I've looked for intercoms or 2-way radios no luck.

OK, I'll try to use the right words, ha ha. The monitor is the end in his room. And the receiver would be the one you have. The monitor picks up all noises in the room, yes. You would be able to hear any noise in the room he's in. He would only be able to hear what noises are around you if you have the button pushed on the receiver, talking to him. I'm not sure that would be helpful to you if he is on the move. Also there is a distance limitation. It varies by manufacturer.

We use the baby monitor with video in my mom's room at night and when she naps in the day because she gets out of bed to go to the bathroom and sometimes needs help getting back in bed properly. I save myself running up and downstairs during the day checking on her. Also, I can hear her when she calls out to me. When she's up and with me, I don't have to use it.

We use FRS radios when we camp and travel and they are handy to have. Occasionally, there will be some cross-talk, but not very often. I think they even have voice operated ones that you don't have to press a button to use. That might be what you meant by walkie-talkies.

@txcamper- so if the tv is on in the room with the monitor would the person in other room hear the tv, thus wanting to mute making communication harder. trying to figure out if noise in both areas would come across and make the baby monitor less helpful in communication? hope i explained this right but we caregive back and forth so noises of tv, dishes washing, etc could be disruptive to the other? brain slow let me know if i need to clarify better. thank you!

With the two way baby monitors, you can always hear them (if the monitor is turned on), but you have to press a button for them to hear you.

im looking into this myself. did anyone find anything? our walkie talkies make horrible channel crossing noises. was looking into the 2 way baby monitors and realized that might mean him always hearing me. desperately need a way to communicate with each other without yelling or having to run back and forth.

Walkie talkies with a head set - if you can find it - will let you have hands free activities while you still talk with her. A baby monitor might give you 1-way communication or enable you to monitor HER while you're in the garden or garage..

By the way - isn't it nice to have such comfort asking a question like this and NOT be thought goofy? LOL ;)

I don't know why a 2-way radio wouldn't work. We have a set of FRS radio walkie talkies that work fine on the property here. That's how I talk to my husband when he has to go under the house to do some dumb thing. They're small, but she'd have to be able to hold down the talk button.
