After lots of research I’m glad I picked this one!

Let me start this review by saying I took over a year and a half to find a video monitor I liked at a good price.
So if you’re overwhelmed by choices and features I know how you feel and this is the review for you!
I wasn’t going to bother with a video monitor as the audio only one we had was doing the job, but now that my kid is bigger there’s the worry that he might climb out of the crib or get up to mischief. So finally I decided that after looking at video monitors since before he was born, I’d commit to getting one.
The features are the most important thing for me so here’s what I liked:
Excellent night vision.
Ability to move camera around.
Ability to talk to baby, or ‘shush’ them back to sleep.
Doesn’t use an internet connection.
Easy to use.
Screen on parent unit can be turned off if needed.
Parent unit good size but not too big.
Good battery life on parent unit.
Here’s what I didn’t like as much:
Doesn’t have a clock feature.
The stand on the parent unit is at a bit of a low angle meaning I have to tilt the unit towards me to look at it in bed.
Cord for camera could have been a bit longer as I think most people are going to use the camera on a shelf up high out of baby reach.
Overall I am happy with this monitor and glad I chose it. The price was great and the pros far outweigh any issues, which to be honest I really had to stretch for.
I would recommend this monitor to friends and family for sure!
**My review is edited because I originally wrote that I was dissapointed that the mic is always open, but I’ve played with the settings more and it actually does have a noise sensitivity setting! Woo!
