What you loved
This was easy to set up and use, with clear instructions and intuitive functions on the parent unit to figure out.
It was a reasonably clear picture quality and good cable length for getting this into the correct initial position for viewing Amelia.
The most impressive feature was the panning motion which was very useful to make sure we could get the position correct when Amelia rolls around in her cot (we did not have to disturb her by moving the camera due to blind spots).
It looks sleek and did not appear out of place in both the nursery and lounge.
The voice feature was crisp and clear, the temperature gauge was accurate within 1°C (compared with mercury thermometer).
What to watch out for
The parent unit kept switching off into a power saving mode, so when sleeping and glancing up to check Amelia we had to switch this back on.
The nightlight feature was not useful, this was just a white light so a little harsh and can only be operated by the parental control. It would have been good to have a changeable colour and able to operate when in the room on the camera as well.
Zoom mode was not clear, it was not a great value addition for close viewing.
I really liked the panning mode which worked excellently, however the biggest disappointment was the continual switching off of the parent unit. The price is more than I would pay for this baby monitor.
