I read the other reviews and it did worry me that someone else around us would be able to see my son at night, but it didn't worry me enough to hinder my purchase. Honestly, what harm could it do if someone could see him? I still lock my doors...anyhow. I was pleased with how quickly this got to our home.
My son is a year and 1/2 old and wasn't sleeping through the night. I was ready to do the cry it out method but it always worried me that when he WOULD quiet down if it was from being tired or if something else had happened (blanket over his face, etc.) I would go in to his room and check on him, and that would wake him up and cause him to cry even longer.
I knew I needed a video monitor for my peace of mind. We got this on a Friday and began the cry it out that night. It was a relief to see that he wasn't hurting himself when he would stop crying. And in a way it was amusing to see him in there hugging his little stuffed animals and trying to cover himself up with his blankie when he was getting tired.
I like the fact that I don't have to rely on batteries. I know this put some other reviewers off, but for me, I can find a plug ANYWHERE. We even have one on our patio outside, so it IS portable to me. I take the monitor to whatever room I'm in and it's no big deal. I don't have to buy expensive batteries!
I was worried I'd have to keep a nightlight on so the camera would pick up his image, but it's got night vision so I can keep it completely dark in his room and not have to worry. You can also turn off the sound so all you get is the picture.
LOVE THIS and I wish I had gotten it sooner! I would DEFINITELY recommend this to my friends!
