We test many different types of baby monitor, including:

  • audio
  • video/audio
  • app-based
  • Wi-Fi enabled.

Our report will tell you which models have:

  • the best picture quality in different lighting conditions
  • the clearest audio
  • the greatest range; including how well they perform through walls
  • the best ease of use.

Our interactive comparison tool also helps you filter results based on sound range score and features (such as whether they play music). And our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.
