Looks greats, packaging is superb. But there are a few flaws at the moment. I will focus on the things that needs improving first.
No way to adjust motion or sound sensitivity, this is a huge minus as it’s either being flooded with notifications of noise and motion (even when the room is empty as it’s super sensitive) or no notifications because you turned it off.
Video stored is just simple photo time-lapses in low resolution. No 5 seconds proper video with sounds to see what is going on.
I question the whole 1080P claim, as it looks less than 720P to me, even on local wifi it’s all pixelated and blurry. Needs better picture/video quality.
Needs ability to adjust sound for speaking. Right now the sound for lullaby is LOUD, while talking through it is very low. Should be adjustable or at least opposite. You want lullaby low, and voice loud for calming effect when crying.
No multicast support, which means you can’t have two iphones looking the same feed.
No integration with HealthMate or www.withings.com as of yet, it’s all Withings Home app.
Infrared turning on “privacy mode” if there are reflections in the room. So make sure you move it far away from babycrib otherwise it will have issues with night-vision, and show you “Privacy mode on” and no picture/sound.
Bugs on iPhone and iPad apps, like time-lapse function does not save on iPad app.
These are issues I am suffering due to being early adaptor, much like with Withings Aura. But Withings are awesome, they are nailing bugs and issues, and I am sure most if not all of these issues will be resolved with time. I’ll update this review in a few months to see what has been improved.
