Philips Avent Baby Monitor With DECT Technology Keeps Your Nursery Private

 

Baby monitors are pretty much a necessity these days for any new parents.  There are tons of varieties on the market and it can be hard to sift through all the choices to find the one that will be best for you.  One important thing that you might want to think about though, is the privacy of the monitor’s signal.  Some baby monitors tend to pick up signals from outside the home.  As annoying as it can be to have these extra sounds coming through your monitor, it is also kind of creepy to think about the fact that someone else may be picking up sounds from yours.

The Philips Avent Basic Baby Monitor with DECT Technology keeps your nursery completely private with encrypted signals.  It also features 60 channels so that you can choose a clear one without interference.  The advanced sound technology has an enormous 1082 foot range; it also reportedly picks up on the smallest of sounds.  Even more conveniently, the parent unit is cordless and the charge (after charging for 8 hours) lasts for up to 24 hours.  The parent unit will emit a signal when the battery power is low.
 
The unit also allows parents to transmit their voices over the system to help soothe the baby back to sleep without entering the room.  A soft nightlight on the baby unit adds another peaceful element.  You can find the Avent monitor here.

DECT baby monitor

For many years the baby monitor has been a help to parents. The one difficulty with many models is that they often pick up other unrelated noises like cellphone or wireless phone calls, or static interference, causing interruptions in sleep or bad reception. One technology that has been applied to monitors to keep interference to a minimum is DECT, or digital enhanced cordless telecommunications.
One of the first companies to introduce the DECT baby monitor was Phillips®, and first models begin to roll out in the mid 2000s. These were considerably pricier than other monitors, and early prices were as high as $200 US Dollars (USD). Of course the monitors featured lots of bells and whistles in addition to the DECT technology. It had both temperature and humidity sensors which could alert parents if levels of moisture or temperature needed to be adjusted in a room. The DECT baby monitor also featured flashing lights on the receiving side, so that the monitor could be turned down but would flash if sounds were made. Additionally, the monitor had a tape deck on the transmitting end to play music to soothe babies.
