Features On Baby Monitors

Baby safety monitors can be either digital or analogue technology, although the majority on sale today are now digital baby monitors. It is strongly recommended that you choose a digital baby monitor due to the improved clarity of reception, and the enhanced security and privacy. Analogue baby monitors are prone to interference from other electronic devices such as phones and other baby monitors in the close vicinity so they can easily pick up unwanted sounds as well as transmitting your baby noises to other households! Many digital baby monitors have automatic channel selection to simplify the process of finding the correct channel, which can be especially useful if you are carrying the unit around the house as it just automatically adjusts the channel to the best frequency wherever you go.

Portability is a key issue for most parents and many baby monitors are both battery and mains chargeable which means that the parent has the flexibility to take the unit anywhere in the house and even the garden. Some monitors have a parent unit which comprises of a charging unit (also called a docking station) and a separate handset which makes them even more portable. Angelcare, Avent, Graco, Luvion and Motorola all offer charging units with separate handset, although you should also compare the size between the handsets. There are also two-parent monitors available, sold by companies such as Graco, so that both Mum and Dad can have their own monitor with charging unit. Some units also feature an integrated belt clip or neck cord which can be handy for the forgetful parent! Talking of forgetful, there are also baby monitors, such as the Graco range, which have pagers built into the parent unit just in case you lose it.

Talk-back is also a very important feature, which is available on many models such as the DECT Avent range and many of the Motorola monitors among others. This allows bi-directional sound between the baby and the parent, so that your little one can hear your voice even when you are out of the room. If you go for a model with this feature, make sure that it has volume control as not all of them do.

The LCD or display on the baby monitor, whether sound or video, is also important and can vary from model to model. Many displays are in full colour and include information such as humidity and temperature in the baby’s room. Another useful feature available on some baby safety monitors is the ability to programme all the functions from the parent unit, so you do not need to go to the baby’s room (and potentially wake little one up) if you decide to change the settings.

Some also incorporate a nightlight into the baby unit and others play lullabies or music to the sleeping baby. Another very useful feature is a sound level indicator, which visually shows the parent the sound levels within the baby’s room, using light indicators. If the parent unit is on the ‘mute’ setting, they can still gauge the intensity of the cries within the room, and some monitors will alert the parent when a certain level is reached. This is also a critical feature for parents with hearing difficulties. Many of the Avent DECT monitors offer this feature.

Most models have a range of different alarms or warnings such as out of range indicator, low battery indicator and temperature alarm. A vibration alert can also be very useful for hard of hearing or deaf parents.

Many of the models available offer continuous or sound or motion activated transmission which helps to save energy as the baby monitor only comes on when the baby moves or cries. If this is a key feature for you, take a look at the Luvion Platinum or some of the models in the Philips Avent range.

Features on the video monitors can include automatic screen activation, so that the unit is only activated when the baby makes a noise and infrared vision so that the parent is able to see the sleeping baby in the dark. Many of the Avent monitors have infrared vision, as does the Luvion Platinum. Some baby video monitors can also be connected to your TV screen if required (such as the Luvion Platinum) and others can even be transmitted via the wireless network to your PC or mobile phone. A good video monitor will also have a movable camera so that the parent can position the angle for the best view of little one and, even better, some have a built in zoom which means that you can place the camera virtually anywhere in the room, as long as it is facing the baby. Many baby cameras are either portable, or wall or ceiling mountable for additional flexibility.

You can also find recordable video monitors, which means that you can replay your favourite moments, creating lasting memories instead of just being used as a safety device.
