Pan & Tilt
The pan and tilt function on this device is totally silent and will not disturb your kid while moving around. It gives you the ability to pan 300 degrees horizontally and 120 degrees vertically. You can choose to pan and tilt the camera from your smartphone, tablet or computer.
You can save and load up to 8 favorite positions without having to navigate the camera to these positions every time you need to.
Two Way Audio System
Two-way audio system on this device is amazing. It has a built-in microphone and speaker. You can speak through your phone or PC and your little kid can hear you clearly and he/she can talk back to you. Sound quality is good enough and a lot of customers like it.
Night Vision on this model is great and the picture is very clear. If the room doesn't have enough light, the camera will automatically Switch ON the night vision. With night vision activated, you will be able to see clearly up to 25 feet away.
Also, the infrared LEDs around the lens are not visible. You can see little red spots when the room is dark but they are not bright enough to disturb your baby.
