Things we loved
There are many features that make this unit a preferred choice for most parents. However, I would say it is user friendly, multi-camera expandability, and it allows for long transmission range of about 900 plus feet. Also, the safety feature of this unit ensures that your kid is safe at all time away from hackers who may want to access your home without permission.
Things we didn’t like
Even the best unit in the world would not lack some defect. The wireless connection does not work for this system.
Most Recommended for:
-Those who often forgets to plug in their electronics
-Parents whose kids uses cribs or bassinets
-Anyone who is considering buying a monitor that is much affordable and has limited functionality.
It might not work for the following people:
-A user who intends to use it to attain wide visibility range and be able to always move the camera around
-A user with units that are between many walls
It is always problematic if a user is not able to control camera together with monitor unit as the range might be limited but if as a user these may not be a big issue then be sure that it is a camera with high quality and is more affordable with features that always makes it a good option to buy.

Baby monitors have overtime evolved from just being simple walkie-talkies. This article will help you understand different monitors available in the market with prices that are friendly with features.
☑ Type of the monitor
Baby monitors have greatly evolved from audio to video to motion detector devices. They are always good choice since it gives you peace of mind. The types of monitors discussed here include audio, sensors and video with audio devices.
This is always used in monitoring your baby’s movement, his level of oxygen, the rate at which his heart beats and room temperature. Models such as Infant Optics DXR-8 has its temperature sensor built inside it but other models like Owlet sock has been designed to track your baby’s heart rate with oxygen level specifically.
This only transmits sound your child makes, how he breathes as well as enable you eavesdrop on post-nap chat therefore enabling you to attend to the baby whenever need be.
☑ Video and audio
With such kind of a camera that transmits both sound and image then you will be able to supervise your baby at all times even when at different room. This always makes it a good option to purchase as compared to others.
☑ Wifi vs Radio
Depending on the model, some monitors often uses radio frequency with others using wi-fi network while others always uses both the radio and wi-fi network. When buying one, always go for one that best matches your lifestyle.
These are always convenient especially if you are a parent who travels a lot. The only thing required for it to function is by having internet connection that is more secure and Bluetooth device that is compatible such as your computer or phone. You must however be concerned with how you will be able to monitor the baby incase wi-fi is interrupted.
Static often occurs when using radio monitors and to avoid interference of sound then make sure that cordless devices in your house are switched off or are not using the same frequency as that of the monitor. Check the back of the cordless devices for the frequency it operates at to enable you select one with a frequency that will work best without being interfered.
Some monitors often have their ranges limited hence you can lose contact with the child if you go far from the house or yard.
They may come in form of chime, monitor buzz or even lighting up. The best thing with monitors is that is has backup alert system when operating at low battery mode.
☑ Source of power
For monitors that uses either batteries or Ac adapter charging it properly is always recommended just in case a blackout occurs.
☑ An adapter that is hands free
This makes it easier to carry it with you whenever you are moving around the house. This enables you to do other chores at the same time keeping an eye on the baby.
☑ Night vision and light
The night vision will enable you to check on your baby when dark while the night light often provides comfort to the baby when upset and helps them fall asleep faster.
☑ A Two-way audio
If your baby usually wakes up at night and starts to cry this is a great choice for you since you can talk to the baby hence calming him down before going into his room. This is best if your child is always inconsolable.
Some monitors enables you record lullabies or can come with songs recorded on them thus helping in soothing your child whenever upset or help him fall asleep more easily.
