What is the best baby monitor with images and sound?

And which one has the best price-quality ratio?

NU.nl and the Consumers' Association provide an answer.

With a baby monitor with image and sound you can see what is happening in the nursery.

The range and battery life are less good than with baby monitors with sound only.

The Consumers' Association tests baby monitors for sound quality, image quality, range of the direct connection and ease of use.

A total of 38 baby monitors have been tested and are readily available.

Within the category of baby monitors with image and sound, a baby monitor from Luvion is the Best in the Test.

The Best Buy is from Motorola.

Best in Test: Luvion Prestige Touch 2

  • Price: 219 euros

  • Test verdict: 6.7

  • Voice activated (VOX): yes

The Luvion has been on the market for some time.

He does not score very high with a 6.7.

Nevertheless, this model of all baby monitors with image and sound is the Best in the Test.

Baby monitors with video generally score lower due to a shorter range and shorter battery life.

The screen of the Luvion is good.

It is a large 7-inch screen.

You can control the camera and zoom in and out via the screen.

Sound quality is good too.

You can talk back to your baby via a microphone in the screen.

Do you have several children's rooms to keep an eye on?

Then you can buy extra cameras.

You can monitor up to four cameras simultaneously via the screen.

Unfortunately, the battery of the screen does not last long.

This one only lasts about three hours.

The camera in the nursery only works via mains power, so it is not bothered by it.

Best Buy: Motorola Comfort 40 Connect

  • Price: 130 euros

  • Test verdict: 6.6

  • Voice activated (VOX): no

  • Talkback function: yes

  • Find the lowest price

This Motorola model is a lot cheaper than the Luvion.

It only scores slightly lower and has the best price-quality ratio.

The screen is of good quality.

It is a lot smaller (2.8 inches) than that of the Luvion and does not turn on automatically with sound.

An advantage of this baby monitor is that you can also watch via your smartphone.

This works through the Hubble for Motorola Monitors app.

You do need an account.

The biggest advantage of viewing via your smartphone is the range.

The range of the screen is insufficient.

The connection will start to falter after about 35 meters.

The screen lasts a lot longer on a full battery than the Luvion, about ten hours.

As with the Luvion, the cameras in the baby room only work on mains power.

You can also buy extra cameras.

You can monitor up to four cameras at the same time.

The Motorola sound is also good and you can talk back to your baby remotely.

Accountability

In this column we write weekly about household and technological appliances that have been tested by the Consumers' Association.

This is a collaboration between the independent editors of NU.nl and the Consumers' Association.

The Consumers' Association tests thousands of products every year, together with qualified technicians in specialized laboratories at home and abroad.

The products being tested are store-bought so they are not pre-manipulated by manufacturers.

New models are tested as soon as possible after introduction.

How fast that is differs per product.

The Best in the Test is the product with the best test rating.

This can also be a somewhat older model, because a newer model is not always better.

The Best Buy is the product with the best price-quality ratio.
