BabyPhone Deluxe: new baby monitor app for the iPhone or Android G1
End of June the new software BabyPhone Deluxe from Bluefields BVBA will be available also for the T-Mobile G1. BabyPhone Deluxe enables you to use your mobile as a baby monitor, that you have always with you.

Roeland Hofkens, the founder of Bluefields, and his wife had the idea of building a baby monitor application for the iPhone, while traveling with their 1, 5 year old daughter. Both baby monitoring devices they had with them did not work. The walkie-talkie device did not reach the distance it promised and the DECT phone with a baby monitor function did not to connect to the phone system of the hotel. BabyPhone Deluxe can be used worldwide wherever there is a mobile network connection and regardless the distance.
BabyPhone Deluxe works similar like a standard baby monitor: just switch on the application and place your iPhone / G1 in a distance of 2 to 3 meters to your sleeping baby. The mobile will call the configurable phone number when a sound exceeds an adjustable level. So it is possible to hear everything that is going on in the child's room.
A lot of value is put on an intuitive user interface and an accurate operability. For example it still works properly on if there is a call, sms or calendar event coming in. The iPhone / G1 will fall into a battery saving mode after 3 minutes, so that a new battery lasts at least for 10 hours. It is possible to configure a call delay. This means the application will call the configured phone number only if the sound level exceeds the threshold for 1,2,3,4 ... seconds. This prevents 'false positives': you won't be called when the baby coughs or turns around, only when it really needs you.
On top there is a BabyRecorder that records the sounds of your baby during the night, switching on and off automatically. These recordings can be used for the family records or even to show the doctor how hard and often the baby coughed in the night.
The new features on the Android-platform will be
- Blocking of incoming calls: as the iPhone has to be put on silent, so that the child does not get awake if there is a incoming call, these calls will be automatically blocked.
BabyPhone Deluxe is available on the app store for 4,99 USD using this link: http://itunes.apple.com/
