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.
