Cheaper alternative

If you already have a security and surveillance set from Netgear, then I speculate that you and your wallet will fully appreciate this addition for the offspring. But if you don't want to spend 285 euros on the video-monitored security of your baby, then there are also cheaper products. How about the YI Home Camera, for example, which also offers full HD, two-way audio, motion detectors, the detection of babies' crying and night vision for just under 52 euros? Usable in the smart home via the YI Home app and local storage of the baby monitor videos / pictures on an SD card (not included): Check it out!
