[Amazon.ca] Nanit Pro Smart Baby Monitor and Floor Stand $399

All time low according to camels for this combo (pro monitor + floor stand).

Great for the new parents out there.

it has been this price before, so it doesn't hurt to wait if you wanted to, but with that said, BF is still like 4 months away.... and nothing is guaranteed in this world :)

I’ve been using it for 2 years. Don’t love it for the price we paid. If you search up my old posts from my profile you’ll find a more thorough write up of our experience. I just don’t have time right now to find it for you.

Wow that's a steep price for a baby monitor, just saying.

I have the Nanit Pro as well. Have they released a new version under the exact same name? If I recall the “Pro” is really just version 2 and came out shortly before I purchased. It’s not a horrible monitor but it isn’t good enough to justify its costs in my opinion.

When I first got it it wasn’t working well at all with my mesh network and their advice was that I stop using a mesh network. That’s an insane “fix” for a company that is essentially a technology/software company in my opinion. They should be far more in touch with current technology.

I will say I had 1 positive experience with customer service after 3-4 bad ones. I finally was fed up and was pretty firm with them about my dissatisfaction and they sent me the secondary tabletop style mount which was helpful for the few times we stayed at other places.

Maannn, we were in the market for all types of camera before my daughter was born. A LOT of gimmicks out there - heart beat, room temp, ballbalab. I told my wife I have an extra Wyze camera just sitting collecting dust. It is now our go to. Bought it when it was on sale, i think it was 45$ for 2 cameras (V2 version)

Just use a wyze camera, stick it somewhere safe and youre good to go i promise.

If for some reason you receive one that is open box, just send it back. Once set up, Nanit cameras do not have a reset on the unit. They're locked to the account unless that user took the time to delete the camera from their account and we know how tech-savvy the average person is. They say it's for security (because someone might reset the camera when they're left alone in your house!) but it's just unnecessarily creating ewaste.

My 2 cents. Before buying the Nanit, please read through their privacy policy and make sure you're happy with it. I was not.

https://www.nanit.com/ca/legal/privacy

As a camera that is on all the time, picking up audio from around the house 24/7, they seem to not care too much about the protection of your data. The policy is pretty careful with its word but says they have access to all of your data and can use it however they want to, and cannot guarantee the security and safety of your data from being stolen. Grimacing Face They use very generic words to cover all their bases. This is very unlike other tech companies's privacy policies.

No one I know who got the Nanit seems to like it.
I ended up going for a cheapish HD non wifi camera with monitor for my regular use and then a wyze 3 with stand for when I get to checkin when I'm working.
Swapped the ring light out on this stand for the wyze cam, handy as it has a Flexible neck to get the perfect angle.

As an owner of one, it is handy to have the sleep tracking and ability to have multiple parents on the account and able to sign in but it is a steep price.

Just to follow up on that, while I agree with the agreement not being ideal. There is a button in the app to simply turn off the camera whenever it is not in use.

Edit:Spelling
