Works great until it fails. No response from lindam.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Clarity Digital Video Monitor by Lindam (Baby Product)
We bought this in November 2010 to keep an eye on our baby who was prone to vomiting in his cot.
Initially it worked great. We did find that a lot of light 'leaked' from the camera unit, so we used some black tape to cover up some of the holes. Otherwise it glowed very bright in a dark room! We also found the melody music, while very useful to calm jr when he was agitated, was far too loud. With no volume adjust possible we stuck a felt pad over the speaker grill which works perfectly to dampen the sound lvel. So our camera unit now looks quite 'interesting' with our customizations but its still working perfectly to this day.
However we've had two problems with the receiver unit. First the leg stand, as is common with everyone elses it seems, stopped working after a while. The unit is unable to freely stand without this. Combined with the relativity poor viewing angle of the screen (compared to an iphone for example) means you usually have to prop it up against something.
The big problem happened when the charging socked on the receiver unit stopped working. It seems the pin has fallen out thus rendering the unit useless. We tried to contact lindam uk via email and twitter with no response. We did notice that the battery is same as in an old nokia 6230i. Hence we now use this to charge the battery everyday. Not ideal!
All in all very disappointed with the lack of response from Lindam. Certainly wont be buying another lindam product again.
