The walkie-talkie system
- There is a receiver to install in the room where the baby is and a headset to keep close to you. You can increase or decrease the sound at will.
- These two objects can be connected to the mains or run on batteries for nomadic use.
Some models can make sounds to the baby, others also serve as video surveillance phone and even music box light.
Why use babyphone?
Thanks to this surveillance system, no one wakes up any more baby while entering his room to see if all is well.
The little one could wake up
- If he hears a person enter (crunching, breathing, opening the door ...)

- The videophone can be both reassuring if you see the baby moving or stressful if there is no movement in a few minutes. We can not distinguish between breathing, which can be quickly distressing.
- The musical and bright babyphones. Several melodies and light shows can be chosen. We can opt for the night light, the fixed or animated drawings on the ceiling or on the wall. Some children like to watch bright things move or see their surroundings, while falling asleep, others may be frightened by these forms. They prefer to sleep in the dark.
- The smartphone can also be used as a baby monitor thanks to an application to download. We can then use a smartphone + a tablet or two smartphones or a monitor sold in childcare stores connectable with your smartphone.
