Baby Monitor

baby monitor, also known as a baby alarm, is a radio system used to remotely listen to sounds made by an infant. An audio monitor consists of a transmitter unit, equipped with a microphone, placed near to the child. It transmits the sounds by radio waves to a receiver unit with a speaker carried by, or near to, the person caring for the infant. Some baby monitors provide two-way communication which allows the parent to speak back to the baby (parent talk-back). Some allow music to be played to the child. A monitor with a video camera and receiver is often called a baby cam.

One of the primary uses of baby monitors is to allow attendants to hear when an infant wakes, while out of immediate hearing distance of the infant. Although commonly used, there is no evidence that these monitors prevent SIDS, and many doctors believe they provide a false sense of security. Infants and young children can often be heard over a baby monitor in crib talk, in which they talk to themselves. This is a normal part of practising their language skills.

The first baby monitor was the "Radio Nurse" in 1937

 

When you become a mother you are connected to a second heart but you can’t always take it with you. The laundry, guests, groceries at the door, breakfast, favourite TV show, a long phone call and etc., are going to be not so easy from now on. It can get totally messed up sometimes and you might need someone to take care of your baby when you can’t be with him/her every time and hence comes Baby Monitors  to your rescue.

Baby monitor which are also known as the baby alarm is a transmitter and receiver system which is used to transmit and listen to sounds made by infants.

The device consists of a microphone which will be placed near the baby which transforms sound waves of your baby into radio waves just like your telephone/cellphone. A speaker is kept near the person who is taking care of the baby if in case he/she is not so near to the baby to keep an eye and ear on the baby.

Exclusive baby monitors which are a two-way communication system, i.e., a parent can speak back to the baby or sing (parent talk-back). Some allow music to be played to the child.

The main and primary use of a baby monitor is to allow parents or attendants or caretakers to hear when an infant wakes.

There are Baby Cams which monitors with a video camera and a receiver.

A baby movement monitor uses sensor pads placed under the crib mattress to detect movement if movement stops for more than 20 seconds an alarm will sound.

Smartphone apps allow a user to monitor a camera-equipped device, such as another smartphone or a tablet. Alternatively, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth can link a camera to a dedicated app on a smartphone or tablet. This means a smart device doesn't need to be left in the baby's room.
