Sound good, battery poor
This is my second Oricom Baby monitor as the first completely died after 2 years of use. The previous one would only lasts 1hr at best off the charge whilst this one lasts a bit longer. I like it because its simple, I don't need a camera nor do I need the room temperature (the previous model had this and it was CONSTANTLY waking us up to tell us that the temp had reached 18 or 23 degrees).
Excellent, can even hear my baby move
The only thing I don't like about this baby monitor is its green light (indicates baby and parent units are linked). The light is super bright at night and disturbs my sleep (it's of course on my bedside table, next to my face - where else?). Other than that, can't fault it! Very easy to set up too, just turn it on and off you go.
Easy to set up and install. Night light could be good for older kids, although the green light on the baby unit could also work as a night light.
Love this monitor - sound is so clear and easy to use. Love the night light. Our house power went off one night and the parent unit immediately beeped to wake me up, letting me know the connection was broken. Very reassuring! Also small enough so it doesn't take up a lot of room in our small apartment.
DO NOT BUY! range only 50meter not 300 as stated. was told by customer service 300 meters only if both units outside. now why would you take both units outside if little one sleeping inside ????????? isnt 1 unit ment to be next to baby inside. DO NOT BUY !!!!!
Good Range, Good Sound - Great!
Just bought this and it's fantastic. It's based on cordless phone technology I think - sound is great and range is great. I walked out of the house and about 50m down the street (measured on Google), I could hear, although the sound was starting to break up a bit.
The baby unit is plugin only, but has a long cord, maybe 2m or so. The parent unit is rechargeable via plug to wall. So far has lasted at least 3 hours without charge and the batteries are rechargeable AAs so can easily be replaced.
I was going to get the SC520 but from other reviews it sounds like the LCD screens die after a couple of years and do I really need to know what temperature it is? Nah.
Oh and 3 year warranty was the final sell.
