In only a few short months, I will be able to say that I’m a dad. It’s a strange feeling and there are a lot of different emotions involved because one day you’re hanging out with the wife and carefree and then literally the next day you have a tiny helpless human being that is totally dependent on you. While I enjoy these last few months of freedom, we’ve already started our baby shopping list. I recently wrote about the UPPAbaby Vista stroller which seems like a versatile unit and we’ll be featuring more products as the due date nears. When you become a new parent, you are going to want to invest in a good baby monitor system. There are many on the market and the Motorola MBP36 Remote Wireless Video Baby Monitor caught my attention.
Baby monitors function as an additional set of eyes and ears and allow you to keep a close eye on your baby while it hangs out in another room. The best thing is that the video feed is live so you know exactly what’s going on with your child. The Motorola MBP36 offers video quality that is better than average and has superior range while being relatively easy to use.
The Motorola MBP36 video monitor features a 3.5-inch color screen for easy viewing and an impressive range of up to 200 meters although that will depend on obstacles and interference from other electronics. The device also features automatic infrared night vision that has adjustable brightness, remote/manual zoom, video pant/tilt, room temperature monitoring, and even five prerecorded lullabies which can be controlled by the parent unit.
The device also allows for two way communication with a simple touch of a button. The parent unit features an LED sound activated lights which indicate when the baby is crying even if the volume is turned off. If you want to monitor more from one parent unit, Motorola allows you to monitor up to four cameras and all can be displayed on a quad screen or pick the scan option which changes between cameras at intervals. The Motorola MBP36 comes with one camera, rechargeable battery, parent unit, power cords, and a one-year warranty.
The Motorola MBP36 Remote Wireless baby monitor is a practical and affordable option at $156 on Amazon. This is just one model of the dozens of available options on the market. Depending on the features you want, you may find other monitors a better fit for your family.
