Linus Baby Tips - baby monitor edition

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok LTT fans, I’m expecting a boy in 6-7 weeks, and apparently I “need” a baby monitor. After going through reviews online I realized these things are just overpriced security cams for the most part, and some have horrible security protocols / bad or old firmware.

 

any suggestions for what I can use and / or buy? Money’s not a major issue. (Ok granted I’d say less than 1k).

 

thanks,

Why not just grab a few security cams and be done with it?

Any recommendations for a smart cam / system?
