Well, I'm thinking that it's just me and O'Sullivan who are the only people to have been suckers enough to actually pay for this. Everyone else in the world seems to have received a free one through Amazon Vine.

The battery life in the monitor and camera is appalling. Both need to be constantly plugged in.

The range is ok but not great. Certainly, not as far as claimed.

Picture quality is good enough to see the kid but the photo thing is a pointless gimmick.

The biggest and by far the most annoying thing is the Skype feature. It shuts down constantly which is irritating but far worse is that it literally cripples the home network & internet speed. Now, I have good enough internet speed at home (around the 10MB mark). Normally we can have 2 tv's watching Netlfix/Hulu someone happily browsing the internet and also someone on Skype, all at the same time with no complaints. Plug this piece of junk into the network and say goodbye to broadband speeds and go back to an era sometime before dial-up.

Do not waste your money on the extra box for skype just get the regular monitor and camera. Get the cheapest one you can find as they're all a bit rubbish... "Viners" seem to get the best bang for their buck and if I got this free I'd be happy, too. At $200+, not so happy!

If I could give it a -1 star, I would. We bought 3 cameras and one monitor. One camera and monitor worked ok and I could connect via Skype for about a week. Then out of nowhere I couldn't connect via Skype. The monitor only works when plugged in, and it seems like it's constantly charging. And we were never able to connect the other two cameras to the network. My husband and I are pretty savvy with technology so we tried everything under the sun, researched options online and what makes this experience most frustrating is that we have NOT been able to get a hold of Lorex customer service. We left messages, sent emails, and each time we call we're "caller number 3x". It's impossible to get a hold of a human being to walk us through what needs to be done. Unless the equipment we got is faulty, I am shocked that there are positive reviews about the Lorex LIVE. Ugh!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The package comes with everything you need to set up the camera. 3 power cords (one for the camera, one for the gateway, and one for the handheld unit), network cable, camera, screws to mount the camera, and 1GB micro SD card.

Setup was reasonably easy and took about 30 minutes. Since you'll be using Skype to call into the camera system, you'll have to register 2 Skype accounts, one for your personal (that you call from) and one for the gateway system that operates the camera (that you'll call to). You'll also need to install the Skype software on the PC that is connected to the network that runs the camera system. I had some difficulty understanding how to get the 2 accounts going on my iPhone, but the instructions were good enough that I was able to figure it out.

Once it was up and running, I used the Skype app on my iPhone to view the camera. It connects about 65% of the time, but the video image takes up to 30 second to display once the connection is made. Several times it would connect, but the video image failed to load and then disconnected. Other times it would drop the call all together. I also had issues with calls ending at random times once they connect, sometimes lasting for a few minutes then dropping, other times just a few seconds. I found this to be very annoying and made the device quite frustrating. This was all done over my internal WiFi network at home, so I would have anticipated that the connection reliability would have been the best possible.

Image quality is so-so (quite a bit of pixelation, but good enough to see what's going on) . The camera doesn't much care for fast movements and seems to be running about 3-4 frames per second.

We purchased this when our Lorex LW2003 handset broke after 3 years of daily use. Unfortunately our LW2003 cameras are not compatible with the LW2031 and this was not readily evident on this product listing, but the reason why we are going to be returning it is that the sound is awful. Very tinny, hard to comprehend. The picture quality is nice and the ability to see the video on Skype is a nice little touch, though I am not sure I would really use that feature much. Would be great for those that want to monitor their pets more then their babies.

The one feature that I sorely missed from the Lorex LW2003 is the ability to talk through the handset to the camera. It is just priceless to tell your child to get back into bed through the camera and watch them run across the room and dive into the bed. No more yelling up the stairs running the risk of wakening the other beasts that have already fallen asleep. The LW2031 does not have this intercom feature.

In the end I would stick with the Lorex LW2003 while they are still available and by then I hope Lorex improves the sound quality and adds back the intercom feature.

Very disappointed in this monitor
