Waiblingen, Germany (PressExposure) May 26, 2009 -- In the origin this application was built for the iPhone and sold since mid of March 2009 over the iTunes App Store from Apple Inc. Due to the great sales Bluefields BVBA decided to built the application also for the Google Android-powered G1 and make it so available to much more users. As the Android platform is more open than the iPhone platform more user requested features will be built in.
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
- Two-Way-Communication: possibility also to talk to the baby over the loudspeaker of the T-Mobile G1. So the parents can calm the child until they are back. - Call-In-Function: starting the call from the configured phone number and listen actively into the baby's room. - 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 iTunes App Store from Apple Inc. for 4,99 USD. In the Android Market: http://www.android.com/market/ BabyPhone Deluxe will be available beginning of July 2009.
