Top five most popular baby monitor reviews

Motorola MBP36SThe Motorola MBP36S Digital Video Baby Monitor has a pan and tilt camera

1) Motorola MBP36S baby monitor

The most viewed baby monitor review is the Motorola MBP36S. It’s a digital video monitor that replaces the popular Motorola MBP36, which was one of the first monitors to enable parents to remotely control the baby unit video camera – handy if you have a wriggly child to keep track of.

The MBP36S baby monitor still lets you do this, but Motorola claims it also has ‘crystal-clear’ two-way sound, improved background noise suppression, reduced wi-fi interference and increased battery life – but with a price-tag of £160, it’s not a cheap monitor.

Find out if the Motorola MBP36S is a Best Buy.

2) BT 300 digital baby monitor

BT has updated its popular audio baby monitor, the BT 200 with the BT 300. The newer version has many of the features of its predecessor such as a night light and two-way talk-back, but it’s cheaper, has a much smaller baby unit and an adjustable night light.

This baby monitor may not have a video screen, but at just £40 we can see why it’s one of the most viewed reviews on our site.

Our expert lab tests reveal if this baby monitor makes the grade as a Best Buy and you can head straight to the BT Digital baby monitor 300 review to see how it scores.

3) Angelcare AC1120 digital video & sound

The Angelcare AC1120 digital video baby monitor has a distinctive angel-shaped baby unit to watch over your baby and has infrared night vision, so you can keep an eye on your baby day or night.

It has some sophisticated features such as a touchscreen parent unit, and comes with more basic ones such as a temperature display – but at £170 it’s got a high-end price tag to match.

Did our tests find this digital baby monitor to be a celestial delight? Read our Angelcare AC1120 Digital Video & Sound review.

motorola mbp27t-300x200Motorola’s MBP27T features a no-touch temperature sensor

4) Motorola MBP27T baby monitor

The Motorola MBP27T digital video baby monitor has infrared night vision, a camera that you can move and tilt, and a 2.4-inch TFT LCD screen.

It also features a no-touch temperature sensor for taking your baby’s temperature or seeing how hot bath water or a bottle of milk is; you just point the monitor’s sensor and press a button. But, it doesn’t have the option to tell you the nursery temperature.

Is a no-touch temperature sensor a useful addition to a video baby monitor? Our expert tests reveal whether this baby monitor gives a clear picture of your baby.

iBaby-M2-300x200The iBaby M2 turns your smart device into a monitor

5) iBaby M2 baby monitor

The iBaby M2 turns your iOS device (iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad) into a baby monitor that you can use to check up on your baby wherever you have a 3G/4G signal or wi-fi network. This is a great innovation that will definitely appeal to some parents who don’t want a traditional baby monitor.

We gave the M2 to our parent volunteers to check on how reliable this monitor was and how easy it was to set up and use. We also asked them to check the sound, image quality and how reliable the signal strength was.

Find out what the parents of a one-year-old thought of this monitor in our First Look review of the: iBaby M2.
