First day back from break and I am sleeeepy!

Need some recommendations on a baby monitor.  We have a student that is required to have time alone in a Snoezelen room. I am looking for a monitor that has a high resolution, ability to scan the room, and possibly speak into the monitor.  Any suggestions???

I've never used it for this purpose but what about this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DPLF8KJ/ref=dp_prsubs_3 ?

My parents use this as a security camera/dog camera in their house.  It has good resolution, can move side to side, can stand straight or wall mounted, and 2 way audio.  Can connect to an app on multiple phones (I'm assuming computer too).

Did your school have to provide the Snoezelen room equipment (had to Google WTH that was)?

I personally use the Yi cameras for our house. They have a great resolution (and night vision!), can be remotely (via an app on our phones) moved to see all nooks and crannies of the room, and have 2 way communication.

i had to google it too (i was thinking the snozzberries taste like snozzberries!!)  I have a simple camera that i bought from amazon like the one mentioned by @BiscuitRN to watch Fort Flare and mind the animals.  It works fine with 2 way audio, motion set off and tilt and pan capabilitlities.  You have to install an app so an aide would have to watch from a tablet with it installed.

We had that at a children's hospital I worked for it was called a "sensory room."  Didn't know it had a fancy name!

Snoezelen or controlled multisensory environment is a therapy for people with autism and other developmental disabilities, dementia or brain injury. It consists of placing the person in a soothing and stimulating environment, called the "Snoezelen room".

 My previous employer had these at our Adult Day Care centers to calm those with dementia and stimulate those who hated playing games --- was a bubble + fish filled tube like in this picture

Back when I worked home health I went to school with one of my littles in a special ed preschool.  They had one of these rooms and we'd go in when he was having a rough day.  I think it helped both of us.  I want one of these in my house!
