Baby monitor is one of the most essential security devices when you have a little one at home. Also referred to as baby alarms, it’s basically a type of radio system which remotely captures sound of an infant. The audio monitors come with transmitter unit, accompanied by a microphone- which is placed close to the kid. The sound is transmitted through radio waves into a receiver, with speaker near to or carried by the care-giver or parent. Some of the baby monitors allow a dual communication facility where the parent or care-giver can speak as well.
Added to the audio monitors, you will also find video baby monitors today that come up with video camera, assuring complete visual of the baby on receiver. Some of the advanced baby video monitors are equipped with night-vision feature – you will have them with infrared LEDs that enable clear visual in dark room.
Do you too have a little one at home and you are looking to buy a baby monitor? There is a wide variety of baby monitors around but not all of them would be compatible for you. When it comes to something regarding your child, you would definitely wish for the most suitable device. The post below offers tips on how to buy the right baby monitor.
First of all, you must take time out to get a comparative market survey on 4-6 baby monitor brands. Follow the expert reviews online and go through the user testimonials.

Baby monitors come in both analog & digital version but its advised to take to the latter. Yes, the analog ones are comparatively cheaper yet these can’t promise the high sound quality as offered by the digital option. Moreover, with digital models there’s no chance of eavesdropping.
Look for baby monitors with Digitally Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) technology. These advanced models are able to encrypt audio signals in between transmitter & receiver- DECT video monitors are regarded highly for optimum security benefits. While buying the DECT baby monitors, go for the ones with 1.9 GHz frequency.
Your chosen baby monitor should come up with low-battery indicator facility so that you can always be aware of its power needs.

Baby monitor is well recommended to those who are working parents. They want to get track of their baby in everything he does. Baby audio monitor , I should say, is not so effective as to compare to baby video monitor. I would rather prefer for a baby monitor with video.
I always see this in movies but not recommended for me. Not used to leave children alone and just be aware of their sounds through this. Still good to check your kids time to time, we’ll never know but maybe this is a good option to a working parents.
I must be living under a rock since I don’t know this happens to exist. Cool stuff!

I’m not a mom and neither do I have kids, but I’ve seen baby monitors from my cousins & movies …. it’s something that every Mom ( with a little kid ) should have. I see how convenient it is and how it helps Moms feel more safe for their kids.

I think the battery indicator is important since you like to have the baby monitor on and has power.

I actually do not have any clues on this thing but I love the reviews. If ever I will have babies, I might get this. 🙂

we’ve never really had a baby monitor since my mom and sister-in-law are hands on on their child and our house is just small. But this is really interesting especially if you have to leave your child in a room.
Aisha Kristine Chong says
Oh wow, we have been so advanced with technology that this is the first time I saw this – awesome. Would be great once I have a baby of my own.
Mommy Levy says
This is a good tool for work at home moms who need to do something while the baby is asleep.
I only ever used mine if I was outside to hang the washing or something while my baby was asleep, they are really great for peace of mind
