What’s new in baby monitors

Fri, 30 Nov 2012 by Polycorp

Baby monitors serve as a great safety device for parents. They’re perfect for keeping track of your baby while you’re in a different room of your Ravenscraig New Home. Over the years baby monitors have changed, largely because of advances in technology. Though traditional baby monitors are still available, today, some baby monitors offer talk-back features, smart phone connectivity and video monitors all rolled into one.  

Vtech Communications Safe & Sound Digital Audio Monitor

This baby monitor has rechargeable batteries with up to 18 hours of monitor time. Its cordless feature allows you to carry it throughout different areas of your apartment. It’ll alert you every time a sound comes from your baby’s room and can speak to your baby from the parent unit. The DECT 6.0 digital technology helps eliminate white noise and static allowing you to hear your child. The Safe & Sound Digital Audio Monitor is perfect for any parent in the market for a baby monitor that won’t break the bank. It’s about $29.99 and available at different retailers.

Summer Infant BabyTouch Color Video Monitor

Monitor your baby through this 3.5-inch LCD screen. The touchscreen menu controls allows you to zoom, pan and scan remotely. With a range of 400 feet you’ll be able to keep an eye out on your child and multitask in your Ravenscraig New Home. View your baby throughout the night with the automatic black and white night vision capabilities. The talk back feature allows you to soothe your child from any room in your apartment. There’s also an on/off button that allows you to control when you want your monitor on and off. This product includes accessories (belt clip, flip stand, battery pack for the camera and recharging base for the parent unit). Available online and in stores, this product starts around $189.99.

iBaby Monitor

iBaby is far from your average baby monitor and is perfect for any parent on the go. You’ll be able to see and hear your infant no matter your location. The two-way audio component also allows you to talk or sing to your baby. Move the iBaby camera lens up or down and right or left to follow your baby with your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or mouse on your computer. You can even reposition the iBaby monitor by connecting your device to Wi-Fi. iBaby alerts you when your child moves or cries and you’re able to check in on your tot with no disturbance because of iBaby’s infrared night vision. This device will give you peace of mind when you’re running errands, dining with friends, working or at the gym. Friends and family can even tap into the monitor since this product features up four users with a single monitor. The iBaby Monitor goes for $199.95 and is available at baby retailers and Apple stores.

These are just three examples of what’s new in baby monitors. Do your homework and make a selection based on the price and style that’ll work best for you and your baby at your Ravenscraig New Home.
