Doesn’t turn screen on when my baby cries

I was gifted this unit at my baby shower and I always thought it was strange how the screen wouldn’t come on when my baby cries but thought it was my settings being incorrect but I’m sure it’s the monitor not working correctly. I can hear him cry so I then press the button to check on him and then I can hear him and see him on the monitor. Shouldn’t it come on automatically when he is crying? It’s been like this since I set it up and don’t want to waste money buying a new one. Show details

Complete rort

Within months the battery dies, to the point where it lasts a matter of seconds unplugged. Effectively becomes an AC powered device, which I question the safety of given it still has to run via the battery. With a useless 12 month warranty, this device was more useful in the bin. Never again Uniden.

Battery life not good

Battery goes flat within 1 hour of been off dock.
I'm going on 3 years of having it and it has to be replaced. Lucky for it to last 10 minutes when not on dock. Have another baby due and looks like ill have to replace the whole thing instead of just buying an additional camera. Will look at other brands now and something that is more durable and long lasting.

The worst battery life - useless warranty

I regret purchasing this product. The features are great BUT the battery only lasts 1 hour off the dock before going flat. I contacted Uniden as it was still in warranty at the time and was told they could replace the battery but I would need to send it to them for repair. If it wasn't an essential device this would not have been a problem. If I was able to be without a monitor for an unknown period of time while it was being repaired, then why would I need one at all? We see the advertising of these products suggesting that baby is safer with the use of a baby monitor and it is impressed on expecting parents that monitors are essential, so the thought of having to be without mine was out of the question. Show details

Pointless

The features on this baby monitor are great but are pointless when the monitor itself keeps showing a black screen with an 'out of range' message. Even if I'm standing right at the nursery room door Show details

Terrible battery life

It's great for the first couple of months then you will find it just needs to live on it's charger. Battery life is atrocious. Apart from the battery issue, it is a good unit. Contacted customer service as they have recommended in the rest of the 1 star reviews regarding the product's Battery life - their solution is to pay $88 + post the unit into their repair centre for them to replace the battery (so around $100!). Another option is for them to post you a battery for $45 as a DIY option which they don't recommend. Buyer beware. Doesn't meet the advertised battery life from day 1.

Don't buy this

Worst monitor ever. Terrible picture, grainy and flashed out. And the charger now doesn't work after 8 months of use. I have emailed the company and no reply, I also tried to call but was waiting on hold until I gave up. Terrible in every way. What a waste of money! Please buy a different make, my first was Motorola, which was FAR better, but it didn't have the option fir 2 cameras. There are other options though, so please stay away from this make and company. Do not recommend. Terrible product and no customer service.

Terrible battery life and charger doesn’t connect well

Purchased for first bub in 2020 as recommended by baby store and whilst it’s clear for viewing the monitor doesn’t charge! As soon as you take it off the dock, after an over night charge, it’s not charged! And whatever is charged doesn’t last. Also, the connection with the charger doesn’t connect. You have to maneuver it to try and get it connected. Frustrating! Show details

Terrible reception

The monitor has a very clear picture.. for the 'Out of range' message that is constantly displayed. It will pick up the signal if you are standing at the door of the nursery. I tried to convince my husband to stand there holding the monitor when babe is down instead of watching TV but he was not into it. Product is less than a year old. It originally picked up the signal in the whole house. I guess it thinks my baby is not very interesting anymore. Not impressed. Show details

The buttons on my Uniden monitor randomly stops working. Working one minute and not the next. The only buttons that work are the power button and the talk feature button. The screen is stuck on channel 1 and I cannot view the 2nd camera. Can this be fixed?

We have this monitor and our monitor now has stopped charging, if I buy another Uniden product will the cameras work with the new monitor? I am looking at the Uniden BW4151 4.3in Digi Wireless Baby Monitor??
