new baby arriving any day and an 18 mth old that we still use a BT monitor with. Does anyone know if we can use another BT monitor for new baby or will channels clash? Do we need to buy a different make?

My dm looks after my dd and rarely my dn at the same time. Both have BT150's and she uses both to monitor the children. Although neither really need it tbh.

We use one monitor but two cameras. You can change channels on the video part you see or have both on screen

Is a summer one. Not sure which model though

Yes 2 or more cams will work it just auto-splitscreens

Does your existing monitor use digital enhanced cordless technology (DECT)?

If so then it will not clash with another monitor that also features digital enhanced cordless technology (DECT). Our two don't have the ability to change channels as they don't clash regardless.

I think all modern monitors have this feature now but its worth checking.

I have 2 bt 250s and they don't clash. The only problem is figuring out which monitor is for which baby! We wouldn't hear either dc in other parts of the house if we didn't have two, 2 feet thick stone walls and we have to keep doors closed to keep bedrooms warm. The bt ones also have excellent range and don't lose signal (wish the same could be said for our wifi)

hi I work with a person with learning difficulties who gets out of bed and dismantles his toilet cistern in his on suite bathroom can any one recommend a baby monitor that picks up noise approx 5mtres away have tried the motorola one and that only does near where the monitor is placed not the surrounding areas nearby i need to be able to hear the noises in the background I can not use a video one as the person needs personal privacy thanks
