How to Buy This Type of Device
There are many options on the market presently and as such, it might be quite hard to choose one for your baby. When shopping, it is necessary to ensure that you pick up the one that meets your needs and preferences. A product like that is quite reliable and is bound to make it easy for you to supervise your babies. Here are some ideas and tips you should keep in mind:
The working range is a very important consideration. The only product you should purchase is one that has a long range that will allow you to move easily around your house and allover the homestead including in the backyard.
If you live in a house with many rooms and thick walls, you should consider getting a wireless one. This is because camera systems with WiFi connectivity come without any range limitations and their efficiency is not obstructed by thick walls.
Analog or digital transmission
Analog devices tend to have poor quality sound and video clarity. As such, they may not be the best option to get. However, analog devices are very cheap. But their transmissions are not secure and can thus be hacked into very easily.
On the other hand, digital devices are exceptionally reliable, have great sound and video quality, and have secure transmissions as well as good working ranges. They are however a little more expensive. But they are worth every cent they cost.
There are 2 main types products on the market presently: Video and WiFi. There are also audio devices but dual camera function mostly comes with video ones. Audio ones come with limited features, are less expensive, and do not transmit any images or video.
WiFi and Video units are more sophisticated but are more expensive than their audio counterparts. These products (video and WiFi) come with advanced features, good range, easy to customize, video streaming, live feed, and real time tracking among other features.
Night vision is a very important feature but not many parents realize this at first. Night vision allows you to comfortably checking the babies at night without having to put on the lights. Night vision is a very crucial feature as it saves you the trouble of walking to the nursery at night to check on the baby.
Most systems come with a night vision of different ranges such as 12ft, 15ft or 20ft. it is advisable to settle on a device whose night vision range is long enough to cover your house such that you can check the baby from any room at night.
If you want to see the baby together with another person such as your partner or nanny, you should get a double tracking system with more than one receiver/parent unit. Most of them come with only one receiver, but some of the latest models come with two or more receivers.
In addition, you can also consider getting a product that is compatible with smart devices such as smartphones, tablets, iphones, PCS and ipads among other devices. They have apps that can run in different devices at the same time thereby allowing multiple tracking.
Temperature Sensor & Motion Detection
Having a camera with a temperature sensor is a great advantage. This is because the sensor makes it easy to check the temperature of the nursery in real time and make the necessary adjustments. For instance, if the nursery’s temperature is too low, you can add warm clothing on the babies to ensure that they do not feel cold.
Motion Detection is yet another important extra to look for. This cool feature makes it easy to know when the baby moves or when the baby wakes up. The feature is particularly necessary in preventing SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) as the system alerts you immediately the baby makes even the slightest movement.
Sound Activated Lights
These lights come in handy in alerting you when there is sound in the baby’s room. Most products have 5-sound activated lights. The light blinks to alert you that there is sound/noise in the nursery.
Battery life is a crucial feature so that the system remains powered on for the length of time you want. You should only settle on a product whose battery life meets your needs and preferences.
In addition to battery life, you should also look for a low battery alert feature. Some devices will sound an alarm or vibrate when the battery is excessively low and warn you to recharge the battery or seek an alternative power source.
The best display to look for is a digital full color display. This display has very unique images and videos that make it easy to see the baby and the surroundings in the nursery clearly and in the best way possible. Analog units have poor quality displays and may not clearly highlight all the essentials in the nursery.
Price is a clear difference between most options in the market. There are products that are very cheap; others are moderately priced while others are very expensive. Price influences the quality and features of these gadgets with most cheap ones being substandard, low in quality and generally inefficient. On the other hand, expensive options come with the finest features and are very efficient and equally reliable.
2-camera enabled monitors are a great choice if you have twins or want to track two babies at a time. These products provide an inexpensive solution as compared to using multiple products at once. In addition to this, most of them come with expandable functionalities and easy to customize features for convenient use.
