Party on Parents, the Babyphone iphone application is your portable baby sensor
Hold on to your hats iphone fans, I may have found the most useful iphone application ever. Well, let’s not forget about Total Baby, which is still going strong for me, but let’s just say I’m at least as excited as I was when I discovered that trusty application. My latest discovery is the BabyPhone iphone app, which, in the briefest of explanations, let’s you monitor your baby with your iphone – calling or emailing another designated phone number (or email) when it senses your baby crying or moving. It works; I’ve already tested it on the Christmas, New Year party circuit. Quite simply, it’s genius.
No more popping in and out of the party/dining room every five seconds to see if your precious one is still sleeping peacefully in the room where you’ve left him or her, as opposed to the hysterical crying you’re constantly imagining could be going on unnoticed and unattended. No more pretending to listen to conversations and appear relaxed when you’re actually wound up like a rubber band trying to separate the sounds of voices from what could possibly be a cry from the distant room. No more ducking in and out of the party to plaster your ear against the door or opening the door only to find the baby was sleeping… until you opened the door.
Depending on the noise coming in to the baby’s room from the party you can set the level of noise sensitivity in the BabyPhone application accordingly. Your phone will call to another phone and keep calling with whatever frequency you set. When you pick up, it’s just like someone calling you from the room – you can listen to the noises in the room that have set off the sensor to call you and judge whether you need to dash madly to your child or saunter off when the mood takes you. It will also play your baby a soothing lullaby of your choice while you’re on your way.
As with all iphone applications there are a number of versions. This BabyPhone is from Koolistov for USD 1.99. And as I said, I’ve tested it and it worked perfectly for me.
Here are some screenies of your very easy to use and follow settings options.
You can do a bit of testing in regards to noise levels when you arrive at your function, and then you just leave the phone in the room with the baby. Super simple and an absolute winner. Relax and enjoy the party.
