Vizio Digital Video Baby Monitor Review (bbluv)

Vizio Digital Video Baby Monitor
What It Is

The bbluv Vizio Digital Video Baby Monitor is a durable, all-inclusive baby monitor.

The bbluv Vizio's CrystalVu technology features a little more than 3.3-inch LCD screen that provides a clear visual on your little one, day or night. The monitor automatically switches to night vision when the room reaches a certain level of darkness. There is also motion and sound sensors as well as eight built-in lullabies and two-way audio communications to help lull your little one back to sleep from afar.

To use the talk feature, simply hold down on the microphone button and speak. The camera has a range of up to 1000 feet or 300 meters, which with the 2.4 Gigahertz digital camera is pretty standard and works fine in most homes.

The units also utilize FHSS wireless technology, which stands for frequency hopping spread spectrum and essentially hops to secure the best frequency for connection.

The monitor also features four built-in alerts that monitor temperature changes, low battery, when you may be out of range of the monitor, and feeding alerts you can set for every 30 minutes to four hours.

To access all the additional features and change settings, such as Celsius to Fahrenheit or adjust temperature alerts, there's an additional menu button. Use the top toggle buttons to scroll through the settings and tap the menu button to make selections.

Why Is It Useful?

At the end of the day, there are a few things you want out of a baby monitor, but first and most importantly, you want to be able to clearly see and hear your baby whether it's the middle of the afternoon or 2 a.m. The CrystalVu technology provides just that day or night, and we found the camera's range worked just as stated. Additionally, this baby monitor utilize FHSS (frequency hopping spread spectrum) wireless technology, which essentially hops to secure the best frequency for connection, cuts down on interference, and can be viewed as a slightly securer monitor for watching over baby than those that do not.

Who It’s For

The bbluv Vizio Digital Video Baby Monitor is made for use with baby from ages birth and up. Because of the motion detection features it can also be useful to parents with adventurous toddlers.

What To Be Aware Of

Parents, be aware, the lullabies will also play on the parent unit.

We did find that sometimes when scrolling through the menu features, we'd accidentally hit the left right keys when trying to move up and down at times, but it could just be our fingers.

You can connect the main hub, which also features a handy kick stand, with up two four units easily. You can chose to leave the units connected to the included cables to ensure optimal battery life or simply use to recharge. We connected the unit when we first received the product in our office without any issues. When we brought it home for testing, we did have a bit more difficulty getting the units to connect at first.

The baby monitor has a battery life of up to 18 hours.
