M6 General Usage
iBaby monitors are smart baby monitors designed to work with your smartphones and iPads so you can see and hear your baby anytime, anywhere using your internet connection. From our free iBaby View or iBaby Care apps, you can set up sound and motion alerts, zoom, and record photos and videos. Not only will you see every precious moment, you can share them as well! The iBaby Monitor M6 is the most basic model, the iBaby Monitor M6T is the middle tier model, and the iBaby Monitor M6S is the most advanced model.

Yes. The power adapter is designed for standard outlets with 110v or 220v.
There is a quick fix to this. Open Media Player, and play any song. While the song is being played, turn up the volume. This will reset the speaker volume. Wait 10 seconds then click ‘Speak.’ The volume should be back to normal.
Static sound can appear for two reasons: either there is a network connectivity issue when the Wi-FI signal is too low, or there is interference from other devices, such as a TV, radio, etc. This issue will usually disappear if you reset the video monitor. To do that, delete the camera from the app, reset the monitor and add the camera again. Remember to do this as close to the router as you can, even if you are going to move the monitor to another room.
The echoing sound appears when the baby monitor is in close proximity to the functioning iBaby Care app – ie your smartphone or tablet. When you place the mobile device further away from the monitor, the echo will disappear. The issue can also appear if you press the ‘Listen’ and ‘Speak’ buttons at the same time, so avoid pressing those simultaneously.
Please make sure if you are using a dual band router, that the broadcast is set to 2.4Ghz if you have a the iBaby Monitor M6 or M6T. These monitors can only support 2.4Ghz and are not compatible with 5.0Ghz broadcast. However, if you have the iBaby Monitor M6S, iBaby Air, or AirSense, you will be able to use both 2.4Ghz and 5.0Ghz.
Please make sure that your Wi-Fi name and password are no more than 16 characters long, and both contain ONLY numbers and letters.
If you have models M2, M6, M6T, M6S, and M2 Pro, you will simply need to go into your app settings and delete the old camera. Log out of the app, and reset your phone and iBaby monitor. Then, proceed with installation again. If you have models M3 or M3S, you would need to complete the Port Forwarding. Please refer to www.portforward.com for more information or contact our Support Team for assistance.
For these models, please make sure the pins on the bottom of the monitor align exactly with the base of the monitor then log out from the app. Afterwards, log back in and give it a moment to load. If you run into issues, please contact our Support Team.
Please note only 1 person can be the Account Owner for each monitor. All other users are Invited Users/Viewers.
Note also that each user will need to register & create their own accounts. In order to invite additional users/viewers, send an invite through the app. There will be no confirmation e-mail, rather the user will be able to log into their account and load the video feed.
When other items share the same Wi-Fi connection, this can cause the signal strength to decrease when running or using the iBaby Monitor. For this, we recommend performing a Speed Test to determine your internet connection speed. One way to do a Speed Test is by downloading the OOKLA app from the App or Play Store and choose Begin Test. Your upload speed is the main factor of your video quality. The upload speed needs to be at least 2.4mbps to establish a video speed, anything lower than this will cause the issues described above.
Darker rooms will cause the video display to show in black & white. If this is not the case, check your display settings for Night Vision and make sure it is set to AUTO, which should restore the color.
Normally, with this option we usually see this occur if a firmware update is unsuccessful. If you come across this event during your installation process or you just happened to notice this change, please contact our Support Team for further assistance.
