The way I read their FAQ is that using the device and software on a home network is free. However, if you go over the internet you only get 15 minutes of free monitoring, after that you pay for 100 minute blocks.

I have read that the remote audio/video streaming is free for 15 minutes a day. What happens after?

The Smart Baby Monitor allows you to monitor your baby everywhere with an unlimited range and for an unlimited time. When you are outisde of home Wi-Fi network, audio/video streaming is free for 15 minutes a day.

What happens after?

You can always monitor your baby using the alerts. On top of that, you can see pictures of your baby, updated regularly. Soon, we?ll propose services upgrades so that you can buy 100 minutes of audio/video streaming for 4.99 euros (in-app purchase by Apple).

That is the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard today. Hope that fails big time. Bad enough carriers are artificially creating bandwidth segment. Now someone want to artificially create connectivity segments? NO.

What in God’s name are you doing out and about where the baby is at home alone and you’d have to check on him using such a service/device?  Child neglect, anyone?

Perhaps the dad would like to check-in on the baby and mom while he’s at work??  Or the grandparents would like to see the baby remotely?  That’s kind of the point of an IP video monitor.  If you’re confined to using it in your home, you might as well get a standard video monitor with a standalone screen and not have to tie up your iphone or ipad…
