DECT monitors are very bad news to be around babies.  DECT technology pulses at full power, all of the time, even when not in use, and I believe will cause a lot of problems with babies.  Also there is the Angel-Lite series of monitors that is like the sensor pad one that puts an EMF emitting pad under the mattress which is further amplified by the "Coils" in the pad.

All very very bad ideas!  I wish we had kept our old 49Mhz monitor.. We now use a 900Mhz one, kept on the other side of the room, and only use it at best, once every week or two.
