If there is anything that mothers need, it’s peace of mind. Thankfully, Motorola‘s 2.8″ Video Baby Monitor with Wifi (MBP667Connect) helps you keep an eye on your baby while you aren’t in the room. Something that I absolutely love about his monitor is its ability for you to view what’s going on several different ways: a 2.8″ handheld diagonal colored screen, on your smart phone, tablet, computer, or laptop. You know what this means? You have the ability to keep an eye on things whether at the office, school, or out on the town. Another cool feature about the Motorola 2.8″ Video Baby Monitor is its 2-way communication tool (allowing you to talk to your child without being in the room). I also love the ability to check on the temperature of my child’s room and see my child whether day or night (inferred night vision). So wish the special mother in your life Happy Mother’s Day with a good night sleep and peace of mind with the Motorola MBP667Connect.
