They're marketing that as a baby monitor? Who's gonna be the first moron to leave their baby at home while they go out and "monitor" their baby from a night club or something. Using it as a monitor when you are home with the baby just seems overly complicated and stupid. Just walk in the room and have a peek. Duh. I can also see people using these for stalking and spying quite easily. Very creepy.
Having said (typed?) all of that, I think it's pretty cool. Would be great for keeping an eye on things while you are away, but how would you get there in time if you spot something wrong? I mean, if you're close enough, you don't need the camera...
I'd use it for communicating with the family when I'm out of town.
LOL, I know you were kidding but no its not meant for you to leave your kids at home, it for a working parent to peek in on their kids while either the other spouse or baby sitter / nanny is taking care of the baby. For me, I am often out of ear shot of her bedroom. We have a large house and if I am downstairs out in the garage while she is upstairs I her room watching Busy town or Mickey Mouse Club, I have my cell phone in my pocket or on my desk, and I can not only hear what she is up to, but I can see it as well. Lets say she is doing something really cute and one parent has just got to share it with the other parent, they can call them and have them quickly log in and take a peak and watch it live or record the stream and watch it later. The camera also has infrared (hope I spelled that right) night vision, so even in a pitch black room I can see here at night, heck its good enough that I can even see how much of her bottle she finished off before she went to sleep.

Only catch, you MUST own either an Android or I-Phone to set it up. There is no direct setup from a PC or Laptop. (not even a USB port on the camera) You have to load their application to the phone and be standing next to the camera, while on your home WiFi connection. It then locks the camera to your network. When you want to view the camera in a browser you don't punch in your IP, you punch in their website enter your username and password then it connects you. However when viewed locally the app connects directly to your WiFi and then direct to the camera, so no internet is needed.
