Stacey Gleeson, in Cairns, Australia, noticed her daughter was turning blue as she looked on through a video monitor. While rushing to her baby, Gleeson dropped her iPhone 6S but called out “Hey Siri” to remote-dial an emergency ambulance.
Typically, shouting out “Hey Siri” at your iPhone (iOS 8 and later) before adding “Call 995” or “Call the police” should work. If you are tempted to try it out, note that you will have five seconds to cancel the call before it goes through. Calling up other applications aren’t as easy, Siri will still require you to enter your passcodes if activated.
But if you’re worried — not just about horrific stories like Gleeson’s — and want to keep an eye on bubba in general, consider splurging for a video monitor. Even long after bubba grows up, some of these video monitors can also serve as CCTV cameras as all of them are functional both in the night and day.
