Not safe enough....which defeats the object,
This review is from: The Clarity Digital Video Monitor by Lindam (Baby Product)While the picture clarity is very good and interference is kept at a minimum, this monitor is missing 2 basic things:
1) It does not get "activated" easy enough. Long story short, it requires a good amount of sound before the receiver actually transmits it. So if your newborn is crying its heart out, you will hear it just fine. But if it is only making light sounds (as newborns do) you will be kept in the dark. This - for me - was the most important defect.
2) While the advertised range may be 100+ meters (I wouldn't know) the "effective" range is much, much shorter. When I have the receiver two rooms over from the transmitter, it loses signal.
Unfortunately I don't have the luxury of returning this product as I bought it in the UK and I live in Cyprus. However, I will be purchasing another Summer Infant unit. I have had one for 2 years for my other daughter and it has been working flawlessly. I am still kicking myself for deciding to try something new....
