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!
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.Read more ›
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
