Nanit vs Arlo Wireless Baby Video Monitor For Smartphone & Iphone Review
The Arlo Baby has a high-definition video camera that lets you watch your baby on your smartphone in crystal-clear, 1080p HD.
You can pitch and zoom on the screen and set the viewing angle of the camera to what’s right for you. Arlo offers both a narrow and wide view.
The Nanit baby monitor has some of the same features as an Arlo, plus an app that offers more analysis of your baby’s sleep and development.
However, the Nanit baby monitor costs more than the Arlo, lacks the robust support and security of the Arlo app.
Moreover, it shares the same issues with connectivity that plague all of the other Wi-Fi–enabled monitors we’ve tested.
Its HD live video streams straight to your smart device. The device works even if your connection goes down.
Thanks to the unique wall mount, the Nanit baby monitor camera gives you a birds’s eye view of your baby.
A directional antenna keeps wi-fi signals pointed away from your sleeping baby, and Nanit even protects data in its own secure server.
You get a notice on your phone, which acts like a handheld monitor, when your child is awake, acting fussy or has fallen asleep.
