Edited by Leomar Umpad, Eng, Nuance
Samsung's most powerful for 2014 has arrived! Samsung Galaxy S5 is packed with one of the most powerful processor, camera and health features.
Samsung recognizes the fact that we are living in a very busy world. There are things we need to do to maximize our time. You are at home with your baby - and you want to do some chores while your child is asleep. Samsung Galaxy S5 has a feature to help you monitor your baby, and hear if he/she is crying or in distress. Not intended as a medical device or as substitute for proper care-giving, this feature helps people know if a baby is in need of attention and care by sending a notification to your Galaxy Gear that your child is crying.
Pre-Requisites Before Enabling Baby Crying Detector
Before enabling the baby-crying detector, you need to comply to these requirements:
- 1You need to have a Galaxy Gear on you to make use of the feature baby-crying detector. Samsung Galaxy S5 will detect any noise from your baby and if it reaches a point where the noise is more of the crying type, your phone will then send a vibrating alert to your Galaxy Gear notifying you your baby's crying.Advertisement
