Meaning: Enduring

Your baby will grow up before you know it: rest assured knowing they are safe with the Ayden Digital Video Baby Monitor. This device has been designed with parent-friendly controls and features in mind, including 48 hour battery life in power saving PEEP mode, temperature monitoring, 15ft night vision, and 750ft ClearVu® digital signal. Babies love the Talk to BabyTM two-way intercom, invisible night vision LEDs and 3 relaxing lullabies. With Ayden, you’ll never miss a moment.

48 hour battery life in PEEP mode

When you find yourself multitasking you won’t need to stop and recharge this monitor for up to 48 hours. PEEP (Power-on/off Energy Efficient Picture) sets your monitor and your camera to “sleep” when there is no sound in the nursery saving hours of valuable battery life. The second your baby makes a “peep”, the camera and the monitor will activate so you can see and hear exactly what is going on.

See More on a 3.5″ Screen

Your little star deserves center stage; see it all on a large 3.5″ screen. You will be amazed at the quality of the image in both day and night vision. Ayden provides a video image that is the next best thing to being in the same room as your baby.

Temperature Monitoring to Ensure Comfort

Check the temperature in the nursery at any time to ensure your child is comfortable. The camera includes a temperature sensor which feeds to the parent unit. Studies indicate your baby’s room should be between 68-71° F (20- 21° C). This feature can bring you peace of mind without waking up your child.

Q:Can you move/tilt the camera from the parent unit?

A:

you can not

Q:Can you turn off the video and use the monitor with just the sound function?

A:

I can not see any way to do that.

Q:Will this reach from 2nd floor to basement area? does it make lots of cracking or static noise?

A:

From second floor to basement the signal may not reach but that would depend on where in the basement you are to where on the secons floor tje baby’s room is. Our house is about 1200-1500 square feet and the baby room is on the 1st floor, opposite side of the house from where our office in the basement is. Generally the signal is pretty good but ocassionaly we can lose signal. As for static and cracking noises, they’re very minimal if the monitor does make them.

Generally the signal is pretty good but ocassionaly we can lose signal. As for static and cracking noises, they’re very minimal if the monitor does make them. What’s nice is that th monitor has a feature you can turn on where the monitor will turn on when the baby makes noise. You can set the sensitivity too. This makes it so the monitor doesn’t need to constantly be on. It’s a very nice feature and we use it all the time.

Q:When you are using more than one camera does it auto scan between them or do you have to manually switch from one camera to the other?

Hi Molly, you can manual switch between cameras or you can auto cycle through cameras 1 to 4. Each camera view will appear for 6 seconds per camera. When scan view is selected.

Q:Does this unit stay on (screen and soind) even when not connected to power and working off battery power? Just want to confirm it doesn’t sleep

A:

Yes it does. It goes to sleep after a couple if minutes of no sound but comes back on when there is a sound in the room. You also have the option to turn off the sleep mode. The quick start up directions it comes with dont describe that. I had to go on line and download the full user guide to figure that out.

Q:I read a comment that this camera takes 4 AAA batteries…is this not true? I want a camera that doesn’t need to be plugged in…

A:

I recently purchased this item. I used the camera component (takes 4 AA batteries) without plugging it in.
It worked for the day but the batteries appeared to be burned out by the end of the day. My guess is
that it’s intended to be used as a plug-in unit but could be used, for short periods, just using the batteries.
The monitor works all day in battery mode but I have to re-charge it overnight by plugging it in. It
has a different type of battery which appears to be rechargeable.
