South Korean company Yuhan-Kimberly has released a baby monitor which lets parents or caregivers know when baby needs fresh nappies.
The new Monit & Haggis Smart Baby Monitor applies IoT technology to monitor baby diapers and other functions that assist childcare, reports Kevin Lee from Korea Bizwire.
Yuhan-Kimberly, in collaboration with Monit, a developer of smart baby monitors, launched the Haggis IoT Service on MomQ, Yuhan-Kimberly’s online store, allowing customers to download a mobile application that works alongside baby monitors. It includes functions like an alarm that detects soiled diapers, an air quality monitor, a breast-feeding lamp, and tools that can analyse the frequency and pattern of baby’s bowel movements.
The sensors can easily be attached to diapers without touching or irritating baby skin.
They detect the types and patterns of soiled diapers with precision, helping parents know in real-time when they should change diapers. This helps prevent rash and minimises stress for the baby.
Also, the sensor provides monitoring on the appropriate temperature and humidity, sending an alarm to parents if air quality deviates from a certain threshold.
“Our smart baby monitor uses cutting-edge information technology to provide comfort to the baby as well as convenience to parents,” said an associate at Yuhan-Kimberly.
