yes, for regular surveillance its fine to allow the monitor phone to go to sleep and rely on the motion messages. For a baby monitor, those sound/motion messages are hard to calibrate perfectly, so you end up leaving the app open and streaming all the time. Its a lot easier to here a baby's cry in the middle of the night and know if you need to get up than to open up the app, play the recorded clip, and then decide what to do.

I love my IP surveillance cams and have played around with using old phones as cameras. The only part I took issue with is in the subject line where you suggested using them for baby monitors. My experience has been they don't work well for that, so I wanted to warn anyone else that might be considering them for that use.
