The Next Generation of Baby Monitors

Remember the days of a walkie-talkie next to the crib to make sure the baby wasn’t awake and hungry? One of the latest monitors to hit U.S. shores is quite a far cry from that. The Smart Baby Monitor has the classic audio capability – and adds to that a 3 megapixel camera with night vision, a motion and sound detector, and (what grabbed our interest here at Devar) temperature and humidity monitors. We know that monitors are used in all types of industrial applications, but this is perhaps the closest use to home that we’ve seen yet.

The monitor doesn’t come cheaply, but can you really put a price tag on the peace of mind in knowing that your loved one is safe and soundly asleep? For the ultimate in convenience, everything can be linked to your iPhone – fully integrated monitoring in the palm of your hand. Feeds can also be checked over the internet, but we like idea of being able to simply reach over to the nightstand and look at your phone, to provide all you need to know for a good night’s rest for your baby – and you.
