- "Our first one started having a constant fuzzy sound after about a year of continuous use and then the night vision got pretty bad." in 10 reviews
So, out comes the credit card and I get the best one. And, wow. Just... wow.
I stuck it up on the wall in their room in about 1 minute. Walked into the other room with the monitor, turned it on... that was it. 100% configured.
On the screen, I can control the camera, moving it up, down, left right, etc.. it is great. Even at night, there is night vision!
And that's not all. Here is the best part: Sound. The thing is so good, I can hear them breathing as they sleep if I turn it up. AND... it gets better. There is a speaker on it, so you can really get big-brother on them.
Here's an example: My younger daughter starts getting out of her bed to go mess with her sister. I catch it out of the corner of my eye while the monitor is sitting on the counter. I put the button, "Get back in your bed Marguerite!". Bam. She spins around and gets back in her bed.
That would normally have resulted in both of them getting up and playing around a bit before I even heard it and stormed down the hallway. Now, just a quick sentence and it's over without me getting up.
Moreover... they know it's there and immediately discovered that they no longer have to scream my name when they want something. They just say, "Daddy... are you there? Daddy... Can I go get a glass of water?" And I can calmly tell them OK without screaming myself.
Not everybody needs a video monitor, but for me it turned out to be essential. Not just so I can watch my babies sleep, but because as they get older and start to do things like crawl out of their crib, or grab a cord that they didn't use to be able to reach, or during transitioning from a crib to a toddler bed and they fall out of bed, or throw a tantrum and start banging on things you can see what's going on and whether or not you need to go in and intervene or if you're better off just leaving the door shut.
I haven't tried any of the other video monitors, but I have been happy with this one. Very happy.
You can keep your eye on the child the whole time. I love it. You can adjust the screen resolution to help you see more clearly. You are also able to adjust the camera lense position from the recorder your watching from without having to go into the child's room and worried that you will disturb them.
(We only use this when we put her down for a nap or in her moms case as well at night.)
It really is a life saver for all baby sitters and parents.
I am a mother myself but I never owned one of these only the monitors. I will definetely be getting one of these once I have a second child!
I highly recommend this! Two thumbs up from me!
