Safe & Sound Full Color Video and Audio Monitor Review

Party of 5 was sent the VTech Safe & Sound Full Color Video and Audio Monitor for review.

Most of you probably associated VTech with phones and kids toys, right? I did too until I saw these new baby monitors!

Here are some features:
  • Six level sound indicator.
  • Vibrating Sound Alert - Enjoy some added peace by being silently alerted when there is sound in the baby's room.
  • Temperature Sensor - Parent Unit displays baby's room temperature. Be assured the conditions are ideal for restful sleep.
  • Talk-Back Intercom System - Remotely communicate with your baby from the parent unit to the baby unit. Soothe your baby from another room or even from outdoors.

  • Polyphonic Lullabies - Play 5 different lullabies on the camera.
  • Camera Battery Compartment - Add four AA batteries (not included) to the camera for up to 4.5 hours of video streaming.
  • Zoom the camera from the parent unit.
  • Night Viewing - 8 infrared LEDs automatically sense the lighting condition providing full video viewing in dark rooms.
  • Split screen capability - System supports up to four cameras to be viewed from one Parent Unit. Viewing modes include Single View and Quad View Split Screen
  • High Resolution 2.8" Color LCD - Easily view your baby (or babies) from the 320x240 full color display.
  • Full Motion Video - Up to 22 frames per second of full color, dynamic frame rate video provides excellent viewing of all the action in the baby's room.

  • Rechargeable battery with low battery alert in parent unit.
  • Wall Mount Bracket - Safely view your baby from a fixed location. Bracket includes a cord management system for storing excess power cord. Swivel, tilt and zoom the camera for the ideal view.

  • Adjustable camera angle.
  • Extended Range - Up to 1,000 feet of range allows you to feel safe and connected to your child while you go about your day.
  • Digital Transmission - This 2.4GHz Frequency Hopping Digital Spread Spectrum system digitally transmits both the audio and video signals. No annoying white noise sound. You only hear the sounds coming from your baby. All transmissions are encrypted for your privacy and security.

  • Expandable to 4 Cameras - For families with more than one child to monitor, this system can expand to four total cameras. Extra cameras (VM301) sold separately. Know what is happening in all of the important rooms in your home
We were sent an additional camera to review as well since we have the two girls.

I LOVE the quality in the picture of this monitor, however my only BIG complaint is that the monitor does not "pan" the room. I like to be able to check out what my little monkeys are doing in every inch of their rooms.

With our current monitor we weren't able to watch the girls really good while we were in our basement due to the fact that it kept saying " out of range". That is a HUGE bummer since we spent a lot of money on our current monitor and spend a lot of time in our basement{ family room }.

With the VTech Safe & Sound we did NOT have that problem at all, In fact I was able to walk to the corner from my house and still see both girls perfectly!

I HIGHLY recommend the VTech Safe & Sound Full Color Video and Audio Monitor to all new and seasoned parents!!

The VTech Safe & Sound Full Color Video and Audio Monitor retails for $179.99 { with the second camera } and can be found at VTech Baby monitors.com

VERY cool. We're thinking of a video monitor for the twins, so this might be a good one to look into. Thanks for the review!
