One of top 15 startups of the TechCrunch Beijing 2015 startup competition is Charmcam. Hong Kong based-Charmcam monitors babies for the post 80-90s young parents, not only visually but also smartly. It will be available on Indiegogo this month, according to the company. 

Charmcam monitors a baby, and alarms the parents when the baby’s head is covered. The thermal camera checks if the baby is in a normal body temperature with LWIR (Long Wavelength Infra Red) that can pick up temperature measurements from a distance. It also shows the current environment in the room including air quality and light in a dashboard. To top it off, it also has a lullaby function. 

Comparing the product with other with baby product giants, like Withings, 4moms, and Dropcam, founder and CEO Nick Lau said that hardware is not their only source of profit. The business is built off the integration between data and cloud storage with recommendations for baby products.
