Top 5 Best Baby Video Monitors | 2017 Reviews
It’s difficult to create a ranking list for just about any product, because no two people have exactly the same needs. What makes an item ideal for one reader could be someone else’s deal-breaker. That means we occasionally have to make tough, executive decisions when choosing products to list as the “best.”
We were faced with one of those decisions when ranking the top 5 best baby monitors. For example, should “best baby monitor” mean simply that you get the sharpest picture and highest quality sound from the baby’s room? Or does a monitor also have to be able to capture pictures and video at will, or play soothing music for a crying infant or sick baby?
We’ve tried to split the middle. We’ve included both types but focused on the baby-specific models, with just one high-end general-purpose monitor included for comparison.
There are other considerations when choosing a video baby monitor, of course. The range of the system (and whether it can reliably transmit through one or more walls), whether it interfaces with cellphones and tablets, and the ease of setting it up all should factor into your buying decision, as should invaluable features like motion detectors and push-to-talk capability (so you can calm a fussing infant). These are reflected in our rankings as well.
So, as you read through our list of the top 5 best baby monitors, please remember that we’re trying to provide enough information to let every reader make his or her own decision. The factors that are most important to you may make our #3 or #4 choice your number one option. All five, though, are fine products.
