Things to Consider When Buying a Baby Monitor

Naturally, price and features will play an important part when choosing an infant monitor, but you may also wish to take other factors into consideration when making your final choice.
  • As discussed above, many baby monitors have portable and rechargeable hand-sets for the parent unit. The weight and size of the parent unit (excluding the charging base) is a key factor as some are definitely more portable than others! The charging time and the time between recharges can also be important factors in your decision. Some units, such as some of the models in the Avent range, can go 24 hours without having to be recharged.
  • The range of a baby monitor can be between 50 metres and 600 metres. Those with a larger range will enable the parent to use the unit at the other end of the house or even in the garden. Some manufacturers specify different ranges for indoors and outdoors.
  • If you are considering buying a baby video monitor, resolution and screen size is likely to be important. Models on the market today can range from a screen size of just under 2 inches inches (6cm) to over 7 inches (18 cm); (check out Motorola as a possibility if a large screen size is important) and some are equipped with high definition. Remember though that a larger screen size may mean less portability.
