Angelcare Sound & Video monitor
This was one of the best pruchases I have made when it comes to bubs. Our babys room is at the other end of our house so I just pop it on video mode and I can see exactly what is going on. It also has a walkie talkie function to which is great for settling bubs in the middle of the night. It comes with a night light which is very dim but just enough to comort bub. The sensor pads are brillant, sensitive but at least i know they work!! In those first couple of months it gave me such piece of mind and a better nights sleep.
This monitor is supposed to have a 200m range but we found it difficult getting a signal from one end of our modestly sized house to the other (30m at the most). The battery also has a very short life. All in all it was only useful for use in the next room, which is somewhat pointless as we could hear baby without a monitor being that close. Their customer service is also terrible - when I asked to return it, they did not explain that I would have to make do with an inferior loaner product (no video) while they assess and repair my unit - a process that would take up to 3 weeks.
I am now without a monitor despite paying nearly $300 for this one. Iwill never ever buy Angelcare again.
