Why you need an extended warranty for your baby monitor

Baby monitors have transformed from simple devices with one-way radio frequencies that have poor sound quality and lots of static into intelligent, high-tech necessities. Now they come equipped with smart cameras, video monitoring, apps and WiFi connection, built-in sound machines, and even some that can monitor breathing and heart rate.

With all this fancy technology packed into something as small as a baby monitor, you'll want to make sure it's covered by an extended warranty. Extended product protection plans like MulberryCare guarantee you're protected in case your baby monitor breaks or incurs any sort of damage. Let’s take a look at a few popular baby monitor models and features, and see why getting an extended warranty for your baby monitor is so important.

The perks of modern baby monitors

Modern baby monitors are built so parents can use them for years and years. Video features, multi-use parent units, and more allow for use beyond just your baby's first year. Below are some of the best features we’ve seen in today’s baby monitors.


Almost all modern baby monitors feature a camera. Some, like the Nanit baby monitors, offer a 1080p HD camera for quality video day and night, allowing parents to check on their baby from anywhere in the house.

Models like the Eufy, Hello Baby, and Vava video baby monitors allow new parents to see almost the entire room with their swiveling cameras. Most are controlled on the parent device so you can see where your child is and what they’re doing at all times.

Apps/WiFi connection

Depending on the model, the Nanit and Hubble baby monitors use WiFi and have a free app that connects you to the baby monitor wherever you are. This can be extremely helpful for parents who leave their child with a sitter for just a few hours or even overnight.

Built-in sound machine 

Why spend so much money on a sound machine AND a monitor when you could have both? The Nanit baby monitor and a model of Vtech baby monitor both feature soothing sounds, white noise, and lullabies for your little one.

More than just a parent unit

The Hubble baby monitor offers something for more than just parents. There’s also a 5” HD color touch screen that is used to stream video from the monitor, and the Hubble Baby mode allows your child to play educational games, have stories read to them, and even watch videos specially curated for babies and toddlers.

Breathing and vitals monitoring

The popular Nanit baby monitor has a sensor-free Breathing Wear monitor that detects the baby's breathing. This can mean huge peace of mind for many. In fact, according to their website, 71% of parents report having less anxiety when using a Nanit baby monitor.

Why you need an extended warranty for your baby monitor 

As we’ve touched on already, most modern baby monitors have extremely smart and handy features that parents are looking for. Peace of mind is everything, especially in those first few months. But do these baby monitors really stand the test of time?

Most makers of smart baby monitors offer a manufacturer's warranty, but those rarely provide coverage beyond manufacturer defects, and typically only last 6 months to 1 year. If you’re planning to use your monitor for longer than that (which most do), you want it to be covered for its entire lifespan, regardless of the damage it might incur.

When you purchase an extended product protection plan beyond the manufacturer's warranty, you can rest assured that your claim will be properly dealt with and your device replaced if you ever encounter an issue.

Mulberry offers low-cost extended warranties, especially when compared to several other extended warranty companies. Because we do all our underwriting in-house, you’re getting the most bang for your buck and can rest assured that your claim will be handled by a company that cares about you.
