You get a monitor, the parent screen and control, an adaptor to charge each, and an instruction manual. I found this straightforward to use, and even my son picked it up quickly. I set up the monitor in my son's room, and liked the colour visuals in daylight, and the fact that it switches to night vision in low light conditions. The monitor and parent control come already paired, so once both are turned on, it starts broadcasting to the screen images from your child's room. You can adjust brightness, play melodies through your controls, speak to your child and also hear them (the volume is clear enough for a conversation though not overly loud. )
The temperature gauge also seems fairly accurate, not too bad.We live in a three-storey townhouse, and didn't have a problem picking up the signal from the very bottom of the house, the range is fine. I could carry it around on the attached clip.
When fully charged, the battery lasted more than 3 hours after my son went to bed, I could then see how long he took to fall asleep. I then charged it overnight whilst keeping the monitor on, so I knew when he was awake (and what he was up to!) in the morning.
We even said ""good morning"" to each other over the monitor.The whole comes in a nice presentation box, if purchasing for a new parent. Definitely useful for the youngest of babies as well as slightly older children, it perhaps isn't the highest quality in visuals, but for the price I'd say it's absolutely fine.The music option may not be to everyone's taste, but the other features are great for two-way communication and reassurance. With thanks to the manufacturer for the sample product.
The base is advertised to connect to four cameras (for different angles) but there's nowhere to buy extra Smilism brand cameras. The company seems to be nonexistent outside of Amazon as well. -1 star

There is also a detailed instruction leaflet with both written and pictorial guidance. The box itself has a lot of information on including various safety conformity marks. The Camera/transmitter is mounted on a flat stand with a small ball joint fixture that enables you to position it wherever you want to get a clear picture of baby. There is a small microphone and a speaker set into the back of the unit. There are also hanging slots on the back should you prefer to have this wall mounted.The lead attaches to a mini USB port on the back of the unit and there is ample cable length.The Monitor has a small pull out stand on the back as well as the speaker.
The cable again plugs in to a mini USB port on the side.On the front is the monitor screen with a small row of lights above that show that the unit is plugged in and charging. On the screen you can clearly see signal strength/volume/temperature and battery indicator showing level of charge. Below the screen you will find the operational buttons to control all the features including volume and brightness as well as a mic button to enable two way communication.The menu button then allows you to select your preferred settings for temperature and should you want more than one camera you can change from one camera to another. It also has an ECO mode that allows you to control the sound activation sensitivity.
It is early days and so we cannot comment on longevity but should I have any concerns I would certainly come back and update this but for now I really cannot find any fault with this at all.

When the monitor has a low battery it keeps beeping until you plug it in. That way if you don’t hear it at first, it won’t just die without you realizing it.Read more
