Monitor your baby outside on you iPhone or laptop!

Many parents are looking for a baby monitor with Internet access or an Internet baby monitor, so to speak. Most baby monitors work within your property - you set a camera in your baby's bedroom and keep the receiver (parent unit) somewhere near you, so you can check up on your little one every couple of minutes. But there are many parents that would love to check on their babies while being at work or shopping. That's where baby monitors with Internet access come in handy - they make the video stream from the nursery available on the Internet, so you can access it wherever you are, provided you have Internet access and a device that can open websites and play video stream.

Important information about internet baby monitors

How Internet baby monitors work?

It's pretty simple. Firstly, you need to have internet access at home. Besides that, some Internet baby monitors require a router. Setting an internet child monitor up is pretty simple - you place the nursery unit where it's needed, connect the whole system to the Internet and you're done. Connecting the monitor to the Internet should be pretty easy - you should follow the guidelines from the instruction of the device. You'll probably also need to install some software that allows the baby monitor to upload data to the Internet.

When you're done, you just need to open a web browser, head over to a certain website, log in using given credentials and you can watch and hear what's going on in your baby's room. The whole process will be described in detail in the instruction (it depends on the actual device). Of course only you have access to your camera's footage. This way you can access the footage using a computer, smartphone or a tablet while being anywhere in the world, assuming that you have internet access. If you'd like to, you can grant access to the footage to your friends or family members.

How to find a baby monitor with Internet access?

It's not that easy. In fact, it's quite difficult to find one that works really well and parents are really fond of it. There is the Peek Plus Internet Baby Monitor System by Summer Infant. Make sure to find some customer reviews before buying the system.

There is also another way to buy a baby monitor that allows you to watch your baby online - you can buy a normal camera that allows you to view its footage via local network or Internet. The downside of this solution is that you don't have a parent unit (receiver showing the video) and you have to use a web browser to view the video. That can be an upside though, many people carry a smartphone with them all the time, so it's not a problem to open a web browser and access feed's URL.
