    Tomy baby monitor

    Hi Portia,

    I have EXACTLY the same experience as you did. My Tomy monitor gets disconnected suddenly in the middle of the nite all the time. And supposedly, when I shut it off (the mother unit) and restart again, it will search the signal automatically, so I don't need to go to my daughter's room to reset her side. However, that's not the case very often and that's very annoying. I actually contacted the Tomy office and exchanged the unit 3 times already, but it still happens, I guess this model really has problem!!!! May I ask how big is your flat? Mine is about 2000 sq ft, and I am not sure if that affects the connection.

    So how's the Angelcare monitor? Are you happy w/ it?

    Thanks!

I tried the Tomy Platinum which had fantastic sound quality (could hear the baby breathing), but in our flat the connection kept breaking and you would have to go into the baby's room to reset the baby unit and then the parent unit. Quite annoying when the connection breaks several times in the middle of the night and you have to get up to reset it each time! In the end, we bought the Angelcare monitor.

    I've searched on the web and seems like the Philips one has good reputation. But if you buy from UK, is the power unit the same as in HK? If so, maybe I should get one from UK too. Pls advise. Thanks.

    reading from AC/DC adaptor.

    Input: 230V 50Hz 50mA.
    Output: 9VDC 300mA

    I am using it in the UK but I think this should be fine for HK.

    Its on sale at Boots for £62.49 and there is a £10 discount voucher floating about. (voucher code SJMA36)

    Boots don't ship to HK so your best bet is to ask a relative or friend to airmail it to HK.

    i m using one with both sound & view. reception is very good. no interference as well cos it's a digital one.

    i found it in baby expo. it's called momsee. the co. contact is 2555-1830.

    i guess it's made in Korea? cos the package is in Korean...

    The Philips Digital monitor is now in B2B. I bought mine from the UK back in March when it wasn't available in HK but saw them in B2B the other week.
