Baby Monitor Recommendation?

Please recommend one? Im thinking one that can display on iOS is more convenient so I don't end up with an extra device to charge. I heard these things should come with breathing and cry monitors? Appreciate the help ladies & gents.

I just ditched my baby monitor and replaced it with a Wyze Cam. Couldn't be happier. More features for far less money

I also thought a lot, and finally got a nest cam!
I feel it should double up as a baby monitor as well as to see the baby when I'm at work! And I can have a two way talk as well!

Shaner - which model did you buy and do you think there are security issues with it like Foscam?

Thanks

There are a few schools of thought:

1/ Dedicated baby monitor
a) Video and sound
b) Sound only

2/ Wi-fi camera which can be used after the baby grows up

Angelcare is an example of a baby monitor with breathing/motion sensor. I haven't tried one but I think others on this forum have.

They are all effectively cry monitors as you can hear or hear&see the baby's room.

All internet cameras have security holes. Don't do it.

Get a dedicated monitor. Plus it's ready to bring to grandparents house, etc. I like my mpb36s from Motorola.

Yeah I really like my mbp36 too. The lullaby function has been really helpful putting my kid to sleep. Easy to take places and for grandparents to use.

We used Angelcare. Baby movement + video.

Baby movement is sensitive enough for breathing and heart beat monitoring. We had it go off twice. Not sure if those were true or false alarms, we didn't really care. We wanted peace of mind to prevent SIDS.
