    Good in the daytime

    Just bought this today for our 4&1 yr olds room and soon to be newborns room. When i first set it up i loved the picture. Fast forward to bed time and the infrared vision is HORRIBLE ! You can't see anything ! Needless to say we will be returning it for a different system . If you dont need the camera for the infrared then this is a very nice system to use. The sound is clear and the picture is very nice. But I also didnt like how there is a limited range to turn the camera when hanging it on the wall . the only way i would be able to hang it and cover the space i needed would be to have the picture upside down .

    I would give it no stars if I could. I really wanted to love it but ended up VERY devastated instead. We got this while I was pregnant and when I first tested it, it seemed fine at first but than after really using it I realized more little things was off. The buttons are hard to push at times. The night vision it claims it has is HORRIBLE. I can’t see my kids at all, the only way I can is to have it right beside their faces, and it dies really fast so i’m constantly having to charge it. Sadly it’s not worth the price, the only thing nice about it is the presentation. Because I had it too long I wasn’t able to return is so this thing was just a waste of money for me.

    I bought this product a few months ago & so far it has worked great for us. Pros- I like the quality of the video, not exactly a 10 but a 9 (especially in the dark). The sound is exceptional, even if she mumbles I can hear it perfectly. The price was very decent, for 2 cameras. I have to constantly move the angles of the cameras, but I'm used to it (not lazy) so it's not really an issue. Plus they can adjust in every way i need. Cons, i guess you can say, is the battery life. It's not the best, I have to constantly charge it. But other than that it's a pretty good set. In the picture I only put 1 camera, but of course there are 2.

    My wife and I recently purchased this product after returning our Arlo baby monitor. We found ourselves far less paranoid with our Project Nursery system-- as it doesn't require a wifi connection; the monitor speaks directly to the camera. There was basically no setup required, and was ready to use straight out of the box. We use the second camera to check on the dogs, it works great! My only small negative concern is in order to switch between camera 1 & 2 you need to go through the menu system. Having some form of toggle button directly on the monitor would have been more convenient. Fantastic product however, highly recommended!

    Dual cameras help with seeing all sides of the room. Zoom function is fairly lacking with only one variable; in or out. 2 way sound works effectively. Battery in portable monitor lasted about 5 hours which means you will probably need to keep it plugged in. Overall it does all the things I need it to. Motion sensor, sound and video communication. I have not tested the range on it and plan on doing that soon. I would have rated this higher if the price was a little lower. Honestly I expected more for $160 after taxes.

    The video baby monitor is ok, definitely not the best. After trying another brand to replace our old monitor, we settled with this monitor. The sound is low, you need to be next to the monitor to hear sound in your child’s room. The image is ok. We had to reposition the camera several times to get a semi-clear image. The thermometer feature is NOT accurate. We didn’t have many options and the monitor we wanted was only available at one Best Buy location and they wouldn’t ship to us.

    The longer I've had this system the more disappointed I am. I would have purchased another system if I'd have known the following: the battery life on the monitor is an hour tops, the charging cord has to sit perfectly in order to charge and when you select the lullabies to play, it is so loud on the monitor that you can no longer hear the baby. I have to wait for baby to fall asleep before I fall asleep because I have to turn the music off or I won't hear her cry overnight.

    Of all the baby monitors I researched, this was the best one for the price. I was able to purchase mine for $50 off but even at full price, it’s still a great deal. Two cameras, both with night vision and incoming and outgoing audio. I don’t really have use for the outgoing audio from the monitor but it’s a cool feature to have. The battery life of the monitor is surprisingly good when it’s at a full charge. 5/5

    I got this as a baby shower gift,when we were expecting our twins. This parent unit just shuts off on its own for no reason. My babies are not even 3 months old and the thing will be plugged in by my bed charging and will just cut off. So if I’m sleeping I won’t hear my babies cry. I called the project nursery customer service and they were rude and not helpful.

    This system is just ok. Around the same quality of something you would find at a discount store. I wish you could move the cameras remotely just a little. The power button is terrible to turn on, you have to push in extremely hard. I thought mine was faulty so I exchanged it and the new one has the same issue. Also wish it came with a different power adapter. Sticks out from the wall like 2 inches.

    Can't hear my baby

    It has a decent video quality and a good price. Was dissapointed that the camera rotates only manually but I could live with that. The biggest problem with this monitor is even with the volume all the way up I had to keep the base literally next to my ear to hear if my baby is crying. With my old monitor from Motorola I could even hear my baby's breathing from across the room.

    We had this for maybe a month-and-a-half when the monitor just stopped working. We kept it up on our bed post, so no water was accidentally spilled on it, nor was it kept in an area accessible to our kids with food or something. It. Just. Merely. Stopped. Working. Best buy wouldn't return it as it was outside the return period. Wasted $160 for nothing.

    the cameras worked for about 6 months then lines started to appear on the monitor screen. The cords that connected the nursery camera would ALWAYS come loose even when we gave it slack causing the picture to completely go out. the whole device stopped working around 9 months after purchase..,

    Bought to help keep track of children on the other end of the house at night (medical issue). Says was supposed to have spilt screen but does not. Sucks up a lot of WiFi bandwidth. Great with the one camera not so much for the two and now 30 days later starting to have connection problems and power issues.

    VERY POOR NIGHT VISION

    Night vision on camera per manual adjusts automatically, very poor, all you can see is the glow of their eyes. Another issue is the music plays both from cameras and monitor, so, you're hearing the music play on both ends which makes it difficult to hear baby sounds coming from room.

    Purchased tonight and will be returning first thing in the a.m. The day time (color) view is fantastic, the night vision doesn't allow you to see anything. You can't make out the baby in the crib. Very frustrated and will be returning the set tomorrow a.m.

    There are so many monitors to choose from but I am glad I chose this one! I have been searching for a monitor with a long battery life and could not be happier with my purchase! The two cameras cover the entire nursery and the picture itself is very clear. Definitely a must have for new parents!

    We purchased this camera system when we moved our newborn baby from our room into his nursery. It came with two cameras which worked out great! One for right over his crib, and the other in the corner to get a full room view. Video and sound quality are very good!
