If you hated all the static buzzes analog baby monitors make but don’t want to spend over $100 to get a DECT monitor, then this Safety First High Def Digital Monitor is your best bet.
Totally No Annoying Static
My sister gave me this baby monitor as a gift earlier when I was still using an analog monitor and I immediately saw the huge difference. I tell you, this monitor is CRYSTAL CLEAR.
I can hear my dearie rustling her blankets when she wakes up and that gives me time to go into her room before she realizes mummy is not there and cries.
And I thought my analog Sony 900mhz was doing well enough in this area because it only emits buzzes when I’m next to wireless signals. This Safety First High Def doesn’t have buzzes at all!
Because this monitor is so clear, it means I hear all the white noises in baby’s room when I’m sleeping at night. If you’re the kind who can’t sleep with white noise, try to keep baby’s room clear of ticking clocks, clicking toys and other things that make noises.
What I Didn’t Quite Like
The only major flaw is that you have to manually turn on the power of this monitor after a power outage. So if you live in an area of frequent storm, a power outage in the middle of the night will mean you have to get up and switch it back on!
I’m in a love-hate relationship with the design. It looks great, really, and I especially like the red bars that show the level of noise coming from baby’s room, but the flashing green light on the transmitter makes me wonder. I’ve taped up the light but that’s weird too.
Well, nothing’s perfect, I guess. For a budget DECT monitor, this Safety First High Def is good enough. You can check out more reviews here at amazon:
