Graco's Secure Coverage Digital Monitor is a nice and simple baby monitor.  I appreciate how the parent units light up when the child unit detects a noise.  That way, I don't have to constantly press the monitor against my ears to check if there is a slightest sound coming from Baby Hsu.  There is also a vibration alert that may be turned on or off to detect noise.  I think this option is great when you're having a party or when you're in a place that's quite rowdy.  I like how it is a compact size so that I may take it on the go when I bring Baby Hsu to grandparent's or a friend's house.  When I first paired the parent units to the child unit, I noticed static.  But, after changing a few channels, the static was less obvious.  The monitor picks up every single noise in the room and even noise that may be heard from within the room.  I had placed the child unit in my in-law's guest room where Baby Hsu was sleeping, and the unit picked up noise that was coming from the adjacent room where the adults were loudly play mahjong.  An added convenience is the belt clip that is attached to the parent unit, which I can clip to my pants and roam around the house.     

When I put Baby Hsu to sleep in his crib, I feel at ease with Graco's Secure Coverage Digital Monitor so that I may be aware of any slightest whimpers that Baby Hsu makes (HSUper Parents-Approved)!
