I bought this baby monitor as a baby shower gift for my sister, who was expecting her first child. She's now been using it for 10 weeks and is absolutely loving it. She accesses the remote feed and notifications etc from an iPhone 6s Plus, while her husband uses an Android phone. Utilising their own phones makes perfect sense, since they're always carrying them anyway and these days phones screens are at least 1080p.
As a new mum, she's obviously been very nervous and worried about continuously making sure her newborn is ok. Her feedback is that it's been a godsend being able to continuously or frequently remote monitor not only her newborn, but also the conditions in the room in which her newborn is sleeping.
I performed the setup for her, which was very easy, and there haven't been any connectivity issues whatsoever. Video quality is really good (she runs 1080p), both in visible light and infrared. The audio pick up is good and the notification system works well for her when movement and noise is detected. So far there are only positives to report!
With the monitor being an internet-connected device, the only additions I'd like to see are related to security/privacy. I'm sure the software is already very secure (and I assigned an epic password), however, for added piece of mind it would be great if;
(i) the primary user (a designated admin account) could receive a push notification whenever somebody else accesses the live feed. This would let you know whether somebody else is accessing the feed, whether it's a proud grandparent/aunt/uncle, or something more nefarious, such as somebody having gained access without your knowledge. And these accesses should be logged for reviewing by the admin account if desired.
(ii) it would be great if in a future version there was a way of occluding specific viewing areas. That is, many women breastfeed in a chair in the same room that the baby sleeps in, or the baby's crib is in the parent's bedroom. So, it would be great if some sort of plastic add-on could be attached to the non-swivelling part of the base and then positioned, as desired, to physically block the view of the camera towards certain segments of the room (ie the chair or bed). That way, users could have complete confidence of video privacy in certain areas of the room, whether from other family members that have remote access logins, such as I do, or from hackers, in the unlikely event that the live video feed is hacked.
Overall, highly recommended and a great gift for a loved-one expecting a baby.
Good resolution, good night vision, easy to use, pictures and videos are great.
The eyeball can be a bit creepy in the room. Our 10 month old baby recognises it as a watching device somehow and will try to grab it sometimes.
Alerts are useful, but occasionally annoying (there is a short refractory period on the alarm - it will sound every minute or so if it is still being stimulated).
Alerts are also not good if multiple people need to use the device (eg parents, baby sitters) as the alerts seem to trigger on every device that the app is installed on at the same once alerts are turned on.
There is no option to monitor silently, then turn on sound if an alert tiggers (like most non wifi monitors). Listen function is always on or off; there is constant static if the listen function is on.
Wall mount seems unreasonably expensive and a bit of a cash grab.
Very easy to set up but needed a travel adaptor. Got a cheap one from Bunnings. Video and audio quality good. Sometimes the drag option on my phone to move angle of camera is not responsive straight away. Sometimes video is a bit laggy. Often makes clicking noises (I think regularly taking still images for backup?) So consider this if you might be annoyed by sound. My husband loves connecting to check on baby from work during day.
