    Really Wanted This to Be Excellent, April 3, 2012
    By

    This assess is from: Withings Smart Baby Monitor, White (Baby Product)

    Just want to start this off by saying I really wanted this to work well. My daughter was born in the fall and when looking for a baby monitor, I saw the Withings unit and loved the concept, Issue was at the time it was not out yet. As soon as I got the email in Jan that it was released for the US I bought the unit. I didn’t rashly post an immediate assess since I despise when people do that, so this is now my suggestion after a excellent 2 months of use.

    Unfortunately I tried every which way to fall in like with this product, but I did have to finally return it. There are certainly a lot of positive aspects of the unit and the SW, but a few negatives that in the end of the day made me realize this product just isn’t ready for prime time. The largest problem is that if the unit isn’t near 100% reliable, its not worth the risk when dealing with an infant. I found myself constantly in succession this monitor as well as my other monitor as a backup, which is not a long term solution.

    So very quickly after unboxing I was set up, that truly was a breeze. You initially connect via Bluetooth, but then set up over WiFi. Had the unit set up over 3 devices (Ipad, Iphone, and Ipod touch). I keenly awaited the first night to test this out.

    So first reactions and several positives:
    1. Loved the way the app worked in the background. It didn’t tie up the device, or the battery, yet still told you and let you hear the monitor
    2. The trending, while limited to 15 minutes, was cool to see graphically the activity on the motion and noises
    3. The history log as well was fantastic to see the patterns that occur through the night, be fantastic if this could also be graphed, but that’s just SW App development
    4. The temp and humidity monitoring were also excellent, this was the first unit I could find that did both along with having iphone integration.
    5. The music and lights are really bells and whistles, I don’t use them, but its added features

    Most of my cons are really product point and quality. This wouldn’t be the first time I saw a fantastic thought, for a rather expensive product fail on product quality. Rather upsetting, but also tells me there is no hope for it being fixed until a later relief.

    1. The unit is basically a large clam shell. Its really even a bit larger then I expected. When you fold it up, you literally have to point it straight forward otherwise the base gets in the way of the image. This literally cut out about 30-40% of my crib. After one or two times of my child crying, but being out of view I had to change something. I literally had to make a white finished wooden wedge with a rubber top and a Velcro strap to angle the entire withings unit down to capture most of the crib. It was better, but you shouldn’t have to do that for a $300 monitor.
    2. The night vision is really sub-par. Man nights it took squinting to see if the baby was on her back or her stomach. Average would have been OK, but I didn’t expect it to be substantially worse that run of the mill record units. Over again, for $300 why not beef this up.
    3. I was really able to deal with the first 2 issues, but #3 was the game breaker. The unit is not stable. It disconnects and buffers endlessly on occasion. This is not anything I was comfortable taking a risk on. I’d say realistically it was about 5-15% of the time, meaning one morning every 1-2 weeks I would awake to find out that I was not monitoring my baby all. Scary right? Literally the application would say you have been disconnected with your monitor and could not be reconnected. Some times the unit buffered and never would let you really commence monitoring. Not all the time, but enough for me to not take a risk of not having a monitor.
    4. From my experiences above, I can also tell you there is no quick support resolution. You cannot call the company. You must email and get a response back anywhere from 1-5 days. They are helpful when you get them, but being in a different time zone it was at least a day to troubleshoot each step.

    To elaborate more on #3. The unit has Bluetooth connectivity in case the WiFi fails. This never is sustainable, even just one room away. My router, the monitor and the device in most cases were withing 25 feet of each other. I even tried the unit at someone else’s household to see if its my arrangement. I ran into the same issues. Sometimes shutting down the apps completely and relaunching helped, but I cannot do that when I’m sleeping! Eventually I was austerely told that it would not get better and I must return the unit. Over again, any other device, I’d chalk it up to being n ahead of schedule adopter and take the pros and cons, but with my child, there is no risks worth taking.

    I’m hoping this helps those on the fence and also gets some attention to look at the product quality. Like I opened with, I truly wanted this to work as I like the concept and the…

    El Duque (Los Angeles, CA) –

    This assess is from: Withings Smart Baby Monitor, White (Baby Product)
    I really wanted to like this. iPhone/iPad integration, portable, it has some nice features. I am comparing this against my Sharx SCNC2700W camera. Both are about $300. Sharx info can be found here:

    Sharx Security VIPcella-IR SCNC2700W Wifi Wireless b/g/n IP arrangement camera with MicroSD DVR and Right Day/Night vision

    I did not care for any of the push notifications, other parents may like this figure. I don’t care to hear any audio since I live in a small condo. The talk back figure is nice, although with a slight delay (to be expected).

    What I like:
    * Music figure is nice, but could use some more songs
    * I like the iPhone/iPad app
    * Pinch and zoom figure is okay, but I can do the same thing with Sharx camera, although they work a small differently. The quality increases slightly on the Withings camera everywhere the Sharx camera has no quality gain, but also doesn’t need to refresh.
    * Frame rate seems to stay honestly smooth when connected through ethernet. It’s slightly better than Sharx when viewing on iPad.
    * Portability – This is a nice bonus (1 hour of record on battery) but I don’t cover this in my assess because I would only use this 1% of the time.
    * Wireless quality and frame rate don’t degrade too much compared to Ethernet (with a excellent indicate).

    What I don’t like:
    * My main gripe is that I can’t view the record on my computer. I believe Withings has said this figure is coming in the future.
    * Record quality – not on par with the Sharx camera I own in quality.
    * Night Vision quality not as excellent as Sharx. I would say the Sharx camera night vision is A LOT better really. The Withings IR lights are too bright in the middle.
    * No option to force IR mode on/off.
    * No option to turn off audio on iPhone. This could be fixed with a firmware update, but not sure if it will ever happen.
    * Delay – I noticed maybe a 1.5 second delay when connected through ethernet. A small under 2 seconds wireless. Sharx delay is very nearly no delay when viewing on a computer, and less than a half second on iPad. These numbers are with a honestly strong wireless N connection.
    * Sharx is a half second quicker on WiFi than Withings is connected through Ethernet when viewing both on the iPad. I don’t mind a small delay, and even 1 second to me isn’t that terrible.

    For a baby record monitor, I don’t reckon you need HD quality (Sharx is only 640×480). You mainly just need to see the baby and be able to tell if they are moving, awake, pacifier out, etc. The Withings monitor is certainly excellent enough to be able to see all of this. The Sharx camera is noticeably better which is a nice bonus. The Withings camera has a wider angle of view than Sharx. Sharx certainly has a lot more options – continuous tape, snapshots, dydns setup, etc. Sharx does involve more arrangement knowledge to setup, everywhere the Withings is simpler to setup out of the box.

    If you are not experienced in arrangement setup, DHCP reservation, dyndns configuration, don’t mind slightly lower quality, and don’t need to view it on a computer (yet), and don’t mind a slight lag, the Withings monitor is decent. If you are a more advanced user, want better quality, instantaneous feedback, and more advanced options, Sharx would be the way to go. If Withings optical quality was a small better, and I could view it on a computer, it might be a different tale, but I reckon I am going to keep the Sharx unit. The portability, and iPhone/iPad integration is pretty cool and nerdy, but Sharx still looks better using Safari browser in iPad than Withings does with their app. I really hope Withings does well with this, because I reckon they could make a lot better 2.0 product, and a small more work. That said, it isn’t a terrible early offering in my opinion.

    The largest deal breaker is Withings charges to view away from home. I reckon 15 minutes each day are provided free. My wife likes the setup of the Sharx so she can see her baby when she has time at work. I would like it if Withings allowed a dns setup so I could use my own bandwidth for away-from-home use.

    6-1-2012 *I guess Withings has allowed unlimited viewing away from home which is nice, but it must have been offered in the first house. I still stand by my 3 star assess*

    There are many many other record cameras, IP cameras, & Baby monitors on the market. These are just the two that I have used. Really, I have used the AngelCare monitor as well, but that has the worst quality of all, even though it has a nice portability factor.

    Verified Hold(What’s this?)
    This assess is from: Withings Smart Baby Monitor, White (Baby Product)
    Before we bought the Withing Baby Monitor, we did a ton of research on different consumer sites. It came down to the Withings versus a Foscam IP camera. We finished up deciding on the Withings monitor because it was essentially an IP camera built up to be a baby monitor. There were a lot of fantastic features like the skill to play songs, the night light, and night vision. Plus it was well-matched for both Apple and Android products (very vital since we have both). If you watch the demo record on the Withings web page, the resolution is fantastic during the day. Night vision also looks very clear. Can’t go incorrect with this hold right?

    The camera arrives, and I go to download the app on my Android. The Google Play store tells me “device not well-matched”. Okay, well let me try my tablet. It has a different version of the Android OS so it must work.. “device not well-matched”. After scouring their website I did find a buried link to an Android app. It works on my tablet, but crashes on my phone. Things are not starting off well.

    We test out the record. I have the camera on in a decently lit room. My wife is on the couch maybe six feet away from the camera, and I can barely see her. The pinch to zoom works, but all I get is a garbled pixelated mess. There was also close to an 8-10 second lag. This was over Wi-Fi, and I know my arrangement isn’t congested. I plugged the camera into my gigabit LAN just to see if it was any better. It was not.

    I’m still really trying to find a reason to like this product. We turn off all the lights and test the night vision. You cannot see anything. Night vision does not work at all. The only things that did seem to work on the monitor were the lullaby’s, and night light. But with a $250 price tag, I really need more out of my device.

    We returned the device and bought a Foscam FI8910W IP camera. At less than $90, it does everything I need and more. Of course it does require a small bit more know how in setting up versus the Withings monitor, but it really is well worth it. Lag time is virtually unnoticeable. The clarity of the record is exceptional. There are apps available for both Android and Apple. And the night vision is incredible. I can zoom in on a picture on my wall while it’s pitch black and make out the lettering.

    In summary, I hope this helps someone out in the future. I went into this really hoping for an incredible product, and just could not be more let down. I saved a ton of money with another product, and it works.
