We tested more than a half-dozen devices to find the best baby monitors with the sharpest images and most important features for checking in on a sleeping child.
An easy installation process, a solid app experience and lots of helpful features and smart-home integrations make the August Smart Lock Pro a great choice.
The Nest Hello has a lot of great features, including facial recognition and excellent video quality.
Ring's Pro doorbell provides extra customization for motion alerts, sharp video quality and a sleek design, but the installation process could be easier.
Ring Video Doorbell 2 is flexible enough to go anywhere, plus it has good motion-alert settings and low cloud-storage costs.
Kid-friendly Alexa and Amazon's FreeTime Unlimited is a hoot on the Echo Dot Kids Edition, with age-appropriate answers, skills, music and audiobooks, plus solid controls to empower good parenting.
Other video baby monitors are more fully featured, but Safety 1st delivers excellent video quality and a helpful portable audio unit.
Boasting a number of handy features you can easily access from a companion app on your phone, Arlo Baby has just what you need to check in on your baby at night and during naptime.
While it delivers quality video, this doorbell camera's facial-recognition feature doesn't work well.
Project Nursery's baby-monitor system pairs a solid camera with a privacy-minded smart speaker, so you can use Alexa for control instead of relying solely on smartphone apps.
Amazon Key solves a very specific problem for a very specific group of people: Amazon Prime customers who worry enough about stolen packages that they'll allow a delivery person to unlock their front door and drop the parcel off right inside their home.
If you’re the kind of parent who checks on the baby every 15 minutes, the breathing-detection feature of Cocoon Cam Plus just might help you relax.
The Wisenet BabyView suffers from a low-quality handheld display and weird or missing features. You can do better.
Although you can install the RemoBell anywhere, it had the lowest resolution and fewest options among the video doorbells we tested.
