Great, thanks for posting. I also bought one of these for first baby, and now that we're about to move baby number 2 into her own room we need another monitor. Thanks for posting!

These are really good. Probably the best you can get at this price

Just ordered....Cheers

should say the new one is excellent....but is more expensive

Thanks ordered was looking for new monitor got good reviews

thanks - was looking for this!

These are fantasic, I paid £50 and thought I'd got a bargain..I would highly recommend these.

A superb unit - been totally flawless for us - recommended, and especially so at that price

Sounds like a good piece of kit. Wish I didn't already have a baby monitor.

Its just like putting a small mobile phone mast next to your baby

A one-year-old child could absorb about twice as much radiation per kilogram of body weight as an adult

ordered thanks

Great monitor - highly recommend it. Just a warning though, they are not entirely secure. We had a bizarre situation where if you are using the Bluetooth mobile system in the car outside it could hear what is happening on the baby monitor. Maybe its a dodgy handset/base unit but still worrying.

Firstly that's not correct anyway as it has been deemed safe for use, it's nothing like putting a small mobile phone mast next to a baby. Secondly you don't put it right next to the baby anyway. Ours is over the other side of the room and still picks up every little noise. So stop scaremongering

Its like letting people on the internet and allowing them to post things which they obviously know nothing about....Any proof dude? No? Just talking nonsense are we? Yes.

Cracking monitor, paid about £65 for mine a few years ago, doesnt need to be anywhere near the child, very sensitve for picking up the sound, has a talkback feature, plays lullabys, has a nightlight etc, not found a better one than this ever - usual compare with friends monitors etc and this one just sounds so clear compared to others. Cracking price, would vote hot twice if i could!

Apart from being on a totally different wavelength and at a level of power where it'll only work for a few hundred metres with no obstacles?!

I'd better throw out the cordless house phone while I'm at it, oh and get a court injunction to not allow anyone to use mobile phones/tv's/microwaves within a mile of my house!

Thanks to itisnot for the scaremongering and the creativity with facts. It's good occasionally to get a sense of balance (!)

Anyway, these are exceptional baby monitors....bought two previosuly for my friends and family and they are fantastic....and just bought one for 2 day old new born!

Great build and sound quality, packed with features and easy on the eye

Hot, hot, hot!!!!

Can anybody comment on reception quality?

We have a baby monitor setup but the reception is terrible. Yes you can hear pretty much everything but there is this constant buzzing noise. You can turn the volume down which helps but of course defeats the object as you cant hear as well.

I got one of these the other week as a replacement for the same item which I got 2.5 years ago but has recently stopped linking the parent unit with the base unit.

I got one from here telephonesonline.co.uk/mot…rs/ for £35 (but got free delivery as I bought somethign else). They have quite a few to choose from and always seem to be at a good price. Items may be refurbished but come with a 12 month warranty.

Reception is great, no buzzing noise - if you have the sensitivity on levels 1 to 4 then the unit only makes any noise at all when the noise level in the room gets to a certain point. At level 4 almost any noise from the baby will set the unit into action. Level 5 is 'always on' although there is still no buzzing noise.

Is it worth paying the £2.50 extra for this one? The BT 200 ? I'm not sure if the higher number means it's better (?!)

That's the 'new' version that is comparable with the features on the 'old' BT100. This BT150 is comparable with the BT250 which is £59 on Amazon.

To be honest I can't see any difference at all between the 'old' and 'new' versions apart from how it looks, and I much prefer the 'old' styling anyway.

Looking at the reviews of the 250 they're not exactly favourable either...


"Got the 250 as an exhange from the BT 150 which had a faulty charger. Absolutely gutted we chose this instead of searching for the 150 (retailer no longer stocked that model) elsewhere.

Cant see how this is an upgrade. Far fewer features than the 150, and the sensitivity feature is poor. Its either on or off, and on the 150 you could set this to whatever level you wished (1-5) which was a fantastic feature for cutting out unwanted noises during the night. The part mute on this one is far less accurate, and although you can set it to mute everything until your baby really starts crying, its not a feature i'd recomend using given the difficulty getting baby back to sleep after he has reached thundering levels of crying...

Also the 150 base unit had its own digital display, with music, temperature etc on it (handy as you didnt have to take the monitor everywhere) whereas this has nothing, and instead a nightlight that changes colour depending on the temperature (great feature BT... but what if i dont want the nightlight on? Gimmicj alert!). You basically have to look at the hand unit to tell the temperature which is fine, but the 150 had this on both units.

More annoying, the BATTERY LIFE is shocking. The 150 would go 15-18 hours without a charge, this one struggles to get through the night.
All in all this is a definate downgrade to the 150, so if you are looking for a baby monitor get the 150 which is fantastic, and the same price, and not this overpriced cut down version.

In addition, after two days, it has decided to turn itself off randomly during the night...."

Yeah - must comment, I've noticed my 2 yr old his looking rather peeky after using this since he was born - the baby (now 5 months) is already losing his hair as well.

Shocking stuff!

Ah ok thanks, this helps me because I've been looking at getting the 250 but it's quite a lot more money, maybe the 150 will do.

That's excellent. Our 2 year old get's terrible mobile coverage in his cotbed. He'll be able to tweet when he wants some milk now.

Wanted one of these for a while and this has made me bite the bullit.

Ta !

Reception as already said is superb, no static noise etc, although the one thing I have noticed when late at night and monitor on in my room - if the unit is on charge, there is a slight noise to it that comes and goes every second or two, hardly noticeable in all honesty but thats about the only time you will get any form of interference on it...

Anyone in 2 minds about it, just buy it, you will not be sorry - sooo much better than the cheapo ones on the market. Quiet as a mouse, carries sound well - can hear my little girl breathe when she is sleeping and the unit is usually 2 metres or so away from her.

From an article in the independent

Professor Olle Johansson of Sweden's Karolinska Institute said that the cells of a growing baby are "very susceptible". Powerwatch, an information service on radiation, says: "A Dect monitor placed in your baby's bedroom will expose them to more pulsing microwave radiation than living near to a mobile phone mast would do. We have had a number of reports from parents that their babies did not sleep well and cried a lot when they used Dect monitors." It added that older wired and analogue monitors do not raise the same concerns.

I am after a baby monitor, does anyone know how the BT150 compares to the Angelcare AC401 Baby Movement Sensor Pad and Sound Monitor? Is the movement sensor pad worth the extra money?

I know people with them and they give so many false alarms that either you're in to the baby every 5mins or ignore it meaning there's no point having it. All down to personal preference though.

For all the usual random cold voters - if you can find it cheaper then say so, lots of people would benefit

Or...maybe the babies just didn't sleep through - I know mine never did and thats regardless of monitor as when we stayed over at families we would use their monitors not ours...

Still, give enough monkeys enough type writers and I am sure they will prove that DECT monitors can fly you to the moon as well... Have they tested household Wifi units? Mobile phone use? DECT phone systems in a house? Houses close to the national grid? so on and so forth.............
