second camera not even a year old

This camera is quite unreliable. I have had to have to camera replacement in not even a year as camera just stops connecting. the first one only lasted a week. customer service dont seem to care and just say the will send a new one. The temp control is really bad 4-5 degrees higher which is just annoying as it cant be calibrated. Show details

Parent Unit/ Camera: Good. App/Camera: Terrible

Have not had any issues with the parent unit and two cameras.
The connection has always worked well, we haven’t had any of the issues described in other reviews. The picture and sound is clear and we don’t use the music or light features. Temperature is sometimes 3-4 deg out but that would be the only improvement area.
The iPhone app and camera pairing is terrible. Both cameras drop in and out, require constant pairing with the wifi (even on the camera that has a mesh router sitting next to it), The app won’t even create a QR code to pair the camera and wifi anymore. The app needs some serious improvements, this would not be acceptable if we had only purchased cameras and were expecting to use our phones as the parent unit. Show details

Camera do not last

Originally purchased 2 and just before needing a 3rd camera one of the 1st 2 stopped working. Oricom replaced this but it has since stopped working as well. Purchased a 3rd to cover whilst first one was being replaced and today this has stopped working.
When they work they have good audio and good visuals but they are unreliable.
3 cameras that say they are paired but aren't and do not reset in 12 months. Not happy and now going to have to get an entire new set up or buy more cameras that will inevitably stop working as well.

Heap of rubbish. Great when it sometimes works

Camera disconnects randomly.
The reset function is tempermental or just doesnt work.
The temperature reading is 6 degrees out at all times.
The camera disconnected alarm cannot be silenced while trying to repair or reconnect.
My suggestion is to steer clear of this unit as it isnt worth the headache

Best customer service

Wouldn’t connect to my wifi so I returned it. Otherwise the customer service was the best customer service I’ve ever experienced. Show details ·  1

Camera disconnecting continuously

Received this product as a gift in exchange for a review. Requested a replacement camera, but the problem is persisting. The monitor and camera lose connection for no obvious reason. Both units are un touched, no interruption to battery or power sources, or internet disruption and still the camera disconnects. Even once restarting several times, it's luck of the draw if they manage to connect. Will be purchasing a new system as this one is useless to me.

Horrible. Power light is to bright on camera and can not turn off

The power light in the camera is bright green and can not be turned off. This goes against all sleep advice to keep room dark. My LO just looks at the light. Show details

The cot stand is so handy with a toddler especially! I love the split screen function and also the app so I can see both my girls from my phone! Highly recommend !! Show reply

Amazing baby monitor !!

Monitor is clear and can see baby at all times.
The coverage is really good as our home is big so I take the monitor even to the basement and works perfect.
Setting up the monitor was ok, wifi just needs to be good!
Very happy :) Show details ·  1

Amazing

I absolutely love this monitor and the size of the monitor screen and how clearly the quality is. So easy to use and the parent hub is amazing. Easy to setup too. I honestly highly recommend this to all parents with a newborn. Show details ·  1

Finally a 'smart' baby monitor from Oricom!

We have 5 kids (our newborn being just over 2 months old) so we've used a few a few baby monitors over the years.
This is the first monitor we've owned that is a 'smart' baby monitor, it allows a live stream directly to the connected mobile phone app which is so handy! It has settings to send notifications when it detects movement or sound which means I can get alerts on my phone even when the unit is still charging - like I said, so handy!
We absolutely love the OBH430, it has all the features that you'd look for in a baby monitor:
- clear picture & audio
- live streaming
- easy setup of the camera unit
- Hubble application is straight forward and easy to use
- magnetic free pivot base for camera unit
- awesome night vision mode Show reply

Does this baby monitor record video? I want a monitor that records all night that can be saved is necessary.

Can I use the app to live stream over mobile data?
Or does the app work only when connected to the same wifi as the camera?

Hi Gemma, you can use the APP with mobile data also. Thanks, Oricom.
