Hard pass. These things were built in the 1940s? No night vision lens. No 8k recording. No Alexa reading the kid a bedtime story. Can't accurately transmit tones under 20Hz. No Apple logo. No antispyware programs installed. Can't do 5g over WiFi. Lame.

Just kidding. These are cute.

We've been using a similar unit to this for my daughter for past 5yrs. We used a camera + this for first few years, then moved on to just audio for night time calls 😀

Folks do yourself a favour don't get this. Get video please
Yeah, but some people don't have wifi. Others are afraid of the video ones getting hacked (this unfortunately does happen). There are many reasons that some people would want audio only.

In 4 1... currently have 2 of them but the 3 year old one is having issues so time to replace.

We pair these with Wyze cameras and only log in if we hear crying. We have some video monitors but we prefer the wyze since it doubles as a nanny cam system when we are not home.

Video is for first time helicopter parents who want to wake up at 3 am to make sure a 3 week old didn't roll over... I know I was married to one until baby number 2. Your either the type to let the kid cry it out or the type to go running either way you can tell everything u need from an audio monitor.

For $20 rather buy a Wyze camera. It has video and night vision. It also has motion detection with facial recognition so you can get alerts when you baby is moving

those are pretty useless. i am trying to save you a few dollar here.
i jumped on the similar deal posted a while back thinking it would be helpful. well. it is completely garbage. your infant will likely be making noise all the time, and this just forces you to check on the infant all the time, which beg question, why having those at all?
what you need is a HD video feed so you can actually check whether your infant need your immediate care or not without having to stop whatever you doing.
You can set a threshold on the mic pickup so unless. My 2 year old can sit and talk in his room all he wants and I don't hear a word, but when he calls out daddy! I hear him.

you don't need wifi to get video. I bought one from Amazon before my 1st little one was born and it's worth it. I would simply not waste money on audio ones and get video.

different use cases i suppose, i won't call a 2 year old infant. an infant doesn't know how to speak and noise is all they make.

i am coming from the point that you need to keep an eye on your infant due to SIDS, which is biggest problem for infant death and is the reason why health care provider require you to keep an eye on them. if you infant is experiencing SIDS, they won't make a sound in the process, which render those baby monitor completely useless.

oh, and those video monitor systems come with their own WIFI and only work in the close range, you don't connect them to internet if you don't want to. the audio and video stays with you

I got a video system. It went down periodically, required an app, cost 10x as much, and confused my in laws.

You get this because it is dead simple. Those bells and whistles are fine if everyone in your family and your babysitter is tech savvy. If not, just get something idiot proof like this.

My only complaint is that the buttons are in a dumb arrangement. I don't want to have to figure out which feather-shaped button is the power in the dark at 1 AM.

Video monitoring doesn't prevent SIDS, following best practices from the doctor (placing the baby on their back, clearing the crib of toys and stuffed animals) helps. Even then, it's not 100%. The only way video monitoring helps is if you were literally looking at it at all times..
