- The UK’s first Smart Baby Monitor is available with both 2.8” and 5” colour video screen on the BT Shop
- The BT Smart Baby Monitor features Alexa or Google Assistant allowing customers to play a lullaby or report back on the temperature of the baby’s room from anywhere simply by using their voice

BT has announced the launch of the UK’s first voice-controlled Smart Baby Monitor, connecting with both Alexa and Google Assistant.
BT’s first ever Smart Baby Monitor, which is available on the BT Shop, is the latest in a new range of BT Smart Home products and is part of BT’s commitment to keep customers connected to the things that matter most, in and out of the home.
Available in both a 2.8” and 5” colour video screen, the BT Smart Baby Monitor enables parents to ask Alexa or Google Assistant to play a lullaby, report back on the temperature of the baby’s room and turn motion detection on and off.
Customers can watch live HD video streaming, take photos and record footage direct from the camera to their smartphone – giving them peace of mind and a chance to share those special moments with friends and family. Customers can also use the two way talk back to be part of the bedtime routine when away from the home.
BT’s Smart Video Monitor is the latest evolution of BT’s baby monitor range, which includes the Video Baby Monitor 6000 - the UK’s top selling baby monitor.
New research* from BT has shown that 32% of parents in the UK don’t get back in time for their children’s bedtime during the week, and 80% of parents would like to see their baby on their smartphone when they are away from home.
Additional features include night vision, digital zoom and a remote motorised pan, allowing users to experience a clear view of their children when checking in.
Bruce Cuthbert, Director of BT Connected Devices, said: “Our customers want to feel connected to their children, whether they’re in another room, at the office or on the way home. Our new BT Smart Baby Monitor is the UK’s first voice-controlled baby monitor with Alexa and Google Assistant, making keeping an eye and ear on your children even easier. We want BT’s smart devices to give our customers the best connections and experiences – and our evolving range of baby monitors give parents that peace of mind.”
