When we were kitting out our nursery, this was the one item which I tasked my husband with finding. He is an electronic engineer and a technology enthusiast, so I knew he would take a great deal of time to research and find the best one within our price range.
The video quality of the monitor is by far the best out of any I have seen within my Mummy friends. In fact, every Mummy which has visited our house has asked the make of it, as they cannot get over how fantastic the quality is, for only a very slightly higher price than they paid for theirs.
The video monitor has very handy fucntions such as you can control the camera and make it move around the room to track baby. This is very hand now that our daughter is 8 months and rarely stays in the same spot in her cot for more than 2 seconds until she falls asleep!
It also has a function where you can talk into the room. While I imagine this will be handy once she is older and can understand us, it has proved very useful for sending instructions to my husband while in the baby's room ;)
Finally, it plays music, but we haven't had to use this yet, again, this may be something we use as she gets older.
The only negative I can think of is that the screen turns off after 30 seconds of it being unplugged from the charger and there is no option to change this. I appreciate this is for battery saving, but if I am watching her while washing up/in the bath I have to use wet hands to keep turning it on. Oh and it doesn't do very well to drop it in the bath! It stopped working for 2 days after I dropped it in because I was re-turning the screen on. Luckily after a couple of days in the airing cupboard it dried out. I truly was lost without it for those couple of days though.
For any parent who wants complete peace of mind when their child is asleep this is the baby monitor for you. I was a first time parent earlier this year and was very apprehensive about leaving my child alone when they were sleeping but this video monitor was amazing I could sit downstairs and see exactly what my little girl was doing at all times. The monitor also has the ability to play songs to your child; although beware these are very loud and can sound a little creepy, but still a very good idea. The monitor tells you the temperature in the room, which is always very good to know and you can even link your TV to the monitor so you can view it on a big screen.
The image and sound quality is extremely good and you can see everything even when it is on zoom.
The price is average for a video monitor and I am extremely impressed with this product.
