Adjustable Sound Sensitivity and Crystal-Clear Audio
The DECT Baby Monitor's volume level and sound sensitivity is adjustable to the noise level of your environment, which means that you'll be able to hear your baby over the television, dishwasher, or lawnmower. And thanks to DECT technology, the monitor will capture every one of your baby's gurgles, hiccups, and giggles with perfect clarity.

LEDs and Audible Alert Signal the Noise Level in Your Baby's RoomLEDs and Audible Alert Signal the Noise Level in Your Baby's Room
Lights on the top of the DECT Baby Monitor's parent unit are activated to indicate the level of sound in your baby's room. Even when muted, the parent unit will sound an alert that notifies you when a set sound level is reached.

Electronic Sensor Tracks the Temperature of Your Nursery
Your baby can't regulate body temperature as well as you can, and a slight change in temperature can make your baby restless. That's why the DECT Baby Monitor is designed with a special electronic temperature sensor. The digital display on the parent unit will immediately alert you if your baby's room becomes too hot or too cold.

Talk Back, Nightlight, and Lullabies Help Soothe Your Baby
Sometimes all your fussing baby needs is the soothing sound of your voice to calm down. With one click of the DECT Baby Monitor's Talk Back feature, you can connect with your baby from anywhere in your home. And for those times when your coos aren't enough, you can use the baby unit to select one of five soothing lullabies that will invite sleep in no time. You can also help soothe and calm your little one with the warm tranquil glow of the night light that can be activated from the baby unit.

The Philips Avent Baby Monitor offers both a crisp sound and exceptional range in a audio-only baby monitor.

A few notes

- Offers you the ability to set a temperature range for the monitor. If the room is outside of the temperature range you will get an alarm. This could be helpful for parents who are worried about cold winter nights (or hot summer nights!).

- Very crisp sound - resemble a phone call

- Nice intercom system -

- Base unit play lullabies and has a built-in night light, however neither feature can controlled by the hand unit. This the main reason why I am removing 1/2 star.

- Price - It is odd that an audio only system is in the same price range as audio + video units such as Levana BABYVIEW20 Interference Free Digital Wireless Video Baby Monitor with Night Light Lullaby Camera and the Lorex LW2002W Portable LCD Wireless Surveillance System (White)

- Hand held unit comes with rechargeable batteries. The base unit takes 4 AA as a battery back-up.

- Range - I have never had an issue with range. I have perfect clarity even when I in our front yard.

Final verdict - Probably the best audio-only baby monitor that I have ever used (and I have tried several). I am a little disappointed that the hand unit can not control the lullabies and the night light, but as a whole I am very impressed.

4 1/2 Stars

I was very disappointed in this monitor. We have a Philips AVENT SCD520 that is about 2 years old and it's a wonderful product. So much so that when our second child was on the way we decided to get another Philips monitor so we could have one in each child's room. We ordered the SCD525 thinking that it would be pretty much the same as the SCD520 -- after all it's just an updated version, and looks almost identical, right?

We have made a lot of use of the lullaby feature on the SCD520. It plays for about 15 minutes and then shuts off. On the SCD525, the lullaby plays for only about 3 or 4 minutes before shutting off. This is not nearly long enough -- not many kids are going to be soundly asleep after only a few minutes most of the time. Also, unlike the crystal clear sound quality of our SCD520, the SCD525 had a significant buzz/hum (and yes I tried it with the other monitor shut off as well) -- not what I'd expect from an expensive digital monitor. I called Philips customer service and they were very helpful. They agreed that the lullaby should play for more than a few minutes and sent me a replacement monitor.

Well, the replacement was exactly the same as the original, both in terms of the short lullaby and the poor sound quality. I called Philips again, and after waiting about 2 weeks for a response from higher-level tech support the word came back that the lullaby is only supposed to play for a few minutes -- in other words, it's a "feature." Uh-huh. Sounds to me like they have a bug in the firmware. So I returned the replacement to Philips, the original to Amazon, and subsequently purchased the SCD530, with which I am very pleased (I didn't buy that one in the first place because I didn't need the hygrometer feature and wanted to save a little money).

Bottom line: the SCD520 and SCD530 are good products, the SCD525 not so much.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When I first discovered that this unit had temp/humidity alarms, I was temped to monitor my basement where I brew beer, but I then remembered why I ordered this unit. Worry not, I didn't put the baby in the basement with the beer to accomplish both aims, but the thought may have crossed my mind. The problem is that this unit does such a great job at monitoring sounds and sending them magically over with a clear crisp sound, so it would be a waste to just use the temp/humidity ability. So few monitors get this basic ability to send clear sound all wrong, so kudos to Philips for doing it right. The lullabies and light on the base is another plus, and before you know it, you're wondering why you looked at anything else.

$100 is a lot, but it's a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Verified Purchase
When I bought this baby monitor, I was looking for three basic qualifications:

1) A digital monitor (for privacy).
2) Sufficient range to get a reliable, clear signal (no dropped signals, interference, or static) throughout my modest 2-story, 1600 sq. ft. house, including in the basement and basement garage. Keep in mind I have lathe and plaster walls, which I believe can degrade a signal more than typical drywall walls.
3) Lights that alert you to baby's noise if you have the parent unit volume turned down.

Reviews seem VERY mixed on most digital monitors as far as reliability and range are concerned, many reviews being weighted towards the low end of 1 - 3 stars. The (relatively expensive) Philips/Avent line of digital DECT monitors, however, stood out from the rest of the pack with 4 -5 stars across the board. So I took the plunge with hopes that this monitor would fit my needs perfectly, and with the exception of a few minor complaints, I'm completely satisfied. This monitor even has a few handy bonus features that are icing on the cake.

The Good:
1) This monitor has a rock solid signal throughout my entire house (when not set to Eco mode), with the exception of my concrete-walled garage. However, even in my garage, if I leave the parent unit in a specific corner of the garage, I still obtain a perfect signal, which meets my needs.
2) A variety of bonus features that allow for personal customization, such as:
- baby unit microphone sensitivity.
- temperature display with programmable temperature alarm if baby's room gets to hot or cold.
- an Eco mode which conserves the parent unit battery power if you don't need full transmitting power.
