Home Sentry 2 Camera Baby Monitor Reviews
This monitor offers the best in digital encryption technology, ensuring that you won’t be broadcasting the image of your sleeping baby beyond the walls of your home. You can also be assured of static free picture and sound with no interference.
While up to 8 cameras can be added, there are no additional parents units available, meaning you will have to carry the one unit everywhere you go. There is no nightlight feature on this monitor. The 100 foot indoor range is on the low end for digital monitors.
The general consensus among users is that it is easy to use and performs very well. The clear picture and sound are the major selling points on this unit. The Home Sentry 2 Camera Digital Baby Monitor puts the emphasis where it belongs: on good quality video and audio to allow you to see your baby and hear clearly. It does offer many additional features that enhance performance, but lacks some of the extras like a nightlight.
