    Very good, but it needs longer battery life

    This product works very well; I use it to monitor my elderly mother. I have one camera in her bedroom and one by her bathroom. I can pan and tilt the camera to follow her around without disturbing her. Our condo is a 2BR flat, and I have no range problems.The only problem is that the screen often runs out of batteries if mother goes to the toilet too many times in one night. It definitely must be recharged daily. BTW, I purchased a second wide-angle lens from the manufacturer; the lens makes the picture a little clearer, as well as it makes monitoring an entire room easier. P.S. The zoom feature is a digital zoom, not a real zoom, so the resolution of the picture is worse when you zoom in. Not much of a feature.

    As the summary suggests, the image quality is poor, and looks nothing like the advertisement on the packaging; more like a half received channel on an old UHF/VHF dial TV (how many people are going to understand what that means?!). Think pixelated, snowy and grainy. Also, the battery life on the parent unit is subpar IMO, few hours at most. So if you forget to plug it back in your hosed. Distance reception is good though. Just depends on what your priorities are and what you expect for a $200 monitor.

    We bought this monitor so we could have a camera in our Daughters nursery, and one pointed at her crib in our bedroom. Both cameras were easy to mount and have a good picture day and night. Also, being able to move the cameras and play music, voice or calming sound effects is a huge plus. Our house is 2 levels with a detached garage and the monitor works clearly in all areas. I have no complaints about this product.

    New grandkids staying at our house meant we needed one of these to put the new parents at ease while the little one stayed overnight with us. I’m sure we were just lucky that our kids survived without “video surveillance” being conducted. Camera and monitor worked as expected and did not take any expertise either. We can recommend this camera but we now “need” a sleep sensor ?

    Overall, this is an excellent product. It didn’t take long to set it up - would be nice if the cameras could be used without being plugged in the charge (outlet). However, it didn’t make any problems. The parent-unit menu/buttons is quite simple and easy to use. We liked that the cameras include the temperature sensors. Pretty good quality night vision, two-way communication (speaking to a baby) was useful as well.

    First off I want to mention I use to have the summer infant brand but it was cheaply made that battery goes bad fast & drop it few times only the plastic that protects the front screen pop off . I had such a bad experience hoping this 1 well fulfilled the needs of a baby monitor & yes it did but 1 think I dislike about the is the video quality other than that I can't complain! So far so go for my 1st month having it!

    My 4 month old and 3 year old share a room and this makes it very easy to monitor both. The picture is much better quality than I had expected. I really like the two-way talking and the ability to play music. The ability to move the camera around from the main device makes it very easy to be able to view multiple angles of the room.

    This video baby monitor has been wonderful for me. Instead of a baby, I have a 100 year old mother to monitor. I can hear if she calls and see if she gets out of bed and moves around in her room. I feel confident knowing I can hear and see my mother day or night. Beautiful day color. Night is blurred but I can tell where she is.

    We bought this for the nursery. The baby has not arrived yet, but we set it up and played around with it. It seems like it works great! We live out in the country and we like the feature of the antenna to be out in the yard and we can still watch the baby. We just heard feedback from a friend who purchased the same one and loves it!

    Our last monitor lasted 2 years. During that time, it routinely lost the signal from the camera. This model has a better track record so far. At this point we have only set up one of the 2 cameras but the second baby is due in a couple of weeks so we will have to set up the second then.

    This is a great camera system. I didn’t know if we really needed 2 cameras, but what we do is use the cameras in 2 different rooms. We also have a camper at the lake so we just take 1 camera to the lake and take the head unit with us.

    Love the distance that this monitor offers and the fact that it has two cameras so you can put in different rooms without having to move it. The screen is bigger and clearer than one I've had before.

    Good assortment of features including split-screen and sound-sensitive camera switching. Poor quality picture and you have to get th extended lens attachment if you want to see anything more than half the kid's bed.

    We did a ton of research on this product and it has exceeded all expectations. This is my first child, so we were very cautious on what monitor we purchased. Works fantastic!!

    Great Monitor for the price! Clear picture and many different functions! Only complaints are short battery life and it will not work with cameras of the same brand from previous model!

    I just purchased this camera. I have been looking for a monitor and settled on this one and am glad I did. It was easy to set up, has good picture and sound quality, and seems to be made with good materials.

    Bought this monitor for my elderly mothers home. It works great. Easy to set up. Only complaint is power cord needs to be a little longer for the cameras.

    We found this monitor to be awesome because our grandchild moves around in the crib and we can adjust the view to observe him. Plays music. Able to talk to baby. Viewer is nice size too.

    Good picture and sound when both camera and monitor are nearby. But lose contact with each other at about 10% of the claimed range of 1000 feet or there are any walls in between.
