But what does this mean?
This means that if you already own a Nanit unit and are looking at upgrading or buying one new, then now would be the time. This allows parents to have a voice-controlled baby monitor, so they can listen in on their child while they sleep
The article will end with some of the accessories that you might find helpful when it comes time to make your purchase.
What is Nanit?
Nanit is a smart baby monitor that uses machine learning technology to help parents analyze their baby’s sleep patterns. With the Nanit app, you can get customized alerts while watching your sleeping baby. The green animation means that the baby is sleeping well or has moved from their sleep pattern into a different one. The machine learning technology helps parents analyze their baby’s sleep patterns for better health outcomes over time.
The Nanit offers two-way audio, HD streaming and motion tracking. It also comes with the Breathing Wear, an optional accessory that tracks your baby’s breathing patterns.
The Nanit is an Alexa-enabled device that you can use to find a baby’s sleep patterns and waking up times.
How to Connect Nanit to Alexa
You will need both a Nanit and an Amazon account to set up the Echo Show skill. Once you have downloaded the Echo Show skill, open it and click on “Enable.” After enabling the skill, sign in with your Amazon username and password. You may be asked to provide two-factor authentication for verification purposes; however, this is not required every time you want to see your video stream on the show.
The initial setup process is complex, but expert help can make it easier. If you experience any problems during this process, please call our support team at 1-888-921-NANIT (62448) for assistance.
The Nanit can be downloaded for free from either the App Store or Google Play store . Additionally, the Echo Show can be used as a secondary monitor for this system by signing into your Nanit account through the website .
How to use and configure Nanit with Alexa
Configuring Nanit with Alexa is a great way to keep an eye on your little one when you’re not in the room. You can use either an Echo or Echo Dot to connect to your Nanit account, and the Drop-In feature will allow you to see and talk to your baby using the Nanit camera.
The first way of setting this up is by using an Echo Show with a toddler monitor. This will require that both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, and you’ll be able to use the Echo Show as a baby monitor without needing an actual baby monitor in its place. The second way of configuring Nanit with Alexa is by using an Echo Dot and a 2nd-Gen Echo Show. This setup will give you access to all of the features of Nanit, including bedtime stories and lullabies. Keep in mind that the Echo Dot must be placed within earshot of the 2nd-Gen Echo Show for this configuration to work properly.
Finally, you can also view live footage from your Nanit camera on your phone by downloading the app and connecting it to your account.
What are the benefits of using Nanit with Alexa?
The Echo Show is a great choice for baby monitors because it has all of the same smart speaker features as the other devices in its line. Plus, the Echo Show offers an intuitive and easy-to-use interface with a large screen that’s perfect for watching your little one. You can continue to use your Echo Show after you no longer need a baby monitor–just keep in mind that the Nanit App will not be able to take advantage of the camera and microphone features on the device.
The Nanit app can be used on an iPad, Apple Watch, and iPhone. The “collecting data” refers to the voice commands uploaded to our secure cloud, which allows you to view all of your child’s activity on whatever device they happen to be using at home.
