Here’s your chance to make good on the saying ‘mom has eyes in the back of her head.’ The camera allows you to pan, tilt and zoom in on baby day or night. Plus, with the choice of two different monitors, you can keep an eye on things no matter where you are in the house.


  • The system features a remote pan/tilt/zoom camera with a room temperature sensor and infrared night vision

  • You can choose between two monitors: a large 5-inch high definition parent unit, or the 1.5-inch mini monitor—the world’s smallest audio and video monitor—which is pocket-perfect for when you’re in another part of the house. And don’t worry about the batteries running out too soon: The mini monitor will last for eight hours, and the parent unit is good for 16 hours!

  • Talk to baby with the two-way audio intercom, or play one of the built-in lullabies or white noises to soothe baby to sleep

  • Audio and video is transmitted via a safe, static-free digital wireless connection, keeping baby even more secure


Whether you’re camped out in the living room or doing the laundry, relax knowing you can check in on baby wherever and whenever you choose.

Price: $300
