What Are 2 Way Baby Monitors?
2 way baby monitors are one of the most popular baby monitor types that you will find. One of the reasons for this is the fact that they are easy to set up and use. They are also very affordable. Two way baby monitors allow a parent or caretaker to hear their baby even if they are not with them. These devices work in a similar way as that of a cordless phone, except the audio is transmitted from the transmitter to the receiver on the other end.
There are many reasons why parents or caregivers may want to use a baby monitor. One reason is so that they can hear their baby at all times but still be able to do other things while the baby is sleeping. For instance, some baby monitors can pick up other sounds outside of the baby's sleep such as a rumbling car or doors shutting. This can be important when trying to get your baby to sleep when you are unable to.
2 way baby monitors generally transmit an audio signal, which is usually in stereo. You will need to have a stereo receiver or mix if you want to get this working properly. Most transmitters can pick up two different sound sources at the same time. Some transmitters only pick up one source. Some two-way baby monitors also have audio options which allow you to control what you hear by using an external speaker. This feature is great if you want to be able to hear your baby even when you cannot be right there.
Some baby monitors can pick up and play recordings of calming music. This helps your baby to relax and drift off to sleep easier. It is important to make sure the music is not too loud though or else the baby could be disturbed. Two-way baby monitors that incorporate CDs often come with extra features such as auto play or repeat, so you do not have to manually start the recording over again.
When it comes to features, most baby monitor comes with a vibrating alert. This lets you know when your baby needs you by sending an audible message. The main disadvantage to this is that if the baby were to wake up you would have to wake them up again which could be difficult to do.
When it comes to price, this is one of the least expensive types of baby monitor available. It does not need to connect to any wires and there are no additional features to wire connections. The cost of most models is less than $100. With all these options you can expect to find a baby monitor that suits your budget perfectly.
