With the BT Smart Baby Monitor you can ask your Amazon Echo or Google Home device to tell you the temperature in your baby’s nursery, switch on the motion detection or play your little one a soothing lullaby.
Up to four people can access the video feed using the BT Smart Controls app on a smartphone or tablet, so you can check in on your baby from the office or wherever you are.
We’ve recently tested this wi-fi baby monitor, along with nine other audio and video baby monitors.
Head to our round-up of the Best Buy baby monitors to find impressive models for as little as £25.
The BT Smart Baby Monitor – is it any good?
Smart wi-fi baby monitors are generally expensive – the Motorola Halo Smart Crib Projector, for example, costs £280. But the BT Smart Baby Monitor is pretty reasonable in price, ranging from £130-£150, depending on the whether you opt for the 2.8-inch or 5-inch parent unit screen.

Three other baby monitors to look out for
BleepBleeps Suzy Snooze – £100
Like the BT Smart Baby Monitor, the unique Suzy Snooze from BleepBleeps is a wi-fi-connected gadget that comes with an app.
Through the app you can listen in on your baby, play a lullaby or turn on the adjustable orange LED light that’s claimed to ‘promote natural sleep hormones’.
It’s good for sleep-training toddlers and preschoolers as you can set a wake-up time to help teach your child stay in bed for longer.
But compared with other monitors, this device seemed to be lacking a few key features. Find out what they are and read our assessment of its sound quality and privacy in our BleepBleeps Suzy Snooze review.
BabyMoov Yoo-Moov – £180
Even the wriggliest baby won’t be able to escape the camera on the BabyMoov Yoo-Moov video monitor.
It can pan a full 360 degrees and tilt from front to back, as well as from right to left, so there’s no corner of the nursery you shouldn’t be able to see.
It also has a multi-coloured night light, lullabies and a temperature indicator.
But it’s around £40 more expensive than the average price of the video baby monitors on test.
Is it worth the investment? Read our BabyMoov Yoo-Moov review to help you make up your mind.
Beaba Minicall – £40
Technophobe parents looking for something simple might want to consider the Beaba Minicall.
It’s an inexpensive audio baby monitor that’s tough and durable as it’s covered in soft-touch silicone, and the parent unit is also water and humidity resistant.
If you travel a lot, or visit friends and family, then it’s compact enough to easily take with you.
But how accurate are the sound-sensitive lights and how clear is the audio? Take a look at our Beaba Minicall review to see how it fared in our tough tests.
