Baby monitors serve an important purpose. All parents need time to make dinner, do chores, work, and other things that you can’t do from beside the crib. Baby monitors used to be glorified, chew-proof walkie talkies, but technology has taken them a long way.

Invidyo brings a range of enhancements to the baby monitor, most notably facial recognition. So it can send alerts when it sees a familiar face, or an unfamiliar one. It also detects smiles, so you can choose to get a 2 minute highlight reel of the day’s giggles. Notifications also come when there’s noise, motion, unexpected temperature changes, unsafe humidity levels, air quality, or when it detects smoke. The whole thing runs through an app on your phone, so you can also make visual or auditory checks from the other room, including with night vision when the lights are out.
