Do you know what you need to look for in a baby monitor these days? It can be very confusing with so many on the market I must say. All those different brands and manufacturers, price ranges and features. Luckily though we’ll give you our take on what to look out for and what to avoid when purchasing one. We won’t be giving out any specific models to go for, so if it’s a list of recommended models to purchase, then check out this baby monitor comparison guide.
In terms of features firstly you need to identify whether you want an audio or video only model. Audio costs less but obviously only has audio capability, hence the name. Video costs more and usually includes a video image that you can watch. Both have their pros and cons, it’s just a matter of identifying what works for you and your baby. Battery consumption is another thing you want to look out for, as you don’t want to buy a baby monitor that’s constantly running out of charge. Price is one of the biggest sticking points for parents when looking to buying a monitor, and this really comes down to preference. If you just want a basic no thrills option at a cheap price, then go with one of the lesser named audio models. If you’re looking for a video monitor that’s long lasting and has a good name behind it such as Angelcare, then you obviously will pay for what you get. Note though, that it’s not the case that the more you spend the better the child monitor, no, you can easily get one for dirt cheap that will last you a long time.
It all comes down to preference when purchasing one, so remember to browse about online checking out reviews of baby monitors.
