Q:Is the charger 110v. or 220v.??

A:

110v

Q:Does this product require the use of WiFi? Or will it work in areas without access to wireless internet? Thanks.

A:

This product does not require wifi to operate…just plug it in!

Q:Will this work in a small, two-story house? Baby’s room is directly below parent’s room.

A:

It should. My parents live in a two story house and it works fine when we visit them. My kids sleep on the basement and we are one floor up and we are able to see them. Hope it helps.

Q:I have a summer infant camera 02800 model from the infant slim and secure set. The monitor broke, Can I use the camera with this model?

A:

Nope. The slim and secure cameras and handsets do not work. You’ll need to buy a new unit.

Q:Can the camera be mounted to the wall?

A:

yes it can.

Q:Will this monitor work with older (purchased 2 years ago) Summer Infant slim&secure cameras?

A:

Thank you for your question. All additional cameras are model specific. This system will not work with the Summer Infant Slim & Secure Cameras.

Q:Does this monitor run on a 2.4ghz frequency?

A:

Yes it does.

Q:Can a monitor be sold separately? I see separate cameras but I need an extra monitor.

A:

I looked for the same thing. I couldn’t find any on Amazon the only thing I could tell you is to check summer infants direct website. Years ago I was able to just buy a monitor. But the reason I had to buy this monitor on Amazon was because I couldn’t find a hand monitor by itself. But my reason was because I had an older model.

Q:How is the range?

A:

Ours right now is about 20 FT away from the babies room and it works perfect

Q:Does the video turn off when not plugged in? Is there an option to turn the video off but keep the audio on?

A:

Yes. If the monitor is plugged in, video stays on unless you turn it off. On battery video will turn off automatically but audio will remain on. You can also manually turn video off or on while either plugged in or on battery and keep audio on.

Q:What is the battery life on the camera itself? Will it stay on all night without being plugged in?

A:

the camera itself is not capable of running on battery alone as far as I can tell – it must always be plugged in (the feedback monitor can and has a great battery life). I guess we have never run into the issue of not having an outlet to plug it in to… anyway I certainly could be wrong but I don’t think it has the capability of battery-only operation.

Q:Dose it interfere with or become negatively effected by wifi cell phones or cordless phone signals?

A:

I cannot speak to interference with cell phones (3G, 4G, etc) or cordless phones, but I can speak to WiFi in general. I have found significant interference with my Verizon FiOS Wi-Fi. When I am using the internet, I see stuttering on this baby monitor. If I am streaming videos (Hulu, etc), the monitor may sometimes completely cut our for a few seconds. This is because both the baby monitor and my Wi-Fi router are running at 2.4GHz.

Q:Does this show room temperature?

A:

No

Q:Are additional monitors supported?

A:

No. I have contacted the manufacturer with the same question. You can add extra CAMERAS to your system, but you can only use a single monitor/display to view them.

Q:You can turn off the video and just have audio, but can you turn off the audio completely and just have video?

A:

Yes to both questions. You can adjust the volume with buttons on the side so that you have sound, and then use the top button to turn off video at the monitor. Similarly, you can leave the video on, but turn the audio volume down all the way.

Q:Is the handheld and / or camera battery rechargeable?

A:

The camera is plugged in and the handheld comes with a charger.

Q:Does this do pan/tilt too, or just zoom?

A:

Just zoom as far as I know. If there is a pan/tilt feature I don’t really know.

Q:Does the two-way communication work by the press of a button? I’m concerned about baby hearing me all of the time as opposed to just when I want.

A:

Yes you have to press the button to communicate. Baby won’t hear you if the button is not pressed.

Q:What is the battery life on the camera itself? Will it stay on all night without being plugged in?

A:

the camera itself is not capable of running on battery alone as far as I can tell – it must always be plugged in (the feedback monitor can and has a great battery life). I guess we have never run into the issue of not having an outlet to plug it in to… anyway I certainly could be wrong but I don’t think it has the capability of battery-only operation.
