Baby monitors are like a minefield! You never know what one to go for! Wi-Fi or not? video or just audio? sensor matt or not? its all a bit overwhelming for mothers who are moving their babies away from their bedside in to their own room. You want to make sure they are safe and ok but at the same time you dont want to send your anxiety through the roof!
When we looked for a camera, we wanted a video camera so we could watch what Grayson was doing when we were downstairs and if we really needed to run all the way up to deal with him or if he is just trying to get our attention so we went with the BT camera..it got great reviews online and did most but not all of what we wanted but we settled….
Then along came Lollipop….they offer an amazing camera with some fabulous features! And everything we wanted in a monitor!
Firstly the design…Its made from a lovely bright and colourful soft silicone, its available in 3 colours so there is one to suit all, the bendy tail allows you to place the camera anywhere! You can attach it to the crib with the handy attachment, you can wall mount it, or you can stand it on a flat surface. For us we put it round the cot with the attachment, you can actually see the whole cot aswell not just a small part of it, which for us is brilliant because we have one wriggly little boy when he is in bed!
Another feature which we love which very few cameras offer is Lollipop can detect true crying! Basically it means that this handy smart cam can tell the difference between Grayson crying and just some general noise. Lollipop sends you real time notifications right to your phone when it is too noisy in the room! No more false alarm notifications!
Other features on the Lollipop Cam;
Live View Mode ; No matter where you are….jump in to live view mode and you can check up on your little one! John expecially loves this feature as he works away alot so he can just jump in and see Grayson sleeping where ever he is, and it will be fab for date night too when we just want to check on our wee man.
Audio Mode ; This is the feature we probably use the most, turn on audio mode and your mobile is a portable monitor! We use it at night so we can hear Grayson in the other room. This will also come in handy when he get a bit bigger and he is playing in his room we can keep a listen on him to make sure he isn’t up to mischief
Video Events ; Probably my most favourite feature….ever wonder what your baby does during the night? you leave them in one place and then they wake up at the other end of the cot and upside down and you think…huh!? Well Lollipop saves a 30 second video of significant events such as crying or in our case the sound of Grayson moving, so every morning i will check what night time antics Grayson has been up to!
We are so happy with the Lollipop Baby Monitor, with amazing picture quality both in the day and night vision, it basically is every mothers must have monitor! It was so quick and easy to install and set up (i actually did it in the dark while Grayson slept). We cannot fault it at all! Best monitor on the market!
