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:

      I really like this monitor. I'm currently using only one camera, but as my little one gets more mobile, it's nice to have the extra available (or maybe for a 2nd child in the future). I was surprised by how good the camera quality is, especially during nighttime. It's not quite as clear during the day when there's more light in the room. I also like the zoom feature. Another feature I use a lot, which I didn't think I would, is the lullaby. There are 9 to choose from , or a setting that cycles through them all. When my LO starts to wake up, I turn it on and many times he'll fall right back to sleep. It's on a timer so it automatically turns off after 10 minutes. The parent unit is also really nice. The screen is large and has the ability to display multiple cameras at once. You can also use the unit to talk to your child. My favorite feature is the ability to control the sensitivity of the camera and use the sound-activated screen setting. The screen on the parent unit will "sleep" until it detects a sound. This is great in the middle of the night as it'll automatically turn on if he makes a sound and I can see what's happening in his room without having to find the correct button. Thanks to the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this monitor!

      This monitor was really easy to set up and use. I love that the buttons light up so if it is already dark you don't have to turn on a light. I love that there are two cameras so you can see the whole room. The range was really good and I loved that you could talk back to your baby! It was also nice to be able to turn off the screen and be alerted by movement and then turn it back on since the screen was so bright. I wish there was a dimmer on the screen but it's nice to at least have the other feature. At this price point I expected a bit higher video quality, but overall it was fine. I am grateful that weeSpring parent panel sent it to me to test out.

      I received this monitor to try as a part of the WeeSpring Parent Panel. I love that it came with two cameras and hardware to install/mount on a wall. I do not like that you cannot tilt or pan like my previous cameras, while you are able to zoom, if your baby moves to a side of the crib that isn't in the zoomed in area you aren't able to see them (unless your camera is mounted far enough away so that you can see the entire crib when zoomed in, and if that's the case you aren't able to zoom in enough to see your baby's chest rise and fall if you're checking). Another thing I do not like is that the screen goes white when alternating between the different cameras, when in the patrol mode. If the monitor is on at night the white screen brightens up a dark room. While I like the large monitor, the temperature gauge and the mounting hardware I'd prefer to have a pan/tilt feature on a camera for better visuals of smaller details.

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

      Having two cameras in the nursery really helps me get good angles of my daughter to make sure she is sleeping safely. I like that I can position the cameras in different corners of the room to get a large view and be able to utilize the zoom in and out features to see my daughter. The handheld parent monitor has a screen that is huge and I can clearly see my daughter in it where as other parent units that I've tried have a tiny screen. Although I didn't use these features I find it convenient that there is a lullaby and white noise feature on the device. There is also a talkback feature where you can talk to your child via the Camera in the room but I haven't felt the need to use this yet. One flaw that I've found is that if you turn the cameras off the parental unit beeps which I understand is probably a security feature however it doesn't stop beeping unless you disconnect the monitor from the charging device. unless you disconnect the monitor from the charging device. Thank you to the weeSpring Parent Panel for giving me an opportunity to try out this camera! We stored our old one away and have been using this ever since.

      Good video monitor system with 2 cameras

      Pros

      • Comes with 2 cameras

      • Video turns on when motion is detected

      • Grainy LCD screen

      • Can view 2 rooms on parent monitor

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

      I liked how this system came with 2 cameras so we could set one up on our 3rd floor, in our daughters bedroom, and on our main floor, play area. The parent unit is a large 5" LCD screen which I liked. Unfortunately the resolution was poor and very grainy. I really liked the motion detection feature so I could take a quick shower while my daughter was napping and if motion was detected in the nursery the video monitor would turn on. Another great feature is the ability to add additional cameras to the system which is great for a growing family. I found the temperature indicator to be accurate. 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:

        Quick and easy set up with clear instructions. I absolutely love the talk back feature. Our sons room is at the other end of the house and there is no issue with connection range which is awesome because our other cheap monitor ended up breaking not once but twice and couldn't handle the range from our bedroom to our sons bedroom. This VTech expandable digital monitor has hands down been a lifesaver. I am very pleased with it and all the other cool features like the temperature sensor, the keys light up so no fumbling around guessing what your pressing, zoom and a wide angle.

        With the double cameras I had one set up in my sons bedroom and the other in the living room pointed towards the play yard. I had a sense of security knowing that I can watch my little one in the rooms we spend the most time in.

        I have to thank the weeSpring Parent Panel for sending me this video monitor to test out.

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

        I love that this monitor has lullabies, and a wide angle. I wish you could tilt and pan though. At night the picture is pretty fuzzy and the screen is quite bright. It would be nice if the parent screen had a dimmer or something like that. On the other hand you can turn screen off and the monitor will alert you when there's movement, so definitely a plus there. Both cameras we're able to see every spot in her room which I LOVE! I would definitely recommend it, but don't expect like some great hd picture! Thanks to weespring parent panel for sending me this fabulous monitor to try!

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

        Pros - high resolution screen, dual cameras, optical zoom, two-way intercom, night vision, high-quality feel

        Cons - the display unit is large (makes display easy to see and buttons easy to use, however, it is cumbersome to carry around and feels like you need two hands to hold it and operate it)

        I've used several different monitors and have always felt frustrated by their lack of quality. This feels like a high-quality unit with well designed features. I have my fingers crossed that power connections and rechargeable battery will continue to work well. My experience is that they often stop operating after about one year. Overall, I really like this monitor, and I would definitely recommend it to a friend. 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! This monitor is awesome! The picture isn't the clearest but that's okay because I don't really need to see perfect details as long as I can see my son. Very easy to set up! I love the fact that you can talk through the monitor or play lullabies for your baby! I also like that it displays the accurate temperature in the room and you can zoom in and out to view baby better. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family!
