Rated 2 out of 5 by LON7 Nothing like my previous Summer monitor
I returned this item. Even with full light in the room and less than 6 feet away the baby couldn't even be fully seen on the monitor. I tried several adjustments but it was entirely too dark most of the time. You could see some of the crib rails but only make out the outline of the baby. Not helpful in a visual monitor.
I did later purchase the summer infant slim and secure single camera monitor and I am very happy with it. It can add up to 4 cameras in addition.
Rated 4 out of 5 by jandkfamily Best monitor for the price
We searched for quite some time for a two-room monitor and decided to buy this one. We've been very happy with it. There are quirks that we would love to see fixed, but a good monitor overall. The receiver makes a light buzzing sound when it is on video mode, but we just keep it on audio until we want to see the camera. We LOVE the walkie-talkie feature! We also appreciate the alternating mode. The camera alternates between rooms every 8 seconds. However, we have had some trouble turning this feature on. It requires the user to hit a button twice, but if it is done too quickly or too slowly, the alternating mode will not go into effect. Again, this is something we have figured out, but would love to see corrected. Overall, a buyer could definitely find a better monitor system, but for the price it has met our needs well.

I've tried a lot of monitors by Summer. This is definitely not my favorite. The two cameras are a good deal, but they don't move. The signal was weak too. I would recommend this set only if you want it for an infant that you want to keep an eye on while he's sleeping.
Rated 1 out of 5 by CS1008 Buy a different monitor
This monitor is not good at all. After 1 month of use, it would not pick up a signal from either camera. The range is not anywhere near what it claims it can reach. For such an expensive monitor, I would expect much better quality.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimmeez Dependable system
My wife and I have used this system everynight and parts of the day for the last 2 1/2 years and it is still working fine. We had a small issue with the video not displaying when we first bought it but my wife called the company and they walked her through on how to reset the monitor and it has worked fine ever since. We are about to buy a second system for our 2nd boy. I would recommend it. It provides peace at night when you're a scared to death first parent about letting your child sleep in a different room. you can easily look over and see what he/she is doing.
Rated 2 out of 5 by sharingMommy Was faulty
The idea is good but it was faulty. We had it less than a week and the buttons would stck, some jumbled words would show on the screen randomly and would shut off. The talk back feature was nice, especially since we have a two story. Wish it worked out :(
