Baby monitors have come a long way. At one point they were nothing more than a pairing of a microphone and a speaker, and they were on frequencies that weren’t necessarily private. But now, such as with the HOMIEE Video Baby Monitor with Camera, not only do you get video, but you can pair additional cameras as well, so you can keep an eye on the baby crib and keep an eye on an older child as well who is playing elsewhere in the house.
It should be noted that if you wish to pair an additional camera, you need to check out the documentation and purchase the correct version, as the additional cameras only work with a certain model, and the software may need to be upgraded as well.
There is no need to connect to Wi-FI and there are no concerns of 3G/4G mobile data traffic. The 2.4GHz wireless technology in the baby monitor provides 100% digital privacy and security with a range of up to 1000 feet in open space.
Aside from linking additional cameras, even with just one camera, you will still have 360-degree omni-directional coverage. The camera will rotate around 360 degrees to bow and lie down up to 105 degrees. It also features zoom, if there is something in particular you need to see close up. Night vision is supported as well.
The microphone and speaker system works both ways. Not only will you be able to hear your baby’s cries, but they will be able to hear you comfort them back to sleep and even sing them a lullaby. Or, you can rely on the built-in lullabies in the system.
Additionally, the baby monitor will help you track the temperature in the baby’s room. Certainly, you don’t want them getting too cold or too warm. Just as the monitor will alarm you to your baby’s cries, it will also alarm you when the temperature gets too warm or too cool.
