If you’re a parent, I’m sure you’ll remember just how impossible it seems to get anything done around the house when you are caring for a newborn. While it may get easier as your baby grows, (you can leave them briefly in a play chair or on a mat and hello CBeebies!), you still have to make sure you can keep an eye on them at all times – especially when they start to roll and crawl.
In this way, you will be able to keep them safe from bumps and falls, or from putting whatever they touch in their mouth. Who hasn’t winced as their little one discovers electrical sockets (you can get safety covers!) or the cat’s food! Fortunately, the advancements in modern technology now mean that parents and carers can monitor their young ones even if they are in another room, or even out of the house, any time of the day.
If you want a baby monitor that can grow with your kid, then invest in one that can function as a night light and an alarm clock. Some can function as a sound machine. The great thing about this device is that you will be able to control all these features through an app installed on your smartphone. We used ours for years as they are a great way of checking that your kids have actually gone to sleep and they come into their own when your little ones are poorly at night.
If always seeing your baby is what brings you peace of mind, then invest in a smart home camera that you can control through your phone. This is made possible by the artificial intelligence (AI) which is integrated into the camera, together with Hubble or the smart platform that supports it. The latter can even support other devices such as audio products from the likes of headphones and speakers.
On the other hand, there are also multi-purpose monitoring systems that allow multiple users to stream and watch videos simultaneously. Other smart home cameras also feature night vision, as well as two-way audio. Still, there are also home camera systems with integrated control for room temperature and humidity.
As much as possible, you would want to keep your baby well-fed because in this case, he or she is more likely to be calm. For this, you need a baby feeding monitor that will keep you updated about your baby’s feedings through Bluetooth technology. This device takes one less off your checklist during your pediatrician visit as your baby’s feeding data is properly recorded.
There are already gadgets that allow you to monitor your baby’s temperature even if you are not in the same room. Your baby just needs to use a wearable device to allow you to do so. Aside from the temperature, the app you install on your phone to control the device can also send you notifications on when you need to give the next dose of medicine for your baby.
Leverage on technological innovations to make sure that you can keep an eye on your little one whenever you need to, wherever you are. You can invest in a two-way audio monitor that can also function as a night light or an alarm clock, or opt for a home camera that will allow you to see your baby through your mobile phone. In addition to this, you can also go for a high-tech baby feeding monitor or a smart thermometer that keeps you updated on their feeding or temperature through Bluetooth technology.
