This past week, I had 2 sick kids at home that needed to stay in bed and also have access to a humidifier. Obviously it was important to keep the door to the room closed, but I also needed to keep an eye on them both. In my bedroom I set the TV to their favorite children’s channel, tucked them in to rest, and then turned on the humidifier.
I then set up the VTech Safe & Sound Monitor so I could make sure they were taking it easy and staying in the bed.
This was a perfect opportunity to put this technology to good use since it encouraged them to stay in the room and communicate with me via the monitor. I could also ask them how they were feeling and check in to see if they needed a drink or snack while I was working in the other room.
It also showed me when my toddler decided to stand on the bed, which I quickly told him to sit down via the speaker.
The VTech Safe & Sound Monitor Model VM333 has a camera with full-motion video and color that pans up to 270 degrees side-to-side, tilts as many as 124 degrees up and down and also zooms up to 2x. It also includes automatic night vision, talk-back intercom, and is an expandable system that supports viewing of up to 4 total cameras from one parent unit.
