Pros

  • Recommended alert settings for infants and toddlers

  • Absence of noticeable red light
  • Adjusting settings within the application is effortless

Cons

  • Absence of video in sleep reports
  • Locating significant instances in 24-hour video playback can be time-consuming

The Ellie Baby Pro smart baby monitor caters to the innate nesting inclination of new parents and alleviates the early, anxiety-ridden days of parenting. Equipped with AI technology, this monitor can identify a covered face or send notifications to your phone when a baby rolls over (a feature applicable to infants too young to roll back).

As your baby grows and becomes more adventurous, venturing near the edge of the crib, the Ellie Baby Pro’ s danger zone setting can promptly detect this and ensure their safety. This attribute alone makes it the preferred choice for families utilizing side sleeper cribs or practicing co-sleeping.

Review of Ellie Baby Pro: Design

The Ellie Baby Pro monitor has an adorable cartoon design, perfectly suited for your baby’s room.

One of the best aspects of the camera design is the absence of a red light for night vision, which is beneficial if you have a sensitive sleeper like mine. Inside the Ellie Baby Pro, there is a microphone and a built-in speaker that enables you to communicate with your baby, play lullabies, or produce white noise directly from the monitor itself. The 360-degree pan and tilt function allow you to survey the entire nursery effortlessly.

To operate the Ellie Baby Pro, you use an app by scanning QR code on the packing box and the instruction book. The in-app setup process is straightforward. Initially, I encountered some difficulties connecting the monitor to my phone, but after three or four attempts, I successfully completed the setup by utilizing Ellie’s help feature.

Attaching the camera to the provided docks is effortless, thanks to a snap joint located at the bottom of the camera that fits into a slit, providing stability on various bases. 

 Ellie Baby Pro review: Quality of video and audio

The Ellie Baby Pro monitor captures video in 2.5K HD, the highest quality available, while most cameras in the market only offer 1080HD. The 1080p HD night vision recorded by the  Ellie Baby Pro appears crystal-clear on my smartphone display. The clarity of the image enables you to ensure your baby’s nose is free from the mattress.

The audio is of excellent quality, as expected for a baby monitor within this price range. There is a one-second delay between generating the sound and its transmission to the phone.

Ellie Baby Pro review: Mobile app

The app’s home screen is generally easy to navigate, with the camera’s live view displayed at the top and adorable photos of your baby’s great moments beneath it.

Sleep analytics, notifications, and settings can be easily accessed using the tabs at the bottom of the screen, and switching between them feels intuitive and effortless, similar to using a familiar and user-friendly app. Cubo’s app also allows the invitation of additional administrators or family members and provides the convenience of limiting their permissions to restrict access to playback videos or event alerts.

You can save captured moments from the camera and display them under the monitor’s live view, but they can be downloaded as you like.

Ellie Baby Pro stores up to 24 hours of video playback in this manner, and it is accessible for viewing here. Nonetheless, it would have to be a highly significant moment to motivate me to go through this process. 

Ellie Baby Pro review: Instant notifications

Enabling and customizing additional alerts on the Ellie Baby Pro is simple through the app. Notifications for rolling over, face coverage, and specific zones can adapt as your baby grows. Particularly during the initial days of a newborn, the first two alerts are crucial for ensuring peace of mind.

For better accuracy in the alerts, it is recommended to define a crib detection zone in the Ellie Baby Pro app by drawing a square that encompasses the entire mattress, including both crib rails. 

Ellie Baby Pro review: Conclusion

The sweetness of the Ellie Baby Pro monitor’s cartoon design cannot be denied, and the usefulness of its main alert settings could really be of use to families — particularly those that use side crib sleepers or chuck all their perfectly designed nursery dreams in favor of co-sleeping.

The video and sound of the Ellie Baby Pro hold their own against other similarly priced monitors, and the app is useful enough, you are allowed to download the videos and photos stored in SD card without any subscription fee.
