2.4GHz FHSS Wireless Technology

The MBP25-2’s 2.4GHz FHSS technology offers a more reliable wireless connection compared to older wireless technologies. Upgraded wireless technology means much better range and less chance of missing something important happening in the home due to a weak or dropped signal.

Convenient Two-Way communication

Two-way communication allows you to speak or sing to your baby remotely, or to communicate with a partner in the room.

Color LCD Screen with Infrared Night Vision

On the MBP25-2, a full-color 2.4″ LCD display with LED sound level indicator shows real-time video and the level of sound activity in your baby’s room so you can keep informed of what’s going on visually as well as audibly. Infrared night vision means you can stay in touch with what’s going in your baby’s room without any lights to disturb little sleepers.

“Out-of-Range” and “Low Battery” Alerts

Stay connected to the action up to 520 feet away. An alarm sounds on the MBP25-2 when you’re getting out of range of the transmitting unit, so you’ll never have to wonder if you’re close enough to hear what’s going on. A low battery alert sounds when it’s time to recharge the battery.

Q:How is the night vision clarity? One reviewer said it doesn’t work and it made me hesitate on the purchase. Thanks in advance!

A:

The farther away the grainier it gets. We have 1 across from my toddlers bed, about 4ft away, the other by my 6mo crib, about 1ft away. The crib cam is better bc it’s closer to him but frankly my 3yo doesn’t need as much supervision. We had a Summer cam previously. Clarity is better.

Q:Does it come with wall mounting hardware? Or can I mount this to the wall/ceiling?

A:

It does not come with hardware but the camera units have holes for mounting…the lollipop looking cut out so you can mount it on a screwhead.

Q:Can you do split screen with this monitor?

A:

No it does not split screen. It does have the option to choose “Scan” where it switches between the 2 cameras every 10 seconds, but that is as close as it gets.

Q:Does the camera have a night light function? my current monitor had this feature but the monitor has died so looking for a new unit.

A:

No

Q:Are the cameras able to tilt in order to get a better angle if needed?

A:

Yes. Up and down and left and right.

Q:How is the range on these cameras? We have a 2,300 square foot home, has anyone had an issue with losing connection?

A:

I don’t think that will be a problem for you at all. We have a smaller house but live on several acres and I have been probably 20-30 yards away and still had reception. Just watch the battery. Keep it plugged in unless you need to walk off

Q:is this dual voltage like other Motorola models?

A:

what does dual voltage mean?

Q:We are looking for a baby video monitor that is sound activated that only the camera turns on with sound/motion? Does this camera do that?

A:

Don’t think so.
Ps- we absolutely hate this camera.

Q:Can you move the cameras horizontally and vertically from the parent unit?

A:

No. But you can zoom in and move it up down left right from the zoom in screen

Q:Are the batteries rechargeable?

A:

Yes, they’re your usual Li ion type batteries.

Q:What is the indoor range of the monitor? We often spend evenings in the basement, at the opposite end of the house (and floor down) from the nursery.

A:

We loose signal at about 25 or 30 feet it seems. Through two interior walls.

Q:Is there a time of day display anywhere on the parent monitor?

A:

No

Q:Has anyone tried to use both cameras in the same room (i.e., one on each twin infant)? Any interference or problems from the cameras being too close?

A:

We use two in the same room and have not had issues. The closest we’ve had them to one another is about 10 feet. I have noticed, at times, what sounds like interference. It’s a light noise and comes and goes. I believe that may have something to do with other wireless electronics in our house.

Q:How many button presses does it take to switch between one camera and the other?

A:

One push to go to camera 1, another push to camera 2, and another push to the setting that automatically switches between the 2. Push again and it’s back to camera 1 and so on.

Q:When both cameras are in use to watch two kids in separate rooms, if either child starts to cry will the appropriate monitor pick it up?

A:

It will not automatically pick up noise from either room, but there is a setting that alternates the camera in each room every ten seconds. This allows you to check on two children consistently. The night vision feature works perfectly, as I can even see when my children’s eyes are open or closed. My wife and I stand by this purchase 100%.

Q:Can you add a third camera?

A:

I don’t believe so……but I can’t confirm

Q:Has anyone found where to buy an extra monitor power cord? Would love to have another one for our townhouse.

A:

I found one on eBay

Q:Can you add an additional monitor (viewing device, not camera)?

A:

It comes with two cameras and cannot have additional cameras…I am unsure if you can add additional monitors for viewing.

Q:Does this baby monitor give you the temperature in the baby’s room?

A:

No

Q:Does this have a temperature reading on the screen?

A:

No it does not. Just shows signal strength, battery power, which camera is being displayed, and whether it is in night mode. Picture is clear and the sound is good.

Q:is there option to remotely rotate the camera or is this only done manually?

A:

the answer is mostly no. You can zoom in on the picture and move around that view but on normal view mode you can’t rotate remotely.

Q:Does this monitor alert you when out of range? When the battery is going to die? I see that it does both from the descripbut want some confirmation

A:

Yes it does both!

Q:can you zoom in / out from the parent unit?? and how do you mount it on the crib?

A:

You can zoom in once. It sits up on a shelf instead of mounting to a crib.

Q:is the connection secure? can someone else access who has a similar monitor?

A:

No

Q:Can you HEAR both rooms simultaneously? I find many only monitor one room at a time (audio wise)…THX

A:

No. You can set it to where it switches automatically between rooms every 15 seconds, but not at the same time.

Q:can you manually turn off the display so that the monitor is audio only?

A:

Yes. Therea a video on and off button on the side of the monitor

Q:Does the camera have to be plugged in, or can it run on batteries?

A:

No, it does not use batteries. It only plugs in.

Q:Are you able to turn the screen off and still have sound on this model? Thanks!!!

A:

Yes both plugged and unplugged.

Q:My husband runs a small shop down the street from us and is going to have a nursery in his office as well. Can you install 1 camera at home and 1 at the office and still use the monitor at the house or at the office depending on which location you are at?

A:

You could, but you will most likely only be able to see the camera at the location where you are at the time. The range really drops off once you start getting walls, bookcases, stoves and refrigerators in the way.

Q:Does this unit have an option to scan between the children’s rooms or do you have to manually switch it?

A:

It has 3 modes…., camera 1, camera 2…., or auto switching between the 2 cameras at 10 second intervals.

The cameras have night vision and zoom control from the tv monitor…., easy to set up and excellent quality.

Q:Can you hear audio from both cameras? ie if in 2 separate rooms at night, would it wake you to sound from either?

A:

You can hear from both but not at the same time. U have to switch back and forth.

Q:Where can I get an additional camera? All I can find are MBP26 and MBP18 and I’m not sure if these are compatible with MBP25.

A:

I found additional cameras on Ebay

Q:Can you turn the sound completely off while still being able to view the screen?

A:

Yes! I do that all the time

Q:Is the power supply unit universal 110-240v? Or only 110v?

A:

110 120 only

Q:How far can you have the parent and baby monitors away from one another. We live in a big house with rooms on opposite ends.

A:

We actually took ours on vacation. I think they can reach about 50 yards without losing the signal!! And I love this monitor. Only problem is the battery life isn’t fantastic!

Q:Is there a VOX or similar option to dim/mute until baby makes a noise? Or are screen and sound on constantly? Can screen brightness be adjusted?

A:

The screen doesn’t have to stay on constantly. The sound is very clear so it isn’t annoying to have the volume turned all the way up. For the price I LOVE it!

Q:Wifi or app possible?

A:

No. It will not do wifi or app. Works on it’s own frequency but it is a very good product. I added 2 additional cameras and they work great.

Q:are you only able to receive the video on the hand held device? can other people get access to the camera?

A:

You can only see the images through the monitor. It does not have wi fi features. It’s a great monitor. Only thing missing is the temperature icon which the mpb33 has. Otherwise great value for money.

Q:is the monitor portable or does it have to be stationary?

A:

portable

Q:What is the length of the power cord adapter(s) for the cameras?

A:

6ft
