Q: How is the night vision?

submitted by Scooba - 6 years ago
  • A: Night vision feature is really good. Our baby is four months and we’ve had zero issues with it.

    submitted byOsu123 - 6 years ago
  • A: It’s great we tried other monitors but this one works the best. Would recommend.

    submitted byOsu123 - 6 years ago

    submitted byMrs - 6 years ago
  • A: I have this product and I’m not aware of an app for the baby monitor.

    submitted byOsu123 - 6 years ago

Q: Is it true that when u register it you get a free extra camera??

submitted by Beth - 6 years ago
  • A: This should be a tell-tale sign that they are boosting reviews immediately after purchase because if you've owned it for longer than 6 months, its garbage.

    submitted byBlaze - 5 years ago
  • A: I received one if I completed a review. It is super great having 2 once the baby started moving around in the crib

    submitted byEricka Z - 5 years ago

Q: Does this monitor have sound? First-time, soon-to-be mommy here and worried that we won't be able to hear baby with this monitor. Thanks in advance for your help!

submitted by KristinaJ - 6 years ago
  • A: You can hear well. However, the microphone has a constant white noise sound you hear from the monitor side. It is way louder than your children and drowns them out. It's awful. I wish they would get a better speaker that only pics up your children! Huge flaw

    submitted byMjheat - 3 years ago
  • A: Yes it has sound. You can hear everything with this monitor. It has several volume settings, but we just keep it on the highest setting. I can hear perfectly when our baby moves, etc. Its a good camera.

    submitted byOsu123 - 6 years ago

Q: Does this have a function where you can turn screen off and use it as an audio monitor?

submitted by swimlat - 6 years ago
  • A: Yes, there’s a button on top of the baby monitor to turn the screen off but keep the audio on. It saves about 50% of the battery.

    submitted byOsu123 - 6 years ago
  • A: They do have a sleep mode, you can short press the power on/off/sleep button to turn the LCD screen off while keeping the audio on.

    submitted byPnymom - 6 years ago

Q: I am not sure what type of battery this includes, bought as a gift and want to take it on an airplane. Will I HAVE ANY PROBLEMS HAVING THIS IN MY BAG?

I’m on my third infant optics monitor in 5 years. They barely make it past the 1 year mark before breaking in one way or another. No wonder they only have a one year warranty. I stupidly kept buying new monitor units since the actual cameras still work. Be smart from the beginning and do NOT buy this monitor at all.

A - 18 days ago
After upgrading to the DXR-8 Pro I can definitely say - if you can splurge the extra 50 ish bucks, do it! This camera works for what it is but by the time we upgraded the antenna was falling apart, it was constantly losing connection and both charging cords were completely busted. The price difference between the two isn’t astronomical and this camera is completely bare bones compared to the pro.

Love our monitor. Had it for over 3 years now. Bought an add on additional camera when we had our second child. Had to get a replacement monitor and camera though as both stopped working. Could be from dropping too many times. However customer service was helpful and super responsive. I was out of warranty and received a 50% discount on monitor replacement and a received the camera replacement for free! Really considerate representatives who followed up as well to ensure everything was working. Fast shipping of replacement as well! Couldn’t be more pleased

Anna - 25 days ago, Verified purchaser
Ridiculous price for what it is! Super basic monitor, charge lasts about 3 hours. Picture and audio are semi clear, nothing great. After 14 months (conveniently just outside the warranty period), the microphone on the camera went out so it’s useless. Can’t believe how much I paid for this looking back… there are much cheaper options on Amazon that have all the same features. Would not recommend.

After 1 year, wouldn’t hold a charge. Changed out the charger, that worked for a few more months, now it will not hold a charge at all, has to be plugged in a certain way or just constantly shuts up. Buying a different brand and will never use this brand again.

Monitor Stopped Working

Monitor Stopped Working - 2 months ago
I received this monitor from my Baby Registry & loved this monitor for a long time. I even bought a second camera for my next child. Unfortunately, after 3 years the monitor just stopped working. The screen is completely black, won't turn on. I even tried a replacement battery & it still will not work. I contacted customer service & they said that the warranty is only good for 1 year & that I can't get a replacment. I feel that for the cost of this product & buying another camera, a 1 year warranty isn't adequate. The replacment cost for a monitor is $99, which is also very expensive. With the amount of money I've already put in, I will not be buying another replacement monitor in fear that it could just stop working again.

Our monitor has worked fine for almost a year when the audio quit working. However, I emailed the customer service team for Infant Optics and Gladys and team were extremely helpful. They are very responsive and even followed up with me after receiving my new monitor from the warranty we had. For the price, quality, and customer service — you cannot beat this one.

Man's voice on our monitor

Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
Target Diva - 4 months ago
We received this monitor as a gift, as it was on our baby registry. Prior to a few days ago we loved it. Unfortunately, while changing my daughter I heard a deep voice-which sounded like a man, say hello. I asked who said that and immediately unplugged the camera. My daughter was scrapping a toy on the wall right before the person spoke. We wanted this monitor because we thought it could not be hacked. A simple google search revealed parents on reddit sharing the same experience of a man saying hello and/or the camera moving. I will be contacting the manufacturer. I would not wish this on any parent, my baby isn’t old enough to tell me if someone has been talking to her. We may be done with monitors now.

ecarpenter - 5 months ago
This was purchased for us off of our registry. This monitor has a lot of features we like but stopped working after less than a year of use. The parent unit completely stopped working. Because it was purchased over a year ago for my baby shower, infant optics won’t replace the unit despite it being used for less than a year. Really disappointing since I picked this one because you can add additional camera for future children. I will never purchase an infant optics monitor again.

The night vision isn’t the best which is the main reason you’d want the monitor. The battery also dies very quickly and the range isn’t great. I’d recommend looking into different options
