With little ones in the house, I have learned that it all goes by too quickly, another thing I have learned is that if it is too quiet, well then they are probably up to no good. With that being said I am one who always has a watchful eye over my kids while they play and while they sleep. I not only want to ensure that they are safe, but since they grow so fast, I do not want to miss those moments, that come and go so quickly! Now I know that if I am constantly following them around through out the day, I will never get anything else done, so having cameras up in the kids rooms and playroom is ideal.
Recently I was sent the VTech Safe & Sound Baby Monitor to review. There are many great features on this monitor, but one that I really like and can appreciate, especially when the kids are playing, is the pan, tilt and zoom, which allow me to keep track of my little ones, even when they are running around playing. The camera can pan around the room, up to 270 degrees from side to side, then up to 124 degrees up and down! And say if my little Wyatt is playing in a corner and I need to get a closer look to see what he might be up to, I can use the zoom feature, and zoom in up to 2x!
Then with the talk back intercom, I can interact with my kids as they play, or if they have a interrupted nap and need to hear my voice to soothe them back to sleep, this system can allow me to look, listen, and even check in on my kids as they sleep and play!
Other features include the temperature indicator, which is great so I know if I need to adjust the temperature. I also can appreciate the full motion video, which gives 25 frames per second, allowing me to watch as my kids move around. I can add more cameras to my system, so I can have one in the kids rooms as well as the playroom, having up to 4 cameras with my 1 video monitor!
The large screen is also a plus, and makes a difference when you compare it to other baby monitoring systems, making it so you can see more. Then with the vibrating sound alert that comes over the parental unit of this system, I can be notified, quietly, when there is noise in the room when the kids are sleeping! Making the VTech Safe & Sound Baby Monitor, not only a great system to have in my home so that I can keep an eye on my little ones while they sleep and play, but also a great system to get any expecting parent!
