Checklist For Baby Monitors With Camera
- You can choose between two different systems for a baby monitor with a camera.
- In the case of a baby monitor with a transmitter and receiver unit , the video and audio signals are transmitted using the DECT radio standard, which is also used by cordless phones, or the FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) standard for wireless connections. Both standards are very tap-proof.
- Baby monitors with a camera that are integrated into the home WLAN network also offer reliable transmission but can be easily intercepted. With these baby monitors, your smartphone or tablet with an app from the manufacturer serves as the receiving device.
- The range of a baby monitor with the camera is limited when using common wireless standards.
- Manufacturers usually specify a range of 30 to 50 m indoors. However, you have to keep in mind that thick walls and massive furniture between the transmitter and receiver can affect the data transmission.
- The range of WLAN baby monitors is practically unlimited. In any case, the baby monitor should be equipped with an alarm function in case of a connection interruption.
- The size and resolution of the display on the parent unit are important. The diagonal of the display should not be smaller than 5 inches (approx. 13 cm). The display resolution should be at least 720p, i.e. HD. With smaller displays and a lower resolution, details are hardly recognizable, especially in night vision mode.
- This function is very convenient and can save the battery of the parent unit.
- VOX function means that the baby monitor turns on only when sounds are detected. The rest of the time, the baby monitor is silent and the display is off.
- If the baby monitor with camera is equipped with an intercom function, you will not only be able to hear your baby, but you will also be able to talk to him soothingly when he wakes up in the middle of the night.
- A night vision function is important so that the camera can provide good images even in low light. Various baby monitors with cameras offer other useful additional functions. For example, a night light, the ability to project a starry sky on the ceiling or play music to help you fall asleep.
