Baby monitor buying guide, what to look for?

Our baby monitor buying guide will give you the essential features a monitor must have to make sure your baby is safe.

What to look for in a baby monitor

A baby monitor must have clear sound and pictures, a good range and signal strength, and the battery life will last as long as you need it. Most of them promise all of this on the packaging, but it’s not always the case.

So make sure you do your research to find out which baby monitor is really worth buying, after all you don’t want to jump out of bed in the middle of the night to find the parent unit beeping just because it lost connectivity with the baby unit.

  • Signal – analog, digital or digitally enhanced cordless telecommunications (DECT). DETC are the best when it comes to avoiding interference with other radio waves.
  • Range – the maximum distance at which the monitor will work.
  • Size of your house and the thickness and wall composition.
  • Extra features – such as lullabies, a temperature sensor, night light…
  • Video resolution – do you want to be able to see, as well as hear, your child?
  • Plug and play or a hassle to set up?
  • 2 way – to be able to talk back and calm your baby.
  • Connectivity – you don’t want the unit to disconnect and start beeping in the middle of the night.
