Baby monitors have come a long way from the crackly, static-filled intercoms that filled store shelves just a few years ago. Today, they not only allow parents to hear if their lil one wakes up in the middle of the night, but they also offer video and temperature monitoring and can even be shared with family and friends. The Lorex Live Wireless Video Home Monitor ($170) offers all of this and more in a reliable, easy-to-use package. Setup couldn't be easier with the Lorex system. Simply power up both the camera and the display screen and begin viewing instantly.
The camera gives clear audio and video, and in darkness, it will automatically shift into night mode, creating illuminated imaging through infrared light sensors. Via the display screen, moms can hold the "Talk" button to speak directly to their tots. They can also turn on a comforting lullaby to soothe lil ones back to sleep.

The Lorex Baby Monitor features a room temperature monitoring system, allowing parents to ensure that babies' rooms aren't too hot or too cold. If the room's temperature goes outside the standard 68-71 degree setting, an alert can be set to notify parents.
Want to capture a lil one playing in her crib? Simply insert a memory card to record the viewings. For safety purposes, the system can be set to start recording when the audio level in the room changes, such as when your baby starts crying. Recordings are organized by date and can be played back on the display screen or easily uploaded to a computer to view or share with others. You might catch a really cute video of your baby bouncing in the crib.
The system also offers the ability to add on additional cameras that can easily appear in the same display screen, making it great for families with multiple young children or those who wish to monitor outside of their homes too. And, if you find yourself away from home but want to check in on your sleeping tot, the camera can easily be viewed via Skype. With an easy, straightforward setup and user-friendly settings, the Lorex has covered parents' biggest concerns when it comes to monitoring their tots.
