Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5★ by 194reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Didn't last even 3 days I purchased these for my daughter and went to use them after her son was born. At the beginning of the third day they started beeping and saying that the battery was low, even while being plugged in. They won't hold a charge, no matter what. To replace the rechargeable battery cost just as much as buying another set so I am going to buy a different brand now. 02/12/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great features! We've had a generic, no bells and whistles monitor for my oldest and now into my 2nd's toddler stage but it is dying. With baby #3 on the way we decided we needed to get a new one. We've been using it with our toddler and it has so far been great! I love the extra features especially considering the price. Compared to our old monitor it did take some getting used to. You can set the sensitivity level from 1-5, 5 being the most sensitive (picks up background noise and you can hear every little thing). I initially thought that the monitor wasn't working when I set it to sensitivity levels 1 or 2 because I could hear my little guy from his room but not through the monitor right away. I was so used to hearing his fan running and every noise through our old monitor so I started to worry it was broken. I realized however that on less sensitive settings there is no noise at all coming from the monitor until it registers a change in the sound level. It's really sensitive too. I have a heater that will kick on occasionally in his room and the monitor will register that for a few seconds. So when my little guy starts crying it takes a second or two to register and turn on the parent unit. Very nice feature, especially for older kids when you don't want to hear every noise in their room.I also love the rechargeable battery pack in the parent unit. I keep the plug by my bedside and plug it in at night and then just bring down the parent unit in the morning and turn it on during my boy's nap time. The battery stays fully charged for me after charging all night. I've even left the parent unit on most of the day accidently and it is still fully charged at the end of the day. 02/17/2014
Rated 2 out of 5★ by OK, But I will be returning... We just bought this and tried it out for a few days, and I'm disappointed so sending it back. We have had the AngelCare Deluxe monitor for the past 2 years and have really enjoyed it, but we're adding baby #2 and needed another monitor. We didn't want to spend a ton of money, so we bought this one.The main issues I have with this are:1.) The sensitivity is too touchy/loud. We have a sound machine in my son's room, so I like the baby monitor to be turned down quite a bit at night when me and my husband are sleeping (just loud enough for me to hear him if he cries, but not so loud that I hear every single noise). I tried adjusting the sensitivity of this monitor down to 1 or 2, but then nothing was coming out of the speakers. I had to keep it at 3+ in order to hear anything, and then that seemed way too loud. Basically, I didn't care for the volume settings and felt they were a little loud.2.) I get quite a bit of static feedback over the monitor, which isn't a big deal during the day, but at night when I'm trying to get to sleep it really bothers me. I've tried playing around with it to see what is causing the feedback but nothing I did resolved it.3.) No temperature setting. I like knowing the temperature in baby's room (esp. when they are newborns), so this was a con for me.Other than that, if you're looking for a cheap monitor and don't mind the volume being so loud/sensitive then I think you'd be making a good decision in purchasing this one. However, if you're looking for something with more options in the sensitivity settings, volume control, and overall features then I highly recommend the Angelcare Deluxe. We'll be returning the Vtech for another Angelcare. 02/24/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by simple easy works great Very easy to set up. I like the parental unit being able to talk to the baby. the sound is clear and the range is adequate for my needs. 03/02/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by so far so good I haven't had this long but it seems to be doing the job. I bought it to know if an elderly friend with dementia that I take care of is OK. If I am in another room, day or night, or in the yard I can hear her. 03/04/2014
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Horrible Montior I bought this montior because I thought it was so amazing that I could talk to my children threw the parent monitor, which that part works great, but it doesnt transmit or hear when my daughter is crying. The only time I know when she is crying is after I hit the talk button then afterwards it kicks in and starts working for less than 5 mintues. So disapointed in this baby montior I would return it but I through away the box. So now I am letting my 7 year old use it as a toy/walkie talkie. 03/02/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great for Older Kids Too I purchased two of these monitors; that way I could keep in touch with both of my children from across the house. The best part is that I can talk back to them. ( I love that feature.) When they call me at night, I can press the button and respond immediately. Funny thing is, they each had friends over last week and I could hear every word. I love them. 03/06/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Much needed Got this to use because our room is downstairs and our sons room is upstairs. Love how you can talk to him while you are downstairs by pressing the talk button. This was a great purchase and this will be saved for the future kids. 04/03/2014
