Vtech Safe&Sound Pan & Tilt Baby Monitor



VTech recently reached out and wanted me to take a look at their Safe&Sound Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Monitor. It was the perfect timing as the monitor I had been using broke and I wasn’t sure what I was going to replace it with.




With my oldest, I had a regular baby monitor, there wasn’t an option to get a video one yet. So when I had my youngest and had the option of a video monitor, I took it. I don’t think I could go back to one.


With VTech’s Safe&Sound You can pretty much start using it as soon as you get it out of the box. You can mount the camera to the wall or just sit it on a shelf (what I did). As long as you are within 1,000 feet of the camera you will be able to see your little one. You read that right, 1,000 feet.





The screen on the monitor seems small (2.8 inches), but in reality it’s not bad. I’m just used to looking at my way to big cell phone. It’s in full color and you use it to control the camera. I was happy to see that you can move the camera to zoom in, and to look around the room. It’s not in a fixed view.


Besides the zoom and pan feature, the one feature I like the most is that I can use it to talk to my daughter, not just listen. I can’t put her to bed most nights due to my health, so my husband or oldest daughter helps me. With the new monitor, I can see them and sing her “nah night song”. It’s not the same singing it to her in the living room, I’d much rather sing it with her as she’s being laid down. With the Safe&Sound I can do that.


You can also use up to 4 cameras with each parent unit (monitor). I think that’s cool as nobody wants to figure out which monitor goes with which camera and you also save buying just adding more cameras instead of buying the whole unit each time.  




Features


  • Temperature sensor
  • Digital transmission
  • Wall-mount bracket
  • Vibrating sound-alert on the parent unit
  • Rechargable battery with low-battery alert on the parent unit
  • Zoom the camera from the parent unit
  • 5-level sound indicator
  • Volume control
If you are looking to buy a new monitor or even for a baby gift, I would consider this one from VTech. I would definitely put this into the best of 2015 for baby monitors.

  5. Wow, that is a fancy baby monitor. We have two different ones - a basic audio one, and a deluxe audio one that supposedly registers the temperature of the room and has an intercom. Honestly it's a bit flaky, so we default to the basic -- if we use one. My cousin has a neat video one that looks similar to this one. They have two video monitors and it alternates channels on the receiver so they can check on both kids as needed.

  7. Sounds like a great monitor to have in any home. Back when I used them with my children they looked so different. Love the modern look now.

  8. I wish I have one of this helpful gadget when my kids were little. This is great to have when you have little ones since you can watch them even when you are not around or near them.

  11. When my kids were first born I wanted one of these so badly...but then I realized that our walls are so thin and that I could hear every grunt, moan, and cry and so I made due without it! lol!

  15. I think baby monitors are so cool; I'd probably just sit there and stare like a cat to a goldfish bowl if I ever had a monitor…or a baby. Very cool that it has a temperature sensor.

  16. A baby monitor is such a great gift idea. I bought my son and his wife one when they were expecting and their daughter's almost two now and they still use it all of the time!

  22. I never used baby monitors with my kids, because they were always good about being in their beds and staying at least, nothing a lil cry out doesn't fix.
