Camera/Floorstand 101

We built Nanit with all the tools you need to properly monitor your baby and keep up with their sleeping habits. The following information will help you learn more about the hardware that helps make Nanit the smartest baby monitor on the market.

Camera and infrared light

Nanit uses a high definition camera (960p HD) to capture each of your baby’s precious moments. To make sure you’re able to keep up with your baby’s activities in the dark, there's a diffused, low glow, infrared light emitted by the camera. (10 LEDs 850nm)


Night/status light

The top of the Nanit camera is made of an illuminating plastic that will light up anytime you turn on the night light, or Nanit is connecting to Wi-Fi.

Pairing button

On the backside of the Nanit camera, there is a button with a radio signal icon. This button is used during the pairing process, to pair Nanit to your mobile device.

Reset button

Next to the pairing button, you’ll find a small recessed button. This is Nanit’s reset button. The reset button can be used anytime you’re experiencing connectivity problems and need to re-pair your Nanit camera.

Temperature and humidity sensor

Nanit can let you know anytime your baby's nursery is too hot or cold by using the temperature sensor. Additionally, Nanit will display the humidity level of your baby's nursery within the Nanit app. The sensors are located in both the wall and multi stand, directly behind the camera.

Camera release button

The grey button on the top of the stand, behind the Nanit camera, is the camera release button. To remove the Nanit camera from the stand, press and hold the button while carefully pulling the camera away from the stand.

Camera angle knob

The grey knob near the top of the stand can be used to adjust the camera’s angle. To adjust the camera angle, turn the knob counterclockwise to loosen. Once finished, turn the knob clockwise to tighten.


Nanit includes a U-Clip and two screws for mounting Nanit to the wall. For the most secure and stable position, secure the U-Clip on the stand, and screw the clip to the wall 32 inches from the floor.

L-shaped channel and cable channels

Loose cables pose a serious safety risk for your child, so we’ve included cable channels to eliminate that risk. The cable channels ensure that the power cable is concealed and not within reach of your baby’s crib.

Specifications of the floorstand

65.6”H x 23.5”W x 10”D

The bottom cable channel protection system is 62" long and there is 30" of extra cable coming out of the end.
