Frustrated and disappointed

published

Purchased this monitor as I don't like the idea of video monitors. Ended up having to send this model back 3 times due to the parent unit not linking, now I just use it as a night light.
I've since purchased the newer model of this (520 I think it is) for my new bub, 3 months in the parent unit didn't link so I sent it back, they replaced it with a brand new one and after 2 weeks the units won't link again today. So frustrating!!

Faulty unit

published

Purchased this monitor May 2013. I wished I researched this product carefully. The parent control unit had been playing up for example when turning on unit, all LED'S lit up and on the LCD display ABCDEFG etc as it seemed possessed , then started beeping. The only way to stop the beeping was to pull out batteries. Also the torch light turned on by itself during the night. Called ORICOM today and was advised by them that I could replace batteries if that didn't fix the problems I could purchase the parent unit again for $90, as it was out of warranty by two months. NOT HAPPY. Purchase this product only if you want to risk throwing away your money

Disappointing unit that did not last

published

Purchased prior to my son's birth, as my sister had loved her oricom (an earlier model, which almost 5 years on, has not skipped a beat). Had I been able to locate the receipt post-birth, I would have returned it. Within 3 months the digital display had disappeared, and after approximately 12 months of use, the unit would no longer stay on for extended periods of time (even on mains supply). Now, after 21 months of use, it will not stay on for more than 5 minutes and I have to replace it. Extremely disappointing.

Poor quailty product - would not purchase this

published

Like others here the screen on the handset is no longer readable...which doesn't matter anymore as the on/off switch is now broken too. The on/off switch on the base unit has also been very temperamental since day one and needs to be pressed in a particular way to get it to work. Unfortunately have lost receipt or this would be returned.

Sound quality is good but lcd screen is terrible!

published

I have been using this monitor for 9 months. The sound quality is crystal clear. The handset lcd screen pixels have been slowly fading and since yesterday I only have 3 pixels on the screen so have no idea what the temperature is in nursery and how much battery I have left. Worst thing is that I got it as a gift and do not have the receipt to return it even though it is still in the warranty period :(
Crystal clear sound even in a two storey house.
lcd screen pixels fade so you have no idea of nursery temperature or handset battery life.

I was told by Oricom that it's to do with the batteries dying. If you replace it, it should be ok after. I am in the process of getting mine replaced to see if it helps. Mine didn't last more than a year and I had the same issue

Don't waste your money

published

I bought this because it is supposed to be a good brand & I liked the music options. I found the music functionality difficult to use and there was a poor selection of songs. I did like the torch functionality.
Then after two months the screen of the handset began to fade so I returned it.

These units are a joke, the latest one has only lasted less that 10 weeks. Unit want charge, and want link. Oricom stop blaming the batteries and change type or units. I will never buy Oricom again or recommend to any one

Battery is a little dispointing :(

published

The units functions itself are great, however battery life is VERY poor, and the nursery unit does not have battery back up! Our battery goes flat after being off the charge for 4 hours. These two reasons are really important to me and i feel that these two issues really let the monitor down, if these were changed then the unit and its abilities would be fantastic! I also love the clarity and no fuzziness in the sound
The torch, the muting abilities, temperature etc
Battery goes flat way too quick. No battery back up for the nursery unit

Very disappointing

published

We purchased this monitor, happy to spend a little more money than planned to ensure we had a monitor that would last - for our baby now and anymore we may be blessed with in the future. A month ago, when my little one was 3 months old the portable unit was not charging properly. The only way we could get it to work was to 'jimmy' the power cord into the battery pack. Now bub is 4 months and the charging unit is not working at all. I thought we were covered by the 3 year warranty only to find the battery pack only has a 30 day warranty. Not recommended at all, we wasted $200.
Initially worked well
Bad warranty service, unusable after 4 months!

So far so good ;)

Love the new Oricom Secure610 we've recently purchased from Baby Expo, because our old units were very noisy. Baby unit comes with lightshow, nightlights and music. Also has Aux input for MP3. Ran a watt test, it only consumes 1.5watts which is even cheaper than running our GroEgg. Parent unit, love the remote control functions and how you can turn all the features on/off at your fingertips.
Everything so far, especially the noise interference factor. Oh wait, there are none :) Cheap to run too.

Just found out to replace the battery for my Oricom, it'll cost $24 and the battery is only $14. Still loving the sound quality of the unit but starting to be disappointed with the product a little due to display issue and battery life.

We used our sc610 for our 1st child and were very happy with it but we have just pulled it out in preparation for our 2nd and the lcd on the handheld device is unreadable? It should still be under warranty but can't find the original receipt. What options do we have?
Regards, Bob

Hi Bob, I'm not sure. Without proof of purchase it can be hard. My advice would be to contact the customer service team at Oricom to see what they can do for you.

Charlotte Brown

Charlotte Brownasked

I have a SC310 that the receiver unit won't stay on even when sitting on the parent cradle. The red light is displayed to say it is charging and no matter how long it has charged for it won't stay on for longer than 2 mins. I have tried draining the batteries completely and then recharging and it still won't work.

Hi Charlotte, It sounds like the battery may need replacing. Batteries are a consumable and, depending on use, may need to be replaced every 6-12months. To accurately identify the issue and for assistance in resolving, please call our Customer Support on 1300 889 785 and one of our friendly team will be able to help you.
