You Must Know And Think Of This Before Buying A Baby Monitor2 min read
Baby monitors are safe. Baby Monitor was first discovered by Norman Emerick of the Fisher-Price company in 1930. A few years later, the use of baby monitors is very widespread in America and even in several other developed countries. The first baby monitors were made to have a really simple form and function with one-way communication. But nowadays, technology is developing rapidly and baby monitors are equipped with various features such as a digital video camera, night vision, a baby movement detector, two-way speech, vibrating alert, night light, built-in lullabies. Some of the baby monitors can even be used by a mother during the trip. Various brands might make you wonder which baby monitor is best?
Most people choose to buy a sound-type baby monitor. Because the price is relatively cheap. But if you want the best for your little one, maybe you will consider buying one of the more complete types of baby monitors with features and functions. Before buying, there are several things to consider:
1. Features and technology
Try writing a list of the baby monitor features you need. But generally, camera, audio, and night vision are the 3 main needs. Think carefully do you need a song player feature to help the baby fall asleep? Or do you need a motion detection feature? These things you should decide carefully before buying.
2. It’s Equipped with an alarm
If you are worried about the safety of your baby, choose a baby monitor that is integrated with alarms, door sensors, and others.
3. Monitoring via app
In addition to the built-in monitor, most baby monitors can be accessed via an application on a smartphone (Android and iOS). To be more practical, you should activate the application so that you can always keep an eye on your baby when you work at home or when you are out of the house.
4. Secure password
Baby monitor access requires a password. To be more secure, use a password that is complex and difficult to guess. Change passwords frequently to avoid possible hacking by unauthorized parties! Remember, don’t use family members’ names and birthdates as passwords, as these are the easiest to guess.
