We purchased the VTech DM111 Safe & Sound DECT 6.0 (etc.,) for use as a monitor to place in my mother's bedroom, after she has suffered a heart attack, and three weeks later, fell and broke her hip. I specifically searched for a unit that was 'TWO-WAY' communication, so that if she called out from the other room, she would be assured that she was heard. The product description specifically says, you can hear and talk to your baby, and scrolling down the page, TWO WAY, SECURE COMMUNICATION is a specifically listed product feature, of the "VTech DM111 Safe & Sound DECT 6.0 Digital Audio Baby Monitor with Belt Clip". I have captures of the screen and product description, and it is very clearly listed as a feature. So I ordered on, on-line and the product arrived today,..
NO TWO-WAY COMMUNICATION,..
Now,.. the product itself is not a bad unit, for the price. The signal is strong, fairly clear, even from across the house. We tested the unit with someone speaking with the bathroom, with the door closed, and the unit across the room, and were still able to hear what was being said. I am pleased with the functions I have, but am disappointed that I did not receive a unit/ product, with two way communication capabilities. Mom and Dad are okay with this, but this is not listed properly, mislabeled, and misleading. "I" would send it back, but hey, that's the way of things these days, and it is a sad state of affairs.
If YOU are looking for a good, strong baby monitor, I would recommend this as a LISTENING MONITOR.
