The Infant Optics DXR-5 is a compact video baby monitor and is designed with portability in mind. Its slim and lightweight body frame makes it easy to monitor your baby even with an active lifestyle. Equipped with a 2.4 GHz digital wireless FHSS communication link, the DXR-5 is 100% secure and provides superior sound and video clarity. This video monitor features a 2.4 inch super bright TFT screen, which is powered by a rechargeable battery for hours of portable usage. It allows seeing up to 10 feet in complete darkness using invisible infrared light. This useful feature toggles on and off for use when needed. The baby monitor boasts a wireless transmission covering a distance of up to 800 feet in open and 150 feet in enclosed areas.

The wireless baby monitor also eliminates interference from other wireless household devices like cordless phones, video games or wireless routers. The DXR-5 is plug and play and can be placed as per the convenience on any surface and can also be mounted at a height for a vertical view by tilting down from an elevated position. This device comes with the option to connect up to 4 camera units simultaneously and navigate the video channels by simply clicking a button on the monitor.

Many reviewers find that the body is made of cheap quality plastic and the camera’s power cord is short. Some users also say the camera lacks panning features. Also the power saving mode does not bring back the picture upon movement or sound.

Overall, the Infant Optics DXR-5 features all the reliable and intuitive functions expected from the brand extending complete peace of mind. It is simple, easy to setup and operate and come at an affordable price.
