Day #18: I Am In LOVE TNMBN Giveaway Event

It's Day 18 of the event and today's 
review & giveaway is brought to you by Savy Mommy Moments.
As parents, we wish we could spend every single moment right next to our children keeping them safe, but this just isn't realistic, so how can technology help when we can't be right there? With my son, we registered for a standard audio baby monitor, but at 2-3 months old when he learned to roll over and would get his little feet stuck in the crib slats, we knew we needed to a better solution to see if he was really stuck or just making a noise in his sleep. I immediately went out and spent the "gulp" $200 on a video baby monitor. Well, the monitor we bought was good for the time being and we still have it today, but I have to tell you that for $200, I don't feel like it is nearly the quality it should be.
Since then, I have received several inquiries from soon-to-be or new parents about what the best video monitors out there are for their children and I have been unable to give them an answer I knew the product would back up.  Now, I have one in the Lorex Technologies, LIVE Sense LW2400 Wireless Baby Monitor.

Temperature Monitoring.

The LIVE Sense includes an electronic temperature sensor so you can monitor the climate in the baby's room. A built-in alarm will even warn you if the temperature changes outside of your selected range.

Two-Way Talk.

Two-way audio between the camera and monitor means you can talk to family members, even if you are not in the same room.

Grows with Your Family.

Add up to 3 additional cameras. As your family grows, the LIVE Sense can expand right along with you. Have a camera in the baby's room, play room, living room, or even pointing at the front door.

Audio Monitor.

Conserve battery life and sleep peacefully by using it as an audio monitor. With the LCD monitor turned off, you can continue to hear your child while eliminating distractions for a peaceful sleep.

Private and Secure.

Digital signal with FHSS technology ensures a private and secure transmission between the camera and handheld monitor.

Audio Indicator Lights.

Audio indicator lights on the monitor indicate the level of noise being picked up by the camera. This extra pair of ears helps you be aware of what your child is up to when you are in a noisy room.

My review: 
Unpacking and setting up the system was really easy. 
We chose to set this up in our 3 year old's room as we recently chis bed to a crib and wanted to be able to view more of his room than just his bed. Setup was really easy, just

Two of our major complaints with our previous monitor were the quality of the image, especially at nighttime and the static background noise.  We immediately noticed that the quality of these images were crisp and much less grainy. And that night, we noticed that there was only a sound coming from the monitor if there was noise in the room, for which the sensitivity can easily be adjusted on the camera. Below are our tests with very dim room lighting and nighttime with no light.

We started playing around with some of the features and there were some really great ones we wished we had with our old monitor. Below are a few pics of these:
 
When we installed this monitor, we were having a problem convincing our son that he could get out of his bed in the morning on his own.  Even though we had told him in person, what felt like a hundred times, he still would cry for us every morning like he was trapped. This monitor has a walkie talkie feature in which you can talk to the room the camera is in remotely from the video monitor and we decided to test it out the very first morning. When he woke up, we simply told him he could get out of bed and come to our room and it worked! Now, this is his favorite feature, as at nighttime after we have done 2-3 rounds of hugs/kisses/goodnight wishes, we can say one final "Goodnight" and "I love you" to him before he goes down to sleep.  I think it has given him reassurance that if he needs us, he doesn't have to wait to hear our voices until we get upstairs.
Finally, I really like that we can add up to 4 total cameras to this monitor and these aren't just limited to the version included with it.  It is expandable with various cameras for indoor and outdoor use, which means that this can be used well beyond those first few years of your children's lives.
Overall, this monitor offers parents and very affordable, high-quality (only $149.99, which is a steal in the world of video monitors!) and easy to use solution for monitoring the safety of their children and home. I highly recommend this for any new parent or parent-to-be, as well as anyone looking to monitor the security and safety within or outside their home.
