    This monitor was really easy to set up and use. I love that the buttons light up so if it is already dark you don't have to turn on a light. I love that there are two cameras so you can see the whole Aug 12, 2019

  • This has been very functional and great. If it had a movement sensor it would be perfect Jul 25, 2019

    EH - its OK. The screen is huge but the picture quality is not great. I like the sound sensor. The battery life is OK so far and the range is good. Easy to set up. Jul 21, 2018

  • I love the 2 way talk on and that you can play soothing sounds through it! The picture is very clear to! I would highly recommend Jun 01, 2018

  • This is THE BEST!! Before we had this I got up atleast 5 times to just check on her a night, this did not include feeding times. Now I can check on her whenever I need to! May 12, 2018

  • Great monitor! Picks up any noise that happens even near our babies nursery. Apr 04, 2018

  • We use this every night! No complaints at all! Feb 22, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    I like this video monitor. It has two cameras and a mic. weeSpring Parent Panel sent me this amazing monitor as a gift. The out-of-the-box set up was very easy. The directions were straight forward. Dec 08, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Absolutely love this monitor! It has a large screen, can zoom in, and has a great picture! Love that it has a talk back feature and you can play music on it too. Edit: I'm finding battery dies quick Aug 31, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Update: used for 3 months and now one camera does not work and the parent monitor is slowly dying. For the price, I would expect better quality and for it to last longer. I would not recommend. Aug 28, 2017

  • We went through a ton of different monitors trying to find one that would make it across our house, work reliably without disconnection, and have good video quality. This was the only one we kept. Aug 13, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I received this as a parent panel item. It has a great screen and wide angle. However, I wish it could pan, move when zoomed in, and had better night vision. It would be a great play room monitor! Jul 19, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I really like this monitor. I like that it comes with 2 cameras and both can be used on a split screen of the parent unit. The sound-activated screen is my favorite part! The screen is large and clear Jul 18, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This monitor is awesome, easy set up! Picture isn't the clearest but it's ok, I just need to see my son! The zoom is great and I love how I can play lullabies & talk to baby! Jul 14, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Love this monitor! Huge screen, two cameras, a temp display, a two was talk feature and more! Only thing we weren't thrilled about was quality of night-vision but still love it! Jul 12, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    It has good video quality and a nice zoom feature. The two way communication and lullabies were handy. Only major concern is you cannot remotely pan or tilt the camera so it needs be near the ceiling. Jul 10, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This monitor with 2 cameras meets our price and needs! We love being able to easily take it with us with when traveling, especially with the temp display. Very easy to use! Jul 09, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    We love this monitor! It was easy to set up and the camera was simple to mount. The zoom feature is great when I want to get a closer look and the wide angle lens is perfect for my sons room. Jul 06, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I love the multiple cameras and the ability to see them together or separately on the parent screen. The talk back feature was great for my older kids and the music was great for the baby. Jul 01, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Easy to operate, love having 2 monitors for separate rooms, with the option to switch or split on the screen. Also love that I can see my son when he's napping in the darkened room. Great monitor! Jun 23, 2017

    This monitor was so easy to setup and even easier to use. I love the lullaby and talk back features, I feel like these features really set this monitor apart from its competitors - this gives you the Jun 23, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    The two-way intercom is probably my favorite feature, that and the sound activated screen feature, which turns the monitor screen off until sound is detected and it turns on. Jun 23, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Very easy setup. Nice being able to peek in on baby without having to ninja crawl in and risk disturbing him. Good picture quality too...would recommend to other parents for sure Jun 23, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Great monitor - comes with wall mounts which is super nice! Also like that there are two cameras that aren't connected to wifi. They have great zoom capabilities & the parent monitor is easy to use! Jun 23, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This monitor includes many great features- large screen, two cameras, talkback, lullabies, zoom, and room temp. However, picture can be grainy and you can't pan around room. Jun 23, 2017

    I love the features, the two cameras, NOT being connected to wifi and just about everything! Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this monitor! Jun 22, 2017

    Not great. Picture was grainy. You can not control the camera angle/view with the parent unit. You can zoom in and out using the parent unit. Don't like having to go into baby's room to adjust camera. Jun 22, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Easy to setup. Cameras are very sensitive to sound, need to reduce sensistivity. Green LED light needs to be covered at night. Overall really loved screen resolution and zoom! Jun 21, 2017

    Excellent video quality and large screen on the parent unit. I love the talk back feature and the zoom in function. Jun 21, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I love the zoom feature and the picture quality (at night); however, I wish the monitor had a pan/tilt option to go with the zoom. Jun 20, 2017

    This is an amazing monitor - love the wide angle lens and 2 cameras. It has a huge LCD display. My only complaint is I wish it had a clearer picture - it's fairly grainy. Still a great monitor though! Jun 20, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Excellent quality and so easy to use but camera doesn't rotate side to side. I found myself wanting that more than the zoom feature. Jun 20, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    We loved this monitor...mostly. My favorite feature was the picture quality, whether it was dark or light in the room I could see my LO clear as day. The multiple cameras and angles are awesome too! Jun 20, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    This monitor was easy to setup & use. I love that it came with two cameras so my baby can't hide from them. The lullabies and white noise play right from the cameras which is very helpful! We love it! Jun 19, 2017

    If the temperature in the baby's room gets outside a range I have chosen, I can set an alert. I can block out snoring and quiet sounds if desired. For privacy, it is NOT connected to the internet. Jun 19, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I absolutely love this baby monitor! Two cameras you can switch between and very user friendly! Jun 18, 2017

  • (what's this?)

  • (what's this?)

    Great monitor, good zoom and sound/video quality. Lots of great functions. Decent battery life. Comes with easy walk mounts. Recommend to any family. Jun 17, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    I like that it is 1 monitor for 2 cameras,the view switch capabilities,music,talk,etc. I dont like that the monitors constantly unlink from viewer & i have to press the power button on the camera. Jun 15, 2017

  • (what's this?)

    Overall, I would definitely recommend this video monitor. The zoom feature and the dual camera/one parent unit especially make this a great video monitor, in my opinion. Jun 15, 2017
