What to look for in a baby monitor


Suggested ad (Nanit)

Selecting just the right baby products as a new parent is like buying baseball equipment as a person who’s never played baseball. You probably have an idea of what you might need, but you don’t know what makes a high quality product. Don’t worry – we do.

Mommy see, mommy do

If you’re basing your image of a baby monitor off what you remember from the movies, you’re probably imagining something that looks like a walky-talky. Baby monitors have come a long way since the 90s though. A lot of them actually feature video monitoring, so you can see every squirm and hear every squeal.

The Nanit baby monitor actually provides a high definition live stream of your baby in her crib on your phone, so you can see what she is up to, whether you’re in the next room or back at work. With its unbeatable bird’s-eye view perspective, you can see every corner of the crib…in HD.

How insightful

When you’re expecting or have a new baby, everyone has advice for you. Some advice is more relevant than others – we’re talking about you, stranger at the grocery store – and advice tailored to your individual baby is priceless. A personal baby sleep coach in the palm of your hand is pretty much every parent’s dream, and is available exclusively with Nanit Insights.

Your Nanit provides personalized tips based on your baby’s unique sleep patterns. It can tell you if your baby’s room is too cold between 2 and 3am, and then adjust the temperature to make your baby more comfortable. If she’s soothing themselves back to sleep 4 out of 5 times, it can tell you that you can stay in your own bed and let her figure it out. Nanit knows how to help your baby get back to sleep, and now you do too.

Keep it locked down

Your baby monitor sees it all: the good, the bad, and the grumpy. If it’s connected to wifi and collecting data, you want to make sure that whatever happens in your home, stays in your home. Protecting your family’s data is just as important as locking your door at night, so you want a baby monitor that cares as much about your family’s safety as you do.

Nanit’s data is secured end-to-end. It’s encrypted and unidentifiable, using AES 256-bit symmetric-key encryption. They comply to rigorous standards, the same standards held by hospitals, healthcare providers, and your favorite app: Ovia. Everything Nanit sees, it keeps confidential.

Inform your village

Your baby monitor helps you keep an eye (and ear) on your baby from wherever you may be, but there are other people who might benefit from your monitor’s insights as well. With Nanit, you can share updates on your baby with the whole parenting team, including grandparents and nannies. Raising a child takes a village, so keep your village informed with up-to-date sleep tips, milestones, and adorable video!

With the right baby monitor, you can track, monitor, and even improve your child’s sleep. The Nanit Sleep System helps your baby sleep like a baby. You can go ahead and blink. You won’t miss a thing.
