We are celebrating Nanit Week, so we are going to be sharing Nanit tips and tricks on the community!

The tips and tricks shared are both from Nanit as well as Nanit families! We would love to hear your Nanit tips, so share them on the thread or message me directly.

Nanit's multi-stand is great for traveling, but sometimes it is hard to find the right placement for the stand so you have a complete view of baby!

Below are two options from a fellow Nanit parent to temporarily mount your camera to different objects:

Your multi-stand has a bolt hole in the bottom of it. The bolt size is 1/4 - 20, which is the same size as a standard camera tripod. If you don't have enough space for a tripod? Try a magnet from your hardware store with a hole on each end. From there you can use a 1/4" drill bit and made the holes a bit larger. Use a 1/2" long bolt that is sized 1/4 - 20 and you can mount the multi-stand into the magnet, and then onto anything metal!

You could also try a heavy-duty clamp from your local hardware store. Put a 1/4" hole in one of the ends that your hand would grasp to open/close the clamp and then attach the same way you would with a magnet.

What other Nanit travel hacks have worked for you?


  • We stayed at a hotel that didn't require a password for its WiFi. We therefore could not connect the Nanit to it. We used our laptop to connect to the hotel WiFi and created a hotspot on the laptop that we then connected the Nanit to.

  • SarahM we did the EXACT same thing, except we used one of our phones as the hotspot instead of a laptop!
