Best Baby Monitors for Large House – When you are shopping for a baby monitor for Large House, always keep in mind that the standard baby monitor will not get you very far. Even if you live in a small apartment, you never know when you will be using your monitor on vacation, at the grandparents’ house or even in camping.
My suggestion is always to consider the range factor. Even if your budget can get you only the standard version, maybe you should consider buying a second-hand baby monitor with the longest range. This will save you money in the long term, by avoiding to buy a second baby monitor.
P.S. If you’re seeking for the best long range monitor and hoping to find real reviews from real parents. You should check out this list I created of the top baby monitors of 2020.

Motorola sells two types of baby monitors: regular monitors with camera and parent unit and “connected” units. The latter monitors can either be viewed via a parent unit or via smartphone, thanks to signal streaming over WiFi.
That dual use is unique to Motorola and explains the price premium these monitors command—, depending on the unit.
In general, Motorola has succeeded with baby monitors where others (Levana, D-Link, Foscam) have failed—and the main reason is a wide variety of monitors and price points.

The Babysense monitor is very easy to set up. It consists of a parent unit, a baby unit, and two power adapters. The parent unit has a built-in lithium-ion battery so we could charge it and carry it around, as well as a kickstand. We made sure to charge the parent unit fully prior to our first use (more on charging and battery life later).
Parents have the option of placing the baby unit on a flat surface such as a dresser or shelf (self-explanatory) or mounting it to the wall. We opted to do the former, making sure it wasn’t up against a wall or too far from the monitor, as the manual recommends (we’ll come back to this in a minute). We were disappointed to see that there were no instructions in the user guide on wall installation, but if you have any other issues during setup or use of the monitor, there is an included troubleshooting guide.

The product is expandable, which means you can attach two more cameras to the existing two. The digital transmission does not use the internet, protecting you and your family from hackers.
The device includes two-way talk features, allowing you to soothe your baby from afar or choose to play one of the five lullabies included from the camera.

4.Infant Optics DXR-8 PRO
Pros & Cons
- Patent-Pending Active Noise Reduction Feature -filters out background noises so you can hear your baby more clearly. Removes unwanted sound from fans, air purifiers, humidifiers, air conditioners, static and more.
- Ultra Clear Video Quality: High definition 720P video resolution playback.Type of Modulation:GFSK

- Full Viewing Control: pan/tilt/zoom, interchangeable lenses. Zoom lens included, wide angle lens sold separately. Zoom up to 6x with optical and digital zoom used together

So when Infant Optics reached out to me a couple months ago about trying its newest closed-loop monitor, the DXR-8 PRO, I was intrigued. Not only because I probably have another year (at least) of monitoring my son’s sleep, but also because, with a price just more than the original, I wondered how much different it could actually be?
If judged by looks alone, the answer to that question would be: Not that different. The display unit is bigger and has a larger screen — up to 5 inches from 3.5 inches — but otherwise appears the same. And the cameras themselves are almost identical.
5.Philips AVENT Dect
Pros & Cons
- DECT technology provides zero interference & a private connection
- Night light and lullabies to calm your little one
- Talk-back feature, talk remotely to your baby
- Monitor the temperature in the room. Range up to 1000 feet, LED light to show connection with alerts and night time friendly mode to dim display and sound
- Smart ECO mode automatically minimizes the audio transmission and increases your battery time.
The Philips Avent DECT SCD501/10 is a basic sound monitor that has good sound clarity and is super easy to use. This product has a fairly good range and a battery life that is longer than most parents will need. The price of the DECT SCD501/10 is reasonable considering what you get.
We think this product will work for most families and can act as a main or travel monitor with ease. However, some parents will find the lack of two-way communication and other features to be a deal-breaker, but those features come at a price and a more complicated user interface that will make the monitor harder to use.
Best Baby Monitors for Large House – A long-range baby monitor can help you feel close to your baby, no matter where you are in your home. Some may even let you dash to the garage or the backyard for a minute.
My monitor was my best friend when my babies were small. I could still carry on with daily life — when I had the energy — and know I could keep an eye on my little treasures. Being able to hear every sound, and see them on the monitor, gave me the freedom to move around while they slept.
