Great

Battery on the modem part runs out fast, has to be on charge a lot. But other than that I love it. I use it every night, great picture. adjusts to the lighting very fast. Definitely recommend!

Purchased in December 2019 at Baby Bunting.

Works better than expected!

published

Easy to use and great quality, had never used a baby monitor before so was nervous about spending a lot of money on something without knowing how well they work but it's exceeded my expectations and well worth it.

Purchased in February 2020.

Good value for money

published

Great price and works pretty good for our small house. Does not do very well for distance and sometimes will loose reception at times. In general though great for the price and would buy again.

Purchased in August 2019 at Baby Bunting Physical store for A$95.00.

Good unit

published

Just trialed the Vtech BM2700, sound works, camera for both colour and night vision looks good without being exceptional but when paying $74 for the unit I wasn’t expecting CIA type camera tech here.

Keep it basic - if the sound works and the image quality allows you to see what your baby is doing or isn’t that what you need.

No requirement to spend $300plus on 5inch + parent monitors (screens), 1080p video, audio songs blah blah blah you get the drift

4 out of 5 stars it does the fundamental things you need (audio and video)

Battery life is quite short on the parent unit.

Better options out there especially for battery life

published

Easy to use, average video quality And audio crackly. Night vision better than colour/day and appauling battery life 2.5 hours Max. Wouldn't recommend, better spending a bit more for better battery life.

Purchased in November 2019 at Target Australia for A$90.00.

Love it

published

Easy to use and set up. Good choice of options/preferences in settings. Battery life and reception was better than expected. Video is slighly grainy but does not affect the visability of baby.

Purchased in June 2019 at Target Australia for A$99.00.

The Battery life sucks

Good distance range aswell.

Poor video quality

published

All vtec baby monitors only have a 3 hour max batt life on parent unit (as per email from them). The quality of the video is terrible. Night vision needs improvement. Sound sensitivity better than previous model but it beeps even on mute??

On the camera in baby’s room the light on it keeps flashing why is that?

I don’t have one, but reading other reviews and questions on here, I’m thinking it sounds like the charging light. Presumably it doesn’t need to be plugged in while operating, can be charged and then unplugged, this may solve your problem. Apologies if I’ve misinterpreted.
