Worked well till it didn’t


Worked extremely well for the first 9months. A few small issues with the temperature feature. But overall was happy. However, the last week it has been randomly disconnecting from the camera. I reconnect it then hours later it disconnects again. I have ended up sleeping on the floor in my baby’s room the last 2 nights.

Purchased in August 2020.

Reliable Baby Monitor


After returning another brand baby monitor we chose the Vtech BM5500. We have been very impressed with the quality of image, range/coverage & audio.

This is not the fanciest model on the market but it definitely does what we need it to. It has a lovely big screen & it is very easy to move the camera. The temperature display is also very handy.

My only suggestions for improvement would be to improve battery life (it lasts a few hours without charging) & for VTech to design an arm that will hold the circular base of the owl camera for mounting.

Purchased in January 2020 at Baby Bunting for $216.00.

Amazing product for our first baby girl :)


Have been using this for nearly 2 weeks now non stop. Very handy to always check the room temperature and the fact that you can move the owls head remotely is so convenient

How do u keep the monitor on at all times

How on earth do you disable the loud beep when saving settings? It also happens when you turn the unit on and off. It’s so stupid. Clearly design by a non parent..
