  • Awesome video baby monitor! It has infrared night vision that kicks on automatically whenever the light dims enough. Love that this video camera does not connect to wifi so hacking is not possible. Sep 16, 2019

    I ended up giving this monitor to be used at my mother in laws. The range was not enough to reach the other side of 2000 square foot ranch. I would wake up to find it out of range. Feb 11, 2019

  • This worked well for a few months but then the screen got pixelated and the camera stopped rotating. Nov 08, 2018

    Perfect for the price. You can sync multiple cameras to the same monitor for multiple kids, which is great. And pretty durable for when it inevitably gets pulled off the shelf by little hands! Sep 01, 2018

    Had this for our first kid, but when baby 2 came along this wouldn’t toggle b/t 2 cameras. Ended up buying a new system. The antenna broke after a year’s use. Sometimes wouldn’t pickup on 2nd story. Aug 10, 2018

  • Great picture quality and features but won't charge after only 6 months, happened with 2 different models. Feb 25, 2018

  • I love this monitor, however the alarm can be loud if your camera isn't on and you connect the monitor. Camera is very limited in motion. Good value though. Jan 21, 2018

  • I purchased this for my firstborn. It helped me keep an eye on my daughter while doing house chores and errands. It was a life changer not to have to be in one room at all times. Jan 03, 2018

  • For the price it doesn’t get any better than this. It has great range, a clear picture, and is easy to set up and use. It is fool proof! Oct 18, 2017

    This monitor is great! Easy to use and the price point was just right. I've never had a issues with it. Aug 26, 2017

  • I have mixed feelings over this monitor. Generally a great monitor with minimal interference problems. After a year of use, the screen brightness stays so high that you can barely see DS on screen. Jun 27, 2017

  • Works great! Wonderful affordable option with great features. Awesome bang for the buck. Picture and sound are clear. Easy to setup and install. Jan 23, 2017

  • This monitor is a great simple option. I love that it doesn't connect to wifi, making it a little more secure. Dec 15, 2016

    Weird, but this monitor totally messed up our internet. Had a lot of random problems with it. Oct 19, 2016

  • This camera has a lot of functions and options that you didn't even know you needed. Good picture and sound, good range. With a 2nd camera, you can split-screen and spy on two kids at once! Apr 19, 2016

  • Range isn't all that good. It does have good picture on monitor. Have seen better products. Jan 18, 2016

  • It has a nice size screen,so you can monitor your baby closely. Dec 15, 2015

  • Great monitor to have! We've had no issues and are really happy with this purchase. Apr 07, 2015

    I would not recommend this monitor and wish we had spent more on a higher quality monitor. The sound doesn't work at all and the monitor does not last long at all without having to be recharged. Feb 19, 2015

  • Did not work when on a different floor from the baby. Feb 08, 2015

    It's better than just ok, especially for the money, but not super. The signal goes out momentarily for me, however the VOX function works really well. Dec 18, 2014

    works fine for the price point. cons: it does interfere with and slow down our wifi. also if your house is really huge, it might lose signal if you're too far. and i hate that the clip part rattles Dec 07, 2014

    This was great until my baby grew to HeMan strengths and ripped it apart (we had installed one along his crib rail). Admittedly this is our fault, and not the product. Love the Add On cams too. Nov 16, 2014

    It's a great monitor and very easy to set up. It would be perfect but it really affects the wifi. Sep 29, 2014

  • We have two cameras and the receiver. There are times when wifi interferes but we're out in the rural areas so it's fine! In a more urban area, wifi signals could interfere with the signal... Sep 28, 2014

    We have this and actually love it. I've dropped it a dozen times and it still works fine. Great for the price. Aug 29, 2014

  • It does the job without all the extra features and a great price. I get reception just fine when in the basement and baby is on second floor. I only wish it had an app or something for the phone. Aug 23, 2014

    We love this, clear pic. But the battery wears down eventually and doesn't stay charged Aug 21, 2014

    Such a great value. I don’t need an HD stream of my child — I just want to know if he’s upset. Aug 04, 2014

  • Great monitor. The image quality is good (I can see my daughter breathing!) in light or dark conditions. The receiver seems to need charging frequently though. Jul 29, 2014

    No frills video monitor. Great value. Jul 24, 2014

  • Love that it doesn't connect to the Wifi. Works great! Jul 14, 2014

    • Elana P.
    • United States of America

    Simple set-up and great functionality—and reasonably priced compared to other brands. Works great for our space. Only downside is it interferes with our wifi a bit...but not a dealbreaker. Jun 21, 2014

  • It does the basics. Picture quality is ok, but sometimes the signal interferes with my wifi. Apr 25, 2014
