This post is brought to you by VTech and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. I’m a sucker for good technology that makes like as a parent easier and the VTech Safe&Sound® Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Baby Monitor is one of those things. I like it even more when it’s loaded with features but still cheaper than it’s competitors. It’s going on my new baby must have list. Check out the video I did to see the VTech Safe&Sound® Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Baby Monitor in action. Having a video monitor is great when your baby is little but once they hit the toddler years it’s essential. Once they are in a toddler or big kid bed they have free reign of the room and if you don’t have a camera that can see the whole room you might be peeking in on them more than you would like. I like to show people this funny video of my little one jumping around in her room and hiding while singing. Now I can tell her to get back in bed with the talk-back intercom feature. The fact that I can pan, tilt and zoom in on her running a muck in her room is a bonus. The camera pans 270 degrees side to side and tilts 124 degrees up and down. If you have multiple children in the same room this is a required feature for checking on both of them on the same monitor. Of course it has the standard features that you’d expect from a video monitor like night vision and great audio playback, but it’s the added features that make this a winner for me.You can set the unit to alert you if the room hits a minimum or a maximum temperature as well as sound alerts, low battery and disconnection alerts. The unit can be set to vibrate as well. It also has a 1,000 foot range to reach all over your house and even yard. I never really thought that I needed to have a temperature gauge on my child’s baby monitor before but I had an incident the other day that really opened my eyes up to being a believer. My youngest daughters room isn’t insulated properly so it can get really cold or hot in her room if you aren’t monitoring it. She was taking a nap the other day and I got an alert on the parent unit that the temperature had gotten extreme in her room. I ran up there and got her out so that she would be comfortable. It was a safety feature that I never really thought I would need until that very moment when I needed it. The VTech Safe&Sound® Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Baby Monitor retails for $179.95 which I think is a great price if you look at other monitors with all of the same features which I’ve seen going for over $200. I love it so much I’m getting another camera for my oldest daughter’s room so I can watch them playing up there together and remind her that she is supposed to be cleaning!
