Intelligent monitoring is the future of mainstream automation and networking technology. This study presents an infant care system involving a variety of sensors that detect the status of an infant’s cradle, transmitting the data to a home server over Wi-Fi through a wireless transmission module and establishing a database. Users can interact with the system from a home based remote server, which stores the statuses and information on all monitored appliances. This enables them to remotely monitor and control the smart cradle, even from mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. Thus, this intelligent infant monitoring system affords users both functionality and convenience.
