Levana Keera PTZ Baby Video Monitor With 2 Cameras Review

Disclosure; This is not a sponsored post. I did receive a product sample to facilitate my review how the opinions here are my own. This post contains affiliate links. 

       When I was expecting my first son, I purchased a regular baby monitor that picked up sound. I didn’t see the purpose of video monitoring and thought I would be fine without it. I was wrong! I found myself unable to do everyday activities without wanting to check on my baby (visually). I solved this by moving his swing into the kitchen. This way, if he was swinging and napping I could turn and see him. As a busy Mom now expecting my 4th son, I look forward to using a video monitor to allow baby to have quiet time in a separate room. I know his older 3 brothers can be noisy and very interested in him, thus interrupting nap time and allowing little peace when he’ll need it. I’m very excited to review the Levana PTZ Baby Video Monitor with 2 Cameras. Why 2 cameras? Because baby doesn’t just stay in one room! I have one camera setup in the nursery, and one setup in my bedroom for easy monitoring. If I’m washing the dishes and wondering…are my older sons trying to snuggle the baby? I can simply glance at the screen to find out! Check out the features:

Features include;

  • 3.5″ touch panel screen
  • Record video and take photos
    • 2GB micro SD card included 
    • SD Card Adapter for micro SD card
  • Smooth and silent pan/tilt/zoom camera
  • 10 hour battery life for video monitor
    • Also can plug in camera and use outlet power
  • Two-way communication (listen to baby and talk back)
  • Smart LED ring that changes color based on intensity of baby noise
  • Infrared night vision up to 12 feet away 
  • Digital signal reaches up to 750 feet away
    •  (optimum range 150 ft through floors/walls)
  • Expand set up to 4 cameras!
  • Plays 3 Lullabies with Remote Activation
  • Comes with grommets for wall mounting cameras

     The Package came with 2 Cameras, the Video unit, 3 Plugs (one for each), the Video unit battery, 4 screws and 4 grommets (to mount cameras to wall if desired), a San Disk card adapter (to put the micro SD card in and insert into computer or printer), a Micro SD card (already in video unit). The battery is rechargeable and what allows the unit to operate for up to 10 hours not plugged in. However, the monitor and cameras started working right away when they were plugged in. The video unit is the only part that can operate when not plugged in, the cameras need to be plugged in to work.
     Unit Pros include coming with 2 cameras that mean you can monitor 2 rooms at once or have 2 views of the same room. You can’t see both cameras at once on the screen, but it’s easy to switch from camera to camera. The unit will take up to 4 cameras, so adding an additional 2 is an option. The video monitor has a rechargable battery and continues to be lightweight even with this addition. It has a flip-up antenna and kickstand that can be used to prop up and keep an ‘eye’ on baby while doing activities like cooking, taking a shower and maybe even laundry.
     The video monitor does not have the same quality as my Iphone and can look grainy. For the cost of the unit, including 2 cameras and the monitor I didn’t expect it to have the look of a much pricier phone, but it is worth noting for the review. The unit and cameras feel lightweight and can easily be hung with the grommets and screws provided. The manual does say to keep the camera at least 3 feet away from where baby is staying, in order to prevent a strangulation hazard with the cord.

    I hooked up a complex webcam setup 10 years ago when our girls were born. It seems like it is so easy now – just hook it up and go!

    Two video cameras are certainly better then one when it comes to the safety of your infant! I think it is fantastic that your other kids love the baby and want to snuggle with him!
