We have had nothing but problems with this monitor to the point we've stopped using it. The video is often choppy even when we're just in the next room and the signal shows full bars. The battery life is terrible and rarely lasts more than 30 minutes without being charged. It is terror inducing when it powers on and shows the last stored image rather than the current image which is often an empty crib. Often times I would hear my baby from down the hall and the image on the monitor was of him sleeping soundly and no noise coming from the monitor, only to realize the image was frozen and needed to turn it off and back on again to reconnect. Our package was missing the kick stand so it has to either lay flat or be propped up which makes keeping an eye on the screen when you're in the middle of another task difficult. Low light is practically impossible to get a good view unless it's dark enough to kick in the night mode, there's no way to manually prompt it to switch. And it's inconsistent with how to power it down often causing the receiver to beep loudly until you can figure out how to get it to actually turn off all the way. Don't waste your money.
This was purchased to be used with a senior with dementia, we needed to hear when she woke or called us. 16 hour initial charge seemed long for a charge that doesn't last more then a day.
It seems to go out of range and neither part has been moved from where they were placed. We leave the parent 1 in the living room which is a direct line to the bedroom, same floor. The lady who has the child end in the room with her can't always be heard, she can't reach it so we know she's not moving/hiding it.
It claims to have a 990 ft. range, I can't see it working near that distance as 50 ft approximately it doesn't always work.
