I'm currently looking to spend around £100 on a baby monitor, can anyone recommend this one? Or an alternative for the price? Thank you

I've also been looking to get one of these recently (a monitor in general, not this specific one).

The BT Video Monitor 1000 seems to generally get very good reviews and is currently £74.99 on Amazon, but I think it might be an older model that's being replace with a completely new range from BT which includes the 2000, 3000, 5000 and 6000 - the 3000 seeming to be the equivalent of the older 1000. I haven't been able to find any decent reviews on the newer models anywhere though and am wondering if I might be better off buying the older, but more proven 1000 model than the newer 3000 model.

I was going to purchase the 3000, but then saw only the 5000 had mention of night mode, so guessing it's no good in the dark?

My advice, don't bother. Get a petcam from ebay £25. Connects to your wifi, watch it on your phone, pc, tablet etc from anywhere you have internet connection. You can talk back, has infra red. Its done the job brilliantly.

We bought a separate 2nd hand audio monitor for about a tenner.

I know that feeling. Trust me, get the Tommee Tippee. This is the cheapest I can find: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tommee-Tippee-Closer-Nature-Monitor/dp/B005K7KNUU

I have since bought a BT monitor for our second child (for a similar price actually) and the TT quality is far better. And their customer service is excellent too (replaced a mains charger for free when my son ripped off the end!).

I like the look of the Tommee Tippee (had a look at one in Kiddicare at the weekend), however I was put off by the recent Amazon reviews that said the latest version doesn't appear to turn the sound off properly when it's inactive and you get a lot of hissing, white noise from it all the time. There were several reviews reporting this same fault and one of them was from a parent who'd owned both an older one and a new one and said that only the newest version did it.

I might give it a go though, especially considering Amazon has a very good returns policy if it does indeed have this fault.

It is VTech, so probably accessible to the whole world if they access a plain text password - see their previous record.

We have 2x wifi cameras from Amazon (one for each child), £30 each for HD and nightvision (ours are Vstarcam). We have our phones with us all the time, so can just use those for a screen (no need for a separate one). Easy to set up, work fantastically, can both check on them whenever we want, even when outside the home (the rare date nights when we have a babysitter!)

If companies will treat customers like this, then I'm out.

While I agree that VTech should be given a wide berth when it comes to any internet-connected technology, I'm not sure that IP cameras from unknown manufacturers are any safer. Most are relatively trivial to hack and somewhere down the line your camera will probably stop receiving security updates, making it a prime candidate for hackers, or anyone who wishes to create a botnet.

As far as I can tell, this VTech camera, the BT, Motorola ones and the like use their own wireless technology and never connect to Wifi.

The mystery Chinese camera I have's best bet for security, is through obscurity - I agree on that. There is a non-trivial chance of it being part of the next huge botnet, probably no a lot of patches get pushed to it.

...I'd still prefer that though togiving money to VTech - it is a better product, and they don't have such horrific T&Cs.

Just get an indoor hikvision IP camera.

It will work on your phone, your tablet, in Kodi/XBMC and via a web browser.
It has night vision and 1080p. It doesn't require a special monitor, and when it stops being a baby camera, it can be a useful CCTV camera ...

And it's not a random chinese one. It doesn't require cloud access. It works directly over your network, so only people on your network can view it if they have the password.

they are wifi and wired and support power over ethernet if you want.

And it costs the same as this.
