Very happy with this purchase!

Our other monitor Always had a lot of static, but this one is so quiet unless my baby is making noise. I am so happy with this monitor, so many functions and I love that i can see the temperature of my baby's room!! I wish I had this for the first year of his life. We've only been using It for about a month, but I am really happy with it. I keep it plugged in overnight while it is on and the charge lasts the whole day for naps.

Works fine out of the box

Picked this up well before baby showed up so review is basically me taking it out of the box and making sure it works before baby shows up. Video is decent, range is good and the pan/tilt is fun to play with. Assuming it doesn't break I'd say a great purchase when on sale, wouldn't have paid the full price for this model.

If I could give rating of no stars I would

Brought this home and went to plug in and the power cable was broken. Was able to plug into the monitor but needed to push the plus in further for it to actually start charging. Very disappointed.

Really decent camera, better than Summer Infant

I bought 2 sets on a flash sale as a set was cheaper than a second camera by itself. Also it provides me with a back up monitor in case the first one dies (I've read many reviews saying that's a common issue). I also bought a Summer Infant Side-by-Side and compared the two. I returned the Summer Infant as the image quality sucked and the monitor was huge. Pros: - Uses the same cable as my cell phone to charge so I never worry about battery life. - Very clear image - Sound is good - Large screen, not much different than a cell phone - Easy to switch screens and picture-in-picture - Very good range of pan and tilt. Zoom is still decent quality if needed. - Easy to install - Replaceable battery pack - The power adapters have a small footprint and only take up one plug as the cord comes off the side. - Temperature display Cons: - All of the features are only accessible through the menu option, even the volume, which is annoying especially at night because the arrow keys aren't backlit. I should note though that it's a very simple menu and I'm sure with time I'll be able to work it in the dark. - The lullabies are a nice feature but the speaker isn't too loud in the room so you have to crank the volume and you hear it just as loud through the monitor. You also need to manually shut it off.

Great product

We have two cameras and the picture in picture is great for keeping an eye on both kids. Highly recommended.

Virtual babysitter

Great product! Clear, colour picture. Ability to pan up/down, side-to-side and zoom, can play 5 songs to soothe the child or you can talk to your child through the hand held device! Literally the features are endless. The size of the hand held monitor is a bit awkward for carrying around the house (doesn't fit easily in a pocket) and the volume even on its highest setting is hard to hear. Highly recommend this product!

Won't pan left or right

Just started it and it won't pan left or right. Now because I've bought it online I have to go through all the hoops of "customer service". Never buying online again. Seems to have a lot of background noise.

Works Fine

Display is good/clear and easy to navigate through features. Panning is good and zoom works but finding that tilt isn't enough to be able to place the camera on crib rails and see baby great. Would be better with a higher dresser beside the crib or can be mounted to wall but does it's purpose. We got on sale and think it is well worth the price but would probably not like it as much at full price.

Charging port broken

My base unit will also no longer charge unless I wiggle the plug and hold it with tape. I have only been using this monitor for two months! I will be contacting Best Buy and Motorola customer service as we paid full price and I do not want to have to keep replacing this monitor over and over until the warranty runs out and I am stuck with a useless monitor. Very frustrating!

Poor Quality, Terrible customer service

We bought this monitor for our son and thought it was so great, Until after about 5 months in when the spot where you plug in the charger loosened and suddenly wouldn't charged unless we wrapped tape around it to hold the cord at "just the right angle". This is s known issue, see other reviews. We suffered thru using tape and around month 7 it would randomly say cannot connect to camera.....just what you want in a VIDEO monitor. And unplugging camera several times it would reconnect only to go same thing again Later in the day. Finally after about a week of that ;do not even 8 months old) the screen dies....it will turn on. Few seconds then gone, no picture, no sound yet fully charged (thanks to the tape). I had tried to contact customer service with initial issue and again when it died. They refused to help as we did not have original receipt (was a gift). They said they never heard of the charging slot issue and I had no proof of how old it was so basically too bad.... I don't recommend this product.

Best one we could find

My wife and I have twins so we were looking for a baby monitor that could handle two (or more) separate cameras. We bought and tried a few, including this one and the Summer Infant (which were the final two) and decided that the Motorola was the best one. Here's why: 1. Best Buy has them on sale fairly regularly. We got ours on a really good sale, including 2 cameras. Sign up for the Best Buy sale announcements and you'll get an email whenever stuff like this goes on sale. 2. It works, really, really well. You can actually pan/tilt and zoom very easily and quickly (it has two speeds). The range of view is almost 360 degrees horizontally and over 180 degrees vertically (about 40 degrees down from horizontal). You can place it on a shelf, hook it up on a nail on the wall or put it on an adjacent piece of furniture (we have ours straddling both cribs). 3. The controls are simple and intuitive. With one touch you can switch between each camera or even put it on a loop, which switches back and forth between cameras every 10 seconds. 4. The night vision is excellent. This monitor had the best night vision of all the monitors we tired. You can actually see the babies breathing and whether their eyes are open. 5. The two way voice communication works well too. You can hear the babies just fine and, if they're older, talk to them using the monitor, from anywhere else in the house. Since our babies are still small my wife and I use it to talk to each other from upstairs to the main floor when we've got out hands full with babies. I'd rate this a solid 5/7.

Good but has to be plugged in

This is a great video monitor. It does everything you could really ask for. It has temperature gauge, its super noise sensitive, you can speak to your baby through the monitor, excellent night vision. The only problem with this is that the parent unit has the worst battery life ever. You literally have to keep it plugged in. It will come up and say you have about 60 minutes before you need to charge it, and within 5 minutes, it makes a weird noise and shuts off. So frustrating. You get about a half hour of usage before that notice comes up and the monitor shuts off. Its good if you're going to sit in another room and watch tv while watching you baby, or if you're using it at night while your baby is in another room, and you can have the parent unit plugged in all the time, but otherwise, if you're cooking or cleaning (which most of us do especially when we get some time away from baby), this parent unit is really kind of useless.

Initial review

I cant speak to the long term use of this product, however I was flat out say that this device has "the Best" base to monitor signal strength I have experienced. I have the camera setup in my kids bedroom on one side of the house on the second floor, and I can go all the way down to my basement and still be @ 80% signal strength. I can even go outside of my house on the complete other side of my property and into my garden ( appprox 120ft away) and still be at 100% signal. The picture quality is good and the sound is sensitive. Many people like the "peep" option that other monitors offer ( picture turns on upon hearing noise automatically) but from a father of 2 and soon to be 3... i cant stand that feature. kid sneezes and this bright monitor turns on in your face at 3am. this monitor allows you to hit a button to turn on the video if you hear something of concern.... way better in my opinion. Monitor is pricey, however its solid in term of its functionality... you get way you pay for.

Ok for the price

Not the best quality in terms on night vision on the monitor but it does the trick. The range is the best I have seen so far. The plug in for the power cord looks like it's going to wear out fast. Overall good monitor.

Screen stopped working after 6 months. Pretty disappointed over all.

We got this baby monitor for the birth of our first child. I looked into many different monitors and this one seemed to have good reviews. After using it for about 6 months I've very disappointed. After 6 months of use the screen will randomly go black. We contacted motorola and they just ignored us. CONS: * Screen starting failing after 6 months. * This will mess up your wifi if you have the screen close to a computer or router! * Screen and camera resolution is pretty bad. * Camera doesn't have any battery so it needs to be plugged in at all times. If you lose power it doesn't work. * The battery on the screen doesn't last very long. * The battery indicator on the screen is pretty bad at reporting the actual juice in the battery. * The camera doesn't rotate very much. * All the "lullaby" sounds are lame and we never use them. * The mic to talk to the baby is lame too. * The camera has a green LED that's always on (we covered it up with tape) PRO: * The "sound LED" lights on the screen are nice to have. * The device is pretty easy to use. * The temperature sensor is a nice feature to have. I regret buying this.

No Video after 10 months!!

After only 10 months of using it the screen went white so I not only didn't have video but I couldn't use anything in the menu. After 6 months it would no longer charge so we had to always have it plugged in. Now all I have is sound but I have no way to adjust the volume because I have no video. And of course the warranty goes by the purchase date and we were a couple months over. I do not recommend this product especially when it costs so much and didn't even last through one baby.

Great monitor!

We've had this monitor for a month or so now... And love it. The picture is clear it had all the features to look for. The only thing I would change slightly is the zoom. It has two zoom setting. I would prefer a more gradual zoom in and out.

Very Good but battery should be better for price

"Likes Temperature display Camera adjustment from remote Picture/ night vision make it easy to see if baby's eyes are open and picture is clear enough to see belly rise and fall with breathing depending on the position Microphone on parent came in handy when i was up in baby's room and husband was downstairs with a question Don't know if I'll ever use the lullaby feature but it's a nice touch Very clear sound very little static and the background music we play for her is barely picked up by the mic so we don't have to listen to it Dislikes Camera power switch is hard to turn on without moving camera so i just leave it on. Would be better if it was a push button instead of a switch Hard to see control buttons on parent unit if in lowlight-symbols could be bigger Annoying beep if you turn on parent unit when camera is not on Parent unit turns on when you plug it in to charge If you have the parent unit on without video, and then turn on the video, the notice about 5 minutes stays on the screen. I have to move the camera to get the notice to go away. (and then have to move the camera back). I would think the OK button should clear the notice from the screen but it does not Battery charging on parent unit- don't know when it's full cause it never stops flashing The really big one for me is the battery life on parent unit-fades quicker than expected-one time it went down one bar immediately after unplugging from wall after 12 hours. "

LOVE IT!

We originally had the Dlink HD EyeOn Wifi. We've had it for a year now and CONSTANTLY had problems, I was so happy with it when it got delivered because it looks so nice and we were able to run it off our cellphones, probably a week in it started crashing. We switched cellphones and the problem continued. So we did even MORE research and found the Motorola (above), I can't wait to use it tonight without any WIFI problems. I am so relieved to have something that I don't have to worry about freezing or killing my phone battery. Very very pleased with this monitor, and it has so many more functions.

The Cadillac of baby monitors!

What a fantastic baby monitor! I cannot rave enough about it, and the only reason I didn't give it 5 Stars is because the website literally wouldn't let me! Some of my favourite features: - Size of the screen. It's large, and very clear. -The camera zoom. Yes, it zooms! For those times when your wondering 'what is baby holding?' You can zoom in and see 'oh, it's just a sock!' -The camera moves remotely. Up, down, and side to side. Which is wonderful to follow baby around his crib, or to see what he just threw out of the crib! -The feature to add additional cameras for siblings. All in all it's an amazing unit, and has great value for the money.

Excellent Monitor

My wife and I have been fortunate enough to have used another top end (from a different brand) monitor previous to using this one. In short, the Motorola Digital Baby Monitor far surpasses the other. Here's why this product is great: The monitor clarity is as good as any on the market. Though you may find larger displays, they aren't always as clear, especially in those pitch black rooms. We noticed this right away, just as we did the ease of setup. The setup was done in a snap, unlike with our last baby monitor. We also really appreciated the maneuverability of the camera in our to get the best shot of our son. It's incredibly simple. On our other monitor, once we had it in place we never moved the camera in fear of having to set it all back up again. With the Motorola, we move it all over the place, often readjusting the tilt based on where we set it. No fears needed. This monitor like others has a sensitive sound monitor, useful to see when the little one really needs your attention and has a talk back feature. With all that said, our favourite part of the Motorola was the temperature gauge to know what the level was in the baby's room. Before this monitor we had to tinker and guess. Now that we have it, we can never go back to anything else. It provides good peace of mind that the room is the right temperature or if changes are needed. We now recommend this monitor to our friends because we have been so happy with it.

My Best Partner in Watching My Baby

I love this product! I am so glad to have and use it. It's very helpful for me as a first time mom. I no longer worry leaving my baby in his crib because I can still watch him even when I'm around the house doing other household chores. I can see his every movements, the 3.5" monitor is very clear. The night vision is amazing because I can clearly see my baby even when all the lights are off. It gives me peace of mind knowing that my baby is peacefully sleeping. If there's one thing that every mothers should have, it should be this. You're third eye and best partner.

Wonderful Baby Monitor!

I've been using this monitor for a while now and it gives my husband and me peace of mind. We are able to hear our baby clearly and can change the angle of the camera to keep his head in view if he moves. I love the various features this monitor offers, including temperature readings, volume control, night vision camera, and power saving setting. Especially useful are the music setting and the speaker. I can set the music to shuffle and it plays beautiful lullabies that are pleasant to listen to and put my baby to sleep in just a few minutes! The speaker allows me to speak to my baby without entering the room, which is a wonderful feature. Overall, I am very pleased with this monitor and I use it throughout the day for all naps.

Love this product!!!!

This product features anything you could possibly need to look after your child when they are sleeping! I love the night vision feature because it is very clear and bright and the volume can go pretty high so I can always hear my baby's movements. I can play lullabies that are built in, or even speak to my baby to soothe her. The tilt feature is also amazing as it moves to view almost the entire room if need be. The only thing I would say is not amazing is that the webcam needs to be kept plugged in. Although, the cord is very long so it's not a problem for us. The handheld is cordless and rechargeable, and has a great battery life! Overall, loved by these new parents!!!

Great product!

We have been using this monitor for a couple of weeks now and are very happy with it. The screen resolution is very clear both during the day and at night. The sound quality is also very good, including the two way mic. The camera is very quiet when adjusting the view, so it does not disturb a sleeping baby! Another great feature is the lullabies that can be controlled from the parent unit. The set up was straight forward and easy, although we had a hard time placing the camera so it has view of the whole crib. It might work best from above the crib, so we are going to consider putting up a shelf. One con is that the parent unit battery seems to drain pretty quickly... it hasn't been too much of an issue as it is usually plugged in so the video is always showing. Overall, a great product that I would recommend to others! We were using a sound only monitor for a few months and wish we had this from the beginning, its comforting being able to check on baby without going in the room and causing a potential wake up!

Great monitor so far!

Recently received this monitor through Baby Samplers Club,. I have never owned a video monitor before, so did not know what to expect. Overall, I am very happy with the monitor. Very easy to set up, clear sound and picture and easy to control with remote. Infrared makes it easy to see baby at nighttime. Only downside is that the battery seems to die quite quickly.

Amazing!!!!

I highly recommend this monitor. I had 2 other monitors before and they don't even compare to this one. It has several features that my other monitors didn't have that make such a difference. I love the room temperature display because my son's room tends to get hot (especially in the summer). Now that our son is moving around and standing, the ability to move the angle and direction of the camera remotely means that he is never out of view. The speaker is loud and the monitor display is extremely clear, not fuzzy and blurry like my previous monitors. This camera.makes you feel like you are actually in the room watching your child sleep. I give this monitor an A+

Fantastic product!

Really pleased with this product overall and would definitely recommend it. Setup is INCREDIBLY easy. Monitor and camera are already paired, so you just plug them in, turn them on and they're ready to use! The video is very clear for both daytime and nighttime. The mic is very sensitive, so you hear every sound baby makes (volume has several different settings. I personally like to be able to hear movement) I really like the fact that you can move the camera around remotely; you just place the camera on a flat surface and leave it there, any adjustments can be made using the screen controls. The 2-way audio feature is handy for older children. The system also has the ability to be expanded for up to 3 more cameras. This is fantastic for multiple children as only a new camera would have to be purchased. The range is great and there is an indicator for signal strength. I really feel secure knowing that it is a closed system and does not use a wifi signal. No cons come to mind. All in all a great product, does what it is supposed to, is easy to work with and definitely worth the buy!

Great Product

I have been using this monitor for about 10 days and so far, it has been great. I have tried two different monitors before this one - neither were video monitors. This monitor is definitely superior in the sound quality. I found that with my two other monitors, there was a lot of static when you turned the volume to the max. The sound quality on this Motorola monitor is so good that I can hear my son breathing when I turn it up. This would have been so nice when he was younger and I was so paranoid that I checked on his breathing every hour. He is a very light sleeper and would stir every time I opened the door to his room. This monitor would have let us both sleep better. The picture quality is also very good, although I have nothing to compare it to. There are also several good features: 1) You can set the length of time before the video portion times out 2) You can speak through the monitor. I find this is good if I am in the middle of something and can't get upstairs right away. I can tell my son that I will be up soon. 3) You can play music and control it with the parental unit 4) There is a temperature display so that you know how hot or cold your baby's room is I have read some of the other reviews which say that there are charging issues within several months of using the product but I cannot comment on the long-term reliability of the product since I have only had it for a couple of weeks. Overall, I would definitely recommend this monitor.

An almost perfect monitor with a major drawback

I am a first time mom and I have personally purchased and used 2 previous baby monitors before trying this Motorola monitor. A major component I look for and need in a baby monitor is a crystal clear picture (day and night) along with audible sound and room temperature monitoring which this Motorola monitor has. What this monitor doesn't have which I like to have is motion and sound detection. There are no detailed instructions or explanations of the features that come in the box but instead a quick start up sheet which is pretty self explanatory and user friendly. I tested out the buttons and googled the rest. I have since been using this monitor for the last week. Picture quality: Really clear during the day and at night. Video quality: Clear as well but lagged a bit but it wasn't a deal breaker. Sound quality: The sound on this monitor is probably the best feature. It is insanely clear to the point where I can hear the mattress creaking to the humidifier in the background. I only have it set to the lowest volume setting because anything past that is way too loud especially during the night. Range and interference: Great range and no interference so far and I love that. It must be the 2.4 GHz FHSS technology but compared to my other 2 monitors where it either beeps annoyingly when connection is lost or the screen goes completely blank with no sound because the connection is lost with this monitor I haven't experienced anything like that. The huge NEGATIVE for me is that there is no continuous screen play, motion detection or sound detection. If the baby makes any noise from a peep to full on crying the monitor stays black with only the sound on which is not useful at all because how do you know if you're baby is awake or just having a bad dream. In the early months, how will you know if the baby is sleeping safely on her back or rolled over with no motion detection. When you do want to see what's going on, the monitor does not turn back on unless I hold the screen button which is super annoying. It goes to a blank screen after a maximum of 5 mins of inactivity. There are monitors that go into a sleep mode but turn back on with any slight movement or sound. I am the type of mom that needs to watch her baby even if the baby is sleeping. I like to have that option and this monitor fails miserably in that department. For now, this monitor wouldn't be my go to and daily used monitor but maybe when my baby is older and doesn't need as much monitoring and is past the SIDS age then I would probably use it daily. I would still recommend this monitor based on the sound quality and the amazing range and no interference.

Motorola 3.5" Digital Video Baby Monitor

A great monitor that delivers a clear sound and picture. Easy to install because monitor is already paired so no headache for set up. Positives: - The sound quality is good: we can hear the baby clearly even when using the sound machine and the volume control has a good range. - The picture quality is good: we can see the baby clearly in full darkness as we use black out shades. The night vision gives a clear image and having the zoom and remote control is a nice feature. - The temperature indicator is helpful but not accurate. Negatives: - There really isn't a lot of flat surfaces in the bedroom so it was hard to find a good spot for the camera and it needed to be on the wall making the vision reduced. - The camera makes a humming noise when it moves using the remote. - There is a light on the camera so we had to put gorilla tape on it to cover it. Wishes: - I wish the camera could take a video or screen shots - A clock on the remote screen

overall a good camera

This camera is pretty good overall. It has many good features (night vision, two-way communication, pan tilt) and some nice bonus features like a food assortment of lullabies, great volume controls and an accurate temperature sensor. The biggest downside is that you have to lug around the monitor. The resolution was pretty low and there is a noticeable lag. I would also prefer for it to be a touch screen but it is intuitive and easy to use. This is on par with some of the other video monitors on the market. It is sleek on design and has all the features you'd want and more. If you want a system that has it all, this is one to consider.

Great Monitor!

This picture baby monitor is great. It was very easy to set up and is extremely user friendly. We mounted the camera on the wall in our daughters room and the picture is nice and clear. We love being able to keep an eye on her. The sound quality to the parent unit is good as well. The only thing I do not like is the parent unit seems to pick up sounds from the room it is in and it causes it to echo. Also, the battery life on the parent unit does not seem to last very long when unplugged. We always have it plugged in though so not a big deal for us. I would highly recommend this monitor.

Sooo much better than a baby audio monitor!

First thing I did was charge the unit for 16hrs before usage as per instruction. Battery test Screen on = 5hrs 13mins Screen off and on but off most of the time = 10hrs I had to recondition the battery after the “screen on” test because it didn’t fully charge after but it went back to full after reconditioning. I read on the internet to recondition a battery you have to "drain it then wait for half an hour then charge it like you would normally do" but it depends on the batteries if it’s NiMH or Li-ion or NiCd. Different batteries have different ways of reconditioning it. Distance Test My husband and I tested how far the parent unit stay connected with the baby unit while he went outside our place and it went off by about 125 feet. It did say in the user’s guide though that a lot of factors affect the connection like microwave, walls, etc. Pros: - camera control from the parent unit - plays lullabies from the parent unit so you don’t have to go in the bedroom just to turn on the sleep sheep or whatever music player you have - good enough quality camera - zoom in zoom out (although unnecessary), pan and tilt mode so you can see other parts of the room if something made a noise - options for how long the camera is on – 5, 30, or 60 minutes - saves battery - parent unit mic is not on all the time so baby doesn’t hear you when you’re doing something - temperature sensor, it's good to know it's not freezing or boiling hot in the bedroom Cons: - didn't come with user's guide but unit is easy to navigate, still had to research it online to make sure I wasn’t missing anything - no wifi connectivity, or app so you can access it from your cellphone - it should have it with all the technologies right now - no light indicator when charging – the blue light only indicates that the unit is plugged in, unlike other devices it’s red when it’s charging then it turns blue or green when it’s fully charged - takes 16hrs to fully charge the battery but it was noted in the user's guide that the battery is for when the power goes out so I'm just assuming that you can actually keep the unit plugged in I think the size of the house and if the baby has her own room are factors to consider when buying a monitor. We live in a little over 1000 sq ft condo townhouse (1 level) and our baby sleeps with us in the master bedroom (so I don’t really need to use it for a long time) and our parking is about 10ft from our condo unit (I can, actually, go around our neighboring units to go to the parking lot and still connected). With that being said this video baby monitor is more than enough to meet my needs.

Great product

This product works great! Really like that it has a wide range with good clear sound and picture. The lullaby feature was great for us as well. We are going to buy the additional camera so we can use this monitor in multiple rooms. Only wish it had a motion detector like some other monitors I have used. Would definitely recommend this product to everyone.

Great monitor

Having never used a video monitor before, this was a nice upgrade from a summer infant and sony monitor. It is very sensitive to baby noises, rarely have it over the lowest volume setting. The camera is a good picture and having the temperature display is nice as well. The pan features work well when baby is moving around. My baby also seems to enjoy the music. I'm sure as she gets older the two way communication will come in handy! I do wish that it came with mounting hardware. Overally, very pleased with this product.

Great product gives peace of mind to busy moms

As a busy mom of two babies under two, it is so important to know my kids are safe. This product helps give me piece of mind that my baby is sleeping soundly while I am spending time with my toddler. The monitor picture and voice is crystal clear. We love being able to tilt the camera and zoom in close for a better look. I have used other baby monitors and this one is far superior. It is very easy to used too. You just plug it in and away you go!

Awesome monitor

So far, I've been very happy with my choice. The picture quality is good, the sound quality is great, and its easy to use.Works well! Love all that you can do through the remote, and the big screen allow us to see exactly what's going on in the room without having to unnecessarily disturb the baby.

Amazing product!

It is really a helpful product for parents with little baby, it frees me from being around with my baby all the time. With this product, I can do what I want while my baby is sleeping and I can see him through the monitor. The perfect things of this product are; 1. You can change the angle of view using the bottons on the monitor pan so that you can always see your baby even if he moves around. 2. You can see your baby clearly when the light is weak, cause this product has a night vision. 3. You can hear your baby clearly through the monitor pan, you can even talk to your baby through the pan when you pressing on the button, and this prevent you from disturbing your baby when you don't want to(if you dont press on the button,your voice will not reach your baby). I really like this product!

Amazing. totally recommend.

We just moved our 4.5 year to a new room we created in our bonus room, so she's half a flight of stairs away, I'm so happy with the product. It tells me the temperature in her room, i can see everything. The zoom feature is fabulous, the pan and scan is far better than our baby monitor we bought two years ago. The screen and options on the control are super easy to use and simple. √ This product i would totally recommend and i would say don't look further for a better model of baby monitor out there.

It is really an amazing product,just perfect for me. It frees me from being around with my baby all the time. Now I can do what I want while my baby is sleeping upstairs, I no longer have to go upstairs to check him every twenty minutes. I can see him through the monitor and I can even listen to him through this product, and he can hear me too. What's more, this product has a night vision, which allows me to see my baby clearly even when the light is weak. After all, it's an ideal present for parents, thanks to Bestbuy, thanks to motorola!
