A:

It is pretty clear during the day time and in color. You do have to make sure that the camera is lined up high and the lens centered. Otherwise, if your baby is all over the place. You may not see them. Night time vision is fairly dark, but you can still see if they are awake or not. Their little eyes look like a deer in the headlights! Overall. I am very happy with mine.

Q:What is the resolution of the video?

A:

I don’t have the packaging any longer and couldn’t tell you the exact resolution. I can tell you that the pic in daytime is in color and very clear, the night time pic is is not in color and a little harder to see, but can always make out if baby is awake or not. This is the second set I purchased, I am very pleased with this set up. I paid more money for the first set and it was garbage, this has been a far better experience even tho it doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles. It has the important stuff and does that well. I hope I was able to help!
