Baby monitor upgrades enhance transmission, viewing


Recent baby monitors are capable of sending information over the Internet. Many also adopt advanced sensors and camera functions.




  • Network transmission: The latest baby monitors have Internet capability enabling parents to receive video via computers, including tablet PCs, mobile phones and other Web-enabled devices even if away from home.
  • Improved viewing quality: To enhance clarity and definition, suppliers are enlarging screens to more than 3.5in and raising resolution from the usual 380x240 or 480x234 pixels to 960x234. Further, some high-end models use CCD sensors in place of CMOS types for less image noise.
  • Better monitoring capability: For a wider visual coverage, more companies offer rotating cameras or multiple-unit systems. Releases with 2-way audio and room-environment gauges are also gaining traction. The latter type includes temperature, humidity and smoke indicators.
  • Supplementary features: Recent products have larger memory, reaching 32GB at maximum, to enable adults to record digital videos. Some models, particularly those with at least 4in screens, double as multimedia players. These kinds of releases can support JPEG, WAV, MP3, MPEG-4, ASF and AVI formats.
