How we test

We assess each monitor's performance on:

  • Sound range (how well it transmits through indoor walls).
  • Sensitivity and sound quality (whether the baby unit picks up soft sounds and how well the parent unit reproduces them).
  • Picture quality (of video monitors).

We also check for interference from a microwave or a digital cordless phone – and whether the monitor causes interference in a TV or a digital cordless phone.

We assess ease of use on:

  • The size and clarity of the labels, indicators and controls.
  • How easy it is to operate the controls and set up the unit.
