As a millennial parent, you are probably thinking how can technology make your life easier now that your baby has arrived.
You may have already heard about baby monitors – a little camera by your baby’s bed. This device then transmits audio or video into another unit that you keep close to yourself. They are a great helping hand if you want to keep an extra set of eyes on your little one.
But did you know that there is a cheaper and much more flexible solution? The answer is a baby monitor app. Therefore, we are listing 7 reasons why you should consider trying out a baby monitor app before you make a bigger investment.
1. Travel light
If you travel with your baby, there is a ton of things you need to think about and pack. How is all of that going to fit in the luggage? Not to mention the weight limitations.
Why pack the same device twice? You are already bringing your phone or tablet anyway. Just install a baby monitor app and you are good to go.
2. Distance is no issue
And if you are traveling without your baby (or just started going back to work) you can always check on your bundle of joy from anywhere in the world. Of course, you trust your babysitter, but this way you have reassurance.
Our app works on both Wi-Fi and 3G giving you not only a long range but an unlimited range. So you know you are always just a touch away from your baby’s smiley face.
3. More “parents” can check on more babies
Do you have two, three or even four babies all in separate rooms? No need to buy multiple cameras. Just install the app on another old phone or tablet and place each device in a different room. Annie Baby Monitor is able to monitor up to four babies.
And you can do the same with your “parent unit”. Grandma, grandpa, auntie, big sister – they all can install the app and check on the new family member.
4. Pay less for more
Raising a child is clearly a costly journey. And every cent you manage to save is a little victory. A baby monitor app is a cheaper choice than a camera as it costs only a couple of dollars.
5. Both audio and video
Can’t decide what is the main priority – hearing or seeing your child? Thanks to the audio you can hear whenever your baby is crying and with the video you see directly what the little one is doing.
With an app, you can have the best of both worlds. You can even use the talkback feature that allows you to talk to your child on long distances.
6. Simple and user-friendly
Not everyone is a techy person and setting up even the simplest of technologies can be a tiring task. With a little baby in the house who has any energy left for that?
With an app you don’t need to learn which buttons to push, the intuitive interface has your back. Simply follow the instructions on your phone and your baby monitor will be set up in seconds.
7. Always updated
We listen carefully to all feedback from our customers and never stop integrating new features and tuning in our baby monitor app. You buy one product but it is evolving perpetually as new needs arise and new discoveries are made.
One of our new features is the possibility to play white noise – a real lifesaver when it comes to making your baby sleep better. (Check out: 8 Benefits of Baby White Noise)
