Nanit Smart Baby Monitor
The Nanit Smart Baby Monitor is the best baby monitor of 2018. It’s expensive, but its price is justified if you care about the data-driven insights it will give you every day. The picture quality is outstanding, clearly surpassing all the other baby monitors on the market at the moment. It’s easy and safe to install. Its mobile app is intuitive to use. And it comes with tons of helpful little features, such as room temperature and humidity tracker. No wonder people call it the “Tesla of baby monitors“.
Warning: I have to admit that at Baby Monitor Mall, we’re all a bit geeky. We are very much aware of our bias towards new tech stuff that can help improve our lives. But we also recognize that tech gadgets aren’t for everyone.

But if you aren’t, I suggest you skip this review altogether and check our review of the Infant Optics DXR-8 instead. The Infant Optics is a much more straightforward baby monitor at a reasonable price and is overall the best video monitor you can get at the moment.
