Win a BabyPing video baby monitor.
Lately it seems as if everywhere we look, someone is having a baby -- the neighbors, the sister, the boss. In this era of the iPhone that can do anything, it should be no surprise that it would be possible to turn it into a baby monitor. One company, BabyPing, has done exactly that -- and MacNN has teamed up with them to give away one of their BabyPing Video monitors to our readers.
The BabyPing Video Monitor is both a local baby monitor that alerts you to every cry through your Apple device, and a mobile Internet viewer so you can see your baby from anywhere using 3G, 4G or any Wi-Fi network. It connects directly with an iOS device with no need for a computer, ensuring privacy and security since footage does not stream through the Internet.
Parents can hear, view and monitor their baby at all times via an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using the BabyPing App or enhanced BabyPing+ App, which run in the background so the iPhone can continue to be used for other tasks. The Constant-Connect feature automatically notifies parents when the baby is upset or the connection is broken. This monitor retails for $200, and is available at BabyPing.com.
