To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Get what you pay for - it works, it has good range and it’s easy to set up.
Picture and video quality however is poor - to the extent that zooming in when on night mode just gives you a blurry splodgy mess.
Had same problems as another reviewer that having receiver or camera within a couple of metres of a WiFi device completely trashes that device’s WiFi connectivity. Same effect on phones and on “smart TVs”
Bought this as a panic buy when on holiday and realised had left our Motorola MBP49 at home - it did a job and got us through the holiday but definitely wouldn’t want it as our main one
Generally a good monitor. However, the lead on the parent unit split after 4 months leaving expired wires. Tried to resolve issue with Hello Baby. They did not have replacement adapter leads but offered a 99% discount for a new monitor set initially in exchange for a positive review to be screen shot and set to them. I refused to do this and they blamed the idea on a student who has just graduated from college. The code showed as expired when I used it. Company gave me another discount code but same thing happened. Pretty poor after sales customer service 🙄
We bought this to replace our Motorola monitor which suddenly died a death last week and so far it’s proved to be much better. The picture is very clear both day and at night, the temperature is way more accurate, the sound off is completely silent, I’m not used to having a battery that lasts for more than 20 minutes but so far so good with this one, so far I’ve had it unplugged for 3 hours and the battery display didn’t drop at all. Great value for the price.
Only tried it for about 15-20 mins so far, picture quality is excellent in daytime mode, sensors for night vision are a bit sensitive and night vision quality isn't as great as day time (but this isn't a big deal and it is good enough).
Bought this as a way to keep an eye on my grandma from another room if I have stuff to do after she suffered a stroke. Score could change and review might be subject to change if anything goes wrong.
Not sure why people have had such issues with theirs, I feel like for the price paid in comparison to some of the other brands it's a good little bit of kit and ultimately it's only meant to be there as a way to monitor occasionally.
Good camera the night vision is excellent but almost too good , it's extremely bright even on brightness level on lowest setting. Only problem with the monitor itself is that it's allergic to other electrical items it sticks does the sound , day you're sending an email on phone or laptop or downloading it will stick continuously between sound and breaking sound also the picture sometimes glitches when this happens .
My budget does not stretch to a lot of the well known brands of baby monitors on the market so I always strive to find a more pocket friendly alternative and chose this one. It had all the requirements I needed, screen, night vision, talk back and music function and even a moving camera option (far more fancy than those I've had in the past!). I am super impressed. Picture quality is brilliant compared to the one I purchased for my middle child last year (again on a budget and a different brand to this one) and as that one has now broken (speaker malfunction) I came back to buy this one a second time because I like it more. I only gave four stars for battery life as I have not been able to test this out as only had my current unit for a few weeks and use it mains powered for the most part so can't really comment. Everything else is great for what I need it for, easy to set up and use, clear picture (night vision used the most) and sound quality. Can't wait to set up my second unit and I believe from reading the instructions you can link the two but will see how that goes as I am not very techy.
I purchased this with hesitance after seeing some of the reviews. However, I'm glad I purchased it. It does what it's meant to. Battery life is great, I can take it about unplugged for hours at night whilst baby is in bed. The day and night picture is clear and sound is good too. Definitely worth the price and recommend.
