New FREE iPhone / iPad Baby Monitor App

Postby SunshineApps » Tue Aug 07, 2012 2:40 am

Hi All, We are trying something new with our Foscam Apps, a Free App!! Of course it's quite limited because we still need to make some money from the main Apps, but it gives you a taste of what's possible!

App is Universal! and provides Video & Audio from one camera without any IAP.

Have a look at our other Apps if you need more camera controls. Our 'Baby Monitor HD' App supports up to 4 Foscams with Video & Audio at the same time! Plus audio alerts, background audio, landscape video, PT controls and a bunch of other stuff you'd never find on a traditional baby monitor :)

Supported cameras are listed on the App Store:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/baby-monitor-free/id543379920?mt=8

If you have another camera model that works, please let us know so we can update the list. Thanks. Peter.

+ Audio Alerts - Sound, Vibrate and local notification if the app is in the background.
+ Background audio support! ie. keep using your phone while the monitor is running.
+ Switchable IR Night Vision
+ 4 Simultaneous Live Digital Video Feeds
+ New: 4 Simultaneous Audio streams
+ Mute, Auto-Mute (Squelch) & Sensitivity
+ Portrait or Landscape - iPod Touch, iPhone & iPad
+ Audio History Display
+ New: MyCam2Go support - video from 2nd iOS device
+ Customizable Theme & Pictures
+ Away Mode for simple access via 3G
+ P/T controls, including presets
+ many other advanced camera controls!

Thanks
Peter

How about walk out the door, and your baby monitor keeps running! Our latest update for 'Baby Monitor HD' now supports an 'auto away mode' Which means when your device switches over to 3G, the App will switch over to a secondary ip address or host name auto-magically!

PS thanks for the great feedback and support regarding our Free App, we do intend to update it soon, but first we have some more exciting new features to add to 'Baby Monitor HD'...

No plans so far, Android is so fragmented now it makes life hard work for developers. Although having a new aspect ratio on the iPhone5 also wasn't welcome news :) We have an android device in house for testing with, and I'll post back here if we take it any further. Thanks.

We would really appreciate it if anyone is willing to share some screenshots of the App running that we could use for the iTunes store and marketing purposes. You can take a screen shot on iOS with the power button and main front button being pressed at the same time.
Thanks!

Seasons greetings and a very big thank you to everyone for their support this year!

We are pleased to announce that we are well on the way with our v6.0 'Baby Monitor HD' iOS App. The App recently celebrated 2 years on the App store, and I want to thank everyone for their suggestions and feedback that has made the App so popular.

It's really rewarding to read about how the Apps are keeping families in touch from across the world. I still have lots of ideas for the App, and you'll be seeing a lot more user requested features already in V6.0.

We still plan to keep our 'Baby Monitor Free' Foscam App offering, so you can see the technology works before buying 'Baby Monitor HD'. So please support our advertising partners, or consider an upgrade to 'Baby Monitor HD' which supports up to 4 cameras, streaming Audio & Video at the same time ie. no switching between cameras required! Also a ton more features like Pan Tilt, Alerts, Auto WiFi / 3G switching, Video recording, Night time dimmer, IR switching, and much more!

Thanks. Peter.

Sorry, still no plans at this time. I can barely keep up with new features on the iOS side :) and now iOS7 to deal with.

Anyway if you still have an iOS device around, we have just released an update for the Free App that now includes Pan / Tilt controls for older cameras, and experimental video support for the FI9821W range of new cameras.

Maybe when the Nexus 5 comes out I will have another look at Android :)

Cheers
Peter

Not trying to hijack Peter's thread but our Android product "myLiveCams" (free and pro) supports all Foscam cameras (including 9821 v2) and we have audio squelch/alarms for baby monitor features.

It took us about a year and a half to produce the Android version so I can echo what Peter is saying about the challenges of developing for multiple platforms.
