A wifi baby monitor is an excellent gift for a family expecting a child this holiday season or soon after. It’s also an essential component of every nursery that should be on your baby shower gift registry. Whether yours comes from a holiday gift, your baby shower or you buy it yourself, be sure to choose or request the MobiCam HDX, the best combination of features, quality and affordability.
The MobiCam HDX HD WiFi Pan & Tilt Monitoring System (https://www.target.com/p/mobicam-hdx-pan-38-tilt-smart-hd-wifi-video-baby-monitor-monitoring-system-wifi-camera-with-2-way-audio/-/A-77287701) is available at Target and comes with a range of features you’ll like. These include the ability to view your video feed from any location in the world using your smart phone and the ability to play lullabies through the wifi baby monitor using your phone.
But how do these features work? And how are they useful? Let’s take a look.
See Multiple Views From Any Location
With some video baby monitors, you can see only a single view and must carry a clunky viewer with you. The range may be limited. With the MobiCam HDX, there’s no viewing screen deal with – and you can connect as many as 15 other cameras to your home’s wifi network and manage them all from your Mobi BABY app.
That means, for example, that you can set one camera for a wide angle of the nursery. Don’t see the baby in the crib? Use the pan, tilt and zoom to locate your child and the babysitter in the rocking chair in the corner. Still can’t see anyone? Check the living room camera to see your home’s occupants happily playing on the sofa. Check your kitchen, the backyard camera or the view from the garage. You can zoom in, pan around or tilt, seeing almost all the way around the camera.
The Mobi BABY app, available for Android and iOS, can deal with 16 views and show you up to 4 views at once – so you can keep up with your children and everything happening in your home no matter where you are. As long as your home has a wifi network, you can use your smart phone to check in from anywhere in the world with a good connection.
Speak With And Play Lullabies To Your Children
An included feature of the Mobi BABY app allows you to play prerecorded lullabies to your child or children through the wifi baby monitor from wherever you are. This means you can participate in an ancient bedtime ritual even when you have to be out late, away on business or dealing with other family matters in another city.
This lullaby feature is possible because of the speaker included as part of the MobiCam HDX unit. But this device doesn’t just include a speaker; there’s a microphone too. Using the app’s two-way audio feature, you can carry on a conversation with anyone near one of your cameras. Your smart phone serves as your microphone and speaker while the MobiCam HDX handles the other end of the conversation.
That means you can speak to your baby and other children, give the babysitter new instructions and listen for responses. And since you’re speaking to them through the baby monitor, you can see if anyone’s paying attention!
A Long List Of Other Features
The MobiCam HDX includes other features too. The most important is smooth HD video that makes it easy to see what’s happening in detail. The pan, tilt and 2x digital zoom mean you can see specific things in every room, not just a single wide view.
Other features include night vision that allows you to see up to 40 feet in the dark, online and offline recording, advanced security to prevent unauthorized access and easy voice-prompt setup.
Motion alerts mean you know when to check-in, especially if you and your children are out together and you aren’t expecting anyone to be in the home. And for those times when you can’t check-in yourself, you can authorize up to 15 other users to see the feeds from your cameras – and revoke access and lock them out when you’re home.
You can even record clips through the app and share them quickly and simply to social media. The MobiCam HDX (https://www.target.com/p/mobicam-hdx-pan-38-tilt-smart-hd-wifi-video-baby-monitor-monitoring-system-wifi-camera-with-2-way-audio/-/A-77287701) also has a separate recording feature that will store up to 30 days of recordings on an optional SD memory card.
So no matter how you get one, get a MobiCam HDX for your nursery. But don’t turn down any extras you may get as gifts. Most households will want several – because there’s always another corner of your home you may want to keep an eye on.
