    Default Using an old Iphone 4 as a Baby Monitor for remote viewing

    Hi all,

    Hopefully someone can help.

    I just had my first child and I have an old unused Iphone 4.

    I want to set it up so my mom who lives in France and has an Ipad and an Iphone can watch him while he sleeps.

    Someone suggested using facetime but it is not practical in my situation.

    I have seen a lot of baby cam apps but none of them have the remote viewing i'm looking for.

    Anyone knows?

    Perhaps you could just purchase a webcam and use a cam service over wifi to accomplish what your going for. I know that doesn't answer your question but maybe you could somehow use a webcam program and somehow get the computer to identify your iPhone 4 as a webcam.

    Im sorry I couldn't be of any real help but I don't own an iPhone nor will I ever. The restrictions that come with Apple interfere with what I want from my devices.

    Goodluck!!

    Dropcam should work.

    Your mom lives in France and will watch him sleep? Are you in the US?

    I would just get a network cam and stream the feed on Internet then your mom can use a app and watch the feed whenever
