Although this may not be strictly smartthings related, im looking to see if there is anyone with any experience in setting up some form of baby monitor system using wifi, smartthings, android, iphone etc etc…
We have two standard baby monitors with video, however their range is limited in our house - it is quite large, with many solid walls. The monitors will not work at rooms at the far end of the house, or in the garage (attached) etc, and there are times when we would ideally like to be getting on with jobs in those rooms, but cannot because we know the range on the standard baby monitors is limited.
We dont mind dedicating an ipad or some other tablet to achieve this, though lugging a laptop round may be a bit cumbersome.
We could rig up motion sensors so if they get out of bed, it triggers lights somewhere to come on or flash etc but thats only probably going to happen once they have been shouting out or crying and we couldn’t hear them.
Does anyone have any ideas on what could be used to achieve a long range baby monitor, any incorporation with zwave or smartthings, sonos etc would be a bonus.
