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.)

Infant Optics DXR-5 reacts to baby crying
When in standby power-saving mode, a single sound will turn the DXR-5 monitor back on, automatically.
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.)

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

Quick Setup

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.

Easy to Setup Anywhere

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.

1Optimum range is 150 feet when signal is passing through thick walls or floors. Microwave ovens (when in use) can cause signal disruption at close range. Buildings with metal frames may also cause signal disrutption. 800 foot transmission range achievable in open area without obstructions.

2When sound level is below 60 decibels for 3 minutes, the monitor will automatically switch to standby mode.

3Camera units cannot be paired to multiple monitor units.

Customer Reviews

Using it now for 2 month and for me works great.
With the volume set at its highest I could barely hear the baby cry and it picked up no movement sounds.
It's great to be able to keep an eye on the baby and see if she's really sleeping or not!
Amie and David Allen

I had two concerns when purchasing this baby monitor. I was worried that the rather bright night light in my daughter's room would obscure the ability of the night vision monitor, and I was also worried that the price was lowered because they had found this to be an inferior product. Neither of these has been a problem. I did notice the "cheap plastic feeling" of the casing that other people mentioned in their reviews, but for one third the normal price on Amazon, I was more than willing to look past this. I'm interested to see how long it holds up. I've only had this product for a short while, but I'm moving the monitor around a lot already- we'll see how long the clip lasts. As for the night vision, it seems to be a transitional night vision, allowing anything in the light to remain bright, without obscuring the night vision's ability to clearly make out everything in its view.

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
-Clear audio
-Private channel
- 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.

An overview of the great features of this monitor with great detail to the fantastic picture quality! This monitor is the greatest and it is SO DURABLE -- a must for a house with a toddler! Easy to mount, easy to use, virtually no set-up required. This monitor is a DREAM!

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!)

This monitor is not perfect, but you will find that every video monitor on the market has mixed reviews. This monitor is no exception, but is very affordable and works well. It's biggest flaw in my opinion is the fact that the unit gives no audible warning when the battery is dying. I discovered this the hard way one night when I woke up to find the monitor off and my child awake and crying (who knows for how long!). This is a huge product flaw. The audio monitor I had for my first child beeped loudly over and over when the batteries were dying and certainly was enough to wake me up before it died completely. Every monitor needs this feature. The other issue with this monitor is that the battery life is pretty bad. So, it's extremely important to have the unit plugged in before going to bed. Other than that, the unit is great. The video works great and is clear and the sound works well too. It's a great price for a video monitor and the flaws that I have found can be worked around, so get it!

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.

Hi Kristy,
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).

I decided on another video baby monitor as I am expecting a third child. I used to own a summer infant video monitor that I bought from babies r us but it broke down after my 3 year old decided to throw the monitor into the sink. I was not prepared to pay another 200 dollars so I shopped online for alternatives. I got this on amazon (because of the price) and this product is great. I was prepared to return it if it was crap, (which cheap products are usually online...)
Pros: The VOX setting activates only when it registers loud noises (like cries) and it doesn't inadvertently turn on due to loud traffic noises (unlike my old baby monitor).
price, the price is unbelievable for a monitor with video, and static-free
video and audio quality - I can not complain. It is far better than my old monitor.
interference - it works fine with our wifi and 2.4ghz cell phone
presentation - comes in nice gift box and cute design
range - I can leave the camera in the nursery and be in the kitchen (around 300 feet away) and I still get reception
no background noise - the monitor cuts the background noise when there is no sound and becomes totally quiet. My old unit always had this constant clicking sound even when it was dead quiet.

Cons: the material falls below what I wanted, but for the price it makes up for everything. It's uses a light weight plastic material which is good and bad because it is nearly weightless when you strap this on your waist when you are moving around in the house.
features - I wished for a pan and tilt camera but this doesn't have it.

Verdict; if you are looking for something that works well and doesn't give you any problems, this is it. if you are looking for a high-tech baby monitor, this isn't what you are looking for.
