Baby Monitor Guide and Giveaway: Levana- Innovative Monitors For Modern Moms
Baby video monitors are a vital element to getting a good night’s sleep when you become a parent. Leaving your little one in his nursery for the first time can be an overwhelming and emotional task; but finding the right monitor can put your mind to ease. If you’re looking for a reliable, high tech monitor that not only functions at the highest standards but looks sleek and modern in your baby’s nursery, look no further than Levana.
Levana, a branch of the well known security brand name SVAT, introduced the very first color video baby monitor to the world over a decade ago, and continues to be a leader in baby monitors worldwide today. While Levana offers a line of various styles of monitors to suit the needs of every type of parent and fit every style of home, the following are two of our very favorites:
The Lila’s battery life is amazing. Do you use your monitor in the morning while getting ready for work as well as in the evening? You will have plenty of battery life without having to charge in the middle of the day. The Levana Lila monitor will last you for 6 hours while actively viewing your little one. If you put the Lila monitor in PEEP mode you can get up to 72 hours of use! We love this mode because the monitor screen is dark, no need for a distracting light in the bedroom. But, if baby makes a peep the screen lights up so you can see what’s going on without having to do a thing.
LED Night Vision
The Lila monitor will not only keep your room dark, but baby’s room too! The night vision uses invisible infrared LED technology. This produces no red light that will catch your little one’s attention when they stir throughout the night. You can expect the nursery to stay completely dark when you use the Lila Monitor.
The camera can be placed on a tabletop or hung from the wall, ensuring that it will work in any nursery. The easy swivel base the camera rests on when on a tabletop is an added bonus. Quickly swivel the camera from crib to play space depending on where your little one is at the time.
When your little one gets a bit older, and is able to play on their own, the Lila monitor features a two way intercom that will come in handy. Keep a watchful eye on play time and use the intercom to call the kids down for a snack or send a quick reminder to play nicely.
The most lovable thing about the Levana Lila monitor is the price. The Lila monitor is affordable, as you can see here, especially when compared to other video monitors. And even though is is affordable you do not lose any of the reliability you receive from a more expensive monitor.
If you live in a large house and need a monitor that’s signal will span over a much larger distance than most, the Levana “Stella” monitor is the one for you!
The Stella monitor features one of the largest ranges on the market today. It’s maximum transmission range can go up to 750 feet, averaging about 200 feet when the signal passes through walls. In night vision, it can go up to 15 feet with no interference. This is perfect for large houses where your baby’s nursery might be on a different floor than your bedroom.
The Stella boasts a 4.3 ” color monitor screen. So, you won’t have to squint your eyes in the middle of the night to try to figure out if your baby is stirring or not.
Rotating Zoom Camera
The Stella has impressive pan, tilt and zoom functions that are completely controlled by you with easy to use buttons on your handled screen. It can pan 270 degrees horizontally and 110 degrees vertically. And you can zoom in to see every little detail while watching your baby.
Long Battery Life
The Stella handheld screen has a battery life of up to 36 hours when in PEEP mode, and an average of 10 hours when in constant use. PEEP mode gives you the option for your monitor and camera to go into sleep mode when there is no sound in the nursery, and turn back on immediately the second your baby starts to stir.
With the press of a button, you can talk to your baby with Stella’s intercom feature, and let him know you’re on your way.
Stella features 3 built-in lullabies that can be controlled from your handheld monitor.
LED Night Vision
Unlike many monitors, Levana’s Stella has an invisible infrared LED that allows for clear night vision without an annoying red light disturbing your baby’s slumber.
LED Sound Indicator Ring
Stella features an LED sound indicator ring that allows you to turn the volume down on your monitor but still know what your baby is doing by the level of his voice.
Blue – Low Volume/Whispers
Green – Low-Medium Volume/Murmurs
Yellow – Medium Volume/Cooing
Orange – Medium-High Volume/Chatter
Red – High Volume/Yelling
Private Clearvu Digital Signal
Stella has a private and secure signal, that is interference-free. No one can access this signal but you.
4 Camera Capability
With Stella, you have the option and ability to sync 4 different cameras to your monitor. This is the perfect solution for multi-children families.
Installation and Setup
There is virtually no installation and setup for the Stella monitor. Simply plug the camera into a wall outlet in your nursery, and place it on a level surface. You don’t have to drill into walls to hang it. Once your monitor’s battery is fully charged, you’re ready to go!
Sound and Image Quality
The sound and image quality of the Stella monitor go above and beyond. You will be able to hear every little creak in your baby’s nursery, and the full screen and zoom features will let you see every detail of your child up close as if you were in the room with him.
You can purchase additional cameras for the Stella, as well as this handy charging cradle/docking station. When your monitor is not in use or needs charged, simply place it on the charging cradle. The docking station has the capability of charging your monitor as well as an extra battery at the same time, so you will always have a spare!
Why You’ll Love The Stella Monitor
Levana’s Stella monitor truly does have every feature you could possibly want in a video baby monitor. The large screen and pan/tilt/zoom features make it so easy to monitor not only your baby’s crib, but every nook and cranny of his nursery. The camera’s sleek look fits into any style nursery instead of standing out like a sore thumb. And the additional charging cradle makes it extremely convenient to charge you monitor and extra batteries without extra wires or plugs.
