    So perfect for our small but growing family!


    This baby monitor has been great for us! It’s a great price! The quality is great and helps me clearly see my baby in her cot! It works no matter where I am in my house! I cannot fault it!
    So easy to set up just plug in and go! Plus if you have multiple babies you can set up multiple cameras for the one monitor!

    Great base model video monitor


    Have had my monitor for nearly 3 years and the picture is great.
    Unfortantly the sound did stop working on parent unit so contacted oricom for warranty claim.
    all the staff i dealt with were friendly and healpful and replaced monitor with no hassle.
    Would highly recomend oricom products, such a great company.

    Ok for a not to expensive monitor


    I purchased an oricom monitor with my first baby and it was fantastic. It didn't have the camera but the sound quality was excellent. So i thought i would be getting the same quality from oricom with the video monitor i bought. The picture is ok but there is a constant buzzing noise and the sounds quality is not good at all. Really bad echoing. I mainly use it for the camera. It has a zoom function and night vision which is handy. It doesn't have the room temperature which my other one bad and was very handy. This is a very basic video monitor. You get what you pay for.

    I've been using this baby monitor for 4.5 months and I am about to return it for a second time!
    The first time I had to return it was due to the battery shorting out and burnt! The whole monitor smelt burnt, so I returned it and received a new one.
    Now I am using the second monitor and it is not turning on, even after few days of trouble shooting it. I am not going to get this brand again I am going to get my money back and buy something more reliable and safe.

    Hi there, thanks for the message. As per page 10 of the User Guide:

    4.8 Video On / Off
    The display can be turned off, the audio will still be available for the camera units.
    (1) During video monitor mode, press and release <Power> key, LCD is then turned off and receives sound from
    camera (Audio only mode).
    (2) During audio only monitor mode, if audio level on baby unit is higher than VOX level then video turns on again.
    (3) User also can turn the video on by pressing any key.
    (4) If the video is turned off and the audio is also off the audio will turn on to level 1 while the video is off, it will return to off when the video it turned on.

    All the best, Oricom Baby Care.
