Baby Monitor

A battery powered room audio monitor

One of the problems with commonly available baby monitors is that the transmitter end of the baby monitor system is usually either battery powered or uses the mains. As most parents would know, it is sometimes difficult to ensure that the battery is in good condition and also if it uses the mains, then there would be a need for a power point. Having minimal electrical equipment in a baby's room is recommended. The idea is basically to redevelop a battery powered baby monitor (or room audio monitor) that can last for years whilst being able to operate wirelessly. Using the ZigBee (802.15.4) low powered short range wireless capability, this may be a good option.
