Key Features of Levana-Jena Video Baby Monitor
2.4 inches LCD color screen with adjustable brightness. Night vision in black and white. The image quality in the day or nighttime is very good at price point.
It transmits 15 frames per second, so the video is fluid allowing you to see in details your baby. Parents are impressed with the video quality.
Night vision allows you to see objects up to 15 feet away from the camera in complete darkness so you can check on your baby at any time of night. The night vision will activate automatically when the light sensor on the front of the camera detects that the light levels are too low.
It has digital 2x zoom. You can also pan left, right, up or down the image while in zoom mode. (not the camera angle)
It comes with VOX (PEEP). When in VOX (PEEP) mode, the monitor enters standby/sleep mode after 1 minute of inactivity. When sound is detected, you are alerted and the screen changes to live view. You can use the volume arrows to increase/decrease the sensitivity to sound and filter out unnecessary sounds.
Great feature for monitoring your baby at night and have a good night sleep. Knowing that if they need you, you’ll be alerted.
One of the complaints about baby monitors is sound quality and the annoying static noise some of them make. Well, the sound quality on this one is great, with no static at all. The sound volume is adjustable as well.
It comes with Talk to Baby™ two-way communication. Parents love this feature for so many reasons. When babies are very young and you are out of the room it is hard for them to understand that you are not far away. Talk to Baby™ intercom lets you ease their worries with the sound of your voice before you even enter the room, bringing peace of mind to both parents and babies.
It’s also a handy tool for asking your partner to come and give you a hand, whether you are with the baby or not, you won’t need to yell across your home to ask for help.
To optimize the effectiveness of the Talk to Baby™ function, you need to keep the monitor at least 6-8 inches away from your mouth.
The camera is more compact than the other models and it actually has the ability to use AAA batteries to transmit in addition to the AC adapter. Nice backup to have in case of power outage.
Flexible positions. You can place it on a table or mount it on a wall.
It has 15 feet automatic night vision. Built-in night vision allows the camera to capture a clear image of your child, even in complete darkness, from up to 15 feet away. As the room darkens, the system automatically adjusts to the level of light. The camera can be placed anywhere in your child’s room while still displaying a precise image of your baby.
Unfortunately it doesn’t have invisible night vision infrared led lights. The good news is that, the infrared lights are inside a dark plastic circle around the lens. They aren’t bright in the dark and will NOT bother your baby when it sleeps.
The camera does NOT have remote pan and tilt capability like other more expensive baby monitors. However, you can manually tilt the camera up and down to adjust the viewing angle.
Some children prefer a little light in their room when they are sleeping. Or maybe you need a little bit of light to sneak in and out of the nursery without bumping into anything. Whatever you use it for, the nightlight on the camera is one more handy little feature you can easily access from the parent unit whenever you need it.
Expandable up to 4 cameras
As your family grows or your baby becomes active you may wish to view more than just the nursery. You can add up to three additional cameras to conveniently view up other areas of your home at once.
On the downside, if you do add an extra camera(s) this model doesn’t have ‘scan feature’. Meaning, it won’t automatically scan each camera every 5 or 10 seconds. In order to see and hear what’s going on in each room you’ll have to toggle manually between each camera.
The maximum wireless range in line of sight is 500 feet. Customers are using it in a basement, laundry, upstairs, downstairs, garage and on a deck and it works great. Even in a 4000 sq foot house. It has on screen signal strength indicator to alert you when you’re are out of range.
At this price point, the battery life is very good. More expensive models don’t offer 8+ hour rechargeable battery.
You can stay busy for 8 hours with the video screen ON and over 12 hours in PEEP mode without stopping to recharge. The PEEP (Power-on/off Energy Efficient Picture) mode sets your monitor screen to “sleep” when there is no sound in the nursery. The second your baby makes a peep, the monitor will activate and you will be able to see and hear exactly what is going on. Great for monitoring your baby at night, allowing you to have a good night of sleep.
The icon in the top right corner of the main screen will show you the battery power status. When battery is low, POWER LED will flash slowly & beep. Indicating that recharging the battery will be required shortly after.
Setup is very easy. You’ll up and running in no time.
You do not need Wi-Fi . Private, secure ClearVu® digital wireless signal. ClearVu® technology enables you to see and hear your child with outstanding precision and clarity from up to 500ft away. Unlike analog monitors this one provides private, secure and interference-free signal. No one but you will ever be able to see or hear your baby.
Nursery temperature monitoring is great feature. Parents love it. The camera includes a temperature monitor of your baby’s room. The temperature of the nursery can be shown on ‘onscreen’ in your choice of Fahrenheit or Celsius so you will always know that your baby is comfortable.
5 Remote-controlled lullabies. If your baby love the sound of lullabies, this model comes with 5 lullabies that can be activated and remotely changed with your monitoring unit.
With the touch of a button, you can keep the music going or change the song until you find one your baby likes. You won’t have to return to the nursery and reactivate the songs over and over until your baby is ready to fall asleep. The lullaby list is as follows: 1. Twinkle Twinkle 2. Canon in D Major 3. Go to Sleep 4. Blue Danube 5. You Raise Me Up.
