What is Firmware in Baby Monitors?
Firmware is the software that is embedded in the baby monitor device – both the transmitter unit and the receiver unit. Essentially, the firmware is the software program in the hardware and ‘tells the hardware’ how to function. Every baby monitor has firmware that comes with the baby monitor device. The software is stored in the device’s “Read Only Memory”(ROM) of baby monitor and so it is unaffected by battery power.
Where do firmware updates come from?
Firmware updates are provided by the manufacturer of your device and the updates are mainly meant to improve performance, bug fixes, and/or add additional features. Firmware is very important as it controls all functions the baby monitor does. For example, the camera can have additional features such as autofocus with a firmware update.
Why you need to update firmware on your baby monitor
Baby monitor manufacturers often release firmware updates that will upgrade the performance of a baby monitor, add new features, or even fix bugs. The bugs could be a simple glitch in the app or a security vulnerability that makes your baby monitor vulnerable to hackers. Any owner of a baby monitor should make sure they are using the latest firmware.
