Horrible, horrible constant beeping when it is on.

We use this because we can't afford another one but for goodness sake if you have the choice DO NOT buy this one. It is awful. It beeps constantly when it is one. (literally constantly). It is the most horrible annoying sound and it will drive you crazy. It drastically effects how useful we find it to be and use it only in peep mode and only overnight. The beeping drowns out our kid so we can't even hear is she is breathing or talking to herself. We can only hear her when she is screaming. So yeah it takes a toddler SCREAMING to be heard over the obnoxious horrible beeping. I literally hate this thing and as soon as we can get another option or we don't need it anymore I am going to take a rock to it and enjoy every moment.

Works Great, Simple to use, simple interface

Bought this product a few weeks ago prior to our child joining us in this world.
Love the simplicity of the interface, quiet zoom and panning of the camera along with the zoom and moving base to see our child.
Purchased for a great price and very happy with the purchase after doing our research on various other baby monitors and seeing their reviews.

Great Monitor, beware of too many bells & whistles

This monitor is good to great. The camera panning and additional camera work well together, the monitor itself is very easy to use and has enough features. We originally bought the Willow touch screen and hated it, we had the Ayden which we loved but it eventually died just after the warranty period (of course) and since we were accustomed to Levana we were excited for all the Willow bells and whistles. Huge mistake, it was HORRIBLE. I am actually shocked they put such a poor product to market.

That being said, this Astra is good. The camera is NOT great from far distances, so you will lose a lot of the granularity in the images at night, but close up it is really clear day or night. The monitor has the peep feature which is really a must have. Meaning, it turns on when it hears sound. So you don't have to leave it on all of the time which means you can sleep without light in your face all night. One of my complaints (other than the camera distance not being clear) is that when it peeps on, it doesn't automatically turn itself off. The old Levana Ayden did this and it was an amazing feature. Basically, if the peep turned on it stayed on for a minute or two and if there were no sounds, it shut itself back off. The battery life of Astra is good, especially if you keep it in peep mode where the screen is off.

Having had THREE Levana monitors, I worry with the new monitors, Levana is not choosing functionality that parents really want/ need. In my opinion the earlier models are better than the latter: Ayden > Astra > Willow. That is disappointing, but I still think this is a great set up if you want camera with panning features and also a multi-camera capable set up. I cannot reiterate enough how bad the Willow was.

This has been a great product to put our minds at ease in the evenings with our son now sleeping in his separate bedroom or so I can spend some time i the yard while he naps during the day. Works perfectly for our needs.

So far so good

I finally bought a baby monitor and so far this one has been good. I like how I can control the movement of the camera from a distance using the hand held. Also, it has good battery life and range.

Great baby monitor!

I bought this baby monitor for our first baby and I absolutely love it! The sound and picture quality is very clear and we love using peep mode. This is a great feature to have at night because it allows the screen to go dark and it will only light up when your baby starts making noises. I definitely recommend this monitor!

Great Battery Life

The range is great when there's minimal walls and floors in the way. Was able to take monitor deep into our backyard and also to the opposite corner of the house (only on the same floor) before loosing signal. Range was extremely reduced when I went onto a different floor. Could only go to the next room directly below the baby's room. Loss of signal is sudden - I had full bars till a tipping point then I would loose all signal. Can see really clear at night although sometimes I would have to cover the sensor on the camera before it would switch to night mode (direct light onto the sensor from the hallway would delay the switch).

Pros:
+ Range is great when there is little to no walls or floors in the way.
+ Can see clearly in the dark with night mode.
+ Sound sensitivity is great and can be adjusted.
+ Long battery life.
+ Camera movement control from monitor is awesome.
+ The video/audio between camera and monitor is encrypted and secure.
+ Setup was super easy.
+ Super portable (just fits in your pocket for on the go unlike the large touch screens).
+ Value for your buck

Cons:
- Range sucks through walls and floors.
- Doesn't switch to night mode until it is really dark in the room or sensor is covered for a second.
- Unable to manually switch from night mode to day mode (can only control the brightness).
- Currently unable to use with smartphone.
- Although the image is very clear during the day and night it's still low resolution for todays standards.

I had high hopes for this product...

I received this monitor as a gift about a month ago, and was very pleased in the beginning and would have given it 5 stars. However the past two weeks has been a different story. The picture is extremely blurry, and the signal strength bounces around and cuts out even in the next room! I am very disappointed in this monitor.

Keep going back

this is my second Levana astra. The first monitor unfortunately stopped working after 1 year. I went with a cheaper monitor but just was not satisfied after having had the asta for 1 year. My favorite feature is the PEEP/VOX mode. this allows the monitor to stay off until the baby makes a sound. The monitor even stays off despite a sound machine in the room! My only wish is that this model had a temperature option on it. overall great monitor

Efficacité

Je suis impressionnée par la qualité de l'image, le son répond aux exigences, mais la portée demeure faible ; en effet je ne peux être dans ma cours avec le moniteur compte tenu que la chambre se trouve à l'avant de la maison et ce, malgré le fait que la maison ne soit pas très grande!

Great monitor for the price!

Bought this monitor about 3 weeks ago. It has lots of great features. Took me a minute to figure out how to use the peep mode, but eventually figured it out after looking on Levana website for answers. Good picture quality. Athough we had to put black tape over the night vision sensor to be able to get it to kick into night vision. My daughter always sleeps with a nightlight so I think that is what was throwing the night vision off. All in all a great monitor for the price.

Great Extra Eyes

I needed to have a monitor that would help us to monitor my toddler while he was in his room. He is very active and this helps to be able to remotely move the camera to follow his activity, and use the voice feature to prevent him from getting into too much. I like the feature of the monitor only turning on with noise, and the threshold does not pickup the sound machine which is great because he needs it for sleep. After purchasing an additional camera, it helps to also scan between his room and our infant to know what is going on, especially when they wake up. This was a great purchase and we are satisfied.
