A positive experience - good monitor via your iphone/ipad; with just a couple of drawbacks
on 1 July 2013
I have actually had a really positive experience with this monitor.
Straightforward to set up via the app - needs attached to router only for set up, not for ongoing use unlike some reviews have said - both the first time and when visiting parents home.
Great picture quality, decent audio (nb monitor to iPhone/iPad only, does not do return audio without external speakers)
Works fine over 3G for when out of home. Images are slower (5 or so per sec) rather than the smooth video you get on wifi but that's down to my phone connection speed rather than the device.
Infrared at night is very clear
With audio on it really does churn through battery
Alerts are loud and annoying. We don't use the audio alerts or movement alerts (sensitivity can be configured if you want to) but just leave the video on screen with audio on from the room and that works fine for us
We are really happy with ours and it's way better than our friends' video monitors. You have your phone with you all the time anyway, so using it as a baby monitor makes perfect sense. It isn't perfect, but it is a good product which works very well for us.
