In this section, you’ll find our in depth reviews of the video baby monitors we’ve looked at, including lots of research into the views of other customers. In order to give you a useful, detailed and objective perspective of the products we feature, we think that it’s important to incorporate other people’s views too, not just those of our team that write (and collate) the information on this website. While we do our best to keep everything up to date, it’s possible that products will change over time, perhaps adding or removing features. For this reason, we highly recommend that you double check the descriptions of the products before you buy at the point of purchase. Our favourite way to validate the information is to use Amazon, as they have spent a lot of time providing the tools for customers to understand not only what’s in the box, but also the specific features in the latest version of the product on sale. On each review page, you’ll find a direct link to the item selling on Amazon, so you can check these details easily.
Motorola have proven to be the leader in video baby monitors so far, with their range dominating our top ten table. They’re an American company, based in Illinois, and make a wide variety of electronics, not just baby monitors. Many people know them for their range of mobile phones (such as the RAZR) a decade or so ago, but they fell by the wayside, losing ground to the likes of Nokia and Apple’s iPhone. They’ve also had huge success with their set top boxes for TV and home internet connection equipment.
Back to the matter in hand, Motorola’s baby monitors are market leaders, so we highly recommend taking a look in our Motorola reviews section!
When you think of Samsung, you probably think of computers, TVs, mobile phones and tablets. They also make video monitors too, which you’ve probably guessed as we’re including them here.
You’ll find two of Samsung’s monitors in our top ten table too, so it’s definitely worth giving them a look. In brief, they’ll mainly appeal to people looking for a baby monitor with a bigger screen to watch over their child, but have a look in this Samsung section to get all the detail on the units we’ve had a look at.
Not many people will think of Ex-Pro when they’re looking to buy a baby monitor, unless they’ve been doing their research. We highly recommend reading our review on this monitor, as we were very impressed with what we saw.
In fact, you’ll find Ex-Pro in our current top ten table, and while they’re not in our top three, they’ve outperformed Samsung when we balanced price and features to put our top picks chart together.

Like Ex-Pro, BW are a relative unknown compared to the likes of Samsung and Motorola. In the BW section, you’ll find a monitor that actually looks like it’s designed for kids, a refreshing change when you compare it to the rest we’ve covered up to now.

How A Review Works
The breakdown of our reviews is simple. We categorise the reviews by the manufacturer, and you can find those on the main menu, or below. As the site grows as time passes, you’ll notice that there are more and more reviews in each section as products are replaced and existing ones retired. We keep those old reviews as people do sometimes buy them from place like eBay second hand, or in the sales when stores clear old stock. To get the latest and greatest models, you can look at the front page of the site where you’ll find our top ten current models.
We’ll give you a brief introduction to the product, along with the key features that you will be looking for. This should give you a quick reference as to what you can expect, so that you can shortlist or choose your favourite. We will then move on to the views of customers that already own the monitor you’re looking at, so that you can get some thoughts from real parents. We organise these based on the most popular comments (popular meaning most common occurring, rather than just telling you the positives!) and then finally sum up with some concluding notes. Wherever possible, as we mentioned earlier, we’ll also give you a link to Amazon, as they’re the biggest store on the web, and tend to have the widest range with the most information available.
