Safest Wired Baby Monitor- Review:LeReve Owlet, Bebcare, Nannit and Snuza Wireless and Dirty Electricity
Looking for the Best Baby Monitor?
So here's the TLDR (too long didn't read...) on what baby monitor I recommend:
- My first choice for baby monitor is ALWAYS a wired baby monitor. For years I've been recommending a great DIY wired monitor that allowed you to utilize the electrical current of your home and use your own phone or tablet (wired up ideally) to keep an eye on your little one. This makes it much more realistic and lifestyle friendly - you're able to access it from anywhere in the world but BETTER YET it has NO WIRELESS EMF. Unfortunately, the one I used to recommend has been discontinued so my team is on the hunt to find a replacement for you!
My next choice would be a "Low EMF Baby Monitor" Specifically the Le Reve. I have tried out several others and this one was the only one that actually had significantly lower EMF levels than the normal wireless monitors. The Bebcare and Hello Baby both showed high levels of EMF. The way the Le Reve works is that it stays in a low power standby mode until it is activated by the baby making a sound. It had the lowest standby EMF levels AND the lowest connected EMF levels. I will note that we have had trouble getting in contact with the manufacturer which I don't love. We haven't tried all of them but I try to demo the most popular ones so you can make an informed decision for your family! See the demo of the Le Reve below!
- If you MUST use a standard wireless baby monitor PLEASE be sure to place the camera as far away from your baby as possible! Distance is your friend when it comes to EMF and moving it 10+ ft away from the crib will significantly lower your baby's exposure. That's important for parents too! If you are accessing the monitor from your phone or tablet, try to wire it to the internet to minimize your own exposure too!

Be Mindful of the EMF Radiation Your Child is exposed to
I've categorized important studies in our Research section if you'd like to know more about links to specific illness, but the fact remains that babies and children are much more susceptible to the negative effects of wireless radiation because they're immune systems and defenses haven't developed to the level of adults.
But children are susceptible to RF radiation simply from all wireless devices--even if their just holding Mom's or Dad's.
The illustration below is from the MID-90's(yes, parents have been concerned about wireless radiation for a loooong time) It's a picture of how kids brains absorb more radiation then adults because of their thinner, developing skulls. This was done by Professor Gandhi who was actually working for the Motorola and Department of Defense at the time and according to Devra Davis* lost his funding after he published this 2 dimensional modeling.
Children's little bodies are different than ours. Their skulls are thinner and the fact that their body systems are rapidly developing makes them more vulnerable to microwave exposures. Devra Davis of the Environmental Health Trust reminds us that this information is scientifically accepted. She also lead research *confirming that because children’s skulls are thinner and tissues of a child’s head, including the bone marrow and the eye, absorb significantly more energy than those in an adult head. The illustration below demonstrates the greater exposure absorption for a smaller head. It's done with 3D modeling used for the Environmental Health Trust.
Be Mindful Of Other EMF Radiation Sources In Your Home
Because of my EMF Sensitivity Syndrome, I've created an EMF free home. I use these fabulous RF and EMF meters to guide my electromagnetic radiation exposure. You can work toward a more RF radiation- free environment by wiring up as much as possible.
I mention in the Wired Baby Monitor EMF Demo video that I'm going to put this little meter on the site--because it's super easy to use. No numbers. Just a simple Low to Extreme reading with color coded lights.

Choosing A Wireless Baby Monitor or Wired Baby Monitor
EMF Radiation and/or Dirty Electricity and Your Baby Monitor
Wireless Baby Monitors Emit High Levels of EMF radiation. Take a look at any of the Wireless baby monitor videos in this blog and you'll see us measure and detect high amounts of EMF exposure. We found a do-it- yourself Wired Baby Monitor that emits 0 EMF Radiation! Scroll down to see everything you need to create this DIY Baby Monitor system and a step by step guide to putting it together.
Connecting Baby Monitor Directly to Ethernet in Your Home
If you have wired Ethernet cable in your home or if your have Fiber Optic cable, this wonderful wired baby monitor alternative will most likely result in Zero Dirty Electricity--especially if you also include this wonderful grounding device-
However, if you're going to be using your electrical outlets as the "connection" of ethernet to the Baby Monitor(the Dlink Wired Camera) this will result in what's referred to as dirty electricity.
Using Your Electrical Wiring to Create an Internet Network through your Outlets and Dirty Electricity
Powerline products turn the electrical wiring of a home into network cables and transmit signals to every room.- They have an Ethernet Port to create a wired connection from the outlet to the Baby Monitor camera.
Going through the wiring can cause dirty electricity, but it's a shame that some EMF click bait sites are confusing people into thinking that it's better for your baby to be exposed to wireless radiation.
Our Tech Wellness Expert is an electrical engineer and EMF instructor and the renowned Institute of Building Biology and according to him we need to worry so much more about wireless radiation.
The Truth About Dirty Electricity In The Wiring Of Your Walls vs Wireless Radiation Spewing From WiFi and Wireless Baby Monitors
Yes, there will be dirty electricity as a result of sending signal over the wires via the adapters. Our point of view is that it is the lesser of two EMF evils. Here, Larry Gust, one of the most qualified experts on EMF mitigation in the world, explains:
"One has to choose one’s poison or decide to do away with man-made electricity– because all of it has had very significant effects on the health of Man-kind (The Invisible Rainbow by A. Firstenberg)Do you want the family to be hit by a huge hammer (Wireless connections to TV and PC, cordless phone, your smart phone) or run the small signal over the wires–Ethernet over power line). The signal on the wires could be considered dirty electricity, but its mostly on the wires and does not project into the room very far and the power densities are weak. That situation compared to purposely filling the air with wireless energy is no comparison at all. If you have got to have the modern stuff than you can't do away with man-made electrical energies.One can also choose to install Ethernet wires all over the house and use those rather than running the Internet signal over the house power wiring. BTW there is a tiny DE signal from Ethernet too. Probably less than from Ethernet over power line. "
Be Mindful Of The Greater Dangers Of Wireless EMF
However, just like putting a Smart Meter in your home, the wireless signals combine with the hard electrical wiring in your home and create dirty electricity. Dirty Electricity is a form of EMF that can't be measured by a EMF radiation or RF meter, but it's a type of EMF that can still cause harm.
But the dirty electricity comes off the wiring- get 2' from the wiring and your exposure goes way way down. Wireless radiation fills your home and unlike electrical EMF, there are 1,000's of research studies that show wireless radiation causes harm.
We Think the Best Baby Monitor... is a Wired Baby Monitor
We recommend adults stay far from their WiFi router, turn if off at night with a WiFi Switch and toggle phones to airplane mode while sleeping – yet unknowing parents will plop a wireless camera on their child’s crib without thinking twice about the energy these wireless devices emit.
After measuring several of the popular baby monitors (all wireless), we started searching for a “wired” solution – and it turns out they’re pretty hard to find! We'll let you know when one is available. Meanwhile . . .
We found a great DIY solution!
*please note: Sadly the manufacturers have discontinued this camera! We are working hard to find another option for you!
We have a step by step video guide showing how to take a wireless camera and make it a Zero EMF emission Camera and use your computer, phone or tablet and turn them into the Zero EMF radiation Monitors!
The DIY Wired Baby Monitor Overview
- The camera itself is built as a wireless Camera EXCEPT it has a special FUNCTIONALITY that allows it to become WIRED by connecting to a long Ethernet cable which works through ADAPTERS that plug into regular power outlets.
- Next, the video signal is transmitted via those ADAPTERS through your home's power lines--or household wiring-- to a hub in another room.
- The video signal broadcasts the live video feed to the "MONITOR" which is simply your Computer or Tablet or Phone via the Camera APP you download.
Start with this D-Link Camera
You'll need to Set The Camera Up via WiFi and Your Phone To Use The MyDlink App. But once you've done that- RESET the Camera using an open paper clip and then Plug the Ethernet Cable in and the WiFi will not be on.
You’ll need 2 Powerline adapters
NOTE: Don't Buy the Power Line Adapters if You Have Ethernet or Internet Access Points Built In--As Shown Below.
And You'll Need 2 Shielded Ethernet Cables
OPTION 1: If you have wired Ethernet outlets in your home
Plug one end of the shielded cable into the wall and plug the other end into the D-link camera. Done!
OPTION 2: If you DON'T have these wired Ethernet outlets
Take Shielded Cable and plug it into your Router
Plug the other end of the Shielded Cable Into The First TP-link Adapter And Plug the Adapter Into The Closest Electrical Socket.
Take the Second Shielded Cable, Plug it into the Second TP Link Adapter.
Then Plug the Adapter it into the an Electrical Socket close to where the Camera will be located in babies room.
Plug The Other End of The Shielded Cable into the Camera and WiFi is automatically disabled.
Download the app and easily manage your camera.
The App is free and the set up is a breeze.
You can use your Smartphone or tablet as the "monitor" Be sure to use our lightening adapter/Ethernet cable fix to use your cellphone, laptop and tablet without wireless energy!!
DLink does not require a cloud video subscription in order to use the camera. However- unless you want the optional feature to record the camera and send notifications, there are no additional costs.
We Tested For Sound and EMF This video at the top of this blog shows you how it works as well. No RF radiation wireless exposure and camera and sound looked great!!!
IMPORTANT: Make sure you get the correct D-link model. This one automatically shuts off the wireless connection when you plug the ethernet cable in. The company told us the DCS-9330 does not broadcast WiFi- but it cannot be accessed remotely. That means you can't see it on phones or tablets.
When you use the the D-link Adapters to send the WiFi signal through the electrical wires in your home, there will be resulting dirty electricity. Larry Gust explains that having dirty electricity on your wiring compares much more favorably to having the Electromagnetic Radiation exposures to baby and family that come from wireless baby monitors.
Wired Baby Monitor Privacy and Security
When it comes to your footage and how and where it's stored it's best to use the dLink app or the mydlink.com website. These are both encrypted delivery systems.
Remember, bad actors and hackers can access your data through your WiFi connection. Please change your passwords often and name your WiFi router something clever. Avoid using you address or name.
You can also access the footage through your browser with a password-but we don't recommend that method as it's not encrypted and vulnerable to hackers.
See the review of wireless cameras from Consumer Reports:
". . . In contrast, D-Link doesn't store video from the DCS-2630L in the cloud. Instead, the camera has its own, onboard web server, which can deliver video to the user in different ways.
Users can view the video using an app, mydlink. The video is encrypted, and it travels from the camera through D-Link’s corporate servers, and ultimately to the user’s phone. Users can also access the same encrypted video feed through a company web page, mydlink.com Those are both secure methods of accessing the video.
But the D-Link camera also lets you bypass the D-Link corporate servers and access the video directly through a web browser on a laptop or other device. If you do this, the web server on the camera doesn’t encrypt the video."
As we are immersed in the IOT (internet of things) with more and more smart devices in our homes and businesses, it's important to be aware that hacking is a real by-product. What can you do? Change those passwords often. The latest anti-hacking password advice from Tech Wellness Cyber Expert Bryan Neumeister--Use sentences or phrases that begin with numbers.
Other Wired Camera Options:
We're constantly scouring the marketplace for options to Wireless Baby Monitors and we expect there will be others on the market soon. There once was the BabyMoov, which we purchased and tested, the video is still on YouTube, but the company stopped manufacturing it.
We found the Matop Camera online, which claims it has an ethernet/WiFi option. But the reviews are not good. We only recommend and do demo's detecting EMF for products that consumers find worthy.
Also, the marketplace for wired baby monitors is confusing. When you search them in Amazon, products like the Angel Care and the Nanit come up. We've tested them both- see the videos below- Spoiler Alert:
They are not low EMF, which is sad that for some strange reason, Amazon or unknowing Moms and Dads, think they are.
Baby Monitors Aren’t The Only Source of EMF in Your Home
All wireless devices emit RF radiation a type of EMF. Today in our wireless obsessed world, our radiation exposures to EMF shave never before been this continual and intense.
Here's a list of what's in a typical Baby's home-A list of things baby shouldn't be too close too.
- Cordless Phones
- Smart Meters
- Smart TVs
- Nest Wireless Air and Heat Controls
- Wireless Security System
- Wireless Printers
- WiFi Routers
- Wireless Modems
- Digital Alarm Clocks
- Anything with Bluetooth
- Smartphones and Cell Phones
Wire UP When You Can!
You'll Adore A Faraday Bag
for NO EMF and complete Privacy
And keep your little ones-3 and up, safer by letting them play games on phones and tablets on Airplane Mode. Airplane Mode means they are not exposed to EMF Radiation. There will still be magnetic radiation as you'll see in the video on the Stylus Product Listing--
Still Think a Wireless Baby Monitor is Best?
We think this DIY wired alternative is excellent, and it's what Jeromy Johnson recommends on his emfanalysis site too--BUT, if you must use a wireless baby monitor, here's important information you should know.
- Wireless Baby Monitors Constantly emit EMF microwave radiation while switched on (both the base and the parent handset)
- Wireless Baby Monitors Come with warnings in their packaging: Keep them at a distance, like 20 cm, or just under 8 inches, from the body
- Babies brains are just developing. Children absorb more RF radiation than adults from wireless baby monitors because their brain tissues are more absorbent, their skulls are thinner and their relative size is smaller.
- There are Privacy Issues with Wireless Baby Monitors as the signal may not be secure.
We have EMF exposure video demonstrations of the Le Reve No WiFi, (low EMF in Power Save) Nanit Baby Monitor, The Owlet Baby Monitoring System, The Snuza and The Angel Care Wireless Baby Monitor here:

It's been my sincere pleasure to help you find a great alternative to wireless baby monitors and the toxins they expose the whole family to. Thank you for reading and thank you for sharing the video and information-it make me and everyone here at Tech Wellness very proud to be a part of our passion and our mission.
Sneak Peak of BebcareWe will be releasing our Bebecare Baby Monitor Review soon.
Spoiler alert: When You Use The Camera Or When Bebcare Detects Audio, the Bebecare does Emit Wireless EMF Radiation.
So yes, the Bebcare can mean less EMF exposure for your baby when you use it as sound only and the baby's room is quiet. BUT be aware that the Bebcare does EMIT EMF radiation. The radiation levels are as high as any baby monitor when the Bebcare hears baby, or sounds in baby's room. It's also on anytime the camera function is on recording baby.
The LeReve Low EMF Baby Monitor
We've tested all the Low EMF Baby Monitors and although this one isn't perfect or NO EMF, it's the best we could find(so far) for Moms, Dads and Caregivers who are looking for a Low EMF option.
The LeReve does have an Power Save or ECO or Low EMF mode when the Baby Unit camera or cameras are not activated by the sounds of your baby. We detected moderate levels of EMF in the Power Save or ECO mode. You won't see or hear anything on the Parent Unit when the monitor UNTIL the baby makes an audible sound. A that point, the camera turns on and the EMF levels go to extreme, similar to other wireless baby monitors.
A typical wireless baby monitor will be "on" all the time and exposing your precious baby to high or extreme levels of wireless electromagnetic fields at all times.
This Le Reve Low EMF Baby Monitor will also climb to high levels, but after a minute of quiet or no sound communication will drop down to a low and acceptable level as long as it's 8' to 10' away from the baby.
From our experience the Parent Unit monitor had a nice clear picture and good clear sound. We've noticed that some reviews mention that the Parent Unit is inconsistent or stops working after a few months- but many have been replaced by the company.
