check-price-on-amazonMonitor multiple children or rooms with the multi view digital color video monitor set. The large 3.5″ high resolution color LCD handheld unit features innovative split-screen technology, allowing parents to see two rooms side by side. With additional cameras (sold separately), the split-screen technology can be extended to four viewing windows with the option to run the audio-video auto-scan feature. Sound lights make it easy to “see” the noise coming from the nursery and the two included digital zoom cameras feature automatic black and white night vision, so you can clearly see baby in a darkened room. The rechargeable battery, built-in belt clip, and kick stand paired with the long 600-foot range makes the multi view the best portable option for parents looking to monitor multiple rooms.

Please click on a question to see its answers.

Q:does this item plug into the wall or does it only run on battery?

A:

It does both

Q:It says multi, but does it actually works multi at same time? will I hear sound made from any room or only one chosen?

A:

Bought the one with 2 cameras — you can see both rooms in split screen and hear when anyone talks. We never had the situation of both rooms occupied though. However I thought I would be able to communicate with someone in the room and speak back and it does not do that, you can only listen. Short battery life — to last overnight it needs to be plugged into an outlet. picture quality good even in the dark.

Q:oes this come with two cameras, or are all cameras extra?

A:

It comes with the 2 cameras and monitor. Works great

Q:my audio cuts out is that normal only using one camera right now

A:

I noticed that the audio is only activated if there is sound to pick up. I can hear it kick on to track noise and off after sounds has stopped for a bit. I haven’t experienced it cutting out while sounds is going on. Hope this helps :)

Q:I bought this monitor set and can’t enable the scan mode. How do I do it? Thank you.

A:

First make sure both cameras are connected. Then make it so that you can only see one camera full screen. Next push the check mark twice. (Pushing the check make once allows you to choose with the arrows whether to add, subtract, or scan cameras. It’s automatically on the scan option with the refresh like arrows and hitting the check mark again selects scan.)

Q:Does it come with anything to mount the cameras to the wall?

A:

Yes it comes with a dry wall screw anchor and a screw to mount the camera to the wall. It also has cord holders to use to keep the cord neat when running to power outlet. I actually used a couple of Velcro 3M command strips instead to mount the camera to the wall and that works great and doesn’t require a hole in the wall.

Q:Is there a 2 way communication feature? Can the parents talk back to the baby unit using the parents monitor?

A:

No. It’s the only feature I wish it has.

Q:Can i hear both different rooms too, or do i see both rooms but only hear one room unless I toggle to the other?

A:

Only one room at a time.

Q:Can you hear audio in split screen mode? I am having twins and am going to have both cameras in one room.

A:

You can only hear on one camera in split screen mode. If you are having both in the same room, you should be able to hear what is going on in the room. I use them in separate rooms and can only hear on one room. But you can switch which camera you want to listen to.

Q:How do I leave video always on?

A:

Hello Frederico

Q:Does this model have temperature?

A:

Yes

Q:can you move camera from monitor

A:

No you can do a digital zoom but no movement.

Q:can you move camera from monitor

A:

No

Q:I see that there are issues with the sound being loud on the lowest setting, can the monitor be muted?

A:

Yes just turn the volume knob right down to where there is no light showing

Q:just got this monitor, the signal is bad, 30 ft away no signal came on then came back, at 100ft no signal at all, does anyone have this problem?

A:

Yes! We have the same problem. I had a different Summer monitor and NEVER had a problem with range or anything else. After our second child, we wanted a multi-camera system. I love that it scans the rooms but the range is horrible. Sometimes I have to move the monitor several times to pick up a room (that it picked up just fine the night before). Ours doesn’t work over 30 ft. I also don’t like that there isn’t a dial for the volume. Overall, I have been disappointed with this model.

Q:Is there a way to keep visual off at night and only have sound while in cycle mode? TIA for your response

A:

Yes. You just put it in scan while video is on and them turn off video

Q:can the monitor be mounted to the wall

A:

Yes, but I had problems with this one. Exchanged for dual view–much better for not too much more.

Q:I seem to be reading conflicting information. Does this monitor allow you to hear both rooms that are being monitored at the same time without having to toggle between the two?

A:

It scans back and forth every 8 seconds between the rooms. Or you can have it set to one room and manually flip over to the other.

Q:can you talk to your baby from the monitor?

A:

No.

Q:Is this monitor dual voltage (110 – 220)?

A:

No, it is 110

Q:The price changed to 20$ more since yesterday..does this company always raise the prices from day to day?

A:

Hi, we are simply responding to the changing marketplace on Amazon. We always try to be the cheapest on Amazon.

Q:If I use the auto scan feature, will it scan back and forth with AUDIO every 20-30 seconds? Need to be able to hear both rooms at night.

A:

Yes. That worked fine. But seriously, pick a different monitor. I like my Motorola way better!

Q:Can you plug monitor into a TV?

A:

There did not appear to be anyway to do that, but even if you could, the picture quality was so poor, it would likely just be a big blur.

Q:It says there is a noise sensitivity feature. I don’t want to hear the white noise machines in my kids rooms. Will it pick up white noise?

A:

Yes. But you can turn the volume off which is what we do. We can hear him from his room.

Q:Can I run both cameras in the same room at the same time to watch two children at the same time?

A:

Yes! That’s one thing that I love – you can have up to 4 cameras going all at once; there is a split screen function where you can see all cameras at once, or you can set it to scan each camera in 8 second intervals.

Q:Can I purchase a 2nd monitor? Where and how much?

A:

I have the same question. I need 2 additional monitors. How can I obtain them

Q:does it come with two cameras?

A:

Yes!

Q:How can I get sound from both cameras at the same time? I seem to only be able to get sound from the selected camera. I need it from both at once.

A:

You can’t get sound from both cameras at once but if you put it on scan it will flip back and forth between cameras about every 20 seconds.

Q:How bright is the night vision? Our current monitor’s night vision is so bright it bothers the baby.

A:

Not enough to bother my children who are 2 years old and 4 months old.

Q:Has anyone found another camera you like better than this that also has a split screen? I’d like one like this,but want to be able to hear 2 rooms.

A:

Yes, the Summer Infant one in this link does split screen where you can hear both rooms at the same time. You can also zoom and move the camera from the handheld screen.

Q:How do I set the “auto scan” feature so that the Audio goes back and forth between the 2 rooms at night?

A:

When you are viewing one camera (one room) select the check button (second from the top) and then arrow all the way down to the two cameras with the round arrows between. Once that is orange or selected, push the check button again and then the screen will alternate cameras. You have to wait, I am not sure what the view time is for each room.
