The video monitor works well even with the camera on the top floor and the monitor in the basement two floors down. My only complaint is that the camera must be plugged in at all times (the monitor doesn't, only the camera) so it limits where it can be set up around the crib or else you need and extension cord, but this is really a trivial issue.
Was suggested this monitor from a fellow momma and the features are good but the range is terrible. We live in a townhouse (1000sf between 2 floors) and looses signal constantly. So frustrating. Won't hold the signal overnight from our room to the baby room and it's just down the hall. Wouldn't suggest it to anyone. Will likely have to buy another monitor and we've only had this one for 6 months!
Was ok at first
Out of the box the picture was clear and the range was great. However the monitor did not last long. Within a year the antenna was already starting to fail and just over a year I can be standing outside my sons room with the monitor in my hand and it Won’t have a signal. In my opinion, it’s not worth the cost for the short life span.
Great product for price
The video quality is good. We get a clear view of what baby is doing. I like the tilt & zoom features. The sound quality isn't great but I love that there are visual signals to alert you when baby is up & making noise.
I got this for my baby shower and it is a great product !
Simple Camera, great customer service
We bought this camera for our first baby and purchased this additional camera for our second baby. It’s a simple monitor that gets the job done without overconplicating anything. You can see your baby in color during the day and clearly at night with the night vision. We paired the second camera so easily and it’s great we can see both cameras from one display in two different rooms. After a year (under warranty), our first camera had issues turning on the night vision, so I emailed their customer service and after sending a couple photos, they replaced the camera for free (minus shipping the broken one back) and it works great again!
We bought this monitor after our last one quit working. We love that the charge cord for this one is not a mini USB. You don't have to worry about which way you plug it in- especially in the dark in the middle of the night. The PEEP mode, where the monitor is only activated when triggered by sound is the best feature, not sure how we went with out it before. We highly recommend this monitor!!
The quality of this camera and the features can't be beat. It's at a great price point! I wish I would have known about the open box items since they come with the same exact warranty and customer service at the new ones in store. I highly recommend this camera-it would be nice if they came out with a SIDS mat like angelcare. Levana's camera is so much better than the angelcare one I returned.
This is actually my second Astra. I have a second child on the the way and my two year old broke the first monitor. I tried another brand and returned it the next day. I knew I wanted another Astra. Love the range on this monitor. Good picture, just wish screen was a little larger. I don't need something to monitor temperature or the option to take photos so I like that this is a simple, good monitor. I'm giving it 4 stars simply because when my daughter takes afternoon naps, the camera can't distinguish if it should go into night mode so a lot of times the screen is black because the room just isn't dark enough for night vision but is too dark for the daytime vision.
Decent but terrible picture in low light
This unit is decent I guess. It has all the features you need and the battery lasts forever on the battery saving mode. In this mode, it ignores the minor noise which is great as my baby is a loud sleeper but it always hears her when she is awake and turns on.
My issue and it's a big one: it has a TERRIBLE picture in low lights which is 75% of the time that I use the monitor. Bright light and night mode are great though. It also makes a light beeping noise when the unit is on, even if there is no noise in the room. It makes it hard to hear the actual baby noises you want to hear.
We got this before Baby was born. It works well throughout the entire house.
Decent but not great
The monitor is easy to use and works well for the most part (video is clear and I like the features available), but we’ve had 2 issues:
1. During the day when we have the blackout blinds down, the tiny crack of light that comes in from the sides of the blind trigger the light sensor on the camera, turning night vision off, but since it’s actually dark in the room we can’t see much on the video because it’s just dark. Our solution is to tape the light sensor so that it always thinks it is dark in the room.
2. The battery doesn’t seem to last very long so I leave it plugged in almost all the time. The few times I’ve used it unplugged, the battery seems to drain quite quickly.
Great monitor but haven't used it for even a year and the battery doesn't hold a charge anymore so it has to be plugged in the time.
horrible battery life
Great monitor just the battery life only last 5 months. Have to have it plugged in all the time now
