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 wifi issues and had to be returned.
All I want is a baby monitor that I can see my baby! Why is it so hard to get a monitor that works?
I have contacted Oricom about this issue and if it is the case that the button needs to be pressed all the time to see anything I'll be returning the camera to baby bunting for a refund.
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 it won't fit and that pushing it will break it. I didn't do this initially, which meant that it didn't charge one night, which combined with the other two issues to mean that we didn't hear my child wake until his screams woke us up through the house hours after he'd normally wake us (even though the monitor was still actually on, just with a low battery). No idea how long he'd been crying for. Firstly, the monitor was in the cradle so I thought it was charging (but the clip stopped it. I now know how to avoid this), secondly, I'd made assumptions that it would alert me with a sound if battery was low (like my previous monitor), and that it would still work with low battery anyway (also like my previous monitor). I could still activate the screen to view my son and it appeared to be on...how can it just not alert me of his cries?? Disappointing design.
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!
