What is it?

An ultra-secure baby monitor with many features.

Good points?

One of the standout features of the Proscenic BM300 is its high-definition video quality. The monitor boasts a sharp and clear display in 1920x1080 pixels.

A 10-degree field of view with wide-angle lens and pan/tilt motion allows parents to observe their baby’s activities with precision, even in low-light conditions thanks to its non-intrusive invisible infrared night vision technology. This is ideal as there are no red dots or lights to disturb the baby during the night.

The monitor display and camera come pre-paired so are ready to use, negating any major set-up requirements. They communicate via orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing which is point-to-point encrypted and keeps data transmission on many narrower and more secure bands rather than one wide-band frequency.

The real-time two-way audio communication feature allows parents to hear their baby and also speak to them through the monitor. The VOX mode combined with the sensitivity of the microphone is finely tuned to pick up even the softest sounds, ensuring that no baby coos or cries go unnoticed.

A 3,600mAh rechargeable battery gives up to 12 hours of continual usage which helps power additional features including lullaby music to soothe your little one and a novel feeding alarm to maintain a routine.

Bad points?

The secure closed communications system means that there are no available updates that can be downloaded from the internet.

Best for ...

Parents seeking to ensure the safety and well-being of their little ones while maintaining privacy.

Avoid if ...

You’d prefer the option to save recorded video direct to the cloud for convenience.

Score: 9/10.
