Angelcare AC1100 Baby Monitor
Angelcare provides quality video and sound to monitor your baby’s every move in a single system. The under-the-mattress sensor pad detects all movement, whether your infant is awake or fast asleep. This versatile monitor lets you change all the options from the touch-screen on the parent’s unit, even deactivating video, movement or sound to meet your needs.
Summer Infant Baby Touch Digital Video Monitor
This revolutionary touch-screen, video-capable baby monitor allows you to pan, scan and zoom — you can even control the brightness. The stylish magnetic docking station for the handheld unit and wireless rechargeable battery-powered dock for the camera unit make this a great option for tech-curious parents. The talk-back option lets parents speak into the handheld monitor so their voices are projected through the camera unit.
VTech Safe & Sound Full-Color Video & Audio Monitor
If you’d like to be completely in tune with your little one, the VTech Safe & Sound Full-Color Video & Audio Monitor will give you a full audio-visual solution for the peace of mind you need, even if you’re up to 1,000 feet away. The split-video screen, infrared night-vision capability and two-way intercom system allow parents to watch their baby as if they’re in the room. The polyphonic lullabies, temperature sensor and vibrating alerts give doting parents an extra sense of independence.
iBaby Monitor makes it easy to check on your baby at home or on the go. The camera can follow an active baby with the click of a mouse or the swipe of a finger on your computer, iPhone or iPad. With infrared night vision, iBaby Monitor provides movement and audio alerts so you can keep a watchful eye on your angel from the next room or the next continent. The iBaby app can be shared by up to four users and even captures and sends photos.
