Motorola MBP25-2 Wireless 2.4 GHz Video Baby Monitor with Two Cameras
The MBP25-2 is a wireless video baby monitor by Motorola that enables you to keep an eye on things in multiple rooms of your home. The convenient two-way communication feature allows you to communicate with your little ones without being in the same room. This video monitor also showcases a 2.4" full color LCD screen, zoom functionality, and infrared night vision for keeping an eye on things in very low light levels. With this sophisticated video camera combo, you're free to watch them dream.
2.4GHz FHSS Wireless Technology
The MBP25-2's 2.4GHz FHSS technology offers a more reliable wireless connection compared to older wireless technologies. Upgraded wireless technology means much better range and less chance of missing something important happening in the home due to a weak or dropped signal.
Color LCD Screen with Infrared Night Vision
On the MBP25-2, a full-color 2.4" LCD display with LED sound level indicator shows real-time video and the level of sound activity in your baby's room so you can keep informed of what's going on visually as well as audibly. Infrared night vision means you can stay in touch with what's going in your baby's room without any lights to disturb little sleepers.
Convenient Two-Way Communication
Two-way communication allows you to speak or sing to your baby remotely, or to communicate with a partner in the room.
"Out-of-Range" and "Low Battery" Alerts
Stay connected to the action up to 520 feet away. An alarm sounds on the MBP25-2 when you're getting out of range of the transmitting unit, so you'll never have to wonder if you're close enough to hear what's going on. A low battery alert sounds when it's time to recharge the battery.

The 2 cameras came already paired up with the parent unit. The day camera view is crisp and in color. The night/dark mode is black & white (as expected), and although I adjusted the brightness up a few notches, but didn't need to max it out in order to get a really decent picture of my toddler in his black-out curtained room, with the camera pointed at his bed at a distance of 8 feet. Now, the video on this is not as crisp as the daytime camera, but I can clearly view whether he is awake or asleep, his positioning, and distinguish him easily from his bedding. This was NOT my experience with other cameras. There's a little pixelation in the viewing feed, if I was going to be picky about it, but not nearly enough to make me unhappy with the quality of the picture.
- Video performs in different capacities -- up close and across the room. This was my main trouble with most other monitors, they seemed to be made only for viewing within 3-4 feet of the subject.
- Easy scanning feature between cameras is going to be awesome when the baby gets here. I'm glad they made a shortcut button on the parent unit for this. You can cycle through the cameras manually, or set the parent unit to switch camera feeds automatically every 8 seconds or so. NICE. It's a feature I see on higher-end models, but find so convenient on this unit.
- Talk-back feature is an option. I'm not sure how much I will use this, to be honest, but it's there if I needed it.
- Ability to turn off the video while audio stays active, and the sound-bar lights alert.
- Ability to turn the volume all the way down (mute) with the video feed still active. Sometimes I don't need to hear the babbling of the toddler, if I can see he's fine.
- The cord for charging the parent unit is a decent length, letting it rest on my nightstand beside my bed and be plugged in a ways away. I also find the cords to the cameras to be acceptable in length.
- I haven't experienced any loss of signal. Our house, however, is not large (1650 sq. ft).
- Zoom feature - picture resolution degrades a bit after the digital zoom, but being able to pan in this mode is useful and available.
- The audio is clear. Clearer than my Angelcare audio/movement monitor sounds at this point, after 3 years.
- Audio is highly sensitive. This isn't necessarily a CON to me, but the sensitivity is NOT adjustable and there's no VOX feature. You hear a small amount of white noise, but this doesn't bother me. I do have to have the volume on the parent unit at the lowest audible setting, and I can still hear a little bit of my toddler's humidifier when it's running (it's placed on the same side of the room as the camera), but I'd rather hear this than miss hearing when he needs me, and it's not enough to keep me awake at night. For others, however, this might be a bigger deal.
- I read reviews that the battery life of the parent unit is bad when unplugged but I primarily keep ours plugged in, moving the cord for the couple times a day that I need to. I will update my review if I find this a big drawback after some time of use.
OVERALL: This video monitor unit meets the specific needs I have, and I am very pleased with it at this point. I was very unsure whether the product I needed was out there for a reasonable price, but I'm glad to say I was wrong. I would recommend this unit to others, especially if they are looking for a system to monitor multiple children.
UPDATE: I've now had the monitor for 1 year. I have no reason to regret choosing this monitor. It is such a great help, the visuals are still clear, and I'm more than happy with the performance! We wall-mounted the camera directly above our now-1-year-old's crib, and the close-up picture is detailed. I love being able to scan to view my 3 1/2 year old, making sure the baby's crying hasn't disturbed him, and that he's asleep in his bed. I'm loving the light-up soundbar that shows me the noise level. I have found it to be accurate. Additionally, I have found the button placement and general ease-of-use for the hand-held parent unit to be simple and extremely workable, even when I'm grasping for it in the middle of the night. The unit has a nice feel in the hand, and the "sleep mode" button on the upper right-hand side makes a quick visual check of the two different cameras a breeze. The kick-stand has a sturdy feel.
My parents visited to babysit for the evening and thought this monitor was the greatest tool.
I very recently started to use the talking feature with my now-3 1/2-year-old. He has followed my directions when I spoke through the monitor, and a few times he was able to explain a situation where he needed help. I hadn't anticipated using this feature of the monitor, but I'm pleasantly surprised.
The biggest complaint about this monitor has been the battery life, but the longest time I've needed to use it unplugged has been 5 hours and the battery never ran out, so it works for me! Still, if not MORE, highly recommended purchase!
We were replacing a 3 year old Motorola MBP33BU (33BU) ball type camera. Second baby on the way so we needed a second camera. The 33BU was a solid system, but it's not sold anymore. It's going to grandma's house.
Compared to the 33BU this system (MBP25) actually has better night vision. Much more clear.
The big (negative) difference is the limitation on viewing/mounting angle vs. the ball type camera. This unit swivels, etc., but because of the flat base there's a limit to how much you can swivel the camera to try to get the correct angle for your shot. I wasn't able to just put the new camera where the old camera was. We had to finagle a bit to get a decent shot. Ultimately the shot we got was worse than what we had before, so depending on your setup, this could be a big deal for you.
The base has two mounting holes on it, so you need two screws to mount it. I tried using 2 sided mounting tape, but the little rubber feet on the mount stick out farther than the tape, so it doesn't grab. Just use two screws.
The 33BU totally jacked up the 2.4ghz wifi in my house. If you turned off the monitor, the wifi worked perfectly. So far the MBP25 has not created the same interference. (Funny enough the 33BU doesn't interfere with the wifi at grandma's house. The interference depends on your router, where the units are placed, etc. so there's really no way to know if *this* monitor will be better or worse for interference for you.)
UPDATE: Spoke too soon on the wifi interference. This unit is causing intermittent interference, whereas the 33BU caused constant interference.
I'll also say we did experience the issue some people see where the image flashes between night and day vision repeatedly, but that's because the camera is mounted near the ceiling where there's not much light. Apparently the amount of light up there is just about at the threshold between night and day vision. If we move the camera to a different part of the room we don't get that issue, so it's a matter of our placement, not exactly a technical problem. This is not a practical problem for us because we only use the camera when the kid is sleeping and the lights are off, so it's always in night mode anyway.
As is clear in the description this model doesn't include temperature. Our old model did, so that's why I am noting it.
I've only had this running for a few days. I noted that some baby monitor reviews mentioned that the things crap out after a few months. If anything changes I will come back here and update the review to note it.
Giving it 4 stars because 3.5 isn't an option. It could be better, but for the price I think it's pretty good. And you won't find a 5 star product anyway so might as well save a few bucks.
What I don't like - the mounting was horrible bc of the angle of the camera on the mount. It has to be in two very awkward places in my kids' rooms to even be able to see them. It came with a "quick start" guide but no user manual so I have no idea what some of the functions even are or how to use them. "Night mode" flashes on and off depending on how the light comes through the window during their naps, but again - I have no idea what night mode even means. The range isn't good; with my old monitor it worked in my laundry room. This one does not. The picture isn't good. From the distance the camera is mounted to the kids' beds, I can hardly tell what's going on (again, picture was fine at this distance with the old monitor). And that's all just what you get from the start.
After just a few months of use, the power cord doesn't connect correctly to the monitor so it's constantly running on battery and then dying in the middle of the night or naps. It has to be plugged in at the EXACt RIGHT angle for it to even know it's plugged in. Now the sound just stopped working on one of the cameras. UGH. I haven't stopped complaining to my husband about this monitor since we bought it. I'm so very annoyed and I hate it so much. Our home is small so if anything were truly wrong with my kids I'd be able to hear them even without the monitor. If we had a larger home, I would definitely replace it. Unfortunately, I replaced my Infant Optics monitor with this one when kid #2 was born because I wanted the auto-switch feature between cameras.
Top reviews from other countries
We really like it. Here's why:
Size: Love the size of the monitor. Some people want big monitors but I prefer something that I can stick in my jeans if I really need to or in a hoodie pocket. This fits great.
Picture: I am sure there are better monitor pictures out there but for the price, this is all I need. I can tell if babies eyes are open or closed or if a blanket gets caught around it the wrong way. I don't need the special features out there and this works great for me.
Volume options: This has lots of volume settings. The Best View did not. That one was pretty loud on the quietest setting. My kid can be a loud sleeper even though nothing is wrong so having a really quiet setting means I don't wake up unnecessarily.
Multiple Cameras: This is the reason we bought this one. You can set it it to move between the two cameras every 8-10 seconds or so or have it on one or the other camera. It was really easy to figure this out as well (I like simple).
Feel: I am sure this likely doesn't matter to most but I just like how it feels in my hands. The Best View feels a little old school and I dropped it on pavement once and it marked it so there's always a rough spot on it. This one is plastic so when it gets dropped, it's a bit more durable.
Things that could be improved:
Pan and zoom: You can only move the camera around in zoom mode and when you go back into regular mode, it does not hold that position. It's kind of annoying if your kid moves around a lot. Ours does not so it isn't a deal breaker but it took a bit of getting used to.
All in all, we like this system and it fits our simple needs in a decent price range. I would recommend this to friends.
Update: We were having issues with the pan and tilt feature. E-mailed customer service and they were able to help us solve the issue ASAP.
Random interference from other objects in the home causes the monitor to stop audio/video without warning.
Battery life is okay. Keep the monitor charger handy and certainly plugged in if using this overnight.
Video quality, especially the night vision works very well.
Distance from camera to monitor works well from a few floors away or even outside if needed.
Overall, great price point for an in-home monitor.
