Baby Monitor Buying Guide

Buying the best quality baby monitor you can afford is well worth the investment in ensuring your child’s health and your peace of mind. The most important considerations in your choice of baby monitor should include sound and video signal quality, range of reception, price, general ease of use and portability of the parent unit.

Key questions to ask before purchasing:
– Will you be using the baby monitor in the garden or moving from room to room in your home?
– Do you plan on travelling with your monitor?
– Do you want to see as well as hear your child?
– What type of property do you live in?
– Is the baby monitor safe for your nursery?
– Do you require remote access?
– Do you require a motion sensor?
– Do you require a baby monitor with more than one baby unit?

Beneficial special features in higher end baby monitors
