On offer at Argos right now is a Motorola MBP30 Multi Cam Digital Baby Monitor, with an RRP of £129.99, now selling at £99.99, with a saving of £30.
We had a video baby monitor once, but it was one of the first incantations of it’s type and didn’t work in a house that had wifi or if you had any neighbours with wifi. The interference was so bad, you’d wake the baby in the adjoining room. Video baby monitors have come a way since then, and while I’ve not bothered with a video monitor since, this does seem like quite a nice one, with pretty good reviews too.
It is digital and has 64 channels, so hopefully you won’t be picking up your neighbours baby. It has a range of up to 150m and an out of range indicator on the portable parent unit.
There’s volume control and a 2 way talk back if you want to reassure baby that you’re on your way – especially if you made it 150m out the house baby free!
Additionally, it has a night light so you can make your way around the room without stumbling over toddler toys. The video screen is 2.4 inches and colour and there’s a low battery indicator – the baby unit requires 3AAA batteries, the first round of which is included and there are mains included too.
