Best Night Vision Baby Monitors iMore 2020

Gone are the days of peeking your head into the nursery to check on your child while tiptoeing around the room, hoping not to wake them. Today's night vision baby monitors with a clear view of your child are a must for parents, especially when baby is napping or playing. We tested them all, and these night vision baby monitors are the best in class.

Interchangeable lenses: Infant Optics DXR-8

Staff Favorite

The DXR-8 comes with an interchangeable zoom lens that pans, zooms, and tilts, so you get the best view of Junior catching his 40 winks. Other top-notch features include remote temperature display, a two-way intercom, 3.5" screen, long-lasting battery, and optional wide angle lens.

The singing cam: BAIESHIJI Video Baby Monitor

The BAIESHIJI baby monitor can check the temperature and humidity of the nursery,, communicate via two-way talk, and be paired with up to four cameras. My favorite feature though is the pre-programmed lullabies. Tuck baby in and this monitor will sing while he or she drifts off.

Budget-friendly powerhouse: Anmeate Video Baby Monitor

The tiny Anmeate remote monitor is so small that you can slip it in your back pocket. The HD night vision camera beams crisp color video and audio, has a temperature monitor, two-way radio, high-capacity battery, and money back guarantee.

Battery saver: Babysense Video

The ECO mode in the Babysense Video turns the LCD and speaker off to save battery power when all is quiet in the nursery. Other neat features include night vision mode, two-way talkback system, a 2.4" color LCD, a temperature alarm, camera that pans and tilts, and a low battery warning.

Long range signal: Babebay Video Monitor

With an operating range of 165 feet indoors and 985 feet outdoors, the Babebay monitor takes night vision to the next level. A 2.4-inch screen gives you a real-time video feed and the automatic night vision kicks in when the lights are down low.

Expandable system: UU Infant Willcare

I love the UU Infant Willcare for its growth factor. Have more than one child you need to keep in sight? No problem! This system can expand to up to four cameras, all of which are viewable on one 3.5-inch portable LCD.

2 Cameras in 1: AXVUE E632

A bright 5-inch LCD with a desktop kickstand is my favorite feature of the AXVUE baby monitor. Complete with two adjustable cameras, this monitor comes with two-way communication, temperature detection, and night vision.

Mobile-friendly: Cocoon Cam Plus

Sync the Cocoon Cam Plus to your smartphone and you can do away with the need to carry around a separate LCD baby monitor. See your baby's breathing rate with a BPM display and view a heat map of your child's movements as they happen.

For the tech-savvy: Nanit Plus

The Nanit Plus connects to your smartphone and spits out health data as well as up-to-the-minute video feeds. The Nanit Plus tracks sleeping patterns, live streams HD video to your phone day or night, and notifies you when your child is waking by popping up a notification.
