VTech offers a wide variety of products for everyone in your household. Today, we’re focusing on VTech for baby! I recently had the chance to check out the Safe & Sound Full Color Video and Audio Monitor VM321 from VTech. As soon as I opened it up, I was immediately impressed!
“The VTech Safe & Sound Full-Color Video and Audio Monitor (VM321, MSRP: $149.95) provides a full audio/visual monitoring solution with up to 1,000 feet of range. Other unique features include a split video screen, enabling simultaneous viewing from up to four separate cameras with the purchase of additional cameras (VM310, MSRP: $49.95), along with infrared night-vision as well as a two-way intercom system to let the little one hear parents? voices, polyphonic lullabies to play and a temperature sensor.”
The Safe & Sound Full Color Video and Audio Monitor VM321 is unlike the monitor I used with my kids in so many ways. First of all, it’s video! As if that’s not exciting enough, you can actually talk back to the baby! That’s amazing because sometimes all they want is to hear your voice to soothe them back to sleep.
The full color video screen is great for watching baby sleep and just checking up on them. When baby cries, one look at the monitor will help you determine what is wrong. Since babies often just whimper and wine, this is wonderful because you don’t have to physically go in the room if you know they are just fighting off sleep, having a dream or anything else that you wouldn’t normally get them out of the crib for.
It will also tell you the temperature in the room so you can keep a comfortable temperature for them. The night vision is also a pretty cool feature to have as well. It’s wonderful to just watch baby sleep on the monitor.
I use the Safe & Sound Full Color Video and Audio Monitor VM321 when I’m watching my nephew, but I would have loved to have something like this when my kids were babies. Technology sure has come a long way in the last 10 years and it is just amazing! I think it is well worth the investment because you are able to do and actually see so much more than on traditional audio only monitor. With a range of up to 1,000 feet, you can pretty much be anywhere in the house, depending on the size. You can also buy extra cameras so that you can have one in say the baby’s bedroom and one in the playroom for your toddler.
Another helpful use for this monitor is with pets. Our dogs are constantly doing stuff they’re not supposed to like trying to get something from the counter or getting into the garbage. Sometimes I’ll put the camera right in the kitchen and I’m able to see when they’re getting into stuff.
