Sebastian's bedroom is on a different floor than ours making it important for us to be able to monitor what's going on for peace of mind. I also wanted the ability to check in when I wasn't at home, so I was happy to try Logitech's Alert 750i Master System, a complete security system in a box. It comes with a smart camera, software, and free remote viewing.

With Logitech Alert, we can watch a live feed from the camera in Sebastian's nursery remotely via the Web and on a free iPhone app (also available for BlackBerry and Android). If I'm out all day, it's so nice to be able to peek in and see what he's up to.

The system also allows for play-back of recorded video from a remote location using a PC or smartphone, for an additional $80/year (for Logitech’s Web Commander/Mobile Commander package).

I can set it up so that we receive instant alerts to our e-mail and mobile phone anytime if there is motion in the room, and record up to a week of HD video, even when my PC is off. Logitech Alert can easily expand to accommodate up to six cameras—indoors and out.

The set-up was a breeze. I installed the software, plugged the adapter into the router, then plugged the camera in.

Unfortunately, this particular system doesn't have night-vision, which we've become accustomed to with our high-def baby video monitor.

The other drawback in using it to monitor the baby's room, is that the camera isn't wireless and needs to be plugged into an outlet. The cable has blinking lights, like a router, which are a nuisance at night.

I love being able to see the room via the Web and my iPhone and recommend the Alert 750i Master System for this purpose and it's simplicity and ease of use.

Retails for $299.99.
