Need Video Baby Monitor Recommendations

Its looks like out bebesounds monitor is about to crap out. The video flashes blue and then disappears, the sound stays though. We've been using it for about a year and a bit (bought on Amazon Dec 28 2008). Its the old version they no longer sell.

So, I am wondering if anyone can recommend a good video monitor? We are expecting number 2 in October and wont be able to go monitor free just yet. DD is 18 months old and I still like to see what shes doing in there (I can hear her fine all over the house ). I would like something multichannel so we can maybe have two cameras and can switch channels.

TIA!

Re: Need Video Baby Monitor Recommendations

All the Summer ones seem to have the same complaint about being able to pick up neighbor's babies. That part always freaked me out enough not to buy one. Are their any "secure" video monitors where people can't pick up images of your child?

Re: Need Video Baby Monitor Recommendations

I heard that about the Summer monitors, too....but I have never picked up someone else's baby or conversation. I think that someone would have to live really close with another Summer video monitor for that to happen, and that's gotta be pretty rare.

See, it wouldn't be that rare here. We live in San Diego, and although we are in a quiet neighborhood and live in a single-family home, both of the lots next to us have been converted into apartment complexes with the nearest units being so close that I can hear people sneeze. But really, I'm not worried about other parents seeing my kids. I'm worried that anyone could buy one of these and just see where people's kids are. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but we've had people steal things out of our yard at night. I don't want anyone being able to see where my baby is.

Holy Cow! I contacted Graco Baby (who is apparently Rubbermaid) re my faulty receiver (on a whim) and they are sending me a new one! No questions asked!

Fantastic!

I am SUPER surprised.
