The VTech Baby Monitor – Safe & Sound Digital Audio Baby Monitor is designed to be an affordable unit that can be used in place of many of the more expensive baby monitors which are available on the market. The unit is popular largely because of the reputation that VTech has with regard to the sales of its other types of equipment such as phones and other electronics. However, it is important to carefully review any type of product before you purchase it rather than relying solely on the reputation of the company which is selling the product. This can save you many headaches later on, especially when it is a relatively new product that has not been widely used before.
The monitor has many features that make the product appealing at first glance. For example, it can be programmed to vibrate instead of emitting an audio sound, thereby alerting you without waking up the entire household in the process. Moreover, it also has a talk-back feature which allows you to speak to your child if your child becomes agitated. Additionally, it features a night light which can be programmed to come on automatically, effectively eliminating the need to purchase a separate night light for your child’s room. The monitor also has an audio feature to alert you whenever the battery gets low so that it does not inadvertently turn off without your being aware.
There are many good things about the unit, including the fact that it is packed with all of these features. It also utilizes the same technology that VTech has used on many of its other electronics, making it one of the more reliable baby monitors available on the market. Units made by the company typically have relatively few problems concerning quality and reliability. In addition, the unit costs far less than most of the other units that are available on the market, sometimes as much as 1/3 of the cost of comparable units that have similar features. This is important for anyone who is trying to save money. The VTech Safe & Sound Baby Monitor is also available with either a single parent unit or for a little bit more with two parent units.
However, regardless of how good a unit is there are always some things that you should be aware of. This particular unit has a rather short battery life, so if you need to use it for more than 6 hours it is highly recommended that you keep it plugged in and do not expect it to operate on battery power alone. In addition, some individuals have reported that the unit does not always pick up when their child is crying and then when it does pick up, it often has poor sound coming from the speakers which makes it virtually impossible to clearly hear what is going on.
