Finding a good baby monitor can be such a difficult task, do you go for one with a long range? Find one that doesn’t connect to your WIFI? How about screen quality? I’ve been through at least 4 monitors since my son was born and I’ve constantly found myself disappointed in one way or another. My biggest complaint with the monitors was the quality, sometimes the quality of the video was so grainy I couldn’t tell if my son was asleep or not.
I was recently sent the Summer Infant Baby Pixel Cadet monitor to review and it really does give me everything I’ve needed in a monitor. It’s actually one of the best monitors I’ve ever used and I’ll tell you why—picture quality! I can see my son perfectly both in day mode and night vision.
The monitor itself goes into sleep mode when the baby’s room is quiet, which helps save battery, and it’s great for me- I can sleep comfortably without a bright light shining in my face all night. The second he’s awake and makes noise, the monitor comes back on to let me know what’s happening in the crib.
Another feature I really like about the monitor is the fact that it’s not WIFI capable, which I actually prefer. Not having the monitor linked to my WIFI means there’s less of a chance of someone hacking into my monitor to scare my child or watch them sleep (Is there anything scarier?!) And when we travel I can take the monitor with me and it’ll work in the hotel room with no problems, unlike monitors that require WIFI connection.
The camera and monitor was so easy to set up, I had it up and running within minutes and it’s really easy to navigate through. A few other features worth mentioning is the 1000 foot range, a nursery temperature display, a two way talk back to baby, white noise built in and the voice activated screen wake up. After going through so many different monitors, I gotta say, this one is the only one I’d recommend to a friend.
