Consumer Reports is the only place to find unbiased, independent baby monitor reviews. Need the extra set of ears—and sometimes eyes—that a baby monitor can provide? This relatively inexpensive device can alert you to your baby’s crying and calling while you are elsewhere in the home.
Should you get an audio-only baby monitor? Or do you need video too? Looking for special features, such as sound and lights, or extra receivers, or temperature sensors? Our experts at the Consumer Reports National Testing and Research Center have evaluated many different current baby monitor models at our on-site testing labs. We provide you with Ratings, where you will find the exact numerical score our experts have assigned to each of the four tested review criteria that make up our baby monitor reviews: interference, ease of use, battery life, and range. We have tested such major brands as Graco, The First Years, Philips Avent, Sony, Safety 1st, Fisher-Price, and others.
After reading the reviews, you can compare baby monitor models, review our list of the features and specifications, read user reviews, and submit your own reviews. If you prefer visual information, you can watch our video buying guide.
