Bébétel is a new Swiss-made product designed for hotel guests to monitor their babies without the need for traditional listening devices which use radio waves and can go out of range or suffer interference. The unit is plugged into the standard hotel room telephone socket, and then programmed with a mobile, land line or pager number, which will ring if the baby cries. Parents can also dial in to the room via a PIN number at any time to check the child is still sleeping without waking them. Older children can also be taught to trigger a direct alarm to a parent's phone with any key on the unit and enter a two-way conversation without having to pick up a receiver. The child alarms also mean an extra source of revenue for operators via the telephone exchange and through possible hiring-out of the units.
