Cocoon Cam is a wifi video baby monitor that made it to the list of best baby monitors/cameras with wifi in 2019 and in 2020. I personally like this smart baby monitor most because of its low cost. Cocoon Cam, the company behind this brand of baby monitors first released the first version on March 9th, 2018 and in 2019, a renewed version called the Cocoon Cam Plus hit the market.
Similar to Nanit Plus, Miku baby monitor and Motorola Halo +, Cocoon Cam uses AI to track the baby’s pulmonary movements without having come in contact with the baby. Cocoon’s cam camera uses AI technology to obtain crucial data relating to your baby’s breathing.
How it works and Features:
- Cocoon Cam has a real-time breathing rate and BPM display similar to Miku and Nanit.
- Night vision HD videos
- It has a hit map that shows exactly where your Cocoon Camera is detecting your baby’s movement.
- Instant alerts if your baby’s breathing changes such as when your baby cries
- No wearables needed as you would with Owlet or with Baby Vida.
- FSA and HSA approved
- See the video and the breathing of your baby using a smartphone app which is rated 3.8/5 by about 100 users
- It uses only 2.4 GHz wifi and is not a dual-band monitor.
When functioning normally, Cocoon Cam would not show the breathing rate per minute when your baby is not still or asleep. You should note that the breathing per minute(bpm) may not show
Cocoon cam activity log
Cocoon Cam activity logs show you the summary of your baby’s rest. You’ll see when the baby when to bed and your baby woke up.
Cocoon cam Video and night vision
Cocoon Cam Plus camera has automatic night vision mode. The low-light sensor built into the camera detects low-light environment and turns on the night vision LEDs which illuminate on your baby for camera to take pictures at night.
Video Review of Cocoon Cam
(when it gets blurry)
- Non-wearable technology
- Keeps losing connection or going offline
- Does not come off as a sturdy camera that can be durable as other video baby monitors such as Nanit and Nest
- Delay in-app and app sometimes do not work
- At times, breathing graph not working
- Like other baby monitors, it is easy to see a black screen and night vision failing
