    Customer review 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!

    This is my third monitor. I replaced my original monitor (Sony, lost the adaptor) with a Levana, which was horrible after a few weeks. Our master bedroom is upstairs, but my "baby" is 16mo, so I only needed something to hear him when he wakes up at night. This monitor is inexpensive, but its the best one I've owned. I haven't had any static #I've been using it for about 3 weeks#, the sound quality is great, and the best thing is I can talk to my kids through it. My boys share a room, and my 2yo will sometimes be up before the baby. I can use this to tell him to stay quiet until I come down in a few minutes.

    • 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, we have a very large yard and the reception is excellent outside. Have gone about 200 feet away from the house and stayed connected.

    • yes, I took it outside and even walked 3-4 houses away.

    • 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.

    • 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.
