Nowadays, one of the most significant challenges that faces many families is baby care. Parents cannot continuously observe or monitor their babies all the time. Baby monitors help in reassuring millions of parents that their children are safe. Many of baby monitors are available; however, we find that many of them do not fulfil the desired requirements. The aim of this paper is to produce a baby monitor system, which we called smart infant monitoring system that provides high-quality features. The idea is to design a system that will simplify the process of monitoring the baby by using Raspberry Pi device. The proposed system will have many features such as: displaying live video and audio, recording audio and playing it to the baby, measuring the room temperature and humidity, supporting Arabic language, determine if the baby is awake or sleep, and the most important characteristic is the ability to listen to the baby noise, which is the cry detection feature. Finally, the proposed system is tested and compared with the current system and proved its effectiveness and functionality.
