Review & Giveaway: Motorola MBP18 Digital Wireless Video Baby Monitor

Motorola MBP18 Digital Wireless Video Baby Monitor

I love great products. When I happen upon a great product I cannot help but share my thoughts and opinions about it with everyone I know. A while ago I had the opportunity to review the Motorola MBP36-2 Remote Wireless Video Baby monitor and I loved it. I still love it and use it regularly. It is so fun being able to see what my little guys are doing when they think they are not being watched.

Recently Motorola asked me if I would like to review another video baby monitor of theirs, a more compact model. Of course I said yes! After setting up the Motorola MBP18 I did a little happy dance; as this baby monitor did not skimp on the quality. There are some seriously awesome features in this compact but highly efficient package.

I have used this monitor nonstop from the moment it entered my house. There are a lot of reasons to love this little monitor, first and foremost is the fact that the picture and sound quality is outstanding. It has video capabilities, audio capabilities, and zoom capabilities.  Aside from that – which in itself is reason enough to love it, it is also a wireless rechargeable unit. Love it!

The Motorola MBP18 Digital Wireless Video Baby Monitor is Mom Mart Approved!

What we love about the Motorola MBP18 Digital Wireless Video Baby Monitor:
My favorite feature of this unit is that the camera unit that comes with the MBP18 has an incredible turn radius. What I mean to say is that I can position this camera on a surface and then turn the camera itself up and down as well as angle it {most camera units do not allow for the user to twist the camera to face at an angle.} This feature means that I can place my camera unit on the highest point of my crib and angle it down to get the best unobstructed view of my baby as possible. AWESOME!
I love the picture quality on this unit; it is crystal clear and in vibrant color! The 1.8” color LCD screen is great! It is not too small that I have to squint to see what is going on, but it is not a big bulky monitor that is difficult to carry around either. It is a wonderful compact monitor that does the job.
When in night vision mode, the light on the camera unit is not too 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.
It is really easy to use the MBP18. The volume buttons are easily displayed right on the front as is the zoom feature. The menu button gives me the option of changing the brightness, setting a timer, switching camera units, and adding or removing additional cameras. Displayed across the top of the LCD screen are a range indicator, the camera unit being shown, and the battery life of the parent unit.
This is a digital wireless video baby monitor. You charge it, unplug it, and go! I carry it around the house with me as I do chores and as of yet have not made it out of the monitors range {2.4 gigahertz Wireless Frequency Band with a radio range of up to 500ft}.
The unit comes with AC adapters that have pictures on them of which unit they are supposed to plug into. Genius. I don’t know about you, but I hate having to read the manual to figure out which voltage goes with what unit and then try and read that teeny tiny print on the plugs… This might make me a little lazy, but these pictures make it so much easier for me especially when I am not functioning at full capacity at 3am.

This monitor is perfect for at home or on the road, as it is a pretty small but highly efficient baby monitor. I like that the camera unit does not have to be placed high up on a wall in order to get a good angle inside of a crib/pack and play. With a unit this small I would have liked to have seen a belt clip attachment option {as this is an extremely lightweight monitor that would be very easy to carry around on a belt or to hook onto clothing}, but this is definitely not a deal breaker.

When researching online I was unable to come across the ability to purchase additional cameras separately, but the ability to add onto this parent unit with three additional cameras is already in place. I am sure that it is only a matter of time before additional cameras becomes available. I have had no problems with this camera and love all the features that they have packed into this fun little unit. What’s more, this unit is priced well at around $129.97 {current price online at time of publication} especially when I compared it to other video baby monitors on the market.
