Overall impressive monitor
I was unsure about this monitor at first because I didn't know if I'd like having it connected to my phone and not having a separate viewing monitor. However, it has some great features that take place of having a separate viewing monitor. First, I like that when I am downstairs I don't have to worry about having a separate device, since my phone is pretty much always near me. I can go outside and still have a great view without losing any "range" like a traditional monitor. Second, I love the notifications and that it records "baby moments" so I can see what the movement or noise was if i wasn't watching. It is really sensitive to sound and has picked up noises from the hallway, but that can be adjusted for day and then heightened again at night really easily. Third, set up was super easy, but the instructions were unclear if my boyfriend and I had to set up our own accounts or just use one to get it on our individual phones. I have only had one issue connecting to the camera due to my other kids using WiFi heavily at the same time, but that was a rare issue and wouldn't be happening at night or during the day when school is in session. Even when I had an issue connecting, it still recorded the "baby moment" movements and sounds and I could view those with no problem, so I didn't miss anything. I love the sound unit too, so I can have that right next to my bed and can talk through it easily. The design is very sleek and modern, which I love, as well. Last, I love the wide range the camera allows. I can view my child's entire room with ease, which is great with my toddler, but, of course, when the new baby arrives it will be focused closer on him. I can also move the camera to the main areas to use as security too when we aren't home, which I thought added to it's value.
