Bought two of this brand over 2 yrs ago & haven't had any issues with either of them so I was surprised with the negative reviews! They seem to work fine for my daughter & at G'ma's house. The battery life seems to be very good for portability. You would need to stay within the listed distance of the monitor for monitoring the child & position the camera so you have full view of the area you are monitoring. We mounted ours on the wall positioned at the sleeping area & like that you can even see the child in minimum lighting. Video monitoring is so much better than the audio monitors I used when my daughter was younger!
We are enjoying the versatility of this monitor. The sound and movement adjustments are useful for placing the baby in various locations.
The second pad allows for portability with the first to stay in the primary location.
Sound across this monitor is great, with no feedback or white noise. It also works at long distances so I can hear the baby while working in the yard. The alarm goes off very rarely, and I have never felt it was a false alarm, except for when my baby has moved to the far edge of the mattress. The only thing I do not like about this is that I can not disable the alarm feature permanently, as my baby is 10 months and the risk of SIDS is virtually gone.
