Recommendation for two camera baby monitor

Hi all looking for a baby monitor that has two cameras I can look at and ideally view on my phone too? I have two children with additional needs so the reliability / quality of item is as important as price. Thanks in advance x

I'm not sure if it's any use but I use a tapo security camera and have the app set up on an iPad, you could use any tablet or maybe an old phone to set up the app to constantly steam a feed. It was also less than €30 for the pan and tilt camera so a lot more affordable and quality is as good as any baby monitor.

We have the babysense monitor that has a split screen with two cameras. It is very reliable, but doesn't operate on wi-fi though (which was a selling point for us), so you won't be able to get it on your phone

I have a Nanit which is very good. Camera in each child's room and I have the app on my phone with a split screen so I can see both at the same time. Is this what you mean? Not cheap but would recommend.

Should say, I had to buy 2 cameras, it was sold as a '2-camera'

We had nooie camera, ie was cheap at about £50. Came with no camera screen but you can add to any screen you like. So dh and I could use on phones or iPad.

You could buy old iPads and just use as large clear screens to many brands of cameras. That’s way you get clearer image than most grainy baby cams, and can use on phones also.
