Baby monitors are truly a godsend, for new and seasoned parents alike. Though there are a variety of models available, Wi-Fi baby monitors can help you check in on your baby from anywhere, whether you're in the next room, busy at work, or having a much needed date night! This is the main reason so many parents today are opting to purchase a Wi-Fi baby monitor.

Find out how to choose a Wi-Fi baby monitor by learning what features to look for and understanding the different benefits that you will need the most.

What to Look for in a Wi-Fi Baby Monitor

With a variety of Wi-Fi baby monitors available, it can be overwhelming to pare down your options to the one that’s right for you and your family.

Consider the following features when choosing a baby monitor:

  • Video clarity.

     

    No question that video monitors are far superior to audio-only models. However, be sure to check how good the video stream picture is. Does it pixelate if you zoom in? The best clarity available on the market today is 1080p HD, so you want to try and aim for that range.

  • Night vision.

     

    As you'll spend a lot of time looking at your baby monitor during the hours of darkness, choose a model with outstanding night vision so you can see if your little one is really awake or just dreaming!

  • Wide angle view.

     

    Consider how you will want to use your monitor. Having the option to use the monitor to view the whole nursery / room as well as getting a clear view of the crib enables you to capture more of your baby’s environment and everyday activities.

  • Room temperature and humidity tracking.

     

    Knowing the temperature and humidity in your baby’s room [add link to baby sleeping temperature article when live] lets you know if you should dress your little one in a warm sleeping sack, remove a layer of clothing, or use a humidifier—providing extra peace of mind that your baby is comfortable.

  • Continuous background audio.

     

    One of the advantages of Wi-Fi baby monitors is that they usually come with an app, enabling you to keep an eye on your baby from anywhere. That said, you want to make sure that whichever monitor you choose features background audio so that you can hear your baby even while using other apps or when your phone screen is locked.

  • Two-way audio.

     

    Being able to push the button and

     

     

    as soon as she starts fussing is a game changer. It can be the difference between you little one waking up fully (by the time you reach her room) or falling back to sleep.

  • Multi-caregiver.

     

    Make sure whichever Wi-Fi monitor you select lets you set up additional caregivers (like your parents or a babysitter) and control permissions from the app. This level of security settings is super important to ensure only the people you choose can access your monitor feed.
