iBaby M3 babycam

Let’s take a look at the iBaby M3S baby cam

The iBaby M3S nanny cam was designed to be used with your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and is a great looking baby cam with lots of handy features.

  • 2-way communication
  • IR night time vision
  • Pan & Tilt
  • Sound and motion alerts
  • Integrated Facebook and twitter feature
  • Up to 4 people can observe your baby at the same time

With 2 way communication, IR night time vision, pan & tilt, sound and motions alerts via SMS and email, an integrated social media function, multiple users at the same time and free cloud storage – you get a lot for your money with the iBaby M3S Monitor.

2-way communication

One of the most important features in a nanny cam, for most parents, is being able to talk to their baby, toddlers, children, partner or babysitter, at the same time as they are watching them via the camera.

So with the iBaby M3S Monitor, you have high quality audio and vision, making it easy to keep in touch or just make sure that your family is safe at home.

IR Night time vision

With the iBaby monitor M3S, you have 16 foot of good night time vision, so that you can check on your baby or children during the night quite easily, even when the lights are not on.

Pan & Tilt

This is another great feature in a baby cam, because you really need to be able to rempotely control the camera and move the lens around the room. This makes it easy to follow a toddler around the room or just keep an eye on everything, making sure everyone is OK at home.

With the iBaby M3S nanny cam, you have a 360 degree pan and a 70 degree tilt, which you can operate remotely from your smartphone.

Sound and motion alerts

As soon as there is any motion or sound at home, you can be instantly notified, so you can keep on top of everything at home. You can set the levels at which any sound or motion notifications are sent to you via SMS or email, so that you are not constantly alerted for every little sound or movement.

Integrated social media posting

You can snap and share photo memories of your baby and share them with friends and family via the integrated Facebook and Twitter facility.  If you hop on and off your social media accounts all day long, then this is a great feature to have, letting you easily share your happy snaps to your friends and family.

Multiple users

You can also invite 4 friends to join you live and watch your baby’s first few steps or just to see how cute they are! You can actually have an unlimited number of people invited to use the app and observe your baby, but only 4 can do so in real time together at once.

A trick with inviting friends to use the app is to ask your friends or relatives to sign up for the app first and then invite them to view your live footage, as once you have used an email in an invitation it cannot be used twice (so if they are not already registered on the app then they have to use another email address once you have sent them an invitation).

Customer Reviews

Pros:  Just over half of all customer reviewers gave the iBaby M3S nanny cam a 4 or 5 star rating. Customers like the clarity of the images, the fact that adding extra cameras is a simple process and also the ability to share snaps on social media and the ease of set up.

It’s great. I can hear my son’s voice clearly, and see what he is doing.

My sister loves that she can log on to wifi and check in on her little one while she is at work.

This gives you a full picture w/audio on everything going on in the kid’s room.

Perfect for the nursery or for watching my older kids in the playroom.

100% reliable

Cons: Around a quarter of all customer reviewers gave the iBaby M3S monitor a one star rating. The main complaints were with poor connectivity, that it doesn’t work well with Android devices, poor quality images and there were quite a few complaints about customer support not being easy to contact.

Additional information

The iBaby app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

You can add an unlimited number of cameras to the iBaby network, unlike other systems where you are limited to 4 cameras in total.

 


 

Conclusion

The iBaby M3S baby monitor is a great little nanny cam with 2-way communication, pan and tilt, infra-red night vision and free access to the cloud. You can also share snaps with friends and relatives via social media and give friends access to the app so you can share precious moments together.

The main problem is that the iBaby M3S and the iBaby M2 were designed for Apple mobile devices and the Android app is not very reliable at present. So if you have a new model iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, then these are a good choice, otherwise it might be better to read one of my other nanny cam reviews for a more appropriate baby cam for your Android mobile device.

Most customers really love this nanny cam, but some have had problems making it work properly and have not had much help from customer support. These customers are in the minority – most people have no problems.
