A baby monitor is always a "must have" on every new parent's shopping list. Being able to keep an eye on your baby at all times bringe a sense of comfort. My first entry into the world of baby monitors was 4 years ago when Indigo was an infant. A lot has changed since then and the technology and the features are so much better now! My second son, River, is 9 months. He takes a long nap in the middle of the day and I like to keep an eye on him without physically being in the nursery.
I had the chance to test out the VTech RM5762 Wi-Fi Remote Access Video Baby Monitor with 5"display and 1080p HD 360-degree Pan & Tilt Camera and I rely on it daily! See why the RM5762is my#1 Tech Must-Have for the Nursery.
# 1 Tech Must-Have for the Nursery
What do you get with the VTech RM5762 Wi-Fi Remote Access Video Baby Monitor with 5"display and 1080p HD 360-degree Pan & Tilt Camera?
The RM5762 comes with 1 parent unit (the monitor) and 1 baby unit (the camera). It also has 2 AC adaptors, battery pack for parent unit, 1 wall-mount bracket (with hardware) and an installation and quick start guide.
How to Install the Monitor
I usually dread bringing new tech devices into the house because they can be a pain to install. I'm not the most tech-savvy person and messing with wires, connections and thick installation manuals is not my idea of fun. Luckily for me, the RM5762 couldn't have been easier to install! I plugged in the camera, turned on the parent unit and helpful prompts showed me how to pair the camera with the parent unit and how to connect to the internet. Honestly, anyone can easily install this!
Where to Place the Camera
The RM5762 features a 1080p HD 360 degree panoramic viewing Pan & Tilt Camera. It can sit flat on a dresser or changing table or you can mount it to the wall. Right now I have it on the changing table, but once River is mobile I will mount it to the wall (it comes with hardware)l. The camera pans and tilts so you have a ton of options when it comes to placement. The camera is controlled with arrows on the parent unit.
MyVTech Baby app
Setup is a breeze. Just download the app and use the username and password you already created when setting up the monitor.
The app allows you to watch your little one from any location in real time. It's perfect for when you have a babysitter! You can view and control the camera from work, a restaurant, or anywhere else. You can pinch the screen to zoom for up to 10 times the detail.
The app also offers alters which notify you when the camera detects movement. You'll know when your baby wakes up from a nap or when someone else enters the room.
There are no fees or monthly subscription for the app.
My Favorite Features
The features on this unit are extensive which is why it's my #1 Tech Must-Have for the Nursery! The monitor can do everything from playing soothing sounds and lullabies to seeing in the dark (thanks to automatic infrared night vision).
I love the big 5 inch touch screen and high definition video. The last baby monitor I had was 4 years ago when Indigo was an infant. I thought it was going to be something I used all the time, but the resolution was so poor I could barely make out my baby on the screen! Not the case with the RM5762! The unit has a large display and I can clearly see River. I can even tell if he's smiling!
I also love the motion alters. River is a light sleeper and if he hears a floorboard creak, he wakes up. With the motion laters I can find out if he's awake without peeking into the room or constantly checking the parent unit.
