Product Review and Giveaway: Motorola MBP36 Remote Wireless Video Baby Monitor

Motorola MBP36-2 Remote Wireless Video Baby Monitor

Baby monitors have come a long way in a short amount of time and I could not be more impressed with the thought and innovation that companies are putting into their products. I am specifically referring to the Motorola Digital Baby Monitor.

The short version of why I am such a fan of this monitor is quite simple. It does it all. It has video capabilities, audio capabilities, zoom capabilities, comes with a rechargeable battery, and can be used day or night. It is user friendly and in all honesty – I think it’s really just fun to play with! Right now I have one camera in my preschooler’s room and one camera in my toddler’s room. I have a lot of fun just seeing what the kids are up to in their rooms when they think no one is looking.

When I had my first child in 2009 we received an audio only baby monitor as part of our registry. When baby number 2 came around we upgraded to a single camera video monitor. And now that baby number three is coming we are upgrading once again to a double camera digital video baby monitor that has all the bells and whistles and is easy to use!

What we love about the Motorola MBP36-2 Remote Wireless Video Baby Monitor:
  • I am a HUGE fan of the fact that the Motorola MBP36 Remote Wireless Video Baby Monitor can remotely pan, zoom, and tilt. This means that I can change what the camera is looking at from wherever I am in my home. I can zoom in and out while sitting on my sofa. I do not have to be standing in the nursery playing with the camera trying to get the perfect angle… and if the kids touch the camera {which they did}, I can easily change it back to the position I want it without physically touching the camera. And it makes no noise when in motion.
  • It comes with a rechargeable battery for the parent unit. You plug it in, charge it up, unplug it and go! It comes with a NiMH rechargeable battery pack, so there is no constant need to replace the batteries and when it is charged you can use the parent handheld unit wirelessly. When used wirelessly the wireless transmissions are digitally secure and safe from unauthorized access.
  • It is really easy to use. There is a menu button that displays the volume control, the camera brightness, the five lullaby options that can be played, the zoom capabilities, the alarm options, the camera display, and the temperature display. There are five LED lights located at the top of the monitor so that displays the noise level. Displayed on the screen is the range {this camera goes up to 590 ft}, the camera being viewed, the temperature, if night vision mode is being used, and the battery charge. There is a little kickstand located on the back and as well as an antenna {although we never needed to use the antenna}.
  • Did I mention that this monitor can work as a two way communicator- meaning that with the touch of a button I can speak to my toddler who is holding the camera and tell him to put it down. This was a big hit in my household. My kids think it is pretty cool that mom can see what is going on and talk to them even when not in the room.
  • The parent unit has a 3.5” diagonal LCD screen display {roughly the same size as my iPhone4 screen} and it provides a clear color picture. I can easily see my children with this monitor; there is no squinting at the monitor to see and no second guessing what is being displayed. It is also a very light unit to carry around.
  • When in night vision mode, the light displayed on the camera unit is not incredibly bright. This means that the light is not keeping my children awake at night and I am still able to get a clear picture of my child sleeping.

As soon as baby #3 arrives one of the cameras will go into the new nursery and the other will remain in my toddler’s room as he transitions from a crib to a toddler bed. He is still little enough that I feel the need to have a monitor remain in his room. I love that the Motorola MBP36 Remote Wireless Video Baby Monitor can come with one camera or two and has the capability of supporting up to four cameras.

This is the part of my review where I suggest ways in which to improve on the product from a real mother’s perspective. But I could not find any fault with this product. I feel like Motorola really did take the time to think of everything when they made this monitor. I have heard others complain that there is no belt clip, but I never used one on any of my other baby monitors and don’t believe I would use one now. I would highly recommend it to anyone in need of a video monitor. In fact, I have already suggested it to my sister-in-law for her baby registry.
