I saw reviews on Safety 1st on a few different social media sites and everyone gave it a good review for the price paid. It made me have to check in on my child less often without being worried. It is also very portable. I like that it had features on the baby monitor that you could clip on to your clothes to tote the monitor around with you. It has a headphone jack as well for listening in privacy. The volume is clear and is very easy to hear noises and cries. However, I would like to be able to use Bluetooth headphones with the monitor, it will be so much more easier to listen hands free and not get tangled in wires and cords. Also, when one monitor has low batteries it should alert another one.
It was not too expensive, had different ones at different prices, it had a video monitor and the sound was pretty clear, easy to use, very innovative. It was pretty reliable and it did its job. It was also readily available in the small town I live in.

I used Safety 1st and VEC. Both of these brands I have not had any issues with previously and were recommended by friends who were happy with them as well. Hearing the baby is the most important and I like Safety 1st's feature of hearing my baby clearly. I also would not have a lot of static or much background noise.
I like the fact that it is portable so you can take it with you wherever you go instead of just keeping it in one room. The fact that it has video and sounds capabilities is also amazing, because I like being able to see and hear my daughter since it gives me peace of mind. But I would like it if it came with two cameras instead of just one, since you want several more viewpoints in the room to see your child from during the night. I have a few other products which are made by Safety 1st, and they have never let me down. They're incredibly reliable and high quality. It's been a good experience.
My favorite part about the baby monitor was the fact it had video so you can see and hear your baby. The video and sound were always clear. I always felt comfortable and never worried. I had no problems, with this monitor at all. But the thing I disliked the most was the price of the monitor... I feel like companies hike up the prices on things that they know the parents need the most. Overall when/if I have another baby I would definitely purchase this monitor again.
It is really easy to set up, it only took us a few minutes. And it was simple to attach the camera to the wall facing our son. It was really easy to use. The video and audio is amazing on it and it is clear to hear and see them whenever we need to. It was really clear to see our kiddo at night. It was great to see him while he slept at night or in the daytime for a nap. However, the screen is really small, which isn't a bad thing because you can still see, but it would be great if it was bigger to easily see them better. Nevertheless, it is a cheap price, you are not paying a arm & leg for it.
I like that it's very dependable and easy to use all the time. It has a very good range and has upstairs and downstairs reception. It has very little noise and it was very reasonable priced. But I would like this product to have longer distance/range, louder volume control and less buttons on the units. It could also have more types available for different situations. Having an outside unit would be great for family members.
They can always been seen and know that the safety of my baby comes first. I like that I can see my baby on a screen at home while sleeping in crib and even when I’m at work while sitter is watching them. Everything with this brand and device runs great and not a complaint to be had. This brand allows my baby and me to have time without having to be in the same room.
The baby monitor has the link option to my phone. The remote option connected to the cell was a nice feature. The night vision was a nice option. Loved watching the kids looking right into it. Amazing how they figure out that's where to look when they want momie or dad. Loved the color, design and handling. Also loved that the camera connected to my cell phone and res was good too. The mounting bracket allowed us to mount the camera in the middle of the wall, high enough to look in the crib but far enough the baby couldn't reach.
The thermometer that came with it was the perfect size. Large display and could link to a computer or phone. But the battery life sucked. And the camera was bulky for the size of the camera. The packaging was a pain to get open, and the microphone kept going in and out. The size of the body was too big and almost made it impossible to mount to the wall because of the spacing.
The Safety 1st baby monitor has many features I enjoy but the one I like most is the great quality speaker and microphone that allows you to hear the smallest of sounds. Even though it is cheaper it is still a very great quality product and very affordable for people of all financial classes and situations. The only feature I am displeased with is the support clip on the back of the monitor. I feel as though it could be a lot stronger and more able to support its own weight.
