With a baby safety monitor the parents or carers can enjoy the freedom of not being in the same room as their little ones whilst they are asleep. They allow the parents to carry on with the day to day activities without the worry of having the baby in the same room. Also if the parents are busy doing jobs or chores in several rooms, they can take advantage of the convenience that a baby safety monitor provides.
A baby safety monitor generally consists of a transmitter unit and receiver unit. The transmitter unit stays close to your baby so it can listen out for the sounds your baby makes. The receiver unit is kept close to mum or dad and can even be carried with a belt clip. As soon as the baby awakes, the parents will immediately go to attend to their baby.
There are all kinds of monitors on the market, so which are the best baby safety monitors? Well most are all as good as each other and the best monitor will depend on the parents own requirements. Some parents will rate certain monitors more than other – it will all depend on personal preference. Being aware of some of the benefits and features to be found in baby monitors will help make a decision which is best for the parents.
There are basically two types of baby safety monitor and these are wired and wireless. A wired monitor has to be installed so that cabling must be run between both the transmitter and receiver units. As cables are being used rather than wireless technology you can expect 100% interference free from this kind of system. But this is really the only advantage of a wired system. Unless you are good at DIY you will have to employ a tradesman to carry out the installation which will add to the cost.
On the other hand the wireless baby safety monitor are so simple to install, it can be done in seconds. Simply switch it on and position it correctly and you're done. These days, modern baby monitors have advanced considerably to interference from other household appliances is almost a thing of the past. Most baby monitors have more than one frequency to choose from so if you find that you have issues on one frequency, then simply switch to another frequency.
Some of the best baby monitors come complete with built in LCD monitors for viewing your baby remotely, from another room around the house. You can also get night vision monitors that use infrared to view your baby while they are sleeping a night. Another great addition is a video output socket so that the images of your baby can be sent to either a VCR for recording or simply a TV set.
So, baby monitors are a fantastic addition for any new parent who wants both the peace of mind that they can be watching over their newborn as well as the freedom to go about their daily day to day routine.
