Smart nurseries are a growing tech trend. From smart cribs to video monitors, we’ve rounded up five must-have smart nursery trends for your consideration.
Nest Cam Indoor Security Camera (from $190)
This camera works in harmony with an accompanying app, which you download after the camera is plugged in. One of the great things about the Nest is that it has a built-in speaker and microphone, so you can talk and listen through the app. The night vision capabilities are comprehensive, and you receive 24/7 live video in 1080p HD. You also get a free trial of Nest Aware, which allows you to record the video feed and store it in the cloud.
The Hatch Grow Smart Changing Pad features a plastic base, with a foam top and safety belt, that is comfortable and wipeable, so no changing pad cover is required. It is designed to track your baby’s weight, feeding
SNOO Smart Sleeper ($1,160)
This basinet is designed for babies from newborn to six months, or until your baby can get up on her hands and knees. You place your baby in a fixed swaddle position, which keeps her on her back, and if your baby begins to cry, the SNOO respond with white noise and gentle motions that mimic the womb, to ensure that your baby gets her best sleep.
Naya Smart Breast Pump ($999)
The Naya Smart Breast Pump boasts patent-pending HydroComfort Technology that uses water instead of air to gently massage and help express milk more efficiently and quickly. Its rechargeable battery lasts up to 180 minutes, which equates to about two days of pumping for most women. You can also pair it with the free Naya Health Tracker, which will automatically track your pumping sessions, milk supply and daily and weekly stats. It is composed of fewer parts than traditional pumps, is lightweight and comes with all of the accessories you’ll need for successful pumping.
Owlet Baby Monitor ($249.99)
It goes without saying that the Owlet Baby monitor is an innovative and useful addition to any smart nursery. Its comfortable sock uses pulse oximetry technology to track your infant’s heart rate and oxygen levels while they sleep. The Owlet is designed to sound an alert if your child’s heart rate goes too high or too low, as well as if their oxygen levels dip below a preset level. And, it syncs to your smartphone via WIFI, as well as to a base station in your child’s room.
