Smart Home, Smart Tech: Nanit Baby Cam

These days, there's smart home tech for every phase of life, from gadgets that change the music and mood lighting for parties to smart medication pillboxes to prompt aging family members to take pills at the proper time. Now, there's also the Nanit camera, a smart tech device that studies your baby's sleep patterns while your whole house is asleep!

Here's how it works:

The Nanit camera gathers video footage. It's sleek and unobtrusive, with a tall, white stand that hides its power cord and leans against the wall. The camera and stand have a fall-resistant design made to thwart babies' grabbing hands, and even features a built-in, ceiling-facing nightlight. It's also detachable from the stand, in case that doesn't work for your nursery, and can also function sitting on a tabletop.

However, Nanit’s standout features aren't even in the outer design, but the smart tech on the back-end: its algorithms examine everything within the camera's view. Nanit's helpful app helps parents and caregivers understand how their baby's sleep quality changes when they moves, they fall asleep, or when you come into the room. It congratulates parents on milestones, and shows a crib heatmap that tells you where your baby moves through the night. Each morning, it gives a baby's sleep score and highlight reel of the previous night, along with a behavioral analysis based on what the camera observes. Nanit is available for preorder starting today for $279, a $70 savings from the full cost when it ships in September.
