Display: 5 out of 10
The parent unit has a simple and very easy to use design. The sound is clear, without interference; we can say that it is one of the best features of this product. However, some complain of too low a sound.
One point against this device is that it does not have any bi-directional communication, so it will only be possible to hear the sounds coming from the child’s room but we will not be able to talk to each other.
It has DECT technology which guarantees a clear signal and without any kind of interference. However, some customers complain of frequent signal loss.
A visual indicator that visually reproduces the intensity of the sound will not make you lose any detail.
Thanks to the high sensitivity microphone and a night light, you will always be sure to hear everything that goes on in the child’s room.
Battery: 6 out of 10
Both the child unit and the parent unit must be connected to the power supply, they cannot be used with batteries; This could be a drawback as they will have to be continuously connected to the wall. This, for some, may be quite inconvenient as the ability to move would be greatly reduced.
It has ECO mode, a technology that reduces energy consumption and transmission power for DECT devices.
Distance: 6 out of 10
The reception distance is 50 meters in narrow spaces and 200 in open spaces. It also has a warning signal in case of low coverage.
Extras: 4 out of 10
As previously stated, it has DECT technology for a safe signal without interference and even a night light so that the child’s room remains always partially illuminated.
The plug-n-go function is also very important, allowing the child unit to be put into operation simply by connecting it to the outlet without following an activation routine, as for other devices. This factor, however, at the same time could represent a limit since it must be used only if connected to the outlet
Conclusion: 5.3 out of 10
This is a very basic model from Motorola in the world of child monitoring. The sound quality is good, although sometimes it is quite low. DECT technology is a strong point of the device but the connection is not always the best, since it is lost with a certain frequency. The biggest flaw of this device is that it can only be used if connected to the plug, which could represent a limit.
It is a model with quite essential features that do not always work the best. We believe that the price-quality is quite good, despite some defects.
