Quick and Easy Operation
The two-channel Quiet Sounds installs in just minutes without any tools, so you can enjoy the benefits of wireless video and audio monitoring right away. Compact and lightweight, the monitor can then be attached to the included belt clip or simply placed on any flat surface (a stand is included); you can also use the included mounting hardware and mount it to a wall.
Once installed, the 900 MHz camera transmits clear pictures and sounds to the video monitor with ranges up to 350 feet (clear line of sight) and 100 feet (obstructed). And it’s a snap to add up to two more cameras (sold separately) if you wish to simultaneously monitor more rooms, an option that’s especially convenient as your family grows.
Crystal Clear Reception
This handheld monitor utilizes the latest FM band technology to provide crystal clear reception. In addition, it has an easy to read, 1.8-inch, high resolution, full color LCD display and LED sound lights. Most importantly, this monitoring solution avoids interference caused by other 2.4GHz devices commonly found in the home–like 2.4 GHz cordless phones and wireless 802.11 computer networks–so you won’t have to worry about excessive static.
Keep Track of Baby at Night
One of the most helpful and unique features of the Quiet Sounds monitor is its night vision capabilities, which allow parents to check up on their sleeping baby without disturbing his or her rest. Nine built-in infrared LEDs permit the camera to view clear black and white images within a distance of up to six feet in total darkness.
Another night-time option is to turn off the video button and choose the audio-only option. A super sensitive microphone built into the camera alerts sleeping parents that their baby is making noises, crying or moving around in his or her crib.
Long lasting and Reliable
This sleek plastic monitor comes with rechargeable batteries that lasts up to 10 hours. It also boasts a power-saver feature that times out after three minutes when running on the battery. For added convenience, external audio/video outputs provide connections to existing video recorder or home television, and you can even purchase headphone jacks for private monitoring.
What’s in the Box
Video camera with transmitter, handheld monitor with receiver, two AC power adapters, rechargeable battery pack for monitor, wall mount bracket and hardware for camera, belt clip and stand for monitor, and user’s manual
Summer Infant Day and Night Handheld Color Video Monitor reviews from buyer :-
The night vision feature works well only at close range. I was actually concerned about the IRLED (Infrared Light Emitting Diode) that is used to illuminate the area being monitored. We had our monitor mounted above the crib looking straight down on our son about 5 feet away. I noticed that there are times that my son will just lie contently in his crib staring upwards towards the monitor and I was concerned about the amount of IR that was hitting his eyes. I did a bunch of research on the web and couldn’t find any recorded instances of damage to vision from these types of LED’s. These LED’s are the same type that is used in cameras and pretty much all consumer products that require some type of nighttime illumination. I then called Summer Infant in Rhode Island to inquire about the affect that these LED’s might have on my child’s vision. The customer service was very polite but, had no information regarding the LED’s. It took me three calls to finally get somebody higher up to call me back to try and answer my question. He basically did the same thing that I did which was to surf the net and he ended up with the same information that already had. So the jury is still out as far as any type of vision damage that may occur. As for the location of our monitor, I have since moved it off to the side and a little further away which now makes the picture a little darker and harder to see.
Sound and lights
The sound reception is very good and very sensitive. You could probably hear a pin drop. The LED’s that are the visual aide to the sound are quite bright. I actually found them to be too bright at night. The basic design of the receiver necessitates it being placed on a night stand close to your bed and probably facing you if you intend on viewing the monitor at any given time. If there is any noise, like maybe your child breathing, the LED’s will light up. After about 15 or 20 minutes of the LED’s shining in my face, I remedied the situation with a piece of white tape. Now I can still see the LED’s but, they aren’t lighting up our bedroom like a disco.
Reception, battery and portability
There can be some static but, like everybody before me has said… “If there is static, all you have to do is move the receiver a bit and the static will go away”. The portability is a huge convenience and the rechargeable battery lasts a long time. We sometimes leave our receiver unplugged over night and it is still working fine in the morning. We haven’t had any issues with the stand breaking or malfunctioning.
Yes it is expensive. Probably a little too expensive for the older type of technology that is incorporated into it’s design (900 MHz). Just remember… You are paying for peace of mind and in today’s crazy lifestyle something like that is priceless.
