In an era of smart products, it was only a matter of time until a smart diaper system landed in the parenting space. Lumi, from Pampers, touts itself as the “world’s first all-in-one connected care system that’s revolutionizing baby monitoring by helping parents monitor and track their baby 24/7,” according to its website.

Pampers partnered with Verily and Logitech to combine a video monitor with an activity sensor to help parents blend real-time date with their own natural intuition. Through the Lumi by Pampers app, parents have access to insights tailored to their child. The Lumi by Pampers line, which has a wait list ahead of its US launch this fall, includes an activity sensor that secures to the front of a baby’s diaper. It comes with a baby monitor and a 10-day supply of diapers, according to CNN. The sensor works with the app to log a child’s wet diapers—but only urine, and not poop— to identify any patterns that are present. Additional packs of Lumi by Pamper diapers will also be sold separately. See it in action below:

Parents can breathe a little easier knowing Lumi is constantly checking on baby. The app displays one of three diaper statuses: Dry, Wet and the dreaded Very Wet. In addition to sharing wet diaper status, it will also help parents track baby’s feeding and sleep routines, as well as share key milestones. The account information within the app will include baby’s name, sex, date of birth and a 24-hour archive of video from the monitor, a Pampers spokesperson tells CNN.

The official pricing for Lumi hasn’t been announced yet, and upon its launch, the system will only be available in the US.
