When our son was born, we bought an older model of the AVENT DECT monitor at a friend's recommendation, and it was the best investment we made! We still use it daily for our son, who's almost two and a half, and it has held up impeccably. When our daughter was born, we needed to get a second monitor for her, since our son still takes naps and we have a two story house. I was really disappointed that our old model was discontinued.

This model is slightly more expensive than the one we got before. It has some extra features -- namely, the temperature sensor, which I like more than I thought I would. We have never cared much for lullaby and light features -- they seem kind of pointless to me. I still prefer the old model of this. It had a belt clip, and a smaller "parent" unit, and was a little simpler to operate since it didn't have a digital interface. This one "topples" easily off of the nightstand when I fumble for it at night.

Another small issue -- even though I can turn the sensitivity down on the monitor, the blue lights still come on (even if the audio link doesn't activate). We keep a noise maker in baby's room, and if the monitor is too close to the noise maker, blue lights flash all night on the monitor, no matter what the sensitivity is set to. Thats pretty annoying, since flashing blue lights will wake me up at night. We ended up turning the noise maker down and moving it to the other end of the room to resolve this.

My mother in law got one of these and it had the battery issue a lot of reviewers mention -- not charging or holding a charge. She didn't have any issues getting it replaced, and the second one works great.

That said, I still don't think you can find a better monitor. Especially if you have a large house, or heavy walls, the technology in this is fantastic. The only time we have any interference is if we have both parent units (for our son's older Avent monitor and our baby's new one) too close together -- within a few feet of each other. These aren't static-y. The "talk" feature works wonderfully, especially now with a toddler. We have a very long driveway, and I can walk all the way to the mailbox without losing the connection. While I miss the older model, which seemed a little more robust, I'll recommend the Avent line of monitors to anyone.

I received this monitor for free in exchange for writing an honest review. I have grown accustomed to using only video monitors for my children, so I was unsure how I would feel about an audio only monitor. Overall, this monitor was pretty average. I don't think it went above and beyond any other audio only monitors. It does have some nice features, however. The "talk" feature is nice for use with older children. I was able to tell my son that it was okay for him to get up and get a drink, without having to shout from the other side of the house. The temperature alert was not something I found very useful, since we live in a new house in which the temperature is very well regulated. The range of the monitor seems to be on par with other monitors I have used. Within the house, it seems to work fine, but once it is brought outside, it can't go very far before it loses its signal. There are two big drawback I noticed with this monitor. The first is with the lullabye sound. While they may be soothing to some, it has been found that simple white noise is very effective in getting babies to fall asleep and to sleep more soundly. Instead of a variety of lullabye sounds, white noise would have been a better choice. The next negative is the loud beeping noise that occurs when the parent unit is powered off. There is no way to control the volume of this. If one parent gets up to care for the baby in the middle of the night, they will probably turn off the parent unit in order to not disturb the other parent. This loud beep totally defeats that purpose, since it will likely disturb the other parent enough to wake them. All in all, I was not overally impressed with this product. If you are looking for a simple audio only monitor, there are better ones out there.

    I started using this monitor and the battery won't stay charged. I was given a replacement and it is happening again... I really like the monitor but I can't use very often because of the battery issue.

    We have a camera in our room where our baby sleeps but needed something that would alert us to sound more easily. This sound monitor is perfect. The sound is clear and gives us piece of mind. It also tells you the temperature of the room and can be used as a night light. We love it and would definitely recommend.


    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.

        Have 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 has been a lifesaver for us and our son thank you. Sorry it took so long to write this Melissa jimmys mom

          Amazing baby monitor! The sound is super clear and precise. Btw, it sounds like the baby is sleeping next to me and my husband. This product gave us peace of mind.

          Comments about Philips AVENT DECT Audio Baby Monitor - SCD560/10:

          Between our kids, we've experimented with audio, digital video, and wi-fi monitors. While we love the fancy features of a wi-fi monitor, we found that for visiting out of town family or staying in a hotel suite audio monitoring was our go-to route. We received this monitor to review and were quite impressed at how the quality has improved from the static versions we were used to growing up. SOUND QUALITY - I hear my baby clearly without static or interruption. To be able to hear that my baby is breathing safely and that she is content means the world to me. VISUAL DISPLAY - The sound sensitivity lights are helpful to visually see the volume of sound coming from my daughter's room. I appreciate being able to adjust the sensitivity if there are other items (i.e. humidifier or lawn mower) that could be picked up. THERMOMETER GAUGE - I love this feature. Whether it is the heat of summer or the cool of winter, I love knowing the temperature in my daughter's room to ensure she is comfortable and in a safe temperature range. Her older brother wanted to be a helper and cranked the heat - while I interceded right away, I appreciate knowing the alert feature was an extra safety check for temperature comfort. TWO-WAY TALK - If she has already been settled for the evening but is stirring, the two-way talk feature is neat in allowing me to sing her bedtime song to her again without the disturbance of me opening the door (and that visual excitement of seeing mom!). We used this feature when my son had transitioned to a toddler bed - we'd say, "please go back to bed, sweetie" when we heard he was up, and he would listen. Most of the time. ;) While we prefer checking personally, this communication feature has provided an extra avenue of communicating with our kids - and for that, we are thankful. NIGHTLIGHT - Changing a diaper at night is easily facilitate with a light touch of the monitor / light. The nightlight is soft and non-glaring - just the right amount to provide care but not too bright to fully awaken our daughter. RANGE - The range indicates up to 330 meters. While we were staying in a cabin we utilized this feature so that our daughter could nap while we played right outside the cabin with our son. He was a happy camper and so were we. Overall, the sound quality and bonus features make this audio monitor reliable, portable, and a great value to not break the bank.

          Comments about Philips AVENT DECT Audio Baby Monitor - SCD560/10:

          I received a free sample of this baby monitor for my son, and was very pleased. One of the features I really liked was the base stays in the babies room and the smaller piece stays with me, well if I misplace my piece I can press find on the base and find it. I also loved that the base was a was very nice to have during the night. I also had never had a monitor that I could use as a 2 way speaker, if my son was crying I could talk to him over the monitor on my way to his room. I was very pleased and would highly recommend this monitor to others.


          My favorite Monitor!!

          Comments about Philips AVENT DECT Audio Baby Monitor - SCD560/10:

          Who knew a baby monitor could do so much! I received this monitor as a free sample to use for this review and was very impressed with it. First, the range of this monitor is amazing. I could literally go across the street and still hear perfectly through the monitor. This is great for times you are outside doing yard work, etc. Second, there is a room temperature sensor that keeps you alerted to how warm/cold it is in their room at night. Third, there is a soft nightlight that can glow as well as lullabies that can play. The monitor device also has a two way walkie talkie like feature so you can talk to your child without going into the room. One other thing I noticed about this monitor when comparing it to others that I have used in the place is that it is extremely quiet. Others seem to have a static/white noise that is loud but there is none of that with this one. Overall, I would highly recommend this monitor. I have used several before with other children but this is by far the best I have used. You can`t go wrong!

              I happily received this product in exchange for posting an honest review of this baby monitor. I have enjoyed using it and would recommend it to others. There are many `extra` features that I wasn`t sure I`d use upon initial use, but I have been pleasantly surprised that I`ve used them and will continue. I have liked the temperature alert--especially during a cold winter in a finicky apartment. It gives me peace of mind that I`ve dressed my child appropriately for the night, or gives me reason to go put on another blanket. My child has even liked the music features that play for 15 minutes after I leave the room. We have had no issues with the distance of the parental control reach--but we live in a small apartment, so I can`t speak too well for that. The monitor has been sensitive enough to pick up noises I WANT to hear, but hasn`t been so sensitive that I can`t sleep myself. The battery life for the parental unit has been good with no sign of decline yet. I regularly use the built in night light and have been able to remove out other too bright night light thanks to this feature. Overall I highly recommend this product to new or expecting parents.
