*guest post from Naomi Alon of Little Crown Interiors
With the looming futuristic advances in all fields of science and technology, things really are different these days. Raising a child in today’s world means a plethora of options, including all kinds of new baby products that are on the cutting edge of technology. Designing a nursery today isn’t just about furniture and décor.
The Hatch Baby Grow is a whole new kind of “smart” changing pad. There are so many features built into this product, in addition to the function of a changing pad. It has a built-in wireless scale so you can monitor your baby’s weight, and an iOS app that lets you track changing, and connects via Bluetooth.
One of the issues I deal with a lot as a nursery designer is how to add soft lighting for those midnight changes and feedings. The Smart Luce Bassinet from Micuna has a sleek and simple design, but it also has a light installed inside which can be turned on during the night as needed to check on baby, without turning on other lighting that may wake them.
Alexa is quickly becoming a mainstay in many households now with its ability to manage tasks hands-free. Project Nursery has just released their Smart Nursery Baby Monitor System with Alexa, allowing baby monitoring to reach a whole new level. With features like voice control, Wi-Fi panning and tilting, app connectivity, remote viewing, and a whole host of others. For the high-tech house, this monitor is a must.
