From connectivity to design, it has nothing that you would complain about. But this monitor is expensive than the iBaby M6S Monitor and that’s pretty obvious, as it offers more features than the iBaby M6S. And even after being expensive it is one of the best-selling monitors. Take a look at its features.

This is the thing that will help you to keep your eyes on what’s exactly going on with your little ones. There are some monitors that come with two receivers and some come with only one. It actually depends on your need.
If you want both of you (father & mother) to track on your children’s activity, it would be better to get the monitor that comes with two receivers. On the other hand, if you got only one receiver with the monitor, you can also purchase another separately.
Do own a big house? And will be roaming with the monitor a lot? If your answer is positive, then you might want a monitor that is portable so that you will be able to carry it easily.
Some monitors run with rechargeable batteries and some from a direct power source. Monitors that comes with a rechargeable battery are convenient for use because there will be no chance of getting out of the batteries. Moreover, few monitors feature both options.
Analog or Digital?
There are two things through where the monitors transmit, digital or analog. Digital monitors are the most preferable as they are highly secure and that means, your neighbor won’t get to listen to you babies activities when they are on the wireless network (phone or anything else). That being said, digital monitors are expensive but that delivers superb value.
On the other hand, analog monitors are less secure than the digital and also comes at a cheap price.
Baby monitor comes different ranges and it’s up to which range you choose. You are going to need a wider range if you have a big house and you will be spending most of your time in the backyard while your babies are in their room.
Plus, there are some monitors that feature an alert alarm which rings when you go out of the range. That could be helpful for you.
Make sure, you choose a monitor that is loud enough so that you would clearly hear what exactly happening in your baby’s room.
Some baby monitor model comes with a temperature sensor, that will help you to know what’s the temperature status on the room. So you will be able to take action according to that.
Few latest audio monitors offer a sensor pad which you can place under your baby’s sheet. This pad will give you an alarm if your baby is not moving for long or stopped breathing for a long time.
This is actually for nervous parents who are always tensed about their baby’s, even when they are sleeping.
Pick a monitor that features night vision functioning which will enable you to keep your eyes on the little one even when the room is very dark.
