Today’s audio and video baby monitors provide some degree of reassurance to parents, but typically these devices don’t have any smarts to them and are simply antennas that transmit pictures and sound from one room to another. A new smart product expected to be released soon puts together a great deal of technology to offer active monitoring of children.
The MonBaby is shaped like a large button that can be snapped onto a kid’s clothing. Within it are sensors that detect the child’s breathing, movement, and sleep position. This data is automatically sent over to a paired iOS or Android app where it can be analyzed and where alarms will also appear if breathing stops, the child is moving too much, or if she flipped onto her tummy. Additionally, parents with freewheeling kids will be happy to know that the MonBaby button will let you know if your baby fell out of the crib.
The device can be preordered for $169 at Monbaby.com.
Here’s a video showing off the various features of the MonBaby:
