To set up the baby monitor was super simple. Both the camera and the monitor come with electrical cords you can plug in, so you don't need to use batteries. Especially for the camera, since you are less likely to move that device around the room. The monitor can be cordless which is convenient if you are moving around alot doing laundry or cleaning. I have to say, the picture quality of the monitor is very good. There is also a feature called VOX that only turns on the monitor if a noise is heard i.e. your baby rustling the covers and starting to make noise. You can also set the noise level it picks up so if you only want to see the picture when your baby is making a lot of noise i.e. fully awake and crying, or you can set it so it picks up softer sounds i.e. the baby moving the blankets around. This is convenient for me since my baby is always in a happier mood when I pick her up when she is just stirring vs. fully awake and crying. But for those babies that might be more restless sleepers and can soothe themselves back to sleep, the other volume would work better. The other features include being able to talk to your baby through the camera, so if just hearing your voice puts your baby at ease, this is a great feature. You can also play 4 different lullaby tunes from the camera, which again is great to help your baby self-soothe. I personally haven't been successful at getting my little one to do this, but I thought it was a great feature to have. The only issue I have with the device is the night vision feature. Although this is great on the monitor-viewing side to be able to see in the dark. On the receiving side, I noticed the camera emits some kind of red light (like you see on TV when people where night vision goggles) and this disturbed my eyes when I looked at the camera at night. So I'm sure for a baby who opens her eyes at night, this would be really uncomfortable. This is not a deal breaker, but definitely something to test to see how it feels when you look at the camera when night vision is on. I would definitely recommend this product. It's small and compact but has nice features.
