I was given the opportunity to try out this camera monitor, and I'm very glad to have it! This is a great secondary monitor for those 'on the go' days. I was able to dock it in my living room and see my toddler while i was doing laundry, being able to see AND hear is a fabulous thing. It has been great for the weekends when she's at Nana's, perfect to throw in the bag and take along for the ride. This will be great to take on vacation where the cabin doesn't have internet, since this camera doesn't require wi-fi we'll be able to see her when shes napping and we want to sit on the deck on the other side of the house. We had a little trouble adjusting it to find the sweet spot but once we figured it out we had a great shot of our little one. I would definitely recommend this to other parents, but mainly as a supplemental monitor to use as a backup, its not extremely convenient to have to switch to a separate wi-fi simply for the camera since it prohibits use of most features on the device (internet, email, streaming) Please note, I received this item at a discount or free in exchange for an unbiased review.

Things got off to a great start with this monitor. The price was fantastic. The app was easy to download and pair with the camera. The monitor is basically plug up, turn on and you're set up. That's where the ease of this product ends. The connectivity is terrible. There is a hissing sound 100% of the time. It also flickers between dark and light screens constantly and has a delay on the sounds and some movement. Unless I am standing within 6 feet of the nursery the camera feed can't be seen from the app and when it drops connection I have to go in the nursery and power off and on the actual camera to reconnect. This camera had so much potential but just fell flat. Save time and skip this monitor. You'd be better off just sitting outside the nursery because that's what this one forces you to do.

Unit stopped working in middle of night!
Comments about Summer Infant LIV Cam On-the-Go Video Baby Monitor - 29560:
My husband and I were looking for an inexpensive monitor that would work with both of our phones (I have iPhone and he has android) for our small apartment. First, we did not believe the product worked at all! The directions indicates that product should be fully charged and ready to use, but it turned on and almost immediately off, causing my husband to begin looking at reviews on the product's actual website. I recommend you do this PRIOR to wasting your money because the reviews are mostly terrible.But, I wanted to believe Babies'R'Us would not carry this product if it was as bad as reported, so we continued to mess around with the unit - maybe just user error? We did get the product working, and it worked pretty well! There was a lag time, but only of a few seconds - nothing I was worried about. We tested it for a while, while we were awake, to make sure it continued to work well.That night, we went to bed with the monitor working perfectly! I was happy to be going go sleep in my own bed for the first time since bringing baby home and felt secure that I would hear if he cried. When I woke up at midnight for a feeding, monitor was working fine. But then at 4am, I heard my baby crying. I looked at the iPad and found "internet connection lost" on the screen. THE UNIT STOPPED WORKING! Luckily we live in a small apartment and I wasn't in a heavy sleep otherwise my baby could have been left crying for a long time! Do not put your child in the position of not being heard or attended to in a timely manner because of this product!!!

Would NOT recommend this product!!!
About Me First Time Parent
I used this camera for one night and HATED it! On the packaging it says do not need WiFi or date usage in order to use the camera. What they don't tell you is you have to disconnect from your home WiFi in order to connect to the camera. Therefore- my phone would no longer work on any other app because to my phone it realized a connection but there was nothing to connect to besides the camera. The video goes out when I locked my phone and could not hear my baby anymore. There is TERRIBLE range of connection on it. I was 2 rooms away and could not pick up the camera. And the suction cup is horrible! Would not stick to anything I put it on. The simple saying "You get what you paid for" really comes into play with this product. Spend the extra $30 and get a good quality camera with a monitor... DON'T BUY THIS!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Uses WiFi and Data
By New Mommy
from La Mesa
I got this camera because it was cheaper than most, and I knew it was only cheaper in price because it's not sold with a monitor screen, you use it with your smart phone which I thought was pretty smart. The quality of picture and sound I thought were great, but it specifically says it does not require WiFi or cost you data charges... here's how that's false: To connect to the camera via the free app you download to use it, you must go under your WiFi settings and DISconnect from your home WiFi, and connect to the cameras "WiFi", thus running up data charges on your phone. So as long as you're using it you are using data charges (unless you have unlimited on your phone plan). Plus, it freezes as soon as I go outside... really bummed out that it's not what I expected.
from Los Angeles
I love that it can be charged and used wireless! Great picture quality. Now I can keep an out on my son while he plays in his room without having to sit with him
from Sacramento, CA
This seemed like a good value for a baby monitor, but the range and connectivity of the monitor isn't that great, plus there is a few seconds of delay.Also there is always some type of static noise even when there is no noise in the room.Sometimes the night vision/day vision flickers off and on.
Not for me
from Burr Ridge, IL
It's really not fair for me to give one star, but I'll explain why I did. The camera works fine, but only for short distances. I was trying to use it in the baby's room while I was downstairs, which is not possible (signal too weak). This camera, by the way, is extremely easy to set up. I ended up not being able to use this camera and bought a different Summer Infant product. I have the Summer Infant Baby Touch Wifi monitor system, which I love.
Not what i expected
from New Jersey
I was really excited about this thinkng i had found a good solution to view my child on my iphone. This was extremely easy to set up and use, however the distance one could go was not very far so i was very disappointed. I literally went 2 rooms down in our house and knocked off the wifi. I ended up returning because of this and am going with a drop cam instead.
Great on the go monitor!
What appealed to me about this monitor was it's portability and it seemed easy to use. This monitor does not use wifi and it is cordless. When you open up the box everything is layed out for you and the instructions are easy to use. You simply download the app and you monitor your child on your phone vs your traditional monitor with cords. I recently went on a camping trip and it worked amazing! I was able to keep my child inside our cabin in the AC and away from all the bugs while she napped and I was able to watch her while my other children played outside. Of course I was right outside the cabin in case she cried or needed me. The night vision is also great. I have also used this at home while my daughter was napping and I was outside with the other children. We have already used this quite a bit this summer. It is a must have! Note, I received this monitor for my honest review.
from Pawtucket Rhode Island
This on the go monitor I found this to be super easy to set up. One of my main issues I had with video monitors was the fear that someone can hack in and watch my child sleep. With this one I really was hoping the product was good quality because I really like the idea that it didn't use wifi. I'm glad I wasn't disappointed!!!!! You can see good at night I can snap pictures if I needed to. Also my husband can watch the video at the same time as I am. To set up the app only takes a few minutes which I loooove!!! It is great to take camping I used it when my daughter was asleep in the camper and we sat outside. Also it's very convenient to just grab and throw it in the diaper bag, I bring it everywhere and now I don't have to run back and forth to check on on my daughter when She falls asleep at family members or friends houses. Even my husband loves it and thinks it easy enough to use himself! I use it all the time and think it's a great product.
