Review Summary:

Although this BT baby monitor has the clear, HD, two-way audio and night vision video that you would expect from an upmarket baby monitor, this unit is more than just a baby monitor, with the lightshow, music and sounds aiding peaceful sleep. The touchscreen is also a useful way of navigating this model's functions.

The 7500 is at the opposite end of BT’s baby monitor range from the 300 and has all the bells and whistles you’d expect from the top-of-the-range model, including this unit’s unique selling point: the lightshow and lullaby feature. The Lightshow Monitor projects twinkling stars and moons onto the ceiling, combined with a choice of 19 tunes and sounds including lullabies, classical music, traditional nursery rhymes, sounds from nature, white noise, and even womb sounds. This makes the unit more versatile as it can actually help the baby get to sleep and stay asleep as well as just monitoring whether the baby is sleeping.

This model features the classic curved, white, yellow and purple BT styling which many customers feel is very suited to a baby’s room, as well as HD two-way sound with a 50m range indoors and up to 300m outdoors. It also has a cry alert, low battery alarm and out-of-range alert.

The camera has a pan and tilt feature on the baby’s unit and a touchscreen to navigate the options on the parent’s unit. The 7500 can support an additional 3 cameras (4 in total) which can be viewed together using a split-screen function on the parent’s screen and with rotating sound, or by choosing which camera to listen in to. The picture is enhanced by night vision in darkness. The quality of the picture is a matter of debate amongst customers but the vast majority of users have been impressed with, or at least satisfied with the definition and quality, with only a small number feeling it is fuzzy or not clear enough.

For ease of use, most of this model’s functions can be navigated from the parent’s unit, including turning the night light on and off in the baby’s room, selecting music or sounds, checking the room temperature, and using the lightshow. These features can also be used with a timer.

Considering the amount of functions on this monitor, most customers have been impressed with how easy it has been to set up and use. The intuitive menu on the touchscreen is an especially popular way of finding all the options and features.

The parent’s unit is charged with a standing micro-USB charger which is standard rather than proprietorial, so other chargers can be used.

  1. Hi everyone, I’m a new mother and I’m trying to get my four month little one to sleep longer during night. Currently I’m lucky to get three hours sleep a night. Thanks
