29 June 2016

BEAVERTON, Ore., June 29, 2016 – VTech knows that hard-working parents appreciate technology that lets them watch over and comfort their little ones. Today, VTech® Communications Inc. announced the addition of six new monitors to its award-winning baby monitor line, designed to meet the unique needs of any family. Knowing that parents want everything from fully capable cameras with large displays and automatic night vision to simple audio monitors that blend into the design of a nursery, VTech offers reliable, affordable systems for any household.

Because the company’s modern and fun owl-shaped baby monitor was so well-received, VTech has introduced new animal-shaped video and audio baby monitors. In addition, it is expanding the number of products with features such as open/closed sensors, two-way, talk-back intercoms, temperature monitoring and DECT 6.0 digital technology to increase range and help prevent eavesdropping.

“Every family has different needs, so we have taken care to design a spectrum of versatile baby monitors that lets parents choose what is best for their household,” said Matt Ramage, senior vice president, sales and product management, VTech. “Our line of monitors is flexible, reliable, modern and fun, providing real value and peace of mind to families and parents.”

The increased array of features of VTech’s ever-expanding family of Safe&Sound® monitors allow parents to think beyond their current needs and toward the future. VTech’s products can be used as children grow and become more independent, and additional monitors can be added to the system to keep track of multiple children in different rooms.                                                                                        

VTech’s 2016 baby monitor line includes six new products with rich features at competitive prices:

When little ones need comforting, parents can use the two-way, talk-back intercom without entering their child’s room, in addition to the monitor’s built-in lullaby and soothing sounds. The monitor can expand up to four cameras, allowing parents to keep an eye on children in multiple rooms at the same time.

The unit also comes equipped with a glow-on-ceiling night light that projects the moon and stars onto the ceiling, and the ability to play a gentle lullaby to help baby get some shut eye.

  • VTech Safe&Sound DECT 6.0 Digital Audio Baby Monitor (DM225) — The adorable owl shape of this DECT 6.0 audio monitor adds a fun look to a baby’s room, while the built-in night light around the owl’s eyes provides a gentle glow.
