  •     Best Value Award Video Monitor – Motorola Digital Video 2.8 inch.

Although cutting some of our favorite features from the full featured 3.5 inch model, it still delivers outstanding performance at a relatively attractive price.”
  •     Top Pick Award for Best iPhone Video Monitor –iPhone Baby Monitor with Y-cam Wifi Webcam. According to Spurrier, “Although complex to set-up, and best used to augment, not replace, a traditional baby monitor, there is nothing like the geek-out joy experienced when pull up a live video on your iPhone of your baby sleeping to a co-worker. We gave it out Top Pick award for innovation. A great option for the techie nerd Mom or Dad.”
