How we rate baby monitors

Our review compares baby monitors on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which baby monitor they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 375 Australians for their feedback on new baby monitors they’ve purchased and used in the last three years.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their baby monitor brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:

  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a baby monitor brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Value for money: the price was reasonable for the quality and performance of the baby monitor.
  • Performance: the product performed as detailed in the instructions.
  • Ease of use: the baby monitor was easy to use and operate.
  • Features & functionality: the baby monitor has sufficient features and functions for performance and usability (i.e. two-way communication, music option, motion sensors, heart rate monitor, etc.).
  • Design: the baby monitor has a functional and aesthetically pleasing design (i.e. the size and shape allow it to fit easily into a room, the camera offers multiple angles, etc.).

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  • Oricom
  • VTech
  • Kogan
