WeMo Baby – The iPhone Baby Monitor


Belkin has made parenting a little more convenient with the new WeMo Baby iPhone Baby Monitor that turns your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch into a baby monitor. Setting up the WeMo Baby is very easy – after putting the monitor in the baby’s room, parents can download the free application on their iOS device and simply connect to their Wi-Fi network. The application offers helpful alerts about the baby’s status, and an upgrade is available through Evoz that allows parents to receive notifications when their baby begins to cry. Upgrading also enables parents to see their baby’s crying patterns, which can be very helpful in planning the baby’s sleep schedule. Compatible with all iOS mobile products, this product can be purchased at select retailers for $89.99.

Universal Design (UD) is an approach to design that increases the potential for developing a better quality of life for a wide range of individuals. It is a design process that enables and empowers a diverse population by improving human performance, health and wellness, and social participation (Steinfeld and Maisel, 2012). It creates products, systems, and environments to be as usable as possible by as many people as possible regardless of age, ability or situation.
