The 8 Best Video Baby Monitors

Based on 4,697 Influenster Reviews

We’ve come a long way from having to quietly open the door just a crack to check up on our baby while they sleep. And while a traditional audio monitor is good, a video monitor is even better for checking in on your baby at a moment’s notice. Being able to physically see your baby can relieve a lot of stress when you’re not in the same room. It makes sense that parents would want the very best, and there are (understandably) many things to consider when looking for one. Features like video monitor quality, range (how far you can be for uninterrupted viewing), and two-way communication capability are some things to keep in mind when shopping for the best monitor to keep an eye on your little one. Shopping for one now? We just made it a lot easier to find the one by rounding up the top-rated video monitors parents have reviewed and loved.

Best purchase ever! When we switched my daughter into her crib in her own room I had severe anxiety. This was the only thing that alleviated it! My daughter is 14 months now and I still use it. Great picture, lots of adjustable settings, ability to add multiple cameras, and we haven’t had an issue in the almost 12 months that we’ve been using it. There are more expensive brands and models but this one works just fine. I can see her and hear her and that’s what matters to me. ...read more

We were going recommended this monitor with our son and we love it! It has a long reach and a clear picture. I love that it has lullabies that play through the camera for my little one. We have used this every day for night/naptime for 2+ years without any issues. Secured monitor and long battery life. ...read more

Four years strong with this monitor! We live it. I like that I can see my kiddos and not just hear them. My first monitor died only because my oldest son dropped it in a drink... I already had another for my youngest son’s room. It is a great product. ...read more

We have used this since day one of bring our little one home. Now he is in a big boy bed and having the monitor still is wonderful. I love the 2-way talk now because i am able to talk to him and have him hear me instead of yelling. The picture is great on the monitor. I really like the temperature feature so you know if its getting to hot or cold in the room. The battery seems to last a while. Really happy with this product.   ...read more

I love these baby monitors! I bought an extra monitor for in my living room as well. It is full color video on a 4.3 inch monitor so it is nice and big. It tells you the room temperature too which is really nice! No worries if baby is too hot or too cold. I also really like that it is a wide angle lense so you can see a bit more compared to other monitors on the market. Other features are that you can talk back and forth with baby and there are soothing emoldies that play in babies room or in our living room! You can mount these on your walls and can have the base up to 1000’ away!!  ...read more

I really like this baby monitor.  I put one camera above the baby's crib and one camera above the baby's pack and play so that no matter where she is I can keep an eye on her.  Its really handy.  I didn't have video monitor for my first two children and I really like that I can actually see what she is doing instead of just hearing it.  It was really easy to install and setup.
