Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Motorola MBP36 Remote Wireless Video Baby Monitor. The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 4.00 stars, and the price range is $189.95-$249.99.

Motorola's MBP36 Digital Audio Baby Monitor is equipped with 2.4GHz FHSS technology for sound clarity, a 3.5" LCD color display for sound and video monitoring, with infrared night vision and built-in data encryption for added security. The video baby monitor comes with a range of 590 feet and an out of range warning indicator. Some other features include infrared night vision; remote pan, tilt and zoom function; two-way communication with high sensitivity microphone; volume control; 5 pre-recorded lullabies; room temperature thermometer; adjustable multi-angle camera to scan the entire room; sound-activated 5 LED lights alert; automatic channel selection and can be expanded by adding up to 4 baby units. The parent unit is portable and runs on a rechargeable NiMH battery pack and the baby unit runs with an AC adapter only.

However, this baby monitor has a very short/poor battery life and takes very long time to charge. The day/night picture quality is not very sharp and clear as claimed and stalls frequently. The power cord used with this device is a nonstandard size and cannot be replaced or purchased separately. The company replaces the cord only if the device is under warranty.

Overall, the Motorola MBP36 Remote Wireless Video Baby Monitor is a pretty good choice for any parents or caretaker, giving the freedom to move around while assuring the child’s complete safety within reach.
