Our take on the BabyPing Wi-Fi® Baby Monitor by Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
Meanwhile, in the wee hours
It's 2AM and you're sleeping soundly. Your newborn's been home for a month now and is just beginning to sleep for longer periods. And thanks to your BabyPing Wi-Fi® Baby Monitor, the sleep you are getting isn't disturbed by extraneous noises — the SmartFilter™ audio technology makes sure that you'll hear your baby, but not the amplified hum every time your central air turns on. And when she does cry out, you'll be able to see whether it's a passing discomfort or a pressing need, as the BabyPing has 30 infrared LEDs that invisibly illuminate your child's room for the camera.
The Y-cam BabyPing baby monitor features some clever technology.
Secure and versatile
Unlike many other baby monitors, the BabyPing operates over your home's Wi-Fi® network, in concert with two free downloadable Apple® iOS® apps. Your video/audio stream is secure, thanks to signal encryption and password protection. And the BabyPing monitor is ready for international travel as well, as its power supply handles 100-240V and comes with US/UK/EU power receptacle adapters. The apps are Apple® AirPlay® compliant, so you can even send the signal to something like an Apple TV® connected to your home entertainment system.
Watch from anywhere
The BabyPing+ app actually lets you connect to your monitor's stream from almost anywhere, via Wi-Fi or 3G and 4G cellular phone networks, so if you're a busy exec or salesperson on the road you can still check in on your precious one from far away. That's a lot more satisfying than a phone call from the hotel room. The full-color image will be clear and sharp.
Get smart alerts
The BabyPing will also alert you when it hears your baby cry, even if you're not watching on your device at the moment, and it will deliver similar alerts if your network signal is interrupted. And setting up the monitor to work with your apps is just a matter of a few simple taps on your smart device. You won't need a computer to set anything up — absolutely no technical wizardry is required.

- User Guide
Overview: The BabyPing Video Monitor, made by Y-Cam Solutions, is a network-connected video baby monitor that allows you to monitor your child using your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch (iOS 5.1 or later required). It is equipped with a wide angle lens, infrared LEDs that allow you to monitor in the dark, and a microphone. It sets up in minutes through the free BabyPing app--no computer is required. Because BabyPing is network-compatible, you can monitor at home or peek in when you're away from home. You can even share your network password with relatives so they can see the baby from a distance.
Video Camera: The BabyPing has a wide-angle lens with a viewing angle of 60° horizontal and 45° vertical. The 310,000-pixel, 1/4" CMOS image sensor outputs a video signal with 640 x 480 resolution at 30 frames per second. The built-in microphone picks up any sound your baby makes. Surrounding the lens are 30 infrared LEDs that provide a viewing distance of up to 10 meters (33 feet) in total darkness, without the glow of lights that may disturb your baby's sleep.
Smart Filter: The front-mounted microphone picks up every sound your baby makes. You can engage the BabyPing Smart Filter technology, which will cut out background noise and static, and you will only be disturbed if your baby cries.
Constant-Connect: The BabyPing uses Constant-Connect technology to maintain a solid wireless connection between the monitor and your iDevice. If network problems occur, BabyPing will immediately alert you that the connection with your iDevice is lost.
No Interference: Radio signals from traditional baby monitors are one the main sources of Wi-Fi interference in urban areas. Because BabyPing operates on your Wi-Fi network, no extra signals are given off or received. You won't receive interference from nearby two-way radios, or pick up signals from your neighbor's baby monitor. Conversely, your neighbors won't be able to hear what's going on in your home.
Security: The BabyPing Video Monitor uses the latest technology for complete privacy and peace-of-mind. Its double-layer security system includes leading encryption methods (WEP and WPA/WPA2) and password protection, so you have total control over who can access your monitor.
Alerts: You can configure the alerts to suit you. The BabyPing app allows you to set the alert to vibrate or silent mode so you alone receive the alert without disturbing others. The app remains active in the background on your iDevice, even if your device is on standby. You can continue to perform other tasks, such as sending emails, talking on the phone, or listening to music, while simultaneously monitoring your child. When your baby cries and triggers an alert, the BabyPing app pauses the music or interrupts your call so you can respond.
Setup: Setting up the BabyPing system is simple. First, you plug in the monitor to power and to your router using the supplied network cable. Next, the BabyPing app should be installed on your iDevice. Running the app connects the monitor to your network and lets you set up your security passwords. Once the Wi-Fi setup is confirmed, you can unplug the monitor from the router (if you want to operate wirelessly) and mount the monitor near the baby.
Mounting: The BabyPing comes with a versatile mounting bracket that allows you to place the unit on a shelf or mount it to a wall. Once the monitor is mounted, you can adjust the camera angle and tighten the ball joint to lock it into position. For optimal picture and sound, the monitor should be placed about 6 feet from your baby's crib. The supplied cable clips keep the power cord out of the way.
