Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 6, 2010
Ugo and Funmi Nwokolo were well-prepared for the arrival of their second daughter, Kosi. Since their two-year-old still had dominion over the nursery, the career couple had set up a basinet in their bedroom to accommodate the new baby. They also made plans for their respective mothers to help with childcare for a while after Funmi’s family leave was through. She will return to her teaching job a few weeks after welcoming Kosi into their home – but with the help of iBabyVideo, a new Web-based baby video monitoring service, she is able to check in on her infant daughter any time.
“Our moms are going to take turns, and each one will stay with us for a month to help take care of the baby,” says Funmi, who originally hails from Nigeria. She adds, “Obviously, I trust both of them to do a great job – but, I still hate to be away from my girls during the day. Now I love the ability to log into the iBabyVideo website from my office computer or my iPod Touch and see Kosi in her crib while I’m at work.”
iBabyVideo is a subscription-based service that lets parents create an account that is linked to their nursery webcam. By logging into the website at http://www.iBabyVideo.com, users can broadcast a live video feed from their baby’s nursery, which they can then view from any other computer, iPhone or iPad. (The Android app is coming soon.) Parents can also invite other family members to subscribe to viewer accounts and give them access to see the live video from the nursery.
“The video is encrypted, so nobody else can access the feed without the parent accountholder’s permission,” explains Craig Thompson, president of GWHQ Productions, LLC, the Dallas-based company behind the new service. “Parents can also set motion and audio detection levels, so that whenever their baby moves or makes a noise beyond a certain threshold, they will receive a push notification on their mobile device,” he adds.
New parents often spend upwards of $150 on home audio and video baby monitors, and many complain that they can’t get a clear signal, are limited to only one receiver, or experience interference. With iBabyVideo, users not only see live, high-definition video, but they can also see what’s happening in the nursery wherever they are, whether in the other room or across the country.
A subscription to iBabyVideo is normally $19.95/month for a parent account, which includes one viewer account. To introduce the service, iBabyVideo is offering a special subscription rate of $9.95/month for users who sign up for a parent account by September 30, 2010. Additional viewer accounts, normally $9.95/month, are offered at $7.95/month and require access permission from the parent accountholder to view the video feed. The iPhone and iPad mobile applications can be downloaded for free in the app store on iTunes.
