Baby monitors come in a variety of styles that will fit the needs of different families depending on the age of children, the size of the house and several other factors you will want to consider before making a purchase. You may even find you need more than one, especially if you have more children in the future. A baby monitor is truly a technology that has made parenting easier.
Infant Optics Video Baby Monitor is a top-selling monitor for several good reasons. The interchangeable lens technology allows you to try out different views and angles to make sure you have the best view of your child. If you use a video monitor with a static view, there will be times when you would leave the baby’s room only to find the camera was not pointed at her or she had moved and was no longer in view. This made the video portion of the monitor basically useless unless you wanted to go back in and move it in the dark. The battery life on this baby monitor is also impressive. Although this is an expensive purchase, with these features it is well worth it.
VTech Safe and Sound Audio Baby Monitor is perfect for parents that need a simple inexpensive baby monitor. This monitor has excellent range and a belt clip for mom or dad. This allows you to freely move about the house with the parent unit. The sound quality of this particular monitor is great with very little static—so you won't constantly be reminded of the monitor's presence!
Palermo HD Wi-Fi IP Surveillance Camera for Baby is for moms and dads who want a baby monitor that connects to their smartphone or other Wi-Fi enabled devices. The camera itself can be moved remotely to find the perfect angle for viewing your sleeping child. Taking still shots with this camera is another fun feature. You can use it to capture precious moments of your sleeping child.
Angelcare Video, Movement, and Sound Monitor combines the features of several different types of baby monitors into one product. If you’re considering a movement monitor for your child’s sleep space, combining it with your audio and video baby monitor is a good way to save money. It will also reduce the number of electronics and cords in your nursery. The Angelcare under-the-mattress movement sensor pad has adjustable sensitivity to customize for your baby’s sleep situation. However, you do have to put up with the occasional false alarm. Video quality on this baby monitor is impressive, especially the night vision when compared to other monitors. If you’re looking for an all-in-one monitor, this is a great purchase to make.
Motorola Video Baby Monitor with Two Cameras is ideal for parents with more than one child to monitor. Many baby monitors have the option to purchase an additional camera later but it is sometimes at great expense—or if a few years go by between your initial purchase and the addition of a second child, you may find they no longer make units for your monitor. How much simpler it is to have a two camera monitor with a split screen for monitoring multiple rooms. Two-way audio and great video quality are also useful features of this monitor.
