Une fois connecté , cette camera est géniale. Le défi est de la connecter. Ca dit constament "setup incomplete" sans raison. Apres beaucoup de patiente et perceverence, j'ai enfin reussi. Il faut vraiment etre a coté de votre routeur wifi parce que si vous etes a plus de 5 metre pour la premiere connection, ca fonctionnera pas. Le support technique "le chat" est vraiment basic , plug deplug les appareil et cest pas mal ca, je crois que mon neveu de 5 ans en connais plus
Was really, really excited for this monitor and couldn’t wait to try it out with my bigger kids while we wait for the new baby. The set up was simple enough, had no trouble syncing and setting up the app.
Picture during the day is crisp and clear and I love the dual stands, makes using it in multiple rooms a breeze.
The issue didn’t start until dusk, while Cubo is on the crib stand and facing down, we were fine but as soon as the camera is tilted outwards to see the room, glare occurred making it impossible to see. After some trouble shooting, adjusting curtains and blinds we decided to give it some time for full darkness, thinking that the twilight glow was disrupting the night vision from fully functioning.
Unfortunately, even in full darkness the night vision was unable to function, leaving us with a grainy, grey reflection on the monitor screen that nothing would fix. My husband suggested a background light but even the nightlight couldn’t bring the picture into focus.
I’ve contacted Cubo help desk and am waiting for a response and hoping this is just a singular issue (my teenager checked to make sure there was no film protector on the camera)
For just a crib view, it’s great! Function and adorable. Using it to view a room, not so much. I was also a little disappointed at how light/cheaply made it seemed when you hold it. The wooden part is very well made but the plastic bird itself is cheap and the seams are rough around the edges.
I’m not sure I’d buy this again, because being able to view a whole room is a feature we wanted in a monitor.
I did a ton of research and read comments about this product before purchasing. The price didn’t bother me because if it worked- it was worth it. I only kept this product for 3 days. The two biggest reasons for my return were 1.) the lag/time it took to load the app once opened and 2.) false notifications. It alerts you when baby has left and returned to their crib, cries, rolls over, or covers their face. My phone would go off minutes after I’ve picked my daughter up and let me know she was out of her crib. It would also tell me she was crying when she wasn’t. If she was laying down for a nap and I was on my phone and attempted to open the app, you’d see a circle indicating it was loading. It gave me such anxiety waiting for the picture to pop up, that I would just end up going up to check on her. Which defeats the purpose of a monitor. Also, the thing can’t be turned via the app. I’ve owned several monitors, all of which can be turned and zoomed while looking on the app. This one had to be done manually. The picture was super clear though, so that’s a plus. The sound was delayed as well. So if I tried to talk to her, she wouldn’t hear for a little while. And whenever coming close to where she was sleeping, if I had my phone in my hands, it would make a awful noise. Decent monitor but def not worth the price.
I bought this camera about 6 months ago, and really my baby is growing up with this camera. First impression was really awesome, packaging and attention to details impressed me. However, then I started to get little disappointments one by one, mostly caused by camera software. First, I use my iPad as monitor for camera, and their app still doesn’t natively support iPad after all this time, I use iPhone app version (with scaling and inconvenient navigation). But it’s just a minor, comparing to the fact that they keep breaking some core functions with every update. One update broke timeline where activity is displayed (when baby slept or when he wasn’t in crib). Other recent update broke video streaming at all, I couldn’t connect to camera at all. Apart from those updates, I cannot be sure that app is reliable and restart it often. It’s because several times I experienced sound lagging behind video, and in the middle of night we heard voices on video. My wife was insanely scared, but turned out those were our voices, when we were trying to make baby some sleep. Then, I had to turn off sleep safety alerts. For some time they served well, though there were some false alarms. Then my baby started to move more actively while sleeping, and camera started to give me a lot of false positive alerts. Especially when my baby started to prefer sleeping on his side or belly (can’t do anything with it, even if I put him on his back he may turn over immediately). After these 6 months I can say that Cubo team is trying to make it better, but currently I don’t see that they improve their processes. Wish them luck, but really not ready to give more than 3 stars now.
My wife and I were looking for an amazing baby monitor and came across cubo. When we first got it, the packaging was amazing! And well put together in the box. Set up was easy and alerts really do work. I like that I can look at what the alert was telling me. Night vision is amazing quality I can see everything clearly on the monitor. The only problem we run into is the reliability of the camera. The app has constantly not shown the camera or audio. Customer care is always quick to reply and are very head on about fixing the situation. We are trying to be patient but We didn’t buy an almost 200$ camera for it to constantly fail at showing us our 2 month son. I want to tell everyone Incase they are looking for wireless it isn’t other then being able to use the app anywhere you go. When the app is working that is. The cubo also does not have a camera that you can remote control. You set it into one position it doesn’t rotate. I still love cubo and I’m trying to be patient for the camera and audio to work. I hope they fix the issues soon. I would hate to return the quality product over this issue.
I have mixed feelings about this. The internet connection can be pull-out-your-hair frustrating, so set it up in one place and NEVER move it again!!! But I do love the Sleep Analytics because I can figure out what my husband did the night before; it would be nice if Cubo offered historical data though unless you wanna do screenshots every day.
The picture quality, night vision, ability to view on multiple devices, ability to turn off all lights on the device, and setup were all very nice. However, there have been reliability issues with the camera maintaining wifi connection and the app itself. I have tested that I can play video from another device in the same room, so it doesn't seem to be a wifi issue. Overall, it has been mostly good but there's no room for reliability issues on a baby monitor so I would recommend getting one that does not use wifi or buying two monitors if the features on cubo are important to you.
Pros- Camera is pretty good quality. Good view of the crib. The snapshots of your baby now and then are cool. Night light is okay. Could be brighter. Best feature is telling if baby is rolling over or covered. Been pretty accurate so far.
Cons- The quality of the floor stand or crib mount is flimsy but only option for crib. Cubo needs to have a wall mount for more stability. The temperature and humidity only works with the small dock mount that just sits on a shelf which is useless for a crib.
Not able to hear sound clearly from the Cubo camera. Sound quality is crackly and echoing. Camera quality does not fully make out facial features making it hard to see baby during the night. Make sure you have strong WiFi stength and coverage throughout your home otherwise camera and app lag immensely. Ended up needing to amp up WiFi coverage and strength to use this product.
