Philips Avent SCD501 Baby Monitor Review
Nowadays, it is no longer a problem if you have to spend more time being away from the nursery or your baby’s bedroom. With high-tech and sophisticated monitoring devices like the Philips AVENT Basic Baby Monitor with DECT Technology, you make sure you’re always keeping track and closely monitoring your baby without those usual worries and guilt of having to do something else aside from being right beside your baby.
The Philips AVENT Basic Baby Monitor covers a range of more than a thousand feet. For some, a hundred feet may be enough but for others, covering a wider area means being able to do more things wherever they are in the house. It also makes you feel you’re close to your little kid even when you’re outside doing something or in the kitchen cooking.
Small and Lightweight Design with Belt Clip (Parent Unit)
The parent unit of the baby monitor is anything but basic. It is specifically designed to be light and small and without any cord. The cordless operation makes it possible for the user to take it anywhere within the range. Adding to the convenience is the belt clip for easier and more convenient movement.
Maximum Operation Time
Since the unit is battery operated, there’s that notion of the burden of always charging or replacing the batteries. But with the ingenious engineering from the manufacturer, the Philips Avent SCD501 Basic Baby Monitor parent unit can operate and work for up to twenty four hours on a single eight-hour charge. As soon as the battery is low, there’s an added low batter indicator feature.
The date encryption by way of DECT technology meanwhile provides added security for your communication with the nursery unit. The date sent and transmitted goes through a complex data encryption process so as to make sure you’re the only one who hears your baby’s sound and that the entire transmission remains private.
Adjustable Sound Sensitivity
One of the nice features of the Philips Avent SCD501 Baby Monitor is the adjustable volume level and sound sensitivity. The said feature is quite advantageous since the unit can be adjusted based on the noise level of the environment or the room. As such, there’s no problem determining the baby’s sound to that of the sound of the appliances like the TV, washing machine, dishwasher, or the mower outside.
LED and Alert Signals
The LED lights and signals are another essential feature because it provides another baby sound indicator. This comes in handy when the parent unit is muted. So instead of real time sound, the unit will show lights notifying you that the baby is fussing or stirring.
When you purchase the Philips Avent SCD501, the same carries a product warranty of two years from the manufacturer. The warranty takes effect from the date of the original purchase
How About Drawbacks?
We have to admit that we really didn’t find any notable flaw or negative impression/feedback about the Philips AVENT Basic Baby Monitor with DECT Technology. Perhaps the only tangible drawback is the price. That’s because you have to pay almost $100 or even more for it while you also can purchase other brands of baby audio monitors at less than $50. Anyway, there’s a huge difference in quality and function.
