Baby Safety Month: Miku Celebrates Safety by Design

At Miku, our mission is to empower parents and caregivers with higher awareness of their baby’s wellness and safety. That’s why we decided to take a deep dive into the safety features of the Miku Smart Baby Monitor for Baby Safety Month!

From easy, baby-safe installation to the live breathing waveform on your smartphone, and even the ability to show Miku analytics to your doctor to make more informed decisions…. We want you to know that the Miku Smart Baby Monitor has your back. Our team works every day to ensure that Miku is the safest, most trusted monitoring system on the market. This is safety by design.

Baby-Safe Installation

As you install your Miku Smart Baby Monitor, every element is designed to keep the environment around your baby safe, including conduits that keep little hands away from cords and a locking baseplate that keeps the monitor stable and fastened to the wall. Unless you have a superhuman on your hands, even the most curious little ones will struggle to wiggle their tiny fingers under secure cable guides or achieve the 50+ pounds of pressure needed to release the Miku baseplate.

Real-Time Breathing

For true peace of mind, monitor your little one’s breathing on the Miku App where you can track their respirations per minute (RPM) and see their breathing waveform in real time. According to substantiated medical research, respiratory rate can be one of the earliest indicators of illness.

This is all possible with Miku’s proprietary SensorFusion technology, which uses radar, motion, and audio sensing and image and video processing combined with AI to capture and analyze breathing patterns. SensorFusion is named for how it combines multiple sensor modalities, each one supporting and validating the others as opposed to using just one modality. And our algorithm has been developed from a robust set of captured data: 15 billion breaths and counting! SensorFusion has also been validated in a 5,000 hour IRB-approved study, and we published the results in a Miku White Paper.

True Contact-Free Monitoring

One of the many benefits of Miku’s SensorFusion technology is that it is contact-free, eliminating the need for wires or wearables that require washing, securing, charging, or replacing. Plus, Miku works for any age! Contact-free monitoring also eliminates the risk of any potential uncomfortable marks or irritation that can be caused by wearable devices and gives littles ones the space and freedom they need.

See Beyond

Because SensorFusion uses multiple sensor modalities, your ability to monitor your little one’s breathing is unconditional. Your Miku Smart Baby Monitor can see breathing in a much wider range of conditions from light glares to total darkness, under a thick swaddle, and in any body position or location in the crib. And for sleepy parents, the Miku app now offers dark mode for easy reading, visibility in low-light conditions, and battery saving perks.

Local Processing

Our Qualcomm quad-core processor is the cherry on top. Miku’s local processor analyzes breathing data and delivers real-time alerts to a parent’s smart device, eliminating the need for cloud processing. These alerts are customizable to notify parents or caregivers of a range of events from movement to audio and sleep alerts. Your Miku can even continuously monitor and capture data with or without an internet connection.

Safe and Secure Technology

Last but certainly not least, Miku is built with tamper-resistant Crypto Chip technology that is completely unique to this Smart Baby Monitor. This technology takes your security to the next level by protecting your data on your device. Combined with 256-bit encryption, 2-factor authentication, and the ability to share access with grandparents or babysitters, Miku makes sure your data is secure.

It’s safe to say that the Miku Team takes your family’s safety and security very seriously. At every step of the design – and believe us it was a lot of steps – we kept safety top of mind!
