Who doesn’t want an extra pair of eyes and ears on their little ones while they are not in the room? And which mother does not want to get a good night’s sleep without having to wake up again and again to check on the baby. Yes all the mothers want to sleep peacefully knowing their child is safe. Baby monitor are thus extremely useful for making sure you know your baby is safe even when you’re not physically present in the room.
Babies deserve the best of everything and parents are always adamant on getting the best quality products for them. Baby monitors should thus be of the best quality as well. There are a few important factors that should be considered when purchasing a baby monitor.
The first important thing to see is whether the baby monitor is analogue or digital. Even though analogue monitors are less expensive, the drawback is that anyone within the range can easily eavesdrop. The digital monitors on the other hand have the ability to encrypt the audio transmission so that other people aren’t able to hear the sounds. There are also those that have a digital lock on the video images so that other people in the range aren’t able to see the video feed.
The next factor is to see what your requirements are. If you just need to hear your baby’s voice then you should go with the audio-only monitors which are less expensive. If you’re looking for an extra set of eyes to have on your baby then get the ones with video option. These come in different screen sizes and some also have the feature of night vision. Baby Monitor have evolved over time and the latest version is the one that gets connected to your smart device through Wi-Fi allowing you to baby monitor your baby from basically anywhere. It also lets you know about the baby’s vitals.
The frequency also matters when it comes to having a smooth transmission. The most readily available frequency is 49 megahertz. Next there is 900 megahertz which has a longer range than the previous one but poses a chance of interference from cordless phone on the same frequency. The 1.9 GHz band which supports DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Technology) is the one you should go for if you’re looking for maximum security and the least amount of interference.
