If you are worried about what's going on in your little one's bedroom while your baby is asleep and you're off doing all the tasks that new parents need to perform, then GrannyAnn Baby Sleep Monitor & Alarm is an app that you should consider downloading on your iPhone or iPad.
This app boasts a highly minimalist interface, which is designed to be very easy to use, allowing you to listen in on what's going on with your little one and receive notifications if abnormal noise levels are detected.
GrannyAnn Baby Sleep Monitor only takes up 1.2 MB of space on your iOS device and makes for a fantastic addition to the Lifestyle section of the App Store. It is available for just 99 cents, which is the standard pricing for an app that has no ads.
All you have to do is purchase this app, set it up on two iOS devices, and ensure that they're both connected to the same WiFi network; then you'll be good to go! This app has full background capabilities so that even if you happen to be talking on the phone, using other apps, or watching videos, you'll still be able to receive notifications.
There are three modes available on this app, namely Monitor mode, Alarm mode, and Background mode. The former brings you a live stream from your baby's room that is captured from the other iOS device. Background mode allows you to listen to your baby but save battery as well as use other apps or take calls while you monitor the little on.
Alarm mode is great because it means you can put away your iPhone or iPad and receive a notification with one of the in-built alarm sounds if there are abnormal noise levels. Alternatively, you can also choose to receive a vibrating alert rather than an audio alert in case you have the device in your pocket.
Despite its simplicity, if you still feel a little overwhelmed when you first start using this app, don't worry: there is a quick start tutorial built into it so that you can navigate your way through this app and start using it immediately!
