This is an analysis of what I think of Nanit Pro, the latest brand of smart baby monitors by Nanit. In this article, I answer the most common questions that parents have on this highly-priced smart baby monitor, Is it worth it?
Is Nanit and Nanit Pro Worth it? Nanit Pro vs Nanit Plus
After a careful comparison and review of the different specifications of smart baby monitors comparable to Nanit Pro, I can confidently say that Nanit Pro is worth it and if you have a budget for it, I highly encourage parents to get it. This new brand was released in February 2021 and is relatively more expensive compared to the earlier brand called Nanit Plus. Below are other reasons Nanit Pro is better than Nanit Plus;
- It has a higher resolution videos at 1080p HD compared to Nanit Plus’ 960p HD
- Nanit Pro has a new nightlight that you can control its intensity on the app
- The new Nanit Pro is very user-friendly with a reset button that enables you to pair, reset and dismiss alerts. In the previous model, this reset button was below the camera and in the new model, it is on the side of the camera
- Nanit Pro also has ambient night light which was lacking in the older version
For these additional cool features and settings, Nanit Pro is only $50 more than Nanit Plus.
Features that make it worth it
Let’s now look at all the features that will make you think twice about buying another smart baby monitor such as Cubo AI, Miku Pro, or Owlet.
For $299, you get a video monitoring system with a breathing band that allows you to monitor your baby’s breathing. When you get with a floor stand, the price goes up to $379. With the breathing wear and its sensor technology, Nanit Pro is able to monitor your baby’s sleep and gives you insight into your baby’s sleep patterns. For the first year, you get these Nanit Insights for free but after the first year, you’ll need to pay $5 per month or $50 per year.
You can mount Nanit Pro using a wall mount, a floor stand, or a tabletop multi-stand.
Nanit Pro supports both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands and you can easily switch between the frequencies if the 2.4GHz has a lot of interference or is overloaded by other devices such as microwaves, home phones, and more. Most home devices use the 2.4GHz network.
Nanit Pro has a nightlight feature on the camera that you can activate right on the Nanit app on your phone. You can adjust the brightness of the nightlight and can deactivate it on your phone. Using the app, you can also play your baby nature sounds such as waves, white noise, and wind and your baby will hear them on the camera.
Being a wifi-connected baby monitor, other family members can view the baby. You just have to give them access via the app and you can give them admin or just viewer access.
