Customer Reviews

Also, it has a neat feature -- you can use it as an intercom.

We have had some issues with the parent unit battery charge, it does not last long, and sometimes we can't get it to charge at all.
J. North
This one is completely quiet unless the baby is making noise, and then it is crystal clear with no background hiss or static.

Size Name: One parent unit
We recently moved our daughter to her big-girl room, which is quite far away from our bedroom. We keep doors closed at night so as not to disturb her, so we need a monitor that we could keep on all night at our bedside in case she wakes up or cries for help.

Performance

The Philips SCD 589 works perfectly as advertised. With the sensitivity set to normal (3 of 5 bars), the receiver always come alive virtually instantly and transmits every noise in her room clearly without any popping/cracking sounds. But as soon as the room is quiet, the receiver mutes to complete silence without even a hum or buzz. We have tried a number of other monitors and none have come close audio-wise. We leave the receiver on overnight at the nightstand and you'd forget it's there unless sound is transmitted.

Features

The UI is simple and intuitive, while the physical design is elegant and tasteful. For example, soft amber signal lights, rather than giant red glow (you know the brand), are used to indicate sound transmission. The receiver is small enough to fit in your pocket to help you look less like paranoid parents. The two-way communication feature could come in handy with spouse or older children. We are not using the lullaby/nightlight feature much, but that maybe useful for younger babies. And the remote temperature display is a rare advantage over the competition that further sets this product apart. The docking/charging simplifies daily operation significantly. The receiver uses 2 AAA rechargable Ni-MH and could be replaced with standard AAA's in the event they run out. From the small dimensions to industrial design to build quality, the product is top-notch.

Summary

The SCD 589 performs outstandingly.

Size Name: One parent unit
With three kids, this is our 5th baby monitor. This is the first one that is crystal clear. When they say there is no interference, they are not kidding. The quality of reception is simply fantastic.

The monitor comes with some features we really don't need or use (things like the temp. in the baby's room, the ability to turn the built-in night light on or off, the ability to play a lullaby remotely, and the ability to talk to your baby remotely). They all work nicely, but the were not on our list of needed features. If you seek some of these, great.

Now, some of the quirks. These are not performance issues, but things that you should know before you drop this much money on a monitor. First, every monitor I have seen before was a constant transmission of sound. You can sit and listen to your baby breathing and so forth. This monitor ceases transmission when the baby is not making any noise, and then resumes transmission as soon as there is any activity. The sensitivity of that cut-off is adjustable. Still, this does take some getting used to before you can relax about it, esp. in the middle of the night. Second, the button that is pressed to trigger the talk function is on the left side of the parent unit. We have pressed it more than once when just moving the monitor around. This is a very good way to wake your baby by accident. Once we realized how easy it was to hit this, we both changed our way of grabbing the monitor. Not a big deal at all, but worth noting before you have a loud conversation that your broadcast to your kid's room.

Our monitor had a problem charging (a short in the switch or something), and Philips swapped it out with no questions asked. So, a good score on customer service.

Lastly, we turned this on in a house with two other baby monitors, cordless phones operating on two different frequencies, and a wireless network in the house. No interference with anything.

Size Name: One parent unit
We had an 8-yr-old baby monitor that had an intercom feature we had come to consider essential. But the unit we had from our 1st baby had a broken button on the receiver and buzzed like crazy all the time so we wanted to replace it. This was the only monitor that was 900mhz (didn't want to interfere w/our 2.4 wireless network in the house, & more powerful signal is a bit scary to put by your heads as you sleep & overkill to boot) & also had an intercom feature. We have 3 children, 1 baby still in our room with us & 2 in their room down the hall. This is both highly sensitive to the slightest noise from their rm. and completely silent when there isn't any sound to broadcast. The remote features e.g. turning on lights or lullabies for the baby/child's room are neat & nice, the adjustable sensitivity is great- really will respond to the slightest sound if you have it at a lower sensitivity, or can be set to broadcast constantly & will do so w/o extra noise. The intercom is nice for letting a child know you're coming, or asking if they need you at all, or of course, playing around. Battery life has been fine but we hardly use the receiver out of the charger. Completely fulfills its claims.

We bought this to replace the Graco iMonitor (see my review for why we didn't like that one). I wanted a digital monitor to avoid interference with all our wireless gadgets and neighbors baby monitors...plus I didn't like the idea of someone being potentially able to hear *my* baby on the monitor!

All told if you are a light sleeper and don't want to hear static, beeping, and extraneous noise - just when your baby needs you! - this is the perfect monitor.

Pros:
- Zero interference or static in two months' use
- Never lost signal
- Adjustable sensitivity. The monitor ONLY broadcasts when the baby makes noise! It can detect things like the A/C and even the mobile music and recognize them as background noise and not broadcast them. (If you are paranoid and want to hear all sounds from the room, just set the sensitivity to maximum and it will broadcast constantly).
- If it does lose the signal (I had to turn off the base to test this) it doesn't start beeping right away. It tries to reconnect for about 30 seconds, and then beeps if unable. (The iMonitor started beeping immediately which was not really helpful in the middle of the night. I can cope without hearing my baby for 30 seconds.)
-Temperature monitoring and alert
-Lullaby - we don't use this much but it is nice to be able to turn it on remotely if the baby wakes up unexpectedly - it has helped settle him a couple times
- Uses regular AAA rechargable batteries. You can put regular batteries in it too - just do something to remind yourself NOT to put it in the charger if you do that!

Cons:
These are not so much reasons not to buy as things that were either pointless or should be better designed on a $200 monitor
- The charger is a little temperamental.
