The BEST Video Baby Monitor Ever {and it’s cheap}!

MUST PIN!  The BEST and CHEAPEST video baby monitor!  Come see all the details at Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body {www.designertrapped.com}I am about to tell you about the best video baby monitor ON THE PLANET!  And it’s the cheap, too!  Buckle up folks, this is exciting.

First, let me tell you why this topic is on my mind.  I was recently reading a post on a blog that I love, Sawdust and Embryos, about Beth’s latest addition to her twin girls’ adorable “big girl” room.  Beth mentioned she was a bit concerned about her twin girls staying in bed once she moves them into their toddler beds from their cribs.  Yeah, I was right there with her when we made the switch.  I gave her my thoughts on what made our transition a HUGE success.  Below is exactly what I wrote to her:

We had a very easy and successful transition when we moved our twin girls from their cribs to their toddler beds (at 2 1/2 years) and then into their big girl twin beds on their 3rd birthday.

 I was super worried about them getting out of bed to play with each other. I think the key is that we have an awesome camera in their room and pair it with an iPhone app. It allows us to see them so clearly (sooooooooooo much better AND cheaper than the baby video monitors) and we can talk through it. We explained to them that big girls stay in bed and that mommy and daddy can watch them in the camera, so we would know if they got out of bed.

We also gave them each a pillow when they moved into their toddler beds, which they thought was AWESOME. We explained that pillows are for big girls and big girls STAY IN BED until we come to get them. If they got out of bed, we would have to take their pillows for that nap/night time.

Our girls are now 3 years 3 months old and they have only gotten out of bed ONE TIME. It’s seriously amazing. I am not sure what exactly motivates them to stay in bed, since we have not “threatened” taking their pillows away after the first couple of days. Maybe it’s the camera. Maybe they would have stayed in bed no matter what we said. Who knows?! I just know I was super worried about it and it was the easiest transition ever.

If you want info on the camera and app we use, shoot me an email. One of the best parts is that we can also take videos of what the camera is seeing through the app and we have some of the best videos of them singing and talking to each other. So fun!

Beth did email me and ended up ordering a camera of her own.  After that exchange, it occurred to me that lots of my readers have young babies and toddlers, so I want to share this revelation with you all as well!

I will first back up and tell you that we used a video monitor from day 1.  We purchased the Summer Infant Best View® Choice Digital Color Video Monitor for a whopping $190.  We positioned it directly over our twin girls’ cribs {which were side by side} and it worked reasonably well, until it broke about a year into using it.  So we bought ANOTHER ONE.  Again, it worked reasonably well, though the screen did crack and made it more difficult to see the picture.

Fast forward to when our girls turned 2 and we moved into our new house.  Their cribs were no longer positioned side-by-side, but were on opposite ends of the room.  We had to position the video camera much further away, and, without beating around the bush, we couldn’t see squat out of the video camera.  That thing has to be close to its subject, or it’s totally worthless.  But, at that point with them still in their cribs, we were not overly concerned about our inability to see them.  After all, they were in baby jail and had never climbed out.  They were safe.

Now, fast forward again to when our girls turned 2 1/2 and we converted their cribs into toddler beds.  Like Beth, we were TERRIFIED that they would get out of bed to play with each other.  We knew we had to watch them like hawks to prevent any shenanigans, but we did not want to have to sit in the room with them.  So, we needed a better quality video camera, and preferably one that we could talk through {“Get back in bed!  Don’t touch your sister!”}.  My research began.

You guys, my prayers were answered by this AMAZING POST by a wonderful blog, Joyful Abode, wherein the blog’s author shared all about a wireless video camera that you can pair with an iPhone app to use a baby monitor.  You are probably getting impatient at this point, huh?  You want details!!!!  Okay, okay.  We ordered an IP camera that connects to your WiFi network {just like a computer, printer, etc.} and does not have to be hardwired to work.  This is the exact camera that we use and ordered from Amazon is: Foscam FI8918W Wireless/Wired Pan & Tilt IP/Network Camera with 8 Meter Night Vision and 3.6mm Lens (67° Viewing Angle){*affiliate link}  You can see a photo of it below.

And this is the iPhone app we use {which is different than the one recommended by Joyful Abode–we tried both and strongly prefer this one}.  If you purchase the app and all of it’s optional features, it’s $8.00.

Best video baby monitor details by Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body {www.designertrapped.com}The wireless camera + the app = the best video baby monitor on the planet {in my humble opinion}.  Period.

Now, I am not going to tell you how to set up your camera and app.  The Joyful Abode post is amazingly detailed and will tell you all you need to know.  Just check out the Joyful Abode post here.  Emily did an amazing job.  I followed her installation instructions and had NO problems whatsoever.

What I AM going to tell you is why this set up equals the best video baby monitor and the reasons that we love it.

  • The app we use allows us to take photos and videos of what the camera is seeing.  These have captured some of our absolute favorite photos and videos.   It’s funny to hear what they say to each other when they are alone :)
  • The image quality you will get from this camera is shocking.  We get a clearer picture with this camera 12 feet away from our girls that we did with the Summer Infant monitor 4 feet away.  I am NOT kidding.  It will blow your mind.  The picture is crystal clear and is full color in the daylight.  Below is a sample photo that I snapped using the app this morning.

IMG_4275

When it is dark {at night or during the day if you use black out curtains for naps, like we do}, the camera uses infrared lights, so the picture will be in black and white but the quality is still fantastic.  Here is a photo I snapped tonight as I put my girls to bed and it was dark outside.

Now, to prove I am not kidding about how great the picture is given the distance at issue, here is a photo of where the camera sits on my daughters’ bookshelves:

And here is a photo to give you some idea of how far away the camera is from my daughter’s bed.  I took this photo standing beside Attley’s headboard:

MUST PIN!  The best video baby monitor!  Come get all the details from Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body {www.designertrapped.com}

  • One of our favorite features of the app we use is the two-way communication!  WOW!  We can hear them, and more importantly, they can hear us.  We have said, “It’s time to stop monkeying around and go to sleep” through the microphone more than a few times.
  • And here is a sample video for you that explains, with no words, WHY we actually need a video baby monitor.  This was taken this past week.  Ummmm, this is what I would call “shenanigans” during nap time, which required some immediate intervention.  But it was funny enough that Joe took a video through the app first.  This level of monkeying around was unprecedented for us.  Usually, they lay down and sing or talk to each other before they go to bed.   This was a whole new level of experimentation for them.  I will note that they stayed in bed.  I think they thought since they were still “in bed” that they could do whatever they wanted.  We have since cleared that up {we hope}.

Have I convinced you that this is the best video baby monitor your money can buy?  You have some questions, don’t you?  Well, I have tried to anticipate some of your questions, and will do my best to answer them below.

Q: Can you use the app to watch your baby/toddler while you are at work?

A:  Nope.  You have to be connected to the same WiFi that your camera is connected to to view your kids.  This is for security reasons.  As much as I would love to peek in on the girls from my office, it does give me peace of mind that not just anyone from anywhere can try to hack in and watch our girls.

Q: Is it secure?

A:  I really am not qualified to answer this, but can tell you that you do have to have the password to be able to use the app.  Between that and having to be connected to the same WiFi as the camera, WE feel it is secure to use.  You may feel differently.

Q: Can the app run in the background, so that you can still use your iPhone for other things?

A: YES!

Q: Can you use it as just an audio monitor?

A:  Basically, yes.  At night, you can put it on “night mode,” which turns the video feed off, but you can still hear the audio.

Q: Does the camera allow you to pan/tilt/change the viewing angle?

A: YES!  If your kids share a room and you cannot see one of the beds from one angle, you can use arrows in the app to wirelessly pan the camera to see your other kid!

The bottom line is that for less than $70 we have the best video baby monitor imaginable!  What do you think?  Are you going to try this or recommend it to someone else?  If you think this is a great option for moms, please help spread the word by sharing this post on social media and/or pinning it to Pinterest!

    Oh I needed this when Tootsie came along and we had to put out boys into bunk beds {nightmare!}. I so wish we would have had a camera to spy on them.

    Thanks so much for the info! Passing this along to my cousin who just had twin girls!

  2. says

    This is such a great posts! I literally LOL’d at the video of your girls. My day is coming SOON! Nick finally got ours set up, and tonight is the first time I’m spying on the girls! It’s SO creapy and fun at the same time! It’s really not necessary for us to watch them now when they’re confined, but when we move them to their toddler room, it’s going to be a whole other ballgame. THANKS so much for this suggestion! If I speak of it in a blog post, I’ll definitely link to this post!

    • says

      My pleasure, Beth! So glad you got your camera set up. It is a little creepy to see their eyes open, isn’t it? It’s totally like National Geographic night photography :) Glad you enjoyed the video of my monkeys playing around. Just WAIT until you see all of the funny videos you will get of your sweet girls with this camera!

  3. Brooke says

    Do you know if you can use two video cam on one iPhone app?? I have two kids that I would like to have two monitors?

    • says

      Hi Brooke! I am not positive, but I am fairly certain you can have two cameras with two different names and toggle between them. I do not, however, think you can have both “running” on your phone at the same time. Sorry I can’t be more helpful!

  4. says

    This is SO awesome!!! I can’t believe it can do all that for the price. I had no idea this was out there. We’re considering having another and the SECOND I find out (if we’re successful), my first move, after telling my husband, will be to scramble onto Amazon and nab that sucker!
    Oh, and can we just take a second to laugh hysterically at the girls’ video? That’s gotta be hard to discipline them back to bed when they’re being so dang cute in their “rebellion”. Love it!
    -Sandra

    • says

      Sandra, it really is an awesome option! It is hard to get mad at them when they are enjoying themselves that much. Especially when they are technically staying in bed. Ahhhh, the dilemmas of parenthood!

  5. Meagan says

    I have been using foscam cameras for 2 years now and I love them! I have 4 cameras stashed around the house. My husband was able to set it up to allow us to view the cameras when we are not at home and also allow Grandma’s to access the ones for our two babies and they love watching them go to bed. It’s especially nice since we have family living far away.
    I asked my husband to explain to me how he did it so I could share- but my brain literally turned to mush as he did. He said words like “dynamic DNS” and “port forwarding”. If you have a computer pro around- I’m sure they could figure it out too!

  6. Sarah says

    Hey, thanks for all this! I’m excited to get it set up! I ordered the camera and am getting the app now. I went to the link you have though and all it’s said was “Sorry!” It didn’t have a blog post. Do you know what happened to the installation instructions?
    Thanks!

  7. Asheley says

    Do you know if you are able to use it on an IPAD? Are you able to connect more than one phone into the camera as long as you have the password?

  8. says

    Thanks so much for linking to my tutorial on Joyful Abode! I’m really glad you found it so useful, and that you’re having such great success with your monitor too. We still use these, now in two rooms (playroom and bedroom), and I’ve switched to the Foscam Pro app, which is great.

    Such an awesome thing! And your kiddos (and their room) are adorable.

  9. Kara says

    do you know if this would work with an Android device? seems like there’s a lot of things for Apple devices I don’t cross over to the Android world

    • says

      Hi Kara! I don’t know that the exact app we use is available for Android devices, but in doing a quick search it looks like there are a ton of baby monitor apps for Android devices. Just be sure to select one that works with IP cameras! If you have an app and wifi, it should definitely work with an Android device.

  10. Hanna Mis says

    Hi, just started reading your blog with interest but have to say this entry left me feeling a bit uneasy. Totally not technical question and perhaps surprisingly – a moral one. Thinking back when I was a kid, I wouldn’t want my parents to watch me at all times, especially when I am playing with my sister, talking to her, etc. Also, some of my best childhood memories are mischievous night adventures with cousins that I am sure my parents wouldn’t have approved but these were so much fun!
    And I know these are your kids but they’re still little people. Isn’t it a bit invasive? What about their privacy rights, however small ones? Full disclosure, I’m expecting my first (and am from Europe), don’t have any plans to buy baby monitor – we decided we’ll just hear when the baby is crying. My sister who lived in a bigger house had an old walkie-talkie set to hear when her babies were crying but now at the age 2 and 4, she’s not using them anymore.

    • says

      Hi Hanna! Congrats on your pregnancy. I appreciate you taking the time to comment and express your concerns. I don’t know if it will impact your views at all, but we do not watch them on it all the time. We only have it on at nap and nighttime and even then we only open the video part if we hear crying or them playing around when they are supposed to be sleeping. Perhaps more importantly, they are VERY aware of the camera, so we do not even attempt to do it secretly. They love watching the videos of themselves that we take {like the one I included on this post}. They think they are hilarious! Best of luck to you in your adventure of motherhood!

  11. Lexi says

    Wow, I am so excited about this! So, can you run the app on your phone all night long? Or does it drain your battery having it on for that long? Also, you said the app can just run in the background….. So does it just turn the sound on when they make a noise so you can hear them? Sorry for all the questions, and thanks for the post!!

    • says

      Hi Lexi! Yes, you can run the app on your phone all night {that’s what I do}, but it DOES drain your battery, so I leave my phone plugged in all night. You can have it run in the background and can even set a “squelch level” so that it mutes background noise and you can only hear noise above a certain level. So, we have it set so that we can’t hear every little thing {like their white noise machine}, but can hear if they talk or start crying. It’s AWESOME! Let me know if you have any other questions!

  12. Jane says

    This is the best post ever! I have a one-and-a-half year old and up to this point, we have only used an audio monitor, but as she gets older, I like the idea of having a camera so I can check on her without having to open the door (especially when she’s falling asleep… opening the door would require me to start the bedtime routine all over again once she saw me!). I love that this is such an affordable option too. Camera is ordered – can’t wait to set it up and try it out. Thank you again!!!

    • says

      Hi Jane! So glad you liked the post and that you ordered the camera! I think you will LOVE it! Let me know what you think once you get it all set up.

  13. danielle m says

    Does it have to be an Apple product to use this app or can you use it on android as well? If it has to be Apple do you have any suggestions as to what app to use?

    • says

      Hi Danielle! I don’t know if it can be used with an Android, but my guess is that it can be with any app that works with an IP camera. The app I used for my iPhone is detailed in the post. It is called “Baby Monitor for IP Camera” and there is a screenshot of what the app looks like so you can find the right one. Hope that helps!

  14. says

    Hi i am a 19 yr old mother and i am wondering is the only way to view it on wifi there is no monitor that comes with it. Like not a screen thats available to set in the room? My daughter has lots of breathing problems so I really need the best and the cheapest..

    • says

      Hi Kait! There is no screen that comes with it. As far as I know the only way to view it is via wifi on a phone, tablet or computer. Best wishes to you and your daughter.

  15. Susan says

    Hi! We are expecting a little one in July, and we are seriously considering this as an option for the baby monitor. It’s hard to tell from the shot of your camera on the shelf but what, if any, cables have to be attached. What about the power cable, for instance? Also, does it have to be connected via Ethernet or is it WIFI? Our router is downstairs. Plus, I would like to keep from having wires running up the wall. Thanks so much!

    • says

      Hi Susan! The only thing connected to our is the power cable. It is wifi. Our router is all the way on the opposite side of the house and it works great. As I recall, you do have to connect it to your Ethernet to get it set up, but then you disconnect it and relocate it and it only has to have the power cord attached. I hope that helps!

  16. tara says

    you are so awesome for providing so much info! thank you! quick question.. someone said on the amazon reviews that you only can do audio through internet explorer web browser on a pc. do you do your audio through your app or do you have to do it through your computer? thank you so much!!

    • says

      My pleasure, Tara! Our audio and video both come through our app. We don’t use our computer for it at all (other than to get it set up in the very beginning). I hope that helps!

  17. Kayla says

    Hi!
    I have a few questions! Would the app work with 2 cameras? I have my 4 year old step son and I am due with my first in July. I would like to be able to watch both of them.
    Also, I’m not sure if someone has already asked this, but does the camera only work with iPhones? I have a Motorola Droid Ultra. I want a camera that has a very clear view like the one you have.
    Thank you in advance for your help!

    • says

      Hi Kayla! That’s a great question. I believe you can use it with two cameras, but I honestly am not sure how convenient it is to switch back and forth between cameras. I don’t think you can view them both simultaneously. I am confident there is an app that would work with a droid device, but I have never looked for one. Just search for a baby monitor app that works with IP cameras. Good luck!

  18. Kim V says

    Saw this on Pinterest a while back while we were getting ready to transition our almost 2 year old to her big girl bed. We had to reposition our “fancy” (and expensive) video monitor to be further away and the image was so bad we couldn’t tell where she was or even if she was in the bed! We bought this camera and just set it up tonight–WE LOVE IT!!! Not only does it have more features than our old monitor (2-way talk, pan and tilt), but the image is incredible! We’re buying another one for baby #2’s room! Seriously, best tip ever–we saved lots of money and got an even better product. I had to come back and thank you!!!

  19. Lindsey says

    Hi! I am so excited to try this camera out! Does it have some sort of motion detector on it as well, so that if a little one ventures out of his or her room, an alarm dings? If not- do you happen to know of a camera that does have that feature? Thanks for sharing!! :)

    • says

      Hi Lindsey! The camera does not have a motion sensor on it, only a sound sensor. I do not know of a camera that has the feature you are looking for–sorry!

  20. Heidi says

    Thank you for this post. I recently bought the camera and the app as you suggested. I wanted to see if you have any of the issues I have been having. I have to unplug the camera everyday to get it to show up in the app. Otherwise, my app does not show me a live feed. (Hopefully, that makes sense. Also, with the app did you have to upgrade for audio on both your iPhone and iPad? I bought it using my phone, but can’t get the audio to work on my iPad.

    • says

      Hi Heidi! It’s been so long since we purchased the app, it’s hard to remember, but I do think we had to purchase the audio upgrade for each device (both of our iPhones and our iPad). We NEVER have to unplug ours. I think the only time we have unplugged it is when we have packed it to take it with us for vacation. Did you follow the setup instructions from Joyful Abode? That is what we followed and it worked great. Every once in a while if our internet is acting up we have to go in the app settings –> click on the gear wheel icon next to name that we gave to the camera –> click configure –> click search –> then click on the camera name when it pops up –> click “yes” when it asks if we want to change the camera name to the unique name we gave it –> then click “ok” when it asks about the camera settings –> then click “save.” That seems to re-sync everything. But again, that happens once in a blue moon. So sorry to hear you are having trouble. I hope this helps!

  21. Stephanie says

    Just wanted to update those who are looking to purchase this. Using the link about the price is only $49.00. i think its because they have a newer model now but I jumped at this price! My little one is due in October, cant wait to use it :0)

  22. says

    Hi! I’ve been following your web site for some time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead
    and give you a shout out from New Caney Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the excellent job!

    • says

      Oh my goodness, thank you SO MUCH for your sweet comment! I am so glad you took the time to give me a shout out. I love “meeting” my readers! PS- I was born in Texas and much of my family still lives there :)

  23. says

    What a clever solution. I remember trying to get a video monitory when my daughter was little. It was +$300.00… great that technology is making these tools more accessible. And what adorable little girls:)

    • says

      Thank you, Seana! I think a lot of people use these for surveillance, but they are perfect as baby monitors with the right app. Thanks for stopping by from SITS!

  24. says

    WOW! I wish they had this when my son was that young! Great job selling this product- if I were going to have another one, I’d definitely look into this!

      Isn’t it awesome, Tonya! I wish we had known about it from the start and hadn’t wasted money on other cameras first. Thanks for stopping by!

  25. says

    Bravo! Man, did you cover all of the bases with this review! And the video of your daughters explains the banging around I hear in my 2.5 yo son’s room when we put him to bed for the night.

    Jeez, sounds like the kid is doing karate in there…

    Stopping by from SITS <3

      Thanks so much, Courtney! Your son probably is doing things you would never even imagine. It cracks me up to watch our girls. Thank you for visiting!

  26. says

    Happy SITS Day! This camera looks amazing ~ thank you so much for sharing! I pinned it before I could even make it down to comment. Can’t wait to read more!

      • Kelly says

        I loved reading about this camera! It sounds really awesome! But I was surprised to see so many negative reviews on amazon. Do you know why that is?

        • says

          I have no idea why, Kelly! We have had nothing but a fantastic experience with this camera. Perhaps people are unhappy with the app they are pairing the camera with as opposed to the camera itself??? I think much of our happiness is with the app as well. Hope that helps!

  27. Tiffany says

    Hi I’m so glad I stumbled across your blog! I’m excited to try this out. My question is… Our router is downstairs and our bedrooms are upstairs. How do you plug the monitor into a router from that far away without having a cord throughout the house? Also, we don’t have a cable jack in the room. Is there an easy way to still be able to use this as a baby monitor?

    • says

      Hi Tiffany! It is wireless, so after the initial set up, you unplug it from your router and you don’t need any cable connected to it–just the power cord. You can check out the Joyful Abode post that details installation instructions {there’s a link in my post} for more info. I hope that helps!

  28. pamela says

    love this review!! we used a great (though expensive) video monitor with my son and LOVED it but it unfortunately got damaged when we moved to a new house. now we’re in the market for a new one (or two) as my 16-month daughter just moved to a toddler bed and we’re going to put a 6-month old in with my almost-3-year old… i’m a ball of nerves on these big moves!!

    my biggest concern is this… we don’t have a way to hide a video camera’s power cord in the room and with these kids running loose, i know it will be a strangulation hazard. short of moving the outlets up to the ceiling, i’m at a loss. it seems every good video monitor i’ve found requires a power cord for the video camera (though the monitor is generally battery-operated). is that the case for this one, too?? i feel like i’m searching for the holy grail of baby monitors and it doesn’t exist!

  29. Vanessa says

    Hi I loved this post it was very helpful. My husband and I are expecting our first in September and I wanted to know if this is compatible with Android phones? Thanks!

    • says

      Hi Vanessa! Congratulations on your pregnancy! I do not know of a specific Android app, but search for a baby monitor app that works with an IP camera. I am confident you will find something!

  30. Vivian says

    We are looking into getting this monitor. It looks great and the price is just right. :) Since I will be using this with a newborn- I’m just wondering if the monitor alerts you when the baby is crying? or do I have to have the phone on? Does it have motion sensor too?

    I’m hoping that as long as I have the app running in the background that there will be some way of it alerting me- right?!?

    nervous mama,
    ~V

    • says

      Hi Vivian :) Yes, the app runs in the background and you can set the noise sensitivity so that you receive “alarms” when the noise reaches a certain level. For a newborn, I probably would have it set on super sensitive {I was a nervous mama, too}, but with toddlers, I don’t want to hear every single thing, just crying. So, your phone has to be powered on, but the app can run in the background. It does drain the battery, so I leave my phone plugged in on my nightstand at night. There is no motion sensor. I hope that helps!

  31. Andrew says

    Tasha, great post. I’m a soon to be dad, and a bit of an electronics geek. I just wanted to stress that it is absolutely possible to have a secure remote connection to your home IP cameras, though it does involve a couple of things a previous poster mentioned, a Dynamic DNS and port forwarding. There’s a ton of information available on these topics, so I won’t go into too much detail. Many cameras actually come with the capability of a built-in Dynamic DNS, which makes it even easier. I think the misconception of IP cameras being easy to hack is because many people do not change the default password (typically “password” or “12345”).. Changing the default user name and using a strong password are a great start to making your home’s IP cameras difficult to hack.

    • says

      Congrats on your baby on the way! And thanks so much for clarifying that for people who are worried about it. I am certainly not an expert, but we DID change our password, so I am glad to know we got that part right. Thanks again for taking the time to comment!

      • Andrew says

        Tasha, thanks for the reply. I wanted to provide some follow up information for anyone reading this. If you do enable remote access for your camera, please make sure your camera supports password encryption; this ensures that any eavesdropping hackers cannot see the un-encrypted password as it is sent over the internet. The Android equivalent (tinyCam Monitor) to the iPhone app you mention has an option to enable the use of an encrypted password, and I would assume the iPhone app has this setting available as well.

        The Foscam camera model referenced in your post added password encryption in firmware update 11.37.2.54, so for anyone that has this camera, please make sure your firmware is this version or later. If it is not, you may consider updating to the latest firmware to enable this important security feature.

  32. Ahou says

    Thanks Tasha, lots of useful information. When I looked at the reviews for this camera on Amazon, some customers had mentioned that when using the WiFi, the camera will reset itself, making it useless. After reading your blog I was planning to purchase this camera and use it as a baby monitor. Have you tried the WiFi feature and do you know how the resting issue can be resolved? Thanks!

      Hi Ahou. We use it exclusively with WiFi and have not had problems with it resetting itself, but a friend of mine that very recently purchased it is having exactly that problem. My best guess is that it has more to do with the WiFi itself than the camera. In other words, if your WiFi is spotty, then it may cause the camera to reset. Fortunately, we don’t have that problem. I hope that helps some!
