The cordless monitor features a 2.4 inch LCD pivoting display and uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which lasts for 8 hours on a single charge. This monitor includes an AV hookup for connecting it to the TV but will not out of the box connect to the internet. To view the baby monitor remotely you need to purchase the MobiCam Internet Kit which will then broadcast live feeds from the monitor which you can access from the internet through your computer or smartphone.
The MobiCan Digital ’starter kit’ includes the monitor and a single camera for $189.99,additional cameras are $99.95 a piece. The internet kit costs $59.95. For more information, check out MobiCam.
We think this would make a great gift for a new parent that desires a video baby monitor but feels intimidated by tech. While we like the idea of a video baby monitor, the DIYer in us is not thrilled with the prospect of having to pay almost $60 in order to connect to the internet. Having said that, if we were seeking a video monitor for our own household we would be more likely to opt for another solution.
