There's a wide range of Philips Avent audio baby monitors, including models with lullabies, night lights, multiple indicators, feeding timers and compact parent units. This means there are models suited to any budget.
The parent units of Philips Avent baby monitors operate on rechargeable batteries that last up to 18 hours on a single charge. Some models come with docking stations for the parent units for quick and easy charging. While the child units run on electrical power, select models also have a battery backup option, requiring you to insert four AA alkaline batteries, so your monitor will keep working even during a power outage. Philips Avent models are digital, using DECT 6.0 technology for secure, private transmissions, and therefore only require a single channel. These devices have a maximum range of 150 feet indoors, which is adequate for most families.
Philips Avent audio baby monitors feature light-up sound indicators for those times when you need to operate the unit on mute. There are also out-of-range and low-battery indicators, so you know when it's time to get back in range or drop your parent unit in its charging dock. The vibration feature on select models lets you choose vibrating alerts for a variety of different factors, including noise from your baby, feeding time and the room temperature. Most models have a pager function too, so you never lose a parent unit for too long.
Although these baby monitors are not wall-mountable, the microphones are sensitive enough that you can place them out of reach of your baby and still hear every noise they make. You can even adjust the microphone sensitivity on some models, so you can filter out quiet sounds and gurgles and only hear louder fussing and crying. Most of these audio monitors also have temperature indicators, helping you make sure your baby stays cozy.
The parent units are compact handheld devices. They are small enough to fit into your pocket, but they don't have belt clips or carry loops. Select Philips Avent audio baby monitors feature night lights and lullabies that help soothe and comfort your infant. You can find sets with one or two parent receivers, as well as units with intercom functionality to let you talk or sing to your baby from another room. Some of these baby monitors feature an alarm or feeding timer, letting you set it between one minute and 24 hours.
Philips Avent baby monitors offer an extensive range of features. They provide secure digital transmissions to give you peace of mind. Long-lasting batteries and docking stations for the parent units and battery backups for the child units ensure you never run out of power unexpectedly. Although the parent units don't feature belt clips and the child units aren't wall-mountable, you get an extensive selection of other useful features.
