I bought the SmartBeat about a year ago. It is definitely not your parents' baby cam. The video alone makes it worthwhile, but add the breathing monitoring and all but the most neurotic parent will get a good night's sleep. The iOS app allows for remote monitoring and talkback too. The only caution is that SmartBeat is not for luddites, but any 12 year old will be able to set it up in a jiffy. One thing that really impressed me was the direct contact I received from the company leadership and the direct feedback which has manifested in a series of improvements. Not only is the product good, the company is too and they deserve your support.
