The best review Optics DXR-8 baby monitors no wifi Infant
Hey guys and welcome back to my channel Coffee with Mommi. In today’s video, we are going to be doing a full detailed review of the infant optics DXR-8 wireless digital video monitoring system.
That was a mouthful to say. I did get sent this by the company, but as you guys know I mentioned this every single time I do a review and I get sent the product does not change my opinion on the product if I like it or if I do like it. All my opinions are totally honest, and I test this and I use this and I’m here to give you guys honest good baby reviews.
So basically that’s what we’re going to do today. So if you were in the market looking for a video monitor, I’m gonna let you guys know about this one. And basically, this is what it looks like here, so if you guys wanna know everything about this monitor baby monitor, and let’s just get right into the review. Hey guys, I just wanted to share Liam, I feel like I haven’t put him on the video in so long, and I just wanted to have you guy see him.
Can you say hi, before we do our review on the baby monitor?
Cause you’re about to go take a nap. I hope you guys like my background. I think it’s kind of cute, kind of simple. I first figured my channel’s called Coffee with Mommy, so I should include some coffee mugs if you guys know, I love coffee mugs. And today’s coffee mug is this clear coffee mug, and basically, that’s the only exciting thing about it.
There’s really no sentimental value to this mug. It’s just a clear coffee mug, but if you guys want to know how I like my coffee the color of it, this is the color I like my coffee. Okay, so when the company said they wanted to send this to me, I almost didn’t let them send it to me just because I really never used a baby monitor with Liam. Now I did have one for Livia, I think it was called like angel care or something, but I honestly never used it.
Like I probably used it maybe five times and that was that it came with a breathing mat and that’s what I use most of the time. So whenever I had Liam I really just didn’t think I needed one because we didn’t have a nursery and he slept in our room. But now we’re in a house and Liam is actually in his bedroom with his sister, it’s really nice to have a monitor at night, or when we’re downstairs and he’s taking a nap upstairs. When I got sent this I started using it right away.
Literally, within like two or three days, I was like, oh I need my baby monitor, cause Liam’s taking his nap upstairs. It wasn’t until after I got this, that I decided that I could finally switch Liam from our nursery, oh not our nursery, from our bedroom to the bedroom with Livia. Let’s just go over the review and then kind of at the end I’ll kind of like wrap up my total thoughts of it. So basically this is what was sent to me. It comes in a box like this. Very nice, let me try to do a little close up here. Definitely a step up from whenever the monitor that I had, that was only like black and white and this one does all kinds of crazy things. So let’s just get right into that. Let me actually open this.
So what’s included in this?
Basically, you get the, oh I almost knocked my coffee over. You get, I almost just did it again. You get the monitoring unit. And this right here will stand up like this, I will show a closeup of this and the gear and everything, but I don’t want to do it here, because you’ll not be able to see the lighting. And then it comes with this little antenna thing right here, basically, this is what it is, It’s very very light. Then this is what you put into the room of the baby, or the nursery or wherever you’re gonna put it.
It does include a wall mount, this is basically what it looks like here. You do get an optical zoom lens that’s included, you get a rechargeable ion battery which goes in the monitoring unit. One thing I thought was really cool, is you actually get two extensions or two cord, so you get a threefold cord, a three-inch cord, and then you get a 10-inch cord. I think it’s awesome, so I have a separate cord for, in my bedroom, and then also I have a separate cord downstairs.
It will get to the charging and everything and a little bit, I mean you get a USB output, you get a manual and also you get a quick start guide. So if you don’t wanna read this entire manual, it comes with like a little quick start to where you can just easily install it, which is what I did, and it works really easy. So here’s what kind of shocked me about this monitor. So I’m not gonna turn it on right now just because when they’re close by each other they make like a loud noise.
You could like to move this, to like have it go, while you can control this, to move this, it’s the coolest thing, If Liam’s like standing up in his crib I can move this to go up, to see his head. Or if he’s sleeping, I can move it down, or I can look to see like Livia bedroom or Livia side of the room, or something like that which I think is so cool. That was something I did not have on the monitor, my previous monitor. And I’m like Oh my gosh like monitors have gotten so high tech. So the screen on this is 3.5 inches.
It has a power-saving mode, it has a two-way talk. Whenever Livia goes to bed and she’s getting up, and walking around, I can be like Livia go night, and she’ll get in bed, and like the first time it likes scared the crap out of her, I felt really, really bad. It has an alarm feature, it has a temperature sensor, which works really well. It’s actually really spot on, to what the temperature is in the house.
It has a retractable antenna and it has night vision. So if I have the window open with light, it’s a colored monitor but if it’s closed it will switch to night vision which is black and white. You can connect different cameras to this if you wanted to get more cameras. Different eight levels of volume, eight levels of screen brightness, a sleep mode delay, digital zoom, alarm setting. Also, you can buy a separate loom, a separate zoom on here called the wide-angle zoom.
And you can get that separately if you wanted to put it in the mount and have like a bigger view of the room. Let’s talk about charging a little bit, the cause is one thing I do not like about it, it does come with the charging cables and it has the battery pack back here. Now in order to charge us fully completed, it has to stay on the charger for seven hours. Now you can use it while it’s charging. So you don’t have to have to worry about it, like shutting off, and you’re having to wait for it to charge to turn on, If you have it charged it will automatically turn on, which I think it is great.
Now one disadvantage I think is I don’t think the charge lasts amazing, I did test it out, it lasted anyway between two and a half to three hours, from it being a full charge to not having it be on the charger, like walking around with it or bringing it downstairs and not having a charger. It lasted for about two and a half to three hours. So you couldn’t have this overnight on your unstained and not have it on the charger overnight, it will shut off in the middle of the night from being dead.
What I find works best is in them, it still has a good charge on it. That’s why I think it’s good they have the two USB cords to charge it. Another thing is so to say that it is not fully charged and you go and put it on the charger, it doesn’t get a full charge until you shut it off. If it died, and then I put it on the charger and I’m using it all night the only way it’s going to get a really good full charge is if it’s completely off.
The charger, it’s not like it’s bad. I do think I just wanna warn you of that, but honestly, like I never really have issues with it dying and I not gonna be able to use it. Like I can always use it, and if it’s just starting to die, then I just put it on the charger, but you can set the volume up pretty loud, it gets pretty loud. So if you have it on the charger on the side, of the end table, you’ll be able to hear it. Like it’s pretty loud, and it does make it a little light indicator. So this is one thing that I love about this.
This is so funny, So guys sometimes Livia is loud, or they’re complaining and I can shut the volume off, on it to where I don’t have to hear it, but I can still, it still makes an indicator, that it’s loud, that there’s noise going on. But sometimes they don’t wanna listen to it. So is that awful?
So I will just kinda way of I’ll turn the volume down but I can still like see that they’re being loud, they’re fighting going to sleep but I don’t have to listen to it.
Another thing that I did wanna say, is sometimes it will say it’s out of range, but all you have to do is put this little antenna thing up, So if I’m like kind of far away from his bedroom, in the house, it will say out of signal, you all you have to do, is just put this little signal thing up and it will find a signal. So my thoughts on this monitor, I love this baby monitor. I really wish that I got this when Liam was a newborn, I think because I really didn’t care for my other monitor I just kind of rolled them all out.
I was like, I don’t need one, but I think if I had this for when Liam was taking naps in our room, I would have really, really liked it. And since I’ve got it, I literally use it numerous times a day. It’s just awesome, it’s the thing I think I love about it so much, it’s simple. It’s very straight to the point. It’s very, it was not hard to install. It’s easy to get, I mean, everything on here, it has like a shortcut menu for volume, it’s very user friendly.
That is everything for this review, You guys, I really hope you guys enjoyed this review. If you guys have any questions about this baby monitor at all, leave it in the comments down below, and then also check out they’re sold on Amazon.

The best review VAVA baby monitors non-wifi
Hey guys, welcome back to my channel. Today’s video is going to be a little bit different.
Today I’m going to be taking a break from the makeup and I’m gonna be showing you guys and talking to you guys all about my baby monitoring system that I’ve been using for a couple of months now. So it’s just gonna be a quick little review and talking to you guys about it.
My daughter is asleep right now, so if I sound like I’m a little bit quiet, that is why. But yeah, if you guys wanna see what baby monitoring system that I use, then just keep on watching. Okay, so today I’m gonna be talking to you guys about my monitoring system and I’m gonna show you guys real quick the box. Whoa. This is the box right here.
This is the VAVA baby monitoring system. And I’m absolutely in love with it. It is such a great monitor. This right here is exactly what the camera looks like. Excuse this mark. My little one went ahead and colored on it because that’s her new favorite thing to do, color on everything. But this is exactly what the camera looks like here. I don’t have it on me because like I said, she’s napping so I’m using it on her.
But it looks exactly like this and this camera here is able to move up and down and then it also is able to do a whole complete spin around to pan around your room. So yeah, I just wanted to show you guys really quick what the camera looked like because like I said, I don’t have it on me. But let me talk to you guys about the actual little camera. So the camera, as I said, is able to move up and down and then it pans all around your entire room, which is amazing.
It comes with the little lens that it originally comes with. I purchased on my own a wide-angle camera lens because of course, it’s awesome to be able to pan around a room and zoom in and all that stuff if you need to but for me, I kinda wanted something that I was able to just hook up and see everything, which is why I purchased the wide-angle lens. And with that, I’m able to just look at her entire room without having to pan around and look for her if she’s in a different area where the camera is not facing.
So that’s what was awesome about the actual lens. It does come with a regular lens as I said. If you’re just using it just as they sleep above their crib or whatnot but for me, I was using it a lot for her playroom. Now that she’s a little bit older, she’s almost two, I let her play in her playroom if I have things that I have to do, like cleaning or things around the house.
I let her be in her room without having to sit in there and just watch here. I’m able to just hook up her monitor and watch her as I do whatever I need to do. Another thing it has is a microphone on the actual camera, so if she’s talking or saying anything or calling for me, I’m able to hear her perfectly because there is a camera on the, there’s a camera, there’s a microphone on that camera.
So I’m able to hear her whenever she speaks or if she needed me or if she was stuck or any kind of thing going on, I would be able to hear her, which is something also that I loved. But yeah, that’s pretty much the whole little camera system. I’m gonna talk to you guys now about the screen, which is this and I do have the screen right here.
It is a five-inch screen, which is something that I loved, which was something that I wanted because I wanted something that was big and I’m able to just look at the screen and see what’s going on. My previous monitor was pretty small, so I really had to really look to see what was going on, which this one I can just take a quick peek and see.
On this monitor, you have, of course, the menu button, which you’re able to set it however you wanna set it. And then it has your zoom button and then it has your little roll here where you’re able to pan around the room and see what’s going on your arrows. And then down here, it is your talk button, which now I’m able to push and talk to her.
I just pushed it on accident. So I’m able to push the button and talk to her while she’s doing whatever she’s doing. She doesn’t have to push a button, I can easily just hear her talking, which I’m sure that’s commonsense but I’m just gonna mention it anyway. So I’m able to talk to her here. And be like hey, don’t do that or hey, I’m coming.
Whatever the situation may be. As I said, I only use it for playtime in her room and when she’s napping. So right now, she is napping, so I can show you guys quickly what that looks like. Another thing that I like is this one has, of course, they have the day and night mode. So in her playroom, it’s in day mode but once she’s asleep and it’s dark, the theme is automatic.
So the camera knows on its own that it needs to shift into night mode and it does that automatically. I don’t have to switch it. With previous monitors that I had, I had to actually go in there and put it in night mode, where this one is smart enough that it just automatically goes straight into night mode, which is something that I absolutely love.
So right now, as I said, she’s napping, it’s dark in there and it’s in night mode. And you can see her right there. And the screen, as I said, it’s so big. What I love is that the screen is so big, it is so crystal clear that you can see everything going on. You can even see her breathing, which is something that I love because, for the longest time, I wouldn’t even let her nap alone because I wanted to watch her as she slept. So this took a really long time for me to leave her in the room by herself.
First-time mom, I was paranoid, I was scared. Now I’m more comfortable because if you look at the monitor, it’s so clear that I can see her as she’s breathing and it gives me so much comfort being able to see that.
It also, what was I gonna say?
It’s such a big screen but what I like is that it doesn’t have much weight to it. So if I’m walking around the house, I’m able to just carry it along with me with my phone and it’s not heavy but it’s big is what I like. It has a wide range for you, I believe it’s like 900 feet where you can take it away.
So if I let my dogs go outside really quick to use the restroom, I can walk out there, stand on the porch and hold the monitor and there’s no fuzziness, nothing going on like that. I can walk around my whole entire room into my garage, whatever the case, whatever I’m doing and the monitor is still crystal clear, no fuzziness. It has a very large range, which is what I love.
For the most part, I just have it, it has a little kickstand. For the most part, I just have it sitting up on wherever I am and I’m just watching her, which is another thing that it like is that it has this little kickstand so you’re able to prop it up anywhere you want. And then it also, let me see if I’m missing anything that it says here on the box. It is an HD camera.
I don’t know if I mentioned that already but it is HD. You can tell. It’s super crisp, super clear. It’s very much HD. It has a very long charge to it as well. I can get away with using it for about two and a half days in a row before having to recharge it again, which is something that I like to because I do forget to plug it in every night because I do not use it at night.
Her crib is in our bedroom right next to my bed. So I’m able to just peak in myself. So I do tend to forget to charge it at night, which is great that it lasts so long. It does have an alarm function on it, which I never use. I don’t use the alarm function on it but it does have that. And then, of course, I mentioned the lens, how you’re able to change it, which is amazing because you can have the standard lens that it comes with or the wide-angle lens.
It says 100% digital privacy, no video or sound passed through the internet, which is another thing that’s awesome because you don’t want any of that stuff going on with your child. Another thing that it has is if say you have a second child and you need to watch both of them, you do not need to purchase a whole second system, you can just purchase an extra, let me place this down real quick, you can just purchase an extra camera like this and you’re able to connect both of them up.
I believe it’s you can have four of them connected to one monitor at a time and you’re able to switch back and forth. I believe I heard, I don’t have, I only have one child, so I haven’t had to use that function but I believe they said you can do like split screens and watch them all at the same time, which I think is amazing because monitoring systems are pretty pricey and you don’t wanna have to buy more than one if you have more than one child.
So I thought that that was a great thing that all you would need to purchase is a second camera, which is another thing we were considering doing because I have one in our bedroom at all times and I like to have one in her playroom instead of having to constantly take it back and forth. It’s kind of a pain in the butt.
So that’s another thing we’re planning on purchasing is a second camera. But I don’t think I missed anything about it. Yeah, up to four cameras are what it says on here. Yeah, I believe that’s everything about it. In the box, it just comes with your charger, your monitoring screen, and then the camera, plus of course, all the instructions that it comes within there.
And very simple to set up. It’s easy. That’s another thing that I like was that it was easy to set up. My previous ones, like I keep saying my previous ones, were not very easy to set up.
You just want something that’s quick and easy because you’re just trying to watch your child and make sure it looks good, right?
So in my opinion, this has been by far the best camera that I have purchased. I did purchase this on Amazon because I wanted it fast. I believe it is the same price on their website as it is on Amazon. I just wanted it to come quickly. And I believe it was about 165. Yeah, 165, and then as I said, I also purchased the wide-angle lens on Amazon as well, which was very affordable. That was only 6.99. $6.99, which you can’t beat. So I purchased that. I do have both lenses now. But for the most part, it is on the wide-angle lens.
But yeah, so I think that’s pretty much everything about this camera. What I would say is my absolute favorite, of course, is the big screen and how clear it is. You guys, as I said, you can literally see her taking her breaths as she’s asleep. And that’s something that I love. That’s how you know it is super clear and super amazing. So if you guys are in the market for, oh, I did leave one thing out as well.
It shows up here on the monitor the degrees it is in the room and then it also has the little moon here, which is telling me that it’s in night vision and then of course, the time and your battery. And then, of course, the bars that you have here and then it does have this antenna. So that’s pretty much it. So if you guys are in the market for a baby monitoring system, I would highly suggest the VAVA monitoring system because it’s amazing.
You will not be disappointed. And it’s pretty affordable for all the things that you get with it and all the things that it does offer as well. So yeah, that’s pretty much it. If you guys have any questions on the monitoring system, anything that I may have left out, feel free to leave that down below and I would love to get back to you guys on that.
If you have any other questions, any other things you guys would like to see, feel free to leave that down below as well. And I don’t think I have anything else to say, other than I hope that you subscribe if you haven’t already, like this video if you liked it, and don’t forget to turn on your post notifications so that you know every time I upload a video. And we hope to see you at the next one. Bye.

Hey guys, it’s Julie from Baby Nav. And today I’m really excited to share with you a product, that I think might ease your minds a little bit, and will definitely ease some of your nighttime worries.
This is the Angelcare, Wireless, Baby Movement Monitor. So this Angelcare monitor has a really great, 4.3 inch, touch screen monitor. And this monitor is going to monitor, movement, audio, and video. And I really love the touch screen parent unit.
But first, I have to tell you, what is so unique about this monitor and the whole system. It includes the only wireless sensor pad, that’s on the market. So this little sensor pad right here, is how the unit monitors the movement. This literally comes out of the box, You’re going to put the battery in that comes with it, you’re going to slide this under the crib mattress, and then it will literally alert you if the baby does not move for 20 seconds. It’s really that simple. And it’s totally and completely wireless.
Which is so great, so it’s one less thing you have to worry about, which that you have some cords, and that you have to keep them all, you know, pushed back and down, where they’re supposed to be in the crib. You don’t have to worry about this, it’s going to use Wi-Fi, it’s gonna connect to this unit, right out of the box.
The pair immediately. Like it literally happened immediately when I took them out and turned this on. And you’re going to have the movement monitor. So some other great things about this monitor, are that it does have, on the touch screen parent unit, a color-changing, room temperature display. So you’re gonna go in here… It’s literally this touch screen is so easy, you literally just touch it, you’ll see that there’s the main menu there, for settings.
You’re gonna see that there’s the volume, and there are the pan and zoom, and all this stuff is here. But you are literally gonna go into the settings, and you’re going to set the temperature. So whatever temperature you set it at, the color-changing unit it will get blue if it’s too cold, according to your settings, and it will get red if it’s too hot.
So you’re gonna be able to easily see, that baby is comfortable and where you want them to be. It’s able to be, with the camera unit, it’s able to be wall-mounted, so I just have it on the tabletop, so it’s able to be wall-mounted, it comes with the unit to do the wall mounting. Or with that simple magnet, it’s able to be a tabletop mount.
Now, one thing I just want to remind everybody, there is a chord, because this does need to be powered, and this does have wireless. All wires need to be at least three feet away from the crib. But with this Angelcare monitor, you’re not going to worry about that.
