Yeah but do nests have the crying baby detection option? I know that some dedicated ones have an algorithm that detects when the baby is crying and it alerts you. I also read about the anti SIDS where it detects if the baby hasnt moved for a while.I can NOT believe I'm going to comment on this... but...
Nest cameras: I have six running at once at my home. Since it's going through wifi and the cloud then back to your computer/phone, there will be some lag. However, you get the benefit of monitoring remotely.
Dedicated Baby Monitor: By this I mean a camera that transmits DIRECTLY to a handheld monitor of some kind. I've had these. Video is essentially real-time but you're restricted to viewing ONLY on this little monitor.
big +1 on this product!!
I can promise you Temp, you won't need a moniter to let you know when the baby is crying, that's for Damn sure! Sids is a different matter.Yeah but do nests have the crying baby detection option?

Oh, I forgot to respond to the SIDS thing.
Keep the crib clear of everything save for the baby and a blanket. No pillows, no puffy side bolsters, no stuffed animals to roll over on top of.
Past that, there's not much else you can do because you've done all the preventative stuff you can possibly do. The rest is not in your hands. No one is sure exactly why SIDS happens, so control what factors you can based on the best available information, but don't punish yourself trying to prevent something you can't predict.
Neverland Ranch?That's right. Audio-only is another option. I had an analog 900 MHz video monitor where you could turn the screen off (better battery life). An LED signal meter would dance around the louder sounds got.
And with the baby monitors (not wifi ones), video is a crapshoot... but tech has probably gotten better in the last decade +. Don't forget, wifi cameras will introduce lag.
Sometimes you can hear the baby snoring away. Nothing more soothing than that.
And, whatever you do: Resist the temptation to keep baby in the same room. It'll be a much harder "habit" to kick. I know a family where their 13 year old son still sleeps in the same BED as mom and dad. Not healthy. No joke.
