Cubo AI Pros and Cons

Pros
1. Barely any lag in the transmission of camera feed to your smartphone
2. You get notified when your baby cries, rolls over or has the face covered.
3. Its design is great for the nursery – it has the shape of a bird.
4. The 1080p HD video quality is great in day and night vision modes. It is so clear in the night vision that you can see your son breathing when you view the feed.
5. Cubo tells you who is viewing the feed – There is a round button on the side of the camera that will light up around the edges with different colors to easily tell what is happening. A dark blue light lets you know if someone is viewing the feed. No other camera does this.
6. It does not have monthly storage fees – Cubo gives you access to the past 18 hours of videos and saves video clips
7. It comes with three different mounting options: floor stand, crib mount, and mobile stand. The mobile stand allows you to move it around the house.
8. It provides temperature and humidity sensors to assist me to know if I need to adjust my A/C.
Cons
1. It is relatively expensive, costing more than $200
2. It does not monitor breath and does not give you your baby’s breathing rate per minute
3. The build quality of the camera itself isn’t the best. I guess not all companies can reach the “Apple-standard” in the product design and make. The software of Cubo is a great though and that makes up for this downside.
4. Some users have reported the connection to the camera to be a bit unstable. I’ve listed the troubleshooting steps that the companies provided in this FAQ section below (https://10babygear.com/cubo-ai-smart-baby-camera-review/#Cubo_AI_FAQs).

Overall, when all the features are considered, Cubo AI has superior AI technology that does not require you to purchase an additional blanket for more accurate readings. Cubo AI costs almost $300 but there are no additional purchases you need to make for equipment such as mounting kit or camera stand.
