Some baby monitor features are simply nice to have, while others can make a big difference to how well your baby monitor works for you.
More than two thirds of parents told us they couldn't do without a good signal range.
Choosing a baby monitor with good range will allow you to move around the house without experiencing a drop in image or sound quality. The best monitors will maintain good signal quality even when you are out in the garden while your baby is indoors.
