motorola mbp36 wireless video baby monitor picThis site will take a look at some of the top selling baby monitors on the market while also learning more about what consumers had to say regarding each model’s performance, pricing and features. Consumers have rated each model on a scale of one to five stars, with the ratings based on price, ease of use and setup, features, range capabilities and performance.

The ability to visually check on your infant by using a video baby monitor is a great asset and it provides relief from anxiety in a number of cases. Using a video baby monitor can also save you from having to get out of bed altogether. Once you have used a video monitor you’ll find yourself hooked on how easy and relieving it is to be able to keep an eye on your infant throughout the night, without having them in your bed.

Sleep deprivation is common among parents of newborns.  Baby monitors allow parents to check in on their infant and determine whether or not attention is really needed.  Sound monitoring is going to be what awakens you, which makes it the most crucial feature for infant monitoring.  Using sound only baby monitors will mean that you’ll have to determine if you need to check on your baby or not and often, poking your head in your child’s room is enough to wake them. A video model can be worth the higher price tag because it will allow you and your child to get more sleep.

There are a few main types of video monitors: dedicated video monitors, iPhone video monitors and iPhone WiFi video monitors. Dedicated video monitors are the most common type and they work similar to a walkie talkie device. For this type of system you’ll place the camera in the baby’s room and watch and listen using a portable receiver. The iPhone video monitor is a style that relies on two IOS devices. One device will function as the receiver and the other IOS device will function as the camera. This kind of option can be a great solution in a hurry; however they aren’t very reliable so we do not recommend them for everyday use. iPhone WiFi digital monitor will utilize a WiFi security cam as a base station and your iPhone. This is considered a more complex type of setup but it can uniquely allow you to watch your infant from anywhere in the world. This isn’t considered a practical solution for everyday use.

When shopping around for a monitor, the first thing you need to consider is range capabilities. Make sure the model your purchase will work well in your home and yard and look for the range limits listed on the packaging. Typically, most models will offer 400 to 650 feet.

Even though you will mainly focus on a system’s display screen and image clarity, keep in mind that sound monitoring capabilities are crucial for everyday use. It’s the sound that will alert you to the needs of your baby and because of this sound clarity is very important.

Next, you’ll need to take a look at the image quality. A bigger display screen does not always mean that you’ll have a clearer view of your child. Choose a model that features infrared technology, which will allow you to view you child during the day or night. The ability to view your baby at night is more important than daytime viewing.

Obviously, price will also be a major factor and you’ll need to find a device that fits your budget. Keep in mind that the cost is definitely worth it in order to have peace of mind during the night and it’ll also allow you to catch more Zs.
