Meet The Best Video Baby Monitor – WiFi Baby Review

WiFi Baby ReviewBaby monitors are ever evolving! It seems just like yesterday, I was excited to find out that I could watch my now four-year-old daughter on a portable video monitor. Having this luxury seemed groundbreaking at the time, but little did I know how much baby monitors would advance in such a short period of time. There are so many things you can do with a baby monitor in 2016.  You can watch your baby over the internet! How crazy is that? Some monitors even let you record whole sequences and takes pictures of your baby. The monitor I had just four years ago seems like a dinosaur now! 

I love this advancement in technology now that I’m pregnant with twins. With a rambuncious four-year-old to take care of and a full-time at home job, I will definitely need a baby monitor close by at all times! The only thing that worries me about a new baby monitor is the security of streaming a video of my babies via a internet connection. That’s how I came across WiFi Baby.

WiFi Baby Review

WiFi Baby is a wireless-network based camera that gives parents peace of mind with the ability to monitor anywhere via apps on iOS or Android devices. It turns your iPhone, iPad or Android device into a full-featured monitor without restricting the use of the mobile device. This completely eliminates the need of carrying around a bulky monitor that has no other use than to stream video from the monitor. Also, mom can watch baby sleeping while out shopping while dad uses the app while working in another room at home.  

With this advanced technology, WiFi Baby wanted to ensure they provide parents with the upmost privacy and security while using the baby monitor.

  • Unlike other monitors, WiFi Baby does not use a cloud to access your camera remotely or to record. The video and audio are never uploaded, recorded and downloaded from a cloud server. Instead, you can record your baby using the camera’s DVR function that stores footage on a MicroSD card. 
  • The wireless connection doesn’t use the internet either, it connects only locally using your network. It’s like any other device that connects wirelessly to your router without the need for an internet connection. This is also plus because the monitor uses ZERO internet bandwidth. 
  • Each WiFi Baby has a unique MyWiFiBaby URL that is used to access remotely with a username and password.  In this case the path is direct from Device > External WiFi or Data Plan > WiFi Baby – not a connection that uploads and downloads your video from the cloud.

If the ability to monitor my babies anywhere wasn’t enough to win me over, the superior image and sound quality of the video streaming did! The video quality of my first baby monitor is laughable compared to the WiFi Baby 4. It features HD video 8x zoom and with a 35% wider view than the previous model it provides the longest range of any baby monitor out there. Even at night, the monitor reaches up to 30 feet away, giving me a clear photo of the nursery. Though my twins will be sharing a bedroom with us for the first few months, it’s relieving to know that when we move them to their bedroom, I can still watch over them closely.

Other Features

  • The WiFi baby mobile app works in the background, filtering audio and alerts through your device as you have other apps running. You can check your email or finish that game of Angry Birds with peace of mind that your babies are sleeping soundly. 
  • For multiple kids, you can also add up to 4 cameras to the Wifi Baby app.
  • Apple Watch auto alerts. The monitor will notify you via Apple Watch when baby is crying.
  • Constant-connect, designed for overnight monitoring.  Options: Screen on/off, auto-mute, audio alerts.
  • Streams to Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, Roku and other media players.
  • Set a weekly or monthly schedule using the camera’s DVR. 

WiFi Baby Review

As you can see, I mounted the WiFi Baby to our wall with the included mounting stand and screws. You can also mount the device to the ceiling or the self/free standing with the attachable rubber feet on the bottom of the stand. Adhesive clips are also included, so you make the power cord less visible by guiding it discreetly down the wall.

Installation of the WiFi Baby system with router and my computer was relatively easy.  I was able to do it myself when I typically rely on my husband to take care of things like this! WiFiBaby also provides MyWiFi Pro support for one year. So, if you ever need any help, expert setup assistance by phone or screen share is available by request.

The Wifi Baby 4 is available for purchase at local juvenile retailers and Amazon. I consider the price point very reasonable with the technology the baby monitors provides. To add, the monitor I bought 4 years go was the same price and not even half as good! 

Be sure to visit the WiFi Baby website for more information and follow the brand on FacebookTwitterPinterest, and YouTube

    The baby monitors are so different now from the ones I used when my kids were babies. I love that you can access your babies activities through your iPhone with this one.

  2. says

    Sure wish they had this when my babies were little. Crazy how technology changes in such a short time. I’m gonna share this with my pregnant friend! Bet she will love it.

  3. says

    Baby monitors have come so far in such a short time! Its amazing how quickly technology is progressing. I don’t have any kids of my own, but I do have fur babies…is it wrong that I kind of want one of these to keep an eye on my dogs?? lol

  4. says

    Video monitors are SO wonderful to have with kids! I used mine when they were babies, and then we had it in the playroom so that I could keep an eye on my super naughty boy 😉 I love how big the screen on this is– it would be so much easier to see what’s going on than it was on my tiny screen.

  5. says

    My brother has one and he said it is the best thing that was ever invented! I am not sure about that, but I will say that I am jealous that I didn’t have one when my son was young!

  6. Pam says

    Having a good baby monitor is so important for peace of mind when you have a baby. Baby monitors have come so far since I had kids. There are so many great options these days.

  7. Catherine S says

    This looks like a great monitor. I wish I had this when my son was little. I would have loved to see how he escaped his crib.

  8. Ryan Escat says

    Who ever made and invented the Wifi Baby is so amazing. It will help a lot to those parents who’s currently having a baby and will have. I was amazed.

  9. says

    I wish I would have had this when my kids were little. I was constantly getting up every time they were napping to check on them. At least with this, I could have rested easy knowing that they were okay. I think I will see about getting one of these for my friend’s daughter in law for her baby shower. They would really like something like this.

  10. Ann Bacciaglia says

    This would make an amazing baby shower gift for a friend of mine. I would have loved having one of these when my kids were little.

  11. Kathy says

    This would have been great to have when my girls were babies. I’d still use it now though. They’re 5 and almost 7 and I wouldn’t mind keeping an eye on them at times.

  12. CourtneyLynne says

    Oooooo that baby monitor looks fantastic!!! I swear I use my monitor more now with my daughter being a toddler than I did when she was a new born!

  13. Bonnie @wemake7 says

    That looks like a really great baby monitor. I have a friend that is needing one of these. I will tell her about this one.

  14. says

    Baby monitors have become so important as you could stay relaxed where ever you are. With technology at its best it is great that the app like WiFi Baby will be so easy to monitor our baby anytime anywhere.

  15. says

    I bet having a baby monitor really gives parents an added peace of mind when it comes to the safety of their lil’ ones. Love that your iPhone, iPad or Android device can transform into a monitor.

  16. Maggie Branch says

    I really appreciate this company’s dedication to security! This is a fabulous product it seems and as a mom I would totally use it.

  17. says

    Wow, this camera looks great. My girls are 3 and 4 now but I wish I had one like this when they were little – I was constantly going in and checking on them (no one but a mom understands the constant worry!). I would probably use this in their playroom now honestly – sometimes it is hard to tell a laugh from a cry!

  18. says

    Oh wow, they really have come along way since way back when you only had two walkie talkies essentially. LOL It really is incredible how far technology has come in the last 10, 20, 30 years. Who would have guessed 20 years ago you would actually be able to SEE your baby from a different room?!

  19. says

    This is awesome! My friend has a newborn and she does not have a baby monitor yet, so I will let her know about your post! What’s nice about WiFi baby is that you can use them for pets too! So this is something I would consider so I can monitor my lovable rascals at home! Thanks for sharing!

  20. Elizabeth O. says

    Technology is progressing so fast! Back in the day we can’t even do all this and I have twins too. This would’ve been a lot of help for me, being able to stream over WiFi without hassle. I hope this helps you a lot being a busy mom and all!

  21. Riza Smith says

    How cool is this. I want this baby monitor for my son I’m always busy doing the house choirs, Such a good baby monitor

  22. tauyanm says

    i wish i had this before! will give me a lot of time to do house chores, instead of going back and forth to check my daughter before

  23. says

    So neat! Baby monitors definitely have changed for the better over the past few years. For my next child I’d love a video baby monitor. When I am downstairs on the first level of the house it is hard to hear what is going on upstairs at times.

  24. Carmela Mempin says

    Wow, this is great idea! This would be perfect for my brother, he has a new baby and this is very useful to watch their baby.

  25. Rosey says

    That’s interesting that it has a DVR feature. I am so behind behind times that I didn’t know monitors use Cloud.

  26. says

    Base from my experience if you lose sight of your baby even for just couple of seconds something can happen to them specially when their crawling already. Having WiFi baby will surely keep me at ease.

  27. Melissa Bernardo says

    This looks like a great baby monitor. When my kids were babies, I could never find a monitor that I liked!
