Baby Monitor Guide: Ovia Video Monitor by Levana
When it comes to baby gear and the essentials, many of us moms find that a quality video monitor is one piece of gear that truly makes a difference in our day (and night!). We want something that’s easy to setup and use, offers a clear view of our child day and night, is reliable, and has all the extra features that make life easier. The new Ovia monitor by Levana is sure to fit the bill! The Ovia is a video monitor system with an LCD screen, pan/tilt/zoom functions, the ability to expand up to 4 cameras, and many more great features to love. Read on for a look at all of the great features of this wireless video monitor by Levana.
Large, Crisp LCD Screen
Ovia’s monitor features a 4.3” LCD screen that offers a clear and crisp view of your child so you can see exactly that he’s up to. Touch panel controls make it easy to switch between settings and customize the setup.
You can control the cameras with a simple push of a button on the monitor. You can pan, tilt, and even zoom the camera (“PTZ”). This feature makes setting up your monitors easy as there’s no need to put the camera way on the other side of the room just to get everything in view like most monitors that don’t pan. You’ll be able to pan 270° horizontally, 110° vertically, and zoom in 2x the distance. What’s more, moving the camera is virtually silent so you don’t need to worry about waking your little one. (The bottom of the camera has holes for wall mounting if desired.)
Strong & Secure Signal
Ovia uses ClearVu technology designed just for Levana to ensure a strong signal up to 750ft. This technology also means that you don’t have to worry about the monitor signal being intercepted or interfered with by others.
A Talk to Baby feature lets you comfort your child without going into her room. This is an especially great feature for use with toddlers when you need to remind them that they should be sleeping. (As many moms can attest, sometimes going in just seems to make things worse!) Another great use for this feature? You can talk (rather than yelling back and forth) to your partner when they’re in the nursery!
Nighttime Infrared Technology
Ovia’s IR technology allows you to check in on your child from up to 15ft away at night, a distance that easily satisfies most rooms. The infrared LEDs on your monitor will automatically activate when light levels are low enough. And perhaps the best spec of Ovia’s IR technology is that the LEDs are invisible—no distracting red lights in the middle of the night to catch your baby’s attention.
Expandable for multiple children
Levana’s Ovia baby monitor system can be expanded up to four monitors. This feature is a must-have for growing families. Extra monitors can also be useful for placing in the playroom or other locations around the house that you want to monitor, or you can add multiple cameras to a single nursery. You can then view the feeds of individual cameras or watch all at once with Ovia’s quad view.
Battery Life & PEEP Mode
Fully charged, the Ovia monitor is good for up to 8 hours in PEEP mode. With PEEP mode enabled, the monitor will conserve power after one minute of inactivity. In full PEEP mode, the monitor will only activate when your baby makes a noise. Or you can choose from three other levels of sensitivity — Low, Medium, and Very Sensitive.
More Great Features & Accessories
Picture and Video Capture — Ever spot your little one on the monitor doing something adorable — like rocking their doll or singing a song? Usually these precious moments don’t last long, but with Ovia’s photo and video features you can capture these moments. The monitor system comes with a micro SD card you can store photos and videos on for playback until you transfer them onto your computer with the SD adapter.
LED indicator ring — the LED Ring on the front of the monitor indicates the volume of the noise, a great feature to let you know what’s going on even when the monitor is on mute. Five different colors signal the volume, from low volume noises like whispers to the highest volume such as yelling.
Lullabies — You can trigger a lullaby from the remote to play for your little one. Choose between Canon, Brahm’s Lullaby, or Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
Wireless battery dock — This is a great accessory (sold separately) to add to the monitor system. Turn one of your cameras into a cordless camera and monitor your baby up to 4 hours (great for quick setup during naps when you’re traveling) with Levana’s wireless camera dock. Just plug the dock into an outlet when you need to recharge it.
Monitor charging cradle — The charging cradle is also an optional accessory that’s great to have when on the go. It comes with an extra backup battery.
The new Ovia Baby Monitor System by Levana is perfect for the family looking for a full-featured monitor system that is intuitive, reliable, and expandable. With a crisp LCD monitor, pan/tilt/zoom camera features, sophisticated night vision, and the option to add up to four cameras, Ovia will not disappoint.
