Infant Optics’ Video Baby Monitor with night vision is a compact, wireless, durable system that let’s you keep an eye on your baby wherever you are at home.
To set up the system, just plug the adaptor into the camera and monitor, then turn them on.
The monitor has a range of up to 800 feet in open areas, and 150 feet through walls and ceilings. The night-vision V mode turns on automatically, and offers a clear digital black-and-white picture of baby. (Day vision is in color.)
A voice-activation standby mode saves power by shutting down if there’s no noise for three minutes. There’s also a white-noise mode that filters out extraneous sound. You can buy additional cameras for the system too; the monitor will work with up to four cameras at once.
The system can be purchased here.
There are lots of audio and video baby monitors out there now, but the Angelcare does quite a bit more: it tracks movement with sensor pads you place under your baby’s mattress.
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.
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.
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.
