VTech Safe and Sound Baby Monitors



VTech understands that for parents, selecting the right baby monitor is an important decision, based on each family’s unique needs. Today, VTech® Communications, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of VTech Holdings Limited. (HKSE: 303), announced the addition of four new monitors to its award-winning Safe&Sound® baby monitor line. With new models that come standard with 1,000 feet of range and various feature combinations that can include temperature sensors, a talk-back intercom, glow-on-ceiling night light, audio and video options, and rechargeable batteries on the parent units, parents can feel confident that they have a reliable, high-quality system. 

“Every family approaches parenting differently, so we’ve designed an assortment of Safe&Sound® baby monitors that allow parents to choose the best unit for their style. Whether they want a simple audio monitor or would prefer an option with audio, video and soothing lullabies, VTech offers the product versatility that they need,” said Matt Ramage, senior vice president, sales and product management, VTech.

When considering a baby monitor, parents should also think beyond the immediate needs of infants or toddlers. VTech’s products come equipped with features that can be used as children enter early stages of independence and additional monitors can be added to the system to keep an eye on multiple children in different rooms. Some families even use the monitors to ensure their pets aren’t getting into any mischief.
                                                                                                                                                     
VTech’s 2015 baby monitor line includes four new products with rich features at competitive prices:
  • VTech Safe&Sound Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Monitor (VM343)—Scanning a baby’s room from the parent unit has never been easier thanks to the VM343 monitor’s remote pan and tilt camera featuring 2x zoom. Full-color video equipped with night vision on a large 4.3-inch LCD screen ensures parents always have the most vivid image of their child. When little ones need soothing, parents can use the two-way, talk-back intercom without entering their child’s room. The monitor can expand up to four cameras, allowing parents to keep an eye on their little ones from multiple rooms at the same time. Digital transmission ensures all videos are private and secure, while cutting down on background noise.

  • VTech Safe&Sound Full Color Video Monitor (VM341)—In addition to monitoring your baby on a full-color, 4.3-inch screen, this model comes equipped with lullabies, white noise and three additional nature sounds, doubling as a helpful tool in soothing your baby to sleep. For parents in need of some quiet time, they can mute the parent unit, but still easily monitor sound in their baby’s room through graphic bars on the parent unit that indicate the level of sound on a scale from zero to nine and a vibrating sound alert.

  • VTech Safe&Sound® Full Color Video and Audio Baby Monitor (VM312)—Full motion video with up to 22 frames per second ensures you never miss a move your child makes. Eight infrared LEDs provide clear video even in dark rooms and a temperature sensor lets you know when it’s time to adjust the thermostat. Thanks to the talk-back intercom, parents can comfort their little ones from any room while viewing them on a 2-inch high resolution, color LCD screen.

  • VTech Safe&Sound® Digital Audio Baby Monitor with Glow-on-Ceiling Night Light (DM222)—This model features a lullaby and a glow-on-ceiling night light that projects a moon and stars scene to soothe and calm your baby. This audio-only monitor has a full 1,000 feet of range so parents can clip on the parent unit and move about their house and even yard with confidence they are still getting a signal. And parents can rest assured their monitor is protected against interference and eavesdropping with its DECT 6.0 technology.

“Since its entrance into the category, VTech’s baby monitor line is continually recognized for its smart features and strong value,” said Ramage. “We listen to our customers’ needs and refine our products to ensure we exceed expectations for quality monitors that provide peace of mind.”

My Thoughts

I got to review the VTech Safe&Sound® Full Color Video Monitor (VM341), and I was very impressed with this baby monitor. You're able to communicate with the baby, which is pretty neat if your child just needs to hear your voice. Instead of needing to go in there, you can tell your baby everything is okay and attempt to soothe them that way.

The monitor is in color and displays the temperature to the room the child is in. The screen is very clear. I was very surprised by how good it was. There were many things you could do with the screen. Such as having it stay off and only turning on when the child made a sound. Even when dark and it flips to nighttime view, the picture is still clear, letting you see the child perfectly.

The camera in the child's room isn't overly large. You can hang it up or set it on a dresser or other furniture. I really enjoyed all the options for music on it to play for the child. Or even noises like the chirping of bugs outside, the sound of water, or even the classic white noise.

The batteries are rechargeable and the device can be used while plugged in. You also have a 1,000 foot range away from the camera.

A great baby monitor. The perfect gift or accessory for your nursery. This is one that I would definitely recommend.

Incredible! I cannot believe how far baby monitors have come. If you had told me 20 years ago when my son was born that someday I could see him, not just listen with a static-y monitor I wouldn't have believed you. V-tech is definitely the best!

Wish I'd had something like this 40 years ago. Very handy.
