Baby Monitor Reviews: Model Recommendations From Experts

June 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 194

A baby monitor is a wireless device that helps parents monitor their children's activities while they are in other parts of the house. These things run like the classic transistor radio, allowing you to remotely listen to sounds and communicate with other parties on the line any time, within a specific distance. It typically transmits messages and noise as radio waves, which is then translated by the speaker system into something audible. There are a few baby monitor models that come with a camera to make the supervision task more convenient. But all baby monitor reviews would reveal that every single one of those retailed still run on rechargeable batteries, and are either replaced or directly plugged into the socket.

Parents have grown accustomed to using baby monitors, because it gives them a better idea of how their infants are doing when they are busy doing other things. This makes them more capable of responding to distress and preventing fatal accidents and health conditions, like Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. On top of that, they are also able to check on how hired nannies are doing when it comes to performing their duties. There have been a lot of reports of help abuse all across the world, and it is often through these monitoring devices that parents are able to put a stop to it early on. For those who have older kids, baby monitors are also a useful means for bonding, since they can have their children talk to them directly, even if they are not in the same room.

For those who are looking to take advantage of these tools, here are some of the models several baby monitor reviews have asserted to be the best of the best.

First, there is the Philips Avent SCD510 DECT, which is deemed perfect for homes riddled with signal-interfering devices. Although quite expensive, Avent has proven itself worthy of the attention with its state of the art features and user-friendly controls. It runs on rechargeable batteries, has an out-of-range indicator and intercom feature, as well as a remote temperature monitor and makes use of the common 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz on top of the underutilized 1.9 GHz frequencies for communication. Some of its notable disadvantages, however, are its short battery life and low volume sound.

Then, there is also Sony's BabyCall Nursery Monitor NTM-190YLW, praised for its sensitivity, good sound production and excellent battery life. It also has rechargeable batteries, as well as an out-of-range indicator. Plus, it is much cheaper than Avent, with more communication channels (27, in fact) ready for use. Its downsides however, are the fact that it can pick up unwanted transmissions and can be interrupted by other appliances that produces signals.

Lastly, there's Angelcare's Movement Sensor with Sound Monitor that retails at about $85 (more costly than Sony, but cheaper than Philips). It is a pretty impressive and unique baby monitoring device with a motion-sensing pad that alerts parents if the child doesn't move for more than 20 seconds. Now, although this may seem like a practical feature, some experts believe that this is actually somewhat of a nuisance, and have proven it so, with the number of false alarms it generates.

Nevertheless, in choosing, you should consider which one fits your requirements, and not just rely on what experts recommend. This article just includes pieces of additional information you can factor in when making that final decision.
