Covid19 Hack for Hospitals: Using skype in Tablets (Android/ipads) as baby monitors (for remotely monitoring patients)?
Using Tablets (Android/ipads) as baby monitors (for remotely monitoring patients)?
I got this idea from a local hospital which requested folks to drop in their VIDEO baby monitors at the hospital, and the nurses would use them to monitor patients from far 
Then, I found this site  that shows how to convert an old tablet for use as a video baby monitor.
The idea is to use skype to do the connection and have a mobile to watch on the other end.
Wifi/bandwidth should not be much of a problem in hospital settings, but we would need to stretch this solution to be able to monitor multiple of these monitors/tables
The innovation we need to do is to somehow have a screen that will show multiple of these screens that can be monitored from a single place.
I posted in the skype forums  where the moderator asked to post here, as this feature does not come with free accounts - and this might need to be set up on the fly.
Skype should roll out a quick solution to protect medical professionals.
