When my boys were babies we didn’t need a baby monitor. To be honest we never actually saw the point of having one. Looking back I now know that it was because we lived in a small home so you could hear if they were crying or awake. When I was pregnant with Poppet we moved into our brand new home which is substantially larger with a completely different layout than our previous. It didn’t occur to us that because of the layout change and space between our room and the nursery that we couldn’t actually hear her. This of course prompted us to purchase a baby monitor. We read review after review and chose the Oricom Secure 710. It was fantastic!
I have 100% faith in Oricom as far as their baby monitors are concerned. This is why when I was offered the opportunity to review the new Oricom Secure 850 I couldn’t say yes fast enough. For the record, it is amazing! This high quality digital baby monitor features a motorised pan-tilt camera which is controlled through the parent unit. The tilt camera is capable of a 300 degree horizontal and 110 degree vertical movement which allows you better visibility of the nursery.
The 4.3″ display monitor produces a clear image both day and night thanks to the high quality and infrared camera. The Oricom Secure 850 offers so many wonderful features including: 5 soothing lullabies, a soft and comforting night light, room temperature display, digital zoom on the parent unit and much more. This monitor is capable of using up to 4 cameras (additional cameras are sold separately) and boasts up to an 8 hour battery life.
My favourite features of the Oricom Secure 850 are the parent talk back which allows you to calm your little one when they are beginning to stir without having to go into the room. You know as well as I do that once you make eye contact, THEY ARE UP! The motorised movement of the camera is beyond impressive. It is silent when moving so there is no risk of it waking up your baby should you need or want to have a look around. I did find a spot in the house (a 15cm section of my desk in my office) where there was some interference but it was minimal, especially when you consider how many electronic devices are in close proximity.
Even though I would not expect you to need it the Oricom Secure 850 comes with a 3 year warranty. The camera is very easy to install. You can sit it flat on a shelf or hang it on the wall and thanks to the tilt capabilities it still provides amazing visibility.
