Back in my day there were baby monitors that allowed you to hear what was happening in the baby’s room, perhaps even a small camera with a grainy black and white video too.  Today, things have moved forward, and just like they did with the home security space, Netgear have shaken things up with the Arlo Baby.

This thing is so good it had to be award winning.  This fits into Best Internet of Things, Best Gadget in fact several places – but we took it straight to the top, the first of our “gold” awards, Best Lifestyle.

As a device that is plug and play, monitors video, sound, temperature, can play tunes, is a night light it’s just got everything.

Chris Bowen’s been using it non stop with little baby Henry and he’s got more “smart home” stuff than anyone I know (including me) and has nothing but good things to say about this little gem.
