The Samsung SEW-3037 is one of our top-rated video baby monitors for good reason. It will keep you well connected to your baby when you can't be in the same room. Samsung came on the baby monitor scene a little later than some of its competitors, but the company competes well.

One of the biggest challenges of using a baby video monitor is getting complete coverage. It's not an issue when the baby is asleep, of course, but you will want to be sure that your monitor can keep your crawling, daytime baby well within its sights. Wall-mounting is one manufacturers' trick to overcome this problem, but the SEW-3037 has even more effective tricks up its sleeve.

The Samsung SEW-3037 camera has pan, tilt and zoom capabilities that are adjustable from your control monitor, so you can find the right viewing angle regardless of where your baby is in the room. The pan, tilt and zoom capabilities will, at times, even eliminate the need for wall mounting. The SEW-3036 camera is more limited because it lacks the pan and tilt feature, though it does have zoom capabilities, as do all the Samsung baby monitor cameras, and is wall-mountable.

Also included in the series are the SEW-3035 and 3034 models, which both add a temperature sensor and an AV output, allowing you to connect the video baby monitor to your TV. The SEW-3035 also has a USB port for a Skype connection. The SEW-3035 and 3034 monitors have fewer features, including the omitted LED volume lights.

All the models are expandable to four cameras. The SEW-3037 is compatible with both the simplified camera and the pan, tilt and zoom cameras, while the SEW-3036, 3035 and 3034 are only compatible with the simplified camera.

You can contact the company by phone or an online contact form if you have any questions or issues. Representatives are good about getting back in touch with you promptly. The one-year warranty is fair and will compensate you for serious problems like replacing a defective monitor.

The transmission range is an impressive 900 feet from the camera under many conditions. However, if there is too much metal in the vicinity, for instance, or if you live in a multi-level home and there are a couple floors between you and your baby, the signal may not always transfer. But most conditions will allow for a strong signal from a good distance.

The only time you might experience interference is if the monitor is sitting too close to other devices that share the same 2.4GHz frequency, such as phones or internet routers, but the manufacturers have done a good job of safeguarding against such glitches, and you should experience them rarely if at all.

The monitor panel looks and feels a lot like a smartphone and runs on rechargeable battery power. With its intuitive controls, you can locate your baby in any corner of the room. The 2x zoom may not get quite as close to your baby as you would like at times, but you should never have a problem locating your baby quickly with a clear image.

Not only can you keep close tabs on your baby with the multifunctional pan, tilt and zoom camera that comes with the SEW-3037 model, but the audio features also allow you to interact with your baby. You can activate the Two-Way Talk feature from the main menu by simply touching the screen to sooth your restless baby from the next room. From the same menu, you can access the mute button and adjust the volume.

A VOX feature puts the monitor into sleep mode if there is no activity and activates the monitor if it detects sound or motion, so you can conserve the battery for when you need it.

Aesthetically speaking, the Samsung SEW-303 has a simple, sleek design that enhances any room, even that of a baby's, without trying too hard to blend in with infant décor like some manufacturers tend to do. The remote-controlled nightlight on top is a nice feature that will give just the right amount of light to the room at night and provide a soothing presence for your baby.

If you have any issues with the Samsung SEW-303, you can contact the company by phone or an online contact form. Representatives are good about getting back in touch with you promptly. The one-year warranty is pretty standard, yet fair, and will compensate you for serious problems like replacing a defective monitor early on.
