Most Commonly Asked iBaby Monitor Questions Answered!

iBaby monitors are some of the most unique smart baby monitors. Our entire line, ranging from M6 to the M7, come equipped with safety features that help make monitoring effortless. And now that you own an iBaby or two, you’re probably wondering how to use it. So, we have compiled the most commonly asked questions and answered them to make your transition to an iBaby Monitor hassle-free.

What Does VOC Measure? (iBaby Care M7, iBaby Monitor M6S, iBaby Air, and iBaby AirSense)

VOCs—Volatile Organic Compounds—are chemical compounds made up of carbon and hydrogen. They become distinct by their ability to evaporate or survive to standard living conditions. The majority of VOCs are man-made and can come from products like paint, cigarette smoke, wood treatments or even dust.

Because of the sensors, iBaby monitors can detect the most common VOCs in the room. However, They do not detect dangerous substances like Carbon Monoxide.

Our iBaby Care app sends VOC alerts ranging from 1 to 4. When reading the air quality chart level 4 means the air in the room is in perfect condition. Level 3 means the room air quality is moderate, level 2 means the air quality could be reactive to sensitive groups. And Level one means that you need to open a window and let the room air out.

Many different things can trigger the sensors in the iBaby Monitor. Dust, aerosol sprays, and even nail varnish can trigger an alert.

How to save and delete videos and photos from the media and alerts sections?
Exporting your media is a great way to save your favorite pictures and videos. If you have an iOS device, tap on the media gallery located on the top right of the app. Then, tap on the image you would like to save and tap on the export button. Once you tap the icon, you will see the option to save to your phone or share on  social media.

On  Android devices, images and videos are saved to the local media gallery.

What are background notifications and notifications?
At iBaby, our highest priority is the safety of you and your family. And that’s why our monitors are equipped with smart alerts and sensors. You can change your alerts by heading into alert settings and modifying what notifications you’d like to receive. The iBaby Care app will then send you alerts or background notifications according to your selections.

Background notifications are alerts you will receive if the app is running in the background of your phone. Regular notifications are the alerts you will receive inside of the iBaby Care App, but will not show when you’re outside of the app.

How do I connect my iBaby Monitor with a 2.4 GHz or 5GHz connection?
Dual-band routers usually come in two frequencies 2.4 GHz or 5GHz. All iBaby Monitors, with the exception of the iBaby Care M7 and iBaby M6S, require installation on a 2.4 GHz frequency. So, if you do not use the proper internet connection, installation of your monitor will not complete. If you don’t have a dual internet connection, you will need to contact your internet provider to separate it

    Dears,

    I liked your iBaby camera, but i have one question:
    Can I use the camera with locale Wifi without internet?

    Many thanks

    • Keren Lopez March 19, 2018 at 9:44 am - Reply

      Hi Majed, our monitors will not function under local Wi-Fi. You will need to have access to your router in order for it function and set-up properly.

    I’m interested in the iBaby Care M7, but I am wondering about 2 way audio on my device. Will I have to constantly keep the app open in order to hear what’s happening in the baby’s room? Or will I get a notification when they make a noise? How does that work since there’s no separate monitor with the camera?

    • Keren Lopez March 21, 2018 at 2:18 pm - Reply

      Hi Beau, as long as you keep the iBaby Care app running in the background you will always be able to hear the audio from your baby’s monitor. You can also set up sound and movement notifications and you will get notifications straight to your phone when a loud sound or movement is detected. Our monitor’s are app-based, so they do not come with a separate pad and require the free download of the iBaby Care App. If you have anymore questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support team at support@ibabylabs.com or at (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PST). Thank you and have a great day.

        Great! Thank you for your prompt response and for answering my question. It will make my decision to purchase the M7 much easier!

      Hi Lyssa, thank you for considering our iBaby Monitors. You can definitely set up multiple monitors and easily toggle between them with the free iBaby Care app. Have a great rest of your day.

    Can both me and my husband have access to the same monitors in our house? We set them up separately. Thank you.

    • Keren Lopez April 2, 2018 at 9:36 am - Reply

      Hi Rew, you and your husband can definitely have access to the same monitor. One of you will simply need to be the primary owner of each monitor and then invite the other as an invited user. The primary owner is the person who has installed the monitor to their phone (You cannot install the monitor twice so there can only be one monitor owner).

      The account owner can then invite user by following these instructions:

      1. Go to the menu button on top left hand side of the iBaby Care app.

      2. Then select View & Invite Users.

      3.Now you can invite them by email as well as modify their access levels.

      If the user you are inviting has difficulty receiving the email, ask them to first download the iBaby Care app, create an account and give you the email address they used to register. Now follow the steps above.

      If you have anymore questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support team at support@ibabylabs.com or (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PST). Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

      Hi Monica,

      Thank you for your question. Our monitors do not detect mVOC’s. However, the iBaby Monitor M6S detects VOCs and the iBaby Care M7 detects TVOCs.

    Can the iBaby monitor be installed outside of the house?

    • Keren Lopez June 15, 2018 at 10:01 am - Reply

      Hi Gilligan,

      We do not recommend that you mount the iBaby outside your home since it’s meant to monitor your baby and not as a surveillance device. The monitor is not weather resistant and could be damaged if placed outside. Technically, though, it is possible for you to mount it outside your home as long as you have a power outlet, it’s safely protected from weather and your Wi-Fi connection reaches outside. But we do not recommend use outside of your home. If you have anymore questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support team at support@ibabylabs.com. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

      Hi Gentza,

      Due to safety concerns and for the safety of your baby, our iBaby monitors must always remain plugged in.

      Hi Joey, thank you for your question. Currently at the moment users do not have the ability to view the video in split screen mode. You will need to toggle between both monitors. But, if you do decide to set up alerts and notifications, each notification will be labeled with each individual monitors name.

        Hello Keren,
        Similar type of question regarding this topic of purchasing multiple monitors. I initially have M6T, can I purchase M6S model monitor and use in unison w/ my account? Meaning capable of toggling back forth between monitor feeds or will i be forced to have a separate acct since it’s upgraded model? Hope my question makes sense . Thanks in advance

        • Keren Lopez August 6, 2018 at 9:50 am - Reply

          Hi Jennifer,

          Thank you for your question! You can definitely install and use different iBaby monitors under the same iBaby account regardless of the model number. So that means you can totally get the M6S and install it with your iBaby account. Once you do install it, you can then toggle between the two monitors to see each individual video feed.

          If you have any other questions, please let me know and I’ll be glad to help. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    Can smoke from burnt food such as steak cause the air quality to go down ?

    • Keren Lopez July 3, 2018 at 9:16 am - Reply

      Hi Adam,

      Smoke from burnt food can definitely cause a fluctuation in the air making the monitor’s air quality detection levels go down. The monitor can detect a wide variety of VOCs including cigarette smoke, paint, and dust in the air.

      If you have anymore questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer support team at support@ibabylabs.com or at (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PST). Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    Hello! Two questions
    1. How do I retain a Wi-Fi set up— recently we went on vacation and had to set up with the vacation Wi-Fi and it meant our home wifi disappeared from our iBaby.
    2. How do we watch the monitor using our LTE network?
    Thank you

    • Keren Lopez July 6, 2018 at 9:31 am - Reply

      Hi Alex, every time you’re traveling with your iBaby Monitor you will have to follow the reset instructions in order for the monitor to pair up with a new Wi-Fi connection. You can do so by following these instructions:

      1.Open the app and tap the Menu button (upper left)
      
2.Select Settings

      3.Scroll down and tap the big pink “Delete iBaby” button

      4.Log out iBaby Care app

      5.Plug the camera into the wall socket

      6.Hold the black reset button (underneath the USB tab) for 30-60 seconds until you hear the iBaby ringtone.

      7. Re-install the monitor following the on-screen instructions

      But you must be aware that your iBaby monitor will not install using a hotel’s Wi-Fi (or any public Wi-Fi) due to firewalls and safety concerns. You can however install it using a portable hotspot.

      As for your second question, you can view your monitor away from home with your LTE data or any WI-Fi available as long as your monitor is connected to your in-home Wi-Fi.

      If you have anymore questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support team at support@ibabylabs.com or at (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PST).

      • Sean July 11, 2018 at 8:15 am - Reply

        Hi iBaby,

        In regard to Alex’s first question, of any functionality that should be on your enhancement list, this should be a top priority to make easier. I recently received and started using the M7 monitor and this is my only issue so far because otherwise I love it. I setup the monitor at my parent’s house and then took the monitor to my house, which caused me to have to set everything up again and all my settings were lost once I deleted and re-added the same monitor. I’d like to be able to take the monitor with us to my parent’s, brother’s, etc, and to have to do this delete-add process every time is going to be a major issue.

        Along with the above enhancement, localized Wi-Fi support would be tremendously helpful, especially in cases where there might not actually be Internet available, so the monitor can be used in a more traditional baby monitor way, or the user (me) just doesn’t want everything going out over the Internet and through the Cloud.

        Does iBaby already have plans to resolve these issues?

        Thank you for your consideration.

        • Keren Lopez July 11, 2018 at 10:42 am - Reply

          Hi Sean, thank you for your suggestions.

          We understand that it’s frustrating to reset the monitor every time you move it, but it’s the only way for the monitor to forget the previous Wi-Fi connection and pick up the new one. We always recommend that before a hard-reset, you save any media you have stored to your phone’s camera roll, since the monitor resets to factory settings.

          Unfortunately, due to security purposes, iBaby monitors are unable to connect on any internet that has authentication pages or additional login pages (for example, hotels, hospitals, airports, libraries, coffee shops, department stores) before accessing the internet. iBaby monitor’s will only work on Wi-Fi that you have direct access to a network’s router. And due to safety concerns and to prevent hackings, our monitors will not function using local Wi-Fi connections. However, the monitors can be installed and used with a portable hotspot.

          We do apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you. We will forward all of your great suggestions to our engineers and developers. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    I am my 99 yr old mother’s full time care giver. It was suggested by her hospice nurse, that we consider utilizing a “baby” monitor system to observe our mother’s movements in her apartment for the overnight hours. She has severe short term memory loss/dementia and it was suggested as a step (prior to getting 24 hr, round the clock aides). We are only looking for a one-way visual and audio connection that we then can monitor through an app. Which monitor would you suggest for our situation?

    • Keren Lopez July 10, 2018 at 9:50 am - Reply

      Hi Towanda,

      Our iBaby Monitor M6S is the perfect monitor for what you’re looking for. It comes fully equipped with full HD 1080p live video with night vision, two-way audio speakers (you can listen and hear), temperature/humidity alerts, motion and sound alerts, and a wide variety of songs. All our iBaby monitors work under the free iBaby Care App which you can use to see your mother remotely from anywhere by using your phone’s LTE data or any available Wi-Fi.

      But with all our monitors, you will need to have a functioning Wi-Fi connection at your mother’s home in order for the monitor to be installed and to function properly. If you have any other questions, or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support team at support@ibabylabs.com or at (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PST). They will be glad to answer any other questions you may have. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

      3. Delete the App

    My wife and I both want the ability to watch our baby. Is it possible for both a mother and a father to connect phones simultaneously? Maybe one could run in a survey mode while the other had control of movement. (Also, I have iOS and she has Android.)

    Seems to me that only allowing one connection is a huge oversight since it takes two people to have a baby.

    • Keren Lopez August 6, 2018 at 10:32 am - Reply

      Hi Connor,

      You and your wife can both definitely have access to view and use all of the features in your iBaby Monitor. Here is a bit of information on how you can do so.

      Our iBaby monitor is designed in a way that it can only have one camera owner. This means that the person who installs the monitor on their phone becomes the camera owner. The camera owner then has the ability of inviting others (Your wife) to view and access the video feed and all other features. All you have to do is invite your wife as an invited guest. You can do so by following these instructions:

      1. In order to add a new user, go to the menu button on top left hand side of the iBaby Care app.

      2. Then select View & Invite Users.

      Now you can invite your wife by using her email. If she has difficulty receiving the email, ask them to first download the iBaby Care app on her phone, create an account and give you the email address she used to register. Now follow the invitation steps above.

      ATTENTION: iBaby Care app and iBaby website are two different platforms. The account you used on iBaby website does not grant you a login access on the iBaby Care App. You need to create a new iBaby Care app account.

      If you have trouble inviting your wife, please reach out to our customer support at (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PST) or at support@ibabylabs.com. They will be more than glad to guide you through the steps. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    Hello I logged off from my Ibaby account and once I logged back in my photos and videos are not there how can I retrieve them ? Thank you

    • Keren Lopez August 17, 2018 at 11:03 am - Reply

      Hi Aisha,

      Thank you for reaching out. Signing out of your account should not delete any of your images and videos. This only occurs if you complete a hard reset of the monitor or if they were manually deleted. Once the images and videos are deleted there is no way to retrieve them.

    This is an awkward and real question. Can the ibaby monitor sense flatulence (farts)?

      Hi Jaimie,

      Thank you for asking this real and honest question. Indeed, the monitor can sense flatulence (poopy diapers, too) and will send an air quality alert if the scent is very noticeable.

      If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support at support@ibabylabs.com or at (650) 396-2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PST). Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    Hello!

    I am a caregiver for infants and toddler. I would like to set this camera up so the parents have access to see their children throughout the day. How does the ‘share your baby’s live video stream’ work? Ideally, it would be best if I can give access to the parents when they ask for it and the live stream end after a certain amount of time, instead of the parents being able to look whenever they want so we can still protect the other children’s privacy as well as the home after operating hours

      Hi Isabel,

      You can definitely set up the camera and invite unlimited users to access the monitor. This means that any parent you invite to the monitor can be given access to view, listen, speak, or play music. You, as the account owner, have the option to limit their access level to your discretion (Example, giving them access to view the monitor without having any control of the other features).

      As the owner, you then have ability to un-invite the viewers so they can no longer have access to the monitor. But if you don’t want to go through process of un-inviting the list of invited users and re-inviting them the next day, you can go to settings and turn on the privacy mode. The privacy mode prevents anyone, except the account owner, from viewing or accessing the monitor. And once the day begins again, you can turn off the privacy mode to give parents the access to the monitor once again.

      If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support team at support@ibabylabs.com or at (650) 396- 2436 (M-F 9-5 PM PST). They will be glad to answer any other concerns you may have. Thank you and have a great rest of your day!

    Hi there,

    I am very interested in getting an ibaby monitor but have a few questions first. What triggers the motion and sound notifications? Are all ibaby monitors sensitive to sound and motion? Does the app need to be open in the background or open on the phone screen to receive notifications of when there is movement and sound?

    Thank you

      Hi Jasmin, thank you for reaching out.

      The motion and sound notifications are triggered when the camera detects movement or loud noises such as the baby crying or a clap. All our iBaby Monitors are integrated with the sound and motions alerts. All you need to do is enable them through the settings. If you have push notifications enabled, you will not need to have the iBaby Care App open in order to receive the notifications. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support at support@ibabylabs.com. Thank you and have a great rest of your day!

    Hi the alerts are great, but is there a way to only get alerts so often. For example, if my baby is crying I would only want one alert every 3 to 5 minutes not every minute.

      Hi Casey, I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you.

      If you do not want as many alerts, we recommend putting the sensor at the lowest setting.

      If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to come back. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    When you have two cameras installed, can you have it so it automatically toggles between rooms? Or do you have the manually toggle to get to each room?

    • Keren Lopez December 19, 2018 at 5:05 pm - Reply

      Hi Cassy, Thank you for reaching out. You will need to manually toggle between each individual monitor in order to view the video feed. In the near future, we will be releasing an update that allows for the split screen feature. Keep an eye out on that.

      If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support at support@ibabylabs.com. Thank you and have a great rest of your day.

    Hi,
    I have a M6 camera, shall I leave the camera connected all the time? or it will goes to standby mode sometimes.

    • Keren Lopez December 28, 2018 at 9:52 am - Reply

      Hi Vahid, thank you for reaching out.
      The iBaby Monitor must remain plugged in at all times if you would like to have access to the live video feed. When you are not using the monitor, you can definitely unplug it or turn it off by going into the iBaby care App Menu > settings > Power Off. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us again. Thank you and have a great rest of your day. https://ibabylabs.com/wp-admin/edit-comments.php#comments-form
