"Excellent monitor, worth the money…"
We had a BT audio/temp/light monitor, but borrowed this one from a friend when we left our monitor at my parents. After using it, I just had to buy one! The video is very clear and the sound is good. I would not go back to having an audio-only monitor having tried a video one! It saves so much time running up and down stairs to check on baby at every noise!Read moreLess

"Simple and easy to use…"
This was recommended by a friend and we haven't regretted it. Very easy to use, clear signal, great picture, good battery life. Gives you peace of mind. Very helpful that you can readjust the camera angle from the handheld parent unit. Great buy.Read moreLess
"Fantastic piece of kit…"
Really good monitor. Nice large screen about the size of an iphone and has good battery life per charge.
It's touch screen and has almost all useful features that make it a very recommended product I rave about to my friends and family.
It's great that you can buy the additional camera and select the scan option so that it flips between the two. I have 2 under 2 and this is a godsend when they are in different rooms.Read moreLess

"An awesome monitor - after a battle for over a…"
An awesome monitor - after a battle for over a year with a well known audio/temp/light monitor, we decided to fork out for a audio/visual monitor, and opted for Summer Baby Touch as it also showed the temperature which we needed.
It was incredibly easy to set up - and the quality of the visual monitor was incredible. You expect 'night vision' not to be THAT great, but it really is crystal clear, and the ability to zoom in on the touch screen parent unit (or move the camera nearly 360 degrees up down left and right) is so useful as our toddler wriggles up the cot in the night.
A clever 'power-on' and 'power-off' button that you have to press and hold means that any meddling little paws won't be able to switch it on and off with ease without you knowing or catching them in the act.
A very sleek design for today's iphone saavy parents. The option to have the visual on or off is great at nights, as is the stand on the parent-unit for when it's not based on the charger.
My one criticism is I believe a well-known one, which is that the battery, when not docked on the charger, does seem to run down fast, but it's never died a death on us (yet!)
The bonus now for us is that we are expecting number 2, who will be 19 months apart from number 1. Summer Baby Touch allows you to buy an additional camera at a later date (up to four I believe) and hook them up to the one parent unit, so you can scan between rooms/children. This will be invaluable for us and is just the icing on the cake of an already great product.
Whilst more expensive than audio only monitors this really is worth it for that little bit more (especially if you end up throwing the audio-only one out anyway!!)Read moreLess
