The IdeaNext Baby Monitor is one of the most valuable safety devices you could ever own. It’s not only great for checking on your baby or pet, it also serves as a house watcher, car watcher, business watcher and security monitor for intruders. I’ve tested one in the bedroom and office in the back where a would-be home intrusion would occur for the past month and it’s doing it’s job incredibly well.The infrared is very impressive (turns on automatically when it’s dark) and you’ve got 24/7 protection.
The 1280X720 HD resolution is equally impressive–you can see great detail. I particularly like the fact that I can go anywhere in the world, check my phone and see what’s going on in the house, via the IdeaNext app – really priceless feature. It also hooks up to other alarm systems. This camera serves as a two way communicator. When you go out on date night you can rest assured your home is safe. With the 2 way communication technology you can speak with the baby sitter or hear anything untoward in your property while using your smartphone. The two way intercom audio has echo cancellation and noise suppression technology, the sound is very clear and smooth. Set-up is very simple and you can hook up to smartphones, tablets or a PC. You can take snapshots, it offers motion detection alerts, email alerts and saves everything in an IP Camera folder on your phone or computer.
The best features are the pan, tilt and zoom functions. You can scan the room/area remotely with the app. It’s great because you have a full range of sight. With fixed cameras, you just can’t do that. This is one of the best surveillance cameras out there for the price, I looked around a lot. It’ easy to hook up, it has great coverage, many features that others don’t have and the price is highly competitive. It’s worth it to buy several of these to get complete coverage of your house. After a month or so of testing I’m very happy with the system and the results.
