Pros:

Being, probably, the best long range baby monitor is in my books the biggest plus that i can give. You can easily add more cameras to it which cuts the costs quite a bit if you think long term. Big screen, 4.5 inch is more than enough to view your child, night vision so you can do it at night too. Very high battery life if you are using it just in case that your kid is sick or crying, also the 10 hours video mode is perfect for this video monitor.

Cons:

Not many, just the lack of a room thermometer, but I’m sure that it will be added soon.

Review

The Levana Stella baby video monitor is around for a long time, because they offer a few great things that we will get to later. The most important feature is the 4.3 inch screen which will probably make you a monitor addict but is bigger than most competitors have to offer.

A big screen is plus but what about the quality of the video that it streams, I must say that it is high-resolution image which will let you see every little thing that your baby makes. Another great feature is the pan/tilt/zoom which lets you control the camera remotely and follow your kid everywhere in the room and zoom in on the activities at any time.

The range of this video monitor is great, 750 ft but this is in open space,the real range inside a house (signal has to pass through walls or floors) is about 200 ft, this one is the last case scenario. You’ll have no problem receiving your video stream from this monitors if you are outside in the yard. If you live in an apartment the range will be small because the signal has to pass through steel and concrete which will lower it’s range, hopefully you don’t want to watch your baby from the store or something similar.

The battery life is also great, up to 36 hours in power save mode (PEED – Power on/of Energy Efficient Picture) don’t worry if you want to watch your kid all the time because in normal mode it will last for up to 10 hours.

We were talking about the talk back feature (Talk to Baby – accordingly to Levana) that rapidly becomes a must have for any monitor lucky we have that. Now you can easily talk with your child and will make the device more user friendly. It also carries 3 lullabies which can be played with the bush of a button.

I like the fact that you can add more cameras to it, up to four, so you won’t need to buy another one if you have twins or plan another baby.

It also has night vision feature so you can view the crib all night if you want to, if the distance is less than 12 ft in ideal condition, I really don’t know what they want to say with this. The fact that it lack a room thermometer is a minus in my books and it shows in the grade that it received.

The support is great as they truly value their customers and because we are in the 21st century you will easily find FAQs and PDF manuals that will answer all of your question.

Conclusion

Overall the Levana Stella is probably the best long range baby monitor, it offers top of the line accessories that beats many of it’s competitors.You have the ability to interact with your baby if he is restless while you go to his room with the help of the talk back feature. I must say that I’m impressed with its features and hope that in the near future they will add a thermometer.
