Baby monitors are so old school now. You have smart cameras that are tailored for baby monitoring, and if you don't want to buy new gear you can use your phone that's several times more powerful than the regular speaker/microphone combo of a baby monitor. Apps that let you do this are all over the Play Store, but one of the best ones is now discounted to 10 cents. If you have a baby/toddler or you might soon have one, this deal is for you.
Baby Monitor 3G uses two devices (phones, tablets, desktop computers) connected over WiFi, 3G, or LTE, one as a baby station and the other as a parent station. Read More

If you've got a late-model Samsung "smart" camera, you should check out this nifty function. Samsung Home Monitor lets owners of the upcoming NX3000 camera (and presumably other models in the NX line) view video from the camera's lens remotely on their phones. It's a neat application of the hardware available.
Using the simple app, you can treat your camera like a security camera or baby/pet monitor. Users can stream live video from the camera at any time, as long as there's Wi-Fi in the house and your smartphone has a data connect (Wi-Fi or mobile). In an impressive display of practical design, the camera can also be activated by sound or motion, alerting the smartphone app via a notification. Read More
