Audio Baby Monitor 450 Lightshow
Our tough tests compare and identify the best baby monitors for picture and sound quality, battery life and practical features. But that's not all.
We also ask parents how happy they are with their brand, so we can get a complete picture of how well a baby monitor works when new and how it fares over time.
Some baby-monitor batteries degrade more quickly than others, or a fault can develop with signal range.
