And the Winner Is: Infant Optics DXR-8 Video Baby Monitor

As a new parent, you of course want to keep a watchful eye over your little one—but that’s hard to do if your baby monitor image is grainy, you can’t pan or zoom or you lose precious WiFi signal. The Infant Optics DXR-8 is a non-WiFi baby monitor that offers dependable views of your sleeping babe. It’s so reliable, in fact, that it’s earned a near-five star rating from almost 40,000 reviewers on Amazon, and after nearly three years of using this in our own homes, we’re definitely members of the fan club.

What We Love

• You’ll get outstanding views of baby thanks to the night vision feature (that’s not blurry or grainy!), pan, tilt and zoom options and interchangeable lenses to see even closer or get a wide angle view

• Additional nice-to-have features are really nice to have: A room temperature guage lets you see at a glance whether baby is comfy, two-way talk lets you tell your toddler to stop picking their nose and go to sleep (true story), the alarm function allows you to set reminders to check the monitor in two, four or six hours from now, and you get an impressive 10 hours of battery life

• For those wary of WiFi-based monitors, this one runs on a 2.4GHz channel with FHSS technology, meaning you get 100 percent digital privacy and safety from hackers; plus, there’s no system setup required, making it a great option for travel

Buy it: $167, Target.com
