Finally, NO static!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Angelcare Baby Sound Monitor, White (Baby Product)
Bought this as a replacement for the Fisher-Price Sounds 'N Lights Dual Receiver Monitor M5578 which was horrible because of static and poor sound sensitivity.
This monitor has been among the best I've ever used (I've had many over the last 6 years).
1. Very sensitive. There is a sensitivity control on the back of the base station which works great. You can even hear the kids breathing or whispering. The Fisher-Price would only work if my kid was screaming.
2. NO static or interference. Finally, a monitor that doesn't pick up stray radio programs or endless clicking and static. There can be a slight buzz if it's searching for a new channel but that's it. The Fisher-Price would buzz when trucks drove by or airplanes flew overhead, but this monitor doesn't do that.
3. Has multiple channels to select from to give you the clearest signal. Great if your neighbors have the same monitor so you don't listen to each other.
4. Excellent range. Good for at least 75 feet in my experience. Will even warn you if out of range.
5. Receiver uses rechargeable batteries which you can change yourself. You can upgrade the batteries if you want them to last longer, but this hasn't been a problem for me. Has lasted at least two days without needing recharge.
Only comes with one receiver. Most monitors come with two. You can get two if you buy the motion sensitive pad which I didn't need/want.
Almost the perfect baby monitor. No static, good range, very sensitive, and lots of usable features.

I have the deluxe version with the sensor pad and loved it since we were first time parents. Now that we no longer need the sensor pad, I plan on buying this one for sound/temperature. The screen is small 2" maybe and you do have to look directly at it at the right angle to view the display (other angles it looks like everything is on), but that really didn't bother me. The sound indicator was helpful for me. I'm also looking at the Philips Avent DECT monitor with temp/humidity sensors, but my gut says to go with this one which we're already familiar with. good luck.

Thanks for the detailed review. I'm purchasing this for my elderly mother with and for whom my sister and I care. Right now, mom rings a bell if she needs help getting up during the night. But my sister and I are beginning to DREAM she's ringing for us, and that impairs our sleep. So we thought a baby monitor would do the trick. I'm going to buy this one based on your review. Thank you!!
