About this deal

However, although Babysense does make a breathing monitor, this model doesn't have any of the more "smart" features like movement alerts or a Wi-Fi connection and app.

The company says it can last as long as 20 hours in eco mode, which is when the screen goes dark and lights up only when it detects sound. The Nanit Pro consists of a futuristic-looking camera head that attaches easily to three different styles of mounts: a wall mount, a floor stand, or the portable Flex Stand. The display shows you the room’s temperature, too, though in our temperature testing it consistently measured a few degrees higher than the control.Being able to keep an eye on both my little ones, without having to switch the camera from one to the other has been immeasurably helpful. Parent tester Luke said, "The core features are great and do as they should, it handles video and sound between the camera and the parent unit brilliantly with no lag and in decent quality," although he did find the parent unit was not the most intuitive to use.

I’ve tested all of the above and you can read my reviews further down, followed by some advice on how to use them.Mount or stand – Video monitors will need to be placed on a shelf, fastened to a wall or placed on a stand to give you a good view of your baby. Wi-Fi connection – Although most monitors will have their own signal built in, some will also connect to your home Wi-Fi, and have an app you can add to your phone. If you want an audio monitor that displays the temperature in your child’s room: The Motorola PIP11 does that, and it also allows you to play lullabies and control a very low night-light remotely.

The night vision camera is excellent and comes with three placement options (wall mount, floor stand or mobile). We found the range - the maximum working distance between the camera and parent unit - was seldom as far as advertised.

While a lot of baby monitors have standard in-cot motion alerts, this special features gives this monitor more longevity once your child has moved to a bed: you could set up a zone around their bedroom door to alert you when they leave their room, for example. Such steps include using a unique password for the router (don’t leave it on the default settings), enabling WPA3 or WPA2-PSK security, and allowing automatic updates to run.

For those that need charging, check the battery life: most last 8-12 hours max, so will need recharging every day. It is nigh identical in design and capability to the Leapfrog camera above – VTech is Leapfrog’s parent company, after all – but the unit isn’t touchscreen and while the screen is bigger, the battery doesn’t last quite as long, so it lost a few points there. Each year thousands of products are put through their paces by hundreds of parents across the country on behalf of MadeForMums, to ensure we’re bringing you honest and true reviews and recommendations. When Jasper was co-sleeping with us, his granny often had to remind us that there was a live video feed from our bedroom to the kitchen screen, so be wary when you’re changing or having private conversations! We supply leading branded options such as Motorola, Vtech, Owlet and Tommee Tippee monitors in our range.And the VM5254 produces a considerably smaller field of view than our other picks, which can feel limiting in comparison. I loved this model, partly because of its giant, 7-inch high definition screen which looks and feels like a tablet, complete with a kickstand.
