Infant Optics DXR 8 Video Baby Monitor Review: Product Overview and Performance
This camera features the pan, tilt and zoom capabilities, which allows the parents to adjust the angle of the camera without having to enter their sleeping child’s room. Also included are eight LED sensors for the night vision feature. Users can also pop in the 2X optical zoom lens if the camera is placed far from the crib. One of the best features on this camera is the USB port, which allows the user to charge it with the use of any type of cable. Navigating through the camera’s menu is also very simple. Next to the display screen you’ll find the four way controller, with a shortcut button that allows for quicker access to brightness and volume. The push to talk option allows the users to speak and soothe their infant without having to enter the room. A temperature monitor is also included, however it will not alert you if the room becomes too hot or cold, which is a common feature on other models of video baby monitors. On the back of the camera is a stand that flips out, which makes it easy to place upright.
What Consumers had to say about the DXR 8 by Infant Optics
Consumers had some complaints regarding the clarity of the video during night vision mode, stating that it was somewhat blurry. The unit’s battery is able to provide ten hours of runtime when the screen is off and with frequent checks involving switching the screen on and off during the night you’ll have about twelve hours of battery life total. With the screen switched on the whole time you’ll have approximately six hours of battery life. There isn’t much of a warning when it comes to low battery life alerts, however it will notify you once there is only an hour of juice left.
The wireless reception leaves much to be desired. The unit may repeatedly display random out of signal alerts even when you’re inside the home. While it’s able to display video for approximately 200 feet away, the feed will frequently cut out, even if you’re using the external antenna.
How Consumers Rated the Infant Optics Video Baby Monitor
