Yuhan-Kimberly announced on Oct. 16 that it has launched a smart baby monitor that lets the mother know when her newborn poops and pees.
The new product, dubbed the MONIT X Huggies Smart Baby Monitor, is based on Internet of Things (IoT) technology.
Yuhan-Kimberly started Huggies IoT service at its shopping mall, dubbed momQ, this month, in collaboration with MONIT Corp., a Korean developer of smart baby monitors.
When you download the smartphone application, you can use an alarm service that lets the mother know whether the newborn has pooped or peed, monitor the air quality, adjust the brightness of the nursing lamp and analyze the frequency and pattern of pooping and peeing.
The IoT sensor can be easily attached to the outer surface of the diaper in a non-contact manner.
It tells the feces and urine accurately and in real time so that the diaper can be replaced at the right time.
It also monitors the air quality including the temperature, humidity and volatile organic compound, and provides an alarm when air quality is out of the pre-set range, enabling the babysitter to maintain proper air quality for child care.
Up to 5 people can be registered as guardians.
Yuhan-Kimberly said, "Smart baby monitors are the result of innovations that provides convenience to mothers and babysitters and comfort to babies."
