It is impossible for parents to accompany the baby all the time during the growth process. Today, with the rapid development of science and technology, people invented a baby monitor by modern radio technology to learn the baby's activities even if they leave. So what is a baby monitor? What kinds of baby monitors are there?
What is a baby monitor:
Baby monitor, as the name suggests, its function is to monitor the baby. The monitor uses modern radio technology. Since 30 years ago, Europeans and Americans have used them to monitor the baby, which has played a very active role in monitoring the baby.
In case that the parents are not with the baby, the baby monitor is used to understand all the baby's situation, without worrying about the baby all the time, making the parents' life more free and flexible, and giving great help to the work and life of the parents. It can be used not only to monitor babies, but also to care for the elderly, and protect other public places, such as supermarkets, companies, schools, and hospitals.
Generally speaking, the two ends of the instrument, the monitoring end and the control end (usually called the baby end and the parent end), constitute a complete set of monitors. However, the monitoring terminal and the control terminal can also be combined according to the different needs of consumers for monitoring. There are four combinations: one-to-one, one-to-many, many-to-many, and many-to-one. Among them, the most common is one monitoring end to one control end which is also the choice of most parents.
As one of the professional security camera suppliers, our baby monitor can generally be divided into the traditional baby monitor and network-type baby monitor. Among them, according to the working principle and application of the monitor, the traditional monitor can be divided into the wireless baby monitor and direct-recording baby monitor. They have distinct differences in working methods, use distance and product structure.
1. Wireless baby monitor
The instrument is composed of a monitoring terminal and a control terminal or a monitoring terminal and multiple control terminals. The monitoring terminal encrypts the captured content and transmits it to the control terminal through wireless electromagnetic waves. The control terminal decrypts it after receiving the signal, and finally restore to sound and image. Generally, the effective distance used by this type of monitor is about 100 to 250m, which is because radio waves are easily interfered, and as the transmission distance increases, the signal will weaken.
2. Direct recording baby monitor
This kind of security camera has only one host and a computer and related software must be installed. The user must use the software to read the contents of the monitor, and then can see and hear the monitored baby's activities. Due to the limitation of the focal length of the camera of the monitor, the monitoring range is also limited. In theory, it can monitor the situation within the range of 3 to 5 meters.
3. Network baby monitor
This type of monitor also has only one host, which sends out the images and sounds of the baby captured. Thus, the user can connect the mobile phone or computer to the Internet to receive the images and sounds, which can be viewed at any time and place. The increase in distance will not affect the transmission range of this type of monitor, but the focal length of the camera will affect the clarity of the captured images and sounds.
