Video Quality

You’ll love the video quality, which ranked at the top of the list of all those tested. The video and audio that comes through on the parent unit is clear and easy to see and hear, even on the other side of the house. Although the video screen on the parent unit is 3.5 inches and the screen resolution is pretty low, the quality of the video image is still excellent.

This Infant Optics DXR 8 unit even gives the option to connect up to four cameras to one parent unit. While the other cameras do have to be purchased separately, you’ll love how easy it is to set up cameras in each room where baby may be.

If you choose to purchase multiple cameras, you will be able to configure them all to the same parent unit and you will not have to worry about moving the camera each time your baby sleeps or plays in a different room.


Easy and Simple to Use

This baby monitor is extremely easy to set up and use. We know you’re super busy preparing your home for your baby’s arrival, and trying to figure out how to set up a baby monitor is probably not what you want to spend your time doing.

The Infant Optics DXR-8 is simple to set up right out of the box. The parent unit needs to be charged, but after that, you just plug it in so that it can pick up the signal. After set-up, you will find that the device itself is very easy to use.

The parent unit has five buttons to make navigating your device simple. From your parent device, you can remotely pan, tilt, turn, and zoom the camera so that you can look around the baby’s room without actually disturbing the baby.

Bonus Features

This unit boasts a six hour battery life when used continuously – ten hours on power-saving mode. The retractable antenna on the parent unit adds to its range of use. The led display is sound-activated.

So when the baby is sleeping soundly and the video display on the parent unit turns off, you will know if there is sound in the baby’s room because the sound-activated display will light up and grab your attention.

One last feature that you’ll love is the remote room temperature monitoring. You won’t have to worry about waking the baby up just to check on whether the room temperature is too cold or too hot. The temperature will be transmitted to the parent unit so that you can monitor this without disturbing your little one.

The Drawbacks

This is a simple unit, and it does not have A/V or WiFi capabilities. You won’t be able to connect it to the big screen tv in the living room (why would you want to do that anyway?), nor will you be able to control it with your smartphone.

This unit also does not play lullabies, act as a nightlight, or take snapshots or videos. But overall, those are insignificant concessions when compared with the quality and ease of use that this product has to offer.


My Verdict?

Many people want the latest and greatest. Or the most expensive and advanced item on the market. But sometimes that item isn’t always the best option. Out of all the monitors I tested, the Infant Optics DXR-8 is at the top of the list. It has all the necessary features and the east of use that make it a perfect fit for any nursery.
