    VTech DM221-2

    The Vtech DM221-2 is one of the most affordable high-quality battery operated baby monitors on the market right now, they allow parents to have more freedom due to their range and portability.

    This baby monitor comes with a couple of rechargeable batteries that can last for up to 18 hours, which means it can be used for one or two days (it depends on how much time the monitor is used during a 24 hours trip).

    The maximum range of the DM221-2 baby monitor is 1000 feet (or 304m), this range will give the parents some freedom to walk around the camping area while staying in range with the baby unit.

    It comes with a display of 3.5in that allows you to check the monitor’s battery state and the noise level in the proximity of your baby. but sadly, this monitor doesn’t have a video monitoring capability, so if you are searching for an alternative with this features you can check the Infant optics DXR-8

    Here are some pros of the Vtech DM221 baby monitor

    • The top feature that we really loved in this monitor is the vibration/sound alert when it detects a sound in the baby’s room, the parent will know immediately that their baby is awake without manually listening to check for any sounds.
    • The portability.
    • The sound alert when the units are out of range or and the battery is empty.
    • A two-way communication link that allows parents to send and receive sounds to and from the baby unite.

    But we didn’t like

    • No video communication.

    Infant Optics DXR-8

    The Infant Optics DXR-8 is one of the best selling baby monitors on the market today, most parents like to hear and most importantly see their baby when they are away in the campsite.

    Parents can take the battery operated screen with them and keep constant contact with their sleeping child. This 3.5 inches LCD screen unit uses 2 rechargeable AAA batteries as a power source. These batteries can last for 10 hours. 

    The video quality is very acceptable for a surveillance system, you can also zoom the camera or change its angle to get the best view.

    You can also measure the temperature near your baby using its internal sensors (Celsius and Fahrenheit). And a big plus for this monitor is the multiple lenses that can be used on it depending on the situation.

    The range of this monitor is 700ft.

    And just like the previous monitor, you can have a two-way communication link for safety.
