Simple and affordable, the DXR-5 2.4GHz Digital Video Baby Monitor with Night Vision from Infant Optics comes packed with features so you can watch over your baby privately, securely and with zero interference. A large 2.4″ TFT screen (320 x 240 resolution) with a super sensitive built-in microphone captures each and every precious moment. The system boasts 2.4GHz static-free (digital) wireless transmission covering distances of up to 800ft in open areas and 150ft in enclosed areas. The wireless baby monitor also eliminates interference from other wireless household devices like cordless phones, video game controllers and wireless routers. FHSS (Automatic Frequency Hopping System) jumps between different channels in the 2.4GHz range, virtually ‘encrypting’ the data, ensuring others will not be intercepting your precious video and audio feed. Night vision means you can keep an eye on your baby even when sleeping up to 10ft away from the camera. When lights go down, the automatic IR vision turns on and the system adjusts to the level of light. Power-saving features include automatic voice activation power-saving mode, shutting the unit down automatically if no noise is sensed for 3 minutes and a built-in audio shutoff module, designed to eliminate any white noise or static when the sound level is below a predetermined level for 10 seconds. The DXR-5 comes with a handy camera stand and can be wall mounted as well, so you can easily view your baby in its crib as well as see all other parts of the nursery.
This monitor provides clear video and audio
With how inexpensive this baby monitor is I was worried that it would be low quality or wouldn’t work. I decided to give it a shot and, I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised. It has very clear audio so I can not only hear if my son is crying but also if he is just making noises. I like this because then he doesn’t get worked up to the point of crying before I can go pick him up. The video is also very clear and I can see everything. I was quite shocked by this because I thought that at the very least it would be grainy but I haven’t noticed that at all. It also has night vision which comes in handy because my son loves to sleep in a completely dark room. This way I can still see him without having to bother him.
Infant optics is a great investment
This monitor was extremely easy to set up in my son’s nursery. It was only like a ten minute job and then it was ready for use. It has a low battery and out-of-range signal that beeps quite loudly which I like because I don’t have to worry that my baby will wake up and I won’t be able to hear him. A big pro about this monitor is the price point. A lot of the baby monitors out there can get really pricey really fast but this monitor is relatively affordable while still providing excellent quality.
This monitor stopped working after 10 months
After around ten months of daily use, this monitor started to lose its display. Everything would go white and I would have to turn the monitor off and back on. Because I had a one-year warranty I contacted the company and they sent me a new unit without any hassle or making me send my old unit back. I would love to see the unit made to last longer but as far as customer service goes this company is winning. I have also noticed that the batteries on this monitor die fairly quickly. It is rechargeable so I don’t mind that so much because I don’t have to replace batteries but I feel like this is something that the manufacturer could fix.
The DXR-5 is a great product
I honestly think that this product is worth the money despite the flaws. Especially with the impeccable customer service and warranty. I would definitely repurchase this if I needed to and I will most likely be using this with my next child. I love that I can point this directly at my son’s crib and watch him as well as listen to him. It gives me great peace of mind and it means that I don’t have to go check on him as often throughout the night. I highly recommend checking this monitor out if you are in the market for a cheap, good quality monitor!
