We were recently sent a Motorola MBP27T Sense The Temperature Baby Monitor to review. Having only used audio baby monitors before we were very excited to see what this digital one from Motorola had to offer.

The Motorola MBP27T Sense The Temperature Digital Video Baby Monitor is not just a video monitor it also features a built-in no-touch thermometer. Motorola has used the latest technology to help you monitor the health of your little one. The digital video monitor has a clear 2.4 inch (6 cm) LCD colour display with delivers sharp picture quality.

Setting up the monitor was quick and easy, we were soon ready to start testing out all the great functions.

The Video Monitor

The picture and sound quality of the unit are excellent. The unit features a night vision mode, a built-in photo sensor detects a low level of ambient light and switches onto night vision automatically. Once in night vision, the screen then appears in black and white while the picture quality remains thanks to the high-intensity infra-red LEDs.

You can also turn off the video monitor but leave on the audio monitor if you wish to.

Talk Mode

This talk mode feature is one of my favourite things about this video monitor. You can press the button and talk to your baby. This feature is really useful if your baby just needs to hear a soothing voice, you don’t have to enter the room and disturb them. I think this feature would also be great for toddlers who won’t settle.

Touchless Thermometer 

I think the touchless thermometer really sets this video monitor apart from its rivals. There are two buttons, one button is for testing forehead temperature and the other is for testing the liquid temperature of things like milk or a bath. The device uses infra-red technology, it’s so easy to use and the results are clearly displayed.

Digital Pan and Tilt

Another feature of the monitor is the ability to pan and tilt the camera unit.  If your baby wriggles around their cot, as ours does you can move the camera to the position you need without having to disturb them.


The parent monitor also features an alarm that can be set for a 6,4 or 2 hour period.

Range and Portability

Once charged the monitor is fully portable and has a range of up to 300 metres and an out of range warning. I’ve found this a brilliant feature as I can get on with housework while baby sleeps. I can take it from room to room without worrying about losing signal.

What We Loved About The Motorola MBP27T Sense The Temperature Digital Video Monitor

  • The quality of the sound and picture on the monitor.
  • The two-way talkback feature.
  • The tilt and pan feature of the camera.

This particular Motorola MBP27T model has now been discontinued but you can find similar Motorola baby monitors at Amazon, Mothercare, John Lewis, and other good retailers.
