I bought this camera and am very happy with it. The picture is very clear both in daytime light and using night vision. Had some troubles with a battery and customer service was amazing and sent me a new one right away and have had no problems since. Very happy with this purchase.
Great picture, but constant static noise
This has a great picture can see my babe easily daytime or nighttime. However it has a constant static sound whenever the screen on.
Great monitor for nightime
We purchased the monitor after being frustrated with how loud our old one was at night (competitors brand, not Levana). Baby sleeps with a sound machine all night so we were constantly hearing an echo with our old monitor, even when baby was sleeping. Since we've switched over to the Levana Astra I absolutely love the peep mode and we are getting more sleep during the night as a result! The peep mode function conserves a considerable amount of battery life by basically going into sleep mode until it detect that baby is crying. The monitor then powers back up automatically. It does not however detect background noise like a sound machine which is great. No more echo in mom and dad's bedroom!
The one feature that I would say could be improved is the daytime vision. It basically looks like a grey screen, despite having blackout shades in the room. Not ideal for naps when you're trying to look at your baby.
At nighttime the monitor is very clear, both sound and vision.
Day Two Screen/Camera Malfunctions
The set up of this camera was easy. It worked perfectly for two days. On day three, for some reason, the screen and sound stopped working. The screen lights up but there are lines through it, so the picture isn’t clear. We’ve tried turning it on and off, letting it rest, etc, but no luck.
UPDATE: we unplugged the camera and plugged it back in. It fixed the issue. Hopefully, it doesn’t happen again!
We originally had a different monitor that worked over WIFI... it wasn't up to par. We went with this one and are very pleased. The video resolution is very clear, the sound quality is great, and the controls are easy to use.
Customer Service - Astra
I bought this baby monitor a year ago and noticed that the battery life started to diminish (would only last not more than 5 mins.). I contacted Customer Service and Darrielle was an amazing rep to speak to. She sent me a replacement battery fairly quickly. Now my monitor is back to its brand new self. Thanks a lot Darrielle! Other than the battery issue, I love this baby monitor. Make sure you purchase extended warranty in case anything else happens. It's definitely worth it.
We received this as a shower gift last May and just started using it as we transitioned our daughter to her own room and crib. The only use it had prior to this past week was setting it up and testing it. Today I went to charge the screen and our cord had stopped working. Unacceptable considering the product is brand new and only been used for a few hours at this point. I’ll be contacting customer service in the morning.
I received the monitor at my shower and have finally been able to use it. I love that it is very portable and easy to set up. The best feature is probably the ability to move the camera without being in the room. That way I don’t interrupt my baby sleeping just so I can move the camera to be able to see her.
Clear view and easy to use
Have been using for a week or so and find it very convenient. Love that the screen shuts off until there is sound to trigger it. Also love the music function, I find it calms my son and buys me extra time on his naps when he is fussy. So far battery life has been good.
Great baby monitor
I have been using this monitor to watch and hear my now six week old and it is great! I am able to see clearly on the video monitor and hear my little one as well
We received this as a Christmas gift and set it all up. Picture quality is great, the monitor turns on from sleep mode with the slightest sound or moment. We haven't had any issues with this camera.
Can’t see anything from 7:30am-7:30pm
The monitor is good for nighttime; however during daytime naps, you will not be able to see anything. I do not recommend this product unless you are only using for night time sleep.
Poor video quality
I live in sunny FL but you wouldn’t guess that looking at the monitor. Even on the sunniest days it looks dark and grainy and the “night vision” is nonexistent.
I haven’t yet used it yet for my baby, but testing it out, it seems to work pretty good. The one thing I was a little disappointed in is that the video is in black and white and not in color.
Night vision range up to 12ft under ideal conditions. Objects at or beyond this range may be partially or completely obscured, depending on the camera application.
Optimum range is 200ft when signal is passing through walls or floors. Microwave ovens (when in use) may cause signal disruption at close range. Buildings with metal frames may also cause signal disruption. Maximum transmission range is 750 feet.
Strangulation Hazard: Children can become entangled in cords. Power cords should be kept more than 3 feet away from the crib and baby’s reach at all times. Baby monitors/cameras with power cords should never be hung on or near the crib. This product is not a toy.
This product contains small parts. Exercise care when unpacking and assembling the product.
This product cannot replace responsible adult supervision. Check your child’s safety at regular intervals and make sure your monitor is always adequately charged.
