SUMMER INFANT: Selecting the Perfect Monitor

As a new parent, selecting the right monitor for your home can seem overwhelming. Monitors offer a variety of features. Depending on what’s most important to you, you can choose the best Summer Infant monitor to meet your needs.

Are you interested in an audio monitor or a video monitor?

Do you want the option to see baby while sleeping or just the ability to hear when he or she wakes up? Audio-only monitors are less expensive and usually take up less space. Video monitors offer more options, such as choice of screen sizes, pan, scan and zoom, night-vision and more.


Are you having multiples or do you plan to have more than one child?

Some monitors come with 2 parent units and allow you to monitor 2 rooms, 3 rooms, or many rooms in rotation. If you have more than one child, or want to view more than one room (such as a nursery and a playroom), you can mount various units throughout the house to monitor multiple areas at once.

Will it be important to you to talk to baby?

Some monitors have talk back capability. This is helpful when your baby is crying and simply needs to hear your voice to be soothed.

Other options to consider:

  • Security
  • Multi-platform Monitor Systems
  • Image Quality
  • Environmental Control
  • Night Vision / Lights & Sounds
  • Split Screen Technology
  • Wide View Lens Technology
  • Remote Image Control
