5 Reasons to Say Farewell to Your Old Monitor

It’s just plain hard to part ways with items you’ve spent a lot of time, energy and money on (who could forget their first flip phone, car or embroidered jean jacket?). But when it comes to your old baby monitor, we can think of many reasons to bid it adieu and never look back.

Here are five ways your baby monitor might be treating you wrong and how Nanit can help!

  1. Security vulnerabilities

Some monitor cameras have IP addresses that can be sniffed out and hacked. Others allow 2-way audio, a well-known security hole. Not Nanit. All our data and communications are encrypted and unidentifiable. In fact, Nanit is HIPAA compliant, the same standard held by doctors and hospitals.

  1. Cord issues

When we were developing Nanit, we visited a number of real-life nurseries and came across a major safety flaw – many monitors came with cords and wires that posed a strangulation risk. That’s why we designed Nanit with an innovative, 5-foot cord channel that keeps wires under wraps and safely out of reach.

  1. Radiation concerns

With some digital or wireless monitors, you might worry about radiation emission. Rest assured, Nanit’s camera was built to direct microwave radiation away from infants – 10 times less radiation in the direction of the child than in any other direction, and far less radiation than popular home devices like a TV or computer.

  1. Placement problems

Finding the right spot for the monitor can be tricky. You might have to place it close to the crib just to get a good view, a potential safety hazard. Nanit’s smart camera stand, though, stands behind the crib, never coming into contact with your baby. A 2-year-old in the 90th to 99th percentile of growth wouldn’t be able to reach Nanit’s camera, even if they stood with their arms outstretched.

  1. And lastly…they’re not Nanit

No other monitor compares to Nanit when it comes to safety and security, from its shatter-proof camera lens to its tip-proof stand. Not to mention that Nanit makes sleep tracking a breeze – no wearable devices required.
