Eufy, maker of smart light bulbs, scales, robot vacuums, and other home gadgets, has now released the SpaceView Baby Monitor ($159.99), a high-definition monitoring system that lets you keep an eye on your child from anywhere in the house. This camera/monitor combo will let you know when your baby is crying and offers responsive pan and tilt functionality, and it’s ready to use right out of the box. It also delivers sharp video, but it lacks motion detection and other smart features that you get with our Editors’ Choice for baby monitors, the iBaby Monitor M6S.

Design and Features

The SpaceView system consists of a camera and a portable handheld monitor and comes with two USB power adapters, two USB power cables, a camera wall mount, and a user manual. Shaped like a short, stubby light bulb, the camera stands 4.0 inches high, is 3.0 inches wide at the top, and has a 2.2-inch wide base. The enclosure is glossy white with a black camera face that holds a microphone and provides 110 degrees of floor-to-ceiling mechanical tilt. The base contains a mechanical swivel motor for 330 degrees of panning motion. It also has a micro USB power port, a pairing button, an LED power indicator, and a speaker.

The camera captures full-color video at 720p and has a 55-degree field of view and a temperature sensor. It offers 16 feet of black-and-white night vision video and comes with a small twist-on wide angle lens that expands the field of view to 110 degrees. The speaker and microphone provide two-way audio communication with the monitor, and the microphone is also used for sound detection and will trigger an alert to the monitor when the baby is crying or making any kind of noise. Missing are the motion detection capabilities that you get with other baby monitors, such as the iBaby Monitor M6S and the Safety First HD WiFi Baby Monitor.
