Great audio only monitorWhen we received this monitor (free in exchange for a review), we already owned an analog audio monitor as well as a video monitor that uses wifi.
Therefore, this was our first time testing a digital audio monitor, and our first comment is that we were very impressed with the DECT technology. The connection is encrypted, there is truly no interference, the sound is very clear, and it doesn't interfere with our wifi like our analog monitor does.
The monitor has several other really nice features. The sounds are fine, but you can turn the sound down and just have lights that show the volume in the room, and the whole receiver will vibrate if there is a sudden loud cry ("cry alert"), which is a nice option when you want the volume turned down (during a movie or something). One feature that we initially thought was overkill was the temperature reading, but we find ourselves using it surprisingly often. Our nursery is in the corner of the house with several walls to the outdoors, and we've discovered that the temperature fluctuates quite a bit changes in weather.
The one word of caution that we'd mention is that if the power goes out then turns back on, the transmitter does not automatically power back on (as it would if the on/off switch was physical). The receiver does give you an alert if it loses its contact with the transmitter, but if you had the unit silenced I'm not sure if it would override the mute or not.

LOVE this monitor.I love this monitor. I can go 100 yards to my barn or chicken coop and it still works. We LOVE being able to talk to our kids through it too, especially if I can't get there immediately. My son loves the little songs and the night light is helpful. Our only problem is that I don't have money for a new one and our dog dropped the parent device into a bucket of water and it did not survive. I wish I could just purchase an extra monitor.

A lifesaverHave had this monitor for over two years. I have had at least 10 monitors in last 25 years none work with the clarity of this I have a 25 year old totally disabled son on oxygen and a noise machine going also a pump feeding. I hear if a Machine goes off during night or my son gagging because he needs succtioning I could not sleep at night without this. Wish I had this when he was a infant. I would of been a lot less worried about hearing him. There is no interference at all. I wish I could by another parent unit to keepin living room to hear him when he goes to bed and I'm still up. Have to bring the one out from bedroom. Do invest in this ..it has been a lifesaver for us and our son thank you. Sorry it took so long to write this Melissa jimmys mom

Finally allowed some sleepI received this monitor as a sample in exchange for an honest review. When I read the monitor features I thought we may end up using it as a walkie talkie for my 3 year old instead of a monitor for my 13 month old. Boy was a wrong. This monitor is excellent! We had been having trouble getting my 1 year old to settle at night each time he woke and therefore my husband and I were taking turns all night long comforting him. I set up the monitor right away, tested the walkie talkie feature with my 3 year old and gave it a shot! The ability to talk into the parent monitor and it sound in the baby`s room is amazing! At the first cry I calmly talked to baby from my bed and he calmed immediately! And the next time he woke and cried he calmed just with the sound of my voice again! It`s amazing. I also see how the other features could be good if my baby was younger like the feeding timer. Also, I like that I can see what the temperature is in my baby`s room. That is another great feature

SO many great featuresI received this Philips Avent SCD570/10 ECO DECT Monitor to use and review. I love the slim and sleek look and feel of the main unit and the handheld unit. It was very easy to set up and get working right out of the box. As soon as I turned on the handheld unit, it already linked with the main unit and I was ready to go. I didn't read the instructions to set up, as everything was so easy and self explanatory. I really love the fact that it monitor the room temperature and there is a talk back feature. Being able to set alerts for the baby's cry and feeding schedule are so nice and great for a mom with a newborn. The sensitivity range for crying is a great feature as well. The range on the handle is great. I was able to hear clearly in all three floors of my house and across street to neighbors house. There are so many great features and functions on this Monitor that make life easy as a mom.

Multi use monitorI was excited to receive this monitor in exchange for a review due to the numerous monitors I have owned in the past 10 years that have not been to my satisfaction. This monitor is truly outstanding. I love the temperature display (my child`s room is often on the cold side so it lets me know if I should put a portable heater in the room). I also like that it plays lullabys to put her to sleep. I truly enjoyed having the night light and I really liked the yellow tone. I felt like it made her fall asleep and stay asleep even after I left the room. The distance range was really perfect for us as we live in a 3 story house. I found that I couldn`t use most monitors because it wouldn`t pick up the signal when I was in the basement and my daughter was on the second floor. I am really happy I got to try out this monitor because it really covered all of my needs.

Perfect sound monitor to give you peace of mind while still having lots of options and settingsI received the Philips Avent DECT audio baby monitor to use in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and I fully tested out the monitor before opting my thoughts.
When having a baby monitor in our nursery it's important that it have enough options available to allow the most sensitive sounds when needed and also a more muted mode for the times that is warranted. I like to hear every noise from my son's room when he's been sick or during naptime when I might be distracted. In the middle of the night I like to tone down the lights on our parent unit and make the sound come through only when it's more than the random noise from rolling over. This monitor allowed me to change setting to accomplish all of that. It has a cry alert which will increase in sound on the parent monitor to alert even the heaviest sleeper. The baby unit has a nightlight feature and can even play lullabies on a timer. I love combining the sound machine and monitor into one gadget so I don't forget to turn something on! This monitor is easy to pickup and get running even if you're not a fan of manuals. I immediately turned it on and had it working and only needed to read through the manual to be certain I wasn't missing a perk of the gadget. It comes with rechargeable batteries to put into the parent unit (they will need to charge for 10hours before being full) and an electrical base for that unit. The baby unit has a battery compartment and plugs in. Although no extra batteries come for the nursery unit putting your own in makes it possible to easily take the whole thing when you travel and might not have an electrical outlet around. Both units are of a modern design and blend nicely into any nursery décor. I like the built in thermometer reading which lets me know how comfy baby should be. It's also possible to turn the parent mode on to vibration instead of sounds. Overall, I would definitely recommend this monitor to anyone looking for a sound monitor for their house.

No second parent unitExcellent product, but returned to the store since there is no second parent unit.
Ended up buying competitor product which I like less, but has second monitor.
