Happy with this camera, easy setup, easy to use, clear video and audio, excellent functions

My husband and I are expecting a baby in less than a month … we have the camera all set up in the nursery; all we need now is the baby!

This camera is so easy to set up and works great! The sound quality is pretty good and the HD video is exactly what I was expecting.

10. Foscam F18918W Nanny Cam

Foscam F18918W wireless IP camera - foscam reviewThe Foscam F18918W nanny cam doesn’t have all of the features you might want in a nanny cam, but it rates highly because customers love this little camera.

So the Foscam F18918W comes with IR night vision and pan & tilt, but it only has audio (not 2-way communication), and only has motion alerts, not sound as well. You can store your real time videos to your PC or to cloud storage so that is a huge bonus, and the images are very high quality and crystal clear.

 

What do customers say about the Foscam F18918W nanny cam?

Just follow the directions and it works like it should. The camera is very clear and even at night, it works like a charm.

This is a lifesaver! Much cheaper than buying a baby video monitor, very convenient to check on my son.

The camera has worked perfectly since the day I got it. I added a second one to monitor another room on the house.

I have recently begun to transition over to foscam cameras as a result of trying this camera. Good picture and easy set up. IPCam pro for android works well with these with just a couple of setting changes.

10.   WIFI Baby 4.0 nanny cam

WiFi Baby 4.0 - WiFi Baby monitor reviewsThe WIFI Bay 4.0 is the updated version of the WIFI baby 3.0, but it rates lower because customers seem to have more problems setting this nanny cam up than with the earlier version (customer support is awesome).

So with this nanny cam you have an SD card slot, high precision night time vision and exceptionally high quality images (the best feature of this nanny cam).

You also receive sound and motion alters on your mobile devices (even your Apple watch) and you can have up to 4 cameras on the system – so you can cover a lot of rooms in your home.

 

What do customers say about the WIFI Baby 4.0 nanny cam?

The set up on the computer and both Samsung S3 and S4 smartphones was relatively easy using the website guides. I’m not an IT person but I am a layperson’s tech savvy, and even though I didn’t understand exactly what I was doing when setting up the tinyCam Monitor Android app, I was done within 30 minutes.

If you are looking for a baby monitor that has clear audio and clear picture, this is your camera. I was shocked at the audio. There is literally no static whatsoever on it like the other camera I bought first.

I bought this wireless camera so I could view my mom while at work. It has been a lifesaver and has reduce my anxiety about my mom being with caretakers. With a touch of the app I can view what’s going on in the house at all times.

4.   iBaby M6 Nanny Cam

iBaby M6 WIFI nanny cam with audioThis top of the range iBaby M6 nanny cam is a great little nanny.

It has temperature and humidity sensors, HD 720P video with night vision, two-way communications (plus echo cancellation), pan & tilt (360 degree vision), a digital zoom and an SD slot.

You can sing a lullaby to help your baby drift off to sleep or play them one of your favourite tunes as well.

You can take as many snapshots as you like and keep them safely stored on the cloud, and up to 4 people can all access the live feeds at the same time. You even have sound and motion alert notifications on your mobile devices.

Add to all of this a fast, hassle free 60 second setup on both Androids and Apple mobile devices, as well as full access on 3G/4G/LTE and WiFi, and you have everything you could possibly need in a wireless nanny cam.

 

What do other customers say about the iBaby M6 nanny cam?

I love love love that the monitor is able to turn and I can basically see the whole room easily. I just need to swipe my finger on my phone screen. I don’t need to adjust the monitor angle manually and then check where the viewfinder is, I can do it from anywhere in one second.

The iBaby M6 works very well, in light and in darkness. It is easy to point the camera via the smartphone interface, just swipe with your finger. I also like the ability to adjust the alert sensitivity for both motion and sound.

I love all of iBaby’s features, but most of all the fun part of it. I can’t stop taking videos and photos of my sleeping baby without going into her room and disturbing her sleep. My baby girl loves listening to the stories and songs stored in the app library. My husband loves wishing her good night through the app if he’s not at home in time for her nap time.

5. Fosbaby Nanny Cam by Foscam

Fosbaby by Foscam WIFI nanny camMy number 6 pick is this really cute Fosbaby nanny cam by Foscam.

It comes in either blue or pink (pink is a little more expensive), has HD 720P video an advanced video compression, as well as night vision, an ambient temperature sensor and a wide 90 degree viewing.

You also have sound and motion alerts on your mobile devices, an SD card slot, 2-way communication and it can play lullabies to help your baby drift off to sleep.

The Fosbaby also has a very easy setup procedure, a recording scheduler, secure encryption and free cloud storage. The only difference between the Fosbaby and the iBaby M6 is that the Fosbaby doesn’t have pan & tilt or a digital zoom.

 

What do other customers say about the Fosbaby nanny cam?

I was honestly just expecting a video monitor but this was much, much more. The monitor worked out great. We have a android tablet as well as a iPad. We could connect both of them on there as well as view and record form our PC. We could also set a motion sensor, noise sensor and have it automatically record when these sensors were triggered.

I did not expect so many features to be bundled into this camera. I love that there is no monthly fees to view my camera or use the application. This is by far the best picture I have seen on a camera.

Before we had this monitor we used to wake our baby up because my wife turned on the light. This camera was the perfect solution. The lullaby function is also awesome because if we’re unable to reach her and use this setting, she’s often asleep by the time we get to her.

D-Link wireless camera - DCS-855LThe D-Link DCS-855L nanny cam has an SD card slot, 2-way communication, pan & tilt, a digital zoom, a temperature sensor and it plays 5 pre-set lullabies.

This is the top of the range of the D-Link nanny cams and has all the features you need.

You also have sound and motion alerts on your mobile devices, the nanny cam can be powered by an external USB battery (great for travelling or when the power goes out) and you have 720P HD video.

The reason that this nanny cam rates number 4 is because customers tend to have some problems with connectivity and the app seems to be troublesome to some customers ( some have been using the wrong app – which caused the problems).

Customer support are really good and are happy help out to solve any problems.

 

What do other customers say about the D-Link DCS-855L nanny cam?

I read some of the other reviews for this product and after getting this in my hands, I have to say maybe some of the users are just not following the instructions correctly. This baby monitor is so easy to setup. I set the DCS-825L up in less than 5 minutes while laying in bed!

It actually records video if you want, and you can save the videos straight to your phone. This thing is incredible. D-Link made a reliable camera that changed how I viewed my little one forever.

This monitor is fantastic. It is very high tech, but I found it super easy to setup and install the app on my android phone. I love that I can speak through the built in microphone, can start playing music if my daughter starts to wake up, and that it has a thermometer built into it.

10. D-Link DCS-930L Nanny Cam

DCS-930L nanny cam with audioEven though this is another nanny cam with audio only, it is in my Top 10 because customers rate it very highly. With the DCS-930L you have a very basic nanny cam with an optical zoom, cloud storage and motion alerts.

As I said, it is basic and it doesn’t even have IR night time vision, but if you already have a baby monitor at home for might time monitoring, this isn’t a problem. So if you want a high rated nanny cam that is less than $30, then this is the one for you.

You can access live video recordings on your mobile devices, and there are no monitoring fees and no contracts for the cloud storage.

 

 

What do customers say about the DCS-930L nanny cam?

This web cam works just as expected. It’s great to have as a nanny/ dog/ security cam because it can be viewed from anywhere in the world through the website or the app on my phone. This model does not come with night vision like some of the others in this brand but the day vision seems to work just as well as the night vision ones.

We have a home in the south and the north. Both houses are equipped with 2 each of these cameras which we have had for 2 years now. They work just fine and can see fine with the light on with a timer in the evening.

Similar products were so much more expensive only because they were labeled “pet cam” or “baby cam”. Its not a super high resolution, but I can see everything clearly and it does everything I need! Couldn’t be happier.

I’ve used this model since 2011 to watch my Dad with Alzheimer’s without having to be in the same room with him 24/7. 5 years in, and not one problem.

10.  WIFI Baby 3.0 nanny cam

WiFi Baby 3.0 - WiFi Baby MonitorThe WIFI baby 3.0 has VGA video, a 60 x 45 degree viewing angle, night vision, an SD card slot and sound and motion alerts on your mobile device.

It doesn’t have a whole lot of features, but it rates so well because customers really like the high quality images and the customer support.

Despite this being a great little nanny cam, customers do state that they have a problem with the setup – but they also state that the customer support people are awesome and talk you through the entire setup. This is one of the reasons that this nanny cam rates so highly is because of the great customer support.

 

What do other customers say about the WIFI Baby 3.0 nanny cam?

An excellent baby monitor/nanny cam!!! It has really helped with transition back to work after maternity leave. I can observe and the baby from anywhere via an app on my phone. Picture is clear, in color, and you can even zoom in (there’s sound too!).

The resolution is pretty good. I am using it as a granny cam.

I purchased one last year when my daughter was born. I was so impressed by the camera and their customer service, I purchased another one!!

Camera is awesome. Customer service is even better. Networking isn’t an easy process but I called and set an appointment and the representative that called me back had it up and running within 15 minutes.

5. Foscam F19816P Nanny Cam

Foscam F19861P wireless IP camera - foscam reviewThis is a very versatile DIY home surveillance nanny cam at a very affordable price. It has 2-way communication, pan& tilt, IR night time vision, SD card and cloud storage and email motion alerts.

You don’t have a digital zoom with this nanny cam, lullabies or a temperature sensor. It is however a very good quality camera with HD images and it is very easy to setup.

The reason it comes out close to the top, even though it doesn’t have all of the functionality of some other nanny cams is because customers have given it a high 4 or 5 star rating.

One of feature of this nanny cam, which makes it very popular is that you can turn off the audio recordings – a point which is very relevant in States where audio recording is illegal.

 

So what do customers say about the Foscam F19816P nanny cam?

I love these cameras! they are so awesome and I feel safe and secure I can monitor my house on my iPhone and i also get emails when someone is at my door!

Great camera for the price! Set up was so easy. 4 steps and done. So far the app works great. Unpacked it, plugged it in, downloaded the app, scanned the image and boom, done. Highly recommended if you want to keep an eye on your house, kids, or pets.

We are very happy with this product so far! We purchased this product as a monitor for our baby room – it was highly recommended to us by a family member.

DCS-5029L wifi nanny cam with sound and motionThe D-Link DCS-5029L is a great little nanny cam with lots of features.
