My entire family uses this!
I read an Engadget article and recommended this to my older brother and he was happy with it. So when it was time for me to have a baby, I got the same camera and app setup. Now my wife and I both use it on our iPhones and iPads when we are away and at home. Our nanny has an iPod touch and uses this while we're at work. Both our families have iPhones and when they babysit, they just need the app. We made sure our nanny and parents don't have access to the external IP address so they can listen in when they are not in our house. The great thing is that when we expect another baby, we can add another camera and monitor both rooms on the same app.
I really like the feature where you can adjust the sensitivity of the audio when it auto mutes. This way, you won't hear small noises your baby makes or breathing and only hear the audio when it hits a certain volume threshold.
NOTE: you need to be a bit technical to setup the camera and make changes to your router. For example, you need to understand how to manually assign an IP address to the camera so you always get the same address. In addition, if you want to access this camera externally, you need to understand how to forward specific ports to the camera's IP address on your router. It's not difficult to setup by any means, but you need to have some technical capabilities.
Made out to be too difficult
This is by far the most complicated baby monitoring device there is out there. It constantly disconnects and is not reliable. I had to buy a cheap old baby monitor just for sound because in the beginning there were several times that I would wake up hearing my child cry down the hall and not through the monitoring device on my phone. We have already spent at least three hours on the phone with support several different times. I think there are so much other easy ones out there that you just plug in and go and not have to go through an hour and a half of set up that I wish we had known that when we were shopping for a baby monitor. Also another thing to think about if you have a babysitter/grandparent come to watch her child they either have to pay money for the app, or they have no way to monitor your child without being in the next room. I really thought it was just going to be a little bit easier, like Skype or face time. You just hit send and it works perfectly. Very disappointed and very stressed that this is the second time this week it has cut out and I don't know how to get it back up and running without being on the phone again with support.
Hands down the best
I purchased a Ycam to use as a baby monitor. I purchased an ip cam specifically to attach to our network and monitor via phone or computer from anywhere.
I tried 3 different apps, including the one specifically from Ycam. I was surprised at how bad they were and was wondering if the ip cam was a bad idea. Then I did some research and read a review online from a dad in the the same boat and insisted the sunshine app was worth the $.
I'm so glad I tried it. Hands down the best cam app and has more functionality from any other I've tried. Love the fact you can run it in the background on mute but it turns on and sends you alert, picture or video if there's a noise. The picture quality is fantastic and there are tons of customizable options.I'm not a big app review guy but this deserves special mention.
