The best review Optics DXR-8 Pro baby monitors no wifi
The original infant optics. DXR eight is one of the best-selling monitors ever made toughing, multiple baby registries on baby list to Amazon and other retailers. Now, when I talked about it a couple of years back, it was great, but it felt that it could use an update. Well, the update is finally here, but the DXR eight. Let’s check it out.
Andrew, here with dad verb up until now. The only non-connected monitor that I’ve recommended is the UV space view. I haven’t really changed my stance on that for like two years or so, but I can honestly say that the new DXR eight pro is my new favorite non-connected monitor moving forward. I do have to know that this monitor was provided to me by infant optics. And I’m actively trying to get the brand to sponsor more videos along with this entire channel.
But it’s because this is something that I genuinely believe in. And I think it’s something that parents will scoop up and enjoy. So to start, let’s take a look at what’s inside the box. Really. It’s pretty simple, which is a good thing. You’ve got the camera and the accompanying parent unit, uh, the power supply for both nicely labeled to limit confusion, a zoom lens, a USB plug to connect it to a computer or a power bank and a screw to Mount it for a top down view.
So first let’s go over the camera off the bat. The biggest improvement here that we’ll notice from the original DXR is the quality. We’re not looking at a seven 20 P picture, which in comparison to other non-connected monitors in the category is among the best that you’ll see. It’s much less muddy, not nearly as choppy and yields a pretty crisp image.
No, this isn’t a 4k image, but guess what? It doesn’t need to be for parents looking to just drop in on their baby. This delivers on exactly what you need it for. And it’s far better than what was previously available to other parents comparing the image to UV. They are quite similar, but I would give the edge to infant optics here. The camera comes with an interchangeable zoom lens and for a little extra, you can actually get a wide angle lens to add on.
It’s pretty neat to be able to adapt it for multiple fields of view because you know, every nursery is going to be different, but personally, for our use, we didn’t need any of the other lenses that were available. We just liked the standard events at it came with a lot of connected monitors are locked into a crib view, but here you actually still have pan tilt and zoom functions, which is great, particularly, uh, when you get into the toddler stage and you want a broader view of the room. So that about covers the camera.
Next let’s move on to the parent unit. Uh, in addition to the seven 20 P display, the screen size has also increased to five inches, which is a lot more convenient at the top is the power and sleep button along with dedicated buttons for brightness and volume on the right, are your buttons for panning and tilting zoom, uh, the push to talk function, and then your menu where you can set alarms at cameras and more, and I haven’t tested it yet, but you can connect up to four monitors here.
So that is great for twins are monitoring multiple rooms on the left is a light indicator that reacts to sounds and crying. It’s always nice to have visuals paired with the sound. And lastly, at the rears, a stand, which you can open up and wrestle on your nightstand or any other surface. I do want to make one quick note here. That’s always bugged me about the UV space view, and that is the volume button.
Oddly enough, intuitively you want to go this way to make it louder and this way to make it softer with [inaudible]. They actually always had those buttons flipped, which I never got used to. So thanks to infant optics for getting that right. I mean, overall, this is a great parent unit. There’s, there’s nothing there’s nothing really to complain about here. Uh, the last thing that I do want to highlight though, is the increased signal range, which can now go up to a thousand feet compared to the 700 feet of its predecessors.
So that’s a good jump and testing it. I was actually able to maintain signal throughout my house. I had to walk a bit down the road before I started to actually lose that signal. And by the way, I’ve got the monitor at linked below buying through that link helps support this channel to no additional cost to you guys. So if you do end up pulling the trigger on the DXR eight pro, please consider buying through the link in the description. Thank you. All right, battery life.
That’s another thing that you’re going to be considering when buying a monitor with a dedicated parent unit during testing, I accidentally forgot to plug the Jack in all the way I woke up the next morning to find that the battery wasn’t dead, but it had been, uh, reduced quite a bit. Uh, and it continued to run for me actually it later throughout the morning, uh, before it started giving off this chime, uh, warning me of a low battery.
So if you need it to, I think it can give you probably around 10 hours or so, probably even more as it did for me, as I’ve mentioned in a lot of previous videos, background, audio monitoring is a very important feature that I look for. Um, when the video feed is asleep, I still like to listen for the baby, but unique to the DX. IRA pro is a new feature called active noise reduction.
Now this is really interesting because one issue with some audio monitors is that sometimes it blends the background sounds with the sounds from the baby, making it kind of hard to hear. And I particularly found that to be an issue with the hatch rest. Plus, as we used it for sound monitoring with the pro, you now have the option to enable the active noise reduction feature to filter out the background sounds like fans or purifiers can clearly hear the baby.
Yeah, you can just leave that feature off, but it is nice to have in your back pocket. So who is this monitor for as many monitors as I’ve reviewed, I’ve come to find that a lot of parents just don’t have an appetite or need for the features of connected monitors like a Nanit or MICU or any of that bunch. They don’t need breathing, monitoring, or sleep analytics.
They just want something simple and reliable. They just want to hear the baby and they want to see the baby. And that’s what you’re getting here from a brand that is trusted within the baby product space. I’d say the only downside here is there’s no remote monitoring. Other than that, it’s a pretty perfect monitor. Also for anyone have fears of security or privacy. This is going to be a monitor that you want to pick up simply because it’s not connected via wifi.
The box itself actually declared it as hack proof, which may be something that parents can take comfort in. Another thing to know is that you’re going to get a lot more reliability out of a monitor like this compared to any other connected option.
Even my Nana, that a hell of so dearly, even that is susceptible to occasional connection drops as not going to be the case here with infant optics, that that’s just the advantage of non-connected option. And that lastly, while this is a great monitor for home, it’s also a perfect companion for travel set up as easy as it is, plug and play. And you don’t have to go through the trouble of logging in through an app and doing the whole pairing process. You can get your portable crib and your monitor all set up in a matter of seconds to round it out.
I will say that, yes, this is a pricey registry item at 199, but it is on par with other options that you’re going to find around, buy, buy baby and target and Amazon. I understand that it might be hard to pull the trigger on just on any pricey monitor, but I will legit say that if you go with this one, this is definitely going to be a nursery staple that you will not regret.

The best review VAVA baby monitors non-wifi
Hey guys, welcome back to my channel. Today’s video is going to be a little bit different.
Today I’m going to be taking a break from the makeup and I’m gonna be showing you guys and talking to you guys all about my baby monitoring system that I’ve been using for a couple of months now. So it’s just gonna be a quick little review and talking to you guys about it.
My daughter is asleep right now, so if I sound like I’m a little bit quiet, that is why. But yeah, if you guys wanna see what baby monitoring system that I use, then just keep on watching. Okay, so today I’m gonna be talking to you guys about my monitoring system and I’m gonna show you guys real quick the box. Whoa. This is the box right here.
This is the VAVA baby monitoring system. And I’m absolutely in love with it. It is such a great monitor. This right here is exactly what the camera looks like. Excuse this mark. My little one went ahead and colored on it because that’s her new favorite thing to do, color on everything. But this is exactly what the camera looks like here. I don’t have it on me because like I said, she’s napping so I’m using it on her.
But it looks exactly like this and this camera here is able to move up and down and then it also is able to do a whole complete spin around to pan around your room. So yeah, I just wanted to show you guys really quick what the camera looked like because like I said, I don’t have it on me. But let me talk to you guys about the actual little camera. So the camera, as I said, is able to move up and down and then it pans all around your entire room, which is amazing.
It comes with the little lens that it originally comes with. I purchased on my own a wide-angle camera lens because of course, it’s awesome to be able to pan around a room and zoom in and all that stuff if you need to but for me, I kinda wanted something that I was able to just hook up and see everything, which is why I purchased the wide-angle lens. And with that, I’m able to just look at her entire room without having to pan around and look for her if she’s in a different area where the camera is not facing.
So that’s what was awesome about the actual lens. It does come with a regular lens as I said. If you’re just using it just as they sleep above their crib or whatnot but for me, I was using it a lot for her playroom. Now that she’s a little bit older, she’s almost two, I let her play in her playroom if I have things that I have to do, like cleaning or things around the house.
I let her be in her room without having to sit in there and just watch here. I’m able to just hook up her monitor and watch her as I do whatever I need to do. Another thing it has is a microphone on the actual camera, so if she’s talking or saying anything or calling for me, I’m able to hear her perfectly because there is a camera on the, there’s a camera, there’s a microphone on that camera.
So I’m able to hear her whenever she speaks or if she needed me or if she was stuck or any kind of thing going on, I would be able to hear her, which is something also that I loved. But yeah, that’s pretty much the whole little camera system. I’m gonna talk to you guys now about the screen, which is this and I do have the screen right here.
It is a five-inch screen, which is something that I loved, which was something that I wanted because I wanted something that was big and I’m able to just look at the screen and see what’s going on. My previous monitor was pretty small, so I really had to really look to see what was going on, which this one I can just take a quick peek and see.
On this monitor, you have, of course, the menu button, which you’re able to set it however you wanna set it. And then it has your zoom button and then it has your little roll here where you’re able to pan around the room and see what’s going on your arrows. And then down here, it is your talk button, which now I’m able to push and talk to her.
I just pushed it on accident. So I’m able to push the button and talk to her while she’s doing whatever she’s doing. She doesn’t have to push a button, I can easily just hear her talking, which I’m sure that’s commonsense but I’m just gonna mention it anyway. So I’m able to talk to her here. And be like hey, don’t do that or hey, I’m coming.
Whatever the situation may be. As I said, I only use it for playtime in her room and when she’s napping. So right now, she is napping, so I can show you guys quickly what that looks like. Another thing that I like is this one has, of course, they have the day and night mode. So in her playroom, it’s in day mode but once she’s asleep and it’s dark, the theme is automatic.
So the camera knows on its own that it needs to shift into night mode and it does that automatically. I don’t have to switch it. With previous monitors that I had, I had to actually go in there and put it in night mode, where this one is smart enough that it just automatically goes straight into night mode, which is something that I absolutely love.
So right now, as I said, she’s napping, it’s dark in there and it’s in night mode. And you can see her right there. And the screen, as I said, it’s so big. What I love is that the screen is so big, it is so crystal clear that you can see everything going on. You can even see her breathing, which is something that I love because, for the longest time, I wouldn’t even let her nap alone because I wanted to watch her as she slept. So this took a really long time for me to leave her in the room by herself.
First-time mom, I was paranoid, I was scared. Now I’m more comfortable because if you look at the monitor, it’s so clear that I can see her as she’s breathing and it gives me so much comfort being able to see that.
It also, what was I gonna say?
It’s such a big screen but what I like is that it doesn’t have much weight to it. So if I’m walking around the house, I’m able to just carry it along with me with my phone and it’s not heavy but it’s big is what I like. It has a wide range for you, I believe it’s like 900 feet where you can take it away.
So if I let my dogs go outside really quick to use the restroom, I can walk out there, stand on the porch and hold the monitor and there’s no fuzziness, nothing going on like that. I can walk around my whole entire room into my garage, whatever the case, whatever I’m doing and the monitor is still crystal clear, no fuzziness. It has a very large range, which is what I love.
For the most part, I just have it, it has a little kickstand. For the most part, I just have it sitting up on wherever I am and I’m just watching her, which is another thing that it like is that it has this little kickstand so you’re able to prop it up anywhere you want. And then it also, let me see if I’m missing anything that it says here on the box. It is an HD camera.
I don’t know if I mentioned that already but it is HD. You can tell. It’s super crisp, super clear. It’s very much HD. It has a very long charge to it as well. I can get away with using it for about two and a half days in a row before having to recharge it again, which is something that I like to because I do forget to plug it in every night because I do not use it at night.
Her crib is in our bedroom right next to my bed. So I’m able to just peak in myself. So I do tend to forget to charge it at night, which is great that it lasts so long. It does have an alarm function on it, which I never use. I don’t use the alarm function on it but it does have that. And then, of course, I mentioned the lens, how you’re able to change it, which is amazing because you can have the standard lens that it comes with or the wide-angle lens.
It says 100% digital privacy, no video or sound passed through the internet, which is another thing that’s awesome because you don’t want any of that stuff going on with your child. Another thing that it has is if say you have a second child and you need to watch both of them, you do not need to purchase a whole second system, you can just purchase an extra, let me place this down real quick, you can just purchase an extra camera like this and you’re able to connect both of them up.
I believe it’s you can have four of them connected to one monitor at a time and you’re able to switch back and forth. I believe I heard, I don’t have, I only have one child, so I haven’t had to use that function but I believe they said you can do like split screens and watch them all at the same time, which I think is amazing because monitoring systems are pretty pricey and you don’t wanna have to buy more than one if you have more than one child.
So I thought that that was a great thing that all you would need to purchase is a second camera, which is another thing we were considering doing because I have one in our bedroom at all times and I like to have one in her playroom instead of having to constantly take it back and forth. It’s kind of a pain in the butt.
So that’s another thing we’re planning on purchasing is a second camera. But I don’t think I missed anything about it. Yeah, up to four cameras are what it says on here. Yeah, I believe that’s everything about it. In the box, it just comes with your charger, your monitoring screen, and then the camera, plus of course, all the instructions that it comes within there.
And very simple to set up. It’s easy. That’s another thing that I like was that it was easy to set up. My previous ones, like I keep saying my previous ones, were not very easy to set up.
You just want something that’s quick and easy because you’re just trying to watch your child and make sure it looks good, right?
So in my opinion, this has been by far the best camera that I have purchased. I did purchase this on Amazon because I wanted it fast. I believe it is the same price on their website as it is on Amazon. I just wanted it to come quickly. And I believe it was about 165. Yeah, 165, and then as I said, I also purchased the wide-angle lens on Amazon as well, which was very affordable. That was only 6.99. $6.99, which you can’t beat. So I purchased that. I do have both lenses now. But for the most part, it is on the wide-angle lens.
But yeah, so I think that’s pretty much everything about this camera. What I would say is my absolute favorite, of course, is the big screen and how clear it is. You guys, as I said, you can literally see her taking her breaths as she’s asleep. And that’s something that I love. That’s how you know it is super clear and super amazing. So if you guys are in the market for, oh, I did leave one thing out as well.
It shows up here on the monitor the degrees it is in the room and then it also has the little moon here, which is telling me that it’s in night vision and then of course, the time and your battery. And then, of course, the bars that you have here and then it does have this antenna. So that’s pretty much it. So if you guys are in the market for a baby monitoring system, I would highly suggest the VAVA monitoring system because it’s amazing.
You will not be disappointed. And it’s pretty affordable for all the things that you get with it and all the things that it does offer as well. So yeah, that’s pretty much it. If you guys have any questions on the monitoring system, anything that I may have left out, feel free to leave that down below and I would love to get back to you guys on that.
If you have any other questions, any other things you guys would like to see, feel free to leave that down below as well. And I don’t think I have anything else to say, other than I hope that you subscribe if you haven’t already, like this video if you liked it, and don’t forget to turn on your post notifications so that you know every time I upload a video. And we hope to see you at the next one. Bye.

Hey guys, it’s Julie from Baby Nav. And today I’m really excited to share with you a product, that I think might ease your minds a little bit, and will definitely ease some of your nighttime worries.
This is the Angelcare, Wireless, Baby Movement Monitor. So this Angelcare monitor has a really great, 4.3 inch, touch screen monitor. And this monitor is going to monitor, movement, audio, and video. And I really love the touch screen parent unit.
But first, I have to tell you, what is so unique about this monitor and the whole system. It includes the only wireless sensor pad, that’s on the market. So this little sensor pad right here, is how the unit monitors the movement. This literally comes out of the box, You’re going to put the battery in that comes with it, you’re going to slide this under the crib mattress, and then it will literally alert you if the baby does not move for 20 seconds. It’s really that simple. And it’s totally and completely wireless.
Which is so great, so it’s one less thing you have to worry about, which that you have some cords, and that you have to keep them all, you know, pushed back and down, where they’re supposed to be in the crib. You don’t have to worry about this, it’s going to use Wi-Fi, it’s gonna connect to this unit, right out of the box.
The pair immediately. Like it literally happened immediately when I took them out and turned this on. And you’re going to have the movement monitor. So some other great things about this monitor, are that it does have, on the touch screen parent unit, a color-changing, room temperature display. So you’re gonna go in here… It’s literally this touch screen is so easy, you literally just touch it, you’ll see that there’s the main menu there, for settings.
You’re gonna see that there’s the volume, and there are the pan and zoom, and all this stuff is here. But you are literally gonna go into the settings, and you’re going to set the temperature. So whatever temperature you set it at, the color-changing unit it will get blue if it’s too cold, according to your settings, and it will get red if it’s too hot.
So you’re gonna be able to easily see, that baby is comfortable and where you want them to be. It’s able to be, with the camera unit, it’s able to be wall-mounted, so I just have it on the tabletop, so it’s able to be wall-mounted, it comes with the unit to do the wall mounting. Or with that simple magnet, it’s able to be a tabletop mount.
Now, one thing I just want to remind everybody, there is a chord, because this does need to be powered, and this does have wireless. All wires need to be at least three feet away from the crib. But with this Angelcare monitor, you’re not going to worry about that.
