We had a Best View by Summer Infant that we received as a baby-shower gift. Now we’d like to upgrade. The primary feature we’d like to get is WiFi remote viewing. Therefore, we’ve also expanded our search to include webcams not specifically designed/sold as “baby monitors”. Hopefully, we can use the solution as a nanny and home-security cam in the future. I’ve seen a lot of cool features, but not all together in one product that meets my requirements. The new monitor must have WiFi remote viewing that is accessible (for free!) via smartphones and tablet devices, at least 1-way audio, night-vision, and pan/tilt/zoom. It would also be nice to have alternate connectivity options (such as Bluetooth — for local viewing in case our WiFi connection goes down), 2-way audio, temperature/humidity monitoring, and the ability to view multiple cameras/feeds. I’m not too concerned with lag, video recording, or the ability to play lullabies. Thus far, I’ve researched about 15 different options, but wanted to ask the Slashdotters for their opinion, as well. Any thoughts on baby monitors?"
