What parent testers had to say:
Overall, I loved this product. It allowed me to keep a distance from my baby and hear everything that is going on in his room. If he somehow woke up while I wasn't in the room I had the option to talk to him through the unit and soothe him back to sleep. The other amazing features includes telling me the room temperature on the parent unit, and a feeding timer.
This product is amazing! I have nothing bad to say about it. The 2 way function is perfect so I can talk to my little guy from my room to his. I sleep well knowing that this product is so reliable. The nightlight is perfect. The rechargeable parent unit has a long operating time so I don't have to worry about it turning off in the middle of the night. I can't say enough how much I love this product!
I was pretty surprised by this unit. It was easy to setup, easy to charge with the charging station, and the voice quality was very well as well. The talk back feature will come in handy when our baby gets older. I did not find the night light useful. I am not sure if that will change when our baby gets older..
I found the Phillips Avent DECT audio baby monitor to be a great sound-only monitor. The sound was clear throughout the house and over various levels. I did not run into any static while using it. The enhanced functions (temperature, night light, and music option) were a great addition to a simple monitor and these are functions that I would personally be looking for if I wanted a sound-only monitor.
