    Great Product!

    Customer review by ArtemisHuntress

    5.0 stars by ArtemisHuntress

    I purchased this set because I needed monitors for my newborn and I needed them not to interfere with the monitor used for my nephew. These definitely went beyond what I was expecting of them. The sound is very clear and I am able to adjust how sensitive they are so I can only hear when he cries or I can make it so I can hear when he squirms in his crib. I have mine set to the highest sensitivity I can because my son has a medical condition that effects his breathing and I need to be able to hear him breathe and these monitors allow me to do that. The only 2 drawbacks are the only set that is offered only comes with one parent unit and I would have liked to have 2 and the batteries can seem to die faster than expected. I do love the ability to talk to my son to soothe him while I walk to his room to answer his cries or to answer his baby babel when he is laying in his crib happy and talking. I hope everyone is as happy with theirs as I am with mine.

    I purchased this monitor after hours spent looking at just about every monitor in the world! I got this one because its digital, and the parent monitor is rechargable! What i didnt know at the time of purchase is the the parent monitor actually has a talk button on it so you can talk to your baby on it! Overall, i'm VERY happy with this monitor!

    Customer review by txmommy2007

    5.0 stars by txmommy2007

    We love this monitor, great reception, sleek design and nice features too, all for $30.00. This has a great feature called 'talk back' where you can talk into the monitor and your kids can hear your voice. Saves me from going up and down the stairs when my boys need something. They just ask me something from their room and I just answer them from my receiver downstairs, really nice feature!

    • The transmitter only runs on electricity. The parental unit runs on electric or the built-in rechargeable battery. Battery lasts about 12-14 hours.

    • One of them does both... I can plug it and once charged, I can also take it with me clipped on my pants... even outside. The one that stays with baby can only be plugged.

    • Yes, in fact the way you recharge the battery is by plugging it in. It can also be used while recharging the battery.

    I don't want to use batteries.
    by rjjoe 6/3/2012
    • Yes. That is how we use ours. The batteries would be a great back-up in case of power failure, but otherwise an added expense.

    • The baby unit only runs plugged in, but the parent unit has a rechargeable battery that lasts for many hours when fully charged. It also has a "low battery" alert to let you know it needs to be recharged soon.

    • Anytime you plug the monitor into the wall it works, charges your battery if it is low and it does not drain your battery. They said on the box the battery life would only last an hour and a half, but we used it all day and it still had two bars left. We use it everyday and it still is working great after a month.

    • Only the parents receiver uses batteries.but its the rechargable ones and they are included. You just charge the parental receiver and either leave it plugged in or take it with you around the house.

    • Both units plug in. However the parent unit also comes with a rechargable battery that allows you to travel room to room with it. It recharges once it's plugged back in.I didn't want batteries either and this unit is great!

    • Most likely. I've used it while I worked in the garage, about 100 feet through the indoors from the childs room. I would expect you to be able to work around the house within reasonable distances (less than 500 feet probably)

    • Yes, it does. I've even been able to go to the mailbox a few houses down the street from us, and it seems to work just fine for me. The only objection I have is that if there is any outside noise, in my experience, I can't hear the monitor at all. Others have said they can hear just fine, which was why I purchased this one in the first place. But when I go outside, I have to hook the parent unit to my shirt, or hold it to my ear, in order to hear anything. Not 100% handy, in my opinion. But, yes, it does work outside.

    • Probably. The user manual says that it has a range of 1000 ft outdoors and 150 indoors. That doesn't mean that when the baby unit is inside, you can be 1000 ft away outside. It means that when your outside with both units then there isn't much to disrupt the signal. But inside you have walls and such to disrupt or weaken the signal.
