I’ve never thought that analog baby monitors can work as well as digital ones, until I tried this Sony 900 Mhz BabyCall for myself. This is the best basic baby monitor around, if you’re just looking for something that can notify you when baby is making noises.
Analog Monitor with Least Interference
The greatest thing about this baby monitor is that it works on 900mhz frequency, a rare feature for analog monitors, and because I don’t have any other 900mhz devices in my house, it means no interference for me.
Do check your home devices before you buy, because other users have claimed that even one device with the same frequency will cause static.
Sony 900 Mhz BabyCall also has 27 channels so that if I’m too near (right next) to any wireless signals like our phones or video game controllers, I can always switch channels and find one without interference.
Cheap and Basic but Works Great!
I go around my house wearing this device on my belt and complete my daily chores while baby is sleeping, and I can baby breathing as clearly as if he was next to me.
Sometimes when I want to watch tv, I just put it on voice activation setting and the receiver will not give me the white noise but only turn on when baby is crying. I often forgot that it was on and got quite a few jumps when baby suddenly cried.
The range is quite good and if I ever wander out of range, the receiver will make beeps to inform me, but this gets annoying sometimes because I can’t turn the beeps off.
Oh, and did I mention it’s water resistant? Once I accidentally dropped it into a pail of water, and I’m surprised that when I hurriedly fish it out, it’s still working!
Overall the Sony 900 Mhz BabyCall is the best for its price. Great for very basic use, so mums who prefer a cheap baby monitor without all the high tech stuff, get this one!
I recommend that you buy this at amazon because they have a very good return policy and there’s a 20% discount while I’m writing this.
