Camera doesn't go down far enough.
Battery only good for around 5 hrs.
If you use the lullabies the sound on the monitor is deafening so you have to mute it which defeats the purpose.
The monitor charger is a silly design that we've found damages the unit as it only fits in one way and in the middle of the night when it's dark and your tired becomes an issue.
Picture quality isn't great especially in low light.

Not safe for 2 or more kids
The only way you can have this setup for more than one child/room is to have it on the scan mode to flick every 15 seconds back and forth.
I don't believe this is safe as what if you miss something in the other room during the scan time. I am really really disappointed as I have spent a large sum of money on this and too anxious to put my newborn in her room.

Perfect coverage of the room, you can manoeuvre itto suit where you child is within the cot, also has motion detection.
The audio and image quality are great
Easy set up
Only down fall to the device is when trying to mount the device so you can see your child there is no where you can attach to wall/crib your only real option is to have a table etc nearby

Stopped working 5 months after we got it due to the charging in the parent unit. Used it until we couldn’t no more, got a replacement and within 2 months the same thing has happened. Wouldn’t recommend this product to anyone. Customer service at oricom was good but don’t have the time to keep sending back faulty monitor and paying for delivery cost to return.

Shocking, terrible, disgusting product
We are now on to our second one after the shop blamed user error the first time. The second one now only 5 months old has about a week to go until it is also worthless. I sent an email to Oricom support after reading the reviews to give them a chance but after a response asking for proof of purchase we have not heard back. Please buy a different brand and save yourself the headaches.

Stops panning and the monitor doesn’t hold charge
Not satisfied with the product at all. Had the camera replaced due to it stopping panning within a few months and now the replacement won’t pan. The monitor wouldn’t charge properly and the cable falls out. Now it won’t charge at all and only works when plugged in = nightmare. So unreliable and disappointing

Poor Warranty Support
Only ever received one power cable with the unit, which we assumed was meant to be shared between the camera and the parent unit. Apparently we were meant to have received two cables, and the cable we've been using has damaged the parent unit and it will not charge. After lodging claim, Oricom offered to fix the parent unit, but will not supply the second cable that was never included in the first place! They said we should have read the instruction guide and we should have known a cable was missing. But really who reads an instruction guide fo...r a "plug and play" appliance?! Unhappy with the resolution, and since it took so long for them to process the claim, we've had to buy another unit (which was cheaper and so much clearer). Will not be shopping Oricom again, and would not advise others either!

Terrible audio, sound can barely be heard!I can’t comment on range as we are in a very small unit. no sounds to the motion alarm only a red message appears

Great customer service, not so great product
We owned this system for about 3 months until the screen's USB port wore out from every day use and would no longer charge.
To be honest, it's pretty disappointing quality for the price (even though Oricom is an Australian company and the price will understandably be higher)
HOWEVER, the customer service was great. Oricom gave us a replacement unit the same day (via baby bunting) and we chose to upgrade to the SC870.
- Decent range, never had an issue inside the house (medium side 3-bedroom house)
- OK battery life - it would last most of the night. Iusually had to plug it in to charge in the early morning
- OK screen, it was clear and legible in most situations...

Camera stops panning after 1 month
Camera stopped panning after a month. Googled to troubleshoot and found countless others with the same problem. Wouldn’t offer refund. Only replacement. When I asked if I could get a refund if the second camera fails I was told I was outside the purchase warranty for a refund (I purchased on sale in Nov 2019, baby born was in January 2020, we only started to use the Camera in May when baby moved to the cot.) I wish I had read the reviews prior to purchase.

Costumer service was not helpful at all!
I purchased this monitor for quite a lot of money, and the charging port at the back of the monitor has broken after only 4 weeks of being used. Oricom refuse to replace it even when under warranty. Very poor quality and horrible costumer service.

Oricom Secure 895 baby monitor is absolutely useless and not worth the money you pay!
Video monitor quality is absolutely average and that's about the most useful thing in this product. It does the job - you can see that your child is still in the room but movement lags and view of your child is very blurry.
Onto the parent unit. Firstly, the charger for the parent unit never worked from the moment I took it out of the box. I called Oricom and they sent out a new charger. It's now broken again after three charges. Trying to call Oricom this time has been unsuccessful, put through to voicemail twice after holding for 15mins each...time. The functions don't work. Even on the lowest setting, my VOX function goes off every 2-5mins saying sound alarm even when the room is empty. Motion setting is also useless because it alternates every other 2-5mins with the sound alarm. So I can't mute the parent unit and rely on motion and sound alarm because it would literally keep me up all night. Instead, I have to keep the volume on for the whole night on low, which plays annoying static noise and I can barely hear when my LO cries. Leaving this on all night obviously then drains the battery. Which you can't charge, because the chargers are faulty. Every time I psych myself up to use it again, I regret it and give myself a huge headache. Leave this one on the shelf, people.

Look elsewhere and save yourself the trouble!
We've had intermittent issues with this product where the receiver just doesn't receive a decent signal from the camera and all we hear is a loud crackling of static.
Stupidly we decided to purchase a second camera seeing as we already had the other one. Well the second camera won't even show a picture...the room is only 4 metres from where we are and we can't even get a signal. Absolute rubbish product and the fact that they are allowed to sell it at that price is a disgrace.
Save your money and look elsewhere. I wish we did.

A Dream For A Wriggly Kid
While I’d still say that the visual component of this baby monitor is unparalleled and absolutely phenomenal for a wriggly kid - I’m sorry to report the audio is abysmal on the parenting unit. It just cuts out willy nilly, mid cry, mid conversation..
I contacted Oricom and their customer service was great, they sent me a replacement immediately for which I was grateful.
However the replacement did the exact same thing.
I moved the parent unit around the house to make sure the signal somehow wasn’t being disrupted in our (very...

Worst Baby Product I Own
This monitor has caused more stress than good. We are already onto our second monitor as the parent screen charger has stopped working. Tonight our new monitor has just stopped charger through the night and the screen has gone flat. Oricom make it very difficult to get a refund or exchange and instead ask questions like are you using the correct charging port and try to make it your fault that the product is faulty.

Questions & Answers
We habe the same issue as another has posted in relation to the Sc895. Our original parent unit will not charge as the cord no longer connects properly it just falls out of the unit. We no longerhave our receipt for this although only 12 months old. Please advise which parent units other than the 895 we can use which will be compatible with our 895 cameras?

Hi there, my SECURE895 monitor is showing bright colors for all objects but shows baby/adult bodies as a dark black blue. Is there a mode it is stuck in or has the monitor failing.

Hi - the parent unit continuously freezes? At least twice a night, I have it plugged in to the charger and on all night and need to reset using a needle. Surely it shouldn't be freezing!!
