- Build Quality
This is the best kind of non-video monitor that you can get. Consistently connects, no issues with the unit deciding not to work, sound quality is great and your toddler will love the fact that you can chat back and forth with the walker talkie feature. If you are looking for a monitor to hear what your little one is up to and you are not too bothered about having video, this is a strong contender and we highly recommend it.

VTech DM221-2 Audio Baby Monitor
The VTech DM221-2 Audio Baby Monitor uses DECT 6.0 Digital technology to ensure crystal-clear transmission without interference so the only sounds you hear are your baby’s. In addition, DECT technology transmits a secure, encrypted signal so you can rest assured you’re the only one who can hear your baby. I like that the VTech DM221-2 Safe & Sound Digital Audio Baby Monitor comes with two parent units, so you can have one recharging or being used by your partner, while you have the other clipped to your belt.
I also like that the parent unit does use rechargeable batteries, rather than normal batteries because these units can really eat into the batteries. I also find that the battery life is really great, so you don’t have to keep recharging all the time and the audio is crystal clear with no interference from WiFi devices in the home. The little nightlight in the carry handle of the baby monitor is also cute, giving you enough light to see your baby sleeping easily, but not enough to be glaring.
Sometimes all your baby needs to calm down is the soothing sound of your voice. The talk-back feature in the VTech DM221-2 Audio Baby Monitor allows you to communicate with your little one from anywhere in your home through the parent unit. In addition, the loop on the baby unit lights up, acting as a calming night-light for your infant. Don’t forget that with an audio baby monitor you can’t see your baby, just hear him or her.
1000 Feet of Range
With a range of up to 1,000 feet, the Safe&Sound Digital Audio Monitor lets you hear your little one from anywhere in the house, or even outside. The lightweight, battery-operated parent unit operates for up to 18 hours on a single charge and includes a built-in belt clip so you can move freely in and around your home. Its backlit display is easy to read, even in the dark.
5 Level Volume Indicator
A set of five LED lights on the parent unit indicates the level of sound in your baby’s room so you can visually monitor the noise level with the receiver muted. In vibration mode, the parent unit alerts you with gentle vibrations when your baby is fussing.
