Monitor won't stay on
This monitor has treated us great for 11 months. Just recently it started beeping telling us the battery is low while it is still plugged in. Then it randomly turns off. It's now discontinued so I'm not sure there's anything that can be done to fix it.
Updated Review - Dangerous Product, Near Fatality
We have been using this system (Ovia) for over a year now. We needed to expand the number of cameras and this was an affordable option. Our first hand unit got poor reception, Levana delivered us a new one and we sent the old one. The new one did not get any better reception and had another defect. It turns itself off randomly.
One night, I was working late in our home office and when I was walking to the bedroom I heard our infant screaming. I went into the bedroom where my wife was sleeping and the monitor had turned itself off. I ran upstairs and our baby had managed to unswaddle herself and pull the blanket over her face and couldn't get it off. This was a very close call and I fear what could have happened if I had not been up late that evening.
I bought this monitor 1 year ago. Works perfect and has a good battery life!
Gets the job done for the price
This monitor gets the job done of allowing is to see and hear our daughter without having to go into her room, however, the picture quality is not all that great in the dark. Battery life is a factor as it will onky survive 3-4 hours unplugged. I leave it plugged in overnight, so this is an avoidable issue. However, this is my second monitor as the DC plug on the first one became loose and therefore would not charge the monitor. I am sure the updated Levana vidoe monitors are much better now, but hopefully this one will last for another couple of years.
Great product, ease of use, great night vision.
Overall the product is great. I like the night vision, the battery life is tremendously extended when using PEEP mode. It's really the only way you can get hours out of the device. Range on this unit is quite impressive. I can actually keep the signal across my street at my neighbors home. I like the color coded led for how loud Brooke is if she cries. My issues were initially with battery life, PEEP mode solves this, thanks to Treasure, and unfortunately my pan feature works intermittently. Another downfall was the egg shape, very difficult for viewing and set up.
My 5 star review is really around customer service. Treasure Saccone has helped me as my unit was defective. Her response time and attention to detail is impressive. Owning a business and dealing with clients everyday. I would hire her in a second. Truly appreciate you and thanks again for all your help.
I purchased this product in hopes it would provide clear video to monitor our first child. I have had it for almost a year now and I am extremely disappointed in this product. It is not as advertised. I am glad it is now discontinued so others can't purchase this product. I have numerous complaints about this device.
1. As seen in the ads, the video is clear, colourful and crisp looking. This is far from the truth. It does not produce any vibrant colours, in fact it will produce a purple hue most of the time;
2. I do like the fact you can control the angle from the hand held monitor, however, it is slow in response;
3. The connection on the power cord to the monitor is poor in design. It is easily damaged. It can bend causing a poor connection causing the monitor to sporadically charge/not charge. Having to turn the cable and hoping it starts to charge is not ideal for an electronic device. Then when it starts charging you hope it stays there and charges all the way, which it doesn't and the battery drains without you realizing it until it starts beeping at 2am, even though it is plugged in; and
4. The monitor display is on a timer and will not stay on. There should be an option to have it stay on without the screen going black. It does go on when a baby makes a noise, but there are times when you don't want the black screen and want it to stay on for viewing.
Great monitor for the price
Was quite pleased with this monitor
Only down side was battery life and also the distance the screen can go from the monitor
Pretty Good Monitor
I have used this monitor now for 3 months. It works quite well thus far with only a few flaws. I initially wanted to set this on a shelf that was mounted to the wall next to the baby's crib. Unfortunately the camera did not move vertically down far enough to see the entire crib from the wall-mounted shelf. So, we mounted the monitor directly to the wall, using the horizontal movements to view the entire crib, which has worked great. You can zoom in to see a close up of the baby while in the crib, but it's quite pixelated when zoomed in. Another flaw is the picture/video capture mode. I personally don't use this often, as I don't need night vision images of my sleeping child, but I accidentally took some pictures while messing with the monitor. The monitor will not let me view or delete them. It allows me to go to the folder where the pictures are stored and then it appears to freeze, not allowing me to push any buttons other than the return button to get back to viewing my sleeping baby. Again, this is a minor issue since I don't intend to use that function. The color changing indicator is nice and rather sensitive, which I like. I use a sound machine in my child's room and the color changing indicator is always switching between blue and green simply based on the noises the sound machine is emitting. The color indicator comes in handy when I don't have my glasses on and can't see my baby in the screen, but I can see the colors to know if she's awake and making noises. Another flaw is the battery life. We do leave our screen on continuously, and the battery will last for one night. But once it gets down to two bars, it seems to be completely dead within minutes. Luckily it beeps before completely dying, so I know to get up and plug it into the charger. But, once it indicates that the battery is low, it is completely dead in a very short time. Overall, this is a very useful product and I am pleased with our purchase thus far.
Great value but needs sound sensitivity and temp!
I bought this monitor when my son turned one and we needed to be able to see him on video - it's a very good monitor, especially for the price. However it needs a sound sensitivity function as well as a temperature function!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this monitor!
We just love being able to hear and see our baby while he's sleeping and to know that he's ok. Any kind of sound the monitor will come out of peep mode to alert you and depending on what baby is doing you can react as needed. I love how you can zoom into the crib if needed as well as scan the room...I'm sure this feature will come in handy when he's a little older :) We recently had an issue with the monitor sound and customer service was really helpful in fixing our issue...very easy and pleasant to work with.
It does the job, but not great!
I bought this baby monitor with the 2 camera set about 8 months ago for my first born son.
Overall the monitor has done a great job at helping me and my wife keep an eye on the baby from a different room. The night vision portion camera is great, we can see the baby in a very dark room. Also, the battery life in the monitor and seems to be pretty good.
The sound quality descent.
The down side with the monitor is the picture quality. On the Levana website, and even on the box that the monitor came in, the monitor looks like it has a clear vivid picture but in reality, the picture is not very crisp and clear on the monitor even when the camera is used in a well lit room. The picture looks darker and the colors look different to the color of the actual items that are viewed through the cameras / monitor; adjusting the brightness and contrast does not help much.
Overall, the monitor does the job, but I would recommend a different model instead.
Great for 2 kids
We bought this monitor with our first baby and extended with a second camera when our second came along. We have never had any issues, and the monitor has stood up to its fair share of drops and oops moments. Would have been great if this came with the charging cradle, because we ended up purchasing for added convenience. Highly recommend the cradle addition. I have recommended Levana to many friends.
large handheld screen and perfect view of room
I received this device as a gift and we love it. Sometimes we lose signal or it's a bit choppy when we're only 10-15 feet away (contacted levana to trouble shoot and it seems like the signals are getting mixed up because of other devices ie. phones, iPads...etc.).
SO far we're satisfied with the device (we've only been using it for 2 months on and off).
Decent for first video monitor
I've had this video monitor for over a year now and its served its purpose for most part. I guess the one thing I found that kinda sucked is that I couldn't bring the device outside to monitor my child as it was out of reach, where I had a regular non video monitor that cost 5x less that still worked when I brought it outside. I like how you can take pictures and videos from the monitor but I find it pointless if you can't really transfer the pictures/ video onto a computer. The zoom I dont think is all that good and would be extremely blurry. But picture without zoom was pretty decent (its hard to compare without being able to view in store and compare the picture in person). Overall for my first time video monitor I was satisfied for most part up until now where the sound to the monitor has totally stopped working and it hasn't even been two years. For the amount of money you spend on things like this, they most definitely should last a lot longer then that especially since this item has mostly stayed put in my room plugged in and hasn't dropped on any hard surface at all.
Night vision range up to 15ft under ideal conditions. Objects at or beyond this range may be partially or completely obscured, depending on the camera application.
Optimum range is 150 feet 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 750ft.
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.
