VTech has combined its expertise in wireless home communication with its knowledge of innovative children's electronics products to deliver a highly functional and affordable line of baby monitors. The new baby monitor line features digital communication technology, which improves range, sound quality and reduces interference from other home devices, so that parents can easily hear sounds and see the images from the baby monitor.
For parents wanting to be completely in tune with their little ones, the VTech Safe & Sound Full-Color Video and Audio Monitor (VM321, MSRP: US$149.95) provides a full audio/visual monitoring solution that gives parents peace-of-mind with up to 1,000 feet of range between the camera and parent unit. The system features high-quality video resolution (transmitting up to 22 frames per second) on a sizeable 2.8-inch video screen with a 320 x 240 pixel display (compared to a 2-inch display for the competition's slightly more expensive models).
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: US$49.95), along with infrared night-vision capability for viewing when the room is completely dark. The Safe & Sound Full-Color Video and Audio Monitor also features a two-way intercom system to let the little one hear parents' voices, polyphonic lullabies to play, a temperature sensor to ensure parents can keep rooms heated or cooled appropriately and vibrating alerts to noise in the baby's room for notification when the parent unit is attached with the belt clip or in a pocket. Finally, the system offers a six-level LED sound indicator to adjust volume and a rechargeable battery on the parent unit, avoiding the need to continuously stock and replace batteries.
For parents needing a more affordable solution, the VTech Safe and Sound Digital Audio Monitor (DM221, MSRP: US$39.95) offers up to 1,000 feet of range and features Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) 6.0 technology, ensuring high-quality and reliable sound that prevents wireless interference from other electronic devices and security from digital snooping. Parents won't miss a gurgle or hiccup with vibrating sound alerts, sound indicators, backlit display on the parent unit and a belt clip for constant monitoring. In addition, the intercom system allows immediate two-way communication to sooth the baby when restless. VTech offers up to 18 hours of battery life and rechargeable batteries, ensuring continuous monitoring all night, even if the family is on the go.
"Parents want peace of mind when their babies aren't in their arms, and VTech is giving them a solid alternative with monitoring products that deliver the best value for their dollar," said Matt Ramage, senior vice president, product management, VTech Communications. "Our leadership in wireless communication for the home enables us to be competitive in both quality and price, providing parents with a reliable, feature-rich solution to keep tabs on their little ones, as they go about their days and nights."
