Terrible! Cheaper version is 10x better
We have a small house and it is constantly sending the error alert, during the night consistently beeps that it’s been disconnected, dies within 2 hours even with full charge, needs to be reset by removing the battery and unplugging from the wall at least twice a day. Night vision is so so so poor - scary given one night my son was unwell and choking and we couldn’t see anything, luckily we could hear him. So disappointed in the quality of this, and the issues - attempted to contact oricom and was basically told too bad so sad and now we will need to replace it.
Terrible - would not recommend
This monitor was a gift for my baby shower and have been using for approx 4 months, I’ve never been so unhappy!
Super sensitive camera, a car driving past (our house isn’t very close to the road) or a fan on the other side of the room sets it off.
An error keeps coming up on monitor stopping the footage from coming up.
Has turned off during the night multiple times whilst on the charger fully charged.
Picture quality is not the best.
I’m disappointed that I do not have a receipt to return this item, now I have to go and look into spending money on another baby monitor.
Good until it isn't
I have been using this camera for 8 months. For a short period of time I was very happy with it, so happy that I even purchased my brother one. However, I have now been experiencing issues. I honestly would not recommend this product. Please read below:
Easy to set up
Camera has a reasonably good pic quality for day and night
We love that the camera turns off when there are no inconsistent noises and on when she wakes and makes noise
We loved being able to adjust the sound sensitivity
Battery life is ok, not great but ok.
Audio quality is good.
- Verified purchase
Has everything you need!
I am very happy with the audio and image quality on this monitor. It also has temperature reading, vibrating alerts, zoom, and the option of a black screen while you can still have the audio which is perfect for when I’m sleeping.
Purchased Today - want a refund
I just purchased this monitor today and set it up.
I have no idea if I'm doing something wrong but I've read the manual and can't get it to stay on a video feed. It shows me video for 5-10 seconds then goes to a black screen. I have to keep on pressing the button to see anything. This is unacceptable. I have a video camera so I can SEE my baby.
Also the camera can only be moved up and down not side to side when mounting it, this makes it hard for me to get a good angle.
I had a vtech which was perfect for what I needed but it had errors due to...
Having a few issues
We have this monitor with two cameras. The VOX feature is great as well as the battery life. The main issues I have is firstly the lullabies. When played you can barely hear them coming out of the camera and no way to increase the volume that I have found. The other thing is the fact you can barely see anything on one of the cameras while on night vision. I’ll try to attach a photo.
Good monitor except for a few design flaws
This monitor works well with all functions except the charging. Two issues:
- there is no warning beep for low battery (useless when you're asleep/not looking at the monitor!)
- the device doesn't work (i.e. doesn't pick up my child's cries) when the battery is low (I'm talking low, not off/flat), even though it appears to be on and you can see your baby on the screen.
Another complication is that to charge the parent unit in the cradle, you need to push the clip/desk stand in and down (hard) to lock it in, even though it looks at first like i...
Would not go without this
I bought this baby monitor at Baby Bunting, and have have been excited with the model so far. We love the VOX feature which works really well and love that White noise has been added to this model. Both womb sounds and vacuum cleaner sounds are available, alongside lullabies too!
Good battery life and option to add cameras in the future. A great little unit and perfect for what we need it for!
Reliable, Easy to use, Love it!
The Oricom Secure720 has been great for us! We have always liked Oricom products because we have found them to be very reliable. This monitor is no exception! The range is fantastic with no dropouts even when we are at the other end of the house. It picks up noises from bub really well and I love the addition of the White noise functions as it really makes it an all in one. Overall it is easy to use, the picture quality is clear and it’s reliable. Exactly what you need in a Baby Monitor
This is fantastic monitor!
This monitor has great picture quality and functionality. It’s easy to set up and use. One tip is to make sure the stand is pushed out when you put it on the charger!
It’s very sensitive to noise.
The speaker works well if you verbally need to communicate with your baby.
Love it! Use it everyday!
This monitor is great, we use it at home and at Nana’s house. Great range in long single storey house also two storey, haven’t had it drop out. Image quality is great for a smaller screen, sound is clear. Setup was simple, and turning on and off is quick and easy. We keep it on the charger through the night and the battery then lasts us all the day naps, even with the screen on. Very happy and highly recommend. Origin are happy to answer any queries or concerns too!
Questions & Answers
Does the camera always have to be plugged into the mains power in order to work? It can't work wirelessly when charged?
It works wirelessly when charged! Mine lasts roughly 6/7 hours until it needs to be on charge again.
Hi Alex, the camera unit must be plugged into the mains power to function. The parent unit however contains a battery so can be used once fully charged. All the best, Oricom Baby Care.
Can the camera be mounted on a wall?
Hi there, thanks for the message. Yes, the camera unit can be mounted to the wall. All the best, Oricom Baby Care.
Just purchased an oricom sc720 with two cameras. This doesn’t pick up any sound to alert us the baby is crying or making a noise in the room.
We have an sc710 that picked up everything and vibrated through the night to let me know my little one was awake and making noise.
So disappointed, how can the one function of this not work?
Help please. This is the second attempt at a new oricom product we will be returning this month.
Looks like the sc710 will have to do.
Hi Sarah, thanks for the message. Could you please give our locally based Oricom Support a call on 1300 889 785 Mon-Fri 8am-6pm AEST, as the team will be able to assist. All the best, Oricom Baby Care.
