Multi-room baby monitors are great for families with more than one child. It can be extremely difficult to keep an eye on two children, especially when each one is in his own room, or one is napping and one is playing, and you need to cook dinner. Baby monitors that offer at least two cameras will help you keep track of two rooms at the same time, while you are cooking, cleaning or having some personal well deserved time!
You’ll get an LCD screen with the capabilities of viewing each room that is connected to the monitoring system. Some systems even allow you to connect up to four cameras on one system. They work in unison with each other and allow you the ultimate monitoring experience to ensure your children’s safety at all times from any room in your home. Most video baby monitors come with one camera then offer the option of purchasing separate cameras that you can hook up to work in unison with the system, however some come with multiple cameras. Below we feature the best video baby monitors for two rooms (i.e. those that have the potential to add more cameras).

VTech Safe and Sound
The VTech Safe and Sound monitor offers a package with two cameras which is perfect for families that need a monitoring system for two or more rooms.

This system offers split-screen capability so you can view both rooms at the same time or switch from one to the other. Audio and video signals are both transmitted and offer you alerts when any movements or sounds are detected on either camera.
There are also temperature sensors on each camera to alert you to changes in the room temperature to ensure that your baby will always be in a comfortable room to sleep and rest. Five lullabies will play via remote form the parent unit, plus from the same unit, you can zoom and pan the camera for clearer views of each room you’re monitoring.

Final thoughts on two-room capability
As you can see from this post, there are many benefits to purchasing a video monitor capable of looking at more than 1 room at a time. This is especially true for families who are expecting to have children close together or even twins or triplets! Outside of just keeping a watchful eye on your own children there are several other things you could monitor as well. You could keep an eye on your family pets, your children’s caretakers or any room in your home for any other reason.
