The electronic friend of the kid and mother of

the Radio nurse - rather new invention. Its main objective is simple - to allow to move quietly to parents on the house, without being afraid for the events in a nursery.

the Radio nurse represents two small devices, one of which settles down near the kid, and mother can carry another with herself. Thanks to this device parents can do surely household chores, the radio nurse transmits all sounds made by the baby - both shout, and grunting, and puffing. In the future the radio nurse is useful too: with its help it is easy to understand whether is going to pass the child from peaceful game with a doll to conquest of a window sill or to hear and hurry to calm the kid who woke up from a bad dream.

As a rule, the principle of action at all models identical and very simple: you put the transmitter near the child that it caught all sounds, and with the block can move on the house or just put the receiver near itself.

But these assistants to parents also have some minuses. In - the first, the majority of the models presented at the market react to foreign signals and can reproduce the sounds made by wireless phones or other mobile devices. Also radio nurses can catch sounds from similar handheld transceivers of neighbors. Therefore sometimes you should not discuss personal records at the included radio nurse. Though the most high-quality devices have to “learn“ only the radio frequency.

For example, new digital radio nurses of Philips AVENT use the DECT technology which guarantees protection against hindrances. Thanks to system of coding of data and the automatic choice of one of 120 free channels you can be sure of “security“ of the house space.

One more widespread minus: generally radio nurses work from batteries which have feature “to sit down“ at the most inappropriate moment. For this reason it is better to buy the modern models supplied with rechargeable accumulators.

Should pay attention and to the radius of action of the radio nurse. In general, for the usual apartment much it is also not necessary: the device with a radius of reception of 100 meters will approach. But if you live in the country or in own house, or want to have an opportunity to go down in shop on the first floor - it is necessary to buy “the serious device“ with a radius of action up to 300 meters.

Quite often parents complain that at night the device awakes the kid. The matter is that the children`s transmitter is supplied with bulbs. When the device is switched simply on, burns red and when the transmitter catches a sound, - also green lights up. If the child sleeps sensitively, try to block the device a toy or a pile of books. However, some of latest models have the built-in night lamp having soft light. Such muffled light calms the kid, creates a cosiness in the nursery, the child falls asleep quicker and more strong sleeps.

is Closed by the list of shortcomings one more parental complaint: the radio nurse often does not allow to fall asleep, too loudly broadcasting each rustle and stir of the child. It can become a big problem therefore it is better not to save and buy the device with “perfect ear“ that its sound sensitivity was regulated at least in the range from 1 to 10.

the Important prevention for owners of all radio nurses without exception: to avoid accidents, never you hold water or other liquids near the radio nurse. Whatever “clever“ was the device, do not forget that it is, first of all, electronics.

we will try to make an ideal portrait of the radio nurse Now. One of the main requirements - compactness. The model is less, the it is more convenient to carry it. Very opportunely also function of additional light indication is necessary. When you watch TV or talk to somebody, there is a probability not to hear the weak sounds made by your child. However, if the receiver has light indication, then, having looked at it, you will be able to learn at once that the kid requires attention.

also “sociable“ models of radio nurses Exist. They allow to talk to the child or to sing to him. Some parents use this function to lull woken up the baby, without coming into its room. Such feature can be very good help for the choice of the radio nurse.


, already mentioned Philips AVENT radio nurses as much as possible conform to all these requirements. The latest digital models differ in the advanced parental block (receiver) which provides full freedom of movement and comfort of parents. Besides lack of hindrances, Philips AVENT can brag reception with an increased radius up to 330 meters. And the communication continuity between children`s and parental blocks is confirmed by a light and sound signal. As for device dimensions, the recharged parental block very easy, and it it is possible to hang up on a neck or to attach a special clip to a belt. And some models do not demand recharge within 24 hours so it is not necessary to remember their “food“ the whole day from Philips AVENT.

All radio nurses of Philips AVENT allow to lower or increase sensitivity of the microphone so at desire you will even be able to hear breath of the kid or to absolutely disconnect a sound, being guided by light indication of a voice of the child. And the most rare function of radio nurses: sensor of temperature and level of humidity. Philips AVENT devices watch temperature and level of humidity in the room of the kid and signal when conditions become not the most comfortable. It is very useful function, considering that babies very long get used to temperature drops and suffer from excessive dryness of air.

Also parents have more opportunities for long-awaited rest thanks to the built-in night lamp and specially picked up lullabies. The radio nurse of Philips AVENT can calm and sing a song to your kid, and you should not rise and run to his room. Or you can lull the child by means of function of feedback.

in conclusion we will give one simple advice: on what your choice stopped before taking the radio nurse in the house, check it in business. For example, in shop it is possible to estimate possibilities of reception of the device and its sensitivity to hindrances.
