We purchased the Baby Zoom wifi model in 2016 and never really used it until about 3 months ago when our son started sleeping in his toddler bed. The “no signal” kept showing up when we tried to use it after Summer decided to pull the WiFi option and I can no longer use my cell phone or iPad as a secondary monitor. The more I tried to use it the worse it worked. I reached out to “customer service” and they just told me the WiFi being pulled has nothing to do with why my unit isn’t working then they offered a coupon to purchase another. No thank you. Please save your money and buy a better, well established brand who can actually assist if you have issues.
The picture was clear, the color was sharp, during the day and night. The design was modern and fit in very well. You can adjust the camera up or down and turn it left or right. Ht, the sound volume was excellent. The distance was great within the distance I needed. However, the unit came in two parts, neither unit was wireless, you had to have a electrical outlet close by. Unit was also very light, so it had to be careful how you place it as it moved very easy. If it was outside, the wind would move it. But, the cost was reasonable. I used it to watch over my mother-in-law who lived next door. I could set it up in any room. It was also small and easy to hide it or place it that it would not interfere.
It's a video monitor that is closed circuit with no WiFi. I feel it is safe for my family while allowing me to know my children are safe as well. I like how it scans through each camera periodically so I can hear all my children within a few seconds. But I wish I could see all 3 at the same time while being able to hear all 3 at the same time. I like being able to have them all on the same screen at once but don't like that I can't hear them all at once too. It was one of the least expensive brands, which was helpful. Plus I knew the Summer Infant was a superior brand, and it made me happy to know it was of good quality.
I love the camera and video features of the Summer Infant Baby Monitor. I love the fact that I can watch in on my baby while preparing dinner or cleaning and know that he is secure. It was just the right size, it's portable and great in color. The instructions and set up was easy and understandable. The noise control was perfect itself. The speakers eliminated the background noise so that I can my baby much clearer if needed. However, I suggest that the screen size could be upgraded in size for a larger view of the baby. Other than that, the Summer Infant Baby Monitor gave me some relief and always kept great signal. I chose it overall due to the quality and great reviews on the pr.
I like the LCD screen of the Summer Infant Baby Monitor so I can see my baby and also the good sound quality so I can hear him. It was very reliable and good quality. I like the volume control as well, and easy to use features. This baby monitor always made me feel that my baby was safe and I can check on him anytime I wanted. I like the features and everything about it. I chose the Summer Infant Baby Monitor due to its price, LCD screen, and warranty. It lasted for 4 years without any issues.

I like being able to see the baby without the baby seeing me. I like being able to do chores without having to constantly check on the sleeping baby and I also like having night vision. However, I would like to have the capability to monitor more than one child at a time. I would also like to be able to purchase additional cameras and be able to move the camera around. Nevertheless, I chose the Summer Infant Baby Monitor because it had good reviews and the price was good. I wanted a video capable monitor that would not cost a fortune. Overall, for the price, it has been very helpful and it was a very good experience.
I like the camera and TV screen being able to see and hear my babies. The Summer Infant Baby Monitor gives you peace of mind when you hear noises in the middle of the night. It has different channels as well so if you have multiple monitors you don't have to worry about feedback. However, the quality is poor and the screen sometimes isn't clear enough to see the babies. Also the screen being on disables the sound. Which makes it nearly impossible to see and hear the babies at the same time. Nevertheless, I like the Summer Infant Baby Monitor. It has held up well over the years. I have had the monitor for six years now and it still mostly works. Even being gone through 4 children.
Summer Infant has positive reviews and is affordable and it helped me choose this brand over others. Overall my experience had been good. It has great volume to wake us up to check on our baby and the brightness of the night vision is good! I like that it has night light, wall mount, and night vision. You can turn the night light on and off from hand-held monitor while the hand-held monitor is wireless. The monitor nor the handheld need to be connected to WiFi. However, I would like for it to have a capability to control camera from the hand-held monitor and better zoom. It could also have a microphone that can be used to talk through for baby to hear your voice.
We originally registered for a Summer Infant Baby Monitor because it was an affordable option. We were happy to receive it as a gift, and are happy that it has continued to be used for over four years now. I like its blue glow for easy viewing at dark. It is simple and easy to use. Its compact design makes it easy to take for travel, and it charges quickly. I also like that it has two carriers that one of the parents is always alerted of any problems. But this baby monitor does not reset itself after a power outage. The base beeps letting you know that it is off. And this is disturbing in the middle of the night when you might not be aware of a power outage.
I liked that the baby monitor had sound and video capabilities, charge the handheld unit, the video worked when the room was dark, and mount the video camera on the wall or place it on a counter or dresser. The video and sound worked through the whole house as well. The main reason I chose this brand over other brands is because it was a brand I had positive experience with before. I wanted a baby monitor that offered sound and video that worked in a dark room. I also wanted a monitor that was wireless and not very expensive. The baby monitor did everything that it advertised and everything I wanted.
