It will sound an alarm when no movement is detected for 20 seconds.

It also monitors sound, with a range of 820 feet, “and eight channels to minimize interference,” the company says. There’s also a temperature display, and indicator lights.

The full system is $170 here.
The motion-only version is $65 here.

 

 


Projector soothes baby in the crib

There are plenty of camera monitors that show you your baby in the crib — but what about showing your infant something interesting as well?

The Moonbeam will do just that: not only keep an eye on your child for you, but also display interesting images through its projector. “Now you can soothe and keep tabs on your sleeping baby from your mobile device,” the inventor says.

Moonbeam is bendable and covered in soft fabric, and wraps around the walls of the crib. It also has a speaker and infrared night vision.

It’s only a prototype now, but you can aid in its development here.

 

 


Monitor your baby with a touchscreen

You can view your baby from a 3.5-inch portable color display — and control the camera’s pan, scan, and zoom with the touchscreen.

Summer Infant says its set-up “ensures parents peace of mind, day and night.” The system also provides two-way audio communication so you can talk with your child through the touchscreen and camera with a 400-foot range, and “give comfort and reassurance, or gentle reminders from another room.”

There is also automatic black & white night vision “to clearly see baby in low-light and darkened rooms,” and sound-activated LED lights. The system can work with 3 optional additional cameras to keep an eye on all your children.

It’s $189 here.
