Best baby video monitor to buy?

Hi ladies

Any recommendations at all?

I quite like the idea of also seeing your baby on an app on the iPhone.

I really wanted one that would sync with my iPhone so I could get alerts on my watch. We got the BT one. The app is terrible! I often says it is offline so we have to use the separate monitor.

The other option was the Nanit. It seemed crazy to spend that much money though. I think the Arlo is also supposed to be good but it only works with your phone and doesn’t have a separate video monitor.

I guess it depends what other features you are looking for and how much you are willing to spend.

We use a Hive camera - I've watched my baby sleeping from all the way in Australia!
It also has movement and sound alerts, but be warned that you might get 12,000 notifications if you set this up!
The other nice thing is that it keeps little recordings of movements for 24 hours (without needing a subscription), so we have ours set up to see the room as well as the cot, and we've been able to download and keep some sweet / funny moments, that would otherwise have been lost forever
