Smart baby monitors are devices that enable you to keep an eye on your baby while away from the house. They work much like video monitors, but they are more convenient and easier to use because they are designed to detect and record live movements and sounds. The more sophisticated models can even detect fall asleep states and record the time the baby is asleep or aroused.
A smart baby monitor is basically a wireless device to remotely monitor your infant’s activities. It usually consists of a transmitter for the mother, a baby unit with an extremely sensitive audio recording unit, as well as a receiver for the caregiver. Smart baby monitors help caregivers to easily see if the infant is awake during the night. They also help them to understand the infant’s normal sleeping and waking patterns and then use these data to provide feedback to the mother or caregiver.
Most smart baby monitors come with two way communication with the caregiver, which allows them to interact with the child even though they are not present. This means you can keep track of the child’s sleep patterns and activities and then, when you feel like you want to, you can play back the recordings to get an idea of how the infant sleeps. This is particularly useful if you are taking naps during the day or are constantly doing work during the night. By using the two way connection, caregivers can hear the infant and then, when necessary, play back recordings of their child to learn what their normal sleeping patterns for rest are.
In some models of smart baby monitors there are built-in Infrared motion sensors. These sensors pick up the presence of small human-sized objects such as hands and feet, as well as heat, movement and other attributes of these objects. Then the monitors play back a recording of the activity of the small person and the sound of their movements. The best models can detect up to 97% of the movement in an infant and then play back a time-line of the activity, showing the name of the person that was found sleeping and the activity level (such as sitting, standing, etc). The only drawback to these sensors is that they are not always as sensitive as they should be and sometimes fail to pick up the smaller movements of an infant which can make them appear asleep even when they are not.
Some models of smart baby monitors also incorporate other technologies into their design. One such technology includes the ability to speak to the baby or read their text messages. This is very useful when the infant needs to be reassured, and when they are in a quiet and safe place to do so. Even if this is not your primary reason for having one of these devices, it certainly helps to keep track of how much sleep your little one is getting, how many feeds are being received and even their temperature at night.
These innovative devices are making it easier than ever before to keep track of the health of your infant. In addition to the regular features of these gadgets like video imaging and the audible tracking of their movements, you can also use lullabies with these smart baby monitors. If you’re worried about your child being able to fall asleep on their own, then buying one of these devices is probably a good idea from the outset.
