VTech VM321 Safe & Sound Video Monitor

VTech has been a front runner in technology for years, so it is no surprise that they have one of the top scoring video baby monitors on the market. With awards from Creative Child Magazine, National Parenting Publications and She Knows, you can rest assured that this monitor is everything you would want or need for your family.

 

review 300

The VTech VM321 has all the bells and whistles a new or seasoned mom wants.

  • Infrared Light
  • Talk-Back Intercom
  • Wall Mountable
  • Adjustable Camera
  • Full Color Video
  • Split-Screen Viewing
  • Temperature Indicator
  • Vibrating Sounds Alert
Packaging:

When we took it out of the packaging my husband was beyond thrilled. It was so easy to unpack! Typically with electronics and all things baby it takes 5 hours (okay I am exaggerating) to get out of the packaging. This monitor is secured in there safely but not so over the top that you need a nap after removing from the box.

Installation:

My husband had no issue installing this unit. The instructions were so simple and straight forward. No technical degree required 😉

Use:

The parent unit supports up to four total cameras to be viewed from one parent unit. Viewing modes include single view, dual view, and quad view split screen to view up to 4 rooms at the same time. I have one video monitor, so I am only going to be talking about the single screen option

I love that the temperature is clearly displayed on the parent unit. As most of us know, to help lower the risk of SIDS, a child’s room should be kept between 68 to 72 degrees. I am able to see if it is too hot or too cold in my babies room. The parent unit features a temperature alert. You can set it so that you will be notified when the monitored room temperature drops or reaches to a certain set point.

Having infrared LED in the monitor allows a clear picture when he is sleeping. I love being able to clearly see his face and that he is breathing when I am in the other room. Having the color feature makes it so much more fun to use. When lights are off and night vision is being used the screen will only project black & white. The best feature, in my opinion, is the tilt feature. You can turn the video unit in so many angels and directions that I can make sure I get the exact angle needed to see my child in my room. So many video monitors are stand still and do not offer this feature. Then you may not get a full view of the crib/desired area. The VTech VM321 gives way more versatility to the user.  Hands down I would recommend this system to any parent.

The parent unit can be charged (charger included) and used hands free. It will need 4 AA batteries. I love that you can have it charged by the wall but also have the battery back up in case you forget and it runs low. You can set the sensitivity of sound, turning up and down the sensitivity of sounds coming from the monitored room. It is available in English, French and Spanish. Finally, it also allows you to have the monitor unit play lullabies in the monitored room. There are 5 lullabies to choose from. It will play on repeat for approximately 20 minutes.

    Baby monitors were just beginning to be popular when I had my son 27 years ago. Nothing like this one. I just love the split screen feature!

    I am a big fan of Vtech. Which would be important, because I have been reading so much about how these monitors can be hacked into so random people can see the video. I would need to trust the product, and I do trust Vtech.

    i think one of the best things with this baby monitor is it can grow with the child…first in the crib, then as they’re playing when they’re older and you’re making dinner or as they get older still, use it for security to aim at the front door. it makes this a wise and long lasting investment.

    We have a grandson due in July and I don’t believe his parents have a video monitor. This would make a great gift and I’m sure they would really appreciate being able to keep a close eye on their little one. Thanks 🙂

    Wish I had one of these when I was raising horses, to monitor the Mares when they were getting ready to foal. This is very nice for young parents to be able to have, technology has come along way.
