I did so much research on baby monitors, it took weeks to make a decision. I wanted one that was a closed circuit, not wifi, had good night vision, and you could tilt/move the camera from the parent unit remotely. This does it all! And it does it well. Set up is easy, the camera is already paired to the monitor. Picture quality is great, battery life is normal. I wish it did come with two cameras but another camera is $90 on Amazon.. not too bad. Some of the other brands I couldn't even find a second camera anywhere online even though they said they support multiple cameras. It's pricey but it's been great so far!

To be a gift in August, but it looks to be a perfect gift. Thanks for such speedy delivery.
Infant Optics DXR 8Video Baby Monitor
Purchased this for my son and daughter--in-law for their first baby. He is in the Air Force and stationed in England! They love it and are thrilled with all the bells and whistles it has. Only thing I would suggest is that there was a way to send it to an APO for someone who is in the military ... had to have it sent to me then send it to them. Other than that - it is great!
Great little guy
Very nice monitor. The only problem is when the baby is in the swing, he is a little blurry, but this camera is worth every penny. I did a fair amount of research and this is where we landed, and I am satisfied. Video and audio are both great.
Excellent Baby Monitor
This monitor is simple & straightforward. It provides high quality video and sound for monitoring a baby, and provides quality video even in the dark. The ability to move the camera remotely works well, and makes it easy to not have to check up on the camera once it's running. The only reason I do not give it 5 stars is that it lacks more modern features, such as integration with mobile devices.
Picture quality isn't quite what was advertised, it's a little fuzzy but it still works well. I got the wide angle lens to watch an active toddler, the lens covers most of the room, with the movement capabilities covering the rest. It doesn't quite pick up on the light in the room unless its pointed directly at it, so for some of the room it reads in the black and white night vision even during the day. This isn't a problem for me, I can still see the kiddo. The range for the portable monitor covers the whole house (house isn't huge), though I leave it plugged in at night so it lasts the whole night. The peace of mind given was worth the money.
So far so good
I have only had this device for two days and so far so good. The image is surprisingly good. I have not tried the zoom adapter yet but I like the features and how easy it is to use. The thermometer is off but once you know how much it's off it's very consistent. For example my home is 74F but the device states it's 79F, when my home rises to 75F it reads 80F. Other than that I like it.
The camera and monitor are good, but the battery in the monitor sucks and doesn't last long at all. I
I know it has thousands of great reviews and is consitently ranked the best baby monitor, but dont be fooled! The company used to offer a free add-on camera to anyone who wrote a review. And the websites that are giving it high marks arenât using it over an extended period of time. This baby monitor is great ... for the first month or so. At that point youâll start noticing that the image quality in night mode isnât as sharp as it used to be. Youâll convince yourself that itâs nothing ... and then slowly over time the image quality will degrade to the point that the system is practically unusable (can you see the stuffed animal in the crib in the attached picture? No? Imagine that was your baby). When I reached that point, I contacted customer service and they sent me a new camera (I had to pay for shipping to return the old one). Everything was great for a month, and then the exact same thing started to happen. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Do NOT spend the small fortune is costs to buy this monitor. When it works well, it may be one of the best monitors on the market, but that will only be true for a couple of months. Go with something thatâs cheaper, even if the image quality isnât as great. Trust me, it will work better in the long run.
