  • It is not very durable and does not have a long lifespan
  • The battery life of the handheld monitor is not very good
  • The monitor can have glitches that can interfere with the connection
  • It does not offer recording options


The Summer Infant Sure Sight comes with a handheld monitor that easily fits into your pocket and a camera with a strong sturdy base. The image quality is very good and the colors are bright.

The camera has the added feature of a blue nightlight that can soothe your little one if she gets a bit fussy. You can also control the nightlight remotely from the handheld monitor.

You can also buy up to 3 additional cameras that you can pair with one monitor so you can have views from different angles, or keep track of different rooms. It also has very little noise or signal interference for a monitor in this price range.

On the negative side it is not the most durable monitor out there and its lifespan can be very limited. The battery life of the remote monitor is really not great and needs to spend most of its time plugged in.

The monitor can also have a few glitches which might mean you aren’t connected for the camera for a few minutes. This is not great if you might not hear your baby cry without it. You cant record any of the images from the monitor


When we compare the Summer Infant Sure Sight to other baby monitors it does really well. It is a good contender in the mid-range category and is very reasonably priced.

It is user friendly and you wont need to spend hours reading the manual to be able to operate it or install it. The zoom feature works well and is a nice addition that other cameras in this price range does not offer. It is also unique with the nightlight feature.

This baby monitor is secure and private because it does not connect to Wi-Fi. This means there is no possibility that you can hack into this camera like you can with other connected types of monitors.

But where some of its competitors offers different ways of recording the video from the camera this Summer Infant Sure Sight only offers live viewing.  You will also not be able to connect it other devices like you can with Wi-Fi cameras.


This is a good mid-range baby monitor. It wont cost you an arm and a leg and will do its job well for the money you spent.  The Summer Infant Sure sight has good image quality and the nightlight is a unique and useful feature.

It is also secure because it does not connect to any Wi-Fi networks. It might be both a good and a bad thing. It offers excellent privacy and security, but less versatility and range.

So depending on your needs it can fit in really well with your home and the way you care for your baby. In this case you need to weigh up price, durability and your needs to decide if this monitor is for you.

If you are willing to spend a little more, there are monitors available that can give you a longer life and more versatile options. On the other hand,  if you like the sturdy camera and the nightlight and have budget to keep in line, this is a good choice.

This baby monitor from Motorola has a good range of positive features to keep you as parent quite happy. You can either use it as a portable receiver and rely on the batteries or you can leave it plugged in and save a little battery power.

If you want to save even more power you can also easily turn off the LCD screen. It is reliable and will give you years of service. It comes with added lullabies that you can control remotely.

That way your little one can listen to some music while you get on with the housework.  The monitor has good image quality so you can clearly see what is happening even when the room is dark.

You don’t need to be very tech savvy to be able to set it up and there is support available if you get stuck.

On the negative side there are a few points as well that you should be aware of. You need to keep track of the power cords because extra ones are not sold separately.

You cant access the camera via a smartphone so you can only use the monitor that it is paired with.  The camera mount is not included so you will need to mount it with something like tape.

The range of a 1000ft is in a straight line with no obstructions so in your home it might be quite a bit shorter. The image can be a bit blurry when there is a lot of motion.


This monitor compares well to standard types of baby monitors but it does not have the versatility of monitors that can connect to a smartphone for instance. It does not offer recording functions but does have programmed lullabies that gives it a boost above some of its competitors.

It is very easy to set up compared to Wi-Fi monitors that need to be connected to your home network. The image quality is good but the audio is not as great as more expensive types. For its price range it performs reasonably well.


The Motorola MBP 33XL baby monitor does what it promises. It has a good range (if there are no major obstructions in its way) and it is reliable. The additional feature of programmed lullabies is handy and can help soothe your baby while you get on with daily tasks.

It can be paired with up to 4 cameras so you can monitor tow rooms at the same time. Great for keeping tabs of toddlers and newborns.  All things considered, this is a good mid range baby monitor to give you a little peace of mind while you work in your house or yard.

If you need more versatility consider a monitor that is able to connect to a smartphone or tablet.

We will also give you our verdict. The FREDI Baby monitor has two way talking and is completely wireless and has a unique comical design. You can access the camera from your tablet or smartphone and you can adjust the camera remotely as well.

It can pan 355 degrees and tilt 90 degrees so you can avoid blind spots in your baby’s room. It has high quality optics and allows you to see at night with high contrast infrared.

But let’s take a closer look at how well these features perform. That way you can clearly see if can trust it to help you keep an eye on your little one.

FREDI Wireless Camera Baby Monitor 720P HD Wireless Security Camera With Two-Way Talking,Infrared Night Vision,Pan Tilt,P2P Wps Ir-Cut Nanny ip Camera Motion Detection



  • It comes with two way talking
  • It is wireless and easily connects to your Wi-Fi
  • You can access the camera remotely via smartphone
  • The camera can pan 355 degrees and tilt 90 degrees
  • It comes with high quality optics
  • It has high contrast infrared night vision
  • It has a motion detection function
  • It has preset functions and a time trigger
  • It has its own free mobile app
  • It can record to an SD memory card locally
  • Weight: 1 pound ( 450g)
  • Dimensions : 6.2 x 5.5 x 4 inches (15.7 x 13.97 x 10.16 cm)


  • The camera makes a recording and sends it to your phone when the motion detector is activated
  • The app is secure and password protected
  • You can access the camera and adjust the view from anywhere your cellphone can connect
  • You can record to an SD card
  • It is reasonably priced
  • The camera offers good image quality
  • It is responsive
  • It has a good mounting bracket


  • It has only one camera and does not allow for split screen views
  • It can be a little tricky to set up
  • It does not offer cloud recording
  • You need an Ethernet cable to set it up effectively
  • The camera password does not work very securely and tends to reset to default
  • It is easy to hack this camera
  • There can be some network errors with connecting to your Wi-Fi
  • It does not support hidden networks


This little baby monitor from FREDI has more to it than meets the eye. Even though it looks like a little puppy it does have some powerful features behind those cute camera eyes.

It makes a recording and sends it to your phone when the motion detector is activated.  It comes with an app that you can use to adjust the camera and view the room from the palm of your smartphone holding hand.

The app is secure and can be password protected for a little extra security. If you see anything you would like to keep you can record to an onboard SD memory card.

Unfortunately it does not offer recording to cloud storage. It comes with a nice sturdy mounting bracket to keep it in place, and a camera with great image quality. It has two way communication and sound that other monitors (especially in this price range) do not offer.

If you want to shout at this camera for being a bad dog, there are unfortunately, a few reasons.  It does only have one camera and does not allow for split screen views.

It also is a bit tricky to set up and you will need an ethernet cable to really get it to work well.  The camera password is not its best feature, it tends to reset to default and can be a hassle to changeto a more secure one.

It is therefore easy to hack this camera which defeats the purpose of having a secure view, especially when your children are involved.


Compared to other baby monitors this FREDI camera performs very well. It is very reasonably priced, it is responsive and you can easily access it through a variety of devices such as your smartphone.

Many other baby monitors require that you use a specific receiver. The set up of this monitor is a little more tricky than other basic baby monitors but it offers the option to record to a memory card.

For its price, size and quality it really compares very well and actually outperforms more expensive monitors on many levels. However the security of the online connection is not great and can easily be hacked and that really is its big weakness. It can also be a bit sluggish with connecting to the Wi-Fi network. 


This little guy is versatile and gives you a range of options whether you want to keep an eye on your little one or just want additional security for your home. You can even have this puppy keep an eye on your dogs.

The FREDI Baby monitor is inexpensive, responsive and has quite a few features to keep you happy. It will require a little more savvy to set up, but after that it is really easy to use.

We can really recommend that you adopt this little watchdog if you want an extra pair of eyes on your little one, but be sure that you sharpen your IT skills a little and make sure that it will be secure when you use it.

GHB Baby monitor camera video digital security 2.4 GHZ Two way real time Audio Talk Review

If you need to do a ton of housework while you need to take care of a newborn at the same time, you might feel that you need to clone yourself to get everything done. Luckily technology has come such a long way, that you don’t need to think about how you might need an extra pair of arms.

You can rely on a portable baby monitor so you can go about your daily tasks, while your little one sleeps and you can still keep an eye on her.

In this review we will take a look at the GHB Baby Monitor. It features two way audio talk so you can talk to your baby, but only when you choose to. It is wireless and portable and works with video.

It also has night vision, so you can keep an eye on your child even when they are asleep in a dark room. It has a temperature sensor and is battery powered.

It works well over large ranges such as 160 feet indoors, and even further outdoors, when there is nothing in the way. It comes with two power adapters and a user manual.

But we will also tell you more about what works well with this monitor, and where it does not do so well. We give our verdict so you can have a clear idea before you decide to buy this for your baby’s security.

  • The audio is not on the same standard of quality as the video


The positives of the GHB Baby monitor include that it really is a multifunctional little set up. You can use it in the normal sense of a baby monitor, but you can also employ it to do some security duty for you.

If you have an elderly frail parent that you care for, this can also help you to be sure that they are doing well

But its good points don’t stop there. It is also a compact unit, neither the camera, nor the receiver take up a more than a tiny amount of space. It is sleek and well made.

The sound and video are clear and you will be able to see what is going on even if baby’s room is dark. The night vision function works well.

This monitor has very little noise or additional static, and the music feature where you can play a lullaby for your baby works really well. You can even fit the receiver in your pocket and carry it with you while you go about your day.

The GHB has only a few negatives but in the spirit of fairness we won’t keep it from you. The plugs or cords connect to the side of the camera unit and can be a little inconvenient to mount.

It can also take several seconds for the video to appear on the screen when you turn the receiver on. The video can be fuzzy at times.

The LCD screen also emits light and can’t be turned off while you are sleeping. The video quality is better than the audio quality that can be a bit annoying.

The monitor also has a startup tune like a cellphone that can also work on your nerves a bit. The lullaby music feature doesn’t have the best volume control. That covers the good and bad points lets go to our verdict.  

Our verdict

In this review we took a closer look at the to see if it really measures up. All things considered this GHB Baby monitor really is an excellent choice. It has far more positives on its side than negatives.

It is well made and versatile and has good quality audio and video. If you want peace of mind while you go about your day and need to know that your baby is doing well, this is a great product.

It can also look after the other important things in your life by doing duty as a security camera. The portability of the receiver is a convenient feature and the night vision will help you see if your little one is sleeping without having to go and check and accidently wake her.

We can recommend this baby monitor and hopefully this review has helped you make your mind up as well.

  • It comes with one free bottle of gel


  • It can take time to differentiate between your own heartbeat and that of the baby
  • You will need to buy additional gel
  • There can be some static and noise
  • It feels a bit cheaply made


The LANSOR pocket baby heartrate monitor has a great set of positive features. It allows you to listen to your unborn baby’s heartbeat from around 14 weeks into your pregnancy.

It is an easy to use monitor and you can even look at a range of videos online to help you use it more effectively. It will provide you with peace of mind, especially because the heart rate display is accurate and clearly visible on the LCD screen.

It is a compact unit and true to its name you can easily carry it in your pocket. You also get a bottle of gel included with your purchase.

On the negative side the monitor can have quite a bit of static and noise. This means it can be difficult to clearly differentiate between the baby’s heartrate and your own.

This can be quite frustrating and may cause you some worry. If you have trouble hearing a heartbeat it might just be the receiver that is not doing its best, or your baby being a bit shy. If you are worried check the batteries, and then consult your doctor.

Another annoyance is that you will also need to budget for additional gel, because the gel you get with your purchase does not last very long. The monitor also feels a bit cheaply made and does not look very hardwearing. But let’s see how it compares to other models as well.


The LANSOR compares very well to other home baby heart rate monitors. It is reasonably priced and has a clear LCD screen that gives a readout of the heartrate.

Other monitors don’t have screens that display the heartrate. It is also ahead of some of its competitors because it has a speaker with volume control and a socket for earbuds.

Other models often only have speakers or a place and port for headphones. It is a bit noisy compared to some other options and it is a bit heavier, but in terms of price and ease of use it really competes in the top range. It is easier to use than other types that do not have separate probes.

Our verdict

This baby heart rate monitor by LANSOR is a great way to reassure a nervous mom or first time parents. It has a good set of features and the clear heart rate display is a main positive feature.

It is reasonably priced and will give you peace of mind when you listen to your baby’s heartbeat in-between visits to your doctor. It is very reasonably priced for what it offers and we can recommend this monitor to nervous first time parents, or anyone who want to listen to their baby’s heartbeat during pregnancy.

The added benefit of the LCD screen with an indication of the beats per minute of your baby’s heartrate really counts in this monitors favor. If you want peace of mind, but also a more accurate sense of baby’s heart rate this is an excellent choice.

Hopefully this review has given you some clarity about the and given you the information you need so you can decide if this will work for you as you embark on your journey as a new mommy.

This Wusic baby heartbeat monitor is a great way to keep the worries of first time parents away. It has quite a few positive aspects going for it. It will help put your mind at ease to listen to your baby’s heartbeat every week or so.

It is best to use this at around sixteen weeks into the pregnancy when the heartbeat is strong and you can pick it up most clearly, but it has a helpful instruction manual to help you position it correctly at each stage of your pregnancy. The downloadable lullaby album is a nice addition. You can even personalize it with your baby’s own name.

You can put your mind at ease, or give this as a present to a newly pregnant couple. You can also really bond with baby and your partner by listening to the heartbeat together with the comfortable earbuds.

Just keep in mind that it is not a medical device and if you don’t pick up a heartbeat it does not necessarily mean you should start to obsess about it.

On the negative side you should keep in mind that you should not use for more than 10 minutes at a time. It also does not have a display for the heartbeat and it doesn’t give you the beats per minute, so you will need to rely on your own counting skills to keep track of the heart rate.

It can be a little difficult to pick up the baby’s heartbeat clearly and not pick up only your own.  It does not have speakers so you will need to use the earbuds at all times.

Even though it is very lightweight, it can be a little difficult to hold, so you might need to ask someone to help you.  It is reasonably priced, but you will need to buy additional gel for it to work properly.

Our verdict

In this quick review we took a closer look at the Wusic baby heartbeat monitor. It is a great product for first time parents who want to have the added peace of mind to listen to their baby’s heartbeat.

It is compact and lightweight and reasonably priced for the benefits it will give you. It will make a great gift and will also be a way of including your partner in the experience because you can listen together.

Like we said earlier, just remember that this is not a replacement for a doctor’s visit, and if you don’t hear a heartbeat it could just be the monitor is not working well.

Always consult your physician first.  We can really recommend this product if you want to have a close connection to your little one from early on.

If you need peace of mind you will regret buying this little monitor and listen to your baby grow stronger each week.
