Summer Infant Baby Touch WiFi Video Monitor: A Mom’s Perspective

Summer InfantBaby Touch® WiFi Video Monitor & Internet Viewing System

Multi-platform system enables in-home, continuous and overnight monitoring on the 3.5” color touchscreen monitor and in-home and away from home viewing on smartphones, tablets and computers with the free Summer Link WiFi APP for Apple and Android devices from U.S. iTunes and Google Play APP stores.  Great for working parents, out of town grandparents and even “date-night  peace of mind.

First and foremost I would like to sincerely thank Summer Infant for the gift of the Wi-Fi home monitor. As I am back to work in a few short months, this monitor will come into perfect use – thank you!

1431115387690Setting up the monitor is extremely easy. From opening the box and getting out each piece to physically setting up the monitor for use. There are many benefits that I like about this monitor, including it being easy to move from one room to another, and the ability to move the camera’s line of vision in any direction with the hand-held piece. The screen resolution is amazing and the night vision is quite impressive. Although the instruction manual suggests charging the battery of the hand-held piece for several hours prior to the initial use (which I did), I like how the system comes ready to use with some battery life. With only 1 child at the moment, the dual screen option is not suited for me, however it is a feature I do anticipate using in the future. I am considering purchasing additional cameras so I don’t have to transport the camera around to different rooms or purchase several monitor systems. I greatly appreciate the safety features that have been considered in the manufacturing of the monitor. From the safety clips that easily attach to the wall and allows the cord to be easily placed in or taken out of the clips, to the light on the camera that works in accordance to the sound in the room.

While I am quite pleased with the overall product, there are some down-falls. The room temperature is a decent feature that is 1431115387861fairly accurate, though it is not completely necessary. In addition to the battery life only being decent, I don’t like how the picture goes out on the hand-held monitor after several minutes of inactivity. While it is good the lights indicating the sound continues to show and simply pressing the top button will get the picture back, I would still rather the picture remain on at all times, just for piece of mind. The most disappointing aspect about the product is that the application to allow me to see the camera outside of the home through a wi-fi network does not seem to work. While the set-up seems fairly easy up to the point I was at, the “camera did not find my home wi-fi network”. Unfortunately, I followed all the troubleshooting steps to no avail.

I am disappointed that the main aspect of this particular video monitor – being able to use wi-fi to see what’s happening from anywhere in the world – does not seem to work for me. Although there is always the concern of privacy issues with “hackers” finding means of witnessing events through the camera, I was really looking forward to using this featuring while out of the house. Although it is frustrating this amazing feature will be lost on me, I am overall very pleased with the baby monitor, as with the many other Summer products I own, primarily for its quality and easy installation.

On a closing note, I would like to once again thank Summer Infant for this great product!
