Update....three months later.
Still love these monitors. As time went on, and we were getting more sleep at night, we did notice the brightness of the blue light. On the monitor we keep in our bedroom, I put a small piece of black duct tape over the part of the monitor that shines the brightest (down at the bottom and across the power button). It doesn't affect the function and diffuses the light a bit. The other monitor we keep in the living room, so the light is not an issue. Overall still pleased with our purchase.
The parent unit does beep when the receiver loses power, is turned off, or the parent unit is low on battery which is a good feature. It also beeps when you press the plus or minus button for volume control= super annoying in the middle of the night. Summer Infant would do well to change to a pin-head size power indicator light on the parent units. It would also be great if you could turn noise indicators on and off or at least control volume and light intensity.
The range of this unit is so-so. Our house is 3000 sq ft. and reception inside is ok. Outside is a different story.Read more ›
Anyway, the monitor works totally fine. You can hear your baby just fine.
Come on, guys...let's hold it together. We have at least 18 more years of fretting.
The transmitter is plugged in, in his room.
The receiver can be plugged in OR runs on battery. If the transmitter in his room is turned off, OR if the power goes out, as long as there is a battery in the receiver, it will start beeping to let me know it is not receiving a signal.
I've read some reviews that say the blue light on the receiver is very bright. It is a bit bright, but I just don't put it on my night stand. Instead I simply place it on the floor and "point" the lights under the bed.
For any parents who may have a hard time hearing, the lights are a very clear signal that something is going on in the room with the transmitter.
A simple design, and it works perfectly.
- Good price
- Can clearly hear the baby when he needs me
- Blue lights on the side flash when the baby makes a sound
- Receiver beeps when disconnected from the base
- Blue light flickers even when the baby isn't making a sound (confusing!)
- Poor range even inside my tiny house!
- Battery life isn't great (I pretty much ended up keeping it plugged in all the time)
I wouldn't recommend this monitor to a friend with any glowing terms but I gave it three stars because it does the job. Personally, I think a video monitor would have been a better choice.
