Over a year after its debut at the 2011 International CES, Withings has announced that it is now shipping its Smart Baby Monitor for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch in the U.S. The Smart Baby Monitor is outfitted with a three megapixel camera featuring an extra wide view lens, night vision with infrared LEDs, and a 4x zoom, a two-way microphone, a motion detector, a thermometer, and a humidistat. Using either a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or Ethernet connection, the monitor allows parents to monitor and talk to the child, control playback of lullabies, and be alerted via alarms triggered by activity, audio levels, and temperature/humidity, either locally or over the Internet. Withings’ Smart Baby Monitor for iOS is available now and sells for $300.

I can’t believe the audacity this company has to charge the price they do. $299. Outrageous. Other baby monitors (highly rated mind you) ship for $80 less and have two electronic components.

This device is a singular device that requires the consumer to own the other part (i.e.: iOS device) so their price point really should be around the $160 mark.

EPIC FAIL if you ask me. I have waited patiently for this product for a year and then when it comes available they try to mark it up that high. They lost me as a customer.

$299 is way to much.  Only 3MP camera?  woow,... Like #1 said, $160 man. would be fair because you can get a $100 wireless night vision/ motion camera with audio from someone else.
