Monitor Your Baby Monitor
It probably isn’t a surprise to anyone that <a title="Baby Monitors" href="http://www.atgstores.com/baby-monitors_2458.html" target="_blank">baby monitors</a> have a come a long way since the glorified walkie-talkies of old, particular in the rise of our new surveillance state. Spying one on another has grown into an industry unto itself – and naturally babies have been swept into the dragnet.
Just kidding! Keeping an eye on your tyke is a smart idea, of course, and more technological advancement in this area generally results in <a title="Baby Health & Safety" href="http://www.atgstores.com/health-safety_2488.html" target="_blank">safer babies</a>. Baby monitors won’t do all the work, but they can definitely help.
So, what’s new with monitors these days? Let’s take a look at some of the cooler features.
Yep, now you can even track your baby’s movements – no more sneaking into the fridge at night for extra helpings of baby pudding. Again, joking. Baby movement monitors actually sound the alarm when there’s <em>no movement</em>, which is definitely something you’ll want to know about.
<strong>Temperature Display </strong>
Now you can find out if your baby’s core temperature rises or falls below the hallowed 98.6ºF so you can nip sickness in the bud! Right? No … although that might be the next thing on the horizon. These gauges simply (awesomely?) measure the ambient temperature around your sleeping angel so you can rest easy knowing the little one is dozing in comfort.
<strong>Video Monitoring / Recording</strong>
Okay, so this isn’t too new, but it’s still pretty cool and some new video features have been added. Many baby video monitors allow you to check in via your mobile device, and some cameras can capture video and be moved remotely to catch baby in the act of sleepcrawling.
Some baby monitors take surveillance to a level bordering on remote parenting with talk-back features, remote-controlled ambient light settings and preprogrammed lullaby playback capability. It’s not that this whiz-bang stuff is bad – in fact, it’s quite good – but good parents know there is no substitute for the real thing.
