Video Monitors: You’ve Come a Long Way Baby
Wednesday July 17, 2013see more by jen
Today’s post is a Motorola video baby monitor review and I have one thing to say about video monitors, you’ve come a long way baby!
I bought my first baby monitor seven years ago with my firstborn. It was massive walkie talkie like device, with constant static.
Even though my girls aren’t babies anymore at ages four and seven, I still use a monitor with my little one because our bedroom is upstairs and we cannot hear her during the night without a monitor.
The last one I was using was not great, audio only, and again, a lot of constant static. The static drives me CRAY CRAY.
I have been known to sleep with a pillow over my head to escape.
So when a Motorola representative contacted me about doing a Motorola video baby monitor review I said, “absolutely!” as I was actually in the market to try a new one.
Even though at this stage I would not probably have opted to buy a video monitor, I can’t wait to share the features with you because it is AWESOME (I am singing the word “awesome” just so you know.)
It is SO clear – I am happy to share zero to minimal static! Woo hoo!
Motorola Video Monitor Features I Love
~ Nice display: It has a nice 3.5 inch diagonal color display with great clarity that allows you to ZOOM for a closer view and has good night vision.
~ Parent unit rechargable battery: Rechargable battery allows you to use it plugged or unplugged.
~ Temperature: Baby’s room temperature displays on the screen. Great for checking to see if room is too hot or too cold.
~ Additional cameras can be paired to the parent device. We don’t use this feature, but if you have multiple children, this would be a super cool feature to monitor both in different rooms from the same monitor.
~ Plug in and go: Super easy set up and operation. I am not a “read the manual” type of girl, I like to plug something in and have it work fairly easily, which is the case with this monitor.
~ Handy travel case: My model came in a handy travel case for easy transport anywhere it needs to go.
And my very, very, very favorite feature…
~ Two-way communication! With the push of a button, I can talk to my daughter in her room if I am upstairs getting ready without having to YELL down from the top of the stairs to say things like, “Put on your shoes!” It is like a walkie talkie in this sense, only she can just talk back to me from her room without having to do anything.
I give this product two huge thumbs ups for anyone looking to purchase a video baby monitor. I hope you have found my Motorola video baby monitor review helpful!
Disclosure: I was sent this monitor complimentary to facilitate a review. All opinions are 100% my own, genuine ones as always. Thank you Motorola!
