In a Nutshell
A long battery-life and a few exotic room-sensor features do not necessarily justify the Philips Avent’s premium price.
Has adjustable temperature alarm. And most other features are present and correct.
The parent unit is compact, and Philips says battery life is 24 hours. Range is slightly better than average, at 45m.
It can, bizarrely, sense humidity level as well as temperature. The five lullabies sound good, too.
The lack of a pager function is a big oversight. Should you lose it, be prepared for a long old hunt.
