Turn your smartphone into a modern baby monitor with realtime audio and video transmission and unrestricted range over the internet.
** How does it work? **
Note: You need two devices. The following devices are supported: Android phone, Android tablet, Windows PC/Notebook, Mac OSX PC/Notebook ( Download PC/Mac version at http://www.babyphonemobile.com )
1.) Device A: Placed near the baby's sleeping placed and acts as "Sender"
2.) Device B: Taken along by the parents and acts as "Receiver"
3.) The App connects Device A with Device B and streams the audio recorded by Device A to Device B and allows Device B to remotely take pictures and videos through Device A.
** Is it for free? / What is a license? **
The app is free to try but requires a license for regular usage.
Without license, the app starts in trial mode:
All features are available and can be tested but the connection is cut every 30 minutes and requires a restart of the sender (free trial mode can be used as often as you like)
For regular operation, we charge the following. The money is used to settle our monthly costs of running a server cluster for the app and to support further development.
* Regular: 15 Days at $1.25
* Subscription: $1.73 per month (save 30%)
* Long Term: 365 Days at $18 (save 40%)
** Important: Only one license is required for your devices and only on the devices acting as "Sender" require a license. After you bought your license you will receive a license number (also available in the app under "license manager" -> "license number") that you can enter on all your other devices that shall act as "Sender" by using "license manager" -> "license number". Per license, one "Sender" may be online at the very same time.
** Server Cluster? What is this? And what about privacy? **
By using our app, you can connect two devices to a modern baby monitor. This works with any internet connection, be it 3G, 4G, WiFi, etc. In order to allow a reliable monitoring connection in all those situations, all data is run through a dedicated server cluster operated by us.
* Privacy is one of our major concerns, that is:
The connection to the cluster is secured and we do neither store nor record any of the audio or video data run though our cluster. If you wish, you can even add another layer of security by encrypting your data with a custom password only known to you. This makes it even technically impossible for us to spy on any audio or video data. Furthermore, we never collect any of your personal data. We neither ask for an e-mail address nor any other of your personal data. All payment transactions are processed by Google and they only give us anonymous order ids but neither your name nor address. So you can be sure that your privacy is secured when using our app.
