I don't have a 2.4 Ghz phone or other obvious interference.
TG
After a short time, the parent unit would screech an alarm - BEEP BEEP BEEP, for no apparant reason.
Austin's Mom
Get the Angel Care instead, it's a bit more expensive, but it's worth every penny.

Our search for a baby monitor resulted in several weeks of buying and returning over $300 worth of models. At last, however, we tried The First Years Clear and Near 2.4GHz monitor. I think we have a winner!
We were surprised because things went so smoothly with the purchase of our first monitor, a Safety First Crystal Clear 49MHz model, three years ago. We bought two sets on clearance for $10 each, and they work flawlessly!
During our search this time, we quickly discovered that other 49MHz models caused a lot of interference with our first monitor set, even when set to different channels. We were able to get marginally acceptable results after moving the units from outlet to outlet within our house, but the static was still loud enough to be bothersome, and we worried that we wouldn't hear the baby over it.
We then tried several 900MHz monitors. Many of these claim better reception than 49MHz models, but really it seems to be dependent on the nature of other electronic equipment in your home and neighborhood. For example, we had pretty good results with the Sony Baby Call 27 channel 900MHz model during the daytime, but during the evening when more of our neighbors were home using more electronics (such as cordless phones), we had so much interference as to make this model completely useless--even after cycling through the 27 available channels. Other 900MHz models had similar results.
Also, we found several 900MHz models that use "background noise cancellation" in order to conserve batteries. This was a feature that we absolutely hated. There were times that these would mistake our daughter's cries as "background noise" and not transmit, or stop transmitting after a few seconds.

I love this monitor! We originally bought the Graco Listen and Talk which worked well except on weekends. The only thing we could figure out was that Dulles Airport re-directed air traffic on weekends and we picked up a lot of interference. The Safety First monitor was almost flawless. The unit does pick up the slightest baby sounds, so beware not to have the volume too loud on the parent unit. There was some interference which was caused by our 2.4Ghz Panasonic expandable phone answering machine (model KX-TG2730). This interence resulted in a popping sound coming from the parent unit every second. At night, we just unplugged the answer machine which resulted in crystal clear reception from the monitor. While no company has created a perfect baby monitor, this one sure came close.

I can't say enough good things about this monitor! If you are like me, you research and review purchases like this one. This is the fourth baby monitor we have bought and is by far, the very best. I can't imagine having any problems with this. No static, great reception and great features. The rechargeable "no memory" batteries are wonderful. You do not have to wait until they are running low to recharge. We use the battery power during the daytime nap and then plug in each night. You'll love it! The parent unit "finding" button is nice, but the parent unit needs to be on for it to operate. It does not help us much since our parent unit is generally off when we need to locate it. Hope you like it as much as we do!

I put this monitor on my registry because the description said that it had excellent range and it had good reviews. Well it does have good range but there is so much static and interference that I can hardly stand to use it. I called The First Years customer service because I thought there had to be something wrong with it and they simply said, if you have a 2.4 GHZ cordless phone in your house, this monitor is not for you. I wish I knew that before I got it! I got it as a gift, don't have the box anymore and have to go out and buy a new one. I told the customer service rep that I also have a 900 MHZ phone in my house and she said then I need to get a monitor that is not in that range either. Hope this info helps!

The monitor I had started making this clicking noise all the time. It drove me crazy so I searched for a new one and found the Clear and Near 2.4Ghz Monitor by First Years. I actually purchased it through Amazon.com as well. I am so happy with it! It is so clear that I can hear my son's clock ticking in the background.
My only advice is to make sure the channels are set the same on both units. My toddler must have changed the channel of the child unit and therefore the red indicator light came on signaling that the unit was out of range but it was still picking up the sounds...then in the middle of the night the parent unit started beeping loudly as if we would have been pushing the locator button on the child unit yet everyone was asleep. Long story...a little longer...my husband and I awoke to this loud beeping and it took a minute before we realized what was going on. At first it scared us like our house alarm was going off. But since we've set the channels both on "A" again we have had no problems. These units are lightweight yet durable. They are truly worth the money!
