Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for VTech - Safe and Sound 1.9 GHz Digital Audio Baby Monitor, DM221. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.30 stars, and the price range is $39.95-$42.99.

The VTech – Safe and Sound Baby Monitor includes a 1,000 feet operating range, DECT digital technology for interference free audio, an encrypted connection and visual vibrating alerts. The lightweight, battery operated parent unit functions up to 18 hours on a single charge and has a built-in belt clip to move freely in and around the house. The back-lit display is easy to read even in the dark. The DECT 6.0 Digital technology ensures crystal clear sound transmission without any white noise static interference. It also includes a talk-back intercom and soft night-light to help comfort your infant during the night. The LED lights indicate the level of sound which can be visually monitored with muted sound on receiver and also has a vibration mode which gently vibrates when baby is fussing.

Even though the range and reception quality is clear, it is sometimes hard to hear the sounds over household noises like dishwasher, heavy fan, AC, TV or even on loud conversations. Many reviewers mentioned that they wished the baby monitor was also battery operated so that it was possible for them to carry it on camping or trips. 

Overall, the VTech – Safe and Sound 1.9 GHz Digital Audio Baby Monitor is highly recommended by users for its 2 way talk feature and good sound clarity.
