About Baby Monitors
A baby monitor transmits audio and video data to a receiver to keep a tab on the child's activity in case parents are not around. A basic baby monitor functions by using a radio transmitter, whereby the sound produced by a baby is transferred to a receiver. The receiver contains an inbuilt speaker that enables listeners to hear the baby from various locations within a certain range.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global baby monitors market to grow at a CAGR of 10.92% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Manufacturers have launched various innovative products in the baby monitor devices segment. Parents look forward to new high-end innovations in baby monitors, with functional features in the device. For instance, some monitors go beyond sound and video and attempt to alert the parent. An example is of Angelcare AC701 which has a movement sensing pad. The device is placed under the crib or the mattress. The detection pad is sensitive enough to notice even small movements of the baby while sleeping. If the movement stops, the device sounds an alarm after a 20-second delay.”
According to the report, SIDS, also known as crib death, is the unexplained death of a baby (less than a year old) in its sleep. Although the exact cause for SIDS is unknown, researchers believe that it is linked to abnormalities in the regulation and control of breathing in a baby's brain. SIDS has also been associated with a baby's sleep position; placing a baby on his stomach to sleep could trigger sudden death.
Further, the report states that though baby monitors allow parents to do multiple chores while monitoring their babies, these devices have many associated risks. For instance, baby monitors with manufacturing errors or that are poorly installed can pose a serious threat to the baby's safety. Monitors with wireless network connectivity make the monitoring process easy and convenient for parents. However, several health hazards can result from the use of these devices. The body of a baby is highly vulnerable to electromagnetic radiation emitted by wireless devices. Therefore, measures should be taken before installing these devices to monitor a baby.
