The monitor will lose the feed pretty regularly or just lock up. Generally it's a good monitor but I'm not impressed with motorola's quality.

Loved it at first

I researched baby monitors to death and this was the one I settled on. Initially I loved it. I used every feature on this baby monitor. The picture is crystal clear and I loved that I was able to see baby's chest rise. It has great range in my house including the basement and backyard. 8 months after having this monitor the sound stopped working. I found this out the hard way. My baby was crying but I had no idea because the monitor was silent. I exchanged it for another one and within 2 months we started having problems again. This time the problem was that it randomly would shut itself off. I will be returning it and now I am very hesitant to buy another Motorola monitor.

Too quiet but still enjoy it

This monitor is quiet even with the volume turned up to the maximum. That being said, I still really like it. The screen is big and detailed enough to see what you need to see. The lights do light up when my little one makes a sound, but it cannot be seen in bright light (ie. on the patio). We use the app all the time; however, we do notice that the app has a lag compared to the parent unit. It is awesome to receive notifications on my phone when the monitor picks up motion though. I like being able to check in on my little one while I'm away from the house as well. The lullabies are great in theory but do not soothe my little one at all and they blast through the parent unit speaker.

Great to start with but does not last

We have now had 2 of these monitors and both have been returned due to the parent unit randomly turning itself off and the charging ports loosening over time. We were so pleased to begin with, the picture is so crisp and clean we could see our babe breathing and the connectivity to our phones was amazing. The pan feature especially was so incredibly useful. This unfortunately only lasted for 7 Months with our first unit and less than 3 with our replacement. For such an expensive piece of equipment that for many people is used as a safety tool in their children's nurserys I expected a much higher quality unit that would last us years not months. Very dissapointing!

Nifty Device

This is one of those items we didn't know we needed until we got it. It is such an improvement over an audio only monitor. The picture is crisp, even when the room is dark. It was so easy to set up and use that my three-year-old has figured it out. The range is decent; I can take the monitor into the backyard and still see what's going on with baby. It even survived a drop into a snow bank. One drawback - the camera has a flashing blue light on top of it which we were concerned might wake up our son, however it hasn't been an issue. Overall, a great little machine.

The best of both worlds: monitor and phone

My husband was set on using a dropcam as our baby monitor, ""we don't need a monitor screen, we'll use our phones!"" he said. When we received this monitor as a baby shower gift, he was skeptical, but it really is the best of both worlds! The benefits of a traditional baby monitor with a handy monitor unit, and the advantages of an app to view the monitor from your mobile device. I lasted a week with the dropcam, and always found it a pain having to use my phone as the monitor and constantly wake it up again, the monitor is just perfect for around the house! We found the entire setup process simple, and were watching our nursery within minutes. We are very pleased with the overall build quality, audio/video resolution and sound along with battery life of the monitor (also really handy that it charges using a standard USB cable (we have lots of spares). We have yet to travel with the unit, but it all fits into a pretty small package, so we'll likely include it on our luggage when we next go away and it's handy that the monitor can share cables and adapters which our cameras. My one only small suggestion for the system would be to improve the battery installation on the monitor screen unit. It was a bit of a hassle to find a screwdriver, and then installation of the battery was awkward as the cord didn't cleanly sit under the cover. But don't let that prevent you from ordering this unit, I've been nothing but pleased.

Finally a peace of mind & good night sleep

This monitor has a clear sound and a large screen to see the baby during the day or nighttime. I appreciated the extras this monitor offered like room temperature (I didn't need to worry if the room is too hot or cold) and playing the baby some music to sleep. It was a breeze to set up and I love being able to connect my iPhone to use as a second monitor. My only complaint is to have more color choice like baby blue or hot pink.

  • from Toronto, ON

It really helps

This baby monitor is very helpful to me. I can have some my own time during my baby sleeping without worry about not knowing she may wake up. The screen shows me if she moves and also I can hear if she cries.When she rolls out of camera range I can use screen contorl monitor view.

  • from Surrey, BC

Overall, a great product

This product is very easy to use straight out of the box. It doesn't require much set up other than connecting it to a wifi network. I would recommend securing the wifi network that it is hooked up to to avoid potential hackers (which was one of my fears with using this product or products similar to this one). I liked that it wasn't a requirement to use wifi with the product, unless you are using the camera from your smart phone. There is a bit of a delay when using it through the phone, but overall it is a great product.

Video monitor

So we got this monitor and I didn't know how to feel about it at first. As I got used to it I appreciated it more and more. Pros -easy to use -convenient -can set up to your iPhone or other devices -can have multiple cameras Cons -cam light flashes -if it disconnects it's kinda loud and surprising -personally the cords weren't quite long enough to my liking

  • from Victoria, BC

Great Product

Really enjoying the motorola monitor. With all the stresses of being new parents, being able to see my son sleeping has been a God send! My son is a light sleeper so my favourite feature is the ability to play music through it. Would 100% recommend this product to all my mom to be friends.

  • from Grande Prairie, AB

Simply Amazing!!

I was super impressed with the camera. Setting it up was super easy, the buttons are easy to understand without needing to read the manual. My husband only had a hard time putting the battery in the back, the wires were hard to squeeze in. I had no issues with the camera staying connected to the monitor screen through all three levels of my house. The picture is always clear, even at night when my baby's room is dark the night vision automatically kicks in. I don't have to go into the room anymore at night time to see if her room is cold as it tells me the temperature. Sound quality is great even when using it as an intercom. I love being able to move the camera around only using the keys on the monitor. That way I can watch anyone who comes into the room. I connected the camera to my tablet so I can use all controls through that instead of the monitor. I have a blackberry phone so I cannot connect through there but I have used it on my tablet while at a friends house. Everything worked the same as though I was at my own house. I could even talk to my babysitter while she was in the room with the baby. As I am writing this review my tablet hubble app let me know there is motion detected in my baby's room. I clicked on the notice and I can see my baby is standing up awake from her nap, I can also hear her adorable noises. This camera and monitor is great for any new mom. It keeps you connected at all times with your baby. No more trying to creep into the room without waking her to make sure she is ok. I can now see everything that happens in my babys room at anytime, anywhere I am. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone!

Motorola 3.5" wifi monitor

I am not a big fan of this monitor mainly because of the volume. I have a loud house and the volume on the handset even when turned all the way up was not very loud the camera end has great volume though. There is a 2 second delay on the monitor so it echoes. On the positive side I liked that the handset had a stand, the picture is very clear, it has a great distance and it did not loose connection even once. The battery life is only a couple hours when it's off the charger but it can be used while charging and has a pretty long cord. I do like the lullaby feature. The ability to use it with your phone is also a great idea.

  • from Scarborough, ON

Helpful baby monitor

This product is very helpful. Finally I can relax myself in different room when my little one sleeping. The instruction is easy to understand. The best part I like about this baby monitor is I can use the controller to change camera's the angle of view.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Perfect video montior !!!

I'm using this product about a week and I find it's great for me because you can keep eye on your child even trough app on the phone when you are away from home .i find that 's perfectly work for me and my job during work and baby care at the same time. Excellent sound and pic !!! It's make my life much easier now. All in all I love this product and I recommend anyone who need a baby monitor

Better suited as a playroom/toddler's room monitor

The height and/or angle of the camera make it less than ideal to monitor a baby in a crib, especially if the baby moves around quite a lot. I had to prop it up on books and use the maximum angle in order to only see about one quarter of the mattress. I would have needed to mount it on the wall in order to see the entire crib. I used it for a crib in which the mattress is on the lowest level, so it may work better with a higher mattress or with a newborn who is very still in bed. Therefore, I would not recommend it as a baby monitor. However, I found that this product was ideal to monitor my 3-year old in his room or playroom. It allows for a full view of the room with the possibility to easily move the camera around by the touch of a button. The function that allows to talk to the person in the room being monitored is also a nice feature to deal with a toddler without having to always run to another room. The battery life on the screen is not great if you keep it on all the time, but it can be kept plugged in with a long cord to move it around.

Easy Set Up - Terrible Battery Life

I have used this item now for roughly 3 weeks and have not been overly impressed. What I have liked about this is, the ease of setting this up to use with either the monitor that comes with the camera, or the iPad / iPhone app. Using the apps is much easier and smoother to use, and the battery life of the iPad or iPhone easily out performs the monitor itself. I'll get to that later. The other good quality is the screen when in colour (daytime) mode. It's very crisp and the camera sensor is very quick to movement and noise and other activity. What I on't like about this is that it says that the monitor will take 16 hours to fully charge, mine was left in for 16 hours and continued to not fully charge. I got to 24 hours and it was still not fully charged. I went and used the device and the monitor battery died within approx. 4 hours worth of use. This happened 4 times and then I just resorted to using the app with the other devices. Another downside is the quality of the camera in night mode. It's simply not clear enough. it does say that there could be interference with other machines or wifi in the vicinity, but I'm in a small apartment where the camera is in the next room and the quality is simply not good enough, and let's be honest, most times that you use this is when your baby is sleeping in the dark, or dimly lit rooms. Another aspect that takes some getting used to is moving the camera remotely. It's just not sensitive enough and take a few clicks at which time it over compensates and ends up moving to far. I'm not sure who tests these items but it should not happen. In conclusion, I would suggest to use the app, they should just sell the camera alone, as this is the best way to view. Improve on the night vision and you'd have a pretty good device. I'd rate this as a 2.5 - 3 out of 5.

Great picture quality and audio

It took a bit of fiddling to get the camera in the proper position but once I did it was very easy to pan around to track my little one's movement in the crib. The picture quality is a vast improvement over my previous video monitor. The lullaby function is wonderful for masking household noise and helping my little one settle in for the night.

Motorola monitor.

My wife and I got this product a couple weeks ago. We skeptical at first as we had another monitor by Motorola that was less then awesome and wouldn't hold a charge, but this unit is completely different! Also being that I commute a lot with work from Ontario I was excited to try out this unit. The quality is amazing The screen is large and great quality picture Wifi feature gives us the ability to be anywhere we have internet signal to monitor- after installing the Hubble app, just clicking on the app on your smartphone pulls up what the monitor sees and gives you all the functions as the hand heald monitor does. Even when I'm in Alberta I can see real time my wife and baby and also control it as if I was home. It makes being away less painful. You can zoom in and out, talk into the handheld device and baby can hear you to help calm them And our favourite feature! the selection of music. You have several soothing songs to choose from, right from the handheld device! We only have the one camera so far but we can link up to four, so for sure we will be adding to monitor more rooms and out older children. Lol. This has to be one of the coolest and most useful baby products out there!

Love this baby monitor

I really like this monitor. It notifies me of movement on my phone once I put the app on it. I can watch from my phone or the parental unit. The only thing I don't like is the parental unit dies quickly even with the "good" battery.

  • from Calgary, AB

Great product!

I use this monitor to watch my girls when they sleep and play, even at night! 5 kinds of music and record the video! I connected it to my iPhone . It is very easy to use and connect.It is really cool to care my girls and let me know what they are doing and record the beautiful moment! Great!

  • from North York, ON

Great Product! Amazing & very Helpful.....

For a Mommy like me, this product is a GREAT HELP! I just had this recently and I am excited to rate and give my reviews for this Amazing product! Most of the day its just me and my baby in our small apartment, inorder for me to do some chores, I have to leave the baby in our living room watching tv, I installed the application in my phone to carry it around and with this product, you'll feel at ease, every noise and motion was easily detected and it sends out notifications so you'll be able to know what's happening with your baby. Just download the app that will take few seconds to install everything. Easy to use. Easy to Install. Instructions are detailed so you wont get lost. Download the App. You can monitor your baby through your phone. And speak to the baby though you're far because of it's amazing speaker. You can adjust every single detail in this baby monitor, the brightness, the sound, the volume, etc.. Camera is very clear also. I love this product! Highly recommendable to anyone especially to those mommy's like me. I gave 4 out 5.. wishing that the monitor is shockproof and/or waterproof, less worries when I have to bring it in the washroom or kitchen with me. Or maybe they can provide a waterproof cover/shield for the monitor. No regrets having this!

Not bad but not the best

I've used angel care for both kids and decided to give this monitor a shot because I liked the bigger viewing screen on the parent device and the fact you can move/change the angle of the camera. It was really easy to hook up and took no time for me to figure out how to use the different options. The lullaby feature is pretty cool but I don't think I'll ever use it. The issues I have with it is it's hard for me to set the camera up so I can see inside the crib. I wanted to set it up on the shelf but the base is so big that u can't set the camera angle low enough to see the whole crib without taking down and re screwing the shelf up. I moved it to the other shelf across the room and now I see the whole side of the crib but can't see her unless she stands up which at her age she can't. Since Its hard to see through the bars if she moves into a bad position it doesn't set off the motion sensor to turn the screen on and it only senses loud crying or shouting. As I'm writing this I can hear her moving but the monitor isn't picking up the movement or sound and turning the screen on. The camera is all by itself on a empty shelf but the mic sticks out the back so maybe it isn't picking up the sound right. The monitor can be put on the wall but i personally don't want screws or nails in the wall or I could adjust the level of the shelf but that's a lot of work. My old angel care monitor could be put anywhere at any angle (with the help of a book to lean on) and I saw everything I wanted to see but this monitor is hard to do that unless you have the perfect conditions/shelf level for it to sit on. The phone app is pretty cool but I don't use that either since I'm always at home but if left with a babysitter I would use it to check in. If my kids were in toddler beds this would be perfect as I can see/scan the whole room and have no obstructions while looking at them in bed. I actually will be putting my old monitor back into her room and moving this monitor into the play room so I can keep an eye on my son who seems to get into everything every chance he gets. If it's needed I will be putting it back in the room once they are out of cribs and in a proper bed. But until then I will be sticking with our old monitor.

This monitor is really one of a kind with its best quality and is unique from others. It's very durable and useful to monitor your baby whenever you are in another room.Overall, I highly recommend this product to mother's who is in need of a good and a faster way to monitor their babies.
