The baby monitor has come a long way since being introduced almost 80 years ago. The first was designed by Isamu Noguchi for Zenith Radio Corporation after the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby. The company’s president wanted a device to be able to listen to his daughter’s room. The advancements made since then are pretty amazing including a video monitor, night lights, and other upgrades. I’m long since past needing a baby monitor, but they still come in handy for pets too or anything else you want to monitor from a different room – like teenagers (which I have two of).
Foscam FBM2307 Digital Baby Monitor
The Foscam FBM2307 excels in affordability and ease of use. Watching your baby is simple with the 2.4″ touchscreen LCD monitor that doubles as a remote. The pairing button makes setup almost instant, and 2.4 GHz wireless technology transmits the signal at 4Mbps. Use the monitor’s VOX feature to conserve battery life: the screen automatically turns on when detecting voice above an adjustable decibel threshhold. The night light feature has three colors (yellow, green, orange), four brightness levels, and you can choose the darkness sensitivity that triggers the night light. The monitor has a rechargeable battery and transmits up to 300 meters for multi-story or yard viewing. All purchases from Foscam come with our 1 Year Domestic Warranty, making our quality engineered FBM2307 model one of best values available for a baby monitor purchase.
The video baby monitor has taken place of its audio predecessor. Instead of only being able to hear what your baby/child is up to, you’re able to set up a camera in their room and then watch them on a video monitor. I went to the Foscam camera site to check out their products and there are so many choices today, you can easily find something to suit a variety of needs. They offer an extensive baby monitor selection in all shapes, sizes, and colors. The way technology has evolved always amazes me and these cameras have been updated with some incredible features. There are plug and plays cameras which are as easy as they sound. You simply unpackage, plug them in and they start working. There are also some that are more complex such as wireless indoor and outdoor cameras, there are even hidden cameras in alarm clocks that are motion activated.
Foscam FBCAM3502 Ditgial Video Baby Monitor
The Foscam FBM3502 is the cutting edge of baby monitor technology for versatility, privacy, and ease of use. Watching your baby is effortless with the innovation of advanced motion tracking technology. The camera automatically follows your baby’s movement when detected in the range of view, or direction and zoom can be controlled with the high quality 3.5″ LCD monitor that doubles as a remote. Setup is easy with the pairing button, and 2.4 GHz FHSS technology allows the wireless transmission to be securely private and free of interference. You can communicate with your baby using the monitor, which has a temperature sensor and feeding timer that can send optional alerts. A lullaby feature can help your baby sleep, and night vision is 30% enhanced over the FBM3501. The monitor can toggle video, so that the screen will not activate during false alarms disturbing you with bright light while you sleep, and has a 3-4hr battery life or can be powered by a wall outlet. The kickstand / belt-clip provides convenience no matter where you are or what you’re doing around the house, and you can monitor up to 500 feet away from the yard or the other floors of your home. All purchases from Foscam come with our 1 Year Domestic Warranty, making our full-featured, quality engineered FBM3502 model the best value available for a baby monitor.
With the latest models, you can even monitor the room from your cell phone, tablet, or computer. The infrared feature has parents feeling pretty high-tech and is essential because a lot of baby monitoring happens at night. As well as the option temperature, sound, and motion detection that send you alerts, a wide angle camera monitors what you love most. A feature that would have come in very handy for me is how you can actually talk back to through the baby monitor these days. Being able to talk and soothe your baby from wherever you would have been so beneficial! These cameras have security to keep cameras safe from hacking too.
