Mini as a baby monitor (parent unit)
My wife and I are finalizing things before our baby arrives. For a camera, we have chosen the Nanit. Originally we’d planned on using our phones parent units because the Nanit app will run background noise allowing us to hear what’s going on in the nursery continuously and check the video when necessary. but we figured that might be annoying.
I’m Considering buying a mini so that we can have video streaming full time and free up our phones from constantly running sound while we’re at home. Plus, in a few years the mini will be nice for the baby to have for herself.
Any parents use a mini as a parent unit? Thoughts?
Secondarily, is there a negative impact on the battery by leaving the screen running constantly if we keep it plugged in as much as possible?
