There are tons of baby cameras and monitors available on the market today, however we came across one that serves as a both a baby monitor and also a security camera at the same time.
In fact, the Foscam R2 is mostly sold as a indoor security camera and never really advertised as a baby camera. We bought the foscam indoor security camera for just this purpose but decided to try it out as a baby monitor one day as our existing baby monitor stopped working. From this day forward we quickly swapped out our baby monitor with the Foscam R2.
Here are some of the noted features we loved and why
2 way audio. We can hear and speak through the app (available for android and iphone). Comes in handy when hearing if your little one is crying. You can also calm them down with your voice
Clear 1080p wide angle with night vision. Great when you need that extra clarity in the image when monitoring your baby
Motion detection - Helps to detect when your baby is up in the middle of the night, sends an alert to your phone/tablet
Pan/Tilt/Zoom - you can move the camera in any position through the app.
Multipurpose - Works great as a nanny cam or a security camera.
Other Features - Remote monitoring, recording, push alerts
