NextStepIP Pro Review #GiftGuide

I announced awhile back that I am a NextStep Baby Monitors Ambassador! NextStep is a family owned and operated business based in Southern California, founded in 2004. With that said I had the chance to work with them on a review for an awesome iPhone and Android video baby monitor!! I was excited to receive the NextStepIP Pro for review. I followed the directions on setting up the monitor! It was super easy and figured out how to set it up to work away from home. You can hard-wire or set it up on Wifi!
 I put it in the living room because that is where it will get the most use. I babysit full time so the baby is always in there with me. If I have to walk away, I will watch him from the app on my phone! This gives us peace of mind when we are away too! What comes with the monitor?
-Foscam Professional Indoor Pan & Tilt IP Camera
-Deluxe Wall Mount Kit
-NextStep Setup Guide & Lifetime Support
-Support & Setup Assistance With Apps & Router
-No Setup
Or Monthly Fees!
-Two Year Warranty
After setting it up I downloaded the app from the Apple Store! I chose the one that I had to pay for for the extra features! 

As you can see on the left, that is me sitting on the couch! This monitor is pretty cool because it moves to anywhere in the room. The responsive pan and tilt action allows this to happen.! AND you can talk to whoever is on the other side of it! I LOVE that feature (and scaring my husband when he is in the living room)
The desktop version is pretty neat as well. I had to download a few items to my laptop but it doesn't take up much space at all!
 The NextStepIP Pro is simple to use, but I love the fact that I can have access right from my cell phone! The cam has IR on it. This new lens feature makes sure colors during daytime viewing are true. Cameras without IR cut can sometimes have washed out or slightly "off" colors. IR Cut fixes this issue by filtering out the IR light which can distort colors. This is able to be turned off at night for "night vision". All though, it makes me jump at night when I freak myself out into thinking there is something in my living room.
Overall, we are thrilled! If you want one for yourself you can buy it on NextStepBabyMonitors for only $129.99! It also comes in Pearl White! If you have any questions about baby monitors, you can find a NextStep Widget over on the right sidebar of my blog! It is toward the bottom and looks like the picture on the left here.
Be sure to visit NextStepBabyMonitors to see what else they have to offer! Don't forget to follow them on their social media to stay up to date with the latest! 
The Small Things is going to recommend this for the Holiday Gift Guide! This will make the perfect gift!
