Product Description

See your little one crawl, walk and explore the nursery with the VM5271-2 Expandable Digital Video Baby Monitor with 2 Motorized Wide-Angle Lens Cameras. Every corner of the nursery is within sight with this motorized wide-angle lens camera that lets you easily zoom in and out from a narrow 30-degree view to a wide 100-degree view. Unlike most baby monitors, this camera's motorized optical lens zooms up to 10x, giving you a clear close-up of your little one. A large 5-inch LCD screen on the VTech VM5271-2 Expandable Digital Video Baby Monitor makes it easy to see all the extra details the wide-angle lens captures. Automatic infrared night vision gives you a clear view of the nursery even with the lights out, so you can check in without interrupting nap time. Plus, you can see it all from almost anywhere in the house thanks to up to 1,000 feet of range. This system is expandable up to 4 cameras, making it a great option for growing families.

Features

  • High-resolution, 5-inch color LCD screen

I received this monitor as a gift from the weeSpring Parent Panel. There is so much I love about this monitor; it has so many features! I love that it is NOT connected to the internet for privacy. If the temperature in the baby's room gets outside a range I have chosen, I can set an alert to let me know; I think the temperature indicator is accurate based on comparing it to three other thermometers. As a parent of a noisy sleeper, I can set the listener to only let me hear sounds at a certain noise level so I only hear the snoring if I want to. The zoom in capability lets me clearly see if the baby has her pacifier in. I can talk to the baby and turn lullabies on and off remotely. The visual screen can "go to sleep" when the baby is silent and "wake up" when the monitor detects sound.

Con: the motorized camera lens makes a soft whir sound as it focuses (which is sometimes when it starts and when you zoom in or out); if you have a really light sleeper who wakes at EVERY sound, keep this monitor "on" or "asleep" at the same zoom instead of turning it off and on or zooming in and out, but this monitor has never woken my often light sleeper. Additionally, I could not pan around the room and see the whole room remotely. What can I see ? I can see 110 degrees of the room (which is about a corner of my room). This is perfect for looking in the baby's crib but not for following a mobile baby around the room. This monitor set comes with two separate cameras so I can see two different areas (separately or at the same time if I want). If I want to see more area, I can purchase two additional cameras and have a total of 4 cameras show up on the monitor. The night picture is also good. It is not as easy to see through the netting of a playpen / play-yard in the dark, but it is possible. The instructions say the cameras should be treated with care.

I have had my monitor for one month and love it! Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this monitor!

I received this monitor as a gift from the weeSpring Parent Panel. I am so grateful to weeSpring for giving me the opportunity to try this monitor out! The packaging for the monitor was good and the instruction were clear. I wish that the screws included with the monitor were a bit longer due to placing the camera in the corner for optimal viewing. I had to use my own longer screw for the setup. I also found it a hassle that the cord was not longer, as it plugs in, and you have to have a close outlet to place the camera. I feel that there should be an option for cordless cameras that way you have a bigger selection of space that you can place the monitor. I ended up setting up 2 cameras in opposite corners so I could have 360 viewing in split-screen mode. The daytime picture quality is good. The night time picture quality could definitely be better as it is quite grainy. The temperature indicator is correct as it was tested against 2 other devices. The parent unit is very simple to understand and navigate. You can set alerts and customize to your needs. The icons are big and easy to find. The talk back feature is clear. The lullabies are clear and there are several to chose from. The zoom feature works very well on the unit and comes in handy when viewing a sleeping or playing child. I use this camera to not only monitor sleep and naps but also for playtime as well. A few things I am bummed about is the inability for a pan feature for 360 viewing, not having a cordless option for the cameras, not being wi-fi accessible, not having an app a parent can view from work or when away from home, the screws for the installation being a bit too short to install in a corner, and the night mode being grainy. I would rate this monitor about a 5/10. I still use it daily and will continue to do so but would probably not recommend it to a friend. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this monitor!

Comments about Vtech 1001126 VTech Expandable Digital Video Baby Monitor with 2 Motorized Lenses Camera - VM5271-2:

This monitor was so easy to use! As a first time parent I need to see my daughter at all times and the Vetech video monitor was just the way to do that. This product made it easy to let my daughter hear me while I was away in another room doing chores or even in the bathroom when I need me time. I was able to see her clearly through the cameras from different angels which I loved. Unfortunately these cameras don't work wirelessly which would be really awesome so that wires wouldn't be in the way. Overall I would definitely recommend this monitor from Vtech to new parents who are wondering which monitor to choose from. Thanks to WeeSpring's Parent Panel for giving me the opportunity to try this monitor out.

By First time dad

from Pittsburgh, PA

  • lullabies/nature sounds
  • parent unit can be set to vibrate
  • room temperature monitor
  • sound activated screen feature
  • zoom feature

Best Uses

  • multiple children or rooms

Comments about Vtech 1001126 VTech Expandable Digital Video Baby Monitor with 2 Motorized Lenses Camera - VM5271-2:

Overall, I found this monitor to be of fairly good quality and would likely recommend it to others. Setup was fairly easy and straightforward. The parent unit screen is large and the zoom feature on the cameras worked relatively well. The two included cameras were helpful for us as our son sleeps in our room but will sometimes nap in his nursery. The split screen and patrol mode features would be helpful if you had multiple children in different rooms. I liked the talk-back feature, which we used to try to calm our child as we were on our way to the room. Our child sleeps with a specific sound machine already so we did not need the lullaby feature but this could be nice for other families. I liked that there were lullabies and nature sound options. The range of the monitor was good and seemed to work outside in our yard while baby slept in the house. I personally liked the fact that this monitor did not have wi-fi as I do not like the idea of other people potentially being able to "hack" into our monitor. While the monitor was nice overall, there were some things that I was not fond of or would change. I was somewhat disappointed with the picture quality, particularly in a low light room that the monitor did not consider dark enough for "night view." The picture, no matter what the lighting, looked grainy. While the wide angle lens was nice, I would like the option to pan around the room to get a better view. The monitor was sometimes overly sensitive to sounds, such as cars going by outside our house. I got a chance to try this monitor as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel.

Overall A Decent Monitor

By ChelsieD

from Fort Worth TX

Pros

  • Good Video quality in Daytime
  • Great At Recognizing Sound Changes

Cons

  • Cannot Pan
  • Grainy in Night Vision

Best Uses

  • Daytime
  • Playroom

Comments about Vtech 1001126 VTech Expandable Digital Video Baby Monitor with 2 Motorized Lenses Camera - VM5271-2:

This is a great product for daytime usage. I find it to have excellent picture quality in the day; however, the night is a bit grainy. It's zoom feature is nice because the quality of the picture does not change. However, because it does not pan it cannot move around once zoomed in. I think if you are looking for a camera for a playroom this is the absolute perfect camera as it has a wide panoramic view and a way to mount it on the wall. It also has some fun features; such as, temperature alert, sound alert, melodies, and a way to view all cameras on one screen. Thank you to Weespring Parent Panel for allowing me to try out this monitor!

Great Monitor - It's the little things that drop my rating

Cons

  • Bright Indicator Lights
  • Camera Sensitivity
  • Screen Brightness

    Comments about Vtech 1001126 VTech Expandable Digital Video Baby Monitor with 2 Motorized Lenses Camera - VM5271-2:

    The VTech VM5271-2 Video Monitor was fairly easy for us to setup.
    The picture quality of the cameras was grainy at night but I didn't expect the night vision to be crystal clear. I expected a little better from the day view.
    The zoom feature is excellent. I can zoom in enough that I can see my daughter breathing in her sleep.
    The temperature indicator is very accurate. I set up a thermometer in the nursery to compare and the difference in temperature was only about half a degree. My old monitor was always off by 2 degrees.
    The Parent Unit is easy to use. I am happy with the size of the screen. The unit keeps its charge for a long time. I could probably go all night without having to plug it in. The indicator lights on it are too bright. They light up my bedroom at night. I had to put some painter's tape over them to dim them. The screen on the Parent Unit is also too bright for night use. Even on the dimmest setting it is too bright in the middle of the night.
    I found the sound activation of the cameras can be unreliable at times. If you have the cameras set on the most sensitive setting, the Parent Unit will turn on for the slightest of sounds, such as outside noises. It was so sensitive that I thought it was motion activated at first. This causes the Parent Unit to light up almost all night long. If I decrease the setting, it seems that my daughter has to be screaming before the unit turns on. There have also been times when the screen came on but the sound didn't work, and I had the volume turned all the way up.
    The cameras have green lights on them that flash when that camera isn't currently being used. The lights are bright and blink continuously in the nursery.
    I do like this monitor. All and all it works very well. I am very happy that the temperature reading is accurate and I like to be able to see my daughter when she is sleeping and playing in her room. It is very comforting for me.
    Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this monitor!

        I received this monitor as a gift from the weeSpring Parent Panel, it's such a great monitor. It has a TON of features! I love the fact that it comes with two cameras. Usually they only come with one and you have to spend more money to get another! We have a large house and this was able to be used throughout the whole house, whether in the garage or our bedroom. The temperature was great to be able to monitor to make sure the room stayed cool in the summer heat. I didn't have any issues with the sound not being crystal clear. The only thing that was personally overwhelming was taking everything out of the box. It's a lot of parts and I was worried about install, but it wasn't so bad!

          Comments about Vtech 1001126 VTech Expandable Digital Video Baby Monitor with 2 Motorized Lenses Camera - VM5271-2:

          Received this monitor to try as part of a weeSpring Parenting Panel. I was impressed right out of the box that the unit came with 2 cameras. I understand why. The unit doesn't tilt/ pan to follow a moving baby. And for me it wasn't all that easy to switch between cameras. I got the hang of it, but it takes some playing with. I did like the wide angle viewing. Would be great if you had multiple children napping in one room. As I only have one it was not a huge feature for me. The music options that played through were interesting. A little startling to my child the first time I used it, but I could see how it would be beneficial.

          I think my biggest issue is the range. I have a large property that I have to tend to during nap times. I am very aware where 1000 feet range from our little one's room. This was well short of that. If I had to put a number on it. I would say the realistic range is between 750 and 800 feet. With a range that reduced it made doing anything outside my home nearly impossible while still maintaining an eye on my little one. I'll stick to my Samsung for nearly that feature alone.

          Overall, this was a good monitor for a home with multiple children napping, but as soon as they are on the move I found it less useful.

          Excellent baby monitor!

          Comments about Vtech 1001126 VTech Expandable Digital Video Baby Monitor with 2 Motorized Lenses Camera - VM5271-2:

          I would recommend this baby monitor to anyone needing a good quality monitor! The picture quality is so clear and you can see even the smallest of details including being able to watch your little one breathe, because we all know we do this from time to time! It's doesn't matter what time of day it is, day or night, the picture quality is great! The zoom feature is helpful along with the fact that you can play lullabys straight from the camera itself! That was such a smart idea to combine two necessities! The set up process was very simple and straight forward, yet you have the opportunity to customize it to your liking! Probably the best feature, besides the picture clarity is the fact that there are two cameras! I am able to have one camera on my little ones pack n play and the other in her nursery and no matter where she is, I only need one parent unit to view both cameras! We use our monitor daily and it hasn't let us down. It comes highly recommended by us! Thank you weeSpring Parent Panel for winding us this monitor!

          This baby monitor is amazing! We had a different brand monitor prior to getting this one and I'm so glad we got it! The picture quality is great, day or night! My daughter was a preemie so having the ability to see every little detail with such a clear picture is reassuring. I no longer have to potentially wake her up to check on her by going in her room, I can just check the monitor! It's also so easy to set up. I didn't even have to read the instructions to get it all set to how I wanted it! It's very user friendly. Other features we enjoy are the talk back feature and the lullabys you can play from the camera itself. The ability to play lullabys from the camera saves you from needing a sound machine, which is helpful in a room with very limited outlets. The zoom feature is helpful when needing to get a closer look at baby, again without having to potentially wake them by going in their room! All in all, we highly recommend this baby monitor. It has helped ease my mind and helped me get a better nights sleep knowing I can check on my little one whenever I want! Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this monitor!

            I got a chance to try this monitor as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. Set up of the monitor and two cameras was very easy. The two cameras is nice, however I found that I really only utilize one camera. Maybe two is nice if you have two kids in separate rooms to keep an eye on. I did enjoy the split screen view when we did test out the use of two cameras at one time. However, the sound was funny when we used split screen view. The monitor would not pickup sound when I knew my baby was crying it did not alert me to any sound. I knew the baby was crying because I could hear her, just because our house is not that big and I can hear her if she cry wherever I am in the house. But the monitor did not project any sound to me. This only happened when in split screen mode. The picture quality is quite grainy, but the biggest con to this monitor is that the camera angle has to be adjusted by your hand, you can not use the parent unit to adjust camera. This is a big pain to have to keep going into the baby's room to adjust the camera until you get the right angle. You can however adjust zoom using the parent unit, but this is not nearly as important as being able to adjust the angle. This monitor also has a temperature indicator, which was always spot on with our thermostat, I liked this feature. Parent unit was easy to use and I did enjoy the large screen of the parent unit. I also did use the talk back function and that worked well. I did not use the lullabies that you can play for baby through the speakers on the camera because they sounded too robotic, and not soothing sounding at all.

            Comments about Vtech 1001126 VTech Expandable Digital Video Baby Monitor with 2 Motorized Lenses Camera - VM5271-2:

            This video monitor was so easy to set-up and use. Took just a few minutes. I love that it comes with 2 cameras allowing me to view two separate rooms if needed. The picture quality is clear during day, however I find it's a little grainy at night. Not really a problem as viewing time at night is minimal. I have only used the lullaby feature once, it's a wonderful feature to have but my son prefers the music we already play from another device. The temperature indicator is a great feature to have with an infant! I have found it to be pretty accurate so far. I also love the wide angle lens on these cameras as I can most of the room and can zoom in on the crib when needed. Overall, this is a great video monitor with many features. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this monitor!
