VTech Safe & Sound Baby Monitor Review

 

VTech Safe & Sound Baby Monitor

 

Review:

I love being a dad. I wish I could say I was a perfect dad, but I’m human and make mistakes. Raising a child in this day and age isn’t like Grandpa’s ease of worry. There are so many things to consider that I can barely keep up.

Our children’s safety is always a concern. Is my child cold or too hot, is there a fire, what are they doing, are they sleeping safely? There’s more traffic, more things that can cause an accident, and I barely know my neighbors let alone the people down the street.

And when I saw the VTech “Safe & Sound” full color video and audio monitor, it went right to the top of my list of things to get.

I visited their website and this is what they said about it:

  • Expandable System – Supports up to 4 baby units.
  • Temperature sensor on parent unit displays the temperature in the baby’s room.
  • Talk Back Intercom System – 2 way communication between the units.
  • Infrared LED – Full motion video in light or dark settings.

Sounds pretty good, and now here is what I found:

 

The units are well made and durable. Both the monitor and camera are compact and mobile. They are battery operated so you can take the monitor (or camera) anywhere you go. It also has a battery indicator so that you know how well it is charged. That’s a great feature, and it has a low battery alert so that you can charge the rechargeable battery.

After mounting the camera on the wall or dresser, you can go up to 1000 feet away and still see just as clearly as in the next room. That’s over 3 football fields in length. My home isn’t nearly that big, but it’s nice to know.

A feature that I haven’t gotten to use is the multi-camera view. You can add cameras (up to 4) and watch them all at the same time. The screen splits for more viewing. How cool is that? As my family grows, I can add more cameras as needed.

The hand-held monitor has these features:

  • On/off switching
  • View change for adding cameras
  • Talk button to communicate with your child
  • Volume level
  • 5 lullabies that you can play for your child.
  • A temperature sensor that tells you the temperature in their room
  • Automatic infrared night vision so you won’t disturb them to see them at night
  • You can zoom in and out to see things better
  • And a vibration sound alert to tell you something is happening

Peace of mind and my child’s safety doesn’t have a price. I would give anything and everything to guarantee my family’s safety. Although nothing can guarantee their safety, VTech has done a lot to give me real peace of mind. I can look at the monitor anytime I want (day or night) and see with my own eyes that my daughter is safe and sound; and at a price that’s a lot lower than I expected. Here is a link to their website and you can see for yourself: http://www.babymonitors.vtech.com/babymonitors/index.cfm/shop/video-monitors/

As a parent, I wish the screen was bigger, but then it wouldn’t be very mobile. I like the fact that I can put the monitor in my pocket and go upstairs, downstairs, to the bathroom, in the back yard, garage, you name it; and I can still see my little angel and know without a doubt that she is alright.

Well, I guess you can tell that I am sold on it. I cannot tell you how much better I feel when I look into the monitor and see that all is well. And sometimes, I just want to see her.

No, I’m not perfect, I’m a man. But I care about my family and I am happy we have the VTech Safe & Sound baby monitor. You will be too…

I Started out in 1976 trying out to sing in bands but no bands were interested in me. In 1977 I started playing guitar. The individual that was teaching me (who for now will remain anonymous) told me that I would NEVER learn how to play guitar because I had no sense of rhythm. I joined my first band in 1978 called "Dead Center" in Jacksonville, Florida. I played an Aspen guitar, black; a Les Paul copy and in 1981. I gave that guitar to the teacher who said I'd never learn to play. I wrote my first song in 1979 or '80. Over the years I have been in many bands but my passion has been songwriting. I have written well over 100 songs and though the early ones were kind of rough around the edges, I think that most of them could be dusted off and given a new facelift. Today I am still working on my songs. Currently I can play guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, harmonica, and Native American flute. The flutes that I play are ones that I made myself. My guitars are the Epiphone G-400 faded, an Ibanez RG370 DX, an Epiphone G 1275 double neck guitar. My acoustic guitars are an Alvarez 12 string and an old Kay guitar. My drum set is a Peace drum set. I do my recording on a Zoom HD16.

    You need to find a way to move your baby out of your bed Into His Own His Maintaining security while. Just lveaing HIM to cry Will not Achieve this and you will end up with a very stressed, apologetic baby. On the other hand, it is well Recognized That a baby’s sleeping habits are basically cast in stone by around four months of age. In other words, if h is in your bed at four months it will be traumatic Extremely HIM to move out of your bed until he is old enough to Understand That You have your bed and he has His and That It does not mean you do not want to be with HIM (usually at around four years old.) My Advice. Buy a bassinet if you do not have one. Put baby to sleep on your bed next to you in the bassinet. When he cries, comfort HIM Quickly with your voice, but do not pick HIM up. Keep soothing until he settles. HIM put to sleep in the bassinet During the day too Whichever room you are in at the time. If he cries, soothe with your voice and touch but do not even pick HIM up. Eventually he will associate with the security of the bassinet and Mom will not fret as long as you are close. At this stage place the bassinet in the crib for His daytime sleep. Be quick to soothe but do not pick up. When this starts to go Smoothly try it at night. You will not get much sleep the first nights but he will settle Few After A Few Days. I have HAD four babies, all sleeping through the night in Their Own Hotel from 8 weeks. They all still sleep right through. i never have to get up for the unless Them They Are Sick. Both in the long run you and he will sleep better and be healthier if you Establish a good sleep pattern now.
