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 Pro baby monitor actually provides a high definition 1080p live stream of your baby in their crib on your phone, so you can see what they’re up to, whether you’re in the next room or back at work. With its unbeatable bird’s-eye view perspective and HD night vision, you can see every corner of the crib, day or night.

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. You can also control what different people on your parenting team see and do on the app. Raising a child takes a village, so keep your village informed with up-to-date sleep tips, milestones, and adorable videos!

Take a deep breath

It’s easier to relax when you know that your baby’s sleeping safely. Nanit introduced Breathing Wear to give parents peace of mind. The Nanit Pro camera detects the custom-designed pattern on Breathing Wear, and sees your baby’s breathing motion as the pattern moves along with their breaths, without any electronics or sensors touching them.

Your baby’s breaths per minute will appear in a live feed on the Nanit app, so you can feel confident leaving your baby in their crib. You might even be able to cut down on all those hand-on-chest nursery visits in the middle of the night.

Watch them grow

Nanit’s Smart Sheets are uniquely designed to measure your baby’s growth spurts. Smart Sheets work with any Nanit camera to identify the pattern on your sheet so you can use in-app tools to easily measure your baby’s height and track their growth. The Nanit app will even automatically compile a photo time-lapse of your baby getting bigger before your eyes!

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. Personalized sleep coaching 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, so that you can adjust the temperature to make your baby more comfortable. If baby’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 them figure it out. Nanit knows how to help your baby get back to sleep, and now you do too.

A curated digital baby book

Nanit makes it even easier to store precious milestones of your baby’s first year by curating a digital baby book for you. Nanit Memories uses the camera’s unique tracking capabilities to detect your baby’s most important ‘firsts’ or unexpected moments. These moments are automatically saved directly to the Memories tab within the app so parents can enjoy them for years to come.

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 encrypted and unidentifiable. It complies to the same rigorous standards held by hospitals, healthcare providers, and your favorite app: Ovia. Everything Nanit sees, it keeps confidential. You can even enable two-step verification on the app to make sure no one can access your account without your permission.

Reliable and Super Secure

Nanit has a backup plan in place for times when parents are without Wi-Fi. While Wi-Fi is required for the initial setup, the Nanit monitor will continue to work without it and send a live feed to your mobile device’s app, as long as they are on the same network. Plus, Nanit prioritizes world-class safety measures by utilizing two-factor authentication, 256-bit AES dual encryption and implementing granular user permissions, making it one of the most secure smart baby monitors.

With the right baby monitor, you can track, monitor, and know your baby is breathing and sleeping soundly. The Nanit Complete Monitoring System helps your whole family sleep better by providing you with peace of mind, so you and your baby can get a peaceful night of sleep.
