In the fast-paced world in which we live today, many obstacles arise with juggling life and family work, especially with a new baby at home.
Often, parents find it challenging to manage their task-making efforts while watching the baby.
No one can be in two places at the same time, and that was one of the biggest dilemmas for parents who still want to be productive at home, but more importantly, they want to prioritize their children’s safety. This is the same reason that baby monitors have become very useful for many parents.
These devices allow parents to monitor the baby’s activities while they are not in the nursery or are working remotely. What is a baby monitor, and how does it work?
A baby monitor is a set of gadgets that has a transmitter and a receiver, which sends sound or video (depending on the type) so that parents can supervise the baby’s activities while he or she is away. There are different types of these audio, video or sensory monitors.
The baby monitor receives and sends sound so that parents can hear it from a distance. The video monitor, on the other hand, works like a small TV by having a camera recording the baby’s movements while the parents could watch on a small screen receiver.
And the sensory monitor is a motion detector that alarms parents when they cannot perceive a child’s movement for more than 20 seconds. As this plays a role in child safety, what baby monitors do is to let parents know their child’s activities and look out for possible problems from afar, especially if the baby is asleep.
With that, they could at least do their usual work without having to worry about the fact that the child is not safe inside the room.
Today, many high-tech monitors, especially video or motion-sensitive monitors, instantly alert parents when problems are detected. Sensory monitors send alarms whenever they cannot identify the baby’s movement for 20 seconds or more.
Even the simplest models of such monitors, such as audio, keep parents aware of whether the baby needs them, especially when the child cries.
With this technology, parents are given the means to ensure that their baby is safe, especially when no one is inside the room to watch the child. Currently, it is difficult for any parent to be with their child 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
But despite these circumstances, it is good to know that technology has managed to make life easier, giving busy moms and dads the option to keep an eye on their precious little one, even when they are not in the same room.
And, as busy as life is, it is at least assuring many families that a device is available that really contributes to their peace of mind and adds to the precautions taken by parents to ensure the safety of their children.
