Q:Does this monitor have pan and tilt capability?

A:

It does not. It can be adjusted manually, but no control from the handheld device.

Q:Hello, How many inches is the screen?

A:

I measured about 2.5 inches diagonally.

Q:I live on the 3rd Floor and wondering if this will work when I am in the basement? There will be 2 Floors between the basement and My Apt.

A:

No

Q:can both be plugged in?

A:

Yes. And both run on batteries. But the camera picture quality decreases quickly on battery power.

Q:Is the temperature feature accurate? Is the night vision infrared?

A:

I’d say the temperature is fairly accurate within a few degrees but my son’s hangs on an exterior facing wall and it a few degrees warmer/cooler than my daughter’s which hangs on an interior wall.

Q:Is it possible to leave the video screen on without any movement or sound from a baby?

A:

No, it is not. I already knew it before to buy. I thought it would be a problem, but the microfone is very well adjusted, the video always turns on when necessary.

Q:I accidentally zoomed in and can’t UNzoom. Not sure what button(s) I pushed! If anyone could let me know how to UN-zoom, that would be great. Thanks!

A:

Press and Hold the left lower button under the power button. That should unzoom.

Q:Can you keep the sound on (hear the baby) but turn off the two-way function?

A:

in order for baby to hear you, you have to hold a button down. The two way function is not on all the time.

Q:Does the camera come with a rechargeable battery in case the power goes out or we go camping?

A:

You will need to plug the camera in. The battery stays charged off the charger for about 4 hours if that.

Q:Where is the menu button? My monitor does not have the same buttons as pictured.

A:

On mine the menu button is under the power/screen on button, which is on the left side. When you hit the menu button, it cycles through each setting (brightness, temperature alert, night vision, and vox or volume in which the monitor will turn on), which are adjusted with the up and down buttons on the right side.

A:

Yes. Everything you need is in the box… Great monitor

Q:I want to be able to see what my son is doing in a majority of his room. Will this work for that or is this just meant for a close-up view?

A:

We have it propped up in a corner so we see about half the room which is nice- there is the option of buying additional cameras so you could have 1 facing 1 way and another facing a different way and see all of the room but for now 1 camera is working nicely for us.

Q:I just got this product and i keep loosing colors in the monitor it stays in color for a bit and it turns to black and white i dont know why

A:

It’s probably the lighting. When it goes to night vision, it’s black and white. Even if it’s not totally dark, but mostly dark, night vision kicks in.

Q:Can the camera be mounted to the wall? I currently have a camera mounted high on the wall. Need to replace is because it is broken

A:

Yes it can be mounted im a wall. I don’t recomend mounting it too far away or you will loose resolutiom.

Q:When using more than one camera, does the automatic alert work on all cameras or just the camera/channel being viewed at the time?

Hi Aaron, this would alert you to the camera on screen.

A:

Hi M. Ellis, yes!.

Q:Can you operate 2 camera/monitor systems in the same house without them interfering with each other?

A:

Hi Pat, in most cases yes you would be able to use two systems in the same home. We would recommend trying to distance the units a few feet apart to avoid interference with one another.

Q:can i use it with another Levana camera?

A:

I’m not sure if you can interchange other Levana model cameras with a specific monitor. If you go to mylevana.com and click the ‘Customer Care’ tab, you can view FAQ’s or Downloads to see your model’s user guide. The answer should be there.

Q:I would like to use this product to monitor my horses in the trailer while on the road. Are both the send and receiving piece rechargeable?

A:

No, just the receiver. The transmitter works off a standard AC->DC power adapter. If you can find a batter pack which supplies the correct voltage I see no reason this wouldn’t work for you. Another option would be if you have power in your horse trailer, you could tap into that and use a power converter. If you go the first route, using a batter, you’ll need to test a little bit and see how much battery you need to get the battery life you want.

Q:what does the x2 mean at the top of the screen? also does the orange power light in the front mean it is charged? thanks

A:

The orange light at the top of the camera is the nightlight. If you are referring to the monitor, the lights at the top indicate level of sound coming through. The x2 indicates the zoom. According to their user manual you can hold down the magnifying glass/three horizontal button and arrows will appear to allow you to adjust, then hold the button down again for the arrows to disappear. If you visit mylevana.com and click the customer care tab, click downloads to find your manual. It is helpful and can answer any other questions you may have.

Q:Can you easily mount it on the wall?

A:

Yes, it is designed to do that.

Q:Could the product used in China? Do I need to get a converter ?

A:

Both ends of the monitor plug in with a 2 prong American style plug. I imagine you would need two converters to use this product in China.

Q:Is camera battery support too?

A:

No, the camera must be plugged in.

Q:What is the voltage. Is it 110 – 240. I live in Germany and am wondering if it will work here with an adapter.

A:

Although I personally have not deployed it abroad I researched it and got clear responses that it works like plug and play (IN both voltages recognizing the particular current The responder wad also from Europe…

Q:Are you able to use 2 receivers with one camera? It is ideal for us both to be able to watch and listen from different areas of our home or outside.

A:

You can not use two parent modules with one camera. It is designed that way for privacy.

Q:How big is the screen?

A:

About 3 inch diagonal..pretty good for monitoring the baby

Q:What Hertz or Ghtz frequency does this work on?

A:

2.4 GHZ

Q:What to do if battery doesn’t recharge

A:

Once the battery goes you’re basically out of luck. I would disconnect and drain the battery completely and then try to recharge it. We always keep our unit plugged in.

Q:Does this camera have night vision? What’s the quality of the picture?

A:

This camera has night vision and the quality of the picture is very good.

Q:Does it have a battery indicator?

A:

It doesn’t have a battery bar indicator or it doesn’t show the percentage of the battery life but when battery is low, the light on the camera turns yellow to indicate it needs to be replace soon or its low. The monitor has a rechargeable battery and I keep it on the dock most of the time. The camera does not have a rechargeable battery but you can keep it plug in.

Q:Does this monitor interfere with the wifi in your home? We have another monitor that, when on, will make wifi useless on our phones.

A:

We haven’t had any issues like that. However, we use the 5GHz option on our wi-fi. And their website states “Optimum range is 150 feet when signal is passing through walls or floors. Microwave ovens (when in use) may cause signal disruption at close range. Buildings with metal frames may also cause signal disruption. Maximum transmission range is 500ft.”. My experience is that microwave ovens are only interfered with 2.4GHz radios. If your wi-fi is on 2.4GHz you may have issues.

Q:Does it say Input: 110V-240V ?

A:

I’m not home. But its a standard 2 prong type plug I’m assuming 110 v because a 220 would require special outlet :)

Q:is there a warranty?

A:

Yes. You will get an email where they offer you the warranty

Q:What is the range?

A:

It depends on how many walls it has to go through, we live in an appartment building and it is fine when we go up to visit our neighbors or if I need them to keep an eye while I run outside. I would say about 50 feet and it starts beeping that it has low signal, that is through 5 walls and an outter wall when I need to bring the dog out and the fewer walls the more range.

Q:How does it work if you are using 2 cameras in 2 different rooms? Does it show both at the same time? Can you hear both rooms at the same time?

A:

No, it wouldn’t be at the same time in that you see a split screen. After setting up a second camera, you can switch between cameras on the receiving unit. Kind of like changing channels.

Q:Will this product interfere with wireless router? I just am returning another 2.4 ghz one and it completely blocked my wifi.

A:

We’ve had no issue with our wifi being blocked by this monitor. However, we had to buy a new monitor (Samsung) for our son’s room as it is a bit further away from our bedroom. The reach on this levana is not great, and the loss of signal beeping is impossible to sleep through.

Q:Is the Camera placed beside the child wireless and has rechargeable batteries? or does it has to be plugged to the power all the time?

A:

The camera must be plugged in all the time and has a cord running down that must be secured out of reach of the child. The handset is rechargeable to allow you to move around the house and has a limited range so I can walk around my 1200 sq ft house but not into my backyard.

Q:Would we be able to use this camera to view two cribs at one time, being that we are having twins?

A:

Unfortunately no. I used to secure this camera on the rail of the crib and it worked absolutely great but since my LO is now able to pull herself up she would play with the camera. So, we moved it up on the wall and it is about 2 feet from the sealing in order for me to see the entire crib…and quality of the video got a bit rougher. However, you might consider purchasing an additional camera because this monitor has capability of viewing up to 4 cameras. Hope this helps…
Congrats on twins!

Q:Both the camera and the monitor can be operated on battery?

A:

yes…..the monitor is in a cradle and recharges while it placed in there. Great little investment. Bought one for all three of my children for their newborns…they all use them a lot and are very happy with them.

Q:Can you add another parent monitor to this?

A:

Hello Elle

Thank you for your inquiry. These cameras will only allow a single monitor to pair to it at any time. It would not be possible to have one camera connected to two different monitors at the same time.

Q:I purchased this product before and now I will have another baby that will also need to be monitored at the same time. If I buy an extra camera and both cameras are in different rooms will I get to see both babies at the same time?

A:

I really don’t know. But I thought that you need the monitor and the camera in order to monitor you baby. Also the monitor has a thermometer so you can know if the baby’s room is too hot or too cold.

Q:I bought this item and am wondering if you can purchase an additional monitor. I looked but can’t seem to find one (only an additional camera).

A:

The user manual states that you can add extra cameras and manually pair each camera. You can contact Levana at 1-866-946-7828 or visit their web site, www.mylevana.com to find where to pick up another camera.

Q:Can you turn down the music when you play it? It is loud in my daughters room.

A:

yes. the volume controls on the side of the monitor turn down the sound for me.

Q:Does this item supports 220-240v power too?

A:

I believe so. Monitor is 110v so higher voltage should be no problem.

Q:Can you turn the screen off and leave audio on without using the “peep” mode?

A:

Yes. Just turn the peep mode off. Press the menu button until it shows the “VOX” option. Turn it down until it says off. Then press the power button once. Do not hold it down though. It will then turn the screen off but you can still hear any noise.

Q:Can this monitor be used overseas where we have a voltage of 220 – 240 V?

A:

Yes you can
Currently I am overseas where the power is 220 V and I just plugged the camera and it is working normally

Q:How does it signal noise when you are using two cameras to monitor kids in two different rooms?

A:

Hi Melissa, you can set your monitor to cycle so it switches between the cameras every 8 seconds to keep an eye on all of your children.

Q:If i use two monitors at the same time (as in two separate units, one monitor and base for each child) will there be interference from each other?

A:

hi Sophie, these units should work in the same area without issue. There may be slight interference if you set the monitors side by side

Q:Using two

A:

Yes you can use two systems in the same area

Q:We have a home office and depend on our wireless network. Will this baby monitor interfere with our wireless system?

A:

I haven’t had any issues with the monitor interfering with anything else in our house. It is not tied into the internet system in any way.

Q:Does this model have invisible infrared led lights? The cheaper model does but this one doesn’t mention that. Thank y ou.

A:

Yes, it does. I am amazed at the good quality of the night view.

Q:Can you use the monitor (receiver) while it is being recharged?

A:

Yes, but, in energy save mode, one charge lasts several days.
