For this review, Goodto.com asked one of our parent testers to try out the VTech RM7767HD Smart Video baby monitor with her baby son Logan.

Our parent tester, Jenny, found the 7" screen easier to view than many of the other standard units she's tried. She also likes the fact that she can easily switch between using the smart app or the parent unit to monitor her baby. And while the parent unit isn't touchscreen, the navigation controls to the right of the screen are very easy to use.

In a nutshell

The large, high-definition 7” 1080p colour display makes the VTech Smart Video baby monitor a brilliant buy. This gives an excellent picture of your child and makes it easy to check in on them at all times. The fact that you can use the parent unit wirelessly gives you the flexibility to move around the house easily whilst keeping it close to hand, meaning you can keep an eye on your baby from any room.

We also love that you can play lullabies to your baby via this monitor.

Price & availability

At around £200, this Vtech Smart Video baby monitor is towards the premium end of the spectrum, but we think it's great value for money because of all the extra features packed into it. It allows you to see and hear your baby with full high-definition picture quality and gives you all the useful tools you'd expect from a good quality baby monitor. These include two-way talk, lullabies, a night light, clear picture quality, and the ability to view your baby on both a parent unit and a smart app for ultra convenience and flexibility.

Design & features

Type: Smart video monitor | Motion alerts: No

It's especially easy to control the features on this baby monitor so it's ideal if you're looking for something intuitive to use. Our tester could easily access the two-way talk feature on both the parent unit and the smart app, which came in handy when she wanted to soothe her baby back to sleep with her voice from another room.

The camera has 10 x digital zoom capability and offers wide-angle viewing of up to 110 degrees. The 360-degree pan, tilt, and zoom can be controlled via both the smart app and parent unit. 'I like the way that both the smart app and parent unit sync up when you're controlling this feature on either screen,' says Jenny. 'The app will also record any movement automatically and you can save this to your phone in the special 'Memories' section. The automatic colour night vision also gives me a great picture when it's dark.'

How we tested

  • Used the baby monitor for a minimum of two weeks for both naps and overnight sleeping.
  • Downloaded the app and tested out all the features to see how the babies responded to them and which we used the most. 

Things you won't find on the box

Jenny found the Vtech Smart Video baby monitor very easy to set up. 'When I turned on the parent unit it instantly guided and prompted me through the setup,' she says. 'The parent unit connects to WiFi to improve the range. And after downloading the Vtech Baby Pro app and scanning the QR code on the parent unit from my phone, the smart app was easily paired with the camera.'

She particularly likes the simple but effective combination of white noise and lullabies that can be controlled from both the app and the parent unit. 'Sometimes a bright nightlight can disturb a child's sleep, so I like the fact that the night light on this camera can be easily dimmed remotely.'

She also found it easy to adjust the motion and sound sensitivity. 'This means I am not unnecessarily disturbed every time Logan moves around when he's asleep,' she says. 'There's also a temperature alert range setting that you can tailor to your preference. I chose 16 degrees to 22 degrees, which means it notifies me if the temperature in the baby's room goes out of that range.'
