Baby monitors

As convenient as baby monitors can be, they can also be all the more dangerous for (our) vulnerable babies.

Most of the baby monitors only send a signal when a noise exceeds a certain sound level. However, there are now also a few selected manufacturers whose devices operate on the critical DECT technology, emitting wireless radiation with 100 pulses per second.

Baby monitors without battery mode that must be plugged into an outlet also emit alternating electrical and magnetic fields, which is why these devices should be placed ca. 1 meter or 3 feet away from the bed, and the power cord should not run alongside the bed.


As recommended by most manufacturers, the easiest and most important thing to remember is to keep at least 1 meter (better 2-3 meters/6-10 feet) distance to the baby monitor.

In addition, power cords and power supply units should be placed as far away as possible from a child's bed. This normally does not impair the functionality of the baby monitor.

Only battery-operated baby monitors should be used in order to avoid exposure to ELF electromagnetic fields. Further information and test results can be found on the Internet at

The following companies offer products protecting against ELF or wireless radiation:
