A full color video and audio baby monitor with a pan and tilt camera.


Best Features

  • The 4.3 inch color LCD screen has high resolution and excellent picture quality, with 25 frames per second.
  • The camera can pan left to right and tilt up and down with controls on the monitor.
  • Infrared night vision lets you see what’s going on perfectly even when the room is dark.
  • It has a very large operating range – 1000 feet.
  • It includes a 2-way intercom button so you can press to talk back to your baby from outside the room.
  • The volume can be adjusted 5 levels, and completely muted.
  • The monitor vibrates when there is sound going off, as well as a visual signal of the volume.
  • The unit is expandable up to 8 total cameras, so you can keep an eye on multiple rooms and switch between cameras on the monitor.
  • The monitor displays an accurate temperature reading for the room.

Potential Issues

  • The monitor charges with a mini USB cable that plugs directly into the device, not a docking station.
  • The mounting bracket for the camera works, but it is not stable enough if it might get knocked or bumped once set.
  • The sound quality isn’t great, but it’s enough to let you know your baby is crying.

Conclusion

The VTech VM343 Safe and Sound Baby Monitor is a great quality video monitor, with a lot of nice features.

It is a high end monitor, but worth it if you want good picture quality, large range, and especially the ability to expand to multiple cameras accessible from one monitoring device.
