IP Camera Baby Monitor – Hear, See And Speak!

 

 

Babyphones are a great help to make sure that your baby sleeps well. Usually you are happy when there are no noises from the baby monitor , but for many parents the calm is also worrying. If you want to track not only acoustically but also visually whether your baby is well, you should consider buying an IP camera . This type of surveillance camera is ideal as an alternative to the classic baby monitor and also offers a very wide range of functions.

In this article we would like to explain to you which functions an IP camera should have so that it is suitable for use as a baby monitor alternative.

resolution

Resolution is one of the most important factors to consider when buying a baby camera . Simple baby surveillance cameras provide image and video recordings in VGA format (640 × 480 pixels). However, this resolution is not always sufficient. Before you buy, check where you want to install the camera and then decide which camera resolution you need. If, for example, the Babycam can be placed directly above the baby bed, 640 × 480 pixels should be sufficient. If the surveillance camera is a few meters away from the baby bed, you should choose a model with HD or Full HD resolution. These models offer razor-sharp images in the format of 1280 × 720 pixels (HD) or 1920 × 1080 pixels (Full HD).

Night vision function

So that you can see that your baby is well, even in total darkness, we recommend an IP baby monitor camera with infrared night vision function. Find out from our product comparisons which camera models have a night vision function. You can recognize suitable baby monitor cameras with night vision function by the so-called IR LEDs, which are located on the lens.

Two-way communication

The addition “two-way communication” means that the IP camera is equipped with both an integrated microphone and an integrated loudspeaker. The integrated microphone enables you to hear what is happening around the camera via the PC user interface or via a mobile app. The people in the vicinity of the surveillance camera hear what you are saying via the user interface or the app via the loudspeaker. The two-way communication makes it possible to come into direct contact with the people within the surveillance radius.

If you want to use an IP surveillance camera as a baby monitor, you should make sure when comparing the product that the camera has a microphone and speakers. In addition, the camera should have a noise sensor.

Control via mobile app

IP camera manufacturers are increasingly offering their customers a free app for iOS and Android devices. With the help of these apps, images and sounds can be played on a smartphone or tablet. Mobile access to this data is particularly important for the purpose of baby monitoring . So you can quickly check whether everything is OK in the children’s room. Using the mobile app, two-way communication is also possible: To do this, you usually only have to press or hold a certain button (button) within the app and speak into the microphone of the respective device.

Montage of a baby camera

So that you always have everything in view, you should install the baby surveillance camera in the right place. We recommend installing the camera on the wall of the room behind or next to the baby bed. Most manufacturers include a practical wall / ceiling bracket in the scope of delivery, which can be installed in no time at all. If you choose a swiveling camera model, you can change the field of view flexibly.

Conclusion

If you pay attention to a few criteria when choosing a product, an IP-based surveillance camera can be used very well as a baby monitor. Make sure that the camera has sufficient resolution (depending on the installation location) and that it captures good pictures or videos even in the dark. So that you don’t just see that your baby is well, you should choose an IP camera with an integrated microphone and speaker. In order to make access to the image and sound material as convenient as possible, you should make sure that the manufacturer of the baby monitor camera provides a mobile app.
