SUMMER INFANT: How to Choose the Right Baby Monitor

Selecting a monitor can seem overwhelming. Let us help you choose the right one. Monitors offer a variety of features, so depending on what’s most important to you, you can choose the best Summer Infant monitor to meet your needs.

Here are some things to consider when choosing a monitor:

  • Are you interested in an audio monitor or a video monitor?
  • Are you having multiples or do you plan to have more than one child? You might want to consider a monitor that has two cameras.
  • Will it be important to you to monitor the temperature in your baby’s room or talk to baby or another adult in the nursery?
  • Will it be important for you to be able to monitor the baby remotely while at work or out during date night?
  • Try to think long-term and how you might want the monitor to grow with your family.

A few other things to look for:

  • Technology: Ensure it provides 100% digital privacy. All Summer Infant video monitors do. Our internet-viewable monitors provide bank level security for a private, secure view of baby anywhere.
  • Wearables: Do you want the convenience of wearing a monitor so that you don’t have to carry it from room to room? Babble Band is the first wearable audio baby monitor that allows parents to monitor baby while moving freely about the home.  This simple wearable audio monitor provides 3 modes of use: sound, vibration, and sound lights.  It’s perfect for parents working around the home from laundry, cooking, cleaning, or even exercising while baby sleeps.

  • Multi-platform Monitor Systems: Do you want to be able to monitor baby anytime, anywhere? Baby Touch Wifi Video Monitor & Internet Viewing System provides in-home, continuous and overnight monitoring on a traditional handheld video monitor, and allows you to view baby remotely via a secure APP for iPhone and Android devices. It’s perfect for working parents, date night peace of mind, or for long distance family members to stay in touch.

  • Adding Multiple Cameras: How many children do you have? As your family grows, you may want to add additional cameras to monitor separate rooms. Most of our monitoring systems can add up to four cameras for scanning between rooms.
  • Wide View Lens Technology: How much of baby’s room do you need to see at once? Wide View Digital Color Video Monitor features a large 5” color flat-screen monitor and a wide angle lens.

  • Remote Image Control: Does it zoom in and out or pan left to right, up and down? As baby becomes more mobile and starts to move around in the crib, the ability to remotely control the camera allows you to keep baby in view. Side by Side Split-Screen Video Monitor has a full range of pan, scan and zoom features.
  • Soother: Do you want to soothe your baby to sleep remotely? Our Baby Glow Video Monitor & Projection Camera offers a 3-color night light display and plays soothing melodies to help calm baby back to sleep, all easily controlled from your handheld monitor. Perfect for bedtime and the middle of the night wake ups calls.

  •  Image Quality: What size screen do you need? Sizes typically range from 2” to 5”. All Summer Infant monitors feature night vision for overnight viewing.
  • Communication: Many monitors allow you to talk-back to your baby to let them hear your voice, or talk to another caregiver to remind them where the wipes are!
  • Environmental Control: Does it have a night light? Can it also monitor the temperature in baby’s room?
  • Range: How big is your house and how far away do you need the monitor to read?

From audio, video and internet viewable, our full range of monitors allows you to select the perfect solution for your lifestyle and your home.
