Are Chinese Brand Baby Monitors Any Good?

Hey everyone,

I'm looking at buying a baby monitor for my sister to use with her newborn and wanted to know if anyone had any experience with cheap, Chinese baby monitors. If so, how was your experience with them? Are there any highly regarded Chinese brands?

I appreciate any advice you guys can give me.

    Why does it have to be Chinese?

      It doesn't have to be, but I am looking for a budget baby monitor and was wondering how one from a seller such as Gearbest would compare to a cheap one from a seller such as Big W or Harvey Norman.

          No, I sat next to a Chinese family on a flight to Hong Kong and their baby was babbling in exactly the same way as my Anglo baby.

          @donga100: maybe you accidentally were given a Chinese baby at the hospital.

    Just don't get the ones that broadcast communist propaganda when the baby is sleeping

      Why? I thought that communist propaganda might help the baby go to sleep.

    They are probably fine as long as they aren't transmitting the picture back to a Chinese server somewhere like one particular brand does with its IP cameras…

    xiaomi everything

    Don’t do it! It records your babies comments and sends them all back to China! They are just farming babies for information to store on their servers! /s

    Thought the usual tinfoil hat brigade would be all over this with their “China spy’s on you” and “WiFi/radio waves give you cancer” rhetoric…

    aren't they all made in China? I think u can find decent quality ones, maybe less pretty maybe not as long lasting, but if it's budget u look for, why not?
