  • We love this monitor, it really gave us peace of mind when moving our baby to the crib. It didn’t have many false alarms (only when she would get stuck in the corner of the crib) Jul 18, 2019

  • This gave me piece of mind with my little guy. The video quality isn’t great though. Sometimes the alarm would go off in the middle of the night because the signal dropped. Jul 14, 2019

  • The picture wasn't clear, it's hard to position the camera at a good angle, the audio was staticky, and the pause button for the motion pad is on the camera so that moves when you push the button. Jul 14, 2019

  • Picture isn't the greatest in the dark. Temperature reading gives off a lot of light. It picks up almost every noise. For the price, the quality was higher than expected. No wi-fi needed was a perk. May 10, 2019

  • This monitor really is an all-in-one. The clarity of the video screen is great. Love the room temp on the camera. And the movement sensor gives a little extra piece of mind. Would highly recommend. May 07, 2019

  • Monitor and movement pad are a great combination. The montor has a good sized screen and allows you to zoom in. The movement pad alarm gives me piece of mind after transitioning baby to crib. Oct 23, 2018

  • I love this! It helps me as a mommy knowing if he doesn’t move it will signal an alarm to go off. It also has a camera so you can see your baby while he or she sleeps. Oct 17, 2018

  • Was not compatible with our foam mattress. We could only use the video monitor and it had a huge triangle in the middle of the screen because the pad wasn't detected. Aug 28, 2018

  • Screen is clear reacts as expected and have had no issues so far. Movement peice is a bit sensative but after some adjustments is much better. Aug 20, 2018

  • Love how crisp & clear the image is on the monitor along with the temperature reading on both the camera & the monitor. We havent used the movement pad yet bc our bassinet is incompatible but lookin Aug 15, 2018

  • Love that angelcare came out with a video monitor. Have used 3 of the angelcare monitors and this is my fave! Large clear screen, temp monitor and movement sensor. LOVE!! Jul 10, 2018

  • Works all around my house even to the outside. I love the fact it has a microphone. The only downfall is that the charge doesn’t last and the camera has a weird smell when it’s connected. May 30, 2018

  • Works great. Has good features to it especially room temperature. Quality could be a little better May 18, 2018

    Absolutely love this and wish I’d had it with my first. I am pretty anxious when I can’t see my baby and this monitor alleviates it. I don’t have to check on her constantly like the first time around. Apr 18, 2018

    Love this system! You have to take the time to learn it and customize it to your needs. It’s responsive to my baby and expandable to add more equipment. Definitely worth the investment Mar 29, 2018

    Absolutely love this monitor. Gives us such a piece of mind during naps and at night. The 20 second alarm after no movement is detected is fantastic. Mar 03, 2018

  • I can get a restful nights sleep with this. It makes me feel more comfortable. Dec 14, 2017

    • Tara T.
    • Centralia, Illinois

    You can’t pause it from the camera; must be turned off from video monitor. We like the wired Angelcare mat over the wireless, as you can turn it on and off at bedside. Did have a few false alarms Nov 27, 2017

  • This was fantastic. As we transitioned my daughter into the crib, it gave me ease of mind knowing that if anything happened, the alarm would go off. Oct 18, 2017

    I received this item for free from WeeSpring's Parent Panel! I absolutely love all its features! From the touch screen to the temperature detection, the breathing monitor! It's a must have!! Oct 04, 2017

  • Great monitor. So easy to set up! It gives peace of mind knowing your baby is safe with the movement pad. I love the temperature reading on the camera. The parent unit has a lot of great features too! Jun 30, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This beauty has everything we were looking for and more! The video clarity is awesome, the sensor pad is amazing and the night vision is impressive! Peace of mind = better sleep for all! Jun 15, 2017

    Overall a great monitor. It was easy to set up & came with everything needed. I did have difficulty figuring out how to pause/unpause the movement sensor at first though. Love the temperature display! Jun 08, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Great monitor! I got a chance to try this monitor as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. It was a little tricky to set up at first and didn't come with very clear instructions. My husband dod a bit o Jun 08, 2017

  • We purchased this product after we were unhappy with the Owlet. The monitor is excellent and we really like the pad- except it will set off a few false alarms which scare the daylights out of you! Jun 05, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    The initial setup was a little hard. Sensor pad kept going off. Loved the clear audio and video! Great 2 way communication and temperature display. Loved this monitor! Jun 04, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This camera is very clean and modern and has excellent video clarity and night vision however I found the instructions to be lacking and the unit could be more user friendly. May 31, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This angelcare monitor helps to provide peace of mind. It has so many great and reliable features. I love how portable it is. May 30, 2017

    Love the sleek design and clever magnetic stand/hanging options. The video is very clear and the audio is crisp. We found the sensor pad difficult to work with, but really like the monitor itself. May 26, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This monitor is the best I have ever had! The setup is so easy and the screen is so clear and the audio is so crisp. I definitely recommend this product to any mom looking for peace of mind! May 26, 2017

  • I love that it alerts for movements and is a video monitor. The movement detector provides peace of mind at night and the video monitor provides me with freedom in the day time. May 26, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    The wireless movement sensor pad, gives you a peace of mind. The alarm will sound if there is no movement after 20 seconds. The touchscreen monitor is a bonus and easy to use. I highly recommend this! May 24, 2017

    Very simple to set up. Works wonderfully for my daughter with terrible reflux. Now I don't have to worry about her choking in her sleep. I couldnt ask for more from this product. May 24, 2017

    Great monitor clarity. Can read room temperature via the parent unit. The touchscreen wasn't as sensitive as I would like. Confusing set up. Didn't like having to "pause" to take baby out May 24, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I absolutely love this product! The movement sensor works great. Picture quality is better than other's I’ve seen. I also love that it has night vision! Love the temp feature! What a great product!!! May 22, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Picture quality is better than other's I’ve seen. The movement sensor works great. I have friends who've tried other movementpads with false alarms. We've not had that problem. Love the temp feature! May 21, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I really enjoyed the parent talk back feature, and the room temperature display. I loved that you can adjust everything including sound and the temperature setting on the mobile monitor. May 20, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This monitor was simple to set up and the motion sensing technology gives peace of mind. I love the quality of the image. The temperature display on the camera is very bright though. May 19, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I like this monitor for its picture quality and temperature indicator, but the sensor pad features were clunky and I wish there was a way to turn the alarm off on the camera/baby unit. May 17, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Excellent picture and sound quality, easy to set up, and reliable! Definitely makes life with 4 little boys easier when baby can nap safely in his own room! Love this product! May 12, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Good monitor for those who want to track baby's breathing/movement. I appreciate the high quality camera and range, but didn't like the movement sensor which you have to pause when taking baby out. May 07, 2017
