And the Winner Is: Miku Smart Baby Monitor

Keeping an eye on baby at all times is paramount for parents, especially first-timers. The Miku wifi-enabled HD camera monitor streams real-time scenes and audio from baby’s nursery while tracking their breathing and sleep patterns. It’s meant to be installed over the crib, giving you a bird’s eye view of baby and allowing its integrated sensors to keep track of vitals (no wires or wearables necessary). A powerful processor works regardless of internet connection and a crypto chip keeps your data totally secure, giving you peace of mind. A companion app allows you to check in on baby from the other room or your neighborhood date night spot. Another major perk? The Miku’s sleek design blends into any nursery.

What We Love

  • The Miku monitors baby’s breathing and sleeping while keeping tabs on the room temp and humidity levels
  • A high-tech HD camera boasts a superb picture and excellent night vision, and the above-the-crib design gives you a clear picture of baby
  • The monitor detects sounds and motion, alerting you to changes via your smartphone
  • A two-way microphone allows you to comfort baby with your voice while built-in speakers play sleep sounds and lullabies
  • The Miku analyzes baby’s sleep, noting patterns over time and providing helpful tips along the way
