By M. W. Byrne

Battery life, utility features, reliability, and connectivity range all weigh in when it comes to the 8 best baby monitors. So choose wisely.

Wi-Fi Monitors

A lot of baby monitors use your home network to send out data. Whenever possible, we prefer to avoid those that work over home Wi-Fi.

1

VTech DM221

Battery life among video and audio options is the best on the DM221 lasting 19 full hours on a charge.

2

Summer Infant In View

Technically, the In View has been discontinued, as Summer Infant has moved on to the In View 2.0, an inferior model, but still passable in a pinch.

3

Those that adore this model confess that it’s cheaply made and difficult to use. We’d also say it’s your best choice for about $100.

4

Motorola MBP36S

Beloved by many, there’s a better than even number of detractors for all Motorola baby monitors.

5

iBaby Monitor M6S

Plugging in your phone and granting wireless permission is all that is required to get the M6S up and running.
