With so many choices of baby monitors out in the current market, it has become increasingly difficult to choose one that will suit your needs. Fortunately, there are brands and products that stand out from the rest, narrowing down the options. Throughout time, there has been one consistent player on the field, knocking down the rest and continues to emerge as the best-selling baby monitor of all time.
Here is a list of reasons why Infant Optics DXR-8 remains on top of the game. Infant Optics Dxr-8 3d Print
Best Features of Infant Optics DXR-8 Infant Optics Dxr-8 3d Print
1. Maximum security — no prying eyes and ears
In 2018, the world of parents was shaken when a mother reportedly heard a strange man’s voice over her baby monitor, saying expletives and threatening to kidnap her child. More cases were revealed afterwards up to 2019, when a kid from another family recounted an unfamiliar voice saying,”I love you” through the speaker. All baby monitors involved were connected devices, meaning they relied upon the Internet to operate.
Imagine buying a product that is supposed to give you peace of mind, but ends up making you feel more vulnerable. It is a natural response to become more cautious and discerning of the products we purchase for our homes and families.
Types of Technology
With regard to baby monitors, this is the number 1 reason why, despite many, more innovative gadgets now available, people still trust Infant Optics DXR-8 to give the best safety, being a non-connected, local-only device. Not only does it utilize Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology, which makes it extremely difficult for hackers to trace the monitor’s signal, it also uses Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS), which avoids interference. In addition to that, they also added a built-in encryption, to truly deter any possible pesky intruders. Infant Optics DXR-8 maintains a 100 percent hack-free reputation, solidifying its place as the all-time best-selling baby monitor in the market.
2. Quick setup — no brainer instructions
With very minimal assembly needed for external components, like batteries, charger cables, or additional lenses, the Infant Optics DXR-8 is pretty much a plug-and-play contraption. The kit provides a user manual, as well as a quick start guide that even has a section dedicated to troubleshooting. Once powered on, the camera and monitor units automatically sync together, saving you time and effort from the usual configurations that most modern gadgets need.
3. Variety of interchangeable lenses — find the best view for you
The package includes an aluminum lens that is best for your basic needs. Providing colored images in the daytime, and clear night vision in the dark, most parents are happy with this lens for viewing their baby in the crib.
A telephoto lens can be purchased separately, for parents that want to have the ability to take a better look at smaller details. Is that a rash forming on my baby’s leg? What is that in my child’s mouth? Those are a few of the things you can inspect with this lens that can go up to 2x closer with its optical zoom.
Wide-Angle Infant Optics Dxr-8 3d Print
The wide-angle lens provides a broader view of a space, which is ideal for children that can now move more freely. Keep tabs with what they’re doing in any given moment without interrupting their creative, solitary play. Even when your children are older, this lens can be used as an overall safety camera for rooms around the house.
4. Expandable up to 4 cameras — grows with the needs of your family
Removing the need to get a new baby monitor for each and every addition to the household, the Infant Optics DXR-8 is expandable up to 4 cameras. You can switch views with the touch of a button. As stated earlier, this feature makes the baby monitor more flexible, in the sense that it could be used as an overall security system in the future.
5. Dependable battery life and span — up to 15.5 hours
Though Infant Optics has promised up to 12 hours of battery life, on a mixed viewing and power-saving mode, the monitor unit has been proven to last up to 15.5 hours on a single charge. Additionally, being a Li-ion battery means its life span is a lot longer than those of NiMH cells, used in many other baby monitor manufacturers. The device also allows battery replacements, which is not available in other products — requiring a replacement of the entire baby monitor when the battery eventually gives out.
6. Quality sound and video — everything you need at a glance Infant Optics Dxr-8 3d Print
While it can’t be denied that some baby monitors now have HD resolutions which deliver much sharper images, Infant Optics DXR-8’s audio and video are still excellent for what it promises. You can see all of your child’s expressions and activity during the day, and observe moves at night.
It relays sounds clearly, even at the lowest volume setting. Additionally, it includes a sound sensor for when the baby starts to cry loudly, and it intelligently flashes lights on the monitor to alert the parent (especially those people who are hard of hearing).
a. Well-designed display monitor
The monitor’s display unit is light, at 5.38 ounces, and the screen size at 3.5 inches is comparable to smaller smart phones — more than enough room to find out what your baby is up to. It gives a feeling of sturdiness, though it fits easily in one’s hand (or even your back pocket!), and has been proven to withstand several tumbles with no negative results.
The viewing screen is also easy to navigate, offering tons of options with just a few buttons to choose from: On, Menu, Shortcut, Talk, and 4 directional arrows. Uncluttered and easy, just as any parent would prefer. The monitor is one of the best features in my opinion and is enough to make it worth the purchase already.
b. Tilt and pan Infant Optics Dxr-8 3d Print
One of the best features of the Infant Optics DXR-8 monitor is its capability to tilt and pan the camera device from its display unit. If you realize that your baby has moved slightly off your perspective, you can attempt to correct the angle from where you are without having to scamper into the other room by choosing to pan left, right, up, or down.
c. Clear night vision with automatic low-light detection
Many other baby monitors will need to manually be switched to night mode, but not with Infant Optics DXR-8’s low-light detection. Once in this mode, its low light sensor activates the infrared lights from 8 invisible IR LED lights. Simply put: dark remains dark, and the baby’s sleep is in no danger of being upset; but your baby will be displayed as clear as day from your viewing screen. So long as the camera is setup within 15 feet of your baby, the camera can display color images throughout the night. For years, the DXR-8’s night vision camera has been crowned among the best.
d. Temperature indication Infant Optics Dxr-8 3d Print
With risks correlated to temperature changes, like sudden infant death (SID), it is particularly valuable to have a temperature sensor in a baby monitor. Infant Optics DXR-8’s reading can be in Celsius of Fahrenheit, and are displayed on the top right corner of the viewing screen. Should it sense an extreme rise or drop in temperature, it will indicate too low (LL) or too high (HH) on the screen also.
7. Uninterrupted feed — stable local connection
Given the camera and viewing screens are linked via radio frequencies and not through the Internet, drops and reconnections are less likely occurrences. Wondering whether you’re still getting an updated feed or not is another thing to be concerned about, but the stable and secure linking of the Infant Optics DXR-8’s end to end linking alleviates that concern.
