Established in 1984 Philips Avent was born from the original company Philips, known for many of their products. Avent believes in a superior quality of products meant for mom and baby, and of course caretakers and such. At Avent they strive to make our lives just a bit easier for new parents or parents looking for better products. And another of Avent’s goals is to support mothers no matter what or how to feed their little ones.
Philips Avent sent us the uGrow Smart Baby Monitor to review. Now there are a lot of features that I love, and so far I am not having any issues so far. When we set up the monitor, you have only 2 pieces for the monitor, the monitor and the plug outlet and a mount piece if you wish to mount it, so it is super easy and fast to set up the uGrow monitor. Afterwards you have to download the uGrow Smart Baby Monitor app on Apple or Android with IOS 7 or Android 4.1 and above, and can work for devices from Apple’s line of products, the IPhone 4s+, IPad 2+, IPod Touch 5+. And you must have a internet network of 2.4 GHz to be able to use the monitor. Follow the instructions and you are all set to go! It may take a total of 10-15 minutes to set up everything.
Other great features that are included in the uGrow Smart Baby Monitor is that it works on all network type connections, multi-camera and multi-viewer friendly for friends and family wishing to see baby and one monitor can support up to 10 devices plus a privacy mode so you can choose who and when people can look at baby! You can also personalize the way you want your monitor to be set up. The uGrow also has up to 720p HD with day and night vision! Now that is one handy monitor! As we all know we cannot see in the dark and not having a monitor that is capable of doing that isn’t going to work for you, so I love that night vision feature. In addition to the day and night time vision, we also have color for day time use, and infra red, black and white vision for night time use, for better quality. There is even a background mode that helps reduce power usage while doing other stuff on the phone or tablets, and will keep updating you when baby is waking up.
The uGrow monitor also comes with 10 soothing lullabies, manually on the monitor or remotely on the app! You can also set up a timer or what songs you wish the monitor to play. You know what else that makes this monitor #1 in my book? It has a Talk-Back, room humidity/temperature feature to make sure you can check on baby all the time without waking baby up!
Now my very absolute favorite is as new parents or parents of children, who doesn’t love taking pictures? The uGrow app comes with a snapshot to take those adorably cute moments without exiting the app!
Overall I really love the app, and all the great features that are both on the monitor and the app itself. My only one concern is about how long the monitor cord is, as it can be a chocking hazard, so I would love to about a wireless monitor? Or a shorter cord!
You can buy the uGrow monitor for $239.99, a great price for all these great features, and you can buy it online at the Philips website, amazon, and in stores or online at Walmart, and BabiesRUs! And don’t forget to follow Philips Avent on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google+, and Pinterest!
