    I bought the Mobi Cam for my first granddaughter. My daughter and son-in-law live in a 3 story town house and they did buy a monitor but only with sound. When I saw this I thought it would save them the trip of running up circular stairs just to check on the baby. Anyone who has a new baby knows that you are always running to “check on the baby” with every sound they make. Well, when they installed the Mobi Cam they loved it …. This even shows the baby in the dark bedroom!! No more wondering if the baby is just fussing or really needs your attention. This works!

    This monitor works well. The only drawback is that it has a short range and if you have other wireless devices in your house (Wireless network, wireless phones, etc) it picks up interference and you get static.

    11/27/09 Update: I have posted my original monitor review below. Before, my only complaint was that it was “staticky” and I had to move the receiver around to positions where it wouldn’t interfere with other devices. After about six months of use however, it made a loud permanent buzzing sound whenever I turned the volume on regardless of where it was placed. It was so annoying it was unusable. The only way it was tolerable if I turned on the video portion only but kept the sound off which didn’t work for me since I’m not always looking at the monitor, especially at night when I’m sleeping!

    I called Mobicam to see if I could get a replacement but the length of their policy is something pathetic like a month.

    I ended up buying Summer Infant Deluxe Day & Night Handheld Color Video Monitor with 2.5″ Screen – Blue (Infant Deluxe Day & Night Handheld Color Video Monitor with 2.5″ Screen) as a replacement which I’m MUCH happier with even though it as it’s own drawbacks. I will also write a review for that.

    5/9/09: Love/hate relationship with this monitor (Original Review)

    We had our heart set on a video monitor (not just an audio one) and it was between this and Summer. We decided on this one because of the Internet option so we could see our little guy from work.

    When the monitor works, it works FANTASTICALLY. We can see our baby both during the day and at night due to the infrared. I like being able to see his eyes — if they are closed, I leave him be even if he’s whimpering/crying because it means he’ll be able to go back to sleep on his own. If they are open, I go to to see what’s bothering him.

    That was the love part. The hate part is that there is static galore. The monitor flickers and buzzes even if you place anything near it — it doesn’t even have to be anything electrical in nature, the screen fizzes out even if you put your hand by the monitor. If you have a wireless phone, it will crackle louder than the TV in Poltergeist. It is super annoying and I spent a lot of time finding the perfect spot to place the monitor where it wouldn’t be affected by anything and where I could still see it.

    We have our unit on continuous video monitoring so we always plug it into an A/C outlet, otherwise, we would go through way too many batteries.

    I wish we could purchase another video monitor so we can leave one in our room and put one downstairs.

    As of now, we haven’t really used the Internet option. If that feature isn’t important to you, I would try the Summer unit instead since that’s the one our friends recommend and it seems to have pretty good reviews on Amazon.

    Purchased the mobicam shortly after our son was born, and was initially pleased — good daytime and night-time view. However, the static and interference was horrible. I couldn’t sleep with the volume turned on b/c the static woke me up over and over. Then, after 4.5 months, the night vision stopped working, which to me is the whole point of having a monitor. We purchased the Summer Best View monitor today and it works 1000 times better. NO STATIC!! Great picture. Don’t waste your money with the mobicam — spend a little extra and get one that won’t disappoint.

    I bought the Mobi Cam on amazon at a great price ($50 less than the MSRP) and I’m impressed with the performance so far. We were using an old Graco baby monitor (not a video) so this is a huge upgrade for us. We were able to plug-n-play very easily. The picture is VERY clear – i can see the whites of my baby’s eyes from more than 6 feet with the night vision. And the audio portion is great – I can hear my baby breathing! We use this unit in our single family home and there is no static or interference. Occasionally we’ll get a little static but that only happens once per week or so — realy nothing to even complain about. We only use these units with the AC adapterts, so I can’t comment on the battery-life. I love this unit and would definitely recommend!

    I usually don’t take time to write reviews, but I had to on this one. This has been the only monitor I have had for almost 4 months since my daughter was born. No matter WHAT I did I had constant interference. I unplugged all of the cordless phones and WiFi… anything that made sense for the problem. It got better, but still constant “police radio” noises came out of it. I could not sleep through this and was at my wits end. I found that there is a mode that the monitors are in standby until she cries, so that was better but when the sound subsides and it stops sending the god awful police radio sound LOUDLY blasts from the monitor. I already had to leave the thing in another room to try to sleep through that, but all my daughter would do was sniffle and inevitably that is what woke me up.. the monitor. Oh and this is just being in the next room… it isn’t like we are far away. I finally bought a nice digital Graco today and it is totally silent. No, there is no video but we aren’t currently using the video anyway. I hated how the bright light shines right in my daughters face for the night vision… I can’t see that that will help her sleep at all. When she is older and moving around, I might turn the audio OFF and just use it for video.. when I can see through the static. Oh and it will DRAIN your batteries if you want to tote it around constantly on.. you will be buying 4 AA batteries for each every day. if you use the mode where it turns on when they cry I am sure it will last longer… and if you don’t use the video. Basically, it is NOT a good monitor if you want to spend time outside. It is also very heavy and cumbersome to carry in your pocket.

    I also bought the part to hook it up to the internet. The software, camera and computer refuse to talk to each other. The software is old.

    So, I generally hate this thing and if I had purchased it myself at the store I would have taken it back. Buyer beware.

    So, I recieved this monitor as a gift at my baby shower. I recieved a total of 4 baby monitors, but since this was the only video one, I kept it and returned the others. I had no idea how comforting it would be to have a video monitor! It’s great to be able to see him when he makes noise, and to see if he’s just fussing or needs me or whatever. The night vision works great, but the colors are muted with the daytime view. Not a big deal, as far as I’m concerned because you can still see baby well. Does have occasional issues with static, but sometimes you just have to move around the monitor or camera and the problem can be solved. (Surprised that we’ve only had minimal issues with interference given all of the electronics/cordless devices in our home).

    Here comes the BUT… part:

    So, we’ve been using the monitor for six months now, and this morning it stopped working. We’ve had occasional problems where you would switch it on, and there would be no power to the monitor. Sometimes it took a couple of times and it would come on. (This is using the DC adapter, not batteries). I tried everything to get it to come on, switching outlets, putting batteries in, and nothing. So, I called Mobi directly (since it was a gift, I didn’t know where it was from. I didn’t have a reciept, or fill out a warranty card. So I took my chances and called them. What could they do? Say no?) I talked to a guy named Andy, super nice and understanding. I am to ship my monitor to him, and he’ll bench test it. If it doesn’t work, he’ll send me a new one. Fair enough.

    So, I guess that’s why I’m giving it four stars, instead of three. Customer service on Mobi’s part seems well worth it. I guess we’ll see what happens in a few days when I get it back!

    My wife bought this monitor so that we could keep an eye on our sleeping baby when we’re not in the room.

    It seemed at first like a decent product, but has today revealed itself to be a terrible one.

    PROS:

    Night vision mode automatically comes on, allowing video monitoring of your baby at night.

    CONS:

    Poor battery life if using batteries.

    Terrible interference problems, and not just with computers or lamps, but with inanimate objects or nothing at all – maybe ghosts??

    Camera has a TINY range of motion, limiting the places you can put it and still see the baby.

    Cheaply made and too lightweight – if you don’t have batteries in the camera, the mere weight of the the cord is enough to pull it out of alignment.

    UNFORGIVABLE CON:

    It broke; it now emits a constant 60-cycle hum at any volume except the lowest possible, which makes it useless for monitoring your baby’s sounds. Several reviews on here indicate that this is a permanent problem. This product is abysmal, and no one should buy it. The people who have not yet experienced problems, will eventually, I am convinced. F—–, DO NOT BUY.

    This monitor is great. I can watch my daughter from downstairs and know that she is in her bed or playing and if she is really crying for me or just falling asleep. It is so great and worth every penny. Great Picture and Sound.
