I’m Mallory, a babylist scout. And Today I’m here to help you pick the best monitor type for you. And there are two major types Wi-Fi and non-wifi. There are three big differences between them.
The type of connection used the actual device that you hold to view and hear the baby.
And the range first, the connection. This is what Tis to get the picture from the baby monitor to your viewing device. A lot of parents do have concerns about how secure that connection is, which is totally valid in short, no monitor is unbackable, but both wifi and non-WiFi monitors do have specific methods to ensure protection of your video and audio feed.
If you’re interested in all those technicalities, you can check out my other video for the details and pro security tips. The second big difference of these two types of video monitors is the actual device that you’re viewing the feed on. Remember, non-WiFi monitors equal handheld devices and wifi usually equals two phones or tablets.
Some parents love the convenience of app connection with wifi monitors that just keep in mind that you cannot be on Instagram and check on baby at the same time. And when grandma comes over and wants to sneak a peek at little baby sleep, and you’re going to have to lender your phone when it comes to these handheld monitors, they do work well for some parents, but the monitor is likely battery operated and just be sure to find a solid battery life with like more than eight hours otherwise charging all the time can get annoying.
The last difference to keep in mind with wifi and non-WiFi monitors is where do I check on baby from non-WiFi monitors do limit your range to about a thousand feet and note you’ll likely have to pay a little more for a range like that because the average range is about 700 feet with a wifi monitor.
You can access baby from anywhere as long as there’s wifi connection. This extends the life of a wifi monitor because it in the long run can become a nanny cam. I hope this has been helpful. Let us know in the comments, if you have any other baby monitor questions and be sure to check out baby lists, gear guides for more great info like this. Thanks for watching.
