    Anyone use a baby monitor with there iPhone or ipad? I'm looking for a gift for someone and wonder if there's a good one that works with iOS? I like the idea of the WeMo stuff by Belkin, but prefer video not just audio.

    Thanks for the links, I'm looking for some feedback from anyone here that's used one. And I am looking for something that they can use with there iPhones, not with its own little display.

    I use a Foscam FI8910W, along with the app IP CAM VIEWER (paid version), and it works great. I've got it set up on my iPad and iPhone and my wife has an app on her HTC ONE. App was like $5, and I picked up the camera on Amazon for $50 or so. I don't have it hooked up to view over the web, but for in house, probably can't find a better deal.

    Ive tried them all

    The FosCam isn't that great,quality especially at night isn't good

    I have found that the apps do not notify you on time and are not always 100% reliable

    Imho the dropcam hd is the best out of the bunch, still didnt keep it, as i need a panning option which it doesnt offer

    There is also the new ibaby monitor, which I'm going to try next

    All these solutions have a drawback, a significant delay, which is a problem. I want to be able to view my daughter live, not with a delay

    so i tried the ibaby

    the monitor is neat, but the app is absolute garbage, notifications are non existent

    i actually ordered the dropcam pro and am very satisfied with it, the quality is great, the field of view is terrific, and the app support seems to be top notch

    the notifications are not bad, i put it in the corner of my living room and it captures the room without a problem, and i can zoom in fine,..so far i think the drop cam is one of the best out there.
