  • didn't work from day 1, didn't get anywhere with customer service, ended up getting an Owlet camera. Mar 17, 2021

  • Needs to be placed pretty high in order to get full angle of baby in crib(like 6ft up). Has to be plugged in for all night use. Only portable for short term use during day. Recommend double camera opt Mar 07, 2021

  • I have the duel camera one. Easy to go between both cameras or have split screen. Good clarity and sound. The power cord on one of the died but customer service was great and I had a mew one in 3 days Jan 04, 2021

  • Gives clear enough picture. Sometimes turns off unexpectedly. Had to purchase a stand to place on wall. Range is just ok. Quit working at 1 year. Dec 23, 2020

    I have this for both my kids room! It’s great I can talk though it, it warns me for the room temp and when it’s dying. Compared to the summer infant monitor, the night vision isn’t as great though. Dec 14, 2020

  • Love the size and clarity on this screen as well as the fact that it moves in different angles. I only have one camera right now, but I also like the fact that it can be split screen. Dec 02, 2020

  • This is the 3rd monitor we’ve owned in 6 years and I love it. Big screen, good sound quality, decent battery life. I have the one with 2 cameras—one for each kid’s room! May 30, 2020

    Great video quality and sound! Also has night vision. Had an issue with monitor and Motorola was very helpful and sent a replaced monitor. Great brand May 06, 2020

  • I have the one with two cameras, works very well. Super clear image, long cords for both cameras and monitor. You can talk through it. Gets pretty loud. Adjusts easy. Music on it is way too loud. May 01, 2020

  • Gave me my sanity and peace of mind back. Love the sleep diary it creates every night that summarizes the quality of sleep that night. Feb 06, 2020

  • Baby got a hold of this one and dropped it. It will only work if it is plugged in... Other than that it is a great monitor with a good picture. Wish I could get it to work remotely again... Feb 03, 2020

  • Would not recommend. The cameras crash and won’t charge after a few months of use. Jan 19, 2020

    Good camera, like the night view, you can easily see everything. Works well plugged in, but battery for camera does not last long. Have had for 5months and it can act a little glitchy when turning on Jan 07, 2020

    This camera worked really well for us. It also allows you to add extra cameras so you can monitor multiple locations or angles. The articulation is good and image quality is nice enough. Jan 07, 2020

  • The picture is good and the camera has great movement. There is optional calming sounds, two way communication and tells you the temp in the room. A lot more functions than I originally thought! Oct 22, 2019

    Best monitor! The image is very clear, even in night mode. The sound is excellent. Range is excellent. Very happy with the monitor system. Oct 09, 2019

  • Great panning abilities, good quality night vision as well as day vision, built in sound machine, and overall convenience! Very happy with the quality and features of this monitor! Sep 18, 2019

  • Only complaint is that the battery doesn’t last long Sep 12, 2019

  • We love this baby monitor! It works great and we can always see what our little is doing in her room. Aug 28, 2019

  • Works good. We have it connected to two cameras which is a nice feature. Monitor already showing signs of failing on us after one year but it's lasted longer than our last monitor so that's a plus. Jul 28, 2019

  • Large screen with good video quality. The downside is that the monitor does not always work. It often loses signal and sets off a very loud beeping to alert you. I wish they sold replacement monitors Jul 26, 2019

  • Great picture quality! Jul 10, 2019

  • Easy to use, large screen for parents with clear video quality. The battery life is still holding strong after 16 months of use. Highly recommend! Jul 05, 2019

  • This monitor works great. It has a large screen that can be adjusted in angle. Voice/microphone works good too. Easy to manage and learn the monitor. Jun 25, 2019

  • When it works it’s great butcwe has to have the monitor replaced once within the first year and two cameras within two years. We have to restart it weekly bc the sound randomly turns off. Apr 20, 2019

    We really like this monitor. Our favorite features are the large screen, adjustable brightness, and ability to turn off the camera and only use the sound monitor. The white noise isnt the best. Apr 19, 2019

  • The temperature gage is SO OFF. Like 7-10 degrees off every single night. Which before I noticed and purchase 2 other temperature gages I was under dressing my baby! Ah Mar 28, 2019

  • Once we got to using this monitor it wouldn't maintain signal between the camera and the monitor even when we were in the same room. We promptly returned. Feb 05, 2019

  • i love it to watch both my kids (u can add up to 4 cameras) but the monitor does shut off randomly (when not plugged in and fully charged) ! Motorola did send me a new one , Jan 29, 2019

  • Been using this daily for 17 months and the only issue I have is sometimes it takes about 30 seconds to connect. I like the large screen and the quality is good. Jan 28, 2019

  • We’ve had so many problems with our camera randomly unpairing. When it’s actually paired we run into the issue where the connectivity is poor and the screen will turn green. Jan 13, 2019

  • Started out pretty good. But the picture is always dark and now it turns off completely on it's own. The charger does not stay in so it's never fully charged. Jan 07, 2019

    • PLAINFIELD, Alabama

    Great option until the video monitor started to randomly shut off even when the monitor was fully charged. CS was great and replaced the monitor for us but scary that after a few uses it already broke Dec 27, 2018

  • This is a great monitor if you have the money to replace it every 14 months or so. The video is clear, sound great, all the bells and whistles are lovely, but Motorola doesn't stand behind the quality Nov 12, 2018

  • Monitor is perfect and so detailed I can see my baby's chest rise and fall as he breathes. Oct 16, 2018

  • This is a good monitor and a great value. We like the talk-back feature, day/night vision, ability to adjust the camera remotely and the fact that it tells us the temperature in the nursery. Oct 11, 2018

  • Great monitor! My favorite feature is that the buttons are not touch screen but can physically be pushed down (so I know what I'm pressing!) Would love if it told the date/time of day Oct 09, 2018

  • We love that you can turn it on and see baby whenever you want, as opposed to some monitors that will ONLY show u when they detect motion/sound. Very clear image, and LOVE that it came with 2 cameras Sep 16, 2018

  • The plug doesn’t fit right so both the camera and monitor go dead then the monitor beeps at you. This has woken me up more than the baby. Working with Motorola has been a total nightmare. Aug 27, 2018

    • Tina F.
    • Harrisburg , Pennsylvania

    I love this so much. It's easy to see the baby and tell what they are doing. It's also great to be able to move the camera and talk back to the child. Jul 24, 2018

  • I love the option to watch on the screen or through your phone! Jul 03, 2018

  • So far we love this monitor. We have it mounted on the headboard of the crib. It can be moved so we can follow her if she repositions herself. Has good picture. Temperature is a few degrees high. Jun 21, 2018
