We say: This has a sensor to alert you if no movement is detected from your baby. You can monitor movement and sound, sound only, or just movement. It has a colour touch screen, two-way communication and a temperature display. We especially like the activity-tracking mode and zoom/rotate camera options. 

Tested by mum Christina and Ethan, 9 weeks: 

All the reassurance you could ever need. Straightforward to set up and it looks and feels first class. The picture quality is fantastic and I love the sensor pad which tracks all movements over a period of time to show when your little one is being disturbed - it turns out the heating coming on at 5.30am was waking Ethan! It's pricey, but it offers the most reassurance by far. 

Tested by mum Felicity and Aphra, 8 months: 

Easy to assemble and I love the design. I'm not a fan of movement sensors though - the alarm sounded twice for no discernible reason, waking both my children. I found the parent unit tricky to use and the screen isn't that responsive - annoying when you can't make the alarm stop! It's best suited to someone who specifically wants to monitor movement. 

Tested by mum Lindsey and Aaliyah, 11 months: 

Wow, this looks beautiful and every detail seems high quality. The picture is very clear, but in sleep mode it's not sound-activated unless you tap the screen, which could be more responsive. The temperature display on the camera is quite bright and the instructions don't explain the features as well as I'd like. It's brilliant, but a little advanced for our needs.
