Motorola baby monitors

Motorola has been one of the first brands to embrace the ‘smart’ trend in baby tech – with a growing range of wi-fi connected baby monitors. But choosing to go high-tech will mean you'll need a bigger budget than for a standard audio monitor – you can pay up to £170 for one of Motorola’s smart baby monitors, whereas a standard audio monitor will cost you £20.

Best Buy baby monitors

When you're choosing a baby monitor there are several important factors to bear in mind. How long does the battery last? How far will the signal reach? If you're buying a video baby monitor, is the picture going to be clear enough so you can tell your baby apart from his teddy bear on the screen? 

When we review baby monitors we test for all this and more. Browse our Best Buy baby monitors for those you can rely on to help you keep an eye on your little one with minimal stress.
