Best Nanit App Video Review
Wi-Fi baby monitors are only as good as their app user experience. Meaning you can have all the bells and whistles in the world, but they become useless.
If the app sucks, one WIFI monitor that gets it right, this the Nanit Plus & Nanit Pro. So, in this video, I want to go over some of my favorite Nanit app features, plus highlight a relatively new feature that I believe submits her status as queen of all the baby monitor realm bow before your clean
This video app user experience is crucial for any WIFI baby monitor. And one of the most important aspects of this is how well the app is laid out with Nana.
Plus, I find that the layout is super clean and intuitive, and I can get to all the most common features quickly and easily, right from the main screen.
So, looking at the Nanit app, you’ve got all of the standard functions like talking about the background, audio toggle, the nightlight control icon, and a screen capture feature.
Also, the camera settings are all conveniently located in one centralized spot again, which is essential to having a good app experience. The Cubo, for instance, doesn’t have any controls on the main page, and you’ve got to tap through several screens to toggle the background audio function on and off. And on top of that, the Cubo doesn’t even allow you to turn the audio feed off when you’re in the app.
Nanit App: How it compares to the Miku app and the CuboAi app
The Miku has some of these kinds of features on the main page of their app.
But one thing that really bugs me about this app is that the sound defaults to being turned on once you first opened the app. And if the sound is on, that means the background audio is on as well.
So, if I’m in a meeting at work and I just want to, you know, open up the app to take a quick peek at my kid while you know, my coworker Craig drones on and on about why replying to all makes him so angry.
I have to remember to toggle the audio off before closing the app. Hey Craig, here’s the thought, just delete the email friend.
The next thing I really enjoy about the Nanit app is how customizable it is, especially when it comes to setting up your notifications.
Nanit App: How easy the app is to navigate
For instance, you can customize the sensitivity of the sound and movement alerts as well as set temperature and humidity level ranges, reducing or increasing.
The sensitivity levels will have a direct correlation to how many alerts you get. And more importantly, your sanity level. If the temperature and humidity in your child’s room exceed the ranges that you set, then you’ll get notifications for those as well.
You can also turn on the crib positioning alert, which will tell you if your child’s crib is no longer in an optimal position under the camera. And you can even configure a movement zone that will send you an alert.
If your child entered said movement zone and all of these things, again are in one centralized location within the app, you can quickly get to and find them all right together.
Now the Miku has three alert, notification options, movement sound, and awake asleep alerts, but there isn’t currently an option to customize any of them.
So, for instance, you either have to have movement and sound notifications turned off or have the notifications turned on and get all the alerts that come with it. I do want to give a shout-out to Miku for their recent activity tab update.
They incorporated the thumbnail view of the activity tab that makes it much easier to scroll through and view the available video clips plus their breathing monitoring is top of the class. So, there’s that too. Now, one of my most favorite things about the nano-plastics app is its insights feature.
Now I could probably do an entire video on how amazing the insights feature within the Nanit app is actually let me know in the comments whether or not you’d like me to make a full review of the Nanit insights feature in the future comment below. But here’s just a super quick overview of what that feature is.
Nanit App: Sleep insights
The insights feature displays a boatload of useful sleep information about your baby and provides tips and information on how to get your baby the best night’s sleep possible.
And this is all made possible by Nanit it’s computer vision, which captures and analyzes your baby’s sleep habits starting at four months old. It’s like having your very own Dr. Natalie Barnett Ph.D. and pediatric sleep expert in your home, which would be super dope because she’s got this amazing Australian accent running.
Know who Dr. Barnett is, I recommend you check out our online course about baby sleep called baby sleep school.
I actually sat down with Dr. Barnett and grilled her for a solid six hours to get all the information you need to know about the best ways to get your baby to be a great sleeper.
Nanit App: The new Night Mode feature
So, let’s get to this new feature that I think will make diehard traditional baby monitor fans go.
Yeah, a net new feature is called night mode, but first, some context traditional non-Wi-Fi parent units allow you to continually view the video stream, which means that the video feed will always be on.
So, if you have the screen turned on, on your TPU, or a traditional pairing unit, um, it will stay on until you physically turn it off. Now contrast that with app-based Wi-Fi monitors that use an app on your phone as the pairing unit, you lose connection to the video feed.
If your phone goes to sleep, or you turn it off, which is a big drawback for many people considering what baby monitor to buy.
If you’re using your phone as the pairing unit at night, when you want to check on your baby, you have to unlock your phone and open up the app just to view the video feed.
So, with this new night mode feature, your phone will go dark. So, the screen basically will lower the brightness level, uh, which means that that won’t affect your sleep. But when you want to check the video feed, you just need to tap on the screen and the screen becomes bright again. So, you can easily and clearly see the video feed. Super cool. This basically turns your phone into a traditional monitor while offering the high-quality resolution that traditional monitors lack

Typically, Nanit is an exceptional baby monitor and also app. The picture is extremely clear, it was incredibly simple to establish, as well as the application is extremely trustworthy. I no longer use a serrated app to track sleep because this is so accurate. Nanit Insights is such an incredible concept and also applied well for the most part. I think there is an area for enhancement, however.
- Ability to manually change/add an insights occasion
- Tracking wake windows
- «Snooze» feature
- Occasionally the app doesn’t connect to the monitor
- It also should be possible to toggle night vision on and off
- The price of the app is also obscene
