BCB Product Feature: Summer Infant Peek Plus

Since hearing about this monitor almost a year ago, I have been waiting anxiously and patiently for it’s arrival on the market.  The Peek Plus is the smartest digital video baby monitor I’ve used to date.  While it comes with a handset that can be used in the house, you almost don’t even need it if you have a smartphone.
Accessible through a password protected page, your camera is connected to it’s own website allowing you to view your sleeping (or not-sleeping) baby on any iPhone, iPad, computer, Android or Blackberry. This technology allows for you to carry one less thing around the house and have access to peek at your baby wherever you are.
Someone asked recently, “Is this really necessary?”  While at first I didn’t think it would really make a difference (and I still don’t think it is a must-have), the technology has grown on me and now I would wonder what I would do without it.  I can check in on J when I know she should be napping or sleeping., which is incredibly helpful when I am workout out of the house during the day.  I have to admit, it’s also fun taking a peek at her when I am out for the evening, traveling, or even on an airplane (as I did recently.)
I LOVE: The technology is amazing.  People are in awe when I show them (especially non-parents.) I love being able to check the monitor on my iPhone and not worry if our hand-held is charged or plugged in.  It’s small and easy to use and put together.  The sound on both the hand-held device and your own personal device is exceptional and so is the picture.
I WISH: It had a  2-way talking function so I can tell her to, “lay back down, it’s still dark outside.”  (I am not kidding.) The camera pan was a bit better.  (But unless you have an expansive room for your baby, this feature may not even come into play as it barely does in our home.)  I also wish it was a little less expensive.
COST: $349.99
