If you’ve ever been close to a newborn baby you recognize that they can be very demanding. They need to be fed every couple hours, without caring who’s attempting to sleep. They want held and comforted. They may well run a fever, or be teething, or simply cranky for a few unknown cause. All of those issues might be daunting. Specially since you are the parent and are close to it twenty four hrs a day.
There’s a button that allows me to turn the video feed on and off (although the sound is always “on.”) I don’t use it, but it might be useful to some.
A Baby Monitor. This is more of a luxury item but it is also good to have. Keep in mind that babies may not make a sound when they are choking so you will still need to check on them. A infant optics dxr-8 is also a great thing to have when the child becomes a toddler and sleeps in their own room, it will offer a comfort of knowing that they are safe.
The MBP28 will pick up a signal up to 490′ (149m) away. The MBP36 can pick up a signal as far as 650′ (200m) away. In both cases, you will have a better range if there is less interference from thick walls, other wireless devices and the like.
Video: Of course the video is the big plus for this monitor. It is not just a fuzzy picture of something that resembles your baby. It is a clear color picture. In night mode, it is a black and white picture, though still very clear. You can see every move your child makes. It also has an auto-shut off mode for the video image to save the battery life.
For convenient placement, the hand-held unit can be placed on the included flip stand. There’s also a belt clip on the back of the unit. Like the LCD monitor, you can connect this unit to a larger TV using the AV output.
It falls into the category of baby video monitors. It has a 2.5″ color video monitor and a secure and clear transmission. The digital color monitor is on a handheld unit so you can actually carry it with you everywhere you go in your home.
