such as a bed. Hope this answered your question!

    A baby monitor is an absolutely essential part of any parents “must-have” list. I look forward to this product.

  • http://blog.withings.com/ Withings

    Hi Gilles, I’m sure the Smart Baby Monitor will live up to your expectations! The price will be announced at the release of the SBM.

  • i love all withings products

    will the baby monitor be able to take still pictures or video?

  • http://blog.withings.com/ Withings

    Hi, yes the Smart Baby Monitor will be able to take photos, which will be saved on your phone!

  • http://blog.withings.com/ Withings

    Hi Leash, unfortunately we don’t distribute to Australia from our shop, so it depends on local dealers and on third part resellers. We don’t know for now if there will be any or who it would be.

  • http://blog.withings.com/ Withings

    Hi Martin, yes you can create as many accounts as you want for the Smart Baby Monitor, and three users can manipulate it at the same time. An Android app won’t be available immediately but will be shortly after the release.

    Bonjour Gilles, il faut avoir soit une connexion fixe, soit du wi-fi ou du bluetooth pour utiliser le Babyphone. Concernant la sortie, nous attendons actuellement l’accord des autorités Américaines et Européennes pour lancer la commercialisation du SBM. Nous vous tiendrons informé de sa date de lancement dès que nous le pourrons.

  • http://blog.withings.com/ Withings

    Bonjour Globe59, cela va prendre encore quelques semaines.

  • http://blog.withings.com/ Withings

    Hi there, thank you for your comment. With the SBM you can monitor noises, motion, temperature and humidity in the baby’s room, but not the breathing rate. Hope this answered your question.

  • http://blog.withings.com/ Withings

    Hi Gilles,
    The Smart Baby Monitor is not just another baby monitor. It packs the best technology and a number of unique functionalities into a carefully studied design.
    The price includes not just the device, but also access to many associated services for your comfort and that of the baby: Interactions with baby, custom alerts for noise, movement, temperature and humidity, and multiple connection options that allow you to use the WithBaby app anywhere.
    Finally, the simplicity of use and the quality of the components make the Smart Baby Monitor a first-rate product. Find out all the details at http://www.withings.com/smartbabymonitor

    300 euros ça fait quand même cher … Trop cher pour moi. Je ne l’acheterai donc pas. Dommage après tant d’attente

  • http://blog.withings.com/ Withings

    Hi there, for now this service is free, and it will always be free when the SBM works on the same network as the device that you’re using it with and when using bluetooth. But at some point we will have to charge a small fee for when it works on two different networks for more than 15 minutes, as it then passes through Withings’ server, which implies some expenses. This will be the case when you use WiFi at work, as this is not the same network as the one your SBM is working on. Hope this answered your question.
