1. Motorola MBP33S Wireless Video Baby Monitor
I think it’s great. I can see everything very well, I can even see the eyes. The device works perfectly, it has a very good range, for example, take it from a basement garage to a second floor. Night vision works as it should and there is nothing to complain about. And the camera can be perfectly oriented in all directions.
The perfect operation, great video quality, large screen. The zoom or remote camera movement function is fantastic, perfect for controlling a child in the playpen (who could otherwise go out of focus when moving) or older children playing on the ground.
The mic has great sensitivity, in fact, if you put the volume to the maximum you hear the baby breathe effortlessly. The not so good point is the battery that in our case it can be used for two nights and a nap, for example, it is not very well understood that it has such an old generation of battery (it is not lithium-ion). In our case we have gotten used to plugging it in every time we finished using it, so it is no longer a problem.
2. Hello Baby Wireless Video Baby Monitor with Digital Camera
Whether it is used to monitor a baby’s sleep or to watch children playing in the next room, the HelloBaby HB24 has convincing features for both tasks. Although the camera is dependent on a fixed power source, it can be manually rotated completely around its own axis and at the same time tilted 60 degrees forwards or backward. So almost every possible or impossible angle should be adjustable in order to keep an eye on the offspring.
Integrated infrared light-emitting diodes also make it possible to take a look into the children’s room at night without waking up Junior. With up to 12 hours in Vox mode, the base part has a lot of staying power, while the camera unit feeds its functions from the mains. Users appreciate extras such as the room thermometer or the intercom function as a feature that serves to reassure the protégé from a distance.
The image on the receiving monitor is quite bright at night, but motion-controlled recording helps. The monitor only starts up when there is a noise, which also reduces the radiation intensity. A surprise in this price range is the temperature display, with which the sleeping environment can be assessed. The problem, however, is that you receive the battery level warning very late and could not hear it in a noisy environment.
3. Nooie Baby Monitor with Camera
Due to the implemented battery, the monitoring set can be used wirelessly. In addition to an LCD, this baby monitor with a camera also has a night vision function. The mode is activated in the dark and ensures optimum visibility. The baby monitor also includes an alarm clock, which is useful for getting up on time. If you want, you can also make use of the intercom function. This enables communication with the baby and often calms them down without being in the room. The temperature is monitored via the sensors on the device. In this way, consumers know that the offspring are doing well.
The camera automatically records and tracks home movements throughout the entire 360 ° area. The field of view of the Nooie Cam 360 is 101 ° -horizontal rotation of 355 ° … It has a 1080P HD camera lens and two 940nm infrared LEDs. Night vision up to 10 m in the pitch black. Optional status display support.
The camera and app are easy to install, easy to control, and easy to maintain. Compatible with 2.4 GHz WiFi networks. Live streaming is possible with real-time motion and audible alerts. Continuous or motion-detected recording options. It has multiple security protocols to keep your data and privacy safe.
4. Motorola MBP483 2.8″ Video Baby Monitor
The MBP483 baby monitor from Motorola is equipped with a somewhat tight 2.8-inch display that clearly shows the entire baby bed. A zoom function allows a closer look. The picture quality was described as flawless in tests, and the sound is clear and distinct. Unfortunately, the sensitivity of the microphone cannot be adjusted, you can only control the volume.
Overall, the Motorola baby monitor offers good functions, but unfortunately, you will not benefit from them for long. Since the device continuously transmits audio material, the battery is exhausted after around six hours – too little for a whole night. However, the device also works with electricity.
The baby unit has a night light that can only be operated on the parent unit, and lullabies can also be played or paused from there. The device quickly reaches the limits of its range, which manifests itself in noticeable dropouts in the video flow. In addition, the motorized camera drives the price up too much for our taste.
5. HelloBaby HB65 Baby Monitor with Remote Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera
The baby monitor is easy to use and has long charging cables so that it can be placed flexibly. The parent unit has a battery and is therefore not permanently tied to a cable. The camera is on immediately when the cable is plugged in. Then only the parent unit has to be switched on with a button and the devices connect automatically. In addition, the camera device can be rotated on a tripod.
The display is colored and the devices are controlled by the push of a button from the parent unit. The camera can rotate and move up and down. This means that the entire room can be recorded 360 ° and the camera can be rotated from floor to ceiling. You can also zoom in on the image.
The HelloBaby HB65 video baby monitor is equipped with a comprehensive package of functions: The camera can be set to numerous angles, eight lullabies can be programmed and there is a temperature sensor. The image is a bit grainy and the sound is slightly distorted. At least in this case the device warns the user. The price is cheap and the purchase is appropriate if you do not have to cover greater distances.
6. Philips AVENT DECT Baby Monitor 580
Philips is one of the few baby monitors whose use is not limited to being close to an electrical outlet. Both modules have long power cables and can also be operated with batteries, for example outdoors. The users critically appreciate two aspects: The charging station is considered unstable and the battery charging time is inappropriately long. That is rare: the device delivers an impeccable sound impression even with two-way communication. It sounds crystal clear, undistorted, and surprisingly noise-free up to the higher volume levels.
Buyers also praised the fact that the Philips registers every sigh or breath of the baby – a recommendation for parents of very quiet or sick babies. The bundle of functions is well set up apart from the actual monitoring task, i.e. you get a number of additional functions that are not absolutely necessary, but are reasonable for the price. E.g. you can act on the child remotely or adjust the microphone sensitivity to your baby and the volume to the environment.
Whether humidity, room temperature, or noise display when muted – on the handpiece you always have an eye on the sleeping environment and activities of your baby. Anyone who takes the functions seriously as a whole will be disappointed: thermometers and hygrometers do not work precisely enough to be able to replace separate measuring devices.
7. Philips AVENT DECT Baby Monitor SCD720/86
If you take the device out of the packaging for the first time, you will not only see the two receivers and the associated power packs but also two AA (mignon cell) batteries. They are intended for the parent unit, have a capacity of 1,300 mAh, and can be charged in the device. So you can leave them in there permanently. We couldn’t get disconnected because the house was simply not big enough to be that far away. Four floors of the old building with lots of walls, ceilings, and numerous WLAN transmitters in between grabbed the baby monitor without a murmur. In order to actually build up enough distance, one would have to leave the property.
We think it’s great that not only the parent unit but also the baby station can be operated with batteries and thus also away from the socket. This requires four AA batteries, which are not included and have to be purchased separately. In addition to setting the language, time, and microphone sensitivity, the night light integrated with the baby device can also be controlled or a lullaby can be played.
The latter two functions can also be activated on the baby unit, but here by pressing the corresponding button. The device has seven of them, all of which are clearly identified by pictograms and have a very good pressure point. The bobble with the thermometer peeks out from the back of the device.
8. Philips AVENT DECT SCD501 Baby Monitor
The Philips Avent SCD501 / 00 is a predecessor of the SCD503 / 26 and shares many of its features. For example, it runs exclusively in network operation. This doesn’t have to be a problem in many situations, but battery operation is extremely useful on the go. In addition, the sensitivity of the microphone cannot be adjusted on the SCD501 / 00. The SCD501 / 00, on the other hand, can shine once more with its good sound reproduction.
As is typical for Avent, it transmits in the DECT frequency band and also shows no noticeable difference to its sister models in terms of range. In terms of the very good workmanship, the model does not show any nakedness. The night light is switched on and off with a button on top of the transmitter, and it is gently dimmed
The SCD501 / 00 makes a major blunder when it comes to the power supply because even if you use rechargeable batteries instead of normal batteries, they are not charged by the device-
