The video monitor features a 2.4 inch super bright TFT screen, which is powere by a rechargeable Li-on battery that allows hours of portable usage. Boasting a 150 foot indoor range and an impressive 800 foot outdoor reception range1, you will always be connected, no matter where you are in the house. The DXR-5 features all the reliability and intuitive functionality you would expect from Infant Optics.
Loaded with Only the Features You Really Need
Don't pay more for supposed 'added-value' gimmick features you will never use. This baby monitor is designed with simplicity in mind. Not only is it easy to setup and operate, but its affordable price will leave extra money in your pockets that can be spent on your baby instead.
Secure FHSS Data Encryption
Using FHSS technology, each camera securely transmits encrypted video and audio data to your monitor unit. You can rest assured that no one else is viewing your video or audio feed.
Streaming Video Feed at 30 Frames per Second
Surpassing the standards of modern 2.4 GHz video monitors, the DXR-5 features smoothly streaming full-color videoat an impressive rate of 30 frames per second.
2.4" Full-color TFT Screen with Infrared Night Vision
Using invisible infrared light, the DXR-5 allows you to see up to 15 feet in complete darkness. This useful feature toggles on and off for use when you need it.
Convenient Portable Monitoring
The DXR-5 features a long-lasting battery-powered monitor for easy and convenient transport throughout the day. Fitted with a 900mAh Li-on battery, it can operate with or without its power adapter.
"White Noise Eliminator" Module
The DXR-5 features a built-in audio shutoff module designed to eliminate any white noise or static when the sound level is below a predetermined level for 10 seconds. The system reactivates the audio once any noise is detected. You will enjoy better stuff, whilst knowing that your reliable monitor is doing its job. (Feature can be toggled on or off.)
Voice Activated Power Saver Mode (Standby Mode)
In VOX standby mode, you'll save energy, while still being alert. After 3 minutes of quietness2, the energe efficient monitor turns off, conserving electricity and your battery. When the camera detects any sound in this 'standby mode', the unit automatically turns back on. (Feature can be toggled on or off.)
Expandable with Extra Camera Capacity
As your family grows, the DXR-5 can too, supporting up to 4 total camera units simultaneously. Switch through video channels by simply clicking a button on the monitor unit.3
With 3 easy steps, your video monitor will be setup and ready to monitor in just minutes. Simply plug the adapter into the camera and monitor unit, then turn both the units on and you are ready to go. There are absolutely no tedious software setup processes.

Our easy-to-install system includes wall mounting screws, as well as a vertical mounting stand which allows the camera to tilt down from an elevated position.

Top Customer Reviews
The ONE thing I would change would be the beep that happens every time the monitor goes to sleep (after a period of inactivity from the camera view). Even this can be tamed, however, by lowering the over-all volume.
Things I LOVE about this monitor:
-Clear view day and night
- Battery-saving Auto "Sleep" with inactivity
Things I'm not keen on:
-Battery is not a standard size but a camera battery
I've only ever used an audio monitor, but I took a chance on this. I fell in love with it the minute it was hooked up.
Oh, and if you think the viewer's not working when you first set it up, try taking the small lens cover off the camera... LOL.
Thank you for your review. We're glad to let you know that since early 2012, all DXR-5 monitors are fitted with a new firmware without the beeping noise when the unit goes to 'sleep'.
You can also consider our 2016 replacement model Infant Optics DXR-5+ Portable Video Baby Monitor, Blue/White which resolves the 'cheap construction' complaint that you mentioned.

My video shows the night vision feature and how crystal clear it is, but I wanted to add that the monitor shows FULL COLOR as well! To clarify, the monitor is automatically in FULL COLOR, and switches to night vision when it is dark. There is no toggle button or need to switch anything around -- it does it all FOR you (love this monitor!)
UPDATE 9/17/13: I am now going on almost a year of using this monitor, and I still think it's overall a great monitor for the price. The picture is so clear (in day and night). I uploaded a picture of it to the "customer images" section to show just how clear it is--check it out! I recently babysat for my sister who has a Motorola video monitor (sorry, not sure of the exact model) and the picture quality was very grainy. She said she paid twice what I paid for this monitor, so the price is fantastic for the quality. It has great features as well: one is powersave mode where the video screen turns off until there is activity. You can do the same with audio, which is nice if you don't want to listen to the hum of your a/c (or other background noise) all night.Read more ›
When did you make your purchase? All DXR-5 monitors sold after 20th July 2013 are installed with a new firmware that provides a low battery warning before the battery runs out of power.
Subsequently, the monitor also went through another upgrade where all DXR-5 monitors sold after 15th Jan 2014 has a battery life improved by 35% (up to 12 hours with VOX ON).
You can also consider our 2016 replacement model Infant Optics DXR-5+ Portable Video Baby Monitor, Blue/White which resolves all the CONS you've pointed out!
