The Summer Infant Baby Monitor is the first ever touch screen video monitor. It’s also on the top of our list for baby monitors as it has tons of nice features and works great. The Summer Infant Baby Monitor has a generous 3.5″ touch screen LCD panel. This gives you the ability to interact and keep an eye on your baby, or your older children, using the same technology used in smart phones today.
With just a touch of the screen, you can adjust the brightness, pan/scan around the room and even zoom in if you need to. This can be super helpful if you think your baby is trying to put something into their mouth. You then zoom in and see it’s just their finger. Few, what a relief!
Summer Infant Baby Monitor Camera
You can remotely activate the super quiet camera. This allows you to reposition the viewing angle to see your baby at all times. Remember when we said it has a lot of nice features, well, how about night vision. Now you can check on your baby even in the dark. Very Cool!
The Summer Infant Baby Monitor camera also comes with a back-up battery pack, so in the event of a power outage, you can still feel safe knowing what your baby is up to or how they are sleeping. Lastly, the Baby Touch includes a two-way talk-back feature. Take a look at the following customer review and see how helpful this can be.
The Summer Infant Baby Monitor is near the top end as far as price goes, but all of the features are ones you’ll use. If you want to feel very secure in knowing how your baby is sleeping or what your older children are up to, this is definitely the best baby monitor for you.
Summer Infant Baby Monitor – Customer Review
“This thing is great. I’ve got two girls who are fresh from the crib and now are in their own beds… in the same room. Trying to get them to sleep has been extremely difficult. At one point, they got out of bed, climbed up the front of their dresser and managed to pull it down on themselves. That was it… time to get a monitor.
So, out comes the credit card and I get the best one. And, wow. Just… wow.
I stuck it up on the wall in their room in about 1 minute. Walked into the other room with the monitor, turned it on… that was it. 100% configured.
On the screen, I can control the camera, moving it up, down, left right, etc.. it is great. Even at night, there is night vision!
And that’s not all. Here is the best part: Sound. The thing is so good, I can hear them breathing as they sleep if I turn it up. AND… it gets better. There is a speaker on it, so you can really get big-brother on them.
Here’s an example: My younger daughter starts getting out of her bed to go mess with her sister. I catch it out of the corner of my eye while the monitor is sitting on the counter. I push the button, “Get back in your bed Marguerite!”. Bam. She spins around and gets back in her bed.
That would normally have resulted in both of them getting up and playing around a bit before I even heard it and stormed down the hallway. Now, just a quick sentence and it’s over without me getting up.
Moreover… they know it’s there and immediately discovered that they no longer have to scream my name when they want something. They just say, “Daddy… are you there? Daddy… Can I go get a glass of water?” And I can calmly tell them OK without screaming myself.
I wish I could give the product more than 5 stars.”
