Dropcam HD Wi-Fi Wireless Video Monitoring Camera

This wi-fi enabled camera isn't technically a baby monitor, but we still think it's a universal must-have for parents. While on-the-go, you can peek in on your little one at home from your mobile device or desktop. Its 107 degree view means you can see the whole room at once (or zoom in!), and it connects to your wi-fi in about two minutes.

The Catch: A few parents thought there might be a slight delay in the video

  • Easy to use, with no separate monitor, you can view it right from your phone! You can also talk through it to help calm a fussy baby. Oct 24, 2017

  • we bought these for our two children, so easy to set up and use and you can access it remotely Oct 17, 2017

  • It works incredibly well! Aug 02, 2017

  • Good, clear video. I like the play back feature. I don't like that it can only be moved manually, but wouldn't be a problem if you hang it on the wall. Jul 26, 2017

    Working really well for us great image. Not easily transportable outside of the house. Jun 01, 2017

  • We have this in our nursery and in our house. I love the clear video, but wish you did not have to pay extra for the Nest Aware. My husband likes to check in on the baby when out of town for work. May 22, 2017

  • Love it. The picture is pretty sharp and you can connect to your cellphone and check you baby everywhere Apr 02, 2017

  • Love these cameras we currently have 3. It's so simple and the quality is great. I'd say the best part is being able to pull it up on my phone and see what's going on. Mar 26, 2017

  • Great battery life, clear picture, can talk to baby, play lullabies, monitor room temp, monitor stands up on its own. C Jan 30, 2017

  • Must have! I love being able to check on my little one from anywhere by using the phone app connected to this! Nov 15, 2016

  • Great camera quality & night vision. Syncs to my phone & can set up alerts and recording. Sometimes we experience wifi problems and that's our only complication. Sep 27, 2016

  • Easy to see children when at home or if a babysitter is there. Aug 26, 2016

  • Have the Nest cams for the home. They are the best on the market for home security but not quite made specifically for baby monitoring so they do not include features like temp and humidity sensors Jul 14, 2016

    I have the NEST which is the same as Dropcam. Great Picture. The only problem I have is that the camera stopped notifying me of sounds. Seems as if it learned the sounds were familiar. Jul 11, 2016

    Love that you know your baby is safe 24-7 Apr 25, 2016

  • This is one of my must haves! No extra receiver is needed, just check in on baby with my cell phone! Such clear picture and audio. Dad could check in as well from work when working late. LOVE! Mar 13, 2016

  • This is very helpful to keep an eye on your baby,I like it a lot Mar 11, 2016

  • got this one now that my son is older and he likes to play in his room by himself, really good resolution and we can see almost his whole room. It does have a delay but is one of the safest wifi camer Feb 29, 2016

  • I love this! Easy install. I can talk to my baby while I am at work through it and stalk it on my iPhone lol. Its crystal clear even at night. I will be purchasing several more for around the house. Feb 15, 2016

    Both my husband and I travel and this is a great way to just have a peek at the baby when we're far away. Love this. Jan 30, 2016

  • I use it for my puppies Jan 25, 2016

    Really nice so far! Nov 29, 2015

    its great but only issue i have with it its that it lags not only on the video (which isn't too bad) but especially the voice speaker. Nov 23, 2015

  • This is the best idea for a baby cam. We even gave the login to the grandparents who live far off so they can see baby. Nov 23, 2015

  • Love it. Allows friends in different places to log in and check on my kids. Even from deployed locations! Oct 08, 2015

    These are harder to hack into than standard baby monitors which makes me feel much better when it's on. Functionality is perfect too! Sep 05, 2015

  • It's a bit "big brother"y but it single handedly allows me to feel close to baby when I travel. I haven't used the talking feature yet, but the video and audio quality are great! Aug 27, 2015

  • Get the "pro" version for crisper picture, wider lens, better zoom, better audio. But this works great as our 2nd cam. Aug 11, 2015

  • The only camera you should ever consider. I had the summer infant that turned 360 and was about $300. It didn't work. Love that you can set alerts, record video, talk to the baby, the view, etc. Aug 05, 2015

    Bought it for sleep training for my son. Works perfectly in dark room under wifi. Jul 17, 2015

Everyone
  • Q: Do you need two of them if you have twins? I want to watch the boys when I'm out of the house on my iPhone.

    asked by Leah C. - May 24, 2014

  • This would depend if you have your twins in two different rooms. I have my twin girls in a room together so if you place the camera in the right spot you can definitely see them both!

    Melissa P. - Jul 25, 2014

  • Q: Is this easy to set-up with an Apple computer?

    asked by Jonathan S. - Mar 31, 2014

  • Yes. I have a Mac and had no issues. Really easy to use, love it!

    Jakub G. - Mar 31, 2014

  • It's idiot proof. :)

    Allyson D. - Mar 31, 2014

  • Yes. The box says it takes 3 minutes or something like that. In reality, it took about 5. Really simple and easy.

    Jackson D. - Mar 31, 2014

  • SO easy actually. I did this with my computers and my iphone, and it's the best when you want to see what your kids are up to from work, or wherever you are. I highly recommend it!
