Is the Kodak Cherish C525 just another baby video monitor? I'm going with a "No" on this one, the number of features it packs into such a streamlined and good looking design still baffles me.
- Crystal clear HD video on a 5" screen
- Electonic pan & tilt camera
- Live view through Kodak Smart Home app on your mobile device
- Motion AND sound detection
- Record to SD card as well as CLOUD storage
- Temperature AND humidity readouts
- Rechargable batteries on both camera & viewing unit for 4-5~ hours of runtime
We've used several different baby monitors in the past but this one has definitely wow'd us with just the image/video quality alone, the clarity is simply amazing when you compare it to some of its competitors. And the night mode? Insanely good.
We also LOVE the fact that the camera also runs on battery since most units are traditionally only powered by mains. This means that you're no longer tied to a power point and can easily bring the camera around the house and place it wherever bub happens to be! It also allows much more flexibility if you're ever travelling and needed to bring the C525 with you.
Our favourite feature would definitely have to the smart capability of this baby monitor. If you have an active internet connection at home with a wireless network, you can actually do live view monitoring of what the camera is viewing/recording with the Kodak Smart Home app on your mobile phone!
What's even crazier is that you can actually set up motion AND sound detection paramaters so that the C525 can automatically record when something moves past the camera or if there's a sound loud enough.
And get this, it will save either to Kodak's online cloud system (you get 24 hours worth of storage) or locally to an SD card which can be inserted directly into the camera.
