This super smart, all in one baby monitor is one of the best in the business. Featuring air quality sensors, temperature control, lullaby player, night lights and 1080p video with options to live stream and record, this is one of our best-reviewed baby essentials. 

When it comes to baby monitors there are a mind boggling amount on the market, however the Arlo Smart Baby monitor is one of our favourites, and that goes for our gadget-loving dads too!

Clever features include audio options to loop lullabies, record stories and parents voices which is super for some soothing sounds –  and great for when the little one has a babysitter or nanny.

The HD camera can stream video’s to your smart phone, TV or tablet so you can always keep check wherever you are. The camera records video clips which really works for any routine tracking reference.

Overall the video quality is really good and the Arlo app is able to send notifications and alerts direct to your phone when it detects sounds, motion, and even alerts specifically when baby is crying . It also prompts and informs you when air quality, humidity or temperature goes outside of the optimum range.

Overall Arlo Baby Smart Monitor a good investment which covers all bases and really does give a sense of high-tech monitoring with all the added extras to create solid and sound peace of mind for parents.
